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 little hungrier, a little less possessed of production, suddenly notice that there is somebody saying they mustn't talk, somebody saying they mustn't have opinions. To overcome tyranny is to win freedom as a people, a nation, or even Mankind. Yet to benefit fully from their liberties, each man and woman must also be free - as individuals.
-L. Ron Hubbard
In regard to freedom as a nation, here is the remarkable story of how one man, the Athenian statesman Pericles, envisioned a better future for Mankind - a future free from tyranny. Thus developed a principle at the heart of modern civilization - specifically, that the individual citizen has a right to his own opinions, a right to be heard, and a right to know and participate in government. Moreover, as new tyrannies emerge to threaten those rights, here is a crucial message for our times and all times.
Then again, toward the full attainment of that better future, here also is Ron's personal story of how he kept his discoveries about the human mind out of the harness of a modern tyranny. And, in consequence, how individuals today can achieve a level of personal freedom never before possible.
