Civilization can be conceived of as a linguistic virus whose sole goal is to mindlessly spread throughout an entire population. It has done nothing for us but come close to ensuring the ultimate annihilation of the human species. It has not solved a single "problem" without creating more problems -the endless, exponential and unchecked growth of human population, depletion of resources, and chronic depression, stress and anxiety. Its technological and "moral" "advancements" only give us the illusion of security and peace while threatening to wipe out or enslave not only humanity but most life on the planet. This satirical book mounts a scathing, caustic attack on all systems of belief founded on irrational assumptions and seeks to build a logical, coherent philosophy based on logic and the comparative behavior of apex social mammals.show more
