I was a Fool

I was a fool.

I was deluded into believing that I could publish my own book and make it into a bestseller.

I was wrong.

When personal computers came into being in the early 1980s, many of us, including myself, were introduced to the world of self-publishing.

It was going to be a bold new world.

No longer would we be have to rely on a publisher in New York New York City to sell our books.

We could do it ourselves.

The personal computer was going to open up that new world.

We were wrong.

I was wrong.

Here’s the reality. You can be the second coming of F Scott Fitzgerald, and you can write a beautiful book that’s beautifully packaged, and if you publish that book yourself and try to sell it, you are going to be holding your breath for a long time to make substantial sales.

You might get 1000 people max to read that book.

I’m not saying it’s not possible to do a best seller on your own; it certainly is possible; and it has been done. But your odds of doing so are equivalent to winning the lottery.

Why is that?

Because printing a book is easy; selling a book takes great effort, money, and time.

If you want to publish a best seller in your lifetime, you are better off going to the major publishing houses.

Who are the major publishing houses?

Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, Simon and Schuster are a few of the major publishing houses.

They belong to King Louis, and it is King Louis who controls people’s minds.

Now, of course, we don’t have a King Louis in the United States as we would know King Louis.

What we have is Harvard University and the Ivy League cabal who are firmly in charge of the United States. They are our King Louis, and they control the major publishing houses, television, radio, internet, newspapers and magazines.

Selling a book isn’t easy. It isn’t even easy for the major publishing houses.

It takes a lot of effort to sell a book and make it into a best seller.

For you to do this on your own is an extraordinary uphill climb. It is so because you do not control the vast media that is required in order to position your book in people’s minds.

King Louis has that power, But even for King Louis the task is daunting.

Years ago, Noam Chomsky would speak about the opinion makers in our society. I didn’t fully comprehend the gravity of what he was talking about until the COVID-19 crisis came about.

When Noam Chomsky referred to opinion makers, I viewed this phrase more innocently. I was of the opinion that these elites were simply offering an opinion, and that their opinion carried no more weight than your opinion, or my opinion.


I now think a better term for opinion maker is mind controller. The elites aren’t so much opinion makers as they are mind controllers.

Let me explain.

I as a pediatrician had quite definite opinions on COVID-19. I was firm, and I am firm, in my belief that Dr. Fauci and the elites were lying to you about COVID-19.

So what?

I felt confident that if I only stated my opinion, that people would listen to reason and go along with what I said.

I can assure you that there was a doctor like me in every community stating the same thing that I was stating.

Some of these doctors were able to make it onto national television when the pandemic was in full force.

Where did it get us?


In many respects, we were like the self-publishing author trying to make a best seller out of our self-published book.

We were engaging in a futile exercise.

Our efforts were futile because we are not King Louis. We do not control the media. We do not control the breadth of the media.

We were destined to fail.

Even the elites have had a difficult time selling Dr. Fauci’s message to the American public, but they have been more successful than we the rebels who oppose Dr. Fauci.

The elites have been more successful in selling Dr. Fauci‘s message for the same reason that they are more successful in selling books and best sellers.

They control the minds of people.

How do they do it?

They do it by hitting your mind relentlessly from all directions. They can attack your mind from newspapers, television, radio, movies, music, sports talk, Internet, and billboards.

They have the ability to make 2+2 = 5 a fait accompli in your mind.

That’s right! They can make you believe that 2+2 = 5.

That is the power of King Louis.

That is the power of Harvard University.

And that is why I was a fool.
