“For as the present world situationshows only too clearly, the emergingglobal era is a time of deep anxietiesand fears for governments, groups andindividuals. Out of this state of mindmany follies and some great dangersand disasters are growing. . . . Thenatural personal desire for certaintyand the natural government and groupdesire for unity can each in their waybe twisted into overreaching demandsfor uniformity. . . . Add to this theclash of religions and ideologies, thecacophony of the new media, and thehigh-octane dimension of prejudiceand hatred, and the combination canbe lethal.“Against all such abuses, whether bygovernments, religions, ideologies,tyrants, bureaucrats, universityadministrators, towering individualegos or some politically correctorthodoxy of one kind or another,this work is a passionate cry for soulfreedom for all—for every singleperson on the earth—and a call to seehow its freedom of thought, conscience,religion and belief may be advancedin the world of today and tomorrowfor the sake of the true dictates of ourhumanity.”

the global public square 
“This is a book that should be read by everyone concerned with freedom of conscience, not onlyin the face of murderous persecution as still exists in many places, but also with the more subtle threats by political orthodoxies in Westerndemocracies.”
