Changing the politcal outlook

A great book not recommended for ideological prejudice - mind readers. It might be that our leaders whether political or religious, are driving more for his / her diminish sense of self than for ideology, creed or believe. Their "true followers/believers" sometimes are useful only for enhancing personal purposes derived from an internally damage - ego - ashamed - poorly personal sense -self.

The carnage is not based in paranoia but in male biology.

The description of the urge to kill in the name of God and other ideologies is well chronicled in this book, as is the need to identify an "evil other." The authors, however, miss the forest for the well chronicled trees. The violence is rooted more in male biology than paranoid psychology. Male biology needs to form "teams" and violently compete with and exterminate each other, and it is extremely inventive in doing so, from football teams to religions.
