‘The world isn’t being changed as effectively as it should be because many of us are forgetting to study the tips that can usefully be drawn from religion. We should use the history of religion to inform us about the role of repetition, ritual and beauty in the name of changing how things are’.

So says philosopher and author Alain De Botton.  And so if you are a budding social reformer or want to change the world for the better, read what De Botton has to say in his aptly named article ‘On the Desire to Change the World’: http://www.thebookoflife.org/on-changing-world/.  It ‘s well worth thinking about!
