Freedom and its Enemies

John Stossel of ABC News "20/20" will talk about the amazing benefits of individual freedom and free markets, and what he's learned in his 30 year journey from Portland, Oregon consumer reporter to his current job as ABC's in-house contrarian.

"Liberty," says Stossel, "is what made America great, yet little by little, Americans are giving up that liberty." He discusses:

Who are today's American heroes?

Has our fear of technology led us to reject the very freedom that has lifted more people out of poverty than any society anywhere, ever?

Might safety regulations actually injure more people than they protect?

Finally, why does the media ceaselessly hype unrealistic fears? Every day newspapers and television warn us of new, unsuspected dangers-from Alar and asbestos to cyclamates to the Audi 500. Stossel compares those risks to life's real risks.
