The Death of Freedom describes how personal liberty has been eroded and undermined by successive Labour and Conservative governments over the last fifty years. Personal choices that were once a... More > private matter are subject to increasing government meddling. We are now prohibited from smoking in public, driving without wearing a seat belt, and riding a motorcycle without a crash helmet. Liberties that we used to take for granted, like the freedom of protest and the right to trial by jury, have been trampled on and watered down. We have also seen the proliferation of surveillance systems, the growth of DNA databases, the watering down of habeas corpus, prohibitions against “hate speech”, attempts to introduce identity cards, as well as the introduction of many intrusive and humiliating security procedures at airports and at ferry terminals.< Less

Do you remember the time when you sat your GCSE or O-level examinations? What about at A-level or at university? Maybe you don't even like to be reminded that examinations even exist. The whole... More > thought of a single set of questions on paper determining your destiny for life is rather unsettling, isn't it?

America's drinking laws contradict everything that America is supposed to be about. America is one of only a few countries with a drinking age as high as 21. Only a handful of other countries have... More > such a high age limit. The drinking age has become a ritual, with twenty-first birthday parties being seen as a rite of passage, an event that marks a person's transition to adulthood. Underage drinking has been a target for draconian government intrusions. SWAT teams raid college campuses, police bust teenage parties, and even people in their 70s can be asked to show their IDs when buying alcohol from some shops and bars. There has never been any intelligent debate about alcohol. There has only been confusion and emotive responses. Once a substance is legal and sold in many shops, it is both futile and highly problematic to attempt to seem tough by saddling the public with licensing laws, age restrictions, and regulations on opening hours and the price of alcohol.< Less

Challenge 25 has had a profound impact on our everyday lives. For most of the time, people can quietly forget about health and safety regulations, CCTV cameras, and smoking bans. However, it is now... More > impossible for most people to go about their lives without seeing those offensive and insulting “UNDER 25?” notices on a daily basis.
