Об этой электронной книге

How do you get away with the murder of 11 million people? The answer is simple—and disturbing. You lie to them. Learn how you can become an informed, passionate citizen who demands honesty and integrity from your leaders.

In this nonpartisan New York Times bestselling book, Andy Andrews emphasizes that seeking and discerning the truth is of critical importance, and that believing lies is the most dangerous thing you can do. You’ll be challenged to become a more careful student of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events that illuminate choices our world faces now.

By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over eleven million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other.

This short, thought-provoking book poses questions like:

  • What happens to a society in which truth is absent?
  • How are we supposed to tell the difference between the “good guys" and the “bad guys”?
  • How does the answer to this question affect our country, families, faith, and values?
  • Does it matter that millions of ordinary citizens aren't participating in the decisions that shape the future of our country? 
  • Which is more dangerous: politicians with ill intent, or the too-trusting population that allows such people to lead them?

This is a wake-up call: we must become informed, passionate citizens or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. We can no longer measure a leader’s worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth.

    This is a strange title, but an excellent book. It’s a short read, but helpful for those who understand “normalcy bias.” Normalcy bias is the principle that people move deeper into danger, because they do not realize how current events are becoming worse and worse. It happened in the 1930s, when the Jews were mentally manipulated by Hitler’s regime to think “it won’t get any worse” and the government said, “We’re doing this for your protection.” The “new normal” was merely another step to the destruction of the Jews by means of the death camps. Some Jews fled Germany and Holland in the 30s, but those who did not were sent to camps. The Normalcy Bias is thinking, “Things can’t get any worse from this state of being.” Andy Andrews shows how Germany killed over 11 million people – Lie to them. It has happened in other regimes as it did in Germany. People believe the government. They believe because they want it to be true. They believe to their death. People are sheep and will listen to the voice that tells them what they want to hear. What should the United States learn from this? Ask the question, “What is the truth?” Truth is being removed from the United States everyday and yet we are still trusting the government. Andrews does not write this, but the reason is because the truth – Jesus Christ – is forgotten in our world. As He is removed from society, the sheeple (sheep – people) will believe what they want to hear. Will we realize it before it’s too late?

    I bought this book sight-unseen over the Internet; I am somewhat disappointed. It isn't the quality of the writing or the subject matter, as I knew what it was about before purchasing it. What I did know of it, heard during an interview was the entirety of the book! The book is so bare, it would even be too short for a cover story in a magazine. Basically, Mr. Andrews has written an elaborate question. I don't fault him for not answering it as he has clearly stated that is not the intention of this book, but his "background" he used to provide reasoning for his thought provoking query is well known history; he simply adds a bit of specifics to the general.He does craft a well thought-out question, posits it logically and has a solid argument for the basis of the question. The most useful part of the book is piquing my interest in another of his books he references in 11 Million People.

For many years I have been asked to speak to political gatherings of one type or another. And for many years I have consistently declined. Because the books I write are generally regarded as commonsense literature—novels that illustrate life’s principles—I suppose many politicians have simply assumed that I was on their side. However, I am not an "us or
