From the inside cover: "What does the future hold? Continuing productivity? Higher standards of living? Technological achievements beyond our wildest dreams? Or...the end of man?
If present trends continue unchecked, there may be no future for man but moral and physical annihilation.
In this critical book-which builds on ideas set forth in THE SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION and THE STEALING OF AMERICA- John Whitehead examines patterns of thought arising out of scientific determinism and examines patterns of thought arising out of scientific determiminism and advancing technology. Together these forces have eroded the tradtioonal view of man made in God's image and replaced it with a relativistic, dehumanized view. The result has been wholesale destruction of human life: 6 million Jews in Nazi concentration camps; 12 million peasants in Stalin's death camps; 18 million unborn babies in American abortuaries.
Now, at the end of the 20th century, two millennia since the birth of Christ, man faces the greatest threat ever: total annihilation. A new breed of death dealer is beginning to gain prominence. Eugenics is being promoted under the name 'biomedical ethics'; genocide is now called 'population planning'; abortifacient drugs are being readied for widespread distribution; and artificial intelligence threatens to overpower man himself, replacing human reasoning with electromechanical reactions.
How did we get into this mess? What can be done to stop the madness?"
