Format: Paperback
For all those who believe that "we must have government," this book will convince you otherwise. The basis of government's power is the "justice system;" anyone who controls this can do virtually anything they want. Stevens shows how the "system" is a hoax and indeed, how all of government and politics is nothing but rule by violence. No, I don't mean that if "we" just vote in Party X or Candidate X, "government will be more responsive." Government, by its very nature, will never be free of corruption; in fact, governments must be corrupt. If you can't face this fact, you can't face reality. This is a book that no politician, bureaucrat or anyone who derives their power from the political system will even address.

The bottom line is this: governments make their money by violence or threat thereof; they admit that they're not obligated or have no duty to do anything for you or anyone in return for this money. Why does anyone tolerate this?

Marc Stevens has compiled information that will change the way you view the political and legal institutions that attempt to rule your life. After reading this book, you will never be able to think of Judges, Police Officers or lawyers in the same way again. Mr. Stevens masterfully illustrates the fraud that continues to be perpetrated upon the unsuspecting American public. I highly recommend this monumental work.

Stevens tells how if you ever find yourself dealing with a bureaucrat you have already essentially lost. Whether it's your time or money, they have zapped away some of your productivity. He tells why you might not wanna just pay whatever ransom they're demanding. If they are going to take away your time, you may as well counter it by asking them questions as to exactly what entitles them to your productivity being as you were just minding your own business and not harming anybody.

I did not give this book five stars as the writing style seemed quite repetitive and one wonders whether the author could have been a touch more pragmatic, but none of that should efface the fact that he brings to the fore many points that bear pondering. As a non-Statist, the man is in line with the thinking of Lysander Spooner and Andrew Galambos both of whom are referenced in the book. Even if one thinks that the man is a trouble maker, it is the trouble makers that help secure our freedoms. This book is highly recommended in spite of its flaws.

Marc does an excellent expose' on the (in)justice system that has taken over in America today. Hopefully this work will be read by more of us that need to be awakened so that we can do what is necessary to get the government back to the republic our founding fathers tried to give us that we had for a short time. Even though it's not a guide on how to win in court it is a good place to start in finding out that we can and should do something about overcoming the corruption that has taken over the court system in our society by becoming educated through other avenues of study that WILL arm us to that end. He shows in this work that what we think we have in the court system IS NOT the truth and is, what I believe, what most people secretly suspect really is "a criminal enterprise".

Format: Paperback
I finished the Marc Stevens book "Adventures in Legal Land" today and I feel the need to write a small report about the impressions it left on me.

I realize that no one is asking for my opinion, least of all the author. But I still feel the need to share. I truly appreciate what Marc Stevens is attempting to do in his book, if I am to understand him correctly, by demonstrating the Orwellian nature of our legal sytem, and the inherent Catch 22's of our statutes and laws. I want his message to spread successfully, and rational debate to ensue. Which is why I feel the need to review his book in such a lambast-manner. Surely his opponents will be no less harsh.

First off, I had a bit of trouble trying to establish Mr. Steven's intent in the book. Within the first few pages he decrees that he is not anti-state nor anti-government, but then proceeds in such a farcical and sarcastic manner when discussing the state and its so-called legal system, that a shadow of suspicion is cast on his former claim. If he were to just do away with the sarcasm and double-talk and bluntly assert, "I am anti-state, and these are my reasons why" then my measure of respect for him would increase. As it stands, I can't help but feel that his introductory admissions of not being anti-state smack of insincerity, and perhaps a desire to not ruffle the reader, who may have picked the book up in passing and is perusing only the first few pages. Why pull punches or masquerade your true identity?

Secondly, when reading a work of non-fiction, there are two predominant elements that are note-worthy: Form and Function. As I said, I was having a bit of time trying to establish Mr. Steven's intent, or the "function" of his book.

It's a great, easy, fast read. Makes sense of what is utterly obscene - that is, the world of Legal Land in America and abroad.
