As the gap between the ultra-rich and the poor ever widens; as corporations increasingly dictate their agendas to governments who in turn clamp-down even further on their citizens basic human rights and privacy - then no wonder the world looks to be spiralling downwards into a state of total chaos.
That's how things look on the surface at least; but within these pages I'll present the case that the global turmoil we experience every day is actually being controlled by unseen hands.
This book also highlights positive activism; focussing on the concept of 'Citizens Not Slaves' as a growing global idea open to anyone who wishes to embrace it. Each chapter details a multitude of social-political problems; including brief historical outlines of how and why they happened. I also put forth possible solutions to those problems as well.
It doesn't have to be read 'cover to cover' - feel free to delve in at any chapter and read it in any order that works for you. If you're already well versed in a particular historical background, simply skip that part and move on to any part that tweaks your interest. Simply take what you like from this book and disregard the rest.
I hope the contents might also inspire you to do your own research on any topic within or lead you on to investigate something related and at the end of the day, draw your own conclusions.
Throughout the following pages, I hope to convince you that we can be either free 'citizens' [pro-active] or 'slaves' [passive] by our own choosing. I will also be putting forth that 'democratic-meritocracy' is the best political model for the future that fills all the seismic gaps in the aftermath, left by every underground call for revolution.
