Many of us were surprised by the escalating incidents that began right after Obama's election - tea parties, guns toted at town hall meetings, rumors of socialism and death panels. But Lee Harris knew this was coming. Harris has long been reflecting on freedom and what it really means. In this new book, he explains that the outrage we're witnessing is born of the age-old fear - as old as the nation itself - that someone will away take our freedom. It is this fear that sparked the current populist revolt, led by people like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin who have sounded the alarm, claiming that Obama's push for reform is simply the intellectual elite's most recent power-grab. Here, Harris shows that in reality, this ongoing debate is good and necessary. Throughout our history, Americans have challenged the definition of liberty and this has allowed us to progress as a society. Harris argues that we must listen carefully to this new populist uprising and take it seriously if we are to defend our founding principles and achieve true freedom for all.
