This new and compelling book by Harrie Salman is a manifesto in which he analyzes the ills of our times, calls out those persons and institutions he sees as responsible for those ills, and issues a call to action. He addresses that call to action to all of us who believe that individuals and groups working together can renew and liberate our society. He calls on us to become fully human and enrich our social lives—impoverished by the lockdowns of what he calls "the health dictatorship"—from the bottom up, with inspiration from the Divine. It is a noble call, and Harrie is quite aware that the tasks he outlines will not be easily accomplished.
Today, however, to take a stand for humanity is nothing less than a radical act of rebellion, of defiance, against a veritable blitzkrieg of dehumanizing technologies that are assaulting all human beings—in body, soul, mind and, most of all, spirit. From synthetic biology to geoengineering to universal covert and overt surveillance of everyone and everything, we human beings, all around the globe, are moving, like it or not, into a very Brave New World.
Harrie Salman presents a way out of a tragically polarized situation, in which people find themselves on one side or another believing that those on the other side have been "brainwashed." He coolly and succinctly identifies the pieces of the puzzle and puts them together in a coherent pattern that anyone, of any political persuasion, can recognize. –From the Preface by Ed Conroy
