The territory of Good and Evil, Freedom and Slavery, Lordship and Bondage, Reason and Foolishness, Creation and Destruction, etc., has been explored since time immemorial. But much reflective thinking still remains to be done; much territory is still unopened and unexplored. The connection between Mind, Life, and Justice, is still not the real substance of Legislation. Man's Destiny is still grounded and mired in servitude.

In Books I-III, I explore the extreme dangers from Capitalism as technology for dominating Man as servitude, and I reflect on the new grounds for a better Destiny for Man. This intellectual adventure would have been impossible without drawing on the works of the giants: Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Galileo, Hobbes, Locke, Hume, Voltaire, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Clausewitz, Schopenhauer, Jefferson, de Tocqueville, Nietzsche, Freud, Bohr, Schrödinger, Heisenberg, Heidegger, Schumpeter, Rawls, Bohm, Ricoeur, and others. My intellectual indebtedness to these giants is gratefully acknowledged.

I used Thomas Hobbes' logic to unconceal Capitalism as a Religion of Money. I derived the basic elements of Hobbes' Theory of Authority and Power from the analysis by Stephen Holmes in his Introduction to Behemoth. To develop the Gedanken Plan of War against the Money Trust, I used Carl von Clausewitz's concepts and principles of war in Vom Kriege. Hegel's philosophy of Lordship and Bondage is the seed of my explanation of the essential relationship between the Usurer and the Entrepreneur. Martin Heidegger's thinking on the subject of dominion through technology provided me with the essential intellectual machinery for probing the essence of Capitalism. I used David Bohm's notion of implicate order to unconceal the essence and meaning of the business cycle.

The Economic Survey draws on many economic and financial data sources. These are identified in captions and listed in the Bibliography and in the Analytical Index. The University of Toronto Library, the Metropolitan Toronto Reference Library, and the Statistics Canada Reference Centre in Toronto have been extremely helpful.

There are undoubtedly errors and omissions in my work. For these, authors normally take full responsibility; however, as a Capitalist, I will content myself with blaming time and chance.
