What motivates a person to muster up courage in a time when it’s quite controversial to step out as an individual? And how many of us are there? Sienna Mae Heath has a plan to find out. In Free the People’s new series, Leaving the Left for Liberty, Sienna talks with whistleblowers, dissidents, and other alternative voices in the Western world who have left the culture of the political Left for more creative freedom, professional freedom, and personal freedom. They’re not necessarily leaving the Left for the Right. They are libertarians, independents, classically liberal, and newly outspoken voices, all cutting ties with dogma and in search of something new. No issue is off the table. We’ll explore critical race theory, woke comedy, censorship, mandates, the tango of individualism and collectivism, the desire for honest art, and more.

We need to get a good feel for the difference between persecution and debate based upon personal insights.
