    A Jewish intellectual in the 20h century proposing world government? Why is this unique perspective not discussed more often?

    Hey, I'm just saying what was in the book. Besides, not everyone has studied this period as much as you.

    It's kinda fascinating, though. You've got all those people who claim "it was a simpler time then," when really that time was just as complicated as now, or any other period in time.

    I haven't studied the period, but I know that libertarian-leaning Jews weren't invented until after the Holocaust

    Day to day lives were simpler, most people were still just farmers and rural.

    Eh, is working at McDonalds really that much more complicated? Nah, we just think life is more complicated now because we have better communication.

    Anyway, I don't think I'm going to finish the book. I've got other things to read, and it's apparently an edited compilation. Like, apparently Einstein got some criticism from feminists after a visit to the US, and he responded to them. The book, however, only includes three sentences of his response, and doesn't mention what problem the feminists apparently had. Disappointing. Besides, I have to read things that are better for what I'm writing.

    It's still pretty funny that Einstein was so socialist. I should have known it after reading that he hung out with Charlie Chaplin.

    Read the Cyber Effect by Mary Iken a couple of months ago. Thought it was a good book, though some things were taken out of context.

    Life is more complicated. Facebook alone complicates things immensely.

    Lives are so easy that people now are just thinking up ways to make life more complicated just to not be bored.

    Let's see...I'm nearly through a book on emotional strength by Charles Stanley, but I can't remember the title right now. Also working on a book on the Korean War, a book on space politics, and a book on Christianity in China.

    Books are great.

    I finally obtained the novelization of the Rage game from 2011 (or was it 2012). Am comparing it to the game right now
