I'm sorry, Mr. (Mrs?) Asher. I appreciate that this book was won in a goodreads.com contest, but I can find nothing good to say about it. 115 pages of poorly-researched, mostly-nonsense complaints followed by a brief 10 paragraphs of "solution" which I can sum up in a single sentence: Start a new country.<br /><br />If you have such enmity with your siblings you should (wo)man up and deal with it instead of using a pseudonym to slander them anonymously.

He doesn't pick on any one side of the political scale, and he has something to say of almost everything.

B. Regan Asher had a few well thought out ideas that I enjoyed, along with a few that I thought were rather silly. This book should have been entitled "The World Sucks Because We Suck." Honor isn't as common today like it once was. We don't trust our leaders. We are the only ones that can change our reality. Its a call to do better, be better.
