George battles drug addiction and a dark past. He sees life though the eyes of a nihilist and makes satirical jokes about the mess of the world. Both his philosophy and his jokes instruct his opinion on topics like politicis, corruption, ancient alien theory, and pseudo-theologies held by conventional fundamentalists.
The Life of an Idiot urges people to face the ills of contemporary society in a creative way. Author Marc Olsen's familiarity with various philosophers allows fictional play with their personalities, injecting humor into this weighty tale.
Incased in George's story are psychedelic scenes that fascinate the imagination while addressing quintessential, mystical, and obscure theosophy. This is a must read for any intellectual fascinated by religion, the economy, government corruption, and the opiate epidemic.
