Overcoming Modern Confusion calls for a conscious and proper exercise of consistency to systematize the process of making choices so that better decisions can be made to improve social norms and life in general. Adolfo Critto brings together the suggestions of scholars in nearly every discipline, to propose the best possible method for integrating a consistency model. He proposes a process of freely shaping thoughts, desires, decisions, and actions in accordance with an overarching system of reality to successfully achieve human development and fulfillment. Critto also warns against potential misuses of consistency, citing cases from the past. Overall, he encourages the building of broad, consistent frameworks that reflect the all-encompassing system of reality, stressing the integration of findings by various groups to advance the highest quality of information from research, and leading to the most accurate decision-making.
