Beginning with the most fundamental human needs that include a sense of self, communication with the outside world, and the development of libido, this discourse sets forth a methodology for creating a society with the fulfillment of these human needs as its primary tenet. Employing a unique combination of psychoanalytic insight and political foresight, this work suggests that humankind is no longer in charge of its destiny. Citing examples such as society's desire for peace and its simultaneous engagement in wars, this analysis relates the unconscious processes of the mind to the pathologies of societies and subsequently outlines a blueprint for a more sane society.

Synopsis:

Humankind appears to be no longer in charge of its destiny. People want peace but do not cease to make wars; they want freedom but submit to tyrants and politicians who promote the interests of their own class and impose them upon the public in the name of democracy. People want prosperity, but 80 per cent of the world's population lives in poverty. Our "schizophrenic" species is torn between the desire for love and friendship while overwhelmed by hatreds and aggression which afflict not only individuals but societies and cultures. Tribes, nations and religions have for a long time been engaged in killing each other, but now our powers of destruction have increased a thousandfold with the development of science and technology which have cosmic forces of nuclear energy and biochemically manufactured bacteria at their command, and are able to annihilate untold millions of their fellow humans and are well on the way to destroying the life-supporting system of this planet.
