To keep a mouth shut

I have been thrown around from waking to sleeping and so haven’t been able to read any further into The End of Faith but it has been turning in my mind and I am beginning to wish I’d been a little more measured in my initial outburst. Pitched against something like Straw Dogs this work could simply be seen as another work of faith, ironically. It does have an almost dogmatic insistence upon cultural change.
It also fails to register (so far as I have thus far read) the more animalistic influences on our predilection towards war and cruelty; territorialism, tribalism. Perhaps the sad truth is that it is more than faith that makes us bad animals!
