Whatever one wants to call whatever takes its place, it is the inhumanity, even murderous criminal insanity of the totally materialist and mindless capitalist system that we are living through right now. Those of us who merely try to make it a bit less monstrous, are more acquiescent to its continuance, than to its being replaced with something more intelligently human.

Recommend for clear and simple analysis of the basics of capital function and its dire need to be all-engulfing and all-overwhelming:
"THE ENEMY OF NATURE - THE END OF CAPITALISM OR THE END OF THE WORLD", by JOEL KOVEL, 2002.

For capitalism's post-WWII human destruction techniques:
"CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN - HOW THE U.S. USES GLOBALIZATION TO CHEAT POOR COUNTRIES OUT OF TRILLIONS", by JOHN PERKINS, 2004

For recent perfidy in the world of mega (Capitalist) finance taking homicidal advantage of defenseless small nations especially during natural disasters:
"THE SHOCK DOCTRINE – THE RISE OF DISASTER CAPITALISM" by NAOMI KLEIN, 2007

For understanding what is fomenting within impoverished "majority society" and not just as we in the affluent "minority society" perceive the masses of our trashed brothers and sisters: "GRASSROOTS POSTMODERNISM - REMAKING THE SOIL OF CULTURES" by GUSTAVO ESTEVA and MADHU SURI PRAKASH, though published in 1998 - largely unnoticed in our 'minority society'.

(Don't be but off by the academic sounding titles of these four works - they are each poignantly penetrating and heartfelt in tone with text relating to real human experience.)

This then is your journalist-historian's offering:
A Four Book Course For Extricating Oneself From Complicity In Capitalist Crimes.
A particular tacking of the sails within today's oceans of despair?

The United States, already controlling half the resources of the planet, is compelled to continue machinations and murderous violence to increase that present ownership under the mindless drive of accumulated capital growth for immediate highest
returns on 'investment', and as an sociopolitical entity out of any sane control, is quite simply unable to reflect accountable consideration of human cost and ecological consequences.

There is however hope!
Read John Maynard Keynes describing our coming era in
"The Economic Possibilities of Our Grandchildren":

"In this millennium, wealth will no longer be of social import, morals will change, and we shall be able to rid ourselves of the pseudo-moral principles which have hag-ridden us for two hundred years, by which we have exalted some of the most distasteful of human qualities into the position of the highest virtues. We will be able to dare to assess the money motive at its true value.
 
The love of money as a possession - as distinguished from love of money as a means to the enjoyments and realities of life - will be recognized for what it is, a somewhat disgusting morbidity, one of those semi-criminal, semi-pathological propensities, which one hands over with a shudder to the specialists in MENTAL DISEASE."

Demand sanity! Ask that private ownership of the globe be recognized as a delusion.

Your reader appreciative,
Jay Janson, servidor
