I read the Quest first and then logged back on to read all the reviews. I'd never done that before. I'd expected to see some thoughtful reactions and, of course, I have.
What left me "stunned" were the viciously ignorant ravings of the one-star reviewers. My first thought was that they must be part of a deliberate campaign - okay, conspiracy - to shout the author down. My second thought was, "No,a deliberate campaign would suggest a measure of intelligent planning, arming them with facts, encouraging them to sound as if they'd actually read the book, etc."
So instead I'm just saddened to realize that there are some dangerously stupid people out there. I say saddened, but not surprised, and I do mean dangerous. Throughout history, tyrants seem to have had no trouble recruiting death squads numbering in the tens of thousands. They were recruited, I'm sure, from the
same simple minded idiots who are writing those one star reviews.
This was a well thought out and factual book. I am well aquainted with the Dynion Mwyn group in North Wales, and this book describes their religious philosophy very even handedly. Haven't met the author or anyone from his group in the US, but hope to when I visit in December.
