The Moral Society
A Rational Alternative to Death
By John David Garcia
About The Book
THE HUMAN RACE IS ON THE VERGE OF SUICIDE! Unless man chooses to fight for his continued evolution he is doomed to extinction as a species. In The Moral Society, John David Garcia presents a revolutionary ethical theory much in the spirit of Spinoza and Teilhard de Chardin.
The concept of ethics is made operational and developed on a purely rational basis without sentimentality or ideology. The Moral Society unifies ethics, art, science, technology, evolution and souci-political action and shows that through ethical development man can achieve far more than advocates of supernatural utopias ever imagined.
A rational alternative to death is presented in the form of a comprehensive political and social program. Every significant contemporary issue is analyzed -- nuclear annihilation, environmental pollution, overpopulation, genetic decay, racism, educational inadequacies, the role of women, bureaucratic stagnation, etc. No compromise is made with popular prejudice.
John David Garcia shows that evolution and ethics are intertwined. The Moral Society is a lucidly written work of science and philosophy. The conclusions are far-reaching and this may be the final call to action to all those who value humanity.
