The information on this site can be printed on 8.5″ x 11″sheets of paper but is designed to be folded in half to produce four-page inserts that fit a 5.5″ x 8.5″ three-ring binder. That makes it possible for anyone to have a hard copy of the entire Freedom Force knowledge base. In that format, it is the official Members’ Manual and serves the dual purposes of daily reference and a permanent archive.
When we talk about the holographic nature of Freedom Force, we are referring to the fact that seasoned members possess the full image of our movement and, if necessary, can be a catalist to build it anew. The Members’ Manual is the primary tool for making that possible.
PDF files for each insert are available free. Anyone with a printer and a computer or smartphone can print them for no more than the cost of paper and ink. A great little binder (shown in the accompanying photos) and a three-hole paper punch are sold at Staples Office Supply. For just a few dollars, anyone can be in business.
The first eight pamphlets serve a dual purpose. They are the first pages of the Members’ Manual and also are components of an Invitation Packet, so named because the theme is: AN INVITATION TO CHANGE THE WORLD. It is, of course, an invitation to become a member of Freedom Force as the first step.
These single-fold pamphlets cover all the topics a person needs to consider before becoming a member. They have a conspicuous number on the front suggesting the order in which they should be read. It won’t be serious if they are read in a different order, but the suggested sequence will allow each topic to build on the information presented previously.
If you want a cover and spine to brighten the appearance of your manual, there is a PDF file that will produce inserts customized to fit the Staples binder shown in the accompanying photos. There also is a file to print 6″ x 9″ envelopes (to hold eight pamphlets) with the words: AN INVITATION TO CHANGE THE WORLD printed across the top. Everything you need is available free.
It is not necessary to save these files to your computer to print them, but we highly recommend that you do so and that you also copy them to an external drive or CD/DVD for archival purposes. Their dates indicate if they have been revised. New files should replace older versions. Once the files appear on screen, they can be printed like any other document.
Set your printer for letter-size paper (8.5″x11″) with original-size output, not ‘fit to page’. Print in black ink to reduce cost. If your printer is capable of two-sided printing, make sure the settings are for binding along the short side. Because these sheets are to be folded after printing, their sequence on screen will be: 4, 1, 2, 3. All will be correct after folding.
