The American republic is suffering its gravest crisis since the Civil War. Will conflicts, hostility, and incivility tear the country apart? Os Guinness argues that we face a fundamental crisis of freedom as once again America has become a house divided. This grand treatment of history, civics, and ethics in the Jewish and Christian traditions represents Guinness's definitive exploration of the prospects for human freedom today.

When establishing the fundamental principles of our great nation, our founders incorporated into them an understanding of the Liberty they sought to secure. An Individual Liberty that is natural, "endowed by our Creator," and for which we are indebted to no man for. In establishing our "limited" Constitution and the Republic it ordains, they incorporated an understanding of both what threatens that Liberty and the means by which "designing men" may undermine them. How many of us today have such an understanding of either? Do we know and have an understanding of the fundamental principles upon which that Individual Liberty--our only true earthly freedom, prosperity, and the "pursuit" of any independent happiness--are even possible? If we don't, how are we to recognize what threatens it, who or what has targeted it for destruction, or how close we are to losing it for generations to come, if not forever? It is with these things in mind, and a father's concern for the very freedom of his children, that a decade-long research was launched: Last Call for Liberty is the result. There is a truth even in the deception that seeks to abolish it. A free people who wish to remain so should know both. It's an epiphany worth careful consideration and, in the sacred cause of Liberty, an absolute necessity, not just for ourselves but, even more importantly, for Posterity and Freedom itself.

Calling Out Liberty

On Sunday, September 9, 1739, twenty Kongolese slaves armed themselves by breaking into a storehouse near the Stono River south of Charleston, South Carolina. They killed twenty-three white colonists, joined forces with other slaves, and marched toward Spanish Florida. There they expected to find freedom. One report claims the rebels were overheard shouting, "Liberty!" Before the day ended, however, the rebellion was crushed, and afterwards many surviving rebels were executed. South Carolina rapidly responded with a comprehensive slave code. The Negro Act reinforced white power through laws meant to control the ability of slaves to communicate and congregate. It was an important model for many slaveholding colonies and states, and its tenets greatly inhibited African American access to the public sphere for years to come. The Stono Rebellion serves as a touchstone for Calling Out Liberty, an exploration of human rights in early America. Expanding upon historical analyses of this rebellion, Jack Shuler suggests a relationship between the Stono rebels and human rights discourse in early American literature. Though human rights scholars and policy makers usually offer the European Enlightenment as the source of contemporary ideas about human rights, this book repositions the sources of these important and often challenged American ideals.

Mirabella had even booked a NetJets Excel, but unfortunately, their passenger never arrived. Leanna kindly asked one of her best friends working at the NSA to activate her access to the satellites. Using Echelon on another computer, she managed to jam the engine software on Veronica's chauffeured car. When the limo got closer to a truck in the opposite direction, she pushed the enter-key on her laptop. Within a second, the driver suffered a heart failure through an electrical discharge on the steering wheel; a wrong steering signal was sent to the servo-control as well as a brake jamming. The car jumped into the air, doing a barrel-roll and crashing on the other side of the A8, into the approaching truck transporting liquid gas.
