This book draws on the author?s four decades of study and writing about the relationship between astro-cycles, world affairs and human behaviour, while practising Buddhism to discipline his motivation. It completes a quartet of astrology books. The first two introduce astrology?s workings and its potential to clarify decisions in the modern world. A third, published in 2009, shows that astro-cycles reveal the intrinsic shortcomings of the world economy.

?Reversing the Race to Global Destruction? takes account of what has happened since 2009 against the astro-cycles immediately ahead. Can the present world economic and socio/political systems manage our affairs, without increasing economic uncertainty, conflict and ultimate collapse?

Part one of the book uses astro-cycles to assess and describe the inadequacy of post-2008 attempts to sustain our present world economy. The apparent recovery for some is based on borrowed time that is fast running out. Why do an increasing number of people feel side-lined, many are desperate and hardly able to survive? Does existence have to be no more than a constant aspiration to grow and consume? Has it always been like this? Are the media, political, academic systems and the laws, rules and regulations that support this ever-expanding materialistic society shutting out better workable alternatives?

Part Two of the book identifies a Golden Standard based on unshakeable principles of kindness, before all other considerations. It then looks again at how business, media, political, academic, and the practice of law would be enhanced and made more effective if guided uncompromisingly by such standards. This builds to a vision of a world that takes down barriers and people work together for the benefit of everyone; the very opposite to the way of the world of early 2017.

This book is a seed or contribution to the many movements of healing human relationships that must emerge, if the world is to survive and move on from dark messages of fanaticism, greed and selfishness that threaten our planet and our lives upon it.

'What you do not wish for yourself do not do to others - Confucius'
'The freedom of all is essential to my freedom'
'Borders do not protect. Border areas are the unhappiest places on earth.'
Astro-events enable us to step outside contemporary assumptions and see underlying trends'
'Abandoning the politics of greed is not only the way to personal happiness, but to a truly efficient world economy.'
'Happiness and security do not come from things, but from a world where our actions and economic, legal, scientific, educational, political and media systems are all motivated by principled kindness towards each other and the planet.'
'...hold to the Golden Standard principles explained in Chapter 8, with all our being, uncompromisingly, every moment. Accept that nothing is certain, except that real improvement comes only when everything we feel, think and do is founded upon that unshakable Golden Standard principle. Also, real change requires ongoing correction; including reconsideration and purification of the corrections already made. For real change comes when we are clear about principles and use them constantly to clarify and correct actions. This process takes time but, when approached like this, the reassuring joy of fully resolving issues increases exponentially.
