This chapter is sort of a “How-to-manual.” It is not an AA 12-Step program. It’s an AA 7-Step program, where AA stands for Alter America. Let me give you a little backgrounder on my AA.
In the Afterword of The Devil’s Marriage I envisioned a model of a rebuilt America. I called the model “Alter America.”  Its characteristics would be remarkably different from the real America in four ways.
First, America would be a peace making and internationally law abiding nation, not the warring and spying scofflaw it has always been.
Third, America’s economic system would depend on the production of socially beneficial products and services and not on using other peoples’ money to make money.
