Das Bild, dass die Menschen von einem Konzern, einem Politiker oder einem Superstar haben, ist mit der wichtigste Faktor für deren Erfolg. Aus diesem Grund geben diese ein Vermögen für PR-Berater aus, spenden Gelder für wohltätige Zwecke oder unterstützen die Armen. Sie wollen eine Illusion, eine Vorstellung erschaffen, die sympathisch, erfolgreich und zuverlässig erscheint. Doch wenn man sich diese Bilder einmal genauer betrachtet, fällt dieses Kartenhaus meist sehr schnell in sich zusammen. Genauso haben wir als Gesellschaft ganz bestimmte Vorstellungen und Bilder von uns und unseren Institutionen. Die Kirche steht für das Gute, unsere Institutionen für Sicherheit und Erfolg, Politiker für eine neue Zukunft. Wir glauben zwar eine moderne und zivilisierte Gesellschaft zu sein, aber schon immer wurde diese "Zivilisation" mit den barbarischsten Mitteln verbreitet. Wir predigen Moral, Vernunft und Gemeinsamkeit, doch unser Verhalten entspricht dem in keiner Weise. Wir verstecken unsere Grausamkeit hinter der Moral, unsere Habgier hinter Wohltätigkeitsveranstaltungen und Benefizkonzerten. Wir sind so damit beschäftigt, unsere Fehler und Schwächen zu verstecken, dass wir gar nicht mehr erkennen können, wer wir eigentlich sind. Warum das so ist, und wie wir aus diesen Teufelskreisen ausbrechen können, darum geht es in diesem Buch. Aber Vorsicht, denn alles was ich hier anzubieten habe ist die Wahrheit! Und diese kann für eine "moderne Zivilisation" äußerst unangenehm werden.

Imagine places ideas in society and gets readers thinking critically about their most cherished beliefs and values. The topics are vast and varied: abortion, immigration, gay rights, love, mentorship, and sustainable development. There is no right answer. We must come to our own conclusions. If we can listen and learn from each other, we can accept our differences. Everyone has ideas on how to make the world a better place and fill humankind with hope. Imagine espouses humanitarian and egalitarian ideals such as every citizen deserves to reach their potential and contribute to society. Imagine is written from the perspective of protecting the people and the planet for current and future generations. You will learn of thought-provoking issues. The book proposes that we are all one and connected by spiritual energy. This will help us look for what we have in common and bring about social peace, social progress, and social change that light our souls and lift humanity in one colossal embrace.

Imagine a night when you can ride your bike right up the stairs to your bed. Imagine a night when your toy train rumbles on its tracks out of your room and roars back in, full sized, ready for you to hop on for a nighttime adventure. Imagine a night when a farmer plays a lullaby on his fiddle, and his field of sunflowers begins to dip and sway to the rhythm. Imagine a night when ordinary objects magically become extraordinary...a night when it is possible to believe the impossible. With the intrigue of an Escher drawing and the richness of a Chris Van Allsburg painting, renowned Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves depicts that delicious time between sleep and wakefulness, creating a breathtaking, visual exploration of imagination and possibility that will encourage both children and adults to think past the boundaries of everyday life, and see the possibilities beyond.
