Seven Steps to Justice
by Rodney Shakespeare & Peter
Foreword by Peter Selby, Bishop
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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”.
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:
make simple, readable and understandable subjects which
others manage to make complicated and impenetrable.”
