complete control of the citizens, elected officials, and the courts?" "That's right," he stated. Disillusioned and infuriated, I went back to the drawing board to figure out how we were going to get out of this mess. The first thing that became apparent was that we had better begin generating another source of income, that is, another product line very quickly. We did have another product we were supposed to launch at the beginning of January, but it had been delayed because of the bread trouble. I had been documenting material for over eight years to write a book about

486 Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About how to start a direct-market business. I didn't want to write the book until I was sure that my success was not due to luck or stumbling upon lucky situations or being in the right place at the right time. Too many "How to Succeed" successful authors write books before they actually know what was behind their success. I've seen more than one entrepreneur happen to stumble upon an incredibly powerful market, then go out and make all kinds of speeches and write books on how he made a lot of money. Then the market depletes, and the business collapses, and he soon finds he did not know everything there was to know about being successful in business. But because I had been involved in selling many different products through many different media, I felt that I had more than adequate knowledge to produce an adequate degree of success. I had been working on the book off and on ever since December, but had really devoted little time to it. We had an incredible situation now dealing with the crisis of our bread and putting out a major product, a well-illustrated, information- packed book on how to start your own business. The book was to be called 7 Steps to Freedom, or How to Escape the American Rat Race. The wheels were now turning rapidly in Washington to try to put us out of business. Research of more case histories showed that our situ- ation was not unprecedented. What was happening to us was a well- systematized plan and coordinated effort. ITT got off the hook because it had Washington influence. However, the case histories show that, in most cases, when small businesses that become viable and visible trespass into a lucrative market area of vested-interest corporations, they will be systematically put out of business. There is no regard for public welfare, national welfare or gaining compliance with the law. The whole system is meant to do one thing—put the company out of business permanently. Not all market areas, of course, fall into this situation. Some do to a larger degree than others. We were in one of the most tightly con- trolled and most vigorously controlled market areas—food and drugs. With the seizure laws and the passing of the Kefauver Amendments, this really made it possible for a handful of men to control the food and drug industry.
