From the Back Cover
Written by activist playwright and producer D.R. Thompson, A World Without War is a compilation of his essays originally published on the WebDelSol media complex. During that time Thompson chronicled the U.S. and world situation post 9/11, looking at society and politics through the lens of a cultural critic schooled (at times self-taught) in an eclectic array of disciplines: film criticism, technology, the arts, history, business and philosophy. The result is a viewpoint that is at once unique, insightful and thought-provoking.
If you're open to changing your opinion, Thompson just might sway you. If not, he can help start a conversation on topics not often discussed or explored. His style is at times confrontation, his wit at times acerbic. While you shouldn't be surprised if he outrages or angers you, bear in mind that underlying all of the material are these questions: How can we create a better world? How can we create a more free, peaceful and prosperous world? How can we create A World Without War? These questions, Thompson feels, are ones we should all be asking. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

An intelligent observer, astute, aware visionary, Thompson could see and predict where the world is going through when exploitation of nature and humanity lead to a depleted and depressive world. I went from despair to holistic change myself through an individual and universal, evolutionary journey, - from affliction and misery to peaceful serenity.
I never understood the pleasure of exploiting or profiting from other human beings via religion, business or politics. Idolatry = blind obedience, - so sad, so mad, so sick.
Our world is based on depleted values. What is wealth? Accumulation of goods, poisoning minds, air, waters, animal abuses? What a loss! A quote from the book that sticks: "fuel economic growth by fighting the very ills we have created, mostly environmental, yet another is to fight illnesses (either real or created) for the body and mind i.e. pharmaceuticals and biotechnological."
Don't think for a second that this reading is boring. It's profound, a sizzling call for integrity, and links to larger-than-life iconographic movies that illustrate our blind spots. Yes, fictitious characters of the Seventh Art reflect our most actual, psychological challenges. Are you an agent of change?
