'Blind Faith' book by Ben Elton (Comedian & Author) with David Frost. Ben Elton is wonderfully witty and talks about faith and reason.
  • George Orwell 1984 feeling about 'Blind Faith' (BF)
    • privacy has disappeared voluntarily in BF
    • privacy was lost through 'Big Brother'
  • We are giving our privacy away
    • everyone is on Facebook
  • Their is an obsession with Emoting.
  • Concept of Faith - respect for faith can overide respect for intellectual vigour.
  • Intellect is on the back foot - passions, faith and fealings are ascendant.

Young peoples No1 ambition is 'I want to be famous' (the book has a Law - everyone IS famous).
