The End of Man

Building on ideas set forth in his earlier best-sellers The Second American Revolution and The Stealing of America, John W. Whitehead examines patterns of thoughts arising out of scientific determinism and advancing technology. Together these forces have eroded the traditional view of humanity made in God’s image and replaced it with a relativistic, dehumanized view. The result has been the wholesale destruction of human life. Now, at the dawn of the 21st century, man faces the greatest threat ever: total annihilation. A new breed of death dealer is beginning to gain prominence. Eugenics is being promoted under the name biomedical ethics ; genocide is now called population planning ; abortifacient drugs are being readied for widespread distribution; and artificial intelligence threatens to overpower man himself, replacing human reasoning with electromechanical reactions. How did we get into this mess? What can be done to stop this madness? In this 25th anniversary edition of The End of Man, John Whitehead clearly traces the present situation back to its historical and intellectual roots. He builds a powerful case drawn from the writings of leading thinkers of the day-C.S. Lewis, Jacques Ellul, Malcolm Muggeridge, and others. Thoroughly documented with footnotes, a lengthy biography, and an updated foreword, Whitehead s assessment of the times supported by an enormous body of research.

John W. Whitehead
John W. Whitehead is an attorney and author who has written, debated and practiced widely in the area of constitutional law and human rights. Whitehead's concern for the persecuted and oppressed led him, in 1982, to establish The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit civil liberties and human rights organization whose international headquarters are located in Charlottesville, Virginia. Whitehead serves as the Institute’s president and spokesperson, in addition to writing a weekly commentary that is posted on The Rutherford Institute’s website (www.rutherford.org), as well being distributed to several hundred newspapers, and hosting a national public service radio campaign. Whitehead's aggressive, pioneering approach to civil liberties issues has earned him numerous accolades, including the Hungarian Medal of Freedom.
