Age of Consent,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Age of Consent (Paperback)
This is a very optimistic book laying forth (as the author puts it) a manifesto for a new world order, and very plausible and inspiring it is as well. It informs you what things are wrong, unjust and a hindrance with globalisation and what stops it from working to the benefit of all, and then goes on to suggest ways to correct these faults and to realign international bodies and organizations so that justice and equality can be achieved. The ideas seem very well thought out and the book overall is very clear and well written. I've come away from similar books feeling very depressed with the state of the world, but with this I feel that change can really be achieved and that everyone will be a beneficiary. A very empowering feeling. If you liked this I highly recommend 'One No, Many Yeses' by Paul Kingsnorth, a brilliant look at small community movements.
