  1. This sounds like a great book. People are too willing to subscribe to an idea or a theory that they never follow to its logical, and often chilling, extreme. The vociferous support for deconstructionist Paul de Man after his posthumous exposure as a wartime Nazi propagandist is one example (see “Signs of the Times” by David Lehman). Another is the lionization of “Deep Ecologist” Arne Naess, who has been quoted as saying that 100 million is the ideal human population for the planet, but doesn’t go further to explain how he plans to get rid of the other 5,900,000,000 folks (see “The New Ecological Order” by Luc Ferry, and William Aiken in “Earthbound: Introductory Essays in Environmental Ethics”).

  2. This sounds like a good book – it’s now on my wishlist.
