Excerpt from Introduction:

“As a collective, we never really made the leap into freedom. We have been in the grip of hierarchical forms of government for thousands of years, because of our deep-rooted fear of being unable to handle the unknown—formlessness—and because we have been equating freedom with brutality and the rule of the fittest. For the same reason we have destroyed other healthier forms of government. It is time for making this leap, and if we have the courage to dwell in the unknown of what is next, the new form will emerge more readily and it will most likely be a healthier form, rather than a twisted version of the old form.”
