The Death of Humanity: and the Case for Life Read Online Free - Do you believe human life is inherently valuable?

The Death of Humanity explores our culture's declining respect for the sanctity of human life, drawing on philosophy and history to reveal the dark road ahead for society if we lose our faith in human life.
