You will be immediately added to the waiting list of recipients and notified when the PDF is ready.

And when it’s at last completed I will send you a PDF attachment of this expanded edition using the email address you sent with your PayPal donation.

Hogue-Langley-InteriorVips-Me-VerticleThis epic book has been long delayed for years because all of 2015  and 2016 saw me become a full-time caregiver aiding my mother through the final stages of her life to a beautiful passing on 15 July 2016. The process, conjuring big, life-altering changes, had made my return to the full-time writing of this massive tome a gradual affair given that there was a traffic jam of so many other works to be completed; however, there’s a hidden blessing in this. I believe this book by being delayed will now slot itself into a far larger time frame than the originally planned bi-annual edition. Indeed I will no longer do bi-annuals. Now you will all get a book that looks down AN ENTIRE DECADE.

And what a decade it will be! If the message of this book is understood and heeded, you might get a future where I can write another decade-covering book for the 2030s.  The pressures of slotting this book slowly back into the schedule of books I have life and time left to write make it impossible to give a solid release date, but hey, if people can forgive RR Martin for his long delays completing his literary version of Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire), I trust my readers will be patient with me as well. Both Martin and I are overwhelmed with projects. Moreover, my epic effort to capture the potentials of this account of the 2020s, the most important decade in human history to date is a massive prophetic and literary undertaking worth the wait.

For 33 years I’ve been writing about this decade starting with a BANG! And so it has! And in just the way I foresaw it. We literally crossed the threshold into a world completely changed and now deep in this decade’s death and transformatory time, with pandemics, political and economic revolutions afoot, a planetary climate crisis and a looming Sixth Mass Extinction.

The Oracular Muse that guides this book into yet another delay because of these upheavals is even more timely now that the book comes out in Spring 2021 because experiencing the history-altering events of 2020 now gives you a living context of what’s next in this decade. Moreover, I can now climax this book with a glimpse into what the 2020s will set up for the 2030s. From the Roaring 2020s, Decade of Destruction and Transformation, we enter the 2030s, Decade of Extinction or Rebirth!

This is going to be one of the most important books I have ever written. It will be a book of around Five Parts, each part going deep into important themes of human crisis and potential transformation in: social, political, religious, economic, and ecological themes. The book’s the final part will use the 2020s as a jumping off point in time previewing first the challenges of the 2030 and then using that theme as a jumping off point down the next 1,000 years foretelling the fantastic evolution of major human themes, politics, love, sex death, afterlife sciences, consciousness, extraterrestrial contact, human destiny in space and much more. I am combining in this book what had been a dozen or so smaller book themes as large essays in one volume. Given the coming times, the 2020s is a finishing ground for many of my tasks as a writer. This decade will see a completion of my testament about the future.

In the following, written in December 2019, my essay for New Dawn Magazine already captured many of the things that will define this new decade as “Roaring”–You have already experienced some of this. (Note: illustrations were added on 14 August 2020)





People ask why I call the next decade the “Roaring” 2020s. Now that we are about to enter the new year of 2020, the lift-off year of this most significant, sometimes very cross, crossroad decade in human history, I will explain in as few words as I can the ways this New Year instigates a ten-year roar down a path of destruction and transformation.

One begets the other.

2020 lights a decade’s roar of megafires from Australia to Amazon,  Central Africa to Arctic.

2020 roars of superstorms will flood coastlines from the Atlantic, Western Pacific to the Coral Sea. Cyclones will emerge in waters outside the tropics where they’re rarely seen and for the first time in eons, lightning will illuminate a melting North Pole.

In 2020 the engines of CO2/Methane sequestration take a large and venting, carbon-footprinted step closer to becoming emitters of same, feeding the new-abnormal climate in ways that you will not directly experience until the end of the 2020s.

Digestion takes that long to manifest. The boil in 2020 of methane across thousands of square miles of Arctic ocean, unzipped from venting continental shelves, will cross an arbitrary line by decade’s end. A line drawn by sandy-headed politicians at the Paris Climate Accords.

Global warming will pass a 2-degree Celsius mark in doomsday’s thermometer far sooner than politicians in 2020 will imagine. When it happens grain yields will begin collapsing in the 2030s. Only a tenth of the 8.5 billion people expected to witness the dawning of that human auto-suicidal decade may survive.


A fuse will be lit under other forces in 2020. The hue and tumult of multitudes cry “Havoc!” and let slip protest and riot onto the streets from Paris to La Paz, from Bogota to Baghdad. Hear them roar over concussion bombs in pitted battles, in rants and cries of fascist “foul!” through the fog of tear gas and rubber-bullet warfare. More approaches than children of Gaza being gunned down by barbwire snipers manning an open air prison of 2 million.

An Apartheid reckoning!

Because drinkable water in Gaza runs out in 2020.


Human voices long silenced will roar: the poor, the indigenous, the overworked and underpaid middle classes. The people of Earth will be heard raging against the new corporate fascist aristocracy, reaching the peak of its power in 2020. They sit on most of the world’s hoarded wealth, playing idle games in casino-like stock markets, whilst neglecting a real economy’s need for investment, infrastructure and jobs.

Enjoy 2020, you fat-Fiat cats of no-industry in your repeat of palatial Versailles isolation from reality. The lurch towards revolutionaries at the gates is coming. 2020 is your last good year.

The tide begins turning at the close of 2020 against this new incarnation of Fascism. Like before, it starts when Saturn (ruler of “time-is-up” karma) finishes a transit through an earth sign.

Fascism’s last incarnation was unstoppable until May 1942.

Saturn left Taurus.

A few weeks later Japan’s Imperial carrier fleet sank at the Battle of Midway. The Nazi juggernaut that had recently entered Stalingrad would later never came out.

The worst violence of World War II was still ahead. Likewise much more upheaval is ahead for us after Saturn’s departure from Capricorn at the end of 2020. Yet in both cases, mark the tide against Fascism that turned and will turn again.

Beginning in 2020 a great cycle of ages ends in what the prophet Nostradamus called the “unraveling of the world of people and animals.”

nostradamusMedalionportratiCloseupeyesDon’t despair.

Don’t number yourself among those unconsciously choosing to drop dead from their own fear of change as the Hopi foresaw in the Great Purification by Fire.

Say “yes” to transformation. Find your Noah’s Ark of Consciousness. Ride the inner eye of witnessing the coming history-storm. Keep your eternal flame blissfully shining through the dark decade coming. Celebrate and live this fact: only when human existence itself is in doubt are enough people ready to transform themselves and save their future.


In the mid-1980s my teacher Osho foresaw our 21st-century crisis, saying, “The new man is an absolute necessity. The old is dead or is dying…cannot survive long… And if we cannot produce a new human being, then humanity will disappear from the Earth.

“I am hoping against hope—but I still hope that the danger of global death will be the shock which awakens humanity. If man survives after this [20th] century] it will be a new man and new humanity.”

The 2020s will either be our last decade as a species, or find us learning the lessons a civilization needs to learn that makes its future beyond this point possible of being exploiters to guardians of a habitable planet. Rather than die out from our own abuse and stupidity, we get through the 2020s and we just might continue into the next evolutionary stage that most planetary civilizations never achieve. We may as a human race delve deeper into the next epochal journey into inner consciousness and love as well as explore outer space.

Roaring2020s-Thumb-125x188-28kbRoaring2020s-Thumb-125x188-28kbThus the symbol of this book cover of angel wings made of tails of comets, the heavenly portents. Whether this apparition is a portent of the Angel of collective human death or perpetual, even intergalactic human life, will be decided by all of our individual-to-collective actions in the 2020s.
