FREEDOM Launched in London at the Royal Geographical Society with Sir Bob Geldof

 

Jeremy Griffith’s summa masterpiece, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition — the book that saves the world — was launched in London on 2 June 2016 at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) to an invitation-only audience.

 

The keynote address to this significant milestone in the human journey was given by Sir Bob Geldof, whose presentation wonderfully encapsulated his great concern for humanity as well as his appreciation of where the answers to the world’s problems must come, with the Irish musician and humanitarian saying, “I’ve never felt the world more threatening, more fractious, more fissiparous, more febrile…We need to think, we need new ideas, we need proselytisers, we need obsessed people, which I think Jeremy is. We need him to be questioned. We need ‘FREEDOM’ to be argued, we need it to be read and talked about and understood. It may be right, it may be wrong. But you need someone as committed as Jeremy to trying to understand what gets us here…That is why I love the Royal Geographical Society. You talk to these thinking people, they may agree, they may disagree, but you’ll have set some little spark alight to make them think afresh, and make them think differently. Jeremy did it with me, I hope he does it with you.”

 

Thanking Sir Bob for his extraordinary honesty in describing the plight of the world, Jeremy then went on to present the all-exciting, all-important explanation of the human condition, explaining that “All the ailments the world suffers from are symptoms of the deeper issue of the human condition. Which means that to fix the world we have to fix the human condition, and that’s what ‘FREEDOM’ does. It solves the underlying, real issue that’s been plaguing the human race.”

 

It was a magnificent event for which Tim Macartney-Snape travelled especially from an expedition in Nepal to serve as Master of Ceremonies; as our banners at the RGS proudly stated, the launch represented the culmination of humanity’s ‘Ultimate Exploration’!

 

We need FREEDOM to be argued, we need it to be read and talked about and understood. It may be right, it may be wrong. But you need someone as committed as Jeremy to trying to understand what gets us here. (Sir Bob Geldof)
