Overview

From "There is no Corporate Crime" to "How to Kill a Million People," the essay titles alone in Mind Puppet suggest the range of ideas and the author's unconventional approach to many issues of the day. Here is the complete list…

1. Mind Puppet - How we get trapped by logic and words, and so do awful things.

2. American Dream or American Nightmare? - Do we buy ourselves ever greater stress and unhappiness when we chase dreams like this iconic one?

3. There is no Corporate Crime - Only people can commit crimes, so why not punish the actul perpetrators rather than innocent bystanders?

4. Anger in the Dream World - Are we living in a dream world where we bring anger alive with imagined reasons?

5. The End of Retirement? - What's the alternative to the idea that we should stop being productive at a certain age?

6. Piss on the Flag - All flags are regarded by the author with disdain.

7. The $7 Million Dollar Man - What is the correct price of a life saved?

8. Sand Castles and Property Rights - Why we naturally need to own things, and where we need to limit the ideology of property.

9. The Farcical War on Terror - Is it really about keeping people safe?

10. How to Kill a Million People - Or rather, how to change our thinking about altruism and self-interest, to avoid such death counts.

The author says our minds take us where we shouldn’t go, and it makes sense to cut the strings in order to stop being a mind-puppet--It's a recurring theme throughout the book.

Mind Puppet (22,800 words), part of the "At Your Own Risk Series" by Steve Gillman, is meant to suggest new ideas, to open minds, to occasionally entertain, and above all to encourage readers to think for themselves.
