An extraordinary and dramatic claim:
Although, I have not heard from every person in the world, it seems as though I am the only person, in this period of time, who has pried open the box, of Secular, Religious, Political, Social, Media and Educational conditioning, to see clearly what must be done to achieve a Government and Society that meets the standards and ideals of the Founder's United States, and the Ancient Israelite Society, upon which it was based.
No current Pundit, Blogger, Politician, Intellectual, Scientist, Economist, philosopher, Educational institution, individual Teacher or Religious authority has come up with what you will read here. All currently proposed solutions to the structure of government and society, to maximize Liberty, protect rights, mitigate hunger, poverty, disease and other ills or problems of the world, from all countries and all institutions, are either wrong or, at best, insufficient.
Prove this to yourself. Can you name one society, formed based on all the experiments in history and modern times, that did not deteriorate into one of privileged Rulers and exploited Servants?
Don't think that I am deluded, arrogant or just another theorist or utopian. My sources are of the highest quality and authority and my research has been subjected to years of peer review and practical testing.
Be Aware or Beware
I challenge you to read through this material and not come away enlightened in some fashion. If nothing else, I will settle for really pissed off… but aware.
Because, the first step to solving a problem is awareness. Once aware, you can pay attention, focus and cut through the fog of entrenched propaganda and wrest back your individual liberty.
Ah, but you think that you are fully aware right now, Don't you?
Let's test that theory.
I've been asked, why bother? Why spend years researching and writing.
It's even a question I've asked myself. That's right! I talk to myself.
I've taken on the task, because, it's necessary and, no one else is doing it, in quite the same way.
Why not go with the Flow? Why be in the lead? Just Follow.
Leaders also follow. However…
"what they follow is different from what most people follow. They don't conform for the sake of conforming. They don't do what others do merely because others are doing it. They follow an inner voice, a call. They have a vision, not of what is, but of what might be. They think outside the box. They march to a different tune." - Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
That does not make me superior… or inferior,
merely in tune with my interior.
The explanations and insights, you will find here, are not out there.
Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your perspective, I see things that other have not.
No, I don't see dead people.
Though, I do see debt, people. :-)
I continue with The Society Project because I know we will succeed, with your help.
The system of government we have in America today is not the one the Founder's fought FOR
- it is the one they fought AGAINST!
Our current government system, much like the one we revolted against, is ruled by hereditary aristocracy of Political Parties for the Benefit of the Political Party and its hold on power, not the benefit of the Public. We are no longer a Representative Democracy. The "representatives" we elect are chosen and controlled by a Political Party and mainly represent their party. The people's diverse interests can not be represented by one or two party platforms. The diversity of 435 community's voices in the House, which are necessary for true Representation of the people, have been censored down to only one or at most two Political Party's voices.
The original system of the United States depended on a virtuous people, refined by Religious practice, schooled in Civilized values with a Govenment controlled by a Constitution to limit the accumulation of power by Politicians. Religious influence has deteriorated since Darwin's theory of evolution was applied to justify Atheism. Religion's essential moral refining process was thrown out together with the rejection of its rituals and perceived mythologies. To fill the vacuum of Religious influence, alien ideas crept in and new secular religions and Quasi-Religions arose with their own dogmas and rituals such as Communism, Socialism, Environmentalism, Racial Supremacism, Political Supremacism and others. The Constitution was reinterpreted to grant almost unlimited power to Politicians. Vast rewards were insinuated into the government system which attracted the most unrefined, immature and corrupted to Politics. Government theft of property in the form of a, previously unconstitutional, direct tax on income, was legalized and programs to create dependent voters were implemented.
The United States system of personal refinement and limited and balanced government power was broken.
"When I contemplate the natural dignity of man…I become irritated at the attempt to govern mankind by force and fraud, as if they were all knaves and fools." – Thomas Paine, Rights of Man
Human beings possess an infinite capacity to create, innovate, intuit, reveal, learn, imagine and build whatever is needed to solve any problem, cure any disease, help each other and make this world into the most perfect civilization we can imagine. The reason we don't, is due to the lack of:
- The lack of a common framework of principles, values, code of coduct, ethics and communication;
- The lack of personal and bureaucratic responsibility and accountability;
- Concentrated power and control in the hands of a small group of unrefined or corrupted people;
- The system that allows or encourages this accumulation of power.
Too much concentrated Power and the faulty system that allows it, creates a moral hazard that even the most honest fall into and become corrupted. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
I will be presenting material, to fix the above, that many will find to be radically different from what they have previously believed.
Some will enjoy the adventure of discovery and some will feel fear or anger at what might change their current, comfortable view of reality. My hope is that you will be willing to take on the challenge of chewing over and digesting what I will be relating, rather than immediately spitting it out and pushing away from this banquet of ideas.
Only together can we end "Politics". By that I mean, that which is motivated by lust for Political Power and corrupted by too much of it. For example, the artificial divisions and strife, among the populace, based on party allegiance, dogma or economic class which are propagated for Political reasons. Or the cultural and moral decay, due to dissolution of ethical and moral standards, for Political reasons. More immediate, the ongoing theft of your wealth, through income based tax and stealth devaluation of the dollar by the Federal reserve, (which manifests as inflation of prices), and strangulation of business by overreguation and Soviet style central planning by our government that rules over the people without their consent.
The solutions I propose are "out of the box" of any Political Party, so I expect that every reader will experience some resistance. You may not get initial support from anyone else on your "team" either. For one thing, I will make the case that it is necessary to eliminate all Political Parties. I will recommend restoring boundaries on what tasks the government should legitimately and practically perform and what tasks must be returned to the people. It is immorral compulsion and theft when the govermnet takes money from one person and does not deliver a direct benefit to that person. Taxation for the miliray which benefits everyone is moral. Charity, social services and any form of largese is immoral and fueled by theft.
There will also be a plan to change the way we fund government. If not through a bill for services rendered, then at least via a tax on transactions rather than through confiscation of property, and an invasion of privacy that reveals everything about us to the government. Also the elimination of the Federal Reserve control of the currency and interest rates, since it is the instrument of a stealth flat tax, that comes directly out of the dollar itself, and makes everyone poorer.
A politician is a man who will double cross that bridge when he comes to it.
I have enough money to last me the rest of my life… unless I buy something.
Today, not even the coldest weather can keep Politicians' hands in their own pockets.
- Sad, but true, update to Bob Burns 1945 comment, "It’s been so cold down in Washington, D.C., that Mr. Morgenthau has put his hands in his own pockets!”
What happened to our Wealth, Health, Free Time, Freedom and Safety?
Based on all our hard work, didn't we expect to be:
And to have:
We aren't because the Government, besides all the taxes they confiscate, is stealing our wealth with a hidden flat tax that everyone is paying.
If you give me a little of your time and keep an open mind, I'll explain how they're doing it and how to fix it.
There are only two forms of government, a government imposed Above the people, such as by conquest, or a government Of the people, constituted by the people.
A government Above the People. Rulers and exploited servants.
Up until the last few Hundred years, societal arrangements have been structured as a large servant class sustaining a small ruling class. From Slaves laboring for the Pharaohs and Kings to the feudal serfs laboring for the Crown and Nobility, the masses fed the fat asses of the Conquerors and their descendants. Their lust for power and more slaves led to constant war. Power bred corruption among Royal Courts, administrators, sycophants, entourages, relatives and various and mostly nefarious types of privileged aristocracy. Their governmental systems and bureaucracy were dedicated to perpetuating this model. For thousands of years these parasites fed off the common people, all the while back stabbing, plotting, scheming, stealing, warring, fighting and committing every debauchery known to man. Most of all they protected the status quo.
There was no written arrangement, treaty or covenant between the rulers and the people. The ruling class became so by conquest or heredity and not by the choice of the servant class.
The powerful ruling elite justified their privilege and the power gap between them, and the much larger servant/slave class, as conforming to the order set out by "the Gods".
The rulers status and position were defined, justified and solidified through the dissemination of stories, mythology, ideology (or Idol-ogy) and propaganda. In Ancient civilizations, these Political communications claimed that humans were created for the sole purpose of serving the Gods in a manner, "coincidentally", organized exactly like the prevailing social hierarchy, which claimed kinship with the Gods or to speak for them or to have been granted a divine right through blood or even to be Gods or Demi-Gods themselves, as did Egypt's Pharaohs and Rome's Emperors. .
This was a very effective method to control the servant class. In their minds questioning one's social position would mean facing the wrath of the Gods and was almost unthinkable.
Like the Gods, ruling classes, had the responsibility to care for and protect their servants and the rulers had the responsibility to perform the supplication and prayers to the Gods.
Immigrants from third world countries suck up welfare, food stamps, housing, education and other "free" benefits, that you and I pay for. Illegal aliens roam the country committing crimes with impunity. And we can't talk about the reality without being shouted down, by conditioned government media shills, as "racist" or some other pejorative nonsense.
Solution – Responsibility to be self-sufficient or sponsored:
No direct or indirect public assistance of any kind, nor eligibility for citizenship for 10 years. This Eliminates the incentive to come here to mooch and the incentive of Politicians to accumulate dependent voters.
In addition to not being a criminal, all immigrants, including refugees, must be self-supporting or sponsored and supported by their family or religious, fraternal or other community who are not recipients of public assistance. The immigrant and/or their sponsors are responsible to compensate victims of crime and accident, perpetrated by the immigrant. All immigrants, legal or illegal, who are convicted of a crime are ejected and banned from this country and their sponsors are prohibited from sponsoring anyone else for a year. This will bring even more motivation for the family and community to control their own.
All immigrants must immediately enroll in citizenship, and Foundational American Values, training, prove competency in English and all other requirements for citizenship. Training is repeated at the 5 and 10 year mark. After 10 year training and proven competency, they are granted citizenship (and the right to vote).
Illegal immigrants are already established with families and children who are American Citizens. They can not be expelled without major disruption and questions of compassion.
Illegals can become Permanent residents, if they follow the above responsibilities and the Immigrant or sponsor pays back all prior public assistance received. However, since they entered the country illegally, they are banned from ever becoming citizens.
Like the Boston Marathon bombers, it is not enough that they live off us, they also murder us and our children and blow the legs off innocent runners and bystanders.
After this, and over 20 thousand Islamic Jihadist attacks around the world since the horror of 9/11, our government still denies that there is such a thing as Islamic terrorism – motivated by Islam itself – and instead creates the illusion of "radicals" and looks for every excuse to do nothing about Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Dagastan, Chechnya and all the other Islamic countries that train, fund and enable Islamic terrorists.
Islam has not suddenly been "radicalized". Islam has been at war with the rest of the world, for over 1500 years. We (and I include myself) just didn't notice until after 9/11.
Practicing (as opposed to merely ethnic) Muslims will automatically be put on the government watch list and are never eligible to vote in State or Federal elections as their Political "Religion" calls for the overthrow of non-Muslim, e.g. American, government and is antithetical to Foundational American Values. Preaching, recruiting or assisting in violent Jihad shall be classified as criminal and treasonous. Those convicted will be expelled and banned for life from the country. Any Mosque or organization preaching, recruiting or assisting in violent Jihad will be closed, those directly involved expelled and banned and the property confiscated. All attendees and/or employees will have their property and business searched and be placed under surveillance for at least one year.
An example of the meaning of Welfare in the 1770's (well faring – good going, safe travel) would be protecting the highways from bandits and robbers.
Giving a free ride to hitchhikers fell under the definition of charity, not welfare, and was an individual or family responsibility – certainly not within the purview of government.
General Welfare in the Constitution refers to the States, not the people, in the same manner that the Common Defense refers to the State militias banding together to protect the States and not to the internal Policing of the State.
The Federal Government was not allowed power over the internal workings of the States. The Federal Government was a compact between States that were Sovereign Entities. The country is called the United States not the United People's Republic (as Communist Countries, that control the people, are called). The States had a voice in the Federal Government by their right to elect Senators.
The States are no longer sovereign due in large measure to the formation of Political Parties.
Political Party power plays, in State Legislatures, led to stalemates in voting and vacant seats in the Senate. This "crisis" was the fuel for the erroneous solution of taking the power of electing Senators away from the States and giving it up to the Public (17th amendment) which was controlled by the Political parties. After that the Federal Government became a tyranny of one Political Party and on rare occasions two, not in many ways different from the Monarchies and Communist countries. The only positive differences and freedoms, in the USA today, are due to the continuing influence of Judeo-Christian Religious principles and the scraps of protection written into the Constitution that have not been redefined away by the Courts based on Political Party propaganda.
There are only two forms of government.
OVER the people or OF the people.
OVER the people
Communism and Socialism is a government of central planning. Communism nationalizes the means of production. Socialism regulates them. The Communist/Socialist party Over the people.
Monarchy, Dictatorship and any system of POLITICAL PARTIES or factions is the rule of the few over the many.
Democracy in the small retains an equal voice for all. Democracy in the large results in the majority in charge. The majority OVER the Minority.
OF the people
The only system of government truly OF the people is a Representative Republic Constituted by the people with no factions or Political Parties. The people have a voice through their elected representatives via Democratic vote and the Constitution limits the government of the few or the majority of the people from tyranny over the minority.
This system has been broken by the two Political Parties and we live under a tyranny, albeit soft, of the Parties over the people.
You've heard the President say it about the USA. Every reference in the news repeats it. Our Military enforces it. We build nations based on it.
But, is the USA actually a Democracy? (it was set up as a Constitutional Republic; but that's another story.)
Democracy means rule by the majority of the people. In every decision, everyone has a voice through their vote.
When the population is small enough, everyone votes directly. In large populations voting is accomplished through elected Representatives of the people.
Democracy is not an ideal system. If you are in the minority, your votes don't count and you are forced to obey the will of the majority.
Historically, in all Democracies, the majority eventually voted to take everything from the minority.
Democracies captured all the labor from slaves by owning them, some took most of the fruits of the labor of serfs by owning their land and in modern Democracies, by confiscatory taxation of people's labor and property.
Communism has elections and everyone is free to vote.
But it is not a Democracy because a vote is meaningless when there is only one Political party.
One choice is no choice.
There is only one voice and it is that of the ruling Communist Party, not the people.
The party makes any law they please and you have no say. They have the power and you don’t.
Technically, you did pick them as your representatives.
Practically though, if a Political Party controls the representatives, they are no longer your representative. They are the Party’s.
Would you call America a Democracy because we have one extra choice of Political Party?
If Communist one party rule is a tyranny, what would you call it when one Political party in the USA controls the Presidency, and therefore the military and Congress which makes the laws?
You might argue that there are sometimes two parties, Republican and Democrat.
But both voices are those of the party rulers, not the people.
Without a voice and free choice, the government is a Tyranny.
It is only the degree of tyranny that is different between the United States and Communist countries.
The United States did not begin with Political Parties. Political Parties do not represent the people. They represent a consolidation of a small number of powerful individuals.
The people do not have a voice in Party government other than the one time power of elections; a very weak power at best.
Voting can be manipulated legally through propaganda, negative advertising, how much money one puts in to a campaign and changing the nature of voting districts. It can also be manipulated illegally through bribery, blackmail, voter registration fraud and even interfering with the counting of votes.
Even if voting were not influenced, we still have, at most, only two voices in government, speaking for their party rather than 435 representatives, speaking for the people.
For the United States government to represent the people, Political Parties must be rendered powerless, abandoned or banned altogether.
When I am sick, I want instant relief. A cure is not my immediate priority, especially if it will involve more hardship and pain. Usually the sickness will pass, so temporary relief of symptoms is a good approach. However, if the instant relief makes things worse or the problems persist or they get too big to dismiss, I am confronted with the realization that the problem is systemic and chronic and I need a more comprehensive cure. When this, willingness to effect a cure, happens depends on our level of tolerance for suffering and our differing ability to dismiss reality.
For instance, most people know smoking leads to cancer. Given this knowledge, some smokers quit cold turkey, some use nicotine gum to ease the transition and some continue smoking and deny that cancer will happen to them.
It is the same way with addressing the problems in the Political body of our Country. Many look for the instant relief of a new regulation or law or the tweak of electing different Politicians and governing parties. That's the Plop and the Fizz. The more we rely on that remedy, the more the Politicians, who are selling that remedy, profit and stay in business. Even though we are presented with choices of candidates, parties, laws and regulations - at their root, these are merely masking the disease by relieving symptoms. We are even encouraged to argue and hate each other based on our choice of Political symptom relievers. It is like fighting over the false choices of Aspirin or Ibuprofen to cure cancer.
Our body's diseases are caused by a breakdown in our system. The cure is to restore our system to health. So too are the problems of government a result of a breakdown of our original healthy system. The cure is to fix the system, not the symptoms. A tumor requires surgery, not aspirin or electing to trust Doctor Feel Good instead of Doctor Cutting.
What's wrong with political parties?
We are electing an ideology, not representatives.
The political process is shaped by differences (of Partisan affiliation) instead of commonality as Americans.
Decisions are made for the Partisan good and not the public good.
Permanent Parties, formed with the goal of implementing an ideology and staying in power, and whose members march in lockstep on all issues replace and exclude legitimate temporary factions, whose members are united based on a few major issues, formed for the purpose of correcting a problem.
Insults and Uncivil Dissent, based on party rivalry, replaces reasoned discourse on principle.
There is not enough competition of opinion.
Parties regard those outside the party as enemies with whom they have no common ground.
Trust in government is broken by the Parties' inability to compromise.
Too much power which led to corruption and the usurpation of representation from the people.
Un-elected control, by two private clubs, of elected representatives.
Lack of individual responsibility, when in a group. Mob mentality among the party members. Explicit protection of malfeasance by the group which leads to winning at any cost, with no moral restraints. For the same reason the Catholic Church protected their pedophile priests, so too Political parties protect their criminals and liars.
Biases Supreme Court Judges to supporting their party's agenda rather than unbiased judgment and makes it acceptable to alter and reinterpret the Constitution.
