Glenn Beck interviewed Chris Stewart, co-author of Miracle of Freedom:  Seven Tipping Points that Saved the World and within hours the book had leaped to number 9 on Amazon’s best seller list. See this interview below.

Authors Chris Stewart, a world-record setting pilot and Air Force veteran, and Ted Stewart, a federal judge, make a strong case that fewer than five percent of all people who have ever lived on the earth have lived under conditions that we would consider “free.” So where did freedom come from, and how are we fortunate enough to experience it in our day?

Could it be that these historic events were all in preparation for America to become the torch bearer for liberty and freedom?

Taken together, the accounts show that the march toward freedom was never assured, that at any of these critical points in history, the tide of freedom might have been turned. Even now, freedom is a relatively unstable condition. At present, only 22 nations in the world today have a democracy that has survived for more than 50 years—a single generation.
