it was amazing
Read in September, 2011

In "The Abolition of Man", C.S. Lewis presents a solid case of the dangers of moral relativism. True 50 years ago when Lewis wrote it and visionary as it applies more than ever today. I highly recommend this book. If you choose to read it, ask yourself if you recognize any ways, sometimes subtle and sometimes not so subtle, in which you or your children are being conditioned to think through our education system, scientific "advancements", the media, government, etc. The "nonjudgmental, politically correct, what's good for you, may not be good for me" mindset is a house of cards. In his thoroughly researched appendix, Lewis traces the history of various cultures of what is and is not morally acceptable and builds a case for universal truth in order to preserve a society.
