With a new epilogue about Bill Gates’s global agenda and how we
can resist the billionaires’ war on life
and malnutrition, an alarming refugee crisis, social unrest, and
economic polarization have become our lived reality as the top 1% of
the world’s seven-billion-plus population pushes the planet—and
all its people—to the social and ecological brink.
In Oneness vs. the
1%, Vandana Shiva takes on the Billionaires Club of Gates, Buffet,
and Zuckerberg, as well as other modern empires whose blindness to
the rights of people, and to the destructive impact of their
construct of linear progress, have wrought havoc across the world.
Their single-minded pursuit of profit has undemocratically enforced
uniformity and monocultures, division and separation, monopolies and
external control—over finance, food, energy, information,
healthcare, and even relationships.
Basing her analysis
on explosive, little-known facts, Shiva exposes the 1%’s model of
philanthrocapitalism, which is about deploying unaccountable money to
bypass democratic structures, derail diversity, and impose
totalitarian ideas based on One Science, One Agriculture, and One
History. She calls for the “resurgence of real knowledge, real
intelligence, real wealth, real work, real well-being,” so that
people can reclaim their right to: Live Free. Think Free. Breathe
Free. Eat Free.
