A must read, giving much insight and cause to ponder.
Earl van Amstel
I believe Richard offers an excellent vision on an important aspect of global transformation- the need for genuine, collaborative dialogue.
Carol Liane Brouillet
It is important to understand that most of us consider ourselves to be "elite" and therein lies the source of our problems.

Richard K. Moore fell down the rabbit hole less than fifteen years ago. His Silicon Valley position allowed him to host one of the oldest online discussion community groups at [...] The deterioration of the political system in the U.S. drove him to Ireland, but he continues to write, visit, and learn from the growing opposition to what he calls "The Matrix," that fabricated reality sold to Americans by the corporate press and politicians which has little correlation to the physical reality of those who bear the brunt of U.S and corporate policies.

I've known this stuff for years, and I know Richard, but I couldn't put the book down, once I started reading it. It very clearly, succinctly, paints a historical overview of the evolution of the system, and those who pull the strings and profit from war. Geopolitics, that game of control, domination over the world's resources is laid out, from World War I, World War II, to the bogus War on Terrorism, or the budding World War III, which many of us are trying to prevent.

The first half of the book is history and analysis, which few who have studied these subjects, would argue with. 9-11 and the Project for a New American Century, are not anomalies; there is a continuity, an extraordinary disregard for human life in the grand scheme of elite planning. While the reasoning and preparations for genocide might disturb some people, it is clear that the intent of the book is to thwart an agenda that enriches and empowers the few while devastating humanity and threatening the entire planet. The size of the problem needs to be grokked, before Richard addresses what he sees as the path for global transformation.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Laurence J. Victor on January 13, 2006
The Big Picture context for our Crisis of Crises is impossible to introduce in a single book, but Richard Moore's "Escaping the Matrix" is a masterful attempt. He is not afraid to cite deception and conspiracy as the foundation of modern economies and governments. He briefly sketches the emergence of humankind and the partnership and dominator models of society. He outlines many forces and actions being taken by those who oppose the dominator model and proposes a "harmonization" process that could lead to peace and sustainable living. This book is highly recommended for those who need a brief introduction to the realities behind The Matrix, as well as those already knowledgeable of much of what is happening who will gain some new insights. The text could well serve as an outline for expanded dialog.

I find Moore to be deeply analytical and original, not just reporting facts or giving a word-smith opinion.

In this new book, one gets a good look at how the actual political world works at the highest levels, and how the matrix of unreality is formed for us. And then going further after outlining the reality, Moore gives his solutions to this encompassing matrix.

A must read, giving much insight and cause to ponder. I can truthfully say that Moore's insights into the matrix have influenced my own thinking and approach a great deal.

I have a small basket of the most valuable tools and books that I refer back to and share with others who are looking to fit the pieces of the puzzle together. Escaping The Matrix is my newest addition, for which I am most grateful to the author Richard Moore.

Once I read the first page and sensed the pace wasn't slowing, I drank it down in big gulps. I was delighted by the clarity and rapid fire presentation of information, and his linking of the pieces to make the point - that we live in a world quite different from the one suggested to us by the corporate dominated media machine.

I can't praise highly enough, the synthesis of knowledge about the development of our human history and what we can now reasonably assume (based on present wisdom, research, and widely accepted facts) is the real world. That our society is being manipulated and managed by a few elite rulers is a hard pill to swallow when we are deeply embedded in the Matrix view, but we are stepped through the facts until it's obviousness is undeniable. The bibliography and list of resources at the back of the book, offers a plethora of excellent material to help you if you doubt this proposition. And understanding it is a helpful pre-requisite to the second half of the book which deals with some possible responses and discusses how we might become part of the solution - now that the problem is overwhelmingly clear.

If not as thrilling and liberating as peeling away the layers of illusion about the situation we are presently in, the second part has prompted me to go and search out more information, and some of what I have found excites me.

This book has jumped to the top of the transpartisan list. Together with All Rise and several of the other books on that list, it is an actionable practical formula for restoring the Republic and then spreading participatory democracy and moral capitalism--communal localized capitalism--to the rest of the world in a non-violent information-driven manner.

The "matrix" is the virtual unreality that governments and their corporately-owned media have manufactured to distract, imprison, enslave, and manipulate the majority of the public into dropping out of politics and failing to exercise their right to think, debate, vote, and oversee their representatives. I completely agree with Ron Paul when he says we need to dismantle this insolvent corrupt mess of a government, and reconfigure ourselves back to a Republic of, by, and for We the People.

Key themes in this world interconnectedness instead of separation; community sovereignty instead of federal sovereignty, distributed economics (no absentee landlords) instead of concentrated wealth, transformation and harmonization instead of adversarial, common sense judgments instead of special interest judgments, and finally, the reconstruction of social will to completely overpower, in a non-violent manner, the class war and globalized predatory looting of the commons that the central bankers have wrought on the planet.

This non-violent social transformation, according to the author, includes local empowerment, human liberation, participatory democracy, sensible economics, and cooperation on a global scale for mutual benefit of all.

The elite is fighting back, repressing dissent, even fully-funded logical dissent.
