About the Book

This is a book about the social, political, philosophical, religious, and economic presuppositions we have believed to be inherent truths that we are now discovering were built on geo-ecological flaws. We are being faced with an existential threat. There is the possibility of human extinction. And unlike threats in the past to all forms of life on the planet, this one will not be determined by a random meteorite/asteroid or natural planetary happening. It will be self-inflicted. We are that species. Where have we all gone wrong? Could it be that certain elements in our thought process laboriously pieced together from the beginning of our bronze/iron/agricultural age are now working against us? And if so, what are those elements? Finally, the question is, How could we, the most clever and brilliant primate ever to evolve, be bringing this on ourselves? Is it that we have an evolutionary self-destructive neurotic/psychotic cranial imperfection? And if this is the reason, at what stage of our evolution did that imperfection occur? Finally, do you and I biologically/psychologically/neurologically have the ability to move away from that imperfection?

About the Author

David is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the University of Hawaii (Harvard Asia Pacific) Advanced Management Program. Over his career he was an international risk manager and senior executive at several of America’s premier multinational institutions. During that period he became increasingly aware of the underlying cultural and institutional causes of past and present civilizational dysfunction and conflict. In his writings he brings together a wide range of interests; namely history, evolutionary anthropology, theology, philosophy, geopolitics and economics. His first book Holy War The Blood of Abraham was published in 2004. It explored the underlying religious forces driving today's Jewish/Christian/Islamic conflict. The Infidels, a second book centering on Islam, was published two years later. David's interest then turned to those underlying societal images that during the George W Bush presidency were directing not only the American political process but also the future of Western civilization. He wrote his third book "Q" Question Will Human Species Survive? Over the past ten years he has been writing OVERCOMING THE THREAT TO OUR FUTURE. It calls for a radically different understanding of the relationship between Homo sapiens and Planet earth and the cosmos. It challenges the implicit ecological legitimacy of the political, social, religious, and economic institutions on which our society is now grounded. It calls for a new understanding of our relationship to Planet earth and the cosmos. In his new book David gives the reader an opportunity to participate in this great event.
