The Economist a world renowned news magazine has assembled a helpful little book for us as a uick reference guide It even includes some close to but not real isms like schismIt s sorta like a Dictionary but different It s a interesting read that includes many fascinating facts you won t find in a dictionary It often had me muttering to myself Who wudda thought For example in flipping from Taoism and a great wu wei uote by Lao Tzu to pacifism I discovered that Leo Tolstoy the renowned Russian author was a Christian pacifist not passivist In popularizing Jesus Third Way Mr Tolstoy advocated creative non resistance in the face of violence as the only way to truly follow Jesus in his The Kingdom of God Is Within You And it was that book that inspired Mr Gandhi to use non resistance at the state level to totally free India from colonialismMahatma Gandhi wrote that The Kingdom of God Is Within You overwhelmed and left an abiding impression on him listing it as one of three modern works most influential on his life and philosophy So now I m downloading it from Overdrive as wellLikewise after reading about Pan Africanism and checking how the infamous Muammar uaddafi got to be leader of The African Union I was surprised to learn that he was a great and long term friend of Nelson Mandela Their friendship enabled the South African leader to broker the Lockerbie Deal between Libya and Britain about which Mr Mandela wrote in 1999 talking to one another and searching for peaceful solutions remains the surest way to resolve differences and advance peace and progress in the worldAll that and much I learned from reading The Economist s Book of IsmsEnjoyGaryFPatton2013 09 24

    Very interesting read Tongue in cheek at times downright funny at others see Bushism Entertaining and informative but approach it as relaxed reading rather than scholarly guidance
