It lays down a stark challenge to western societies and their citizens to either liberate themselves from burgeoning bureaucratic states or slip further into helpless servitude.

Detailed examples are given to illustrate how such use would encourage fairer and more democratic outcomes for modern societies."--Provided by publisher."@en
