In this intellectual tour de force, Saul argues that the West now toils unconsciously in the grip of a stifling "corporatist" structure that serves the needs of business managers and technocrats as it promotes the segmentation of society into competing interest groups and ethnic blocks.

A truly educated and insightful analysis of the degradation of modern society. Saul is truly clever and concise. Every paragraph presents logical elucidations, supported with knowledge, wit, and sly nuggets of humor. John Raulston Saul should not be an author, he should educate politicians and CEOs. The world would be a far better place. This book IS literature of value !!

Wow, what a profound compilation of philosophical ideas. Great read for those starting to question society in 2012. The "miss" (albeit a big one) is the value people place on their fiat currencies and that as a driver of their complacency. If people truely understood that they have little of real value without true education, they may be more willing to stand in front of corporatism with a shield and sword. This is definitely worth the quick read.
