Luckily for us, Joseph was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of GOD AND COUNTRY ….United We Stand! ….Divided We Fall!

OP: Tell us a little bit about GOD AND COUNTRY ….United We Stand! ….Divided We Fall! What is it about?

Joseph: The Bible is the Backbone of Freedom! When the phrases of the Bible are rearranged they reveal the answers to the Biblical mysteries and unlock the secret for why we have our freedom. …..The Bible and politics unite. These are the answers that our country has been searching for …..and these answers were given to us 2,000 years ago. Hidden within the Bible are many creatively written and cleverly placed phrases which specifically point to these times and when these extraordinary phrases are rearranged they clearly explain our current world and reveal the Bible’s biggest mysteries. They identify the Beast of the book of Revelation (the being commonly known as 666) and they lead to unlocking the secret to understanding how our freedom is earned. And more importantly the Biblical phrases warn us that our country and our freedoms will not last unless we do indeed become “One Nation under God and Indivisible”. Our country was founded upon the Bible, our laws are based on the Bible, and unfortunately we are currently throwing the Bible out the window. Our country has wandered away from its founding ideals as we have pushed aside, ignored and thrown out God’s laws without realizing that they are here to discipline us and keep us in control. Finding the answers to the Biblical mysteries leads to discovering how the Bible and politics must come together for a country of freedom to survive. Because if we can’t stand united …..we fall. …..Politics and the Bible must become partners in a free democracy. This book puts politics, freedom and religion into perspective for a nation which is falling apart.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Joseph: Hopefully all Americans will be interested in the the reason for why we have our freedom and in how politics and religion unite in a country of freedom. Using the rearranged phrases of the Bible the book begins with the basics and simply explains the complicated. It reveals the answers to the Biblical mysteries and those answers lead to discovering why we have our freedom. So all ages and all citizens should find these answers fascinating and important.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Joseph: Hopefully all Americans will be interested in the the reason for why we have our freedom and in how politics and religion unite in a country of freedom. Using the rearranged phrases of the Bible the book begins with the basics and simply explains the complicated. It reveals the answers to the Biblical mysteries and those answers lead to discovering why we have our freedom. So all ages and all citizens should find these answers fascinating and important.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Joseph: These are without a doubt the answers. They are unique and they have never before been made known. The answers are simple, down to earth and real.

OP: What is special about your book?

Joseph: It is with great hope that these answers will help our country. These are the answers which our country has been struggling to find and they come at a time when our country desperately needs them …..and the answers were actually written down 2,000 years ago, they were just waiting to be uncovered. These answers have never before been revealed and they are made known in a manner that has never before been accomplished.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Joseph: This book has taken 20 years to put the pieces of the puzzle together and to organize so that it would be simple and so that it would teach and be easy to understand. And if there is interest in this book then perhaps more findings can and will be published.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Joseph: The book is proudly printed by Outskirts Press and is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This book takes less than 2-1/2 hours to read and yet it reveals the answers to the Biblical mysteries, it describes why we have our freedom, and it solves many of our country’s political issues – so it is well worth taking a few hours in order to obtain these long sought after answers. And these are simple and down-to-earth answers you’ll never forget.

OP: Thanks for your time, Joseph! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

OP: Tell us a little bit about Handbook for True Democracy: How the Grassroots Can Create a Nation Of, By and For All the People Through the Evolution of Individual and Organizational Behavior. What is it about?

John: It’s about American political transformation from oligarchy to true democracy. True democracy is not just a set of laws and a government structure it’s a collective consciousness. The collective consciousness of true democracy arises out of human nature when called forth by group psychology and the social constructs and cultural artifacts of a nation. The appropriate collective consciousness for an effective democracy (a true democracy) is one that yields culture and process that manages human diversity in equitable ways. But group psychology and the social constructs of a nation can serve as countervailing forces to effective democracy as well. To the extent that such elements create consciousness focused on producing inequity and perpetuating the conflicts that arise out of human diversity, the public consciousness needed for true democracy is lost. Corporate oligarchy is the leading instigator of group psychology, social constructs and cultural artifacts that threaten democracy. Consequently, this book is about true democracy vs. corporate oligarchy. In the book I explore this ongoing struggle over power where the winner will control the foreseeable future of civilization. Power in its most naked form is control of energy-the energy that powers our cars, homes and militaries but more importantly the energy that we human beings represent. To control the energy that we humans represent one must control human consciousness. To control human conscious, one must control the four pillars of power-control of information, control of leadership, control of economics and control of organization. So, the question is who shall control these pillars of power for the foreseeable future-will it be corporate oligarchy or We The People? The answer to that question is found in the emerging evolution of human psychology and behavior. Human psychology and behavior will either evolve toward greater democracy or greater totalitarianism. This book is about how we the everyday man, woman and child can pursue the former. It is about how each one of us can contribute to creating a true democracy.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

John: The simplest way to explain why I wrote this book is to reference our current state of affairs as a nation. We The People are moving closer to a violent and deadly chasm. The chasm is over our worldviews. One position offers a psychological outlook that could be described as centered on an “I, Me, Mine” worldview. The opposing position strives to impose an “Us, We, Ours” worldview. True democracy brings balance to these divergent views because it is designed to manage human diversity in equitable ways. True democracy pursues this balance through prioritizing win-win propositions over zero-sum approaches. It achieves this balance through a specific style of leadership, structure and process as well as individual initiative. The United States is at a crossroads. It is paramount that the people become aware that there are alternative worldviews that offer balance to our thinking before our divisions completely destroy our republic.

OP: How did you get your book published?

John: I published it through Outskirts Press.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

John: Handbook for True Democracy will be of interest to anyone pursuing a greater understanding of the underlying reasons for the turmoil occurring in our nation, especially those who feel an obligation to do something constructive about it. This includes readers of social philosophy; individuals open to personal wellness and intrigued with practical ways to oppose corporate influence through actions compatible with their daily lives; leaders within civil society committed to equity, participation, and socially responsible organizations; and scholars and educators interested in the roles of evolutionary psychology and national culture in understanding the dilemmas of society and/or the role of the nonprofit sector in addressing these dilemmas.

OP: What is special about your book?

John: Encapsulated in the pages of this book are the great underlying questions (and potential answers) that we as a society are struggling with at this very moment-Trump and the death of democracy, socialism vs. capitalism, political divisions based on identity, our health and even the future of our economy. What is special is that this book relates these issues to humanity’s ongoing psychological evolution and then helps establish how that evolution could lead to a national culture that supports true democracy.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

John: Where Handbook for True Democracy differs is that it places themes championed in the books listed below squarely in the context of America’s political divide and then interweaves them into a comprehensive worldview pertinent to current efforts to achieve authentic democracy in the United States. Titles that explore subject matter that relate to Handbook for True Democracy include The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins; The Evolution of the Mind by Robert Townsend; Not by Genes Alone by Richerson and Boyd; The Age of Empathy by Franz De Waal; Personal and Planetary Wellness by Marilyn Cornelius; Nonprofit Management: A Social Justice Approach by Elaine P. Congress; and Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind by Geert Hofslede. Books and researchers on these subjects paved the way for much of the conceptual framework found in Handbook for True Democracy. Some of these books explore how organizations shape us, others explore how our wellness and grassroots organizations can shape the world we live in. Others explain how evolutionary processes shape the values, norms, and assumptions of humanity and therefore our society.

OP: Have you published any other books?

John: Yes. Organizational Culture for Successful Democracy: Participatory Nonprofits That Advance Their Missions, Build Political Community and Initiate the Evolution of Society, POCD Publishing (2013) – Examines how organizational culture in nonprofit organizations can establish highly efficient and effective democratic movements; Characteristics Associated with Not-for-Profits that Successfully Involve Clients in Shaping Their Programs, ProQuest (2009) – Examines performance management, internal and external community building, organizational ethics and entrepreneurship/innovation in the context of participatory organizational behavior and development in public service nonprofit organizations; Way to the River Source, COMPAS (1997) – A training handbook on diversity, community building and parent involvement in schools. Co-authored by Judith Katz.

OP: Do you plan to publish more?

John: It’s likely that I will.

OP: Thanks for your time, John! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
