Today, the human race faces a new problem. Thanks to information technology, vast asymmetries of knowledge and power have opened up.

We, meanwhile, don't even have the right to know that any of this is going on. As Paul Mason argues in this pyrotechnic new book, all this is intimately connected to the urgent economic, political and moral crises we are living through now.
