I should point out that Sir Laurens titled that book ‘The Voice of the Thunder’ in anticipation of the arrival of the deafening truth about the human condition. For Sir Laurens van der Post to have been able to make such penetrating insights into mythology and the human situation he must clearly have been one of those rare individuals who was sufficiently sound to confront and think freely about the human condition, someone living outside Plato’s ‘cave’ of denial in the truthful world of the illuminating ‘sun’, one of those people traditionally termed a prophet.
The fact is that Sir Laurens van der Post’s writing is some of the clearest in recorded history, as his many quotes in this book attest.

Once adults were corrupted and alienated, their children’s pure, original, instinctive self or soul was going to be compromised, hurt, damaged and corrupted by the unsound, dishonest environment they were having to grow up in.
