In time, autocratic socities revolt to have democracy and democratic societies manage the chaos to have control and sanity. When both socieites reach equillibirum, the pendulum rests in the middle.In my book, The Human Condition, physical, mental and emotional aspects of man were discussed in relation to the global concerns and survival of humanity. This book was written mainly to analyze and evaluate our immediate environment in the context of Western culture. It is an overview dedicated to the evaluation of our American way of life as it reflects on our personal and global existence in the twenty-first century.In this book, various aspects of our culture affecting the foundation of society have been systematically chosen, critically analyzed and discussed. As identified and explored, a considerable number of societys functions are unleashed, unmanaged and out of control. Sad to say, as experienced over the years, and especially in recent years, there has been an erosion and gradual breakdown of our society in many ways. These chaotic situations have been brought to the readers attention, the severity of the condition has been discussed and the solutions to address them have been presented.After all is said, there is optimism and hope for rebuilding and genuine evolution from within- however, if we do not wake up and take serious measures to change and manage many aspects of our society, it is likely that in the future we will not be able to continue our democratic way of life as a sound culture. This book is meant to ignite interest, awareness and show the masses that our enemy is within us. A healthy and noteworthy society needs more than money and power to survive, evolve and endure.Persian-born Mehran Vajdi is scientist who received his B.S. and M.S. from The University of Manitoba, holds a Ph.D. in lipid chemistry from The University of Massachusetts, and post-doctorate in analytical chemistry in collaboration with The U.S. Army Natick Laboratories.
