About this deal

An effective strategy but only in world with people willing to concede to interpreting life through a low resolution, binary lens. This book demonstrates the relevance of philosophy to our everyday lives, and offers some clear-eyed tools to those who want to learn how to better fight for justice and liberation for all. We’ve got the most informed readers in Scotland, asking each other the big questions about the future of our country.

Well written and thoughtful, I highly recommend this book especially if you're a person who has been looking for a way to ease into a rather heavy subject. Probably not: let’s face it, we have our problems and Shahvisi lays out the hard evidence of our Travis Bickle tendencies, the murder and rape statistics, the familicide data.This creates cultural and political tribes, makes people nervous about engaging at all, or leads to the issues to be trivialised or attributed to the excessive sensitivity of 'snowflakes' to 'identity politics'. Instead it is the dogmatic assertion of a dated ideology and of little use to anyone wishing to take a fresh look at issues or consider others’ views in a charitable light. The author will drive profit through her sloppy and intellectually dishonest labour for years to come.

Growing up in the Institute of Basic Life Principles community, which she came to realize was “a cult, thriving on a culture of fear and manipulation,” Duggar and her 18 siblings were raised never to question parental authority. We live in an age of information overload, and unfortunately, 'information' is often misinformation. We want our comments to be a lively and valuable part of our community - a place where readers can debate and engage with the most important local issues. But living in echo chambers blunts our thinking, and if we can't persuade others, we have little hope of collectively bringing about change.And she’s not afraid to challenge the key figures of the liberal establishment either – from Thom Yorke to JK Rowling, Salman Rushdie to Noam Chomsky.
