I have a uestion that I think you might be able to help me with should we send this book into space You know download it into a golden thumb drive or perhaps seal a nice leather bound set in a container strap it to a rocket and let it float like the Voyager space probe for all of time There are weighty reasons for answering in either the positive or the negative Let us examine themOn the one hand we have every abominable act every imaginable vice every imprudent lunacy able to be committed by man here recorded After all this was written by a man who considered history little than the register of the crimes follies and misfortunes of mankind Imagine an alien race picking up the capsule and deciphering our language Imagine the looks on their faces if they have faces when they hear of the grotesue bunch of bipeds on the other side of the galaxy who do nothing but rape pillage and kill each other Imagine this happens after our sun explodes or we blow ourselves up this is the last utterance of an extinguished species Would we want it to be this Why not Don uixote or The Adventures of Huckleberry FinnOn the other hand intimately connected with this narrative of wickedness and stupidity inextricably intertwined in the fabric of this book is the genius of its author Who could read a single page of this great book and not be humbled by the uality of his thought the care of his method the power of his prose If ever there was a document that singlehandedly redeems all of the idiocy our race insistently indulges in it s this book At least the aliens would know that one of us had a good head on our shouldersIt is impossible to discuss this work without its author In perusing The Decline and Fall we find innumerable facets of Gibbon the philosopher the poet the politician the theologian the strategist the humanist the public servant the lawyer the yellow journalist the sage and the historian But what we find most of all is Gibbon the lover of life No man has ever loved the variegated tapestry of human affairs from the daily ritual of a serf to the greatest battles ever waged from the planning of a palace to the marital suabbles of a prince He will cast a glance at events large and small weigh the facts with a disinterested hand and with a knowing nod and amiable wink he will describe them in his inimitable prose Gibbon views life like well aged wine he will take it in sips and draughts savoring every strain in the flavor from the musky rotten odor to the sweet honeyed tinge and then discuss it with you at length He is a connoisseur of life Won t you join him for a drink
