    I also think the author's main point is that it's impossible to overcome the tyranny of the state through politics, so it's only when citizens turn to decentralized solutions from the free market that will prove superior to the "solutions" the government provides, that the state will fall.

    I am not trying to imply it's a breakthrough text in Libertarian thought. It is, however very dense and comprehensive covering many topics from a libertarian perspective. Much of it we already know, beginning with chronicling the history and abuse of the state he calls "The Regime". How oppressive it is in America with fines, tax codes, regulations, etc vs other countries. Then he goes over ways to improve your health, social relationships, and the power of decentralization to free people from the state. At the very least, for RPF member's it's worth a glance or brief scan IMO. That particular portion on private property stands out as being out of place in his piece. I should say, though, that a lot of statistics and statist horror stories are citied. But lacks academic citation like Hyek, Mises, Bastiat, etc. Which would explain the gap in thought on private property.

    Ok, this is a LONG article detailing about how politics is a racket, and ways of decentralization to escape the racket. It's a whole mix of philosophy, history, finance, health tips,socialization tips, etc. Overall, I think it's a great read with good tips. It is VERY dense, and will need several reading sessions to get through it all. There a lot of software programs listed that I didn't know about before. But I think his discussion on property rights misses the mark. For example, how does the corrupt military contractor making more than someone in a poor developing nation make property rights a "joke" as he puts it? And, "Because virutally all tangible goods (or the natural resources used to manufacture them) are to some measure tainted by extortion, fraud, slavery, or outright theft, there’s no practical way to “set things right.” ... "If we buy goods produced by regime-approved slave labor, are we the 100% pure and true “rightful owners” of those goods? It is what it is, but it certainly isn’t black and white." Well, we can choose not to buy from companies that use slave labor. What do you guys think?
