Editorial Reviews

Review

"Liberty and safety are ideals that can be attained together, but too often Americans sacrifice the former in pursuit of the latter. Feardom explains how this happens, and offers important solutions for how the trend can be reversed." --Anthony Romero, Executive Director, ACLU

"Totalitarians gain power by promoting fear and hate among the masses. In the 20th century, the communists gained power by promoting fear and hatred of the czars and capitalists. Adolf Hitler gained power by promoting fear and hatred of Jews and Bolsheviks. While America has not yet reached such heights of totalitarianism, Feardom does a yeoman's job of giving us advanced warning signs." --Walter E. Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics

"Tools I created for the government to protect the American people were turned, by that very government, into a weapon against us. Sadly, this is nothing new; as Connor Boyack explains in this timely and compelling book, power-hungry politicians and conniving bureaucrats take advantage of whatever opportunity they can to further their agenda. You can help throw a wrench into their machine. Read Feardom!" --Bill Binney, former NSA technical director turned whistleblower

"Feardom explains clearly and succinctly how Americans have lost their freedom and what they need to do to win it back. Everyone should read this book." --Jacob Hornberger, president, The Future of Freedom Foundation

"Good journalism should be skeptical of government actions and should inform and empower individuals. Most media institutions fall short of this ideal and instead routinely paralyze their viewers with fear. As Connor Boyack explains in this compelling book, the consequences of this are drastic and detrimental--but they are not irreversible. Feardom offers solutions to this problem that are sorely needed and very timely. A must read!" --Ben Swann, award-winning investigative journalist
