A Canticle For Lebowitz

Posted to WritersAndGenres

It wasn't exactly powerful or even all that important but if memory serves it's the only book I ever read that came close to accurately reflecting the tragic path mankind is currently undertaking.

It's a vicious circle basically we'll build weapons we'll make treaties we'll break treaties and we'll use our big guns, the result is all out nuclear war. The people who are left will promise never to let mankind go down that path again and what happens they build weapons they make treaties they break treaties and they use their big guns.
