Chapter 35 Summary and Analysis

In the final chapter, John talks more about how to change things by piercing through the veneer and taking the first step. The U.S. invaded Iraq because the EHM's and jackals had failed to get Iraq to comply. Would this invasion mean the end of OPEC and its control of Middle East oil? There is always the issue that the OPEC nations could raise prices to their highest, since they would have nothing to lose anymore if they were getting invaded. The price hike would be enough for the U.S. to implode on itself, since oil is based on U.S. currency. The U.S. is actually in extremely excessive debt. If these nations were to call in their debts, the U.S. would be in a lot of trouble. And if the Euro should rise to surpass the dollar and be used as the international currency, this would break the U.S., too.

There are many things wrong with the U.S., but how are people supposed to change the nation or even want to change it? John wonders why anyone who is able to buy a car, a house, enough food and clothes, electricity and health care ever want to rise up against the nation that makes it possible for them to get these things. Then he knew that the only thing that can make people rise up and challenge themselves and their people for a better life are words. Words can move people and cause them to act. Words are powerful on paper, and even more powerful when they are spoken. They have the power to change things, and that is why he wrote this book. He made the decision to stop procrastinating, to confess and "write the words in this book."
