Like skyscrapers of modern day built on engineering principles perfected in years past, our social systems are constructed on an ideological footing developed and honed over time. Yet unlike the tall, inspiring physical structures that dominate our skylines and can withstand even natural disaster, the philosophical foundation of our societies is unsafe and teetering toward collapse.
Humankind has developed its societies with one concept at their core: control. This idea – that we are in control – dominates our lives from birth and is inculcated in us at every turn. We crave control so much that we have become completely blind to its fallacy while doubling down on it over and again as the underpinning for our entire world. And therein lies the issue.
The General Theory looks at our behavior in a new light, emphasizing how much we want control and empirically proving that it is altogether unattainable. Elegant and naïve, brilliant and crude – the story of mankind’s love affair with control will shock you while providing an understanding of the world as never before. Everything will be different and everything will finally make sense.
The General Theory will change our world forever.
