‘How We can All Live Happily into the 22nd Century’
‘The Unique Post Covid-19 Opportunity for All Humankind’
Published 29th March 2021 – Print & E-Book
In this book the author challenges, to its very core, the conventional wisdom of Capitalism and the supposed ‘freedoms’ that is purports to offer. It explains why the world is in the mess that it is, determines the root causes of Covid-19, and offers the reader the opportunity for an alternative. It is neither a ‘conspiracy theory’ nor an argument for Centralised Government or ‘Marxism’.
Introducing and analysing the process of transition from Feudalism, Mercantilism and Industrial Capitalism on to Post-Industrial Capitalism, the prime underlying causes and effects of Humankind’s current predicament are clearly illustrated. It exposes the myths of Capitalism and its coercive, self-inflicted slavery that global populations willingly and dotingly absorb, almost unknowingly, into their lifestyles. It deals with the effects of the ‘Internet’s Silent Surreptitious Influencers’ – Yahoo Amazon Google Facebook.
The book explores the issues and crisis of Climate Change and examines and illustrates the potential dangers not only of Climate Change but the simultaneous emerging technologies of: 5G, Internet of Things ‘IoT’, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence ‘AI’, Quantum Computing, Bio-Technology, Blockchain, Nano Technology, Big Data. All of these disparate, multifarious technologies in simultaneous, but disconnected development, coming together eventually to fruition, perhaps by 2030/2040 or thereabouts, has impending disaster written all over it.
The author is not nihilistic but presents the thesis that Covid-19 with its global halt on Capitalism presents the world with the unprecedented opportunity for reflection, self-reassessment and fresh analysis for the future pursuit of true Self-realisation and true Long-term Happiness. How this unique time in History should be best used for the true progress of Humankind is dealt with in the book’s final chapters.
