The Struggle for Freedom

Program #FONE002. Recorded in Salem, OR on November 05, 1998.

Few concepts are as emotionally and politically charged as freedom. It is the guiding principle of almost all nation states. But the word is hardly dry on paper before the struggle for its application and very definition begins. Over the course of history, freedom has been a living truth for some and a cruel mockery for others. Today, debates on everything from abortion to immigration to gun control are couched in the rhetoric of freedom.
