"Tyrannies are sown at times when nobody is very watchful,where everybody has a full stomach, where everything is calm,nothing much appears on the surface. And then tyrannies showup and become very obvious when individuals, growing a littlehungrier, a little less possessed of production, suddenly noticethat there is somebody saying they mustn’t talk, somebody sayingthey mustn’t have opinions." - L. Ron Hubbard
To overcome tyranny is to win freedom as a people, anation or even Mankind. Yet to benefit fully from theirliberties, each man and woman must also be free - asindividuals.In regard to freedom as a nation, here is the remarkable story of howone man, the Athenian statesman Pericles, envisioned a better futurefor Mankind - a future free from tyranny. Thus developed a principleat the heart of modern civilization - specifically, that the individualcitizen has a right to his own opinions, a right to be heard and a rightto know and participate in government. Moreover, as new tyranniesemerge to threaten those rights, here is a crucial message for our timesand all times.Then again, toward the full attainment of that better future, herealso is Ron’s personal story of how he kept his discoveries aboutthe human mind out of the harness of a modern tyranny. And, inconsequence, how individuals today can achieve a level of personalfreedom never before possible.
