"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I am definitely adopting this new tribal group view and applying it where appropriate.
This book is well worth using to help boys form their self ID as they grow to be men.
Jack talks about emotionally and spiritually separating from the Empire (of nothing), which I agree with, and goes on about using the Empire rather than running away to a dream of isolation, which is a very good message, but I think he needed another chapter on how to thrive without getting stomped.
Rome was not always at war with its barbaric neighbors. They traded, allied, got along much of the time while keeping their respective distinctions; a bit like wildlife does - which is a useful model: mingle in ways peaceful or not, possibly co-dependent, but still separate.
Perhaps Jack will take that on in his next book.
But what and how do we teach our sons?
How can we get back to our primitive roots?
How can we put mechanisms in place to start building these tribes? Are there truly robust templates that are sustainable and viable in the tech infused modern world? Is this just goofy inconsequential play acting in the woods?
This book was lazy. Or perhaps premature.
We needed more.
That said, buy it, read it.
And become a barbarian.
