From a 2011 Lecture by the Author:

A Counter Narrative of [modernity’s] historical narrative "liberty," [that is in the] late 18th & 19TH century the masses, yearning to be free, threw off the shackles of monarchial & ecclesiastical tyranny, and for the 1st time in western history breathed in the fresh air of republics that they had created as an exercise of their own will. Western man now enjoys a degree of personal, economic, & religious freedom hither to unknown in the history of western man.
The book is a kind of forensic [analysis] of how the radical elites enflamed with a hatred of monarchy and revealed religions animated by the thought of the so called modern enlightenment and the radical enlightenment used agitprop, stage provocations, propaganda of various kinds and operating mainly in key urban centers, Boston in the United States, Paris in France, were able to incite a sufficient number of populace to rebel against the established authority and then they would declare themselves a provisional government, hold conventions, issue documents formalizing their own authority which no one gave them; they would assert that authority over the masses and perhaps have a publicide or two to memorialize the fait accompli, and all attempts to escape from these new republic governments would be met with brute force where ever necessary, slaughters would be involved as with Vendée & the American civil war, anyone who attempted to withdraw from these governments would be slaughtered and these new republics would be separated from the church and they would preside over a steady decline of public and private morality and paradoxically they would also invest the citizen with a catalog of individual rights and as this catalog of rights expands the actual freedom of the individual contracts and the power of the government grows so we end up with a society of atomized individuals helpless before an all-powerful central government. And the outcome is what they call Liberty.
