review The Road to Unfreedom 103 With the end of the Cold War the victory of liberal democracy was thought to be absolute Observers declared the end of history confident in a peaceful globalized future But we now know this to be premature Authoritarianism first returned in Russia as Putin developed a political system dedicated solely to the consolidation and exercise of power In the last six years it has creeped from east to west. All of the virtues depend upon truth and truth depends upon them all Final truth in this world is unattainable but its pursuit leads the individual away from unfreedom The temptation to believe what feels right assails us at all times from all directions Authoritarianism begins when we can no longer tell the difference between the true and the appealing The cynic who decides that there is no truth is the citizen who welcomes the tyrant Flipping brilliant If you decide to read only one non fiction book this year make it this one
