If a person in 2016 were to travel back in time to 1941, he would be entering a world taken over by violent dictatorships, especially at the hands of Adolf Hitler. Europe was at war and only two countries, Britain and America, still held onto the hope of democracy among the nations.
 
Returning back to the present-day, our time traveler would be astounded by the contrast. Democracy was no longer limited to a few countries but a worldwide phenomenon. The free society, nearly extinct seventy-five years ago, was now flourishing. Yet, extremist movements, reminiscent of the world he just left, are growing in strength.
 
Could history repeat itself? Author Mike Schober offers his political insights in his new book, The Accidental Free Society: A Historical and Modern Worldview of Dictators, Democracies, Terrors, and Utopias.
 
Mike leads readers along a shocking journey through the development of power in government, from the first rulers in Ancient Egypt to today’s political leaders and dignitaries. From the Scorpion King to Stalin and Mao, Mike unveils to readers people’s love of the dictator and their pursuit of power.
 
Coupled with this discussion of dictatorship, Mike also analyzes the pursuit of freedom and the establishment of the free society in Britain, America, and elsewhere. What circumstances made democracy possible in a world filled with dictatorships? The Accidental Free Society provides the answer.
 
The Accidental Free Society is a worthy examination of the historical direction the world has taken over the centuries, in hopes to educate readers on what needs to be done today to ensure democracy and human rights are secure for future generations.
