I have the intention of adding Bacevich’s work to my bookshelf. I’d also be interested in reading The March of Folly because I consider The Guns of August to be one of the best books of military history I’ve encountered.
Unlike the good doctor, Ron Paul, books on economics tend to bore me. Though I did enjoy Bill McKibben’s Deep Economy and Joseph Pearce’s Small is Still Beautiful.
"The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven fully to enjoy God is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands or wives or children, or the company of earthly friends are but shadows; God is the substance. These are but the scattered beams; God is the sun. These are but streams; God is the ocean."
