Counter-Arguments for a Culture in Need
"Official stories exist to protect officials." With the opening line as our guide, we're going to pry open the vault of "official-dom" and see what lies beneath. Drawing information from 10 years of investigative journalism, Liam invites you to join the hunt for the details that lie just beneath the surface of history.
In this heavily-researched but irreverent book, we'll look under the rocks and stones of our culture: From CIA and JFK, to 9/11 and Shakespeare; from Vaccination to HIV to Big Bang theory, Darwinism, Plate Tectonics and more. Think of it as a corrective textbook to all the tales we were taught in school.
We'll ask the questions: why do we believe what we do? Why do we accept some stories as true when the details so obviously contradict the headlines?
We're going to find out what's real, what's true, and what's just an "official story."
