This review is from: The Open Society and Its Enemies, Vol. 2: Hegel and Marx (Routledge Classics) (Paperback)
probably the only full proof antidote to philosophies that lead to totalitarian regimes and to fundamentalism. In addition it is well written and sometimes very funny. I advise my children to read the Bible, I try to force feed them this book.
It's often forgotten conclusion: the litmus test of an open society is not "how we should find the best ruler?" but "how can we be sure we can get rid of a bad ruler without having to resort to violence?".
