I read a introduction to Spinoza and found a very interesting statement on the destruction of society as a consequence of people trying to protect others peoples feelings by not confronting each other.

I have now gone through this book several times and I cant find it again.

Can anyone help me find the statement or book reference?

Thank you.

@Espen,
Copy the title of your thread you just started, copy it into a Google search.

You'll find several references to what you are looking for in books that have been scanned by Google.

Or a cure to modern thought.

@Ding an Sich,
Baruch Spinoza. Only one of the most cogent thinkers of all time on the subject of religious consciousness. Have a little respect, boys.
