The Western World is in a state of turmoil. Although often well meaning, politicians are adding to the problem by a seemingly endless stream of unnecessary legislation, much of which is badly framed and ends up with ever greater confusion. In addition, the present obsession with political correctness is leading to an impasse in decision making. Meanwhile the voice of the ordinary citizen is seldom heard and anger is beginning to surface everywhere. What is going wrong? Why are we so adrift? How do we escape the dullness offered by our institutions? The Statutes of Liberty provides an answer.
Through a refreshing mix of prose and poetry, everything from political correctness to cultural diversity, the arts and religion are torn apart and examined like never before. The book digs deep into the nature of pseudo liberal thought and its pervasive influence over the law, sexual politics and academic and social life. It soon emerges that the instruments of our dilemma are the Progressives. They hold a stake in every aspect of daily life. They are the leaseholders of what is called New Thinking. They are leading the people towards disaster.
The Statutes of Liberty is a rallying call to sweep away the pseudo thought patterns of this New Thinking and restore the traditional foundations of freedom and liberty to national life - before it is too late. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in rebuilding society in the 21st century.
