A reasonable review, though not entirely sympathetic. Our reviewer concludes with:
“I’d say that means not that we have less need of intellectuals, but more need of better ones.”
I would add the following quote by Albert Jay Nock:
‘It is a primary instinct of human nature to satisfy one’s needs and desires with the least possible exertion; everyone tends by instinctive preference to use the political means rather than the economic means, if he can do so.
If you’ve read the book, please share your thoughts.
