Oneness vs. the 1%: Shattering Illusions, Seeding Freedom Paperback – August 31, 2020
Enhance your purchase
With a new epilogue about Bill Gates’s global agenda and how we can resist the billionaires’ war on life
“This is what globalization looks like: Opportunism. Exploitation. Further centralization of power. Further disempowerment of ordinary people. . . . Vandana Shiva is an expert whose analysis has helped us understand this situation much more deeply.”―Russell Brand
Widespread poverty, social unrest, and economic polarization have become our lived reality as the top 1% of the world’s seven-billion-plus population pushes the planet―and all its people―to the social and ecological brink.
In Oneness vs. the 1%, Vandana Shiva takes on the billionaire dictators of Gates, Buffet, and Mark Zuckerberg, as well as other modern empires like Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Ag, whose blindness to the rights of people, and to the destructive impact of their construct of linear progress, have wrought havoc across the world. Their single-minded pursuit of profit has undemocratically enforced uniformity and monocultures, division and separation, monopolies and external control―over finance, food, energy, information, healthcare, and even relationships.
Basing her analysis on explosive facts, Shiva exposes the 1%’s model of philanthrocapitalism, which is about deploying unaccountable money to bypass democratic structures, derail diversity, and impose totalitarian ideas based on One Science, One Agriculture, and One History. Instead, Shiva calls for the resurgence of:
With these core goals, people can reclaim their right to: Live Free. Think Free. Breathe Free. Eat Free.

Shiva sets out your choices. Either act now to stop this latest attempt to assume control of governments and populations which has been a long time in the planning. Will future generations read this with the same horror and incredulity we feel when we read about the final solution and Nazi death camps of the last world war? Will they even have the chance to read or change anything? Like the ordinary people of those times, we have been hoodwinked and gradually brainwashed to “accept” the present situation as normal. We even talk of “the new normal” which so far is limited to distancing, lockdowns, worse than useless mask wearing, false testing and deliberate withholding of life saving treatments to sick people allowing them to die.
We are well on the way to a future of compliance and ever greater control by the 1%. . We must wake up now! Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it. Why then you may wonder are governments failing to represent the people who elected them? Why are unelected technocrats dictating government policy? Money buys power and influence. Morality and politics do not make good bedfellows. Shiva explains how the 1% have already assumed control. Please buy multiple copies of this book and give them as Christmas presents. instead of the usual gifts. Our future on this planet may depend on it.
