(CityRegions.Com, July 27, 2021 ) Denver, CO and Chicago, IL – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—has just released Let There Be Light: Saving Ourselves and Our Planet Through a Global Social Compact, new non-fiction by Doug Irmen. Over the course of his 40-year career as an attorney, Doug developed a special interest in spirituality, comparative religion, cosmology, philosophy, national and international affairs and even quantum physics—all of which inspired him to pursue his most profound life mission: finding ways to bring people together in peace.
“The potentially catastrophic problems we face today are the result of a massive spiritual failure,” Doug explains. “Too many of us have forgotten the real purpose we were born for in the first place, which is to love and nurture ourselves and the earth.” Instead, the environment is in decline and the climate is becoming inhospitable; money and resources are wasted on weapons and warfare; and people are demonizing each other with such vitriol that nothing effective is getting done.
Let There Be Light proposes that we “tame the savageness of man” by using the Internet to adopt a universal Social Compact—a grass-roots spiritual and political movement that would operate as a Light Network to connect like-minded people around the world in an urgent crusade to reverse the course their governments and societies have put them on. This Social Compact will funnel people’s core goodness into a metaphorical ball of Light that beams out the conscience of mankind. A conscience that says NO MORE to our current failure to get along and cooperate. A conscience that will overwhelm governments and societies with the message that now is the time to achieve the universal desire of mankind, which is first of all to survive, and then to come together to love and respect all life on earth.
The Light Network website is now under construction. Although it will not be a formal legal entity, its work will nonetheless be felt throughout the world as a relentless force that tracks the issues that threaten our world and then shines its spiritual message onto the efforts that will be essential if we are to take back control of our destiny.
Doug writes with passion, occasional humor and contagious optimism that people are capable of a transformational shift in human consciousness that will empower our souls’ life missions and elevate humanity to a place that is equal to the herculean task of leaving a healthy and peaceful world to those who follow us on Planet Earth.

About the Author: Doug Irmen holds a bachelor’s degree with honors in Political Science, a master’s degree with honors in Political Science and International Relations, and a Juris Doctorate degree, all from the University of Kansas. Over a 40-year career as an attorney and counselor at law, Doug came to understand that successful resolution of interpersonal and social conflict was more often a function of the mindset and integrity of the people involved than it was of legal processes and technicalities. His practice ultimately grew into a broader practice of facilitation—one that encouraged cooperation, respect and conciliation. Doug now seeks to apply a similar practice of facilitation to the larger world in furtherance of what he believes to be his most profound life mission: finding practical ways to bring people together in peace during our lives on earth. Doug has two daughters—Anne and Sara—and three grandsons—Henry, Buzz, and George. He and his partner Kathleen split their time between Chicago, Illinois, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
