Report: Overall Freedom Down

A recent survey from the group Freedom House claims that overall freedom in the world is down. This, it reports, is the fourth year in a row for this trend. They call it a “global erosion of freedom.”

A large degree of the survey questions relate specifically to the treatment of people by governments. It should be noted, however, that the details of the survey’s methodology can be debated, particularly when it comes to including actions by non-state actors like businesses and private groups.
