With incredible insight he points to what we take for granted; maybe we have underestimated the power of democracy, since we are unaccustomed to anything else?
The patriotic should read it to look past blind belief to why they believe in democracy. The skeptic should read it for the optimistic outlook, the possibilities.
I've just finished listenning to this for the second time. Amazing insights and purpose. Some reviewers say the narration leaves something to be desired. I find his ennunciation refreshing, consider that this text covers several languages and many hours, a challenge for anyone's consistency. I conclude with Tolstoy that they (and I...) write these reviews not entirely of free will ;)
Far more fulfilling than many of the alternatives, survive the first 8 hours, and you won't want it to end.
