Being Free

ZOOM’D host John Schmidt explores the nature of “Being Free,” drawing upon the Egyptian crisis as a relevant example to understand how individual, interior stages of freedom (or lack of it) are reflected in big-picture realities of systems, governance, and collective institutions. John begins by reviewing the foundations for inner experiences of freedom, including description of three possible journeys of freedom available to us all, and then points out how nation-states and governments, in both democracies and repressive autocratic regimes, are very much manifestations of these interior states of freedom. In part two, John offers perspectives on the path to democratic freedom in Egypt: what might be going on both in front and behind the scenes, and where it all might be heading across the region at large. Join John as he continues to look at foundations for leadership and hopeful futures, all amid our era of extraordinary change.
