Molôn Labé! is Kenneth W. Royce's first fiction book (cover credited to pen-name "Boston T. Party"). The novel deals with the migration of freedom-minded individuals to the state of Wyoming, where they take political power through the use of the ballot box.

Synopsis

Molôn Labé! has encouraged people to relocate to Wyoming for their own immediate success in achieving personal freedom, as well as for long-term hopes of bolstering the general climate of liberty in the Cowboy State.


"After a decade of retaking their stolen freedoms, the people of Wyoming (many of them newcomers) are forced to finally confront their jealous masters in the U.S. Government. Can a lone, courageous state successfully resist federal tyranny, or has the Bill of Rights been reduced to a myth? Can an allegedly free people act free, or is our liberty just a 4th of July farce?

These issues weigh heavily on the shoulders of Governor James Wayne Preston, a decorated Desert Storm Marine helo pilot. Elected in 2014 on the Laissez-Faire Party ticket, he enjoys nearly full support of the legislature to return Wyoming to a long-lost era of liberty. But how far can he and the people of his state go before Washington, D.C. feels compelled to act? Will Wyoming's free and independent course reach actual secession? Will President Melvin Connor suppress the maverick Western state with federal troops? Will anybody come to Wyoming's aid?

Molon Labe! is a fictional account of a real-world blueprint for a free state initiative focused on Wyoming. If enough freedom-loving individuals will relocate there under a useful pattern, they can "liberate" the Cowboy State on many levels. In Wyoming we could truly enjoy our rights of gun ownership, privacy, schooling, health and diet, unrestricted travel, and property. Boston shows us how it actually can be done!"


Explanation of the novel's title

The expression "molon labe" is ancient Greek for "Come and take them!", the defiant reply of King Leonidas to the Persian demand before the Battle of Thermopylae for his 300 Spartans to lay down their arms in surrender.

In the United States, the phrase is becoming a modern-day Second Amendment cry of resolve never to disarm in the face of compulsion.

Awards and nominations

Molôn Labé! was a semi-finalist for the Libertarian Futurist Society's Prometheus Award of 2004.[1]
