This was a wonderful book, until the critiques stopped being constructive, and became a flame fest against modern philosophy. There are a lot of good points here, but the attitude just gets you down. I find it intriguing, as it brings up points about what books took part in the destruction of World War 2. It's a devilish delight for me to read books that have collaborated in an orchestra of infamy. Reading Machiavelli and Rousseau wasn't as fun as reading them with this book. It gives a deeper reasoning behind the psyche of sadistic leaders, like Stalin.

I recommend this book for the strong willed, as it touches some sensitive notions that can be bias for the non-Catholic.
