Synopsis

Takes on one of the politicians' favorite rhetorical tools--the notion of freedom--and finds that it has been bastardized by not only American neo-conservatives, but a bevy of academics and researchers. Explores the argument that contemporary Western society is on the verge of authoritarianism due to the paranoid theories developed to fight the Cold War. Rational choice theory, which sees humans as self-serving robots, has become the defining assumption for the power elites. In turn, we are nowhere near as free as we think we are.
