Greetings fellow travelers…
UPDATE 02/18/17 – As many of you already know, I took ill in January and could not finish formatting as expected. I was down with a rare strain of influenza that seems to be going around here in Utah. I am still recovering and still sick from early January, so my apologies for the tardiness in printing. I am back at it as of this week full time, reading through one last time. That said, I lost my place in line to print, and just found out that there is quite a wait for the printer now. This is my fault, rookie mistakes, and all part of learning the trade. If I submit the final transcript at the end of February, I will receive the copies around the end of March. That is my current goal, though I am constantly amazed at how many mistakes I am finding as I read through my own rhetoric. This first Volume alone has grown to 1200+ pages at this point, as I added what I thought was a necessary, inseparable last chapter/epilogue, which totally destroys much of the patriot mythology of sovereignty and land patents, and explains just what and where the highest allodial title actually lays (hint: it is never with citizens). We have not only been lied to but carry those lies amongst ourselves like banners of false truth. And the state (the fictional “People”) has become a self-serving corporate god over us because of it. Our hope is derived from these lies, from such Romantic notions of nationalism. And so be warned that hope dies here, at the end of this first Volume, with Truths that set us free from that which keeps us the patient victims of the state (Caesar). I will post this final version, exactly as formatted for final printing , as soon as it is finished (around March 1st++). And this, I promise, will be the last and final edited, formatted version!
As a last note and for transparency, the prices for printing have of course gone up with these added page numbers. See below for what I have been quoted as my final pricing, and know that Volume II (800-1,000 pages?) and the reprint of Volume I will come from all the donations (gifts) received for these 2,000 printed copies (asking for a minimum gift of $40 per printed work, as explained below), so that I can keep on writing and hopefully making some more documentaries without having to do any other fund raisers. I need to purchase mailing boxes, pay for shipping, and attain a storage unit, and will also be giving some of these free or at cost to those who cannot afford to donate and perhaps to media networks, etc. You are my only advertising, word-of-mouth as of now, so please play it all forward. Give your copy to others freely with my blessing, and remember the download (pdf) will always be free. Thank you all for making this happen! I’m honored by your trust and generosity. Now if I can just stop coughing and get this lung out of my throat… -clint

It is with great relief, happiness, and nervous anticipation
that I have just posted the (almost) final edit of this word.
Final version coming soon…
Its final title:
“STRAWMAN: THE REAL STORY OF YOUR ARTIFICIAL PERSON”
**While this is not the final cover for the printed version,
it will be similar in appearance. I am fortunate to have Craig Stuckless
working diligently as my cover design artist, and it looks awesome!

The following is excerpted from my blog (realitybloger.wordpress.com) and contains instructions on how to receive a printed book. Further updates to this website to follow. Please leave all comments in the “COMMENTS AND REVIEWS” page above.
My readers should know that this is Volume I of a three or four Volume set, and that this first Volume when printed into book format will be between 900-1,000 pages, with future volumes coming in at around the same number. Currently, the pdf version is unformatted to the book printing template, and stands at 760 pages in my word processor (in standard 8.5 x 11).
For those that might use this page number count as an excuse not to read this work, consider that just one of my multitude of sources for this work, “A Treatise On The Law Of Agency” (1905) weighs in at 1146 pages alone. It was not but a few generations ago that the measure of a man was his ability to rhetorically speak of religion, law, and politics due to his collection of such various tomes, while the supposed men of today whine when a YouTube video is too long as they watch like children on a Saturday morning cartoon binge. To they I say, do as thou wilt, as your adversaries wish.
I made a promise and vow that all of my work will forever remain free to all who seek it. And so I ask that you not only freely acquire this work for yourself here but also to freely share it with whomever you see fit. I ask nor expect nothing in return or consideration for this gift.
However, I have now reached an impasse. For after almost a decade of full-time research, writing, filmmaking, radio, and advocacy with no income gained or sought from it, I am in the depredating position today that I can only privately print this work into a hard-copy book format if the folks that choose to receive this free copy should wish to hold such a paper-bound book in their hands, or to see that others might do so. And for those who comprehend the truly fragile nature of digital things in an ever-increasingly censored digital realm not at all our own, I sit trapped in the hope that together we can make this happen. For alone I have no capacity to cause this work to be printed or to be freely spread. I need you to recommend and pass it to everyone you can. But I would not task anyone with such a request without first giving you the chance to read it for yourself. So enjoy and take to heart what is written in the intent it is written.
As I will never sell this work in any legally licensed or public capacity, keeping it at all times private, I can only ask for donated gifts to be put forward by those interested in acquiring such a paper-bound, printed copy of this book. The first section of my work explains why I have chosen this particular path, and why I refuse to publish (make public) my private work under any fictional, legal state names or titles, why I refuse to register this work as the creation of any legal “person,” why I refuse to assign any ISBN or other mark or bar-code of the legal government upon it, and why because of these choices this work in its printed form is only available though a direct contact with me. I will not sell this work for any price. I can only give it away freely and unconditionally to those who are willing to give to me a free and unconditional gift so that it may be printed.
And so herein is laid out the only way anyone can receive a free copy of this (hopefully) soon-to-be-printed work. The free copy in pdf will always remain free to acquire to all, with no questions or strings attached, and with no consideration ever expected in return. For those that wish to donate to my efforts and future Volumes without receiving a hard-bound copy in the future, being content and happy with merely the digital pdf, I would be grateful for any unconditional gifts. But this is not at all necessary or expected in any way. Again, please share this work freely without exception and without consideration of charge or profit and without any false sense of guilt.
I have fielded several estimates and have finally found a local book-printer (not a publisher) that has what appears to be the most reasonable prices. But to come to such a reasonable price (around $7.21 per printed book @ an estimated 960 pages), I must raise enough in donations to print 2,000 books.
In the spirit of transparency, here’s the run-down.
To print it double-sided, 8.5 by 11, on a regular photo-copier is around $60-70 dollars at most stores plus binding materials, which makes this a non-starter.
500 Totals: $9,620 Unit Price: 19.240
1,000 $12,450 12.450
2,000 $17,560 8.780
