I am writing a new book about inequality. It will be written for the 99% in whose hands the fate of our nation lies.
We are in a hell of a mess in the US today. Our (ugh) President is unqualified for office and is a clear danger to the entire planet. He is unbalanced, unpredictable, shocking, self-absorbed, narcissistic, shallow, mean, confrontational, unfocused, power-obsessed, threatening, and lacking self-control.
This has encouraged a following of like-minded people. It is shocking how many there are and how proud they are of their support of him. They apparently know and care nothing about the Constitution, our democratic republic form of government, and have no brotherly love for their fellow citizens, let alone the rest of humanity. The poor have been demonized and are seen as an unfair burden on society.
I am writing this book because the prospects for a decent social future are dwindling as greed and its inevitable companion, a selfish, hard-hearted contempt for others, especially the poor, grows alarmingly. We are degenerating into a mean nation where there are two social classes, the wealthy 1%, and the other 99% whose labor is regarded as an unfortunate drain on prosperity.
History teaches that societal inequality grows until the masses can no longer abide their living conditions. At this breaking point a nation fails, and revolution occurs, led by a small, clever, power hungry segment of society, using the 99% as their military force.
This initiates another cycle of predation on the 99%, and social inequality continues to reign.
What can break this cycle and transform the society into a sustainable, fair-minded, egalitarian system? A successful revolution will require a new socioeconomic system designed to disempower the 1% and eliminate their hegemony permanently. This will only be possible if the 99% is shown how it can be accomplished and if the Stockholm Syndrome reality of their present servitude is revealed publicly and becomes well known.
