As our world continues to change (and for the better, I believe), I often think about how fondly future generations will look back on people like Liam Scheff. The ones who spoke out about uncomfortable or taboo subjects, that most wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole, because they knew it was the right thing to do. One of the most interesting things to me, in these strange times, is how fascinating it will be to look back on the way the world used to be, and the means by which we changed it (more specifically, the people who did so). Once we’re past all of this, and we’ve created a world I truly believe is beyond most of our wildest dreams, how compelling will it be to go back and read things like Official Stories.
With Official Stories, Liam tackles many issues facing the world today, and separates himself from the crowd by being brave and knowledgable enough to do so. Topics like vaccines, 9/11, JFK, HIV/AIDS, and more, are taken head-on, and popular beliefs that have been spoon-fed to the masses are shattered. Liam’s brand of almost conversation-like writing makes the experience feel less like research, and more like hearing it straight from a (friendly) expert’s mouth, and on any one of the various subjects covered.
The world needs more Liam Scheffs, and this effort should undoubtedly be required reading in today’s schools (we can dream, right?). Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy, support those out there like Liam, and suggest it to those you think might be willing to take a less “official” history lesson.
