Creating Freedom : Power, Control and the Fight for Our Future, Hardback Book

Creating Freedom : Power, Control and the Fight for Our Future Hardback

Hardback

Description

The ideal of freedom is at the heart of our political and economic system.

It is foundational to our sense of justice, our way of life, our conception of what it is to be human.

But are we free in the way that we think we are?In Creating Freedom, Raoul Martinez brings together a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, facts and arguments to dismantle sacred myths central to our society - myths about free will, free markets, free media and free elections.

From the lottery of our birth to the consent-manufacturing influence of concentrated wealth and power, this far-reaching manifesto lifts the veil on the mechanisms of control that pervade our lives.

It shows that the more we understand how the world shapes us, the more effectively we can shape the world.

A highly original and scholarly exploration of the most urgent questions of our time, it reveals that we are far less free than we like to think, yet it also shows that freedom is something we can create together, and that our very survival may depend on us doing so.
