Sweet Books Greggy! Do you have the Hardcover Fireside book "Heart Throbs"?
Populations suffer from a fear of change, for their conditioning assumes a static identity. Challenging ones belief system usually results in insult and aprehension. Being wrong is eroniously associated with failure, when in fact to be proven wrong should be celebrated, for it elevates us to a new level of understanding. There is no such thing as a smart Human being, for it is merely a matter of time before their ideas are updated, changed or eradicated. This tendency to hold on to a belief system, any belief system and sheltering it from new possibly transforming information, is nothing less than intellectual materialism. Dominant World views operate with the same social irrelevancy, they exist as barriers to social and individual growth. Major institutions exist as barriers to personal and social growth for each group perpetuates a closed world view.

That's certainly a sweet set of books that you don't see every day.
What kills me about this cover is that it took me 30+ years to realize the lettering in the background, "Pallisades Amusement Park", is the same park that used to advertise in DC books during the 1960s and early '70s.
Even as a kid, I wondered why a dinky amusement park in Fort Lee, NJ would pay to advertise in a national publication. I also remember their terrible commercials in the NY area when I was kid. Uggh.
