I do imagine a society that fosters creativity. I live a life that fosters creativity - for myself and my children. I am creating the society I want to live in.

Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond - The book attempts to explain why Eurasian civilizations (in which he includes North Africa) have survived and conquered others, while refuting the assumption that Eurasian hegemony is due to any form of Eurasian intellectual, moral or inherent genetic superiority. Diamond argues that the gaps in power and technology between human societies originate in environmental differences, which are amplified by various positive feedback loops.
