Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0987553003, Paperback)

Although it plays a central role in all our lives, few people take the time to understand the modern state. Why does the state exist? What is its purpose? And how does the citizen fit into its scheme?

Follow author Ramy Tadros as he reveals, from a libertarian perspective, the fundamental truths behind the state. Even though the book focuses on the state abuse of Egypt's Coptic minority since the 2011 Egyptian revolution, the findings apply to other nations and populations. State-bred oppression and injustice can threaten all individuals.

This book will also show you how politicians can abuse democracy. And you will gain an insight into the six key ingredients that shape a good society and limit a state's power. Finally, you will discover how the state, by unleashing the war of the words, can strip you of your freedoms or fool you into embracing false freedoms.
