The Secret to Political Happiness: Uplifting New Book, a Bold Clarion Call to Humanity, Provides Blueprint to Achieving True, Permanent Peace & Prosperity

Written from the life, experiences and wisdom of Angus Ramsey, 'The Secret to Political Happiness' cuts to the very core of the human condition; exploring politics and the economy from a compelling new perspective to prove that humanity truly is sustainable. In fact, Ramsey is confident that the time is right for humankind to show her true colors, with peace and prosperity possible if only the citizens of the world can truly understand what it will take to "fertilize" the rose they have been pruning for millions of years. It's a powerful read - one that will compel readers to reconsider every shred of their existence.

For Immediate Release

Comox, British Columbia - Angus Ramsey's likening of the human species to a rose struggling to survive on hostile territory is a practically perfect analogy. It has taken millennia for the rose to sprout the buds of understanding, with its "hidden" buds of peace and prosperity just bursting at the seams to bloom. But this full-bloom is stagnated by the bud-nipping of autocracy and the black rust of oppression. The reality is that humankind's true colors have never been allowed to fully shine through.

But Ramsey's life-changing new book proves it is possible for humanity to achieve the "full bloom" it so desperately craves. Everything is unraveled in 'The Secret to Political Happiness'.


A study of the human condition. Humankind seems to be caught in a vortex at this time in history. It spins faster and faster while an increasing number of its members question its sustainability. This manuscript consists of a detailed introduction focusing on some fundamental concepts holding our societies together. It is a unique look at our political and economic systems; their strengths, weaknesses and possible ways to use the strengths of one to bolster the weaknesses of the other. With new technologies, we can use some very old ideas to build a sustainable future.

"The "fertilizer" we need to allow us to bloom comes in the form of understanding," explains Ramsey. "This will allow the intricate structures and brilliance of the human family to burst into a rapid and unstoppable bloom of peace and prosperity. It's what we've always wanted, and we can have it!"

Continuing, "I've learned a lot in life and now see it as my responsibility to pass on what I've uncovered so humanity can move to where it needs and wants to be. This book is my legacy and, if humankind is serious about blooming to its full extent, my book provides the answers."

With the volume's demand expected to increase, interested readers are urged to secure their copies without delay.

As a young man I lived in a world filled with the madness of war on the brink of a nuclear holocaust.

 I had a dream.

I dreamed that when I was old I would be living in a world free of war, corruption and oppression. I dreamed I would be living on a planet where a peaceful human race shares the bounty of our planet with all life forms.

Now I am old. I share an amazing world enhanced by technology but my dream of border crossings dissolving into welcome centers filled with people who have a deep trust in one another has not occurred.

 Instead I live in a world filled with the madness of war on the brink of nuclear holocaust run by madmen.

As an old man I want to pass on the dream of peace and justice to a new generation.

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall not sit in? Greek proverbe


  • Consensus (Latin) -agreement, harmony, accord, unity, unanimity, solidarity.

    I like the word consensus because it doesn't necessarily mean majority. In any given election the winner rarely has the backing of the majority of citizens. Many citizens are happy to be led. The important consideration is indoctrinating the fact, at an early age, that each citizen in a democratic society has ownership and controls exactly the same amount of political authority (POPA) from the age of consent until the end of life. With this understanding laws will be made, by citizens, to insure that each and every citizen, doesn't matter who they are, have equal access to controlling their POPA twenty-four seven, three hundred and sixty five days a year. The decision of participation is left to each citizen. This is defined as informed consent. By not acting the citizen is in fact participating by saying they are happy with the status quo.

    Almost without exception when I use ancient Greece as an example of a participative democracy some one will stand up, usually a well educated woman, and make the statement "women and slaves were not included. How can you call that a democracy?" This is a true and valid statement. Depending on which period in the Golden Age of Athens you are talking about only eight to twenty percent of the population controlled their POPA.

    In ancient Attica if you went to a public space with say ten people there would be one or two who controlled political authority. However, in modern times, we can go to a gathering of twenty thousand people and there won't be a single person there who controls their POPA. Even though we call ourselves citizens, the common person is politically equivalent to a woman or a slave in Ancient Greece. This situation was acceptable before our society developed the technology to tally with absolute ease consensus, however it is completely unacceptable in today's technological world. Not only is it unacceptable to not tally consensus but it is also unacceptable to allow the economic playing field to become so skewed to favor those holding privilege within law that people have given up participating.

    We all know, even if we achieve a participative democracy, only a small percentage will participate. This is acceptable because no one should be forced to participate. We (each individual) have been given our POPA upon the age of consent. We understand what it means and how it works through our public education system and will always have the discretion to do what we think best.

    By using the percentage of consensus rather than majority we can make legitimate law through a process of informed consent.
