Ron Hubbard stated, Perhaps the most fundamental right of any being is the right to communicate. Without this freedom, other rights deteriorate.
Through the years, FREEDOM has provided a forum for those with important information who otherwise might not be able to get that data communicated to the public at large.
In the 1980s, for example, FREEDOM published several articles under the umbrella of What the Government is Not Telling You About Radiation, revealing suppressed information from experts regarding nuclear power plants, low-level radiation, nuclear weapons, and the high cost of nuclear power.
It was in FREEDOM Magazine that the late Judge Jim Garrison broke his media silence of many years. FREEDOM published information and articles by Judge Garrison, including the 1986 feature, The Killing of John Kennedy: 23 Years After, as well as a landmark investigative piece of approximately 8,000 words, The Murder Talents of the CIA, published in 1987.
Judge Garrison wrote, Contrary to the general assumption of Americans... the agencys ruthless, profligate elimination of foreign leaders is without any recent precedent. The CIAs long adventure in playing musical chairs with the leadership of other governments has been a unique phenomenon of modern history and one which has caused much of the world to harbor a deep distrust of the United States.
Between 1985 and 1987, FREEDOM also published Colonel L. Fletcher Proutys important 19-part series of articles on the history of the Vietnam War, articles which provided seminal material for the popular film JFK.
It was stories like these which caused a literary agent to write to FREEDOM and commend it as one of the most important and influential publications in the nation today when it comes to providing a forum for compelling and well-researched public policy issues which would not otherwise see the light of day. ...FREEDOM has gained a well-earned reputation for repeatedly breaking searing investigative stories which the major media initially shunned but which subsequently generated broad public debate and necessary reforms.
FREEDOM has been called one of the most important and influential publications in the nation today when it comes to providing a forum for compelling and well-researched public policy issues which would not otherwise see the light of day. It furnishes a medium for important voices silenced by oppression or black propaganda. The late Judge Jim Garrison, immortalized in the 1991 film, JFK, broke his long media silence in feature articles published in FREEDOM in 1986 and 1987.
