While I generally agree with the author's central premise, the solution to our increasing barbarity would seem still to elude us. Where do we go from here? Well, I suppose if Peter Hitchens is correct we know where we are going, I am still not sure how we might avoid it.
A useful polemic from the religious to stack up against those of the evangelical atheists.
This is an interesting book regardless of your outlook on life. If you believe every decision we make is based on rational decision, this book will challenge your outlook. A classic of its kind with insights on every kind of social science.
