When will the Russian people say enough?

BOOK OF THE WEEK
I first read this book back in 1976, two years after it came out in 1974. He was concerned about the state of communications in 1974. Well, from my limited vantage point, things have become far worse.
If you are curious about how things once were, you may want to check this book out. It contains ideas such as this, again written in 1974:
It may be that we have entered a time when some groups would do better to ignore each other than to communicate with each other.
Not communicating saves energy; it keeps people from worrying about things they cannot do anything about; and it eliminates an enormous amount of useless talk.
So, are you interested in this book?
