The title of the book throws one off-balance at the first moment - what will that be? Some suicidal narrative by a decadent delinquent? Surprisingly it is in a fact a gripping semi-autobiographical philosophical blockbuster, a metaphysical page-turner. The ideas presented by the author are scandalously anti-general consensus, the style and logic, scanalously anti-intellectual. And yet, when i closed the book, i though, "could this be true? Could he be right? Are we all in deep denial, sacrificing other people for the sake of our piece of mind?" The idea haunts me.

The author's thoughts are a lot less profound than he seems to think they are. Here's an example of the low quality of both writing and content: "If we accept the theory, that we humans have evolved from a slightly different animal species, although we know next to nothing of this mystical animal species, I think it is safe to assume, that the difference between us and them, is as big, if not bigger, than the difference between my dog and the original wolf-like wild beasts."

Information wants to be free, so make some free information.
