Abolition of Man
In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis, sets out to persuade his audience of the importance and relevance of universal values such as courage and honor in contemporary society. Both astonishing and prophetic, The Abolition of Man is one of the most debated of Lewis's extraordinary works. National Review chose it as number seven on their "100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century."
Post-Modernism is like a copper nail in an oak tree. Eventually it poisons the tree and the oak dies. Thinking that good and evil have no relevancy to life destroys a culture and leaves it barren. That is the direction we are heading in. We are authors of our own destruction by believing that good and evil are subjective and not real. This poisoning has been going on so long that it takes on the qualities of a cancer. The body never battles cancer because it does not recognize it as a disease. The cancer then metastases and kills the body. This book was written more than 80 years ago, and yet analyzes our current condition. When truth no longer seems available, we seek something like it out. Why do you think young people are drawn to radical Islam? Read this book before your eyes are sown shut by skeptical, self centered, and mean spirited elitists disguised as social leaders.
