    "How Should We Then Live?" is written by a Christian apologist but I think is relevant for everyone who wants to trace why the world is the way it is. I just started but I will try to summarize as best as I can and post links here for those who are interested.

    How Should We Then Live? Chapter 1: Ancient Rome

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    I will definitely check this out
    If EVER the phrase." those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it" was applicable it is 2020.
    Great and scary history.
    Thanks Mona

    iis, it is funny that this book was written in 1976 but his last chapter is about how mass media warps peoples' perception of reality. If only he lived to see Twitter and Facebook. Phew.

    Having all this time on my hands I understand where you’re coming from JF. I have experienced a number of “what the heck is this” stuff (should say junk) on NFLX.

    Bubba. There are echo chambers all over the place. I recognize where the West Mall falls. But, this is a very small compartment of discussion compared to the vast world of political discourse on the internet.
