Description

We hear some myths and lies so frequently that they become difficult to distinguish from the voices in our heads: Civilization is human-kind's greatest accomplishment. Progress is undeniable. Today is better than any yesterday. Count your blessings. You're lucky to be alive here and now. Well, maybe we are and maybe we aren't. Civilized to Death counters the idea that progress is inherently good, arguing that the "progress" that defines our age is closer to the progression of a disease than its cure.
