John Gray, a well-known conservative thinker influential on the Thatcher government in the 1980s, dropped a bombshell in 1999 when he published “False Dawn: the Delusions of Global Capitalism”, in which he argued that the conservative agenda was no longer viable.

His best-selling “Straw Dogs”, an eclectic series of short essays on the place of human beings in the world, abounds with one-liners such as “Humans think they are free, conscious beings, when in truth they are deluded animals.” His most recent book “Black Mass: Apocalyptic Religion and the Death of Utopia” is a compelling study of the connections between religious rhetoric and movements as disparate as the Bolsheviks, the Jacobins and the Nazis.
