This book is the result of my reflections, travels and a search for the cause of humanity’s poor life on earth. I wrote it with compassion for my fellow men and I hope it acts as an eye-opener. I have come to the conclusion if Money is not the root of all evil it assuredly is an excellent means to divide us, to make us compete with one another and develop selfishness, classes and wars. Evil or not, we have gotten so accustomed to living with it, imagining life without money is not easy to do.
Nevertheless, one has to remember everything starts with an idea, and this idea of a free world has to travel from mind to mind until enough men and women agree to mature towards Utopia.
When this society will be achieved, it will be the resurrection of humanity because to change the set up of life it’s to change life itself. To change life is to change man and to change man is to change the world
