I write the kind of books I like to read, and The Antaeus Factor is no exception. When I started to research this book, I was aware of the danger our country faces from those who are determined to do damage. Some of this danger comes from hostile regimes around the world, but there is a surprising amount of it that comes from the lone predator with real or imagined grievances against those who have a different religion or ideology. The really surprising discovery was the shocking amount of ill will from people who direct their hate toward some victim for no perceptible reason. They are all around us in society, from the teen who feels rage because he was turned down for a date and strikes back on a social network, to the neighbor who is determined to get even with someone who has slighted or scorned him or her in some manner. There is road rage, bullying on a school campus, to unbelievable acts of outrage.
