His crucial revelation is how this cultural sector, though manipulated and diverted as much as possible by economic and political interests (I'll call it "buying lying and denying"), is still able to exert the greatest influence of the three, when properly worked with. Lincoln's assertion that "right makes might" falls into this category.
As a historical note I would add that in the evolution of human consciousness we have reached the place where the old institutions of culture and values are no longer effective, and the effectiveness of culture as a guide to healthy societies depends on individual conscience. That is what Perlas himself has shown, as recognized by his being awarded the "Right Livelihood" Prize from Sweden, sometimes call "the alternative Nobel Prize."
Anyone who aspires to understand and to help improve society at any level will be inspired and empowered by the book.
