them : adventures with extremists

i have just started reading them – adventures with extremists by jon ronson. it’s a brilliant read, hilarious and really thoughtprovoking err almost scary at the same time. great journalism.
these are the introductuary quotes [the quality of which, btw, often is one defining moment for me, whether i buy a book or not]:

i think it bodes well for world peace that Friends is a success everywhere in the world.

when i was coming up, it was a dangerous world, and you knew exactly who they were. it was us versus them, and it was clear who them was. today, we are not so shure who they are, but we know they’re there.
