Interesting article, certainly would like to see more of the author, particularly in tackling specific anti-civ literature.

I'd like to see this too, they refer to specific schools of thought but never quote anything directly, so it's hard to know what arguments they're countering exactly.

To be fair, most anti-civ arguments I've seen have been based on very poorly defined terms and don't actually give substantial arguments to counter. Nonetheless, yeah, it'd be neat to see more of this guy.

I think that's because it's a philosophy more than a science - a general way of thinking rather than a step by step guide to ideology.

Sure, but philosophy still relies on logical justification. Post-civ seems to have none, from my experience.
