It is a logical expectation that, after thousands of years of civilization, man be able to free himself from the bonds of basic needs, such as shelter, food, and financial security; or what is generally called as the struggles of survival. Today's man should be in such a position to be able to use his energies mostly for higher aspirations and goals such as love, progress and creativity. Dr. Moslehi asks the readers of her book NOT to take the content of this book so seriously when reading it for the first time. Casual reading, only for the sake of entertaining curiosity, eliminates the mind's struggles to defend the established self or analyze and compare ideas with previously learned materials. Therefore, it eliminates the obstacles of premature judgment, bias, or rejection. Being an analytical psychotherapist looking at the larger picture, Dr. Moslehi questions the wisdom of man's decision to allow the 'SYSTEM' of economy, as the case is now, to dictate the nature of all public affairs, and shapes therefore, our ways of living.She sketches images of today's societies in which human beings are running the wheel of economy under the influence of the imposed societal structures of politics, religion, media, and governmental systems. The writer warns us about the upcoming changes of elite-ruling, legitimized governmental dictatorships, the abuse of democracy and abuse of the masses, and puts forward simple forgotten facts to highlight the need to re-evaluate our thinking. She stimulates the readers' minds into thinking about existing duality and confusion over the definition and purposes of our basic structures, such as family, religion, and education. She questions the necessity for human beings at this age to spend most of their time and energy taking care of their basic needs of food, shelter, and love; and she rejects the notion of human animalistic characteristics remaining predominant as the natural rules of survival. She discusses the role of the monetary system in creating fundamental problems for mankind, and how our conditioned thinking and logic may limit our ability to bring about any fundamental changes. To contrast existing societies, Dr.Moslehi describes a 'Man-Ruling Society' by making attempts to think beyond the norm of existing societal structures. The book describes and suggests an alternative, interrelated system for social ways of living for mankind, and covers the following topics: 1- A thesis on the feasibility of the establishment of a humanist (man-ruling versus system-ruling) society and the necessity of such an endeavor. 2- The details of a design for creating an experimental city featuring the characteristics of an ideal society. 3- An approach to the selection of the qualified one thousand volunteers, as the first inhabitants of the experimental community. 4- The methods of preserving the desired conditions in a man-ruling society. 5- A description of the necessity for revising the current understanding of today's man's mentality, addressing undergone psychological changes. 6- Presenting new definitions regarding social concepts, such as happiness, love, greed, success, goodness, and democracy, based on today's man's mentality.This book hopes to open a forum for thinking, discussing, and presenting the ideas of scholars and students of social sciences regarding a new approach to the collective life of the human. In the years 1996-1998, the principals and suggestions discussed in this book were sent to the offices of two former presidents; Mr. Clinton, U.S., and Mr. Khatami, Iran, for review.
