Basics of Resistance: The Practical Freedomnista, Book 1
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:08:14 PM »
   This non-fiction book by Kit Perez and Claire Wolfe offers an outline as to how the average person can enjoy more freedom, and resist government tyranny.  It is a well written book, which covers a broad array of subjects relating to personal freedom.  It is a well documented 21st century work that provides many internet links that readers can explore if they're interested in a particular subject.  Hopefully the authors will update this work periodically as website addresses change, but then again, that's what ixquick.com or duckduckgo.com are for.  The book doesn't offer step by step instructions, but instead guides you to ideas on how improve freedom for your personal situation. 

    The section on personal security and OPSEC is excellent and it provides a good introduction on how to maintain some privacy in our surveillance prevalent culture.  It is important to note that the authors do not advocate physical violence in any form, and go to great lengths to demonstrate that they do not advocate violence.

     I did enjoy reading the book, and I certainly learned some things.  I like it enough that I'll be buying another copy for my son.  I hope the authors continue with more practical resistance books in the near future.  I rate this work as 4 out of 5 stars.

Looks most interesting.  Methinks it must be obtained.

If you need a second magazine, its time to call in air support.

I just finished this book.  While I was reading it I was reminded of Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals, which I purchased and read a couple of years ago.  Interestingly her first in the list of references is that book.

For me it is a reminder of how closely our everyday lives are monitored.  I used to be amazed at how I could look at something to buy on the net, then have it pop up as an ad on the next page I went to. But things are much different now.

We went to Sacramento CA yesterday for a friend having open heart surgery.  On the way back we stopped at a McDonald's and paid cash in the drive thru.  We ate in the parking lot and my wife's smart phone received a request for evaluation of our experience.

Now how in the world.

Zanedclark,

The reason that your wife received a ad on her phone was because she is allowing Google to access her position 24/7. She probably agreed to this when she used the GPS portion of her phone. Also, at times they ask for permission when you use the browser to look up an address.

We as a culture gleefully give up our rights and privacy.
