A brief preface states the purpose. Chapter 1 deals with the passion of Christ and its justification. Chapter 2 deals with perseverance in a corrupt world, adhering to the straight and narrow road. Chapter 3 deals with harmony and anger in three parables. The first parable deals with a scientist using his skill to harmonize man with nature. The second parable deals with an English scientist harmonizing his life with woman. The third parable deals with original sin and how to harmonize man to God and removing the curse of that sin. Chapter 4 deals with the savagery of man and how to work around it to the good of civilization. Chapter 5 covers the war of the sexes again, suggesting that seeking a wise mate is the best method of marital bliss rather than beauty, wealth, social status and the more mundane things. Chapter 6 deals with ways & means of effecting success in strife and war in three parables. The first shows that the best way is the easiest way, but that the easiest apparent way is not always the easiest actual way. The remaining two parables deal with the careers of Patton & Montgomery in WWII, and Grant & McClellan in the American Civil War on the ultimate purpose of war and effecting that purpose.

About the Author
I write for my health and the health of the world. Often the cure rivals the disease in grief and aches. My writing career started at twelve when I attempted to write a sequel to Huckleberry Finn but never finished it. My writings have included poetry, plays, a novel, non-fiction and writing newsletters for here and there. Recently, I am dabbling into short stories. Apart from newsletters, nothing has been published in print. I bought an audio recording of one of my poems but threw it away in disgust due to an inappropriate reading by the narrator. 'Contra Pantheism...' was my first eBook. About a hundred eBooks have been published since including some books of verse, and my essays collected into five volumes, and one volume of collected poems. A few other types of literature are on my list of published works. My essays deal with fundamental questions of philosophy as well as natural philosophy (science.) On the whole, my works are as far above the writings of Plato and Aristotle as the material power of the United States is over that of Ancient Greece. I once asked myself if I had ever written anything memorable, but couldn't remember exactly what I had written. I started to check my manuscripts but stopped as it seemed the answer to the question was obvious. Gore Vidal mentioned in one of his memoirs that writers tend to forget what they write and are a bad source to ask about their works. Gore knew a lot of writers. I have not and may have been a bit hard on myself. Apart from self-improvement and maybe making a few bucks, my main goal is to bring about a golden age for mankind. Being a man, this sounds appealing. It is pointless to desist and all small measures are worth the effort. Albert Camus thought suicide the only serious philosophical question. He was a fool and died young. Suicide is a waste of time. The most important functional question is: How do I get what I want? The one question that trumps this is the ultimate question of intent: What should I want? As Goethe pointed out: Be careful what you wish for in your youth, you might get it in middle age.
