Post Re: What are you reading these days?
I have been reading Erich Fromm: ‘The Art of Loving’ It had me from the opening line: ‘Is love an art? Then it requires knowledge and effort,or is love a pleasant sensation,...’

For years I was drifting into misanthropy and it began to scare me. Disdain for people is an easy road to travel ‘all against all’ it’s horrible, but it seems this is the road too many would like to travel. It’s not for me. Hobbesian therapeutics seems to be the proscription of the day. I have recognized it in myself but moreover I see it in people everywhere.

We are not in a good place. I know that Pinker tells us that we are doing really well, Haidt tells us we have these impulses...

Phone call...later...
