An amazing collection of thinkers from around the world.

I’ve often said that actions which grow out of love have the most power … This powerful book brings together both classic and new works which will help empower future generations.

Oscar Lopez Rivera, Puerto Rican former political prisoner: “Mandela of the Americas”


This is a book you will want to keep readily accessible as we all struggle through these most challenging of times. This is a book you will want to share with others.

This book should awaken everyone to the call for action in the struggle to birth a just new world. We either act now in solidarity or descend deeper into the pit of barbarism.
