Summary
"The ideal of freedom is at the heart of our political and economic system. It is foundational to our sense of justice, our way of life, our conception of what it is to be human. But are we free in the way that we think we are? A highly original exploration of the most urgent questions of our time, Creating Freedom reveals that we are far less free than we like to think, but it also shows that freedome is something we can create together. In fact, our very survival may depend on our doing so."--
Has edition
Summary
An artist, writer and documentarian presents his treatise on the limits of America's supposed freedom, which he asserts has been distorted into justifying inequality, an irrational criminal justice system, and a dehumanizing foreign policy
