    The Decline and Fall of the Faith-Based Community

    David Noble has summed up what it means to be a part of the Reality-Based Community. He lays bare the ever-elusive myth of the promised land and charts its course from early Western religious scriptures to the beliefs of today's politicians and economists. His argument is that belief in the 'promised land' of U.S.-style democracy and deregulated markets is an inheritance from the Judeo-Christian template. Criticism of this template (by global justice activists and the like), he says, signals a fundamental rethinking of the Western paradigm - and it's about time.
