This is merely a commentary on Bertrand Russell's work, not an original Russell text. Be forewarned if you are looking for original material!

Here's the empathetic Bertrand Russell trying to assuage people's misery, labouring as we all do under the weight of wholly obscene social relations wherein we have little save insecurity and pain. His weakness is that he fails to direct our attention to the source problem, namely the continued existence of monopoly capitalism/imperialism. He does show us how we can make the best of our lives under this archaic system that needs to be swept into the dustbin of history.
