This ebook consists of a summary of the ideas, viewpoints and facts presented by Nathan Sharansky in his book "The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror". This summary offers a concise overview of the entire book in less than 30 minutes reading time. However this work does not replace in any case Nathan Sharansky's book. Sharansky argues that human rights and democracy go together, and he also says that promoting peace and stability in the world is equivalent to spreading freedom.
Therefore he argues that societies based on fear cannot compete with free societies and neither can they sustain themselves once their citizens have tasted freedom.
