By G. Zielke on February 12, 2009
This book is certainly the best training manual for the aspiring tyrant. If you ever plan to go into politics, by all mean, get it, read it, drill it, do it. You will avoid making possibly very costly mistakes in your career.

But if you are not destined to become a politician/tyrant who tries to tell others how to live, read it as well - it will make it so much clearer why the tyrants do what they do.

An excellent primer on the tricks, secrets, and psychology of how big government, power hungry, control freak politicians and their underlings ply their trade and how the "peasants" are routinely duped. If you're willing to take the red pill and see how deep the rabbit hole goes, read this book and have your eyes and mind opened.

Rose nails it, chapter after chapter. While I enjoyed his other book immensely ("The Most Dangerous Superstition"), this one flowed very well, and was just spot-on---and tongue-in-cheek made it very amusing. He nails everything: How governments solve only some problems (and poorly at that) so as to still be "needed" by the populace; creating crises or perpetuating old ones; taxing them as their price of living in a "civilized society"; Distracting the citizenry from your misdeeds. Etc. etc.

If you want to know what government is all about then this book is mandatory. If you want to quit being a slave to the gang called government then this book is mandatory. If you want to grow up and live in freedom and exercise your rights then you had better find out about the lie called government and start to think for yourself. If you don't then politely say "Yes Master" to the corpracrat that rules over you. You see the dirty little secret in politics/government that they don't ever want you to know is "everything is a corporation." Go to Dunn and Bradstreet.com and put in any government agencies/court/police department and the name and it will come up. Dunn and Bradstreet is a list of corporations.
So here is the rub. There is only two ways a corporation has control over you;
1. Through a valid contract.
2. Slavery.
And to enforce these illusions they have to use force and deception.
This book will teach you about the deception. This book is mandatory in everybody's library/brain. You will never look at politics or government the same way after reading this book.
