This 140 page study is comprised of inherently fascinating commentaries on a wide variety of topics ranging from Origins of the One Percent: The Bronze Age; Blown Away: Guns and 'Random' Mass Shootings; A Word on Civilization and Collapse; and What Does It Mean to Be Healthy?. These and other iconoclastic essays as informed and informative as they are thoughtful and thought-provoking. "Why Hope?: The Stand Against Civilization" is very highly recommended for personal reading lists, as well as community and academic library Social Issues collections. It should be noted that "Why Hope?: The Stand Against Civilization" is also available in a Kindle edition ($8.99).
