First things first, do not let your hating or loving America be the only reason you read or do not read this book, because it has absolutely nothing to do with or say about the U.S. 

With the randomly selected topics and the randomly arranged writings herein, Mokokoma's goal is simple: to encourage independent thinking and non-conformity.

About the Author:

Mokokoma Mokhonoana is a philosopher and a social critic. His work is generally an attempt to link human suffering to our thinking or, at times, lack thereof. He strongly believes that human suffering could ultimately be dramatically reduced if not eradicated if we invest in developing a society of Independent Thinkers. Granted, thinking isn't everything, and some people might even go so far as to say that thinking alone will not solve anything. Having said that, he believes that at the core of every single thing that breeds human suffering lies either or both of the following: (1) THINKING, i.e., human deeds, which were bred by our thinking, or, lack thereof; and (2) PERSPECTIVE, i.e., the attitude that we have towards things that breed our suffering, e.g., death. An attitude that is, of course, attributable to nothing but our thinking (which was shaped by our cultural conditioning). Mokokoma studies human beings. And from some of his observations, he either writes or draws. He shares his observations through aphorisms, essays, and cartoons. He was born, bred, and is based, within the bounds of some invention called South Africa.
