Through the activities and behavior of humans, the Anthropocene, which is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced, has been unlocked. The globe has been plunged into a continuously declining state, creating the sixth mass extinction. The beginning of the industrial revolution, over 200 years ago, is potentially leading the world to an abyss through the rapidly-increasing neoliberalism business practices, encouraging mass consumption and threatening to affect global war through its strive for global domination. How do we regulate the health of our biosphere? What balance is required for life support to the current types of flora and fauna? And how do humans best fit into this grand design?

Nemesis 6 by Richard Mollinger is an updated edition of previous attempts that “sought to provoke a discussion in the European Union (EU) to prevent catastrophic decision-making regarding both the Anthropocene and geostrategic considerations." On a clear basis of evaluation and considering the sixth mass extinction, this book was primarily motivated by the health of our biosphere with strategic solutions attributed to the technological revolution. In summation, the book is directed toward “One Biosphere, One People."

The French revolution, discussed in this book as a “work in progress," intertwined with the American revolution, served as a catalyst for understanding the evolving revolution. In this section of the book, European history is detailed “as the birthplace of democracy" and the ongoing “determined effort to break free from human ignorance, greed, and destruction." Considering that this project is going to be on a global scale, this part of the book would help readers familiarize themselves with the past and present economic practices around the world. I considered this part as one of the positives.

In the chapter “ROAD TO ENLIGHTENMENT," Richard Mollinger was deliberate about the constructive communication of the term “Revolution" to readers. To achieve this, the names of significant revolutionists in history and their accomplishments and faults are cited, as opposed to how the media portrays the term. Most importantly, I believe that the author achieved the full aim of this book, given the expatriation of the technological revolution in alliance with democracy, Keynesian economics, and "STEAM," addressing climate change and decarbonization.

Hence, I rate this book five out of five stars. The book was well-edited and best communicated to suit readers. The only aspect of this book with the possible potential to discourage some readers is the criticism of capitalism and communism as alliances to neoliberalism. But looking beyond the present, all this will eventually culminate in bringing balance to our biosphere once again.

My first recommendation of this book would be to young readers, being that the security and safety of our biosphere depend on “a positive paradigm shift over the next three generations." Readers who are interested in science-based projects would also find this book enlightening as well.

The book sounds very interesting and informative. The greed and ignorance of human is the biggest reason why we are facing destruction in many ways. As you said a positive change over the next generations could be the way to get back the balance we lost.
