Today's leaders and those in power will cold-shoulder the principles advocated in this book. They will mock Satish Kumar as being an idealist, pronouncing him as someone who needs to "get real". Yet, as Satish asks, what have the realists achieved? Millions dead in wars. Millions dying of hunger and starvation, et al. How can we stop the rot? Satish calls for benevolent individuals and organisations such as Friends Of The Earth, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Medecins San Frontieres, etc., to come together and form a strong movement for change and transformation. Let the ayes have it! For the present, get this book and realise there can be a turn-about in policy for this afflicted world.
