I have read Ken's books since the first one. They have impacted my life greatly. I could never really put a finger on why Trump won. Now I understand devolution even better. That niggling in the back of my brain when I voted for Trump makes sense now. I voted for Obama both times. Not because I thought he was special, but because the Republicans embraced religious fundamentalism beginning with 43. Trump is religious like Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Lincoln, TR and FDR. Meaning he is a deist. There was no way I vote for Hillary. I went to a Trump rally here in St. Augustine, Fl expecting to see way to many rusted out pickup trucks and too few teeth and I could not have been more surprised. 60% were female. That is when I knew the press was full of bs and change was on the way. Inherently there is nothing wrong with American acceptionalism. I do not accept cannibalism any more than I accept muslim radicalism or any other flawed fundamentalism. I do embrace meritocracy and the big bang theory needs serious work. All the way up, all the way down is my working mantra. Thank you for that and thank you for this book and your insights. Sincerely, Rand Middleton

As the Trump phenomenon became more persistent to the point of him becoming president, I thought, I would really like to hear what Ken Wilber has to say about this. This book did not disappoint me. This book looks at the Trump phenomenon and the “culture wars” and what are the best ways to deal with them. Mr. Wilber explains why we have these radically different ways of looking at the world and why we are usually not able to understand where the other side is coming from. I highly recommend this book if you want to understand the dynamics of our current cultural crisis in America and want know what you can do about it. Another book of his that I also highly recommend that helps in understanding these cultural differences is “The Theory of Everything”.
