Vo. 1     Leave the Rat Race to the Rats   

America boasts about its grand quality of life while the ghettos wallow in despair and neglect. The residents of these poor black ghettoes must  put up with conditions such as  inferior education, slave wage jobs, high unemployment, no health insurance, high crime rate , unjust  hostile policing, political impotency. My book, “Leave the Rat Race to the Rats”, is a blueprint for transforming the dismal American ghettos  by abandoning the rat race culture for the goodwillism of the goodwill revolution.  For example, we are told that education and hard work is the way to achieve the American dream. But, not in the ghetto. Instead, rat race education reinforces feelings of inferiority and makes dropping out seem very attractive. With the highest unemployment in the land and with most jobs in the ghetto  failing to provide a living wage, permanent employment, benefits and security, too many workers lose hope, their dignity and self-esteem.

Vol. 2  Tackling Crime and Policing in the Ghetto

The greed and the ruthlessness of the rat race serve as a catalyst for crime. Crime is a major factor for the misery of ghetto life. Ghetto residents live in fear of criminals. They live in fear of gangs. They live in fear of police brutality, ranging from beatings to  murders of innocent unarmed people. The Goodwill Revolution to the rescue. Goodwillism is a term for the principles of the Goodwill Revolution. So, goodwillism will do the impossible. It will resuscitate, reinforce and mobilize the inherent goodness of the residents, so that  combined with a good dose of common sense, in the ghetto:

  • Criminality will decline
  • Recidivism will decline
  • Black-on-black crime will becomes black pride
  • Gangs will choose to do good instead of evil
  • Ex-cons will embrace real rehabilitation
  • Instead of the hostility, arrogance, brutality and abuse of power, the police will fulfil their role as protectors and so earn the trust, cooperation and respect of the ghetto community.

Vol. 3 Overcoming Political Impotence in the Ghetto  

Let’s be brutally honest. The rat race has been catastrophic. Our American democracy is in shambles. This is no accident, but is the result of a deliberate calculated plan by our un-elected  rulers, the 1% richest people in America. They dictate to us, the hapless 99%.  So, instead of government of the people, by the people, for the people,  we have government of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1%. Because of this 1%, Americans are suffering from  ED (election dysfunction) resulting in political impotence.  The Goodwill Revolution is the political Viagra that will restore their potency. Political impotency is at its worst in the ghetto.  Too long the ghetto has been ignored and forsaken because of this. By rejecting the rat race and adopting  goodwillism we will mobilize the ghetto and change that completely. “Overcoming Political Impotence in the Ghetto With Goodwillism” will show us:

  1. How to take stock of the existing situation
  2. How to recognize, identify and cope with our enemies
  3. The importance of political power
  4. Political and economic strategies to overcome political impotence
  5. How to turn apathy into activism
