This was introduced to me and I finally got to read it today! It’s a little lengthy if you’re not much of a reader but totally worth the read! Daniel Quinn, who’s written Ishmael (which I still have yet to read), but don’t worry, it’s on my list) talks about our relationship with the other animals around us, how humans will die out if we don’t change and how predictably unpredictable the future is. All this while citing example from the Dark Ages and the Renaissance. I would go into more detail, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t do it justice. Give it a go.
