    Radically descriptive, but with empty solutions.

    I thought the book did an excellent job of, putting into words, the degradation of today's American, as well as other nation's, political systems and the general break-down of the family, morals, and integrity of society. They did however, and like so much of the modern progressive, extreme left wing socialists, have no real suggestions as to what to do about it, other than completely destroy it and go to some type of anarchist commune situation. The book suggests anarchy, destruction,violence, sabotage,lawlessness and moral abandonment as a means to a better society. Good luck with that one! It's a good book to explain, in detail, the folly of the progressive, socialist anarchists of today.

    "To Wait Anymore is Madness," A Review of The Coming Insurrection

    by Kristin Schall

    Will a rabid right-wing TV personality and a multi-national corporation help usher in a new era of social insurrection? Certainly not intentionally, but both Glenn Beck and Barnes and Noble have contributed to creating an international audience for a small, blue book loaded with incendiary ideas called The Coming Insurrection. Beck offered the book to FOX News viewers as a voyeuristic look into the "dangerous" world of the far-left. Barnes and Noble made their contribution to the promotional campaign only after fending off an attempt by New York City anarchists to stage an unofficial book release. Their customers were given the chance to pre-order the book. Consequently, before The Coming Insurrection was even released, right and left wing scrutiny had created an international platform for its authors to speak from. Is this, then the manifesto for the 21st century that the left has been waiting for?

    Written in the aftermath of the 2005 riots in France by an anonymous group calling themselves The Invisible Committee, this book immediately caught the attention of French authorities. It is "the principle piece of evidence in an anti-terrorism case in France directed against nine individuals who were arrested on November 11, 2008" for the sabotage of electrical lines on France's railways. This mysterious act followed a mass strike carried out by French railway workers which crippled the country's transportation system. Whether or not this book is connected to the sabotage it offers a thought provoking analysis of the current cultural and political climate...

    The Coming Insurrection

    I find this book repulsive in it's content of social hatred, evil spirited, and soul death intelligence. I, and probably many to come, am very dissatisfied that Barnes and Noble would even consider putting a book such as this on it's shelf. Anyone that reads this book with the intent of learning and displaying it's character, will experience only the downside of life, the devil's laughter, and anguish from the empty, defeatful, results of such desire. I 'pray' for you, that's right, I 'pray to the Almighty God' 'in the USA' in front of 1000s that read this I hope, that your eyes will be opened, and your thoughts will be reversed. Life is hard enough without trying to make it that way. However, if you accept and overlook the hardships of life, learn from it, be happy that you most likely have it better than many, and present a smile and a kind word, the hardship goes away and it will surprise you how life will seem much better. It is my wish that occurs for you...

    Highly Recommended - leftest book on how to destroy a free society!

    I am a big advocate of reading apposing points of view. The authors were planning the communist takeover of France. They were caught and sentenced to prison. It explains for example, just how deliberate America's economical and society's problems are actually and carefully planned out. Our educational system has been reprogrammed to turn out leaders who will destroy this country.

    This short work answers the questions "What is To Be Undone? And How?" The big complaint is it doesn't answer the question "What is To Be Done?". Enter the link below for more specifics than you care to hear about:

    Absolutely a must-read for everyone in the Western world. A firm

    Absolutely a must-read for everyone in the Western world. A firm analysis of the alienation of modern society and the empty solutions brought to bear on it - this book articulately criticizes governments, corporate entities, reformists and radicals alike. Despite what the Glenn Beck fans of the internet might say about it (likely without actually reading, let alone comprehending, the contents of the book), The Coming Insurrection doesn't pull any punches with their critique of "the far Left", as it were. Every facet of life (and its malcontents) is laid bare in its pages.

    If you have doubts about the desirability or stability of the world we live in - or even if you don't - you should pick up The Coming Insurrection and read it from cover to cover.
