Through historical accounts and dialectical analysis the book offers the argument that a fear culture, US hegemony, and the globalization of capital are intertwined and interdependent. In the twenty-first century these three strands of history are leading to world systemic destabilization, and they are leading to a future political economy that is fascistic. Nonetheless, the book ends with a glimmer of hope that within current conditions of chaos a new world might be built based on real democracy and freedom."@en ;
