The Web of Trust
Bill Whittle, if you don’t already know, is one of the finest essayists alive.
I won’t excerpt, you need to absorb Bill in big chunks to truly appreciate his work. Suffice it to say that Bill takes on big ideas with both seriousness and humor. His operant metaphor in his Introduction was Coastlines and Maps; his premise in Chapter One is Civilization and The Web of Trust.
Bill has written an earlier book, Silent America. I haven’t read it, but if it in any measure reflects the keen insight Bill shows in his essays, it would be worth the read.
