  A Prophetic American Voice provides a Blueprint for Citizens to              Restore Their Power and Diminish the Influence of Corporations and         Financial  Institutions and Create a Just and Life-Affirming Society

America’s Future: Requiem or Renaissance? An Agenda for the Transformation of Our Nation and Ourselves, a new book by Bernard Gluckstern, has just been released by RoseDog Books.

In America’s Future: Requiem or Renaissance? An Agenda for the Transformation of Our Nation and Ourselves, Bernard Gluckstern has articulated both a vision and a strategic approach to its implementation. He explores the various tactics and mechanisms which those at the summit of our financial pyramid deploy to ensure that we remain a society that is exhausted, apprehensive, and in conflict, as the result of our deteriorating financial circumstances. His antidote to these afflictions is contained in a comprehensive plan of action that rewards ethical business enterprises and compels mammoth companies to reform their negative behaviors or face extinction. These objectives can be achieved by citizens who will no longer permit the current injustices.

“At its core this book is a humanistic appeal for sanity in a world where the playing field has grown increasingly inequitable. The premise is Great Power Heal Thyself, in other words as American citizens we have the capacity to reform our country, first of all and the “spread effects” could be enormous. The U.S. could rightfully reclaim the global respect it once had as the model of a true functioning democracy.” Edward C. Green, Ph.D. Director, The New Paradigm Fund
