In these dark times that try our souls, your life choices can make global sense.
Against a backdrop of climate change, political upheaval and economic instability, The Dawn of Global Sense reveals how authority addiction and alpha male rule have driven us to ravage our planet and sacrifice liberty for security. Offering real hope, international journalist and award-winning author Judah Freed proves that an awakening into global consciousness is reaching a tipping point, empowering us to change the world from within ourselves.
Through stories from his life and from history, Freed masterfully exposes the roots of tyranny and documents the growing ranks of globally aware people who realize everything we think, feel, say, and do impacts ourselves and our world.
A call for world enlightenment inspired by Thomas Paine's Common Sense, The Dawn of Global Sense unites the ideas behind personal sovereignty, social responsibility, open democracy, and ecological renewal. Judah Freed brings our highest ideals down to earth where we can use them.
