In the new voted system, everyone starts life equal at age 18, there are no inheritances, money cannot be accumulated, and politicians are prohibited from becoming rich. Businesses primary goal is rearranged to maximize the extent in which customers are being helped by their services (rather than mere profit), while individuals’ income is based on their level of contribution to society while climbing a set ladder of success.
While these seemed attractive for the majority, for others, like Ben Burner, this new system is a nightmare. Ben rejects it and joins the violent rebellion against it in an attempt to regain his status, and as a result he is forced to escape and is saved by an underground touring band on the road. This book offers an amazing glimpse at how such a moneyless society just might be possible.
The Escaping Revolution project is also comprised of an album that follows the story with songs and parts that are based on certain scenes in the book. The album (named “Escape/Revolution”) was recorded in Seattle and host many local guests, most notably Ben Shepherd, bassist of Soundgarden.
