really liked it

Everything makes more sense when put into perspective. Very interesting point of view. What makes it interesting is that I seem to notice some changes, fluctuations, as you wish, in a modern society, in politics, quality of living, implicit promises and beliefs of people. Sometimes these changes are small, sometimes they are radical shifts. And this book attempt to make a clear, historical explanation. What compelling about the explanation is that it makes sense. It shows some facets you didn't think about before, because you forgot them. Or even didn't know them, because you've been always living in a certain context, set by long history of humankind. Reading about how this context was set up is eye opening.
