"The upcoming book by Alice Miller, available June 29. Tyranny is a social expression of emotional damage, and emotional damage is the energy source powering tyranny and animating tyrants at all levels, from dictators to their low-level henchmen. To understand both freedom and the forces opposing freedom, push beyond your own defenses and see how national and global tyranny begins in the lives of individual children. Other than Chapter 7 ("Ideal Soldiers: When Will We No Longer Need Them?") Miller spends little time here on government, but every page is a breathtaking reminder of how much early damage there is among children and of how that damage affects later feelings and behavior. I've been reading a pre-release copy of Free From Lies, and recommend it to anyone interested in children, in freedom, or in the human condition generally."
