In his first book Free to Be Human, David Edwards showed how the mass media, controlled by powerful business interests, distorts our understanding of many personal, ethical, and spiritual issues, ensuring that we remain passive, conformist and uninformed, and willing to accept the irrational values of corporate consumerism. In The Compassionate Revolution he builds on the argument, showing how our capitalist system is dependent on the promotion of the three Buddhist poisons: greed, hatred, and ignorance. He explains: greed for profit at any cost in terms of human suffering, hatred of foreign obstacles to profit, and ignorance of the cozy link between Western corporations and Third World dictators, helping to protect Western profits.
