Bernie Sanders in his recent primary presidential campaign, proposed that a universal health care system should be publicly funded, as also should be university education. A strong philosophic argument can be made in support of both these ideas.

Unfortunately, the manner in which such conceptually sound proposals would need to be implemented and financed in order to be “successful” are well outside the realm of current thinking.

That is the main thesis of this book. It discusses the evolutionary forces responsible for the manner in which governance and the economy have come to function, why these functioning’s necessarily produce the unsatisfactory outcomes that plague us today, and the nature of the fundamental changes, now made feasible by modern technology, that are required to set us on a new and more successful evolutionary path. Only in this way, as informed by my real life experiences and related in this book, can desirable outcomes such as proposed by Bernie Sanders, actually be successfully achieved.
