What is the “Liberty of The Truth”? What is "The Truth of the Love of Liberty” and “The Lie of fearful lustful selfishness”? Which one would you choose? Do you believe people who say you do not have the power to choose how to think and act? The author wants to motivate people to ask these questions and choose what is invaluable to build a country of Justice and Liberty.

The contents of this book written by Jason L. Krone offer a simple message explained in complex terms. In the beginning, I really had to make an effort to grasp what he means, but once I understood his philosophy, it was easier to make sense of the writing. Truth Loves Liberty is born of the writer’s personal experiences in life. On the one hand, Jason remembers believing in The Lie that he had no choice when he became dependent on prescription drugs, which was followed by an addiction to smoking as well as alcohol and repeatedly landing in jail for his activities. On the other hand, the law tried to make him understand The Truth that he had to take responsibility for what he did. Finally, the dilemma was resolved when he chose to grow up, believe in The Truth, and be released from being addicted and enslaved to the self.

According to the author, people are addicted to self by default but can choose to make honest choices to overcome being negative or selfish. I like his statement that “a half-truth is a whole lie. The Truth is always whole and never a half-lie.” It contains a deeply spiritual meaning. I appreciate how Jason goes on to explain why addiction to self is related to The Lie “because one billionaire could feed all the starving children for 1,000 years or more.” In 202 pages, the text includes other topics such as conscience, consciousness, sex, lust, motivations, love, fear, hope, humility, and forgiveness, etc.

I felt uncomfortable with the author’s preaching tone. I also fear that some of his statements may be misunderstood. To prevent this, it is important for readers to grasp the core message of The Truth vs The Lie and read the diverse themes with this lens. The book is quite dense in content, and it is not possible to offer a synopsis of everything in this review.

After a thoughtful and critical analysis of the contents as mentioned above, I am pleased to give Truth Loves Liberty a rating of 3 out of 4 stars. I found several grammatical errors that make it more difficult to understand the author’s message. However, it will bring hope to people who have been through similar situations in life. I recommend it to counselors, teachers, pastoral and social workers, politicians, and every adult who desires to live according to The Truth.

Sounds like the truth shall set you free. I am glad the author got free from his addictions as well as the idea that he had no choice. Great review and thanks!

A simple message told in complex language is generally not the best start. I appreciate that once you got it, you really got it, but I wonder how many people would have the dedication you did to working your way through it and really understanding what the author was saying?

It is true that people convince themselves they have no choice. The author's journey presents an important truth that could be helpful to many, but they need to be at a place to be able to believe his message. It takes courage to admit that we are believing the lie. Great review.

The attention-getting title made me think politics, but it appears to be a memoir. A memoir where Krone shares a valuable message from a complex perspective. I think I will give this book a try. Thank you for your insightful review!
