Never before in history have so many people relied on so few for the basic essentials of life.

In our present-day democracies, freedom is slowly being commodified. We have been giving our democratic governments more and more freedom while they have been busy restricting ours.

In the name of democracy and global progress laws are drafted that will outlaw simple activities that empower humanity, like growing our own food. Are we still free when we can't grow our own food anymore or when peoples livelihoods depend heavily on how we interact with the money-hungry machine "democracy" has become? It is not democracy that offers true freedom; it is reclaiming the spaces that were taken away by it.

In Freedom Ahead, we visit people who are regaining control over their lives through community-self reliance. By doing so they obtain the highest valued asset of all time: real freedom.
