Great Book & Very Relevant
I just recently read this book (scored a 53 on the chart) and just read the post script for the 2008 presidential elections. My views on life are changing. I read this and thoroughly agreed with it, as the people at church confirm this finding unequivocally.
2008 postscript writes:

As noted in the book, high RWAs travel in tight circles, getting their information
from each other and sources that tell them what they want to hear. That’s why so many of
them believe Obama is an Arab and a Muslim and a terrorist and so on. Their friends tell
them he is, and they tell their friends.

You would not believe the number of emails that I get from my conservative businessmen christian acquaintances from church.

They can't wait to get back into power here in the U.S. but I fear for the future if they do. The End Times that they so fervently believe and preach will become a self fulfilling prophecy!

Authoritarian President
I thought that this article was appropriate for this thread: Donald Trump: Strong Leader Or Dangerous Authoritarian?

I wonder how he would do on this test?

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul
