    Greetings, Fellow Conspirators

    Welcome to the Grand Outlaw Cabal.

    You've never heard of the Grand Outlaw Cabal? That's because I just invented it. But you're invited to join.

    Hey, if everybody else in the world gets to have a conspiracy, then why not us? Why not a conspiracy of freedom-loving individuals? A conspiracy of people who are normally too independent to collude. A cabal of cussed individualists. A league of non-intrigue and a guild of the guileless for the perfidious purpose of plotting no plot at all. A seditions scheme, a cliquish cartel practicing the subversive craft of simply being our own free selves in a world that doesn't much like Our Kind of People.

    Let's make it complete with secret oaths and handshakes and Orders with rites of Non-Initiation. Or not, as it pleases us.

    Oh yes, and if we can restore freedom to the world at the same time—even to some tiny little corner of the world—that'll be a bonus.

    Conspiracy of Freedom

    Freedom is being flushed down the drain. Big Brother, his Little Brother corporations, special interest groups, the gimme-gimme-gimme crowd, and the TV babies all have their hands on the handle.

    If you haven't noticed that, then nothing I could say would make any difference. If you have noticed, then I don't need to say more—except let's clog up the drain, overflow the system, put government and its friends up to their knees in you-know-what—and stop them from creating their twisted dystopia where everyone is tracked, mind-controlled, and treated as a carefully stamped and numbered asset of the Omnipotent State.

    Let's do it just by being our unruly, ungovernable selves. Together.

    One act of disobedience . . . seems like nothing. It swirls away into the sewer, unnoticed. And the second and the third. The small grains of resistance simply was away on the irresistible currents of tyranny. But gradually, grain upon grain, clot upon clot . . . we jam the hole through which our freedom has been draining. We jam the tyranny works.

    And that's where the conspiracy comes in.

    Claire Wolfe is a libertarian author and columnist. Some of Wolfe's favored topics are gulching or homesteading, firearms, homeschooling, open source technology, and opposition to national ID and the surveillance state or nanny state.

    Wolfe's books include such titles as 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution and I Am Not a Number!. Wolfe also writes or has written for a number of magazines, notably Backwoods Home Magazine, S.W.A.T. magazine, and DGC Magazine, which covers electronic, metal-backed currencies. A common subject in Wolfe's writing has been the fictional town of Hardyville, a rural libertarian enclave populated by stereotypical characters (Dora-the-Yalie, Bob-the-Nerd, Carty-the-Marine, etc.). When not writing, Wolfe is also an artist specializing in pastel portraits of people and animals and makes and sells jewelry and kaleidoscopes.

    Wolfe's first book, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution, was the result of disillusionment with the voting record of Republican Linda Smith of Washington, whose congressional campaign Wolfe had supported in 1994.[1] The book advocated a radical libertarian stance, opposed both major political parties, and encouraged self-sufficiency and actions to minimize the influence of the government in the life of the individual, as well as ideas for monkeywrenching. It was published by Loompanics Unlimited and became an underground bestseller.

    Wolfe wrote a column for WorldNetDaily in the late 1990s and has written and blogged irregularly since then. The Freedom Outlaw's Handbook (2004) is a compilation of ideas from Wolfe's first two books, both of which are now out of print.
