Escaping From Freedom: Healing Our Society
In times of division and loss of understanding ("How can 'those people' believe in that?"), we need to look more closely, with an open mind and heart.
I have written an ebook which presents in a clear manner the driving forces behind the move to authoritarianism in this country and some other countries as well, past, present, and very likely and in various locations, in the future. Here is a table of contents:
1. Denial (is not just a river in Egypt)
2. The Birth of Wealth, Power, and Alienation
3. The Search for Certainty
4. The Search for Connection and Belonging
5. The Two Meanings of Power
6. The Big Heart for Creating Peace
7. The Deceiving Lures of Nazism and Fascism
8. Growing Responsible, Truly Free Citizens
9. Re-Humanizing Our Society
The free 19-page ebook, Escaping From Freedom, builds on the insights of Erich Fromm's iconic 1941 book Escape From Freedom, in order to shed light and offer emotional connection. In this way, we can understand better and take effective action in society to promote healing and improvement in the real quality of life.
