Rant summary comment

Now reading Ian McEwan's "Nutshell", a rant by a lecturer, repeated by a secret observer, about the multiple challenges of our age, closes with this comment, "We've built a world too complicated and dangerous for our quarrelsome natures to manage.  In such hopelessness, the general vote will be for the supernatural.  It's dusk in the second Age of Reason."

As is not uncommon in his work,  McEwan uses this new book as a canvas to comment on anything and everything.
