Yep ... many of us have read it.

The author is a member here BTW http://www.thehighroad.org/member.php?u=25546 (assuming thats the actual Boston T. Party and not just someone using his name).

Its a good one but the better books in that genre are Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matt Bracken (also a member here) and Unintended Consequences by John Ross (who I also think may be a member here).

Yes i have.
Its a good book. A very libertarian author. So if you hate libertarian ideas you might not like it. Its a fun read about rebels with a cause. One of more freedom. The book also makes the events sound like they could happen for real.


Read it, at the very least you have some firewood.

I was perusing Amazon for the John Ross book, as he was the guest on Shooting Gallery today. Was impressed with a guy that can fire a .50 BMG from his shoulder!!! :what:

I now have a 7 book wishlist on Amazon. Gotta find them cheaper.

The fake 'Playboy Interviews' in Molon Labe are excellent!! You must also check out Boston'e Gun Bible( A must have). John Ross's book Unintended Consequences was even MORE enjoyable!

Never read Molon Labe, though I've read Enemies Foreign and Domestic and Unintended Consequences. Also, check out "Lights Out" - a quick google for "shtf fiction lights out" should turn it up in the first hit. Someone on here and arfcom wrote it, can't recall the handle right now. Halffast?

EFD is OK - didn't care for the ending so much; it was a bit of a downer and likely all too realistic to what would really happen. His sequel looks better, IMO, but I've not read it yet (is it out yet?).

UC is really, really slow for the first 150 or so pages, and is written quite verbosely. It starts getting good right about then, though, and has a lot of history intertwined. It's not pulp fiction, and very well done with incredibly well developed characters.

Yeah, and I am going to take your opinion seriously....:scrutiny:

Why don't you provide some evidence for the claims you made about someone?

Boston knows what he is talking about. He's written 11 or so books, so based upon the quality of his writing, you've got a lot of gaul talking trash.

When you get a few more posts under your belt (like more than 6, Troll) and have something useful and substantiated to say, then come back. For now, pound sand.:cuss:

As books and writing go, Unintended Consequences and the Enemies soon-to-be-trilogy are much better written, have better character development and are much more "readable".

I thought about 50% of Molon Labe read like a dry policy statement from the State Department. He could have done without at least 1/2 of the "preaching" and still got his points across.

Boston T Party (Kenneth Royce) writes some great non-fiction.

His books “You and the Police," "Boston's Gun Bible," "Bulletproof Privacy,” and "Boston on Surviving Y2K" are extremely well written and interesting to read. His non-fiction writing is well organized and filled with concise, useful information. His prose is light and easy to read. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and actually pens in a number of great jokes.

However, the book Molon Labe, leaves a lot to be desired in a fiction work. The book is more like a manual and less like a novel. The characters and their interactions are terrible cliché and the plot is just as obvious.

Honestly, the book isn’t dreadful, but it is far from great and unless you’re specifically interested in the topic matter it would be hard to read.

That said, Molon Labe is leaps and bounds better than most of the survival fiction posted on the boards.

First - yes, lets kindly leave the ad-homs out of the discussion please. You have a beef with the man, take it to PMs or email.

Now that business is over.... :)

Given that its focus is on a relatively peaceful state-based solution to "the Federal Problem" I must confess, I think the path described in the book is far preferable to that in UC or EFAD... it's one of those things I'd like to see work, though I'm still dubious as to whether it could.

The more I think on it, it's a qualitatively different book than the other two, focusing more on strategies and principles than the straight-out "SHTF" feel of the other two. So it pretty much depends on what you're looking for. While I might not put it at the very top of the pile for "things to read on a rainy weekend" it's still definitely worth a looksee.

Funny thing is i agree with you on the book having a good portion (personal dont think as much as half) as a policy statement, but i sure liked reading it, not dry to me. :D


The Gun Bible is a good read, i look at is as a book that covers the basics of everything about shooting and things related. It does a good job of teaching you a bit about lots of different areas, and is a good refresher, or as an intro into the world of "guns". I must admit thou that some areas are covered very throughly in the book, and not just skimmed over. Well worth the money, to have all that info in one place.


Thanks to others for bring up, Unintended Consequences and the Enemies soon-to-be-trilogy. Looks like a good read, ordering Unintended Consequences tonight.

The scenario is a long-shot, but is possible with sufficient
relocators and some organization. There's no reason why Wyoming
could not be eventually governed by freedom-minded folks of the
shooting culture. There are certainly enough of us, however scattered
about.


Regarding comments about how Molôn Labé! in some places reads
like a nonfiction manual, that aspect was unavoidable. It is less of a
novel than most novels, because its primary character wasn't even a
character at all, but the plan/execution of an idea. For all the book's
shortcomings, Molôn Labé! is energizing many people to give
Wyoming a serious look. Hundreds have joined the FSW and dozens
of them have already relocated. That my book was/is pivotal in getting
actual movers to Wyoming is incredibly humbling to me even three
years later.

Whatever happens there will certainly be a longer and bumpier road
than in my story, but if relocation numbers really begin to swell we
can accomplish quite a lot and finally not feel outvoted and marginal
everywhere else.

Purchased Molon Labe on a lark at a gun show in Indianapolis. While I admit to poking a little good natured fun at the Free Staters (*kicks rocks* maybe I said that they should look into locating in that other utopia, New Harmony, Indiana:D), I did find the work intellectually stimulating and passed the book along to my brother.

Hmmm, Wyoming, huh? Do they play euchre, basketball and shoot guns there?:scrutiny: :D

+1.

Boston's Gun Bible is very informative and enjoyable. I also enjoyed Molôn Labé!. As some have said, it gets wordy at times--but that kinda goes with the territory. The book is intended to preach aspects of free-market libertarianism. Most books with a message err on the side of verbosity.

Hopefully it isn't a spoiler, but it's interesting that the book included a bit of nuclear blackmail. It raises the interesting point that a peaceful secession would be difficult if the administration were willing to exterminate the secessionists--just as the insurgencies in Iraq, Afghanistan and Gaza would be ended quickly if the US or Israel were willing to commit genocide. Secession--and insurgency--assumes that there's a limit to the brutality of the oppressor.

Boston, pleased to meet you! You've actually motivated me to look at FSW, which is saying a lot considering I'm an arthritic, overweight computer programmer.

Nice to meet you. I have not read any of your books yet, but will take a look at the Cheyenne Library to see if they have any. I had to get UC shipped down from Sheridan Library...had to pay a late fee because I didn't want to return it :-)

So far I love living in Wyoming. Being a Military transplant from over eight years of hell in New Jersey, Wyoming is a total opposite experience. I have bought and sold more firearms since July of last year then the entire time I lived in NJ. I just applied for my CWP last week...would have been unheard of for a mere civilian in NJ.

I love the wide open spaces here, and am always looking for some place new to explore. I'm like a kid in a candy store. Here are some pictures of the areas I like to hang out in that are fairly close to Cheyenne. (http://hanzerik.sh.nu/gallery/)

This book is actually a very good read although the first 300 pages somewhat drag. The pace picks up pretty quickly after that.

Only two factual errors in the book.... The battleship moving sideways with the firing of the mains, the other one I forget.

Nevertheless, highly recommended, and I did read "Enemas, foreign and domestic", the "Black Arrow", and pretty much everything else. "Unintended Consequences" is the best of the bunch.

These are some of my favorites. I apologize if not all the links are active but you should be able to locate most with the info provided.

Many of the books with the best messages are not the strongest in plot, style or character development. It seems that one can tell a great story with style and little or no message but conveying an important message makes telling a strong and entertaining story in epic style a difficult task. If I noted somewhere that the style was weak then know that the book was included because it had an important message but that most shee-people won’t read it for simple entertainment purposes.

Really good book on the outdoors. David Alloway worked in Big Bend for many years and is the only non-Australian to successfully cross the Great Outback Desert on foot. Much of what you read in other books has not been tested by the authors and it could get you killed. Chapter on solar stills is worth the price of the book. What little I have done or experienced (compared to David) in remote places supports the info that I read in this book.

Hard to find book. Details construction of a safe room/house. Good for storms, home invasions and civil unrest.

Nuclear War Survival Skills: Updated and Expanded 1987 Edition (Paperback)

Not as big a concern now for many people but that may change in a few years as China develops better rockets. Just so you know, you can survive if you prepare. It is easier than you think. Ever wonder how to build your own radiation detector at home with simple materials? Read this book and find out how. The author researched much of this info for the US government and Civil Defense.

Invisible Resistance to Tyranny : How to Lead a Secret Life of Insurgency in an Increasingly Unfree World (Paperback)

I liked it. Thinking of reading it a second time. There may come a day in the U.S. when this info is helpful. Title sounds more radical than the book really is; I wish they had called it something else. This book is interesting because if 90% of your neighbors read and followed this book, you would never realize it and the country would be much better off. Socialists will hate this book, a good enough reason for me to read it again.

Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse (Paperback)
by James Wesley Rawles
Read it for the ideas and concepts, not the style. This is a How To book inserted into a story. Read it twice, may do it a third time. Christian Boy Scout types take on the UN in a Second Great Depression with a dash of “how to” mixed in.

A standard gun and freedom lover’s book. Even if they change the cover Barnes and noble will NEVER carry this book on their shelves.

Enemies Foreign and Domestic (Paperback)

Fun book. More along the lines of regular fiction but skirts the edge of being really interesting. One of a series, main character becomes unbelievable in later books.

Great idea, not as polished as some traditional "regular" novels, better than “Patriots” though. Kind of like a spaghetti western but fun anyway.

Liked it. Sort of Greenspan meets Mark of the Beast.

I thought 3.5 stars at least. Critic is somewhat accurate but I liked the book for “what the country could be, or rather, how it should be’. Strong on ideas, weak on individual character development. Somewhat of a follow up to The Mitzvah but not a sequel. Can be read alone but references some characters in the Mitzvah. Read ‘em both.

Molon Labe! -- Come and Take Them! (Paperback)
by Boston T. Party
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/188...books&v=glance
Great idea, not as polished as some traditional "regular" novels, better than “Patriots” though. Kind of like a spaghetti western but fun anyway.

Sorry but Rawles wipes the floor with BTP . Boston could do better with a little more thought he could smoke UC . Dont hold your breath though .

Can't we just dig him back up and put him in the big chair? :)

I'm reading Cooper's Another Country right now, and charming as it is, it doesn't have the punch To Ride, Shoot Straight... does. I remember hearing Cooper said it was his best work, but so far I'm not certain about that. Anyone looked through C Stories yet? It looks interesting...

I think the difference between Boston's Molon Labe and Rawles' Patriots is one of focus, not necessarily writing quality. Boston's book is one more of political maneuvering, Rawles' is more survivalist and (eventually) shooting at bluebonnets. Which you like better depends on which interests you more, I think. (If the latter, try A Well Regulated Militia (http://www.amazon.com/Well-Regulated-Militia-John-Carpenter/dp/1413788890/ref=sr_1_2/104-1088844-6384725?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179669493&sr=1-2) by John Carpenter. Less survivalist, more shooting.) Actually it's quite the page turner!
