I’ve recently been impressed by two new findings. The first is a book, which I had to get replaced due to a printing error (on the tune of several pages missing) and the other is a new CD I just got this week…
First, the book: Invisible Resistance to Tyranny by Jefferson Mack. This was published in 2002 and has very current information not only on ways to “hide” from the government, but more importantly, ways to make bureaucrats’ lives miserable and perhaps even make some tyrannists rethink their job descriptions…
These paragraphs from the back of the book basically sum it all up:
“Invisible Resistance to Tyranny is both a manifesto and manual for everyday citizens who are alarmed by the never-ending enroachment upon the individual freedoms recognized (not “granted) in the Bill of Rights and who want to do something about it now before it comes down to a choice between violent revolution or total submission. It outlines a progressive program of resistance that anyone can undertake without having to protest in the streets, go on hunger strikes, or take up arms.
“For anyone living in a country where the authorities limit everyone’s civil liberties while increasing their own perks and power, engaging in invisible resistance can be a giant step toward achieving greater freedom now and in the future. Read this book. You have nothing to lose but your chains.”
That about does it. This is a GREAT read! Just for the record, the customer service as Paladin Press (this book’s publisher) is AWESOME!
The album I mentioned is titled “Fade to Bluegrass” and is a bluegrass tribute to Metallica featuring Iron Horse. Kick ass! Anyone who’s a fan of Iron Horse, Bluegrass music, or Metallica will LOVE this one! It rocks (er…plucks) hard. There are ten songs highlighted on this album, covering some of the best music Metallica has produced to date.
My favorites include “Unforgiven,” “Enter the Sandman,” “One,” and “The Four Horsemen.” The CD and jacket cover are great parodies of Metallica’s “Black Album.” In fact, I’d say that this tribute album beats out Apocolyptica (four Dutchmen on cello playing Metallica) as the coolest “unusual tribute” to Metallica I’ve heard! These guys are bad ass.
Hearing a nasal country singer spouting “Ehhhxit liiight. Eyenter niiiight. Tayyyyke mah hayand. We’re oaff to neaver-neaver layaand!” is worth every penny spent on this one! Check out the song samples at the Amazon.com link to the left.
