 About the Book

Never Again argues philosophically, and by pointing to multilateral treaties among nations and UN conventions, that individual freedom is the most basic human right. This, and that freedom is a natural desire of all people, would be enough to justify freedom for everyone. But, the major substance of this book goes far beyond these justifications to establish that freedom is also a Moral Good. One Moral Good is that liberal democracies, those whose people are individually free with secure civil and political rights and liberties, don't make war on each other. Another is that their democratic governments do not murder them. And a third is that their internal political violence is minimal compared to non-democracies. All this alone would make freedom the foremost Moral Good. But this book also shows that free people-democracies-never have famines, and freedom is an engine of the greatest wealth and development among nations. In short, to the Moral Imperative, "No people should ever suffer war, democide, famine, and mass impoverishment, no, never again," this book proves that fostering individual freedom is the practical way to assure this.
