7 'Av 5765/12 August 2005: Erewhon


Nine Days information:Notable commentary:Today’s substitute weird thing is Samuel Butler’s Erewhon. This is a semi-dystopic story about a country in which people do and believe insane things—which if one thinks hard enough are recognizably just the logical conclusions of insane things people in our own society do and believe. (The worst dystopia is being saved for Sunday, the Ninth of ’Av.) Go ponder, and Shabbath shalom.
