Searched ats, couldn't find any reference to this book..

In light of all this talk of revolution, I feel this is relevant to post, and a good read even if people weren't discussing revolution..


Invisible Resistance to Tyranny: How to Lead a Secret Life of Insurgency in an Increasingly Unfree World - PDF


Description from Amazon:
What is invisible resistance to tyranny? It is an underground movement of secret freedom fighters, each acting individually and independently to ignore, evade, resist and thwart the increasingly heavy hand of government power. Invisible resisters do not join protest groups, stand on street corners making speeches or run with a mob throwing rocks at police vehicles. Rather, they make up a collective silent insurgency that tyrants won't be able to put down because they won't be able to find it. Government enforcers will fruitlessly look for organizations with no members, commanders who aren't there, secret headquarters that don't exist and couriers that carry no messages. Invisible Resistance to Tyranny is both a manifesto and manual for everyday citizens who are alarmed by the never-ending encroachment upon the individual freedoms recognized by the Bill of Rights and who want to do something about it now before it comes down to a choice between violent revolution and total submission. It outlines a progressive program of resistance that anyone can undertake without having to protest in the streets, go on hunger strikes or take up arms. It tells how to: • be a "bad" citizen while still being a good neighbor. • identify and nurture sympathizers and build a network of invisible resisters. • confront and convert "government supremacists" to your side. • disrespect politicians and bureaucrats without drawing attention to yourself. • actively resist within today's system through such avenues as taxes, guns, juries and schools. It then provides ideas for the many paths of invisible resistance to tyranny - intelligence collection and dissemination, propaganda, support for active operations and, if it should ever come down to it, direct operations against a totalitarian regime.


Like I said I couldn't find any reference to this book here on ATS..

I found this thread though that discusses something similar by the same author:

True, in your fair nation I objected to the way the media portrayed Tim Mcveigh as a survivalist, and Randy Weaver as a criminal???. Survivalists are NOT militiamen, though some militiamen may be survivalists. Survivalists are NOT against the government they are against socialist thinking.

I agree with NR & AA, so star for you!

Mods, this document in the survivalist forums only further enforces the stereotype of survivalists being synonymous with being against the government, militia members, "freedom fighters", domestic terrorists, and/or all of the above. Please move it to a more appropriate forum at your earliest convenience.

Thank you!

I wasn't exactly sure where to post it. It definitely wasn't my intent to further any stereotypes, so if the mods see fit, by all means, please move it to hte appropriate forum.

Well one things for sure. If you buy this book pay for it in cash, Using a credit card will red light your way into the round up list. Stay off the plastic when buying anything like this.

I agree with the against socialist thinking vibe.

Maybe not against the government, but certainly not FOR the government either! Unless it's a small one akin to the libertarian ideal then I for one have healthy skepticism to them


I think the book is geared up more for city-dwelling survivalists than ones away from population centers.

I say let the book remain in the survivalist section or create a militiaman section for it

Buy the book,
No just download a copy.

The government is not ready for silent insurgency.

I have repeatedly played pranks on most government agencies in the last 30 years to test there response and they failed every-time.

Someone i know dumped a harmless fluorescent green dye in the local stream where he lived when he found out the a group of government agencies were going to do a sweep of a area for the local pot crop.

Needless to say these government agencies were tied up for the day investigating the 35 miles of fluorescent green water.

This gave he local small time pot growers time to harvest there crop before the government found them.

Say the government started going door to door collecting guns.

Then a radio call came in that the local drinking water supply coming out of the faucets all over town was a brite fluorescent green.
likely they would stop collecting guns and start investagating the water supply.
This would give people time to hide there guns.

There are so many thing that could be done that would drive the government nuts.

FEMA railroad cars just change the RFID tags on the cars with other tags taken from other types of railroad cars and watch the government loose there FEMA cars,

You really want to mess up the country a team of 10 to 20 people working at night could change the RFID tags on 1000s of railroad cars in different parts of the US and most of these railroad cars would end up going to the wrong destinations.

I agree with Northern Raider and AngryAmerican totally. We are not revolutionaries, we are survivalist'. We will fight whomever it is to protect our families, but we are not here to start a revolution.

Whatdo you mean? Survivalism, according to wikipedia is:
Survivalism is a commonly used term for the preparedness strategy and subculture of individuals or groups anticipating and making preparations for future possible disruptions in local, regional or worldwide social or political order. Survivalists often prepare for this anticipated disruption by learning skills (e.g., emergency medical training), stockpiling food and water, preparing for self-defense and self-sufficiency, and/or building structures that will help them to survive or "disappear" (e.g., a survival retreat or underground shelter).

Survivalism is not an ideology. I am quite far to the left and I've considered survivalist training. Opposition to socialist thinking has nothing to do with it, but many survivalists also tend to be far-right, and they get the most attention. Unless by socialism you mean dictatorships like the USSR and North Korea, I am against that kind of thinking as well but because I know they were never actually socialist, not because I think they were.
Nice book though.

Ah yes the normal socialist Mantras
(1) Those governments were not real socialists ( even though they themselves thoughtthey were)
(2) Next time it will be different
(3) Yes it did not work last time because the wrong people were in charge.
Socialism Sir, is simply a polite and socially acceptable term for Parasitism, IE one life form living as a parasite of the other life forms, Socialism is a disease of man.
Two certainties with socialism
(1) If you rob Peter to pay Paul you can allways be sure of Pauls support.
(2) There are ALWAYS more people wanting to take out of the communal pot, than contribute to it.

How about we don't hijack the thread into a debate about political ideologies...

This book is simply about how to be a good neighbor, while also being a bad citizen as defined by a tyrannical government.

Discussing the intricacies of socialism vs capitalism will only serve to derail this discussion -about a book- and should be saved for a different thread.

Good point, my original quiery stands is this the right forum for this thread? I would have thought it more suited to an All American political or gun or anarchy forum, not an international forum for survival debate?

Duely noted, and as I said above, I wasn't exactly sure if this was the place for it, so again, mods; feel free to move as you see fit..

With that in mind, NR, you keep coming back to this thread, have you read any of the book? Whether you think it should be here or in another forum, it's still a pretty good read and I'm interested in what others think..

Please dont getr me wrong if my peers on this forum are happy to host these type of thing then so be it, heck its a public forum and we are all here to learn


There are so many books I really need to read, probably including this one, But from what i can see its developed for use in the United states and does not hold much for British people. Respects.
