The New Human Rights Movement
- Reinventing the Economy to End Oppression
- By: Peter Joseph
- Narrated by: Peter Joseph
- Length: 13 hrs and 51 mins
In our interconnected world, self-interest and social interest are rapidly becoming indistinguishable. If current negative trajectories remain, including growing climate destabilization, biodiversity loss, and economic inequality, an impending future of ecological collapse and societal destabilization will make "personal success" virtually meaningless. Yet our broken social system incentivizes behavior that will only make our problems worse.
Highly recommend everyone to read this book !!!

Catharsis by way of Logic.
What made the experience of listening to The New Human Rights Movement the most enjoyable?
Listening to this (too lazy to read), was a cathartic exercise. A must read for the disaffected, disillusioned and dissatisfied during these tumultuous times. Thanks to his years of exhaustive research, this comprehensive breakdown of the current "economy" outlines the contradictions of capitalism and suggests ways to bring about open-source thinking. This type of material seems to act as anxiety relief for me personally in a time of uncertainty, or, for the uninitiated, a slap in the face of all you thought you knew.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The book contains some personal anecdotes by the author which help paint a picture of his connection with socioeconomic concern. An interesting look at a sane individual in this mad world (in my opinion).
Any additional comments?
Well worth the money considering it goes toward the important goal of the biggest economic change in human history. From the "Free Market" as we know it, to a post-scarcity society and a true democracy.
