Creating freedom The lottery of birth, the illusion of consent, and the fight for our future

Raoul (Documentarian) Martinez

Book - 2016

"Freedom has long been a foundational concept at the heart of our civilization. Free markets, free media, free speech-even in these politically divided times, freedom is one thing we can all agree on. But we also live in a time of unprecedented economic inequality, eroding democracy, and a broken criminal justice system. How can we value freedom and simultaneously inhibit it? In Creating Freedom, Raoul Martinez argues that the more we understand the limits on our freedom, the better we will... be at resisting them. Drawing on neuroscience, criminology, psychology, politics, climate science, economics, and philosophy, Creating Freedom lays a blueprint for us to make sense of our fractured world-and illuminates the path toward a better future"--Publisher's website.
