His aim in this book is to present a case against the technocratic/technocentric paradigm, as well as to inform Australian, European, American and Asian readers about the multifunction polis and the larger crisis in Australian society.

Japanese technocracy, which is to be implemented increasingly in Australia, is, according to the author, Orwellian in the extent of its oppression and control, where the political process is degraded into a form of scientific management of public opinion. He predicts that the social, cultural and economic pain felt acutely by Australians will soon radiate to engulf the rest of the world.
