TWO WORLDS, The story of man and the major infulences of his life.

In 1966, Flick-Reedy Education Enterprises published a book titled "Two Worlds, The story of man and the major influences on his life, library of Congress catalog card number: 66-30067.

Two Worlds was first introduced as a twenty-four part film program and later published in book form. The purpose of which was "to promote individual moral responsibility through education." The foreword of this book starts out;

"It has been said that little people talk about people, average people talk about things and events, while really big people talk about ideas. The purpose of TWO WORLDS is to encourage and stimulate you to think and talk about ideas. We avoid telling people what they should do or should not do, or how they should think. Instead, we encourage study and discussion of the interrelationship of history, philosophy, social studies, economic and civics. (which is no longer taught in our schools today.) It is our opinion that individual freedom is important and desirable to every human being; that it is earnestly sought after by every human being. Therefore, it seems important that every human being determine for himself the source of individual freedom and reflect on the individual responsibilities which are prerequisites to this freedom." (emphasis added.)

In the next few weeks six segments of this publication will be posted here, starting with the first chapter titled "Human Progress."

This book is designed to give you more than just reading. It is designed to stimulate you to think, discuss, research, and reason about the ideas mentioned. The Authors have tried to avoid authoritarian statements, but rather have mentioned facts and ideas to form a base for further study. This discussion-research-reasoning method tends to help people guide themselves to truthful answers. This discussion-research-reasoning method tends to bring forth unselfish actions because the individual him/herself will have given birth to these truthful answers.
