Birth of the Chaordic Age
Alexander Kjerulf stopped by yesterday with a book called Birth of the Chaordic Age. On the back cover, it says:
“We are at that very point in time when a 400-year-old age is dying and another is struggling to be born—a shifting of culture, science, society, and institutions enormously greater than the world has ever experienced. Ahead, the possibiliy of regeneration of individuality, liberty, community and ethics such as the world has never known, and a harmony with nature, with one another and with the divine intelligence such as the world has always dreamed”.
Hm. I’m believing and hoping something along those lines myself, yet I always get this skeptical feeling in my stomach when I read such things. Maybe I’ve just been betrayed by hoaxes one too many time. Anyway, when I turned the cover and found out that this book was written by the founder and former CEO of VISA (yes, the credit card company) I was relieved. That increases the chances that the book has got at least one foot on the ground.
I’m looking forward to reading it, it looks very interesting.
