Marc gets right down to brass tax and addresses the controversy surrounding his recent comments in the media. A tremendous amount of time is spent tracing the rise and fall of empires and what those great societies added to our modern day world.

Marc ends with the thought that once you are a prisoner of the system it is very difficult to get out. Prisoners are good for governments as they help boost GDP. GDP, therefore, is not what one should use to measure how well a society is doing. A better indicator is the quality of living amongst the population.
