Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to Globalization of Democracy - Francis Fukuyama

Death of the Liberal Class by Peter Hedges has moved from being my evening read to my bathroom read. It is a quick book that I have already picked up the theme from in the opening introduction. Sadly, I am reading it now just to finish it and make sure that I do not miss any points. The Economist is on my hit list this week for the periodical. I should mention that I hold subsciptions for four periodicals that I read on a regular basis: The Economist, Foreign Affairs, Maclean's and Lapham's Quarterly. You will see issues of particular note rotate weekly through this post. If robotics is an interest of yours, I recommend tracking down the most recent issue of The Economist 1843 magazine. Trump continues to dominate my periodicals. And lastly, I am re-reading Political Order and Political Decay by my favourite social scientist Francis Fukyama. This is just because I love reading this stuff and maybe I am feeling a little more decay these days among our political institutions.
