The author of this book is a self-professed Utilitarian, but I had to wade through pages of biased tripe until finding that out on page 341. He sympathises with the "inner city thug" and says that "you would have been him had you been born in the same circumstances." Very patronising to people who have risen above such circumstances! Also that the "hatred and revulsion that send people to jail and to the gallows...are without intellectual foundation." and that "the suffering inflicted on wrongdoers is just as sad as the suffering of everyone else." Try telling that to the parents of a child who has been raped and murdered. The author is either an ageing hippy or a middle-class Leftie who has had no life experience of all types of people. I personally find this kind of emotional socio-politics quite nauseating and unobjective but if you believe in trying to extrapolate brotherly love from what should be a scientific endeavour then you'll enjoy this book. Needless to say, my copy is going in the bin.
