Seven Steps to Justice - the Book



Seven Steps to Justice

by Rodney Shakespeare & Peter Challen

Foreword by Peter Selby, Bishop of Worcester

Seven Steps to Justice contains the intellectual and moral basis for the whole of the Global Justice Movement. It is a complete re-thinking of economics, politics, the monetary system and religion to create a new paradigm providing:-

• two secure incomes for all
• capital ownership for all
• a proper deal for women
• a solution for the Middle East and Kashmir
• hope for the environment and the world.

At the heart of the Steps is the urgent need for a new stable, just, global monetary system which addresses poverty and rich-poor divisions; focuses on the real, productive, economy; enables all societies to control their own destiny; ends the exponential increase in debt now threatening to engulf the world; and ends usury (interest).
Central to the analysis and proposals of the book is work done by Peter Challen known as the “matrix”. Over a period of several years, Peter had been investigating various groups and schools of thought in the endeavour to identify where they stood on a range of important issues. As time went on he was able to see what was, and was not, held in common. Very interestingly, virtually all the groups tended to see the world only from their own relatively narrow perspective but – and it was a very important “but” – the matrix began to reveal that, perhaps unknown to the individual groups, they often had more in common with others than they might suppose.

All of which gives a clue to the nature of the GJM and its promise of success if groups and schools co-operate with each other. Without co-operation, the individual groups and schools have little, even no, chance of success. But, in contrast, the matrix reveals that the chances of success immensely increase with co-operation because so many others have similar elements of policy or belief. Therefore, working on the principle of a half, even a quarter, of a loaf being better than none at all, the Seven Steps has identified the core issues which can form the basis of co-operation and success.

The book opens by recording the reaction of people of good faith to the events of 11th September 2001. They do not succeed, however, in coming up with a solution. The situation then suddenly changes – a “dirty” bomb has exploded! The explosion focuses minds on the urgent need to develop a new economics, politics and morality. Hearing the global cry for social and economic justice, the people of good faith go on to interpret and enhance contemporary debate taking place at focal points across the world and in the hearts and minds of concerned people everywhere. The result is an extraordinary vision of a universal justice which is wholly practical, radical and new. The justice gives the boldest of moral and intellectual leads for a world desperately in need of leadership.

The Seven Steps contain a new paradigm which is being welcomed at Western and Islamic international conferences because it not only strikes at the heart of usury but is also the only possible way by which all peoples will be able to create their own prosperous and fully democratic societies living in peace with others.

Such is the book’s huge potential for peacefully revolutionising society that Sir Richard Body has described it as “a testament to politicians aspiring to be statesmen”.

Other endorsers point to its profound sense of justice, its prescience and – a matter of importance to any reader – the brilliant lucidity of its exposition. John Bunzl wrote: “They make simple, readable and understandable subjects which others manage to make complicated and impenetrable.”
