Straw Dogs by John Gray

Not to be missed... for the curmudgeon, the anarchist, the elitist, this is about humanity, or rather the myth of humanity.

"There is an enormous grey economy supplying drugs and sex. The function of this new economy, legal and illegal, is to entertain and distract a population which - though it is busier that ever before - secretly suspects that it is useless."

"Other animals do not need a purpose in life. A contradiction to itself, the human animal cannot do without one. Can we not think of the aim of life as being simply to see?"
