Thanks for the engrossing read. I am not a fast reader at the best of times and I do like an engaging turn of phrase (your book had many) and often I'll go back and replay one several times in my head and enjoy the way if sounds and the inferences it conveys.
|Not a fast reader ... Ian with Paula Allen offers the book, Sailing to Purgatory, a considerable thumbs up.|
The final part is, of course, harrowing and years ago it would have been hard for me to believe in such travesties.
But for decades now I have read considerably more broadly than the mainstream media to understand what makes the world tick.
I have come to understand that the system in western countries is a long, long way from wholesome. Besides, you would surely know better than most that the once honourable profession of investigative journalism is now all but absent from the MSM (mainstream media).
|I hope that you are able to draw even more from your rich and varied experiences for your writings to come.|
It's only present in braver and especially talented people and small organisations valiant, intellectual and assiduous enough to truly research and report real facts and who have the ability to rise above commonplace cognitive dissonance and pursue reality as opposed to regurgitated official narratives.
The justice system, it appears, is no less rigged. Even so I was surprised that your sound legal counsel was unable to prevail against a prosecution so flimsy and so profoundly ridiculous - submarines and helicopters for God's sake!
I hope the book and others you may write afford you the measure of comfort you deserve and also that you are able to find an ally well enough connected and tenacious and brave enough to seek and procure justice, however delayed it might have been.
I know it is notoriously difficult to have such cases revisited because presumably in their own misguided and collective minds, the gears of government and its various appendages can never be seen as wrong.
Hopefully, life has returned to some semblance of normality for you and I hope that you are able to draw even more from your rich and varied experiences for your writings to come. - Ian Allan
