"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." -- opening lines of 101 Things To Do 'Til The Revolution by Claire Wolfe
This is the original-the underground classic from a then-unheralded writer that sold out within a month of its first printing. Now in its updated fourth printing, 101 Things To Do Til The Revolution is still helping people liberate themselves, prepare for challenging times and monkeywrench an increasingly tyrannical system.
It's irreverent, practical, humorous, dead serious, sassy and above all filled with useful resources for people who want to be free.
From the dedication:
his book is based upon the premise that, when government turns bad, the best people ultimately become criminals. The people don't change; the laws
do. Initiative, dissent, individual pleasures and exercise of one's basic rights become "crimes"....
The ideal citizen of a tyrannical state is the man or woman who bows in silent obedience in exchange for the status of a well-cared-for herd animal. Thinking people become the tyrants worst enemies.
Before their thunder roars, there is a period of anticipation, in which more occurs than the literal-minded tyrant can ever understand. A few overt acts of sedition shatter the heavy peace. But the greater force, unrecognized, rolls forward in near silence, as millions of individuals quietly withdraw their consent from the state. The pundits call it apathy.They could not be more wrong.
That time is now. And we are those people.
This book is dedicated to you, the enemy of the state.
