Andrew Beckford, editor of Forces of Changing Traditions
The book, Forces of Changing Traditions, encircles the spiritual realm of this world and how our lives are being influenced by these spiritual forces that we are unable to see. They use the human elites to fulfill their aims.
The book tries to show that people do not have much freewill anymore because of a few elites who forces their system on every man, woman and child. In doing so, they attack the very fabric of our society, such as religion, race and class.
All three are manipulated with, technology, the RFID chip and the divide and rule culture. For most of the part, the book shows how children and teachers are totally divided by race, religion and class. Children subsequently leave schools with hate and being less educated, making them easier targets for control.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Forces Of Changing Traditions?
Andrew Beckford: The terrible experiences I encountered as a teacher in London, England. Dealing with racism, cultural shock and seeing how damaging it had been to both black and white students gave me all the ideas and reasons to write Forces Of Changing Traditions.
It was like living in hell and writing this book was actually my only escape.
JP: What sets Forces Of Changing Traditions apart from other novels in its genre?
AB: The book is just mad. It is all genres: conspiracy, political, controversial, love, biography, autobiography, just about everything really. Intentionally, it starts off like a biography and continues well into the book as if it were a biography to prepare and distract from what is to come.
Then the conspiracies, controversies and some offensive tales with the realities of life kicking in sums up the differences between this novel and others. Not many books are written with such sincerity and hard hitting realism.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that lead to Forces Of Changing Traditions getting out to the public?
AB: Determination. Not allowing anything or anyone to get in your way despite the negative talks you may get. Have a good agenda and purpose. The purpose of this book was to empower people. It was to share my pain that is common amongst so many other human beings and to come up with possible solutions.
It was and will never be about money. Success is in the mind. If I am happy, the measure of another man’s success becomes redundant.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Forces Of Changing Traditions?
AB: This book was actually written as an escape route for myself, so I wrote it for myself; therefore, what you read is basically as it happened. This made it easy writing, it was if I were writing a diary. The other images, themes, settings and moods reflected my true beliefs.
It took approximately five to six months to finish this book. It was written with deep emotions. Once I had put pen to paper, up to forty to fifty pages could be written in a day. This was however done during the holiday breaks from school.
JP: What’s next for Andrew Beckford?
AB: I would like to use Forces Of Changing Traditions as a medium through which seminars and talks can be held with large groups in the USA, England, Africa; everywhere really, in order to fight racism and the injustice human kind is faced with.
This I hope to materialise by July 2011. I am hoping to get a very effective person to organise these events for me. I have just completed my second manuscript, and it is in good hands at the moment. I will also be writing a second part to Forces Of Changing Traditions. Other than that, I will continue to teach those wonderful kids, making them brighter and better human beings, and I am winning.
