Ross Douthat wants to know Are We Unraveling? He slices and dices the question. But before I get to that I’d like to discuss my reading style. I cycle around between a few hundred ebooks and read them in parallel. I highly recommend trying this. Causes all sorts of connections. It expands my awareness about a wide range of topics. Though some of these books will only get finished if I live a long time. One of the many partially read books in my tablets describes a previous period that seemed like it might lead to an unraveling.
