  1. So you ve decided to start your own cult or mass movement Fantastic Just remember that it s not all fun and games there s a good deal of planning and work involved You d be well advised to read Eric Hoffer s The True Believer in full before you do anything, but here, as I understand them, are a few of his main points First of all, somewhat counter intuitively, the contents of your platform or doctrine are almost irrelevant Whatever you do, don t wrack your brain or search your soul for legitimat [...]


  2. 2 on my list of the ten most influential books in my life At this point mybest guess is that I read this around 1960 It was a clear and incisive look at the people who believe as a matter of faith and not as a matter of logic or fact What is amazing is that the author was a longshoreman who had no formal education beyond high school Reading his insights was my first understanding of the workings of the minds of irrational people The principles of mass irrationality apply to religion, politics a [...]




  3. Outstanding A concise and astute portrait of the personality type that is drawn to authoritarian institutions, whether political or religious Hoffer makes an excellent case that the mass movements the fascists, the communists, and the various brands of religious fundamentalists, that have caused so much death, suffering, and chaos throughout history in their attempts to impose their values and belief systems on others, have all depended on people of basically similar character to fill their rank [...]









  4. This book for me is like when you ve just met someone and you re talking to them and you find that you have so much in common, and you like them so much that you stutter in trying to say ten different things at once because you re so excited and then you just trip over your own foot and fall in the lake.




  5. The True Believer Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements by Eric Hoffer is a political philosophy classic from 1951 It has lost absolutely nothing to age In Walden Henry David Thoreau wrote, The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation This could easily be seen as Hoffer s starting point The true believer begins as a frustrated man driven by guilt, failure and or self disgust to bury his own identity in a cause oriented to some future goal It scarcely seems to matter whether the cause is a [...]









  6. It s rare that a book has the impact on me this one did, especially first read in mature adulthood a book that often made me wish to underline paragraph after paragraph It s a very short, simply written and accessible book the main text is only 168 pages The preface tells us it intends to examine active, revivalist phase of mass movements On the GoodReads review site it s on a notable atheist books list, which I consider absolutely bizarre The ideas in the book definitely cut both ways, and is i [...]




  7. Full disclosure, I don t know what to make of this book Eric Hoffer writes in a folksy knowing way about fanatics and their influence on mass movements The man lived through two world wars, held a variety of blue collar jobs, and read lots of books during the tumultuous years of the American 20th century While Hoffer s musings ring true, he writes in giant headlines that can neither be proven nor disproved He pulls quotes from the Bible, Mein Kampf, biographies, and sociology and philosophy text [...]
