As I said yesterday, 'tis the season for last-minute gifts… no matter who you are. I shared the names of four potential books for the children in your life. Now, for the adults on your holiday gift list… The True Believer, by Eric Hoffer America once had a longshoreman philosopher, a Socrates of the docks. Eric Hoffer had no formal education, but he had a brain. He used his brain to promote the dignity and the sanctity of the individual. Hoffer opposed every kind of ideology that attempts to crush the individual – from the hobnailed boots of fascism to the floppy sandals of the 1960s New Left. Hoffer's most important work was his analysis of anti-individualistic mass movements and the kind of people who are drawn to them. That book was called The True Believer, published in 1951.
