Möglich wird dieser Diskurs durch die Verdrängung einer spezifischen Vorstellung von Freiheit, der dieses Buch gewidmet ist. Freiheit wird zur organisierten Lüge, die politisches Handeln ausschließt. Der Konflikt zwischen Freiheit und Sicherheit entpuppt sich dabei als nur scheinbar unabwendbar, als phantasm einer maßgeblich an Prävention und Absicherung orientierten Gesellschaftspolitik. Den Autoren gelingt es mit ihrer examine, das Verständnis des Problemkreises zu erweitern. Darüber hinaus betreten sie theoretisches Neuland, indem sie anhand der Arendt schen Philosophie eine Konzeption der Lüge weiterentwickeln, die bislang sowohl in der Literatur zur Lüge als auch in der Arendt-Debatte nur marginal gewürdigt wurde.
