Localized? In what way?

The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth--that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one. H. L. Mencken

Again, that seems to be a pretty localized hang-up. 
It's a universal concept that encompasses many
different flavors and occurs inside (and outside!) of
many different religions.

I look for the latest title by my favorite authors.  A
catchy title may make me more likely to pick one book
over another, but a title that doesn't catch my fancy
as much has zero influence on /not/ picking up the book.
