Literary Neanderthals (and you thought they were stupid!)
One of the online journals I read fairly regularly is MercatorNet, a site that features articles on a variety of subjects, whose common link is attention to the inherent dignity of the human person. The subjects of the articles are taken from news headlines, and one of the aims of MercatorNet's editorial policy is to take on polemically the assumptions embedded in many offerings put out by "objective" journalistic media. Or, as the MercatorNet editorial staff put it,
William Golding's The Inheritors: Were Neanderthals pre-lapsarian humans?
Jasper Fforde's Lost in a Good Book: Neanderthals would not thank us for their return
