For no money at all Baen are giving away a book by the slightly scary Tom Kratman: http://www.baen.com/a-state-of-disobedience.html
Timothy is a big fan of the infamous Tank Marmot. I’ve quickly skimmed it and the hero appears to advocate Leon Trotsky’s theory of permanent revolution:
“But the biggest thing she was wrong about was this: sure, the federal government will grow again . . . or the state governments will get so powerful that they’ll become as obnoxious as Willi’s ultimately did. But so?”
Jack shrugged. “So?”
“So we do this again. And again. And again. As often as necessary. But, you know, that may not be all that often. And we’re a great country, Jack. Even now. We can afford a revolution every now and again to shake things up and put us back on the right track. I just hope . . .”
“Yes?” Jack encouraged.
“Well . . . I just hope we can always do it without resorting to a real civil war.”
So is it possible that despite the apparent anti-left leanings, this is secretly a Trotskyist manual of insurrection?
