From the pulpit to the bedroom, trigger words and phrases dictated every choice Rags Walker made for forty-five years.
As a former elder and minister of thirty years with the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, aka Jehovah's Witnesses, the absence of major literary work addressing the mind control techniques is: First, a great disappointment to millions world wide who have experienced the Watchtower lifestyle, and second, a missed opportunity for an elite publishing house to capitalize on a "gift that keeps on giving." This led to my writing "THE DREAM PUSHERS: Captivated by a System of Deceit" a 106,000 word memoir. The facts and events are character driven with plots and dialogues. They go beyond Diane Wilson's memoir, "AWAKENING OF A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS: Escape from the Watchtower Society" still in print, Ray Franz's "CRISIS OF CONSCIENCE" which is in its fifth edition after twenty 20 years, and Kyria Abrahams newest Watchtower expose I’M PERFECT, YOU’RE DOOMED: Tales of a Jehovah's Witness Upbringing.
"THE DREAM PUSHERS: Captivated by a System of Deceit" begins in a small Mississippi town in 1955 where Rags Walker is indoctrinated into a social-religious mind set at the age of ten. It explores a love story between a young couple who become staunch believers, and mesmerized by a matrix of dreams and promises to a point they offer their son as a sacrifice to the God of the Old Testament--Jehovah. Their strict home-life drives their youngest daughter into a libertine lifestyle. After Rags resigned his minister's position, he discovers a contradiction between "the Society's" core belief and a history book's quote from the "Babylonian Cuneiform Tablets." If the scholarly work is accurate--then the entire dream is false. Rags scrambles to re-enforce the regime's doctrine and his sanity, but with the click of the mouse, the promise disappears, through the words of "Josephus' The Antiquities of the Jews." His dream world explodes into a hellish nightmare--an Orwellian "Animal Farm," and to top it off, his wife is diagnosed with a rare blood disorder. His stratagem to save her fails--she dies--leaving him with his final choice. Should he remain a slave in the matrix of dreams, or break free and expose it for what it is--a billion dollar corporation hidden behind a system of mind manipulation, ever-changing doctrines, "end of time" prophecies, and deceit.
