Left in Dark Times: A Stand Against the New Barbarism by Bernard-Henri Lévy

“Tolerance, as we now see, could be the cemetery of democracies, while secular concepts are their crucible.” One of several such theories that challenges the “neoprogressive reason” prevalent on both sides of the Atlantic a.k.a. leftism (in Europe) and liberalism (in the States) is the topic of this tome.

But cutting through these labels to delve into the foundations of various schools of thought, the author makes good efforts to shed some light and clear things up– and has the courage to call it the “new barbarism”. Powerful arguments for a new political and moral vision of our times.

I may not agree with everything, but it is certainly some thought-provoking fare.
