I don’t’ typically write reviews, but I needed to get the strong feelings this book generated off my chest – not to mention my wasted money. I spend much time trying to educate myself on issues of the day. I do it to protect my investments that support my family and me. Given same, I thought it important to read this book given that the author believes that we will be facing some serious changes in the future. I was interested to know why he thought that and what his reasoning was.
I thought the first part of the book was interesting and in fairness, there were some good facts early on.
However, it quickly becomes obvious that this book is strictly written to sell the hyper-liberal position on Global warming, anti-corporatism, profit hate, etc.
This writer, comes very close to endorsing the writings of Karl Marx and goes on to basically say we all need to do is stop having kids, stop driving cars, stop flying in planes, forget about TV’s, iPods, iPads, make real good friends with our immediate neighbors and grow vegetable gardens – basically go back to the pre-industrial age. He recommends we check out communes with 50 people trying to make a go of it out in nature – that sounds great! He loves unlimited money printing and loves all kinds of different paper and fiat money. Not real money, not money that has intrinsic value, but lots and lots of depreciating money and lots of political promises.
Mr. Author, you must somehow be related to Paul Krugman? If not, you two must meet – it would be love at first sight.
Once we all go back to the Stone Age and fight his revolution and make all the bad people go away, I guess since he’s so smart and wrote a book, that he’d tell us he’s going to be in charge, sort of like Lenin in 1917. Sorry, we know how that turns out. Not buying what this guy is selling – a con.
As a conservative and not knowing who the author was or where she was coming from when I bought the book, I was afraid at the begining it was all going to be all progressive propaganda. After listening to the entire book, she makes good points on what to look for as a government leans towards facism. Overall it is interesting, but not to much new here.
What a waste of my time. I listened and listened hoping to learn something or finally get it. It's just people talking on and on. I'm angry I got stuck with it. Who are these other reviewers? Must be some kind of artistic outliers. Awful!
Very very exciting and interesting for anyone who may want to follow in the footsteps of these guys. Motivating and fun.
