Yesterday, Via Skype, (well, Thursday; for I am two days late in posting the event) I was invited to attend a discussion of my book “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil On My Trail.” I said nothing. I merely listen in on the classroom’s discussion. I was aware “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil On My Trail,” was being used in Germany to teach in a modern concept what the rise of anarchy might look like. But I wasn’t aware it was being used in any classrooms in America. On college level not, high school level.
Once someone buy your book they can used it however they please, so I thought it was generous of her to invite me to listen in. I didn’t write it for this purpose but if it is being used to highlight the plight of others and make the lives of others better, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve.
It was a class of Women Studies that I observed. I wasn’t required to participate. The classroom of perhaps 200 or more students wasn’t aware I was watching. Only the professor knew I was observing.
The professor introduced another book called. “Single by Chance, Mothers by Choice written by Rosanna Hertz.” It talked about how so many professional women are foregoing marriage and skipping onto parenthood now that in most places the harsh stigma of single motherhood has been erased more women are pursuing it.
She said that she knows the stigma was attached to women as a method of control, not so much as to protect them from predatory males but to control every aspect of her life and make sure it evolves around the whines of the father of her children in much severely that she became his property to do with as he pleased. In some societies even unto the point of ordering her death.
Professors do not select books by ratings and reviews. They chose them by the contents pertaining the subjects they are teaching about.
