Abstract

In January 2013 the joint World League for Freedom and Democracy-Asia-Pacific League for Freedom and Democracy (WLFD-APLFD) annual conference was held at the Taipei Grand Hotel. More than four hundred delegates from over one hundred countries took part in plenary sessions, World Freedom Day celebrations, International Development Committee meetings, and welcoming the impending arrival of new chapters in Nigeria and Thailand. The World League’s mission statement describes itself as an

international non-governmental organization dedicated to the aim of uniting the freedom-and-democracy-loving peoples of the entire globe without distinction as to race, nationality, location, occupation, religion, party or sex, in a joint endeavor to pursue freedom and democracy for all mankind and to preserve world peace.1

    Lodygensky and his circle were somewhat isolated within the francophone region of Switzerland. He was connected to the synodal church in exile in Serbia, renowned for its right-wing, anti-Semitic views, while most of the émigrés in France and Switzerland were related to the church exile in Paris.
