really liked it

Westover’s story is as gripping as her prose is moving. There is a lot for the reader to process from her memoir. The following are my top three takeaways: (1) once objective reality and knowable facts become dismissible, the physically strong will be left to make and justify the rules based on fabricated conspiracies, elastic theologies, and magical thinking; (2) to become educated is a choice and does not happen passively; (3) number 2 is the remedy to number 1.

Also, can somebody make this a movie already?
