Americans who are so demonstrably willing to labor and sacrifice for the benefit of their posterity can only allow the destruction of the forms that protect our freedoms if they do not understand what freedom is, nor how to maintain it.

A FreedomShift is needed today; and to accomplish it, Oliver DeMille proposes The 3 Choices to Reclaim America’s Destiny.

This book was a great follow up to Oliver De Mille's last book "The Coming Aristocracy".

The Coming Aristocracy shows how we've departed from the true freedoms outlined for us by our founding documents, and then challenges us to learn more about freedom so we can better preserve it.

I appreciated what "Freedom Shift" had to say because it shows us what to DO about our loss of freedom in America today. Demille proposes that there are three major decisions that can be made by regular citizens today

I would have likely given this five stars if I could better grasp some of the Author's terms. I'll likely read this again and again in the next several months, because I think this work is very important to regaining the freedoms we are rapidly losing.

These are Author Chris Brady's comments taken off the back cover:

"Oliver DeMille stands like a signpost pointing the way to a better, freer, saner society in keeping with our founding ideals. Regarding America's decline, many people are finally as

If you want shallow opinions and simple answers, turn on talk radio. If you want depth and principles, turn to Oliver DeMille.

If you think one election creates change, then make a sign and march on Washington. But if you want to catalyze real and lasting change, read FreedomShift and apply its vital lessons. This is the real deal. And because it is, it’s not an easy read, nor is it easy to apply.

The question asked of every free citizen is this: Is it worth it?

What an amazing book. I’ve always considered myself a ‘conservative’ but Oliver has debunked the rhetoric and helped me understand the importance of objectivity in ‘choosing political sides’. I’m a lot more tolerant of opinions that differ from my own as a direct result of reading FreedomShift. My motivation to make a great difference in my family, community, and nation is stronger than ever. My resolve to help make a ‘freedom shift’ happen has greater meaning to me and my family.

What a great time time read this book, an election year. FreedomShift is an amazing analysis of our culture and ends with a perceptive view on America's political parties.

Oliver DeMille pulls out, now obvious, conclusions about our society and the needed prescription for change. This goes beyond party politics (and to me appears to be an attempt to heal party divisions by understanding those divisions).

A must read.

A lot of great information in this book. First couple times I went through this I didn't get much out of the third section on Tribes. This time was very different. I really enjoyed what it was teaching about tribes or communities and the impact it has on families and future generations. I can also see the importance of great tribal communities for the future of freedom. It gave me a better idea on how I would like to raise a family and also how I should be for other families.

Love the book! While lots of people see the problems facing the United States, this book draws on timeless principles and historical lessons to paint the way forward. Oliver offers practical advice for every individual and family to consider. This book offers the reader a sense of real hope for America's future without shying away from the realities we face. BRAVO!

This book was such a paradigm shift for me in how I view the government and my role as a citizen. I always felt so helpless with just my vote. Now after reading FreedomShift I understood better what I can do personally to make this country a better place and this has given me a lot of hope.

Oliver DeMille is a true thought leader when it comes to strategizing what it will take to restore and maintain true freedom in a society. FreedomShift builds upon the foundation of his other writings in giving Americans the tools needed to fight for freedom.

I always want the concrete "NOW what do I do" sort of stuff, and deMille NEVER gives you that. I suppose it is my conveyor belt side that wants the nice tidy list. I did love the book.
The first section is quite good, at least for me. It won't be valuable for everyone. The other two sections were simply blind speculations and will bore most people to death.
