The author explores human behaviour in a holistic manner examining its intertwined components such as violence, the mechanisms of terror and fear, globalisation of poverty, conflict and war, economic growth, competition, property rights and their built-in violence, capital flows and the monetary system, religions and their impact on human behaviour, the roots of ageing and death, animal liberation and vegetarianism, birth control and the banality of violence. All of this through the lens of his own life experiences and knowledge. Despite unimaginable technological progress, human behaviour has in fact not evolved, or barely, since mankind has appeared. In the process he uncovers a mechanism of wealth transfer from third world countries towards the developed nations through invisible commodity price fixation mechanisms and procedures. As a result, he calls for the advent of a fraternity and solidarity revolution, a world where personal sponsorship for our future generations would play a major role in re-establishing the balances between the haves and the have-nots where three quarters of humanity would improve their living standards where nature would cease to be raped for short term profits and cruelty would end. The essay was written many months before the September 11 events, the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York and the attack on the Pentagon, and subsequent terrorist bombings in Indonesia and elsewhere. In the current circumstances, the themes examined are extremely topical and the recommendations could prove useful for the long-term resolutions of current affair issues, whereby a stressing permanent feeling of insecurity worldwide has emerged and deeply established itself across all boundaries. A radical change in the way we view our fellow human beings, the fauna and flora or more generally our living environment is required. This edition includes a new postscriptum from the author, March 2016.
