Overview

Here, in this landmark personal work, Gerry demonstrates how, despite the democratic rhetoric we hear and believe, we have become enslaved. All of us are trapped by a complex web of corporate and governmental behemoths he calls the "New Slave Master" That today controls our airways, educates our children, and manages every facet of our lives.

Yet, far from being a pronouncement of gloom, Give Me Liberty! is an inspiring and visionary work. In the spirit of his bestselling How to Argue and Win Every Time, Spence expounds on his philosophy, thus empowering us to:

Liberate the slave within, redefine success, unchain the spirit, escape the religions of work and beliefs that enslave us, free ourselves with what he calls our "magical weapon."

Like Thomas Paine's Common Sense, Give Me Liberty! captures the underlying malaise of a country, transforming it into a national dialogue that promises a groundswell for a meaningful democracy in America in the coming years.

    ONLY The truth can save us - and set us free.

    Prior to reading this book, I was aware of the slavery that has become a part of life in modern American life and politics. However, my copy of Gerry Spence's book is filled with folded corners that represent important pieces of data I want to revisit and remember. In order for America to become an honestly free country, EVERY American (especially lawyers and politicians) needs to digest the words Gerry Spence pleasantly organized regarding problems that that are very difficult to confront in an age full of facades. If we can all face this truth, then we can make the changes that can truly set us free....From the author of SANDWALKER, a fictional Indian who knew the composition of freedom in the Oregon Territory.
