Book Review: The World Turned Upside Down

The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth, and Power is Melanie Phillips magnificent effort at explaining how the world, especially Britain, traveled from the scientific and liberating European Enlightenment attitude to the pro-tyranny and intolerant bent of many intellectuals and governments today. A timeless book, the current generation should read it and ponder now, while future generations will value it for its stories of how and where the West messed up - assuming future generations will still be free and of a mind to inquire about their own development, that is, for there is no assurance who will win the battle.
