Non-Fiction - Manifesto - ENOUGH - ASSEZ ! - O.J KAMPRAD
The balance of our lives is much more vulnerable than we think, and nobody is protected from the trap of current systems". O. J Kamprad
L'équilibre de notre vie est beaucoup plus vulnérable que nous pensons, et personne n'est protégé contre le piège des systèmes actuels ". O. J Kamprad
A talended businessman and humanist (billionaire), O. Kamprand detests hypocrisy, wich he regards as the eight deadly sin.
Having traveled the world for three decades, the author presents key facts in this work about certain mechanisms painstakingly preserved in the shadows, and offers solutions to changing them for the better.
You are …
