What should society’s appropriate response be to: 1) Pathological greed 2) An economic coup d’etes of America 3) An Oedipal Oil War against Mother Nature and all its "collateral damage" 3) Millions of extinct species and vanishing rainforests 4) The genocide of non-Western civilization and ancient ways of life all in the name of profit 5) Nazi Capitalism -- a few rotten eggs exploiting the Capitalist system Tear Down this Wall Street is the story of the world Capitalists have built for us, how things came to be this way and what, if anything, we can do about it. Veera shines an unorthodox light on many things you thought you knew about Western Civilization, and a few you probably didn’t. Capitalism has claimed it’s "our way or the highway" for too long now, mercilessly slaughtering every civilization in its path for the past 500 years. Is Capitalism the real Thousand Year Reich? Hardly. Today, civilization approaches a dead end on the road we’ve been herded down. The Capitalist system may collapse under the weight of its own pyramid schemes, be finished off by the end of cheap oil, or end when People wake up -- as we’re beginning to right now. Social evolution, more than revolution, may already be underway. It started on the first day our Unemployed People’s Army occupied Wall Street, the World Capitol of Capitalism. What happens next is up to us. The lessons Veera teaches us here are ones we should already know from history, but have forgotten. Understanding them now will prove crucial over the next few pivotal years. Publisher's Note: 20% of the proceeds from this book will benefit Occupy Wall Street when purchased directly from the publisher.
