  •  OT, book "Global Insanity" (4+ / 0-)

    1. Question: Is there a young adult version? Any recommendations for young adult substitute for this  book?

    2. Not exactly 'insanity' in that the human brain evolved to deal with immediate threats, not with long range threats or long range planning.

      from the book jacket:

      Coffman and Mikulecky take on the pillars of Enlightenment science—determinism, conservation and the continuum—and leave them in rubble. They see the scientific wisdom of the 20th Century departing ever further from reality, casting society into a breach of deep cognitive dissonance, a.k.a., insanity!

      An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.

        A little late to the party. Interested in your book, and yeah, the title is appropriate, shorter and less off-putting than something like:

         "Global Insanity: Do humans have a death wish or are they just complete idiots"

        What about my Daughter's future?
