A WARNING FROM AN AUTHORITY: Save Freedom! is an urgent plea by Bijan Moini, a human rights activist and expert on civil liberties.
Freedom is something we take for granted—a fundamental human right we assume will always be there, and that we complain about vocally when we feel it’s being upon. But in reality, the number of countries in which people can live freely is decreasing for the first time in decades. Bijan Moini’s new book is a jarring wake-up call: if we aren’t careful, our freedoms may be stripped away, too, and it might be our own fault.
Vividly describing the current landscape of civil liberties in our capitalistic and digital age, Save Our Freedom! explains the immense importance the principle plays in our day-to-day, and outlines concrete actionable measures to fight back..
TIMELY, IMPORTANT, AND URGENT: The voluntary ceding of freedoms is an alarming and highly relevant issue facing our digital world, and one that we are not giving sufficient attention. Save Freedom is a call to action to change our focus before it’s too late.
