What I've Been Reading

Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals by John Gray. I am kicking myself for not reading this book for almost a decade ago when it came. This is one of the best books, I have ever read in my life, period. A book that bought solace, spoke my mind and might shape it more in the remaining days.

Today the good life means making full use of science and technology - without succumbing to the illusion that they can make us free, reasonable, or even sane. It means seeking peace - without hoping for a world without war. It means cherishing freedom - in the knowledge that it is an interval between anarchy and tyranny.
