"An absorbing read, a trip into the unknown. As a society we have been kept at bay, wittingly and unwittingly, about some of the tough questions of our society, planet, universe, and perhaps government--at our own peril! Quinn's tour de force re-opens some niggling wounds and tears at the seams of our quest here on this planet wev'e called home." As the Lost Generation needed "The Sun Also Rises" and "For Whom the Bell Tolls" Generation X would do well to read ISMAEL."

I am a third year Human Justice student, and we spend a lot of time discussing what is wrong in the world. The books by Mr. Quinn are often on the suggested reading list, but being a bogged down college student, I never made time to read them. Finally, a "radical" friend of mine lent me his copies, and I read them to humor him. He promised me it would change my life, and it certainly did! It amazes me, and disturbs me, that the answers to the questions we continue to ask in my college (and around the world) are right in front of us, yet no one seems to realize that. I am amazed at how much my friends and collegues resist the ideas though. I suppose it is as Mr. Quinn stated, that they are so strongly influenced by Mother Culture that they can not listen to new ideas. I am so glad I found this web site though. Finally, I found people who think like me. No longer am I alone...

Occasionally a builder or artist will create something about which they are especially proud...becuase of the extra time and energy put into that work, or because of the potential impact that work may have. Just launched is a new part of the Ishmael/Bnetwork that is just such a work for me.

The Ishmael Community comes in answer to questions like, "How do I find others with this new understanding of the problems, and new perspective on the solutions?" I have created this venue for you. Please use it to locate others and to allow others to locate you. Check it out and start participating!

Alan, your friendly, neighborhood webmaster, and oh, yes, B.

I just left B's guestbook. I am not sure how long it will take for this transformation that has started in me, to complete itself. But I am finally confident that this IS the right direction for me. Again, I thank you Mr. Quinn, for sharing these thoughts with the world. I learned, and am still learning, from Ishmael, more than I even realize at this time. I shall endeavor to encourage the "Leavers" that I know to visit these places, in hopes that they hear some things that I have heard. Pupil seeks classmates. Sincerely, Al Kolling

I REALLY don't see how anyone, (myself included), can go on waking up everyday and buy a plastic bottle of orange juice, go to work at a restaurant that wraps the burger that was wrapped when it was recieved... You KNOW what I mean! I CARE! No, I really do but to see my everyday routine, you wouldn't guess. All my friends are the same, we have no solution but to sit and wait. For What? It seems change is only talk while cloning, concrete jungles, killing rainforest (and the tribes who are the only link to our true earthly culture), is not just talk but unstoppable dragons that swollow, with an insatiable appetite, everything that is good. Everytime I have a spiritual experience it is quickly cheapened somehow and sold out.I can only sit back and have faith, hope, and pray in my own way for salvation. sorry I can't get across what I really mean to say.

To me, the point is not so much what we have learned from reading the book Ishmael, rather it is what we might accomplish by viewing the world through his consciousness.

lots of stimulating ideas. Wish there would be an annotated version with references of ehistorical (and other) background material of the issues discussed in the book.
