    A must-read revolutionary tale!

    John H. Wormser's To Make a Perfect World centers around Operation Pax, a full-fledged attempt at restoring world peace and igniting change in human behavior. President Ron Senate, the protagonist and embodiment of John H. Wormser's dream for harmony, envisions two possible futuristic scenarios: 1) A large chunk of the middle east, including Kuwait, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan are buried in destruction and death as a result of a nuclear war; 2) The perfection of the human personality mechanism, the C-chip-though considered legally unethical-results in the ultimate goal of global joy and happiness.

    Using CIA director, and good friend, William Tauriac's genius mind, President Senate vies to build a new world order; however, this desire is constantly challenged by a human race that is full of "faults such as greed, jealousy, gluttony, vanity and worst of all conceit." More importantly, Senate acknowledges that the human race, along with its negative qualities, is inherently imbued with "humanity, civility, charity, comedy and best of all the ability to love others more than one self." In a nutshell, Senate's goal is to implement Tauriac's C-chip behavior mechanism to bring out the positive attributes of human personality, resulting in a world devoid of war.

    As the plot unfolds, Operation Pax faces a series of obstacles, but ultimately succeeds in providing each individual with global equality. From systematic governmental changes to the eradication of caste systems and an increased workforce, To Make A Perfect World accomplishes the most precious and globally beneficial achievement: peace.

    The passage that captures the spirit of the text, spoken by President Senate reads, "We may never have a perfect world. There will always be criminals, juvenile delinquents, and of course there will be accidents, illnesses, and both natural and unnatural disasters, all these things will be here forever. The one problem we have solved is we no longer have to fight each other and that is the greatest gift this generation of connected beings has given the world."

    John Wormser's To Make A Perfect World is exciting, intriguing, and adventurous, interwoven with a thought-provoking philosophical element that is pertinent to contemporary global relations. It's no secret that John Wormser is a dreamer; however, by planting the seeds of his vision into the minds of the audience, Wormser's text potentially holds the power to create change. To Make A Perfect World is a must-read revolutionary tale that is the perfect fusion of an entertaining, yet meaningful and globally relevant storyline. Imagine-a global generation that knows no war. Astounding.

    A New World Order

    In To Make a Perfect World, writer John H. Wormser creates a global community led by the United States with world peace as the ultimate goal. This story joins together major advances in technology and a philosophy of equality for all. It is a creative approach to the problems that ail people across the globe. As the story opens, President Ron Senate discusses Operation Pax with his CIA director, William A. Tauriac. Tauriac is the developer of a mechanism that alters human personality. This mechanism is the basis from which the President plans to build a new world order. But the President struggles with making the right decisions throughout this operation. His need to balance change and the rights of individuals is constantly challenged. The desire to eliminate war and establish peace globally helps President Senate to make the most difficult decisions of his political career. Operation Pax targets certain corrupt leaders in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Radicals in Germany and Israel who are running for their nations' highest offices are viewed as the most dangerous to the goal of world peace. These leaders have a fascist agenda for their countries, with violence at its base. It is this type of thinking that leads President Senate to continue to champion Operation Pax, even when the safety of civilians is at risk: "Our own high opinions of what we believe in are the root cause of most of the problems in this world." Wormser is the author of The Radio Philosopher (2003) and A Happy Life and the Keys to Heaven (2006). His vision of a united global community is ambitious and inspiring. The author adds balance to this world peace experiment by cultivating characters that not only buy into the plan of a new world order, but also those who actively plot against it. Wormser does a wonderful job of illustrating the broad spectrum of human behavior; our opinions, desires and need for control. To Make a Perfect World is a daring, compelling tale about the future of Earth and her inhabitants that balances hope with the reality of human nature.
