THE BLUE BOOK OF FREEDOM NARRATED BY JOHN WAGNER
"The solution for world peace,
nonviolence, and human security...democratic freedom."
“As a species, we have been killing ourselves by the millions in war after war throughout history. Now, finally, we have the power of knowledge to end forever—or at the very least drastically reduce—all this human slaughter. Freedom gives us the answer. Until all people everywhere enjoy this freedom, we must foster at least some freedom where none exists, to lessen the mass killing by war. War is an evil, and the fact that it has necessarily been fought by free people to preserve their freedom, makes it no less so.
What would eliminate this evil must be a moral good!
We must foster democratic freedom for all humanity to end this bloody scourge!” RJ Rummel
