9781888766035: Hologram of Liberty: The Constitution's Shocking Alliance With Big Government

NEWS!

THIS 1997 EDITION IS SOLD OUT.

PLEASE ORDER THE NEW EDITION OF HOLOGRAM: ISBN 1888766131

We had two sets of Founding Fathers: the 1770s set who kicked of the Revolutionary War, and the 1780s set who agitated for a constitutional convention in 1787. Except for a few persons, they were different men -- and with different agenda.

Jefferson did not write the Constitution, but most Americans seem to believe that it was a Jeffersonian product as his Declaration of Independence.

If you've ever wondered how we came to have a leviathan federal government that was supposed to remain small and defined -- Hologram of Liberty will explain what happened.

This 1997 edition is sold out and out of print, and was replaced in June by the 2012 second edition (ISBN 1888766131), which has 100 new pages, and thoroughly covers the 10th Amendment, Firearms Freedom Acts, Obamacare, and comparisons between other constitutions. It is the last revsion that Royce will offer for any of his titles, and brings his 1997 classic fully up to date. Also, look soon for the Kindle version!

About the Author:

Kenneth W. Royce (founder of Free State Wyoming), is a shooting instructor, speaker, and the author of 12 Boston T. Party books on guns, history, law, politics, privacy, and government. His Boston's Gun Bible is a classic within the shooting community, and his novel Molon Labe! has inspired a recent relocation wave to Wyoming.

One Nation, Under Surveillance is the final title from Boston T. Party, as he begins work on other books (under Kenneth W. Royce), projects, and travel.

Look for the next book by Royce, who breaks out in a new direction with this self-help book for the remedial man:
Modules For Manhood: What Every Male Under 40 Must Know.

Review:

As Royce pointed out in his brilliant but underappreciated book The Hologram of Liberty that the Constitution was doomed at the beginning . . .

--The Evil That Men Do: Willful Submission To Illegitimate Authority, by William Buppert

This book is a well-researched, scholarly dissection of the frauds surrounding the convention, the framing and the ratification of the Constitution for the United States of America. Any thinking person who reads this book should walk away angry at the hoax that has been perpetrated on the people of this country.

. . . the material here is timeless. With a complete grasp of these ideas, it is easy to see that the left-right debate is merely a pointless sham. Powerful interests derive their power from your participation in a heated struggle, and don't want you to realize that the struggle itself is based on a lie.

It is astonishing that this book, given its age, isn't the cornerstone of every libertarian or liberty event in the country. It is disturbing that so few people involved in those movements haven't read it, or in some cases, even heard about it. I hadn't, until a couple of months ago, but I was blown away when I read it. Now, many things make more sense, including the gut-level triteness of most neo-patriots, who cheer something they haven't taken the time to fully understand. Yet, this book explains why the protections of the Constitution necessarily shrink over time, while the powers expand without bound. Boston clearly explains why our current political environment is a direct consequence of the Constitution, and not in spite of it.

--Tom Baugh, author of Starving the Monkeys: Fight Back Smarter. He is also a former Marine, patented inventor, entrepreneur, professional irritant and a homeschooling parent.

. . . I just got out of a fetal position on the floor and can't really move much. I read this book, and it hit me like a comet. Talk about a needed wake up . . . --MichaelNotMike
