Note: This page presents a table of Brian Wright-authored books, which the reader may either download for free as PDF files–though with a recommended PayPal donation–or access for purchase (and/or review) on Amazon. The books are related to the freedom movement, with the Sacred Nonaggression Principle being the integrating work.
SNaP = Sacred Nonaggression Principle
The Sacred Nonaggression Principle book is from Coffee Coaster site proprietor Brian Wright, and is his effort to a) identify the nature of legal or legitimized aggression in human societies, b) provide a theoretical foundation for causes of such aggression (as well as describe the psychological roots of normal, healthful human inclinations not to aggress), and c) outline practical methods and tools for breaking thru the diseased-condition-caused Barrier Cloud that impedes humankind from reaching its destiny of liberty, peace, and abundance. He also saw the need to elevate the nonaggression principle to the highest moral principle in society, hence Sacred, taken in a purely natural, secular sense.
As Mr. Wright was completing the SNaP book, he realized that liberty technically equals the nonaggression principle, further the NaP is the foundation of outer peace, meaning peace in the conventional perspective. He also saw that the internal cause of the NaP-impeding Barrier Cloud lay in the persistence of lower-brain functions that place moral authority outside the individual–e.g. the delusion and addiction of the ‘nation-state.’ To break down and overcome en masse these extremely powerful blind-obedience-to-authority addictions, the motivation of inner peace via spiritual growth is required. Hence, Brian’s continuing work on the cultivation disciplines of FLOW and Beism looking toward a fellowship potential.
SNaP, thus, leads to FLOW, but this page will begin with a brief treatment of the latter movement first–which comprises the realtime leading-edge intellectual and spiritual enterprise that the author is about at time of writing this page (4/2012).
FLOW is a worldwide fellowship that seeks to balance the three fundamental qualities of life: spiritual, political, and practical. The qualities are expressed in the FLOW system as three legs of the triangle:
- Spiritual — Inner Peace
- Political — Outer Peace
- Practical — Abundance
Each of the legs has a link to its introductory brochure, and the summary brochure is located at this link. These will be continuously improved and complemented with supporting material to help in the process of practical spiritual fulfillment. The FLOW system came from the development of my Sacred Nonaggression Principle, the library for which is described below. These are the foundation for this site, deaggress.org, which itself will be continuously improved.
The Book of Being outlines the doctrine of the spiritual philosophy of Beism, along with plans for its evangelism. Beism and FLOW are the logical development from the political theories and practices of the Sacred Nonaggression Principle. It is a work in progress due for completion end of <TBD>. Access it in its current state via the PDF link here and the Amazon page here. To download the PDF a donation of $3 is suggested.

To facilitate notice and sales of the SNaP and its key modules, I make this limited time offer: Anyone who accesses the Amazon or Lulu sites where the books are being sold and leaves a constructive comment (hopefully positive), I will send, in the mail, a signed copy of the book for free. [Please, one book per comment.] Notify me via email of the comment and of your mailing address.
Note that all of the above booklets may be downloaded in PDF format for free, though a small recommended donation is posted, with a PayPal button (you do not have to have a PayPal account to make a donation). You will definitely get your money’s worth. For quantity prices and shipping of larger quantities to bookstores or to others interested in spreading the word, contact the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The general audiences of the SNaP series of books are as follows:
- Module 1 thru Module 3—newcomers to the idea of liberty, as well as (with Module #3) psychologists, ethicists, and spiritual teachers looking for a framework of understanding the psychological foundations of liberty
- Module 4 thru Module 6—liberty activists, i.e. those who have dedicated a significant part of their lives to achieving a benevolent society without coercion.
- Module 7—the Nonaggression Faith module, which has appeal to anyone seeking a strong philosophy of life or ‘religion’ that incorporates the nonaggression principle as a central pillar and basis for moral behavior in society
Every SNaP series module is full of discoveries and insights that have not yet been articulated in the popular culture. They are small books with a high density of clearly outlined new ideas and reconsidered-and-revamped older ideas.

Toward a World of Nonaggression
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace. — John Lennon
John Lennon’s immortal music and lyrics reach into our hearts and give us hope. Every human being can imagine a world without war, where superstition and statism (and the spiritual poverty that accompanies them) are no more.
Moreover, such a world will be one in which we all will be free from the burden of old systems of domination that deprive us of our lives, liberties, and property—systems of legal aggression and privilege that leave us unable to enjoy our existence as nature intended.
The Deaggression Movement, like the deaggress.org site, follows on from the book, The Sacred Nonaggression Principle (SNaP). The idea behind this book is to morally elevate the simple nonaggression principle—which is the tenet that society must not condone or accept the initiation of force by one person (or group of persons, especially governments) upon another—into our special (sacred) mission as human beings.
