I've read another book and some articles by this Author and have found his writing good, readable and thought provoking. This one fell short for me. Not a bad book certainly, but a stretch at times. It's at times a book on the evils of living in the world today and at times a religious/scriptural book. I don't personally have an issue with the analogies but they didn't all connect for me. To me, it fell short in solutions. The solutions offered just didn't ring actionable to me. Interesting at times, rambling at times.

While not my first choice on the topic, one cannot know too much about evil. It is worthwhile reviewing many perspectives as one works to gain a working understanding of evil. This title addresses the manner in which evil infects the public square, the arena of politics. It is a good analysis of the ways evil grabs the reins of power and enslaves us. If more people understood these dynamics the world would be a better place.

I picked up this book following the atrocity in Newtown, CT. I thought considering its message might be more constructive than joining the chorus of calls to ban guns. Firearms have been with us a long time, but as far as I know events like Newtown have not. Therefore, something else might be at work.

Kupelian states the basic problem thusly: "Despite the human race's extraordinary capacity for invention and progress, we clearly have a millennia-old blind spot." Specifically, "we don't understand ourselves."

Given all that has previously been written on self-understanding, adding something new would seem to be a formidable task. However, he does a good job of zeroing in on the urgent points of concern in modern life: the tendency of every government (even the most enlightened) to develop a tyrannical attitude with regard to its populace, the recent phenomenon in which marital unions and secure families are becoming the exception rather than the norm, the effect of terrorism on the human psyche, the esteem so many of us have for celebrities (and the damage that does), our excessive reliance on psychiatric drugs as a response to problems that may be "more mental-emotional or even spiritual in origin" rather than biochemical imbalances, the attraction of New Age religions and "feel-good" philosophies, and the emergence of militant atheism.

From there, he goes back over some of the same ground in more detail, showing for example how our culture weakens itself by consistently portraying men as "fools--unless of course they're gay."

Some will shrug this off as right-wing polemics, but Kupelian strives to make a case that stands up to criticism (acknowledging for example that some people are indeed helped by psychiatric drugs).

The latter half takes a somewhat more personal approach. He examines the mechanism of hate--the need people have for a scapegoat ("to avoid taking responsibility" for our own failings) and the way children are indoctrinated to carry on their elders' unfinished battles. He talks about the apparent absence of God in all these disasters. God is not absent, he says, but is being shut out by our prideful assumption that we know best. The remedy is learning to observe ourselves and recognize the turning points we take. His comments on the meaning of the verb "watch" in Scripture are for me the highlight of the book.

The conclusion is more optimistic than seems warranted, I think. At least for the near term. I would have agreed with it, had I read this six months ago, but since then events have shown that evil can be revealed with all its warts and yet be accepted enthusiastically by vast numbers of people. I think we are bringing some very bad times down upon ourselves. But hopefully Kupelian is right when he says Truth will eventually prevail.

Read this book to understand yourself, not for affirmations about what is wrong with other people.

A book most everyone should read. Helpful insight as to why the world is so degenerate. With good solutions that we can all use to make our world a better place.

Like his first book, this one as ldo cannot be fully understood in one reading. The fact that his first book and this second book is a modern day miracle. A must read for anyone who truly desires not to be just another "sheep" lead by the media and political parties and college and university know it all.
