John Stuart Mill made essential contributions to social theory, political theory and political economy. He has been called "the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century".

The essay on The Spirit of the Age is Mill’s most influential contributions to social theory. It is one of the most widely read of all books on social theory in the world as Mill's On Liberty and On the Principles of Political Economy.

Similar to Alexis De Tocqueville who wrote Democracy in America at gage 26, John Mill wrote the essay at age 25. When John Mill wrote The Spirit of the Age, he sensed that British society was to enter a society which would be dominated by the middle class based on classical liberal ideas. John Mill declared a vision in the essay that “The nineteenth century will be known to posterity as the era of one of the greatest revolutions of which history has preserved the remembrance, in the human mind, and in the whole constitution of human society.”

Using his writings, Mill became one of the greatest minds who helped build the foundation of a new form of democratic society in human history that is prevailing and failing communism and socialism around the world.

Today, the train of history is hitting another cross point when socialistic China is emerging to challenge our way of living and the foundation of democratic society. Reading the Spirit of the Age by Mill and foreseeing the future of the world from Mill’s vista point, we can safely say that so called China Socialism is a bubble and is the last bubble of socialism in a large scale. Mill’s vision in the Spirit of the Age is still a true foundation to guide our democratic evolution and to fail any forms of socialism.

We are sensing Mill’s spirit again when we are at beginning of another big wave of democratizing individual power across the planet that are powered by coming knowledge revolution, new energy revolution, new manufacturing revolution, and biologic revolution. Every corner in every country on the planet will be impacted and challenged by this wave including China and the United States. Following Mill’s vision, the future belongs to informed and connected individuals that their rights and assets tangible and intangible are equally powered, protected, encouraged, and liberated in a new standard that we could not imagine in the past.

John Mill is known as one of the founders of economics. This is a must-read book for people who are interested in the deepest thoughts about the methodology of forecasting the future of social evolution and political economy by John Mill, one of the greatest thinkers on the planet.
