  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 257)...

    What did you hope to accomplish with ISHMAEL and your other books? And do
    you think you’ve accomplished it?

    ...and the response:

    I hoped to overturn a lie--a lie as important as the ones Copernicus and
    Darwin overturned. The lie being: “The people of our culture are what humanity was MEANT to become.” I haven’t succeeded yet (except with perhaps a few hundred thousand people), but I’m still working on it--and ncouraging THEM to work on it!
