Book Description: Why are millions disgusted with our political parties? Did the huge explosion in the federal building in Oklahoma City make any sense? We wait nervously for another school shooting. What's next?America is changing so fast that laws and culture are almost meaningless.Escape from Time is the story of how we are divorcing the past. We are rid of the worst and the best of our inherited culture. We are what no other country has ever been.Culture--laws, religion, the "story of America"--belong to the immigrants who came looking for a future.Those immigrants are history. They lived for the future. We live for "right now." Past and future are not our psychological radar. We live by impulse. If it feelsright, it isright.We don't understand our culture, certainly not our laws and institutions. These relics manufacture "crimes" from what we call everday life, and we can't build enough prisons to keep up.Escape from Time is the story of a new way of life in America--life in the NOW! Read it and understand who we are; escape the fiction that we are who we were.Author bio: Frederick Kileengineer, theologian, corporate futurist.
