The world is fragmented, divided and, hence, in conflict. My country versus your country, my religion versus your religion, my beliefs versus your beliefs. This fragmentary way of living is destroying us. Person against person, nation against nation—the world is being torn apart by conflict. What is the root of this conflict? Through inquiring into the nature and structure of conflict, can we come into direct contact with all that which prevents peace?


Peace, the Enemy of Freedom does not offer solutions, methods, conclusions, or hopes about peace. It does not advocate any political, philosophical, economic, or religious reform to solve the problem of war. This book raises essential questions concerning what prevents peace and, by so doing, evokes insight into that which created conflict, individually and globally.
