Description
"At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education, and communication our ancestors couldn't even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. What's going on? ... Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics ... he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the Internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom--and even of hope itself"--Adapted from publisher description.
Description
We are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history... but the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. Many of us have an overriding feeling of hopelessness. Manson dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven't considered before. -- adapted from back cover
