A Lodging of Wayfaring Men

Instantly named Freedom Book of The Month and a major influence in the Cyber-underground, A Lodging of Wayfaring Men is the story of freedom-seekers who create an alternative society on the Internet – a virtual society, with no possibility of oversight or control. It grows so fast that governments and “leaders” are terrified, and fight to co-opt this cyber-society before it undermines the power of the governing elite.

 

 


Production Versus Plunder

History opens itself to you in this book. By following the central conflict of human history (production versus plunder), the rise and fall of human civilizations become understandable. The truth is that the battles and names that most of us learn in school are never connected to their most basic causes, and therefore never really fit together into an understandable whole. In this book, however, they do.

When history comes together into a coherent story, quite a few surprises can be seen, such as the fact that the Sumerians did not create the first culture: They destroyed it. Or, that Athens did not create the Golden Age of the Greeks: They ended it.

 


The Breaking Dawn

The Breaking Dawn begins with an attack that crashes the investment markets, brings down economic systems and divides the world. One part is dominated by mass surveillance and massive data systems: clean cities and empty minds… where everything is assured and everything is ordered. The other part is abandoned, without services, with limited communications, and shoved fifty years behind the times… but where human minds are left to find their own bearings. And from there it goes to places you’ve never imagined. Like the author’s groundbreaking A Lodging of Wayfaring Men, this is a transformative book – it is economics, technology, theology, philosophy, social activism and derring-do, cloaked in characters whose lives you will care about; whose heart-breaks and successes you’ll feel with them. While ripping the mask off power structures that struggle to control our lives, Rosenberg never takes hope from us. As hard as the journey is into true freedom and liberty, he never takes our focus off The Breaking Dawn.

Recovering Jesus

Just about everyone, when asked, will place Jesus at the center of Christianity. Those same people, however, base their conceptions of Christianity on what other people said about him, rather than what Jesus said himself.

Christianity, then, isn’t the religion of Jesus, it’s a religion about Jesus.

To pick a glaring example of this, Jesus never said a word about being born to a virgin. Other people hold that as a central pillar of their faith, but Jesus didn’t think it worth mentioning, if he believed it at all.

Recovering Jesus makes a positive case for who Jesus was. It examines him directly, divorced from what other people said about him. That is, it ignores all the things people have believed about Jesus, and examines the things he said and demonstrated himself.

 


The New Age of Intelligence

The 20th century, for better or worse, is over. Data war is not like the cold war, nor is it like World War II. Cyber attacks are not like the siege of Leningrad or the invasion of Normandy. The world of intelligence has changed and the players have changed. Ignoring this may be an easy thing to do, but it’s not a wise thing to do. This book was written from the trenches of the new data wars. It offers a raw, apolitical view of what is happening and where the practice of intelligence is headed.

 


The Words of The Founders

What the American Founding Fathers really believed – in their own words. Over 570 quotes, divided into more than 200 subjects. As one reader notes: “We all get the cutesy version of the founding of the country as children and some professor’s political opinion in college. It is quite revealing to read what these people actually put on paper. these men were complex and often conflicted. A good read and very enlightening.”

 

 

 


Return Engagements, Book One

This is the first novel in the Return Engagements series, written in a style that has been dubbed Psi-fi. One reviewer says, “This was an intelligent, fun read. It didn’t take me long because I literally could hardly put it down. The premise is that the narrator travels from the current time to a version of the USA in 1963, an ardent JFK assassination researcher with all his memories intact. Charged with making that time better to improve the present, he puts his current knowledge and skills to great use as 1963 rolls on.”

 


Return Engagements, Book Two

Book Two of the Return Engagements begins with this passage: “My second set of extraordinary adventures was not at all what I had expected. My first adventure prepared me for them in some ways, but in other ways not at all.” This story goes to some very, very interesting places.

 

 

 


The Untold Story of The Greatest Crypto Project Ever

While what we did wasn’t entirely hidden, it was only partly public. And for reasons that will become clear as you read the story, no one on the inside has wanted to talk about it until now. While these people didn’t do much that was actually illegal (at least so far as I know), none of them wanted any “special attention” from the powers that be.

Nonetheless, I think it’s time to tell the story. A new generation of crypto advocates should be able to learn from what came before them.
