What is it like to live under a tyranny of psychopaths?
The cost of living is radically increasing, personal income decreasing, and people are falling out of the economy – from unskilled labor to professionals. Jobs are disappearing and everyone is buried in debt. All the money has been sucked out of the economy by the ultra-rich. Social turmoil is on the rise and battles with the national security forces are common. There’s the sense that everything is disintegrating.
Is there a way forward? Yes!
These people found a way. Who are they? Sam is a computer engineer who was laid off but makes a new life for himself and his family. Ruth is a public school teacher whose school is closed but she continues to believe in and work for an evolutionary leap in human development. Hugo is a young man who abandons his
college education because of the overwhelming debt and joins the anarchists. Everett is the son of a mega bank owner who decides he must destroy the economic system. Cedric is a man who joins the Army and goes to war in the Middle East; and when he returns, he takes up the cause of local activists. And Howard is the brother of a televangelist who goes on a quest for answers to tough questions. Each one finds his or her way to a place called Occutopia where the Occupy movement has taken up residence in an empty high school in Portland, Oregon. And there, those who have fallen out of the economic system come together to organize and create a better world. They take the beginning steps toward addressing the root cause of the overwhelming problems we face – the tyranny of psychopaths.
We are living in a time…
…when psychopaths have risen to power in all corporations, governments, and institutions. They are hell-bent on consuming resources at an unsustainable pace, on endless war, and debt slavery. And they are taking our world down a path to destruction. Is there anything we can do about it? Yes. We’re going to have to hit the reset button. How? For the answer to that question, I invite you to read the book, The Tyranny of Psychopaths, a Satire. Please check out the pages on this website and the book page.
