Have you ever read a book?

August 3, 2006


I have. I just finished Al Qadeda and What It Means to Be Modern, and I can’t stop talking about it / thinking about it. I love an argument like John Gray’s here. He skips the narrow debates; makes left and right look dumb with the largest ideas & damning patterns. A weird companion piece to Guns Germs and Steel which I’d read just prior, with A Short History of Mexico squeezed in between. All deal with atrocities and their components like we’re seeing in the news today. And – t o d a y – And today.
