"Now, Thanks to Goodman's Setting the Family Free, the Animals are Eating Us"

As seen on TV! 

Mark Mirabello is a Professor of History at Shawnee State University, where some scenes from Setting the Family Free take place. His books include the Handbook for Rebels and Outlaws, A Traveler's Guide to the Afterlife, The Cannibal Within, and The Odin Brotherhood. 

Here is his analysis after reading Setting the Family Free.

Inspired by true events, and set in the ‘Badlands’ of Southern Ohio, Eric D. Goodman’s latest novel describes the consequences of ‘legal’ persecution: what happens when a man who served his country in war is destroyed by tax charges and Byzantine laws.

“Usually, such men die quietly. But some—like Joseph Stack, who crashed his plane into an Internal Revenue Service Building in 2010, or Sammy Johnson, the outlaw of Goodman’s book, who released dangerous predators by cutting open their cages in his private zoo—lash out one last time. They choose the ‘Samson Option.’ They kill themselves and take others with them.

“Every year, humans kill 50 billion animals for meat. Now, thanks to Goodman’s Setting the Family Free, the animals are eating us . . .”
