The Most Dangerous Superstition: A Book Review

The Most Dangerous Superstition is one of the most important books ever written. I would recommend this book to everyone, even though many may not be ready to let go of their lifelong indoctrination of the most dangerous superstition just yet; it’s an enlightening read. I have been following Larken Rose’s work for the past several years, but it wasn’t until recently I purchase a copy of his book. Those who suffer from cognitive dissonance criticize Larken because he speaks plainly, in simple language and uses simple analogies and real-world examples that even a child can understand. It is impossible to deny this technique is effective in breaking down the mythos surrounding the belief in authority.

The main reason people object to a lot of Larken’s positions, like this book, is because most of the population has little to no concept of ‘Natural Law.’ To learn more about this topic, I highly suggest looking into the work of Mark Passio. I have been following Mark’s work far longer than I have Rose’s, so when I read this book, the entire thing was blatant common sense. When you familiarize yourself with the inherent truth of Natural Law you can ultimately only draw one conclusion, that the dogmatic belief in authority is both immoral and illogical.

Under Natural Law there can be no masters or slaves. We own and are responsible for ourselves. This is where the word anarchy is derived, which literally means, “No Rulers”, NOT “No Rules” like many statist would have you believe to rationalize their own illogical beliefs.

Larken Rose does a great job dispelling the myth of one of the biggest and most dangerous religions in the world, Statism, the belief in government and/or authority. Once you see past the illusion of this religious cult, like all other dogmatic religious cults, the matrix beings to crumble. You begin to see that the problems facing this world have been caused by these false beliefs and we are all responsible for the state of this planet as we continue to allow these false beliefs to spread like a plague.

Until we can find the courage within ourselves to change, we will never rid ourselves of this superstition, not only government, but ANY religion or dogmatic belief system that isn’t in 100 percent accordance with Natural Law. If we are honest with ourselves and want to see positive change in the world, we need to first change ourselves. Start that positive change today by buying a copy of The Most Dangerous Superstition and once you are done, give a copy to everyone you know and share what you have learned.

“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
