A Letter to a Hindu




Book 64 of 2015 is A Letter to a Hindu by Leo Tolstoy.

This isn't a book. It is 24 pages long and takes a few minutes to read but if it looks like a book and I paid money for the paperback then I'm counting it.

I am not religious but I do believe in compassion. Tolstoy was saying that there are ways to control the masses that they do not question, be it religion or science.

This enforces my view that critical thought is what gives us power. Power over ourselves, power over the ruling majority and power over our destiny.

4 words of not so common sense out of 5.

Should I read this?  Everyone should. So, yes.
What did I learn? Tolstoy writes streams of letters like I write emails on a rant.
