Dear Steven Pinker,

Regarding your latest, desperately upbeat book,
we are, unfortunately for the biosphere,
not 'rational beings'. We are cunning,
calculating, crisis-creating creatures,
who have not, by any stretch of the imagination
'made the world a better place'.

We use reason mostly for self-glorification,
destruction, denialism - and saving face.

Reason pre-disposes us to - is, I think, a pre-requisite of - hypocrisy.
