Paradigm Shift Reflects Essential Turning Point in the Conscious Evolution of Mankind on Planet Earth

Prolific Author-Philosopher Notes that the Way Forward Embraces the Abundant Synergy of Man and Woman Balance.

Las Vegas, NV, USA — In his new treatise, author and philosopher Christopher Alan Anderson offers an educational writing that points to a different direction for our collective lives. In these turbulent times, with mankind and Planet Earth at a turning point, he asks, “What is the actual foundation we can base life upon?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! answers this question, presenting a paradigm shift into Man and Woman Balance, a system of understanding the universe in terms of the fundamental polarities of maleness and femaleness and the balance thereof.

In religious terms, Anderson clarifies, we might say, “If there is a ‘God the Father’ there must also be a ‘God the Mother,’ not a ‘God the Mother’ as a secondary existence to ‘God the Father’ but as an equal and opposite primary existence to ‘God the Father.'” In philosophical terms, “Only [sexual] opposites can unite to then again divide…creating the spiritual lineage of [procreant] love.” This essential balanced interdependence offers a rich and life-enhancing reality all human beings can live by.

In an era in which it is clear our past and current religious and political structures have failed us, Anderson notes that many are confused about which way to turn. He comments, “We are being offered a sexual progressivism through L, G, B, T, Q as well as an existential threat in Islamic radicalism. In the meantime, our own constitutional system of governance and Christian roots seem to comprise a history, so what is the way forward? How are we to move ahead without a foundation based on life itself?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! asserts that life is the only state of existence between male and female and that love is its one expression. The author further suggests that their every moment/touch is a spiritual resurrection/rebirth. In other words, procreation is not just physical in nature but spiritual as well. With this understanding, concludes Anderson, we may truly “love ye one another.”

He explains, “Love is a good place from which to begin the life endeavor, as Man and Woman Balance can only be an expression of love.” In short, “Man and woman can only love each other, now and forever,” so might not this living reality, both on an individual basis and within the world at large, be the actual foundation from which we can live together?

Anderson cautions, “This is not an easy book, but if you can capture and live its essence, your life will forevermore have purpose.”

About the Author: Christopher Alan Anderson received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman can together stand in their differences and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. When asked to describe their overall message, he responded, “Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now.”

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “American Prisons: A Critical Primer on Culture and Conversion to Islam” by SpearIt

American Prisons: A Critical Primer on Culture and Conversion to Islam, by SpearIt, takes a sober look at our prison system, the 700,000 inmates released annually and their communities.

Houston, TX, USA — SpearIt’s American Prisons: A Critical Primer on Culture and Conversion to Islam is a critical exploration of prisons in contemporary America. Paying special attention to race and Islam, the work draws on a range of data and sources, including interviews and written correspondence with current and ex-prisoners, documentary research, and congressional hearings on topics that include criminal justice and religion, culture, conversion, radicalization, and reform.

“The overarching message of my anthology, American Prisons: A Critical Primer on Culture and Conversion to Islam, is that problems in prison are not isolated from society, and unlike the Las Vegas slogan, what happens in prison doesn’t stay in prison. Prisons are not neatly cornered off from society, but rather, are partners in toxic relationships with the communities to which ex-prisoners return.”

SpearIt is an Associate Professor of Law at Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Texas Southern University. He has taught for the Prison University Project at California’s death-row facility, San Quentin State Prison, as well as taught Corrections Law at Saint Louis University School of Law, in addition to serving on the Advisory Board of the Prison Program–a program that offers courses to both inmates and staff. He is currently active in the American Bar Association’s Corrections Committee and its work to restore Pell Grant Funding for prisoners.

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “The Silver Mosaic, a Winston Churchill 1930s Thriller” by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin

The Silver Mosaic, a Winston Churchill 1930s Thriller, by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin continues their award-winning series with a new, action-packed story of conspiracy and intrigue concerning the Jewish-inspired, world-wide boycott of German exports after the Nazis take power in early 1933.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In March 1933, the weak German economy is in peril. Winston Churchill wants to push it over the cliff with a boycott of German exports and take with it the new Nazi government whose brown-shirted SA thugs are terrorizing Germany’s Jews.

Working with Cleveland’s Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver, present in Berlin the day Hitler took office, Churchill enlists the help of his goddaughter, Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary, and her fiancé, ex-US Army intelligence agent Bourke Cockran. Mattie sets out to discover and expose the Nazis’ secret plan to defeat the boycott while Silver and Churchill send Cockran to Prague to retrieve microfilm of confidential customer data stolen from German exporters by anti-Nazi German patriots. Using it, foreign competitors can undercut German exports with lower prices.

The Nazis fight back and enlist two unlikely allies: the new US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Jewish Authority in Palestine. FDR opposes the boycott because of the damage it will do to American investors if the Germany economy crashes. The Jewish Authority plans to sell out the boycott in exchange for the Nazis allowing German Jews to emigrate to Palestine with funds in excess of German currency controls. Nazi, Jewish and American MID agents then join forces to wage a deadly battle against Mattie and Çockran that takes them from New York to London, Paris, Berlin, Budapest, Prague, Copenhagen, and Stockholm.

Michael McMenamin is the author of the critically acclaimed Becoming Winston Churchill, The Untold Story of Young Winston and His American Mentor. His son Patrick McMenamin is an award-winning journalist who has produced stories for ABC News, Fox News and HuffPost. The first four novels in their 1930s era “Winston Churchill Thriller” series received a total of 14 literary awards. The Silver Mosaic is their fifth Winston Churchill Thriller and they are currently at work on their sixth, The Liebold Protocol.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Love in the Crisis Mode” by Ben Korgen

Love in the Crisis Mode, by Ben Korgen, is the fourth book in the five-part Sorghum series of quirky hero, Rudy Tripp.

Providence, RI, USA — Ben Korgen’s Love in the Crisis Mode is inspired by the people and events at University of Minnesota – Duluth where Korgen played college football. Korgen takes from school football the myths and foibles, facts and fictions, to weave a quirky tale of romance around his unlikely hero – Rudy.

“Great book I highly recommend you read this I thoroughly enjoyed it”

As seniors, Kara and Connie were excellent students who applied for admission to three prestigious universities and were rejected by all three. Their attempts to apply for late admission failed because acceptance depended on spring semester grades that fell badly because of Rudy’s discussion club expansion demands. As the finesse-loving Sorghum High head football coach, Rudy resigned in mid-season and was replaced by a “guts football” head coach using methods that made Don play like a robot, killing talent scout interest in offering him the scholarship he needed to go to college. Sorghum High Principal Horace Dowd, Kara’s very large and influential father, was convinced Rudy prevented his son-in-law from getting a scholarship by resigning in mid-season and venting his wrath in an incredibly violent act.

Ben Korgen has had a highly varied career. He served in the US Navy, earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Minnesota Duluth, earned a master’s degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, then coached high school football, earned a PhD in Oceanography at Oregon State University and had a long and rewarding career in Oceanography at the US Naval Oceanographic Office, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and Tulane University in New Orleans.
