A World Without Identity: The Sacred Task of Uniting Humanity
A World Without Identity offers an incisive diagnosis of the problems of our current political, economic, and legal systems, and a profound critique of the conventional ways we attempt to reform them. Our system and solutions all suffer from the same flaw: the illusion that we are separate from each other and therefore must defend ourselves from others. In reality, we are all one; our lives are entirely interconnected and interdependent, and we all share the same fundamental emotions, desires, and connection with the Divine. We are on a path to global unity, where differences are no longer sources of division or derision. To manifest that world, we must abandon our conventional ways of creating social change. Reframing our systems of government, finance, and law from a place of compassion, unconditional love, and forgiveness, A World Without Identity offers a radical new vision for healing our world and uniting humanity.

Assessment:

Idea: Garlinger's thesis is that true spiritual transcendence comes through rejecting concepts of identity and individuality in favor of a more collective approach to being. The work is highly philosophical and requires readers to fully give of themselves to the groundbreaking ideas being presented.

Prose: As a channeled text, the prose is not conveyed through a single perspective--the author's or anyone else's. Instead the text would seem to be spoken through collective voices that espouse the ideals of living in service of greater unity and compassion. Readers desiring more concrete self-help guidance may be turned off by the conceptual framework, while others will delight in it.

Originality: A World Without Identity makes the bold suggestion that the autonomy so many individuals seek, can in fact be a detriment to personal growth and collective progress. The most freeing and productive path forward, the book posits, is through rejecting old structures and systems that reinforce separation, hierarchies, and self-serving goals. References to present day identity politics and divisions offer context and timeliness.

Character/Execution: A World Without Identity offers a highly immersive reading experience. Readers who are actively seeking a paradigm shift or a dramatic restructuring of their worldview, will welcome the lessons of this intrepid text.
