For nearly three-quarters of a century the spirit in my decrepit body has inhabited this planet. Over that span I have devoured countless books and written works, and have been perpetually driven by an insatiable desire to achieve and maintain knowledge. Near the top of any list I might compile of the most enlightening works I've ever read, would be G. Edward Griffin's "The Creature From Jekyll Island." That's where I first learned of the TRUE NATURE of money, currency and banking. Prior to that, I had believed what I was taught and what the media told me.
Right up there with Griffin's magnificent works I now must place a rilliant hot-off-the-press 363-page can't-put-down book I read esterday. It's Larken Rose's third book (and first novel) entitled "The ron Web." Every creature on the planet absolutely MUST read this emarkable book. It's difficult for me to imagine a person of Larken's relative youth - - I believe he's in his thirties - - possessing the knowledge, insight and vision it took to produce this fictional account of some stark realities of life in this land widely mislabeled as the land of the free and home of the brave."
If 50 million Americans would read this book, the society our founding fathers envisioned (and hoped for) could become a reality in very short order. Despite its fictional setting, the profundity of its philosophical content eclipses any minor deficiency one could possibly imagine in its realism. It's exceedingly difficult for any writer to accurately describe events and circumstances he has neither experienced nor witnessed firsthand, but Larken has done a superb job in that department as well. Realizing what this country could really be, and how easily the transformation could come about, will set the reader's mind a-reeling. The vast majority of Americans mistakenly believe that freedom is what government has told them it is; that if they can cross state lines without papers, and they are not in jail, then they are free. When you finish reading this book, you will understand the essence of true freedom, most of you for the first time, I'll wager.
For a modest $15, we should all give copies to everyone we love. I cannot think of anything I have ever recommended to anyone as enthusiastically as I endorse this masterpiece.
Order copies by sending $15 in cash (if you dare), check, or money order to:

Hurry. Time's a'wastin' folks. There's work to do. There are people to educate.
I have just finished reading "The Iron Web" by Larken Rose.
I have nothing but praise for this shining example of an all-too-real fictional setting, in the foreseeable future. A little over 300 pages, it took me less than 8 hours to read. I couldn't put it down. On the order of (& a combination of) The Matrix, 1984, Atlas Shrugged, & Lies My Teacher Told Me, as well as many others. My highest recommendation for those wishing to gain a greater understanding of the tyranny of the state.
I have included a link to both Larken Rose's website:
& a link to a review of his book:
Again, it is not often that I wish to share how excited I am upon finishing a book. Truly, all you who seek to gain understanding of how we are in this situation, or even wish to expand your knowledge of the tyranny we labor under, should read this gem, and pass it around to those you care for. After all,
Friends don't let friends advocate tyranny!
Best wishes & love

This is a POWERFUL novel, a fictional story about people being thrust into a confrontation that will change their lives forever. This is also a Political summary of where America is now, and how the average citizen understands how and why the Government is like it is. It is also a educational tool so the reader can understand how he or she perceives the Freedom in America. Finally, the novel explains how it is up to each individual to learn what’s been going on and what he/she might do about becoming Freemen again.
All of the above details would require a reader to spend a lot of time and money just to do the research. Also, as the information he discovers is so foreign to his present beliefs, he probably wouldn’t care to delve into the subject anyway – it’s easier to jut go along with the way things have been going. Even I don’t enjoy reading non-fiction books, be they on Politics, Finances, Education, Religion, Health, and any other subject. Those books just don’t hold my attention; at least not like a detective or adventure story does. Larken has certainly done his home-work here, by presenting all that information and knowledge to us, subliminally, while reading an exciting story about fictional people.
The first few chapters start off slowly, like so many fiction writers do, and the reader might think that this is too much trouble to pursue it. But in just a few more pages the reader understands exactly why all that introductory stuff needed to be registered in his mind. Also he brings in a really great adventure catastrophe as soon as possible, which entices the reader to want to follow the storyline. Also his characters seem like real people, as if the reader might already know people like that. And quickly the reader identifies the fictional characters as having the same qualities, needs, desires, thoughts, etc. as he/she has. In other words, the author tells the reader things he should know or be aware of, but without realizing it. This is a fine example of being fooled into learning stuff that would never have commanded his attention by any other means.
I suggest everyone should get a copy of this book and read it more than once. Then, share it with your friends so they too will get the messages. Lastly, buy an extra copy and donate it to your local library, as I have done.
