It gives me great pleasure to announce the publication of my latest book, “The Democracy Delusion: How to Restore True Democracy and Stop Being Duped.”
You need look no further than the increasing earnings differential and widening wealth gap to see that the ethos of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” has somehow been lost and that democracy is failing. With that failure we are in danger of losing the gains of the past 200 plus years and, if things continue along their current path, risk a second revolution. With the advances in technology and our massively enhanced destructive capabilities, who knows what price we would have to pay for that in terms of both devastation and loss of life? Thus it seems obvious that we should take steps to avoid such extreme outcomes.
We cannot do so, however, if we continue with our present forms of governance.
