The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom

Thetrap_episode1_laingThe series consists of three one-hour programmes which explore the concept and definition of freedom, specifically, „how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today’s idea of freedom.”
