Going from these rebels, author Corvis Nocturnum, treats us to a light biography of several free thinkers who dared to defy tradition. Starting off with Hassan Ibn Sabah who was the leader of the assassins. He formulated a system of thought that spoke of nothing being true and everything being permitted. Man made doctrine was false and meant to control man. The assassins would later link up with the Templars and teach them their arcane knowledge. This would make it's way to the Mason and the Illuminati. Let us not forget that the forefathers of the US were freemason who believed in creating a free society where the individual was allowed to pursue his own growth.
Other figure would include Nietzsche, Von List , Anton La Vey as well as a slew of Greek philosophers andother free thinkers. Many who have grown up in the Western Lands decry Christianity's hold on our psyche and how it has hobbled us and weakened us. It has blocked us from pursuing our own potential and has forced us into directing our energies into group or church related efforts.
Time has come to break free from that mental bondage and throw off the mental shackles. But doing so may not be easy. There are still dangers. The book was entertaining and easy to read. I could have used a work that went a bit more in depth. Cool as a starting point but someone who has read this previously will find nothingnew. There were also several editing mistakes which detracts from the professionalism of the book.
