https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75650151/XML_DARW_GC_Axial/Enigma_of_the_Axial_Age_pdf2_2016.pdf this is close to a final draft….the book is at the printers, so onto the next: The Crisis of Modernity…
One place to start is with a modified radical left perspective, but one informed by a larger perspective than the crystallized junk produced by marxism. Marxism has a lot of rough drafts and out of date ‘this and that’, but its core can be a set of key ideas to use as kindling.
The discussion of the Axial Age can be useful as a shock to historical materialists.
The material in Enigma of the Axial Age is non-dogmatic and designed to make a punch point then phase out into a series of potential explanations. The study could be a way to the ‘church of historical memory’ proposed here several times. This is the same as a secular humanism, but somewhat broader in its thinking.
The title is very alarming: in plain english, marxists have to dance to sixshooters for the near future…as is now they are going to fuck up our last chance here…who is going to get it straight?
