With startling clarity and force, this cutting-edge book details innumerable disastrous global trends, which together result in oppression of the many by the few, the 99% by the 1%. The author, an ordained minister and long-time social justice and peace activist, draws together these many “faces of death” under the rubric of exclusionary and entrenched power, exercised by a very few people for their own benefit, locking out almost everyone else. This extraordinary power is exercised by the world’s elite through collusion by four powerful institutions: government (including the military), corporations, education, and media. Eisenhower’s frightening warning has become actualized, on steroids. Together, this “Quabal” effectively controls almost all facets of our lives, obscenely enriching the elite while impoverishing the many. Extreme and world-wide maldistribution of wealth and power have now precipitated a breaking point. Revolution against oppression is emerging, in different forms, on a global scale. Examining the history of change movements, Ransom concludes that the world’s 99% can indeed control the direction and outcome of the inevitable revolution. And he issues a surprising call for revolutionary prophetic leadership, inviting consideration of common principles upon which all peoples might begin to realize the emergence of a world of peace.
