The book we will discuss is “The True Believer” by Eric Hoffer. This book was originally published in 1951 still you will find an eerie relevance with today’s trends. Hoffer explores the roots of fanaticism. Who are the individuals most prone to become fanatics in a movement? How do movements encourage this extremism? This book is also short and pairs well with our last reading “On Tyranny.” Even if you have not completed the book, come and discuss its ideas.
