The Lottery of Birth, the Illusion of Consent, and the Fight for Our FutureBook - 2016
Raoul Martinez brings together ideas, facts, and arguments to dismantle sacred myths central to our society--myths about free will, free markets, free media, and free elections. From the lottery of our birth to the consent-manufacturing influence of concentrated power, this book exposes the mechanisms of control that pervade our lives. Although we are far less free than we like to think, freedom is something we can create together. In fact, our very survival may depend on our doing so.--Adapted from jacket flap.
