The Fall: The Insanity of the Ego in Human History and the Dawning of a New Era

Author(s): Steve Taylor

New Age

It is not "natural" for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, parents to oppress children, for individuals or nations to accumulate massive wealth and power, to abuse nature, to even despise our own bodies and feel guilty for experiencing natural desires. The roots of our current malaise lie in an "ego-explosion" that happened several thousand years BC. "Primitive" pre-civilization men and women lived longer, healthier, happier and more productive and fulfilled lives than we do. We need to learn from their approach to life rather than dismiss it. This is the revolutionary thesis of this well-researched, highly praised volume, overturning the accepted wisdom of the last few centuries.
