The book highlights the despotic power of the major corporate entities that control our lives and our well being, and then cites steps that would restructure our economic, financial political structures so that there could be full release of the nation's work capability, with full implementation of equal human rights. To this end it presents the realistic and constitutional proposals of a "National Cooperative Commonwealth" which would achieve those goals.
The author states that every waking morning the people should be inspired and energized by what President Lincoln said in his first inaugural address, March 4, 1961:
This country with its institutions belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amendment, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.
