In this provocative and timely work, Dr. Hoeller examines the psychology of tyranny and shows how segments of our society preach freedom but actually advocate oppression. Stunning in its insight, this book will help readers understand the movement towards freedom that is occurring in the world today as well as the concept of freedom itself.

Here we are in the 21st century, and some reactionaries want us to regress to alchemy. Hoeller praises Jung - the well-known Nazi-supporter and racialist - as some kind of guru of freedom, because of his supposed insights into alchemy. Alchemy was just absurd mystical, medieval speculation about the origins of life and the 'meaning' of minerals. Hoeller tells us in tedious detail about Jung's entirely subjective views of the 'meaning' of alchemy, as if they were some kind of mystical key to understanding the world! These kinds of books of philosophy, based on the denial of the real world and of our ability to understand it through science, are props for reaction. There is a solid link between this idealism in philosophy and reaction, pro-Nazism, in politics.
