In these dark times that try our souls,
your life choices can make global sense.
Against a backdrop of climate change, political upheaval and economic instability, The Dawn of Global Sense reveals how authority addiction and alpha male rule have driven us to ravage our planet and sacrifice liberty for security. Offering real hope, journalist Judah Freed proves that an awakening into global consciousness is reaching a tipping point -- empowering us to change the world from within ourselves.
Through stories from his life and from history, Freed masterfully exposes the roots of tyranny and shows how enlightenment is spreading. He documents the growing ranks of people who realize everything we think, feel, say, and do impacts ourselves and our world.
Drawing on Thomas Paine's Common Sense, The Dawn of Global Sense unites the ideas behind personal sovereignty, social responsibility, open democracy, and ecological renewal. Judah Freed brings our highest ideals down to earth where we can use them.
Praise for The Dawn of Global Sense:
"The book is a declaration of global interdependence based on ideas of self rule rooted in Gandhi's principle of personal sovereignty."
-- Dr. Vandana Shiva, author, Stolen Harvest; Water Wars; Earth Democracy
"Thomas Paine rallied Americans to a new sense of themselves and their possibilities. Judah Freed does likewise for citizens of the planet."
-- Bill McKibben, author, The End of Nature; Deep Economy; Eaarth; Oil and Honey
"There is a hunger for this kind of integrative global perspective. I am extremely enthusiastic about the book!"
-- Francis Moore Lappe, author, Diet For A Small Planet; Democracy's Edge; EcoMind
"The Dawn of Global Sense explodes the old myths that we are essentially evil, that hierarchy and dominance are natural law. Judah Freed reveals how ancient male rule and authority addiction restrain our innate power for self government. Democracy can work, he argues, when we are willing to do the personal and spiritual growth needed to manage our freedom and society responsibly."
-- Thom Hartmann, author, Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight; Threshold; The Crash of 2016
"Freed has managed something quite remarkable: A sweeping, ambitious, and holistic approach to replacing what's wrong in the world with what's right."
-- Shel Horowitz, co-author, Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green; author, The Money Flow
"The Dawn of Global Sense is compelling in its ideas and wonderful in its personal elements. Read it!"
-- Herb Goldberg, PhD, author, The Hazards of Being Male; The New Male
"Judah Freed reminds us of the continuing relevance of American patriot Thomas Paine while transforming Paine's message of democracy and human rights into the spiritually-rich and psychologically-informed discourse of the 21st century."
-- Rabbi Michael Lerner, author, The Left Hand of God; editor, Tikkun Magazine
"Judah Freed has written one of the best books of the year, or any year for that matter. The Dawn of Global Sense is the only book I know that recognizes the need to address such issues as alpha male rule, authority addiction, and the absurdity of sacrificing our liberty for a false sense of security. He tells the truth with clarity, passion, and humor. If you care about humanity and our survival on planet Earth, you'll get a copy for yourself, your legislators, and everyone you know who cares about our future."
-- Jed Diamond, author, MenAlive, The Warrior's Journey Home
"The book is fascinating, and certainly useful."
-- Joanne Greenberg, author, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden
Read this book!"
-- Pete Seeger, singer, songwriter, activist
