Description:Three critical events in 1913, followed by a corresponding event in 1936, together struck a resounding blow to America’s freedom. In fact, they triggered the greatest turning point away from freedom in modern times. (Scroll down the page for a chapter outline) What were these dangerous events? Why do so few American citizens know about them—especially since they dramatically and negatively impact every detail of their lives? Most importantly, how can their effects be reversed and freedom restored? 1913 answers these questions and more. This is not a doomsday book for alarmists, but rather an optimistic action guide for thoughtful, dedicated freedom-lovers. DeMille provides three clear, detailed, and practical solutions you can implement to restore America’s freedom and revitalize her prosperity. A new turning point of freedom is desperately needed. And reading this book will propel you to the front lines of that shift. “You’re holding a masterpiece on freedom, and everyone who cares about the future of prosperity and freedom should read and apply this book.” –Orrin Woodward, New York Times Bestselling Co-author of Launching a Leadership Revolution “At long last, a piercing analysis that goes beyond predictable partisan bickering and gets to the root of America’s turning point. With this book, we can finally stop spinning our wheels in the battle for freedom, get traction, and make a profound difference.” -Stephen Palmer, New York Times Bestselling Writer & Author of Uncommon Sense: A Common Citizen’s Guide to Rebuilding America

Americans who are so demonstrably willing to labor and sacrifice for the benefit of their posterity can only consent to the destruction of the forms that protect our freedoms if they do not understand what freedom is, or how to maintain it. A FreedomShift is needed today. And to accomplish it, Oliver DeMille proposes The 3 Choices to Reclaim America's Destiny. Can it be possible that such a peaceful revolution can come from three simple choices - made by a relative few?

Legitimate Answers for Freedom Lovers Who Think Outside the BoxDespite the best efforts of dedicated citizens, the freedom movement has been losing for ten decades. Why is this, and how can we reverse this trend? In this 53-minute recorded speech, Oliver DeMille provides surprising answers that challenge and stretch your thinking. Freedom lovers are losing, says DeMille, because they’ve been trained to think sensus solum. This type of thinking stifles creativity, inhibits innovation, creates cultural rigidity, and fails to sway the thinking populace. In order to conquer this ingrained challenge and win the battle for freedom, three things must occur:
- Widespread Sensus Plenior
- Successful Innovators Building Effective Mini-Factories
- Statesmen & Stateswomen
Sensus PleniorSensus plenior, a Latin term, is the thought patterns and language of poetry, symbol, and celebrity. Lower classes in America have been taught sensus solum, while upper classes have been taught sensus plenior. This has created a de facto aristocracy. For freedom to win, America needs about 30 percent of the population to think in terms of sensus plenior.
Mini-Factory OwnersAs Oliver DeMille has written here and in The Coming Aristocracy:
“A mini-factory is anything someone does alone or with partners or a team, that accomplishes what has historically been done en masse or by big institutions. “Entrepreneurship, alternative education, the downshifter movement, environmental groups, alternative health, the growth of spirituality, community architecture, the explosion of network marketing, home doctor visits, the rebirth of active fathering, and so many other trends are mini-factories.”Mini-factory owners — innovators, entrepreneurs — think differently than other segments of the population. They believe in freedom. They build things worth fighting for. America needs at least 3 percent of the population to build successful mini-factories in order to revive, protect, and spread freedom.
Statesmen & StateswomenStatesmen have 1) a broad and deep understanding of governmental, societal, and familial forms that deepen and perpetuate freedom, and 2) the social capital and influence to implement those forms. They possess the highest levels of education based upon a specific methodology. With a deep understanding of history, they see into the future, then create and implement forms in the present.
The U.S. Constitution and the 196 Indispensable Principles of FreedomHow To Write Constitutions in the 21st Century Oliver DeMille has described this work as his “Magnum Opus.”
