On September 5th, 2019 we will discuss David Brooks and Weave, the Social Fabric Project.
But whether you come or not this book is well worth reading and corresponds with some of the most important issues of our time—how to commit to our interdependence in an ethical way that creates societal and thereby family and individual flourishing.
The Guardian’s assessment of David’s book seems a fair appraisal of it. Here is the final paragraph from that review:
“Paraphrasing TS Eliot, Brooks writes that the chief illusion of modern politics is “that you can build a system so perfect that the people in it do not have to be good”. This powerful book, Brooks’s best to date, may be especially valuable to those convinced they don’t need it.”
