Political power—armed central authority, with states and war—is it really necessary for human society? Or is it a tool that ruling elites use to live at the expense of society? Engines of Domination offers a theory of political power as a tool for making tools of human beings—an engine that converts human energy into power and privilege for the rulers. Invented in the Bronze Age and brilliantly refined for six thousand years, today this engine threatens to destroy our world in the human emergency. Applying his theory of political power to Western history, Corske makes a passionate argument that there is only one way to save the future­. Armed central authority must be abolished, giving way to a world of peaceful voluntary communities—in other words, an argument for anarchism.
