There are plenty of books in this world which will tell you what is wrong with this world. There are fewer books which will tell you what needs to be done to save it and our civilisation from self-destruction. And there are few indeed which tell you exactly how to go about achieving a sweeping overhaul of an entire society.
This little Manifesto is the result of four years of discussion by a group of students reading for their undergraduate degrees at the ancient and elite University of St. Andrews. It is the distillation of the main recommendations of a five hundred thousand word book manuscript called Freeing Growth: Volume 1 which assumes that if we are screwed as the evidence would suggest, then an authoritarian regime is highly likely to be enacted by a panicking population as billions starve, floods of refugees hit our shores, and the price of oil, fresh water and raw materials skyrocket.
If an authoritarian regime is therefore likely inevitable, we asked what is the best form of authoritarianism? What measures would deliver rapid, long term sustainable economic growth? Who should be allowed civil liberties and who ought to be repressed? How do we go about restoring our relationship with God to the centre of our economy? What should be done about the old? Indeed, what should be done about the children?
This Manifesto presents an integrated, holistic, and technology centred set of proposals based on non-orthodox financial systems. It is provided, as close to at cost as possible, to anyone interested.
Available in two sizes of paperback (US Trade and Pocket) from all major international outlets and from all major eBook retailers including Kindler, iPadr, Nookr and the Aldiko app for Androidr.
Twelve-year-old Dahlia has always lived at Silverton Manor-having spent fifty years as its resident ghost. When Oliver Day and his family show up as house-sitters the day Mrs. Tibbs, a Liberator sent by the Spectral Investigative Council, arrives to teach Dahlia the proper rules for ghosting, Dahlia can't wait to make new friends. But the unscrupulous ghost hunter, Rank Wiley, and the crooked town councilman, Jock Rutabartle, plan to rid Silverton Manor of its ghosts and sell it to the highest bidder. With her home and friendships at stake Dahlia may have to break the rules of ghosting as quickly as she learns them to solve the mystery of her death and save the manor. Equal parts charming and eerie, this ghostly caper hits all the right notes for the middle-grade audience.
