Freedom: A Manifesto
"Freedom: A Manifesto is not a particularly edited or organized essay, but its outcry is more relevant now than ever, and it invites both thinking about and responding to it. Mizrahi is a prominent activist in the “Black Flags” protests, and his charismatic writing on social media has gradually won him a place as one of their leaders—in thought as well as in action. His first book positions him as a public philosopher; it’s been a while since we’ve been blessed with one.” – Omri Herzog, Haaretz
“A graceful, important book.” – Hagai Hoffer
In the middle of his life, Alon Mizrahi encountered a series of tragic events whose peak was the death of his brother. Following the disaster, he began to take apart the concepts that had underpinned his thought and adopted a new worldview, revolving around a single idea: freedom.
What is freedom? What should we get released from? How can we become free? These are the questions that drive Mizrahi’s essay, which examines the concept of freedom from political, psychological, emotional, and philosophical angles.
Written in Mizrahi’s direct voice and charged with depth and momentum, Freedom: A Manifesto brings together a number of principles, weaves them into a single overarching approach, and offers a guide for independent thinking.
