Today's Americans are as dumb as never before. They don't care for their liberties anymore. There are no more public demonstrations, no more organized resistanse to massive abuse of power going on everyday in America. Compulsory public education has produced its intended results, which are: dumb mass of population, possessing some basic business and industrial skills, but no critical, analytical thinking whatsoever.
Work, booze, TV, game, maybe sex, then work, booze, TV...that's all there is to our Freedom, which we want so passionately our government to defend for us!
Yes, Claire Wolfe is not always fully logical and consistent. Say, she urges everyone to learn to live in poverty, despise wealth, work as little as possible just to be able to satisfy basic needs. And also she suggests to stack up on non-perishable, even military food supplies, refresh those supplies as needed, gather and hide in different places various high quality weapons, support generously some human rights organizations, - all of which require signifficant cash resources.
But the reading nevertheless is important, fascinating and a great refreshment for our media-hypnotized, crazed and dumbed minds. Buy it! Read it! Share it! Also get the "Don't Shoot The Bastards (yet)" by the same author. Find and read Dumbing of America; Justice for None; Race to Incarcerate; Lost Rights: The Destruction of The American Liberty;...
Don't let your soul die before you body does!

A word of caution to readers of "Customer Comments" -- be very wary of reviewers who label Claire and her work as "right-wing". Claire is about as right-wing as she is left-wing as she is chicken-wing. Note that her labelers, as a class, are schizophrenic in their 'philosophy', favoring collectivist solutions as a means of dealing with the problem of the loss of individual liberty.
Whether one agrees with Claire on methods or not, recognize that this little primer is a useful tool for anyone who is just (re)discovering the concept of individual liberty. (One can only hope that someday her detractors here will be able to do so.) The book creates a whole set of useful ideas that can either be acted on, or merely used to expand one's thinking about freedom.
Claire has historically preferred to disassociate herself from -- rather than engage -- the forces of evil. We miss her already "in the field" (she has recently chosen to pursue her own way without sharing further with us her thoughts on 'getting there'). So read her three books, and cherish the ideas contained therein. Who knows when we'll hear from Claire again?

You cannot judge this book by its cover. The title may seem 'fringy', but the content is more mainstream (or should be) than you might imagine. When I first saw the book in the catalog, it was the cover that piqued my interest. If I'd known what was between the covers, I would have ordered more copies. Each of the 101 ideas listed stands on its own merits. It is not a book that would appeal to the paranoid fringe, or mad-bombers. The ideas are well thought out, and persuasive. Once you pick it up, you will not put it down until you've finished it. The reading is quick and thoroughly entertaining. The content is informative, but more importantly, it will make you think. We all owe it to ourselves to read a copy of this book at least once.
My only complaint about the book is that it isn't "1001 Things to do 'Til the Revolution"
The price you pay for this book will be money well spent!

In her famous opening line to this book, Claire Wolfe says that "America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." And by the bastards she mostly means the federal government.
She then proceeds to list 101 things to do until the inevitable time comes to shoot the bastards. If I actually followed her advice, I probably wouldn't be writing this--certainly not under my name. But like Wolfe notes about a certain kind of libertarian, I'm probably more of a thinker and less of a doer. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book. Above all, I think hers is a motivational book to get us through the awkward stage.
Besides inspiration, this book also serves as a reference with lots of good book and periodical recommendations where you can better immerse yourself on the topics. Much of the advice is on survival, so if you're looking for a simple primer, this might help. One criticism is that although Wolfe says it's too late to work within the system, she encourages readers to join gun rights and privacy groups that, it seems to me, are trying to change the system.
But in the end, Wolfe walks her talk and I respect her for that. Her passion about liberty comes through and it is very heartening. If you like this book, she also keeps a great blog.

Do you believe that the federal government is too large, too powerful and is simply spinning out of control? Claire Wolfe does, and she gives the like-minded a survival manual for the late 20th Century in "101 Things to do 'Til the Revolution". It provides the reader with a comprehensive list of Things to do to protect yourself and your family, as well as peaceful measures you can take to try to stop the leviathan while we have a chance. An informative and entertaining read. Highly recommended. If, however, you believe that government is a benevolent entity trying to help you and yours, I suggest "It Takes A Village" by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
