Manifesto of the Free Humans is the third and final book in The Conscious Resistance trilogy from Derrick Broze and John Vibes.
Manifesto of the Free Humans explores the concepts outlined in the first two books of The Conscious Resistance series, including Anarchism, Agorism, community building, spiritual healing, property rights, animal rights, and methods of resisting the State. Broze and Vibes first explore the history of America’s individual Anarchist movement and Josiah Warren’s (America’s first Individualist Anarchist) concept of Sovereignty of the Individual.
The two authors also explore the history of the philosophy of Agorism and update the ideas for the digital age.
In part 2 the book looks at the possibility of coexistence between those who believe in private property and those who reject the notion, as well as other important areas of conflict and possibilities for mutual agreement. The final part of the book outlines their vision for an intentional community that will launch by 2020. The last chapters are dedicated to outlining how this community will attempt to live the message of The Conscious Resistance or Holistic Anarchism.
“The most neglected sector of libertarian opinion might also be the most intellectually fruitful. It was pioneered by late-19th-century anarchists and elaborated on by Samuel Konkin and Karl Hess in the 1970s. The new book by Derrick Broze and John Vibes is an excellent update to this outlook that takes account of the dramatic changes of the digital age. Their view is not about politics but rather its absence, and about the astonishing capacity of the social order to manage itself in absence of top-down control. See if you find this outlook compelling. If you love liberty, I think you will.” – Economist Jeffrey Tucker
“If agorism is anarchy plus action then there isn’t a whole lot of literature that falls into that category. Manifesto of the Free Humans is one of those rare works that puts as much emphasis on the action as on the philosophy and offers concrete insights into putting theory into practice. This is a worthy companion to supplement the work of Konkin and Hess.” – Journalist James Corbett, The Corbett Report
