The American Freedom Alliance is a non-partisan, non-profit organization which promotes, defends and upholds Western values and ideals. AFA sponsors conferences, publishes opinions, distributes information and creates networking groups to identify threats to Western civilization and to motivate, educate and unite citizens in support of that cause.
The five threats of particular concern to AFA are:
- Global governance – the erasure of national sovereignty and the various institutions created to centralize a number of aspects of governance at supra-national levels are threats not only to the United States but also to Western values.
- Radical environmentalism – from the “climate change” myths to Agenda 21 to various other “environmentalist” undertakings, it is clear that there is an agenda that is anti-science in the furtherance of ever-greater government control over increasing aspects of our lives.
- Islamization of the West – the increasing number of Islamic terrorist attacks here in the West is only one aspect of Islamization. The effect on the culture, on demographics, on legislation, on the very nature of the rule of law is tremendous and the consequences are already being felt most acutely in Europe but also here in the United States.
- Biased media – the damage that our biased media has wrought is hard to fathom. Without agenda-drive media, none of the above-mentioned issues would have become the very real threats that they are. Highlighting the dishonesty of our news media is at the forefront of what AFA does.
- Destructive academia – our K-12 schools as well as our universities have become vehicles for indoctrination rather than education, and their nearly-monolithic viewpoint is, as is the media, helping to advance these same above-mentioned threats.
The American Freedom Alliance aims to build an international coalition of citizens of the West which involves writers, academic thinkers, and citizens from all around the world, who will join together through seminars, conferences, publications and activist networks, to promote and protect moral values, democracy and freedom.
Statement of Purpose
It is affirmed that modern civil society thrives on freedom of religion and the freedom of choice. Without these freedoms the human personality and its potential for goodness, creativity and altruism are stifled. To the extent that these freedom are denied, the opportunities for oppression, coercion, and totalitarianism are mutiplied exponentially.
