How many of you realize that the paranoid, murderous rages of Charlie Manson are quite possibly identical to the paranoid, murderous rages of Adolph Hitler? Both were taking untold numbers of drugs during their lifetimes, from Pervitin (amphetamines) to Benzedrine to LSD and 20 to 30 other mind and thought-altering prescription and recreational drugs. Their ability to think had been compromised, yet no one looks at the smoking gun.... DRUGS and resulting brain damage.

The nine serial killers detailed in Serial Murder Syndrome, Volume II, all seem to have one thing in common: Left Temporal Lobe head injury and brain damage caused by drug toxicity.

Ed Gein - Beaten about the head by his drunk father. Richard Speck - So much head injury his head “looked like a mountain range.” The California Vampire - Burned his brain out on drugs during the sixties. Suffered from undiagnosed Cotard Syndrome. John Wayne Gacy - Fell out of a building onto his head at 18.

...and more.

Try to consider certain fundamentalist religions as brain malfunctions, rather than “revealed forms of faith” without becoming enraged.

Author Victor Godot has gone into even more critical detail in this expanded volume.

Do you really want to know what causes serial murder?

Let’s Get Civil <BR>Healing Our Fractured Body Politic <BR>By: Patrick Conroy

Let’s Get Civil enables We the People to conduct productive arguments that lead to good laws and public policies. To do that we must improve both how we think and what we think. That requires full intellectual development. Full intellectual development consists of both cognitive development, the ability to reason; and moral development, the ability to reason morally.

We all become capable of mature reason and mature moral reason around the time students graduate from high school. But too many of us do not develop as we can. Let’s Get Civil shows us how to fix that in families, schools, and society. It also explores the forces that work to undermine our full development, exposes them, and rejects them.

We fix moral philosophy, which has virtually ceased to exist in the U.S., and we reunite moral philosophy with the social sciences. That marriage makes both better. The social sciences are good at studying what is in society, but they also need to know what should be in society. And only moral philosophy has the tools to answer that question. By working together, moral philosophy and the social sciences become more effective and efficient and moral.

Finally, we use the intellectual tools we have developed to build a mature understanding of Economic Justice, Education Justice, Women’s Health Justice, and Social Justice. That understanding allows all of us, all of We the People, to conduct civil, grown up arguments about the laws and public policies we need to become all that our Founding Fathers hoped for us.

In any discipline, you can’t find truth without understanding its tools. Philosophy is no different, yet many non-philosophers try to do philosophy without that understanding, or even knowing that there are philosophical tools.

“The Tools of Philosophy” shows all of the major mechanisms for doing philosophy, and how they are related to each other, and in some cases how some are a consequence of others. We also find reason to believe that all of the major tools of philosophy have one source, one major device, and from that device all of the rest follow.

If we want to know how philosophy is done, how we might actually explore philosophical ideas, and how confident we should be in the answers we get, we need to understand how the tools of philosophy, i.e., the devices, principles, methods, concepts and systems at the foundation of the practice, can be used.

The issues that attract us to philosophy are often specific to us. We can’t just read what other philosophers have said and try to “adopt” or “reject”. Sometimes we need to address our personal concerns uniquely. It might not be clear to those not in philosophy that there are effective ways of addressing those concerns, but there are. They can be made explicit. This is the avenue that “Tools of Philosophy” explores.

You can learn to articulate and address something meaningful to you that you may have assumed was out of your reach. Becoming clear on your concern is getting halfway there. Imagine a book that helps with that.

And on your journey, you may just learn how to do a little philosophy.

Imagine you’re a physician during the late 1700’s. A mysterious “woman in a shroud” has demanded her daughters place her in a coffin, and treat her as if she were dead. Her daughters follow the strange woman’s request, and proceed to “mourn” her.

One hundred years later, a woman known only as “Mademoiselle X” presents a similar array of bizarre symptoms. She claims to have “no brain, no nerves, no chest, no stomach and no intestines.” She also asserts to be “eternal,” arguing that she “would live forever,” and contends “there is no need for her to eat,” whereupon she soon dies of starvation.

Another hundred years go by, and a man known as “The California Vampire” claims similar symptoms - his stomach is “turned around and backwards. His heart frequently stops beating, and he needs human blood to survive.”

What do these three people have to do with Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson and “Family,” singer Karen Carpenter, Adam Lanza, the “Sandy Hook Killer,” David Katz, the “Jacksonville Shooter” and others?

Author Victor Godot weaves a horrifyingly true tale of drugs, brain damage and mortal danger, in this, the third volume of his Trilogy, The Nazis are Back, and They are US.

Serial Murder, <u>Solved!!!</u> <BR>God has Left the Building - Volume Two <BR>By: Victor Godot

Once again, Victor Godot, America’s self-appointed, 21st century Machiavelli, breaks all the rules in his new book, “Serial Murder, Solved!!!” First, he masterfully unravels the long-infamous, 1922, “Hall-Mills Murder Case” of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Then, (if that weren’t enough) comes back swinging with a far different way of looking at the classic, “Lizzie Borden Murders.” Still not satisfied, Godot then takes his radical theories on criminal behavior to the next level, coldly explaining all of the currently-ignored, brain-compromised disorders that can create both the phenomenon of Serial Murder and its unlikely precursor, “The Seemingly-Senseless Crime.”

You’d better hope that your attorney knows what’s in this book, especially if you’ve been “falsely accused.”

Haunted Beauty: Aesthetics and Mindfulness in the Traditional Ghost Story <BR>By: Tim Weldon

Edition: Paperback, 105 Pages
Publication Date: May 9, 2015
Wonderfully entertaining and well-researched, Haunted Beauty invites the reader to enjoy and ponder the allure of a running theme in Western literature: the existence of ghosts. Weldon’s delightful coverage of aesthetics and apparitions give the book its charm and subtle attraction. Haunted Beauty is a rare gem for those interested in beauty and the beyond in letters...

Integrating philosophy and popular culture, Professor Weldon brings a lively and unique perspective to bear on some important reasons why our reaction to what “goes bump in the night” has evolved from a serious alert to danger into a popular and happy thrill.

Dr. Scott W. Marshall, Professor of Communication & Media Arts, University of St. Francis, IL.

With erudite and expansive treatment, Weldon engages key examples of ghost stories from the Western literary canon. His analysis explores how the universal qualities of aesthetics and humanity’s self-awareness allow the supernatural to retain its significant place in literature and everyday life. This book makes for a great companion for courses in the horror genre, or a delightful and engaging read for the avid horror fan.
