The cause of global awakening is the cause of all humankind.

IN THESE TRYING TIMES of climate change when authoritarian nations outnumber democracies, our best hope for freedom and a sustainable future is seeing our global oneness - and taking action. Making Global Sense reports that more than a billion of us on earth are aware of our connectivity. We're inventing a global sense movement, building critical mass for a global shift into enlightened democracy.

Award-winning author Judah Freed finds inspiration in Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Where Paine in 1776 opposed injustice from monarchy and hereditary succession, Freed opposes ancient alpha male rule and authority addiction, instead advocating mindful self rule and personal democracy. Where Paine urged revolution, Freed urges evolution. Weaving essay and memoir, Making Global Sense revives ideals from the 18th century Enlightenment to champion our 21st century enlightenment, now!
