really liked it

Steyn chronicles the statist decay of Western Civilization (collecting/recycling material from his newspaper columns) and predicts a Sino-centric world in the not too distant future. Frightening stuff. Steyn takes the blinders off so we can see how many aspects of our private lives have become dominated by the government and does so in such an imperative way as to force introspection (Can I justify my existence as a grad student funded by government grants? Wouldn't I be happier if I were actually producing something for which a market existed?).

So... it was a good book, but it also felt a bit disjointed. This is likely because much of the material was recycled from newspaper columns. But well worth the read.
