Somewhere in my 30's I had the awareness that things do not have to be the way we have been socially engineered to accept. I still can't imagine ever getting toward a totally non-statist system, but perhaps I'm too old and future generations will not be so stuck in their world-views and patterned thinking if we get this conversation going.
I did not take off stars for the self-publishing formatting issues and there is still some editing to be done. I did not see the authors definition of "anarchism" and recommend that it is added in a future edition as the contemporary definition usually includes violence, which I'm certain is not intended here. The authors fairly qualify the errors and still write and express their points very well. I have yet to vet the Islamic history that came as quite a surprise and is fairly general with confusing dates or time periods.
Any practitioner of unadulterated ancient wisdom traditions will recognize the value in this book. What we are experiencing in our lives, including politically, is a reflection of who we are individually and we are doomed to continue to repeat the same mistakes over and over unless we each take responsibility for our own individual [spiritual] consciousness. The Kingdom of Heaven is within.

With the above in mind, I found myself in desperate need of something that was mature, open-minded, sincere, creative and, importantly, willing to discuss ways in which those with a common desire to see the removal of the state might cast aside their differences and explore ways in which they might co-exist, focusing on what they have in common, rather than what divides them. And I'd all but given up hope until I came across these wonderful books!
Here we have a couple of guys who've done their homework, who understand the problem and have the insight and foresight to adopt an holistic and mutually beneficial approach (even if your an individualist!) and for their contribution I applaud them wholeheartedly!
I'd say their ideas really start to come together by the third book, but strongly recommend reading the other two first as they all follow on nicely from each other.
What I also love about these guys is their own acknowledgement that they aren't brilliant writers because, in all honesty they're not (not that they are in any way terrible and they definitely get better as they go along!) Yes, there's the odd typo, and the books aren't perfect - but that's a massive part of their appeal and this is true 'indie' writing - bold, brave unpolished, unpretentious and completely devoid of the affectation that spoils the work of so many of the contemporaries.
Thanks guys, I for one am truly and deeply grateful to you for restoring my faith in anarchy, our one and only last hope once properly practiced and understood - something these books make a huge contribution towards us achieving.
