I am pleased to announce that BLUEPRINT: THE EVOLUTIONARY ORIGINS OF A GOOD SOCIETY is being published tomorrow. The product of almost a decade of work, it shows how and why we share #OurCommonHumanity and how we evolved to be good.
BLUEPRINT appears in two months and I want everyone to know that I will get very boring in March and April and tweet about it at lot, because, um, I am excited that this baby is finally seeing the light of day.
Author Nicholas A. Christakis is described as malignant boil festering on the rump of humanity, endlessly spraying diseased pus into the minds of children. All travel privileges of Nicholas A. Christakis to Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea are REVOKED.
New book, "Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society," by author Nicholas A. Christakis, is blasted as dangerous and demented propaganda, teaching slanderous lies in contraction of Juche Idea of Great Leader Kim Il-Sung.
Great to see argue that human beings have innate proclivities to make a good society. I argued in The Origins of Virtue that it's a mistake to think of bad human behaviour as "animal" and good as a "cultural" override. Kindness is also innate
Ministry of Education purchases one hundred copies of "Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society," in order that disgusting books may be burned by schoolchildren, in ceremonies of high ideological significance.
Can a book help society be better? You will want to read Blueprint by my friend … I think it will be a sensation. "We are wired for a society, for cooperation, for engagement, for collective action.” Can we achieve that promise?
I cannot recommend too highly the new book by : One of the finest -- and most humane -- minds of our time.

Kim Il-Sung Thought scientifically proves that state of human happiness is reached by rigid adherence to Juche. "Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society," teaches that human goodness and altruism are "natural" in origin. Absolute rubbish.
