… why not go whole hog?

Jared Diamond has a new book. Malcolm Gladwell has a new article. Some correlation exists between these two joyous events.

OMG! Jared Diamond book! Why was I not told of this earlier??

In other books-of-immense-scope news, I’m reading “The Unconquerable World” by Jonathan Schell right now, and it’s rocking my world.

Wait! Wait! Gladwell has a new book coming out soon too!!! A mighty confluence, indeed.

From Gladwell’s article, loosely quoting Diamond:

“[T]oo often, we… assume that biological survival is contingent on the strength of our civilizational values… The fact is, though, that we can be law-abiding and peace-loving and tolerant and inventive and committed to freedom and true to our own values and still behave in ways that are biologically suicidal.”

Wow.

The snarkmatrix awaits you
