Editorial Reviews


As Royce pointed out in his brilliant but under-appreciated book, 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 Constitutional Convention, the framing and the ratification of the Constitution of 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 unalienable rights protections of the Constitution necessarily shrink over time, while the big government Police state 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.

. . . 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

About the Author

Kenneth W. Royce (founder of Free State Wyoming in the American Redoubt), is a firearms shooting instructor, speaker, and the author of 13 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 strategic relocation wave to the Free State of 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.[1]
