The story concerns a large number of brilliant thinkers, programmers, financiers, artists and others who have noticed that the current form of government is little more than a glorified protection scheme which starts wars and impedes human progress. They note that if it is immoral for one man to take from another, it is immoral for a group, gang, or government to take from or dictate to free adults. They notice that the government is increasing its thugish intrusions into every aspect of our lives, mostly to get money so they can continue to buy votes and stay in power. Where the book was unsatisfying was in the ease with which the brilliant ones were able to circumvent rules and taxes by using unbreakable encryption on the Internet. It sounded vaguely plausible, but would not really have had a chance.
The book should be on the same shelf as Atlas Shrugged, Unintended Consequences, Moulon Labe, and others which point out our servitude to a bloated and incompetent government. It has some clear thinking and convincing arguments, but it is not a "how to get free" manual.

Then this book is well worth your while. It's sort of philosophy in a story. Reminiscent of Atlas Shrugged, but with characters that are more real, relatable and less preachy. Read morePublished 23 months ago by emrm
Rosenberg tells a story requiring solid thought and an open mind. His ideas are provocative and sound. It remains to be seen how prescient they might be.Published on June 18, 2013 by John Amico
