From the author:
"In Blueprint for Revolution, I outline a philosophy for implementing world change and provide a model for activists everywhere. From examples of disarming the opposition using laughter and music (e.g., Pussy Riot), to staging a protest of Lego Men in Siberia, Blueprint uses true and sometimes outrageously clever examples of the ways in which non-violent resistance has worked. Blueprint argues in favor of non-violent resistance not for ideological reasons, but because non-violence actually works better than violence. This is a motivational guide for any activist--and an entertaining read for any armchair politico. In addition, the stories in the book are accessible, inspiring, and hilarious. "
