If you’re still keen on revolution, give Brand a miss and have a read of some genuinely fresh ideas from Dominic Frisby – his book Life After The State … will give you a lot more food for thought than anything Brand trots out.

Congratulations on your brilliant book. I already know it will do more good than all my speeches in Parliament and around the country. I should think I will crib heavily from your excellent writing. It is turning out to be a light, passionate and powerful denunciation of a century of state failure.
Steve Baker, MP
Dominic Frisby has gone and done something extraordinary: written a page-turner on the economy. It’s both readable and radical, a serious book that is, by turn, fascinating, alarming and contentious. At times, the book makes you want to shout its message from the rooftops; at others, it just makes you want to shout. Life after the State challenges so much of what we take for granted. It is a wake-up call for politicians, economists and us all, written with clarity, verve and, more than that, the restless passion of an intelligent, inquisitive malcontent. Read it.
James Harding, BBC director of News and Current Affairs
In his new book Life After The State, the writer and commentator Dominic Frisby suggests a few solutions to this mess and he does it with the scalpel-brain of an economy geek and the sharp tongue of a standup comedian … His arguments are not only convincing in principle … they are also compelling in practice. I loved the book.
Mark Smith, Herald Scotland
Thought-provoking and original, anyone concerned how big and bloated government has become must read this book. Dominic Frisby asks the kind of questions that those in Westminster need to start asking.
Douglas Carswell, MP
Thomas Jefferson said “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood”, likewise the case for liberty for must be remade from time to time. Things are so bad that in our time only a comedian can make sense of an economy based on printing money. Dominic Frisby’s Life After the State is an accessible contemporary anarcho-capitalist critique of the mess we’re in with pointers for our escape.
Guido Fawkes, political blogger
It’s incredibly readable and incredibly thought-provoking.
Al Murray, The Pub Landlord
An entertaining cogent attack on state power, which should topple the centralist Trots once and for all.
Tom Hodgkinson, The Idler
We can’t go on as we are. All politicians know that. But if they read Life After The State they might also start to understand what they might do about it. A must read for any thinking man or woman.
