A Strange Liberty: Politics Drops Its Pretenses

Jeff Deist

A Strange Liberty argues persuasively that the faith in democracy as a force for internal peace and dependable constitutional restraints has not worked. Instead, we are left with centralized tyrannies, highly disputable election results, ideologically driven media, and state educational systems that have made war on “traditional” values. The question, then, is not “How do we preserve our democracy?” but “How do we escape from a totalitarian administrative state, its surveillance operations, and the lies told by its public relations allies?” Jeff Deist believes it will take action.

A Strange Liberty calls for the relentless pursuit of decentralization in whatever manner this course is still open to decent, freedom-loving citizens.

—Paul Gottfried, from the foreword
