The manifesto is new not only as such but above all because it is to be worked out, constructed and possibly turned into an action by the reader. Although the book is not morally and politically neutral because of some stands that I take and a selective huge review of issues and materials of which some are hard to come by, all the essential choices and solutions belong to the reader. Nothing is given on the platter let alone on the silver platter. It is readers manifesto. Therefore, the book is not an expose calling for a certain action or a collection of principles, programs and initiatives to be followed but rather a broad choice of issues, circumstances and aspects facilitating and promoting readers thinking processes and conclusions. Consequently, the readers task is immense and it amounts to a number of answers to a summarized question : How is it possible to inject into the world substantial does of change to see it a more harmonious, friendly and equitable place to live in .
