Wow. A really well-researched book. His thesis is definitely well supported, but sometimes I wanted a bit more connective tissue or explanation or theory. Still, religion undoubtedly fueled this war, unfortunately. That much seems indisputable.

I was honored to be included in this edition of Relief alongside so many great writers. The poem "The Silence of One Voice" by D.S. Martin was freaking awesome. I keep reading it over and over.

H.L. Mencken
“Civilization, in fact, grows more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. Wars are no longer waged by the will of superior men, capable of judging dispassionately and intelligently the causes behind them and the effects flowing out of them. The are now begun by first throwing a mob into a panic; they are ended only when it has spent its ferine fury.”
H.L. Mencken, In Defense Of Women

David Foster Wallace
“Frank's bio prompts us to to ask ourselves why we seem to require of our art an ironic distance from deep convictions or desperate questions, so that contemporary writers have either to make jokes of them or else try to work them in under cover of some formal trick like intertextual quotation or incongruous juxtaposition, sticking the really urgent stuff inside asterisks as part of some multivalent defamiliarization flourish or some shit...Our intelligentsia distrust strong belief, open conviction. Material passion is one thing, but ideological passion disgusts us on some deep level.”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays
