Detailed eutopia described by a man from space who shows how it should be applied on Earth, led by the U. S. The book is dedicated to President Lyndon B[aines] Johnson (1908-73. President 1963-69), and the eutopia, although it goes much further, is loosely based on Johnson’s program for the Great Society. No war, poverty, crime, or disease. Stress on education. Overpopulation defeated by rigorous birth control and eugenic policies. Deformed children and mentally retarded children not allowed to live. Limit on the number of children. The changes were initially instituted in one country, and the rest of the alien’s world was “forced” to follow suit. The author was born in Estonia, educated through university in Germany. He then worked and became a plantation owner in Africa, served with the Germany army in World War 2, worked with the British Army in Kiel after the war, and settled in Canada in 1952.
