About this product
- DescriptionWolfgang Kraus, one of the most widely read Austrian essayists, is bravely attempts to save the individual from bureaucracy, from drowning in over-organization. He encourages the human race to fight for self-expression and self-determination and against those forces of society which erode the sense of individuality. Kraus takes a long hard look at our civilizations and discusses bureaucratic tyranny from its Asiatic and Byzantine origins to Soviet Communism. In his opinion the Western civilizations are equally guilty of condoning a certain amount of diminishing personal freedom, but he maintains that for the West all is t lost and that ever growing awareness of the concept of Human Rights, traditions of culture and the arts may prove to be the salvation of the individual.
