Whose Freedom?

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in Books (other)

From the cover: “Since September 11, 2001, the Bush administration has relentlessly invoked the word “freedom.”  Al-Qaeda attacted us because “they hate our freedoms.” The United States can strike preemptively because “freedom is on the march.”  Social Security should be privatized in order to protect individual freedoms.In Whose Freedom?, Lakoff surveys the political landscape and offers an essential map of the Republican battle that seeks to capture the hearts and minds of Americans — and shows how progressives can fight to reinvigorate this most beloved of American political ideas.”
