really liked it
Read from October 02 to December 23, 2011

An interesting discussion of the violence that underlies Western "Civilization." Not exactly eye-opening if you've studied much history or read the right books, but Jensen's assemblage of violations and horrors really shows the scope of the West's destructive nature. I'm fairly certain he might have covered every victimized group ever known. Depressing but enlightening.

12.0% "This is a rather horrifying book, committed to detailing, in grim recitation, atrocious acts of violence committed (thus far) in the name of everything but actual "hatred." I sense a deep bias against white culture though. I'll withhold judgment until I'm finished."
