“Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot.
Religion is more needed in democratic societies than in any other”
President Ronald Reagan during a 1988 address marking Georgetown University’s 200th anniversary.

[Seek] authentic freedom [and] avoid every kind of illusory freedom,
every superficial unilateral freedom, every freedom that fails to enter into
the whole truth about man and the world.
Pope John Paul II
Redemptor Hominis 1979
Illusory freedom? An illusion hides the truth, but what does the truth tell us? We need God. We need to obey Him, and tyrants seek to replace God in our lives.
This is a really good book Tom
