Getting and not getting we lay waste our powers

From Mark Helprin's Digital Barbarism :
The right worships growth, the left, asceticism. Fine tuned.
A third of the way through, I am enjoying the book immensely. The first third argues against what Helprin calls the acceleration of tranquility and points to the cultural underpinnings of the anti-intellectual property movement. Defenders of the information wants to be free viewpoint hate this book. I am finding it to be very thought-provoking. And like everything Helprin writes, it is a stylistic delight. I am scheduled to interview him for EconTalk.
