From the cover: “Whereas the media spread ideas, it is the purpose of this book to disrupt them. We maintain that what we now call the climate of opinion is made up of a series of lies which are accepted without question. These beliefs are frequently called ‘common sense’. They exist in education, philosophy, sociology, politics, science and art. It is easy for us to deride foolish notions that have existed in previous eras; but we do not identify or consider our own so readily. Could truth itself not be an image projected through the lens of our minds, with no other reality than our imagination and concepts? Has truth any home but in our minds which seek it? Though many of us no longer believe in the existence of God, we persist in our belief in truth, perhaps as compensation or another word for the Divinity.”
