"Look, as sentient meat, however illusory our identities are, we craft those identities by making value judgments. Everybody judges, all the time. Now, you got a problem with that, you’re living wrong."
I wanted something meaty, above pop psych, to dig into. This book seems to mostly support the moral and even psychological right to retributive justice (at the societal, not necessarily personal, level), although in reading snippets of his later work, it seems his stance has mellowed to higher levels of forgiveness.
I'm not sure yet how i will ultimately feel about this book, but so far it's interesting...
Hope to hear your opinions on the book! Will have to seek out your story too!
Can't decide which one is more appealing...no, I know
This definitely appeals to my black humor... or should it be gallows humor?... coping mechanism, and reminds me of when I was the star of my own little horror movie!
i've been not active on SI for a while, saw that you had read this book, or much of it. did it help you at all in some way? Would love to know. I wound up dabbling in other stuff and have been all over the map. Too bad about my little book club idea here, my intention was good but my follow through, not so good! Hope you're doing okay!
