Renaissance In The Age Of Reason:

Stepping Off The Path Of Decline & Decay & Onto The Path Of Prosperity

Real Solutions for the Real World

by Christopher Alan Reid

.

Given that we are a sovereign people, it felt most appropriate, wherever possible, to present this list in the format of a public notice, a proclamation.

If you were at the settlement table, these would be the terms given when accepting the unconditional surrender of your enemies.

If you were running for office, this would be the agenda.

If you were having an intellectual discussion on how to best set up a society for success & prosperity, these would be the talking points.

If it was the old west, & you were posting a bill in the town square outlining community policy for newcomers, this is what you would read on the dusty, tattered pages of that sun-faded document.

Whatever your particular need, it’s in a format that says, these are the things that we want, expect, & require, & the things that we will not tolerate.

.

.

Despite having rights & protections clearly enumerated in the Constitution, we find ourselves under attack from all sides. Perhaps that one layer of protection is not enough. Perhaps we need to enumerate those protections at the local level as well. And perhaps, while we’re at it, we need to reaffirm who holds power & how it is to be exercised. If these mechanisms were working well as designed, we would not find ourselves in the situation that we are currently in, under attack from all sides, & drowning in corruption; consistently & incrementally losing our rights, freedom, & sovereignty, & with them our prosperity, our culture, our heritage, our history, & our future.

.

All components in this proposal of implemented solutions can be established initially through Local Ordinance, & expanded locality by locality, until eventually adopted & enacted nationwide. Mutual assistance & extradition clauses will help communities support one another, facilitate the growth of adoption, & support the expansion of wider-ranging components that can’t initially be fully enforced by local ordinance alone. These expanding pockets of adoption provide growing support & protection for our nation of communities, our citizens, & our patriots. As this expanding web of support takes root & grows, we send a very clear message to the world; this is the will of the American people.

In this way, our nation of communities can make it clear to the world their intentions, by having proclaimed in a very clear voice what they want, expect, & require, & what they will not tolerate.

This is a framework for implementing an array of solutions.

Free Speech Ordinance (Liberty Ordinance)

Liberty Ordinance

Anyone attempting to disrupt a person or groups First Amendment right to speak & be heard in public, especially at organized public events, will be removed from the area by Local law enforcement &/or the citizenry.    

You do not have the right to silence someone.

We cannot allow others to undermine our culture, & our free & open society by attacking our ability to speak freely.

Anyone trying to prevent or disrupt free speech at a public rally by any measure, will be physically removed by local law enforcement or the citizenry.

In the event that physical removal becomes necessary, & that action causes injury to the disruptor or others, the disruptor, solely, will be civilly & criminally liable for instigating the incident in clear violation of the law, the Liberty Ordinance.

Provisions for fines & jail time, in addition to removal, are appropriate as incentives for compliance & cooperation.

People must have the right to be heard in public & not be shouted down, mobbed, attacked, or otherwise disrupted in an attempt to silence them. This is a clear violation of our First Amendment right to free speech, & it is a tactic of subversion, control, & tyranny. We must not, cannot, & will not tolerate it. Free speech is always the first thing tyrants come for when they intend to take all of our unalienable rights.

Imagine how fundamentally different it would feel, how it would positively change the tenor of our conversations & discussions, if people felt safe bringing their whole family out to public rallies again, if people felt safe expressing their views in public. That used to be the America we lived in. It could be again. All we have to do is decide that’s the kind of country we want to live in & make some simple changes like this Liberty Ordinance. Fortunately, getting back many of the things we’ve lost, such as civility & order, isn’t rocket science. We just have to consciously decide we’re going to do it, to insist upon it, & to be intolerant of any opposition to law, order, & free speech.

Liberty Ordinance

***************************************************************

This is a must have. We need it to win the fight we are already in.

We cannot win without it.

We need it to get our message out.

We cannot let the enemy prevent us from telling our story.

If we allow our enemies to disrupt us, they will.

If we allow them to disrupt us, they will keep us from getting our message out; they will prevent us from telling our story.

If we can’t get our message out, if we can’t tell our story, we will lose.

.

Regarding the Ordinance itself:

It’s about enforcing basic rule of law, & basic law & order; very simple things that used to be a given, & taken for granted, but are now under full assault. They must be restored.

Protect & maintain order.

Protect free speech.

No one has the right to deny someone free speech, or to silence them, or their message.

We must enforce that.

We cannot win unless we do.

.

Our enemy is, & has been, using this disruption tactic to defeat everyone it faces for years now, & their efforts are intensifying & will continue to do so until something stops them, or until they seize all power. Make no mistake, that is their goal.

They are now flush with cash, funded by essentially all the large corporate interests; protected & given cover by the media who guard their narratives & countersignal everyone else’s; given political cover by BOTH parties, at the national, state, & local level; & protected legally by prosecutors who are an extension of their political parties. The enemies we fight are the new beneficiaries of ‘protected status’ in our budding two-tiered justice system.

They have all the advantages, and the momentum.

If we don’t make the necessary changes to oppose them, AND actively do that, we have lost our republic.

Without this Liberty Ordinance, this Free Speech Ordinance, we will have no more liberty, no more rights, & no more republic.

.

We cannot let the enemy prevent us from telling our story, speaking freely, & exercising one of our most fundamental unalienable rights.

.

********************************************************

.

The fight that we are already in is a battle that we did not choose.

Consequently, we haven’t a choice whether or not to fight. The only choice we have is whether we will win or lose.

This is, at its core, a fight between those who want to preserve civilization, & those who want to tear it down.  (You can see the evidence of that all around you every day by simply turning on the news.)

That makes it a fight tailored made for us to win.

It is a battle that transcends ideologies, past political affiliations, personal preferences, & chosen ways of life.

It’s the stuff of legend thought by most to exist only in stories, come to life, an epic battle between the forces of pure good & evil.

It’s bewildering & confusing to be suddenly thrust into the middle of an epic allegorical battle that none expected. However, it’s a reality we must all wake to, & a battle we all must fight, if we are to preserve our civilization, our history, our heritage, our prosperity, & our future.

Never before in our history has it been in the interest of so many to fight on the same side of a battle.

If you want to preserve civilization, regardless of your ideological beliefs, your past political affiliations, your personal preferences, or your chosen way of life, you stand shoulder to shoulder with all of us against the evil that wants to tear our civilization down, against the evil that wants to tear all civilization down.

.

This is our story.

We must let nothing prevent us from telling it.

Preserving American Heritage & A Future of Prosperity

.

1. The One-Income Middle-Class Family must be within reach for every American.

This is the key to everything. If we succeed everywhere else & fail here, we will still likely fail at attaining our overall goals of prosperity & preserved heritage.

The catch is, that to succeed here, we need to succeed in other places as well.

We must begin by acknowledging fundamental truths about ourselves as human beings & build solutions that are in line with those fundamental truths. There is no escaping human nature or who we are. If we don’t rectify the workings of our modern world to fit our core needs as human beings, such as making family, social connections, community involvement, & well-paying work, more consistently & widely accessible, we can look forward to a more brutish existence than most imagine. Both research & historical evidence show the future will hold little more than continual decline & decay if we do not solve those problems. There is no escaping that. The evidence is there. Many have written about it. It is clear how the mechanisms work. There is no hoping it away. Some things work how they work, & there is no wishing them to work differently. But, that does not mean we are powerless, or that we cannot change certain mechanisms to get different outcomes. All of this is completely within our power to change. But we do have to acknowledge fundamental facts & truths, & put resources toward implementing solutions & positive change if we truly want more positive outcomes. If we allow things to organize at random & fall how they may, if we fail to impose our will on mechanisms, we will reap the decline & decay of that inaction for generations. If we take responsibility, speak in one voice, unified behind a single vision, and act as a nation of unified communities to implement solutions, nothing can prevent the future of prosperity & preserved heritage that we desire, that we must have.

Achieving this reality requires addressing all of the core factors that affect long-term prosperity & stability. Discussed throughout are common sense, evidence-based economic, job, trade, & sound money policies, along with corruption, parasitism, & waste prevention mechanisms that help us achieve the prosperity & stability that enables one-income families. A good case can also be made that direct incentives supporting the one-income family are appropriate & beneficial in the short-term, with continued benefits of longer term, or even permanent incentives discussed in the linked companion documents. Essentially, viewed as investments, these incentives cost us drastically less than the increase in productivity & the increased contributions to society that they produce. (Kids grow up, produce & consume goods & services, pay taxes, & make various other contributions to society as citizens, the sum of which is enormously greater than the initial incentive investments made.)

As a direct incentive, federal tax incentives will be available to: Those families that are willing to provide the environment & specific factors & practices that have been shown to most reliably produce greater percentages of healthy, productive, well-adjusted children who tend to most reliably grow up to make largely positive contributions to society; while avoiding the environment & specific factors & practices that have been shown to most reliably produce greater percentages of poorly-adjusted children who tend to grow up to contribute disproportionately negative impacts on society, including substantially higher levels of crime, violence, abuse, & extreme anti-social behavior. To be clear, this isn’t about attempting to enforce some idyllic version of a just & righteous moral code. This is about whether we want to spend limited resources to increase the percentage of people making positive impacts, or spend those resources to increase the percentage of people making negative impacts. It’s a fundamental decision to make civilization either more, or less functional. We must prioritize expenditure of limited resources towards creating the greatest gains that have the greatest positive impact on the civilization. Nowhere is this more important than the production of our most important resource, people. Even though we don’t think of our children & our young people that way, that’s what they are, our most valuable resource, in development. As we make choices for our families, we make choices about what kind of people we want to create as citizens for our society. Do we want to create greater percentages of people who are well-adjusted & making positive contributions to society, or do we want to create greater percentages of people who are poorly-adjusted & making negative contributions to society? Clearly the wise, & the most beneficial choice, is directing these resources towards increasing the number of people who are most capable of making positive contributions to society, their families, & themselves. Securing brighter prospects & a more prosperous future is really only possible if we consciously make those choices, & make them systemically over the long term.

Looking at the data & research going back many decades, what is the most easily identifiable factor producing the biggest difference in successful outcomes for children continuing into adulthood? The presence, or absence, of a two-parent household. This has been shown so profoundly over such a long period of time that it’s not even seriously debated anymore. Regardless of individual political or social beliefs, regardless of the variety of proposals to mitigate poor outcomes & their negative effects on society, there is generally unanimous agreement that two-parent households produce children with the best outcomes. That is the environment that, hands down, most consistently produces the most well-adjusted children who tend to make the most positive contributions to society into adulthood. It makes every bit of sense that this is where we should focus our resources when we seek to incentivize healthy & productive families who will produce the best future citizens with the largest positive impact on the future of our civilization. This is an obvious, available, & highly-effective strategy to increase prosperity & stability within our civilization. Additionally, the incentives proposal encouraging it is something we can expect people to willingly & enthusiastically engage in, since it is in their own best interest. Research has consistently shown that marriage, children, & family is something that people reliably continue to desire & hold as being very important, generation after generation.  Engaging this consistent, reliable, generation-spanning desire to fuel adoption of the family incentives proposal, helps ensure the accessibility & prevalence of one-income families, which will in turn help increase the prosperity & stability of our civilization for many generations to come. As a strategy, this represents a highly-effective low-hanging fruit that we cannot afford to ignore. As such:

All married, two-parent families with children, where both parents live in the home with the children, will be eligible for federal tax incentives. For each child, up to 3, families will be eligible to receive additional tax incentives. Parents must remain married, and live together with the children in the home to continually remain eligible for incentives. This requirement for eligibility reflects the significant negative social & economic costs that are imposed upon the rest of society when the environment changes to one that tends to most reliably produce greater percentages of children who are poorly-adjusted, & who tend to grow up to contribute disproportionately negative impacts on society, including substantially higher levels of crime, violence, abuse, & extreme anti-social behavior.

Those families who are able to maintain above said conditions will maintain eligibility for ongoing & continued federal tax incentives during child rearing. Families who are unable or unwilling to maintain those conditions will become immediately ineligible. A willingness to demonstrate that type of committed responsibility is a more than reasonable expectation in return for a civilizations investment in you & your family. As a long train of evidence clearly shows, it’s also a minimum level of committed responsibility that all children need, and that you owe to your children in particular, in order to give them the tools they will need to successfully negotiate the challenges they will inevitably face throughout the course of their lives.

Family Incentive Proposal:

A.) $5,000 tax credit per child, per year

Total tax credit per child: $90,000

Up to 3 total children are eligible, when under age 18.

(Currently, the child tax credit for 2019, 2020 is worth up to $2,000 per child that is under the age of 17.)

{A typical child costs $14k per year, or $252,000 by age 18}

(Americans with an average income will pay a little over $350,000 in lifetime federal taxes (adjusted for inflation). Higher than average earners, maybe somewhere around $750,000 to $1.4 million.)

B.) $50,000 interest-free, general-purpose loan

$16,667 of which is available at the second trimester of each pregnancy

Eligibility: If the couple participates in the 3 Child Program, agreeing to have three or more children, they are eligible for a $50,000 interest-free, general-purpose loan, proportionally dispersed after the conception of each child.

Upon the birth of the couple’s 1st and 2nd child, loan payments will be suspended for 3 years each, with 1/3 of the principal forgiven after the second child. After the 3rd child is born, the debt will be wiped out. 

(This encourages us to stay above the replacement fertility rate of 2.1)

C.) $9,000 tax credit for a 7 passenger vehicle (Eligible at the 2nd trimester of the third pregnancy)

D.) $13,500 mortgage tax credit (Eligible at 2nd trimester of the third pregnancy)

E.) Women who have given birth to and raised 4 children, under the 3 Child Program, will pay no income taxes for the rest of their lives.

f.) Grandparents who are still working are entitled to take leave to help take care of their new grandchildren. 

.

To remain eligible, both parents must live in the home with the children & remain married.

Jobs, Labor, & Wages

2. All American jobs must be filled by American citizens. No more outsourcing. No exceptions. Outsourcing of American jobs is over.

It’s already well-known & well-accepted that outsourcing & mass immigration are the main causes of job opportunity shortages & artificially low wages. Job opportunity shortages& low wages, in turn, are the things that prevent people from being able to afford children & families, especially single-income families. Again, everyone knows this, & it’s only the corrupt & parasitic who benefit from that system, in league with the bureaucracy, who attempt to deny those facts. As such:

.

Companies who sell products & services in the US, must use American workers (US citizens) to produce those products. No exceptions.

No offshore outsourcing of labor, or onshore outsourcing of labor using visa-based foreign workers will be tolerated.

All imports will be heavily tarrifed, if allowed in at all, unless there is a fully reciprocal trade agreement with the country in question.

Foreign countries & businesses who want access to our very large, very profitable, & very stable markets, will be able to do so only to the extent that it serves the interests of American workers & the American people, & only when it suits the needs of our people, the stability of our society, & the continued health & prosperity of our civilization.

We have the largest, most profitable, most stable, & most secure markets on the planet. Accessing them is a privilege & not a right. Those privileges will only be fully extended to those other cultures that have values & interests that are compatible with our own.

We have a very large self-contained & self-sufficient continent & people. We have the capability to produce everything we need right here. We will no longer pretend like we NEED trade from the outside world. We do not. We are happy to establish fully reciprocal trade with those who are compatible, but we will not engage in irreciprocal trade with those who are not compatible. This is a matter of continued health, stability, & prosperity for our civilization on which we will not compromise.

The era of enriching a small few at the top, at the expense of the entire rest of the country, is over. America must operate in the interest of all its people & not just a few. We must adopt the appropriate policies & practices that will accomplish this, however unpopular that is with the corrupt & parasitic people & organizations who stand to lose. A country that does not look after the interests of its people does not remain a country for very long.

Companies who export & consume American wealth & prosperity by using foreign labor will not be tolerated. All those who violate this policy will be subject to criminal charges & immediate forfeiture of all company assets.

For over 7 decades, unfettered access to our markets in tandem with security guarantees, at our expense, has enabled the rest of world to grow, progress, & prosper at unprecedented rates. This has come at an enormous personal cost, hollowing out our communities, our economy, our manufacturing, & most of our industries; decimating our families & our demography, & damaging the very engine of procreation that allows the continued existence of our civilization.

It is time that we focus on our own growth, progress, & prosperity now. We must make the choices that are in our own best interests if we expect to survive & prosper as a civilization.

Apprenticeship & Education

3. All professionals, including skilled trades professionals, will be eligible for federal tax incentives if they become an active member or organizer of an Apprenticeship Program.

Those who actively participate in the leading, organizing, & running of Apprenticeship Programs will be eligible for federal tax incentives. (This is in return for the very important work of educating new generations of workers, which has obvious & tremendous value. No one else is in a better position to do it, have the expertise, & have the incentive to do it well, so that it has a positive impact on them, the community, & the profession as a whole.)

* – Businesses who participate in these programs will also be eligible for federal tax incentives.

[This puts control & benefit back into the hands of workers & their collective professions for their benefit & that of their communities.] [Working in conjunction with other policies, this practice helps ensure that the Regulation & Certification Industries are effectively dead & completely powerless, with no incentives or income source, & zero federal, state, or local backing or legitimacy. Dead.][This helps eliminate the administrative & bureaucratic waste, bloat, parasitism, & corruption endemic in all industries because of regulation & certification, & contributes to freeing up Renaissance Capital.]

.

Open to All professions.

  • Builds a qualified & experienced worker base
  • Reduces (or eliminates) the need for job training expenditures
  • Reduces (or eliminates) qualified labor shortages
  • Helps eliminate corrupt & parasitic regulation & certification industries
  • Builds community & a more cohesive society
  • Builds local, regional, & national rapport, trust, & pride,
  • Contributes considerably & continuously to the civic commons

Apprenticeship Programs, being vastly superior in their benefits to individuals, industry, business, & society as a whole, will take the place of all other applicable training & education programs wherever possible.

Real-world practical experience always beats theoretical learning, always. This is why people with experience always get hired before those without, regardless of educational or certification status. Education is always important, but is much more effective when it takes place within the context of actually practicing a profession.

4. All federal funds for STEM education will be available through universities, ONLY for those students who have joined an Apprenticeship Program in their field of interest. [This university STEM component will take care of any necessary base education & specialization that could not be provided in secondary school, or through Apprenticeship Programs.]

This has massive benefits over the current system, including:

It ensures that students already have a considerable level of applicable work experience, and industry & professional knowledge & training, prior to any expenditure on university training by the student, the university, or the government.

This is also the best method to ensure the long-term marketability, success, employment, & earning power of the student worker, as well as ensuring the ability to repay any educational costs within 5 years of graduation, from a capped percentage of deducted wages.

5 years is the maximum student debt term allowed. The university eats any cost unpaid beyond that term. The 5 yr maximum & capped % of deducted wages limits the incentive for tuition gouging on the part of the university{predatory parasitism}. This ensures the long-term health, viability, & societal benefit of the entire program.

.

Federal student aid will only be available for STEM fields, guarantor backed by the University, & ONLY under the Apprenticeship STEM program. All funds are repayable by the student within 5 years (of graduation) or forgiven, at the university’s expense. [All federal money is issued to the University, who is responsible for repayment to the US Treasury within 5 years of the student’s graduation date.] [Universities must make responsible contributions to student success & be held accountable for failures. The grotesque, corrupt, & parasitic organism they have become is unhealthy, destructive, completely unacceptable, & completely antithetical to societies’ needs from these institutions.]

Universities interested in participating in the Apprenticeship STEM program may apply for federal funds & participate in the program, if they are accepted into the program, and IF they continually meet all performance marks. All funds are repayable within 5 years of student graduation, regardless of recoup from students. In cases of failing to meet performance marks, all funds are repayable & due immediately, and all further participation in Apprenticeship STEM programs by the University will be prohibited.

.

This entire system puts power & benefits back in the hands of workers, professionals, & students; giving them the training, skills, experience, & marketability they need for success, productivity, & prosperity; allowing them to fully participate in the American dream, buy a home, have a family, & engage in the time-honored pursuit of happiness.

At the same time, this system takes power out of the hands of the completely corrupted & parasitic university system that is inflicted with a terminal cancer of administrative bloat, causing exploding tuition prices that have become monstrously expensive to the point of robbing an entire generation of young people of the opportunity to take part in the American dream. This grotesque & decaying system no longer produces a high percentage of graduates with marketable degrees, but rather produces a larger percentage of graduates with useless & unmarketable degrees with exorbitant & unjustifiable costs, both economically & socially, to those individual students, & to the society as a whole.

5. Predatory Educational Institution Reform

All student loans are forgiven, effective immediately.

(This will be done at the cost of the current university & student loan system.)

We believe it’s more than fair & appropriate that the corrupt & parasitic institutions who are responsible for, and who have benefited from the current crisis bear the brunt of the costs to resolve the crisis. This is why the university system & the student loan system will be responsible for those costs & will be held criminally liable if they are unwilling to pay.

All credit bureaus are immediately required to expunge all student loan related credit info on record & restore any credit damage resulting from them.

Failure to immediately comply will result in the immediate revocation of business licenses, complete company asset seizure, and arrest warrants issued for all participating company employees & officials, including the BOD.

There will be zero tolerance for predatory institutions who have fueled the education & student loan crisis that is strangling the younger generations & drowning them in debt for useless degrees. This corrupted & parasitic system is essentially barring an entire generation of young people from participating in the American dream & having families, which is contributing heavily to our civilizational decline, & especially to the disillusionment of the younger generations. All identifiable institutions, organizations, & individuals who have fueled & profited from this crisis will be required to fund & participate in the clean up, or face severe civil & criminal actions.

6. An End To Mass Immigration That Is Lowering Wages Below That Which Allows Child Rearing Within Single-Income Families

We must stop immigration until such time as wages rise enough to allow single-income families to be within reach of all Americans.

I don’t mean to belabor, but this is a fundamentally important point that bears repeating: It’s already well-known & well-established that outsourcing & mass immigration are the main causes of job opportunity shortages & artificially low wages. Job opportunity shortages & low wages, in turn, are the things that prevent people from being able to afford children & families, especially single-income families.

Return travel to your country of origin, or a secondary destination, so long as it is authorized by said country, will be provided to those in need when it is requested. Those who fail to comply will receive lifetime bans from participating in any future visa, visitation, or immigration & naturalization programs when programs are restarted, & will be subject to arrest & deportation. All citizens who assist non-citizen immigrants with refusing & violating exit requirements will be subject to arrest & prosecution.  Only legal immigration from compatible cultures by individuals who wish to assimilate & live as American citizens and participate in American culture & society will be tolerated or considered, and only at a time & pace that suits the needs of our people, the stability of our society, & the continued health & prosperity of our civilization.

Currency & Monetary Policy

7. Monetary Policy is set by, & under the direct & sole authority of the American people (US citizens), to be carried out by the US Treasury at our request.

Money will be created, coined, & printed under the direct & sole authority of the American people (US citizens), to be carried out by the US Treasury at our request.

The Federal Reserve System is hereby immediately dissolved. Effective immediately, all federal authority is revoked for all institutions within that system.

.

The very existence of the monetary system would not be possible without the American people, the trade amongst them, & their taxes. There would be no need for a monetary system or a currency without those things. It is only appropriate that the monetary system belong to, serve, & directly benefit the American people, & not a collection of special interests who disproportionately benefit from the system without adding anything of value or contributing any productive gains to the system in return.

.

The Federal Reserve banking system is ineffective & obsolete, having historically proven itself to be consistently unable to perform the basic functions necessary for our society’s monetary system to function in a healthy & stable manner, free from corruption & parasitism.

The use of such systems that result in a continually deteriorating value of the currency are ultimately not long-term viable. Additionally, predicated on parasitism at their core & deeply vulnerable to corruption, they are inherently unstable over the long term. Neither productive nor reciprocal, these are fatally flawed systems that can never achieve long-term stability & viability, & should not be considered viable options where increasing overall civilizational prosperity is the goal.

.

Countless volumes have been written on these financial & monetary issues. It is well beyond our scope to discuss every facet here. Many configurations will work. As we move away from an inherently parasitic & unstable system, the most important considerations are creating a sound & reasonable base, retaining authority over monetary policy, & protecting that system from corruption.

.

A sound & reasonable base:

1. Monetary policy and Currency policy under the direct & sole authority of the American people (US citizens), carried out by the US Treasury at our request.

2. Sound money that doesn’t devalue. (Gold/silver/basket of commodities-backed currency)

3. No Federal Reserve, no banks. (Parasitic, unproductive, & unstable by nature; they produce nothing & only take from the system, effectively robbing the American people of their wealth.)

4. Wise debt policy under the direct & sole authority of the American people (US citizens), carried out by the US Treasury at our request.

5. Citizen Account Monetary & Reserve System for the dispersal of federal monies, the housing of reserves, & the expansion or contraction of capital within the money system. 

Citizen Account Monetary & Reserve System (CAMRS) (Like “cameras”, so citizens can keep an eye on their money!) (see companion docs on CAMRS for specifics)

6. Elected Citizen Account Boards (ECAB): Sub-regional & local advisory boards, chosen yearly in a vote by the citizens of the sub-region & locality. – Businesses & individuals will come to these entities to apply for loans, taking the place of the parasitic Federal Reserve & banking system. (see companion docs on CAMRS for specifics)  

7. The reintroduction of accountability & criminal penalties to the financial world would go a very long way towards ensuring its long-term health & viability. The constant pressure from employing Reciprocal Law would do this well; leaving the ability to punish any irreciprocality, parasitism, or corruption, without needing a new law for every new financial product or procedure created. If it violates any of the 5 reciprocity tests, it’s not legal. The open gate for staying ahead of regulations & illegality by continually creating new products with new names would finally close for good.

.

This is our system. We should claim it, & take responsibility.

We are the ones providing the money in the first place (US citizen taxpayers), AND the ones on the hook when some problem develops in the system and needs something like a bailout; which we’ve provided frequently of late, now having bought this system many times over. So it’s fully appropriate, & it only makes sense that we retain COMPLETE & DIRECT AUTHORITY, CONTROL, & OWNERSHIP of the monetary system & monetary policy. This is imperative & not negotiable. Retaining that direct control, authority, & ownership is the only way we can absolutely ensure there will be no tolerance for fraud, corruption, parasitism, or runaway debt. And it’s the only way we can ensure that we have complete autonomy to make changes when necessary.

Beyond this sound & reasonable base, many things are possible, and many things may develop & bloom.

Governance – Instituting MODERN Government

An End to Inevitably Unresponsive Remote Government

Remote Government – The ultimate breeding ground for corruption, parasitism, & inevitably, tyranny.

The Troikas of Tyranny: Remote Government, Unelected Bureaucracy, & a Corrupted Judiciary

.

Reform & Reorganization

8. As remote government has been found to be completely corrupted & completely unresponsive to the needs of the American people; all federal authority, including legislative authority, is to be remanded to state & local authority effective immediately, within the bounds of the structure described below.

Federal legislative authority is hereby immediately replaced by state & local legislative authority, as described below:

.

The Process Overview:

1. State legislatures write, propose, & vote on legislation. Three-fourths approval of all states in a vote moves the legislation on to the Judicial Review stage.

2. A Judicial Review of the legislation is conducted to screen for constitutionality. (Described in detail in section 9 Judiciary.) [This stops unconstitutional laws BEFORE they are enacted, rather than after, as is done now.] If it passes Judicial Review, the legislation goes before the people for potential ratification.

3. Citizens in each county, of each state, vote on whether to approve the legislation.

a. Three-fourths of voters in each individual county must vote in favor of the legislation for it to be approved at the county level.

b. Three-fourths of the counties in each individual state must vote in favor of the legislation for it to be approved at the state level.

c. Three-fourths of all states must vote in favor of the legislation (each state by three-fourths majority of its respective counties) for it to be approved at the national level to become federal law.

.

This is a monumentally important corruption prevention mechanism. It takes the ultimate decision on legislation OUT of the hands of legislatures altogether. They simply suggest the legislation, & do the work & research, but in the end don’t get to make the final decision. The final decision on whether a piece of legislation becomes law is always in the hands of the people.

.

Again, for ratification:

COUNTY: Each county in a state votes on the legislation. Three-fourths of voters in each individual county must vote in favor of the legislation for it to be approved in that county. [This is sufficient to ratify county level laws.]

STATE: Each county in the state is tallied, & three-fourths of the counties must vote in favor of the legislation for it to be approved in that state.] [This is sufficient to ratify state level laws.]

NATIONAL: Three-fourths of all states must vote in favor of the legislation for it to be approved. (Each state still requiring three-fourths of its respective counties to approve the legislation, for it to pass in each individual state.) [This is sufficient to ratify national level laws.]

As far as I know, this is the least corruptible form of government.

It has robust corruption prevention mechanisms at every level.

It will make passing legislation by special interest groups virtually impossible.

The days of making large political contributions & delivering a prewritten copy of your preferred version of legislation, to be rubber-stamped by the legislature, would be over. That kind of bribery & buying of influence would join the dinosaurs.

The game of bribery & buying influence would become considerably more expensive, & considerably more dangerous to one’s continued health & freedom as well. First off, you would need enough money to buy three-fourths of the voters in every county in the entire nation. That’s 150 Million of the around 200 million registered voters. You would have to offer each of them enough that they might accept ($1,000? $10,000? $50,000?). But let’s be more fair:

Assume only 40% vote = 60 million x 3/4 = 45 Million. Even if you buy everyone’s vote at the low range, you’re looking at $45,000,000,000 each time you need to buy a vote.

$45 Billion in spare change every time you need to buy a vote. Maybe you figure half would have voted your way anyway, in which case:

$22.5 Billion each time you need to buy a vote. Good luck figuring out which half is which, by the way, and which 40% will vote in the first place.

Also, good luck keeping this nebulous group of between 22 & 150 Million people quiet about what’s going on so you can stay out of jail & avoid the gallows. 

Every corrupt parasite reading this just went to get a clean pair of shorts.

You’re welcome.

One of the best things about this system, we already have the infrastructure in place to make it work, right now, today. The polling stations, along with state & county government bodies & the judiciary already exist. We could institute this tomorrow if we wanted.

.

Process Recap:

So, ultimately a (federal) law must:

1. be passed by three-fourths of the state legislatures

2. pass a Judicial Review to insure it does not violate Constitutionality (based on Reciprocal Law jurisprudence)

3. be ratified by the people at the county, state, & national level.

.

The people, always & forever, remain in complete control of the institution of government by having the final deciding voice.

Additionally, any citizen or group of citizens has the right to put forth & introduce legislation to be considered for law through the usual process, beginning with judicial review.

Also, any citizen or group of citizens has the right to challenge the impartiality or legitimacy of any legislator or judicial member if they have reason to believe violations, neglect, dereliction, or corruption has occurred, or is occurring. A regular judicial trial with a jury will be conducted. By these measures, the people are protected from corruption of the legislative & judicial branches, & potential obstructive efforts thereof.

.

What this accomplishes:

No more special interest influence or legislation.

No more corruption in government.

No large population centers will have influence outside of their immediate territory. They will have no ability to set laws & rules for other areas, imposing their will on distant populations, just because of the size of their own population.

Federal-level laws will be difficult to pass, which is a very good thing. This will force people to work towards laws that are truly in the best interest of, & beneficial to, all of the people, rather than a small collection of special interests. It would be difficult or impossible to pass legislation that wasn’t in the vast majority of people’s interests. This will virtually eliminate frivolous law & legislation. It has no chance of passage.

It also incentivizes people of different groups to work together towards mutually beneficial goals, because that is the only viable option. Options for irreciprocal gains are no longer available. It would force people into a market of cooperation because that is the only available path.

.

This puts the power back in the hands of local people to have true self-governance.

It puts an end to the tyranny of remote government.

It allows local people to live under the laws that they see fit, protecting & facilitating the way of life they have chosen.

*********************************************

This proposal, in its totality, represents something I don’t think we’ve had for a very long time in this country:

A government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Modern Governance, honoring founding principles.

.

The government apparatus of our founders was last implemented when the horse & buggy was still the best form of travel we had; the candle & the lantern the only form of artificial light.

The world has changed much since that time. While the founding ideals & principals are as relevant now as they were over 200 years ago, the structure of government is now badly outdated, ineffective, inefficient, & corrupted. The government apparatus itself is obsolete.

It’s time to embrace founding ideals & principals, still revolutionary & inspiring to this very day, using a modern structure of government.

 A government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Modern Governance, embracing founding principles.

.

If we the people, take responsibility, exercise our sovereignty, & implement solutions, this becomes more than words on a page. This becomes our reality.

Judiciary

As a corruption prevention mechanism:

9. All federal legislation will be required to pass Judicial Review to screen for constitutionality BEFORE becoming law.

Each Judicial Review will be conducted by a group of judges randomly chosen by lottery from a pool of all qualified judges. After the review is complete and a decision on constitutionality is made, a final recheck of the validity & constitutionality of the legislation will be performed by a separate & additional group of judges, again randomly chosen by lottery from a pool of all qualified judges. Reciprocal Law jurisprudence is to be applied & followed.

Any judge or citizen can request a review of any decision at any time on grounds of suspected corruption or suspected violation of jurisprudence principles. Any judges found to be violating Reciprocal Law jurisprudence will be immediately banned from the bench for life.

Legislators found to be presenting legislation violating Reciprocal Law jurisprudence will be immediately banned from any role in government for life.

.

9 a.) Reciprocal Law jurisprudence will become the official standard of jurisprudence that all judges, juries, & law must adhere to. No other form of jurisprudence will be sanctioned, used, accepted, or tolerated.

An end to enacting unconstitutional laws.

An End to the Unelected Federal Bureaucracy – One leg in the Tripod of Tyranny:

Remote Government, Unelected Bureaucracy, & a Corrupted Judiciary

11. All federal employees within the unelected bureaucracy, particularly the SES & OPM,   are released from duty immediately.

To achieve reduced power distances more responsive to the needs of the American people, & due to advances in modern computerized administration & communications, the need for obsolete legacy administration has been eliminated. As such, the size of government will be reduced considerably.

As unelected bureaucracy has been identified as a major component contributing to the unresponsiveness of government to the needs of citizens, in addition to contributing massively to administrative bloat & the cost of government; all employees within the Senior Executive Service (SES) & under the authority of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), as well as the OPM itself, are immediately dismissed.

SES & OPM links:

https://ballotpedia.org/Senior_Executive_Service

https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/senior-executive-service/

From the OPM website: {emphasis mine}

“Members of the SES serve in the key positions just below the top Presidential appointees. SES members are the major link between these appointees and the rest of the Federal workforce. They operate and oversee nearly every government activity in approximately 75 Federal agencies.

“The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) manages the overall Federal executive personnel program, providing the day-to-day oversight and assistance to agencies as they develop, select, and manage their Federal executives.”

This should make it pretty clear why, even when we vote in someone who genuinely tries to enact certain policies or even clean house, they are obstructed at every turn & unable to get anything meaningful or lasting accomplished. This unelected administrative entity sits on top of government like a parasite, constantly sucking up & redirecting money & resources, & constantly obstructing the efforts of our elected officials at every turn. When we are lucky enough to elect officials who earnestly try to implement desperately needed changes, these are the parasites who obstruct them, effectively ensuring nothing but the status quo is ever possible.  

This administrative parasite engulfing the whole of government is a major source of cost, waste, incompetence, & corruption that spreads uncontrollably like a terminal cancer. They are unelected, completely unaccountable, & almost impossible to fire. If they are finally fired or reassigned, they are just replaced with another parasitic drone who does the bidding of whatever monied interests or political faction that pulls their strings. This entire parasitic entity, made up of the SES & the OPM, is a major reason why government is unresponsive to the needs of the people.

12. Informed Voter Requirements – Protecting Culture, Civilization, & Institutions by Requiring Minimum Standards of Process & Citizenship Knowledge For The Privilege of Voting (Just like requiring demonstrated knowledge & ability for a driver’s license.)

Voting should be seen as a privilege that everyone has the right to earn.

Our concepts, views, & practices around voting & voting requirements have become destructive to our republic & ignore the realities of our world. If this were not true & they were working appropriately as designed, we would not find ourselves in the position that we are in; drowning in corruption & under attack from all sides. We have come to ask & require far too little from people in return for the benefits of citizenship. Citizenship has certain requirements in order for a civilization to be able to maintain healthy governmental institutions. One of those requirements is a basic level of knowledge & understanding about the rules, values, & systems of government in our culture & why they’re important to protect.

Voters, exercising one of the most important sovereign responsibilities of citizenship, must be able to demonstrate a basic level of knowledge & understanding about the rules, values, & systems of government in our culture & why they’re important to protect, in order to be eligible to vote.

If you do not wish to vote, then you do not have to demonstrate that competence, just as, if you do not wish to drive, you do not need to demonstrate that competence. Everyone who is capable of getting a drivers license is capable of meeting Informed Voter Requirements. Those who are genuinely not capable of doing that need our care, not our empty platitudes of inclusion.

If you wish to exercise a privilege that can do great damage to others, you must demonstrate that you have the knowledge to exercise that privilege responsibly & competently. The idea that you should be able, or have a right to exercise a privilege with reckless disregard for the damage & harm it does to others is ludicrous, dangerous, & unacceptable. We must require demonstrated knowledge & competence in our voting citizenry just as we do with our drivers. It’s absolutely criminal to allow others to be harmed, whether catastrophically or minorly, by not doing so.

The demonstration of responsibility & accountability in matters of potential harm to others is a core expectation in our society.

It’s imperative that we ensure an educated & informed voting citizenry if we are to maintain highly functioning governmental institutions. Voters must be able to demonstrate a basic level of knowledge & understanding about the rules, values, & systems of government in our culture & why they’re important to protect. That’s not only completely legitimate, but something we should have been doing all along. We already have much more stringent requirements just for getting a drivers license than we do for voting. It would be completely appropriate to require a certain level of knowledge for voters, just like we do for drivers, especially as we transition to a more citizen-centric governance. The idea of giving people the responsibility of a vote without requiring any knowledge or responsibility in return is no less dangerous than allowing someone to drive without requiring any knowledge or responsibility. In fact, it’s considerably more dangerous, & to a much larger number of people over a much greater length of time.

If you wish to vote, you have a duty & a responsibility as a citizen to be educated & informed.

The harm that can potentially be done by voting despite a lack of the required knowledge is actually far, far greater than even the worst automobile accident. It’s just that with a wreck, the damage is immediate, immediately obvious, & quite high profile. On the other hand, with damage done by voting despite a lack of required knowledge which results in institutional or systemic corruption, parasitism, or some similar harm; the effects can be delayed & spread out over time such that the true damage is not as immediately apparent or obvious. However, the cost is much, much greater, affecting vastly more people, possibly even for multiple generations. The potential for damage can be absolutely catastrophic. With this type of risk involved, it’s absolutely reckless, negligent, & unacceptable to continue requiring less knowledge & responsibility for voting eligibility than we do for driving a car. The risks are monumentally & catastrophically higher for generations of people, & that absolutely warrants requiring a higher level of demonstrated knowledge & responsibility. It’s completely legitimate to argue that we must require this higher level of demonstrated knowledge & responsibility, lest we be guilty of negligence ourselves in the exercise of our own sovereign responsibilities.

Citizenship & voting are sovereign responsibilities that have costs & requirements. If we fail to meet those requirements or pay those costs, we give up our sovereignty.

***********************************************************************

A Common, Repeated, & Increasingly Frequent Mistake:

A large part of why we find ourselves in the position we are now in is because with growing frequency we tend to be moving towards consistently giving people privileges & responsibilities without requiring any knowledge or responsibility in return, & without explicitly requiring competence & accountability. This is an untenable position if we wish to keep healthy institutions that serve the interests of our civilization. It’s an untenable position if we wish to keep a healthy, functioning republic. We need to require demonstration of knowledge & competence prior to giving privileges & responsibilities, while holding those who fall short accountable when they do not uphold responsibilities they willingly agreed to. This is how people learn. Give them clear expectations, provide feedback on performance, & then give them the previously defined positive or negative reinforcement (consequences). This is how people learn to develop & demonstrate maturity from the time they’re children. This is how we’ve always done things in our culture because it’s necessary, & because it works. We must restore this basic practice within the whole of our civilization. We should not give privileges & responsibilities to those who cannot demonstrate sufficient knowledge & competence, nor should we fail to hold those with privileges or in positions of responsibility accountable when they fall short. When we do that, we violate basic laws of learning & behavior, & reciprocity. When we do that, we teach others that they can receive privilege & responsibility without being knowledgeable, competent, responsible, & accountable themselves. We feed into the growth of irreciprocal behavior & expectations when we do that. When we repeat that pattern, we contribute to the growth of a low-trust society, & inhibit the growth of a high-trust society, which continually erodes our prosperity & stability.

There are very good reasons why we don’t let children make adult decisions for themselves until they’ve demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge, maturity, competence, responsibility, & accountability. The mechanism this practice operates on, those same reasons & principles, are applicable for privileges & positions of responsibility throughout the whole of our society, & for all ages. These principles should be applied to all those seeking privilege or positions of responsibility in our society, whatever the position or nature of the responsibility; driver’s license, voting eligibility, political positions, etc. First, you must demonstrate a level of knowledge, maturity, & competence that is appropriate to the level of privilege & responsibility you’re seeking. Then, you must acknowledge & practice a willingness to be accountable when you fall short. Without insisting upon that full cycle, we contribute to the growth of unhealthy, irreciprocal behavior & expectations, & poor outcomes within the whole of society.

We must restore these basic practices & requirements across the board within our civilization, but particularly with respect to voting, citizenship, & political service.

If we do not embrace practices that encourage the growth of knowledgeable, responsible, competent, & accountable citizens, voters, & political servants, we are embracing the inevitable decline & decay of our civilization.

In many cases we simply lack the mechanisms for implementing either knowledge or accountability requirements. Just as importantly, we lack the will to include & implement those mechanisms, or even think about them, because we don’t acknowledge their fundamental importance to the success of our institutions, our culture, & our civilization as a whole. If we truly endeavor to increase our prosperity & preserve our heritage, that must change, & we must employ corruption-free institutional design when we create & implement the mechanisms that will require the appropriate knowledge & accountability.

.

.

New-development Addendum:

Perfectly representing our failure to require competence & accountability from those in positions of responsibility are the Coronavirus event & the premeditated, pre-organized rioting & inciting of violence across the country. Both of these events, & the complete & utter incompetence & failure of leadership at all levels surrounding them, deserve volumes more ink than I can possibly give them here. I bring it up only to outline & further underscore a very long pattern of continued incompetence & failure of leadership at all levels & the need for us to take responsibility. No one will do this for us. By now, especially in light of recent events, that much should be abundantly clear.

One of the most important jobs of a leader is to take responsibility for failures.

When is the last time you can remember anyone in a leadership position taking responsibility for a failure?

Has anyone in a leadership position taken responsibility for any of the recent failures?

Has your trust in leadership & their competence increased or decreased of late?

Passing the buck, shifting blame, & deflecting responsibility are not qualities of leadership. They are signs of incompetence, weakness of character, corruption, & cowardice. They are a blatant rejection of responsibility & accountability.

Truth, transparency, the acceptance of responsibility, & the willingness to be accountable, no matter how difficult, inconvenient, or unpopular, are signs of strength & leadership.

Of late, we have had an increasing abundance of one of those groupings, & a devastating lack of the other.

.

What failed, who was responsible?

Leadership, on both accounts.

There were failures of intelligence gathering, failures to act upon intelligence already freely & widely available, & the gross inability to form & enact coherent & cohesive plans of action that were at the root of all of these recent failures to appropriately address recent threat events. All of the responsibility for these failures can be laid directly at the feet of leadership; the result of gross incompetence, negligence, & dereliction of duty.

The lack of action, the lack of responsibility, & the lack of accountability that continues to this very day is absolutely unconscionable, unacceptable, & intolerable.

Competence & accountability are minimum requirements for positions of leadership & responsibility.

Accountability for this unprecedented negligence & incompetence must not fall by the wayside.

The health & continued existence of our republic is at stake.

12a. All voting citizens must be armed with a serviceable rifle & hand gun as a part of the Second Amendment defense of our Nation, our communities, & our unalienable rights; against enemies foreign & domestic; against tyranny from abroad & right here at home. Tax incentives will be available for the purchase & periodic use & maintenance of armaments to ensure continued proficiency.

It is our duty as citizens to provide for, & participate in, the defense of our nation, our culture, our people, our communities, & our unalienable rights. If you wish to enjoy the benefits of citizenship, you must also be willing to contribute to the costs, & invest in the institutions necessary for stability & security. Sovereignty & freedom are not free.

An armed citizenry is fundamental to the prevention of tyranny, & the defense of a nation from enemies both foreign & domestic. It is one of the strongest deterrents at our disposal. Simply having the capability helps to ensure we may never need to use it. Lacking the capability almost guarantees that we will need it, but not have it.

The very existence of an armed citizenry, organized to enable action whenever necessary, is fundamental to crushing attempts at tyranny whenever & wherever they try to take root.

As recent events have proven, we face many aspiring upstarts of tyranny right now in various stages of development. A return to founding principles, including an armed citizenry with the ability for quick & independent action will be instrumental to crushing these very real threats. They thrive now only because we have gutted the mechanisms needed to deter them & root them out.

Recent events have made it more clear than ever why we need a strong, armed citizenry to assist in our defense. This Citizen Defense Force should exist in every single community throughout the entire country.

It is abundantly clear from the lack of response by leadership at all levels to recent threats that no one will do this for us. We must take responsibility.

An armed citizenry is a necessary part of a healthy, sovereign republic.

Additionally, with food scarcity increases in many parts of the world, farming once again becomes a more viable way to make a living, supplying higher incomes, even for small farmers. We should take full advantage of this opportunity to reinvigorate a sector that has been absolutely decimated by decades of foolish & short-sighted policy.

The phrase intelligence bureaucracy is an oxymoron. There is no intelligence to be found anywhere in bureaucracy.

.

We live in a dangerous world with serious enemies who constantly seek ways to do us harm. (As recent events have sharply underscored.)

The dangerous nature of that world has existed throughout all of human history, & likely always will.

Until the day we can buy the world a puppy & hand out free pony rides to effectively mitigate threats, we will need competent & effective field agents with the ability & authority to make quick & confident decisions about fast moving, ever-evolving, & increasingly complicated threats. We will need them unfettered from an incompetent, lethargic, & increasingly fearful & unrealistically risk-averse bureaucracy to be able to reliably accomplish that task every day with the speed, accuracy, & competence required.

One good field agent is worth more than 100 million bureaucrats.

*******************************************************************

After recent threat events, & a complete failure by leadership at all levels to effectively address them, is there anyone who really believes that any of our leaders are prepared for, or even capable of, taking responsibility or demonstrating even a modicum of competence? Years-long festering threats that anyone with an internet connection was aware of, were allowed to grow into events that threatened the safety & well-being of all Americans, everywhere across the country. Again, I should point out. Because this is not the first time this has happened. It’s just the most recent example of an avoidable threat, not avoided. Despite the clear, obvious, & years-long existence & growth of this threat, NOTHING was done to address it. Despite the most expansive growth of intelligence gathering & policing powers in the history of our country, NOTHING was done to address this threat. This was an unconscionable, unacceptable, & intolerable failure of leadership. We must free our field agents from the failed, foolish, clueless, negligent, & wholly incompetent bureaucratic leadership. They are an existential threat to the American people, our communities, our republic, & our very way of life. They have not, & will not take responsibility for this failure. They refuse to take responsibility & they refuse to act. We must take responsibility where they refuse.

END THE CORRUPTED, INCOMPETENT, & UNACCOUNTABLE BUREAUCRACY, WHEREVER IT EXISTS.

Few understand the failures of leadership within the intelligence gathering apparatus better than Sam Faddis, a retired thirty year veteran of our intelligence gathering services. Providing deep insights from his insider’s perspective, he has written extensively about the decline of leadership in our intelligence gathering system; explaining what went wrong & why, & how we might start to fix it.

His insights into intelligence gathering go beyond the sensationalized movie representations most of us are more familiar with & get to the heart of what we stand to gain when intelligence gathering is done right, & what we lose when it’s done wrong & opportunities are missed. As he points out in one piece, an audio interview with a former colleague, intelligence agencies can be used to avoid war, when they’re leveraged properly (which they haven’t been of late):

 Ground Truth: The Growing China – Iran Unholy Alliance

In another interview, he discusses the current failures to address the premeditated, pre-organized nationwide rioting & incitement to violence; the failure to address its organization during the long growth period before it became a well-organized nationwide danger, & the failure to address it even days after cities nationwide were ravaged by violent rioting, brutal assaults & homicides, & the widespread & deliberate burning of buildings:

23. Second Amendment Preserve Ordinances in Every Locality.

A necessary & additional layer of support for our Second Amendment rights; our best deterrent & last guard against tyranny, & a powerful tool for the defense of our nation against enemies both foreign & domestic.

As mentioned, I realize some of these things are already in our Constitution. Yet, here we are, under siege from all sides, finding ourselves once again in the position of having to defend all of our unalienable rights.

Perhaps a single layer of protection, the Constitution, isn’t enough. Perhaps we need to enumerate those protections at the local level, within each community as well. And not just for our 2A rights, but all of our unalienable rights; all of which are pre-existing rights that predate the Constitution, the state constitutions, & all government bodies. In other words, these rights are inherent. No entity, body, institution, or law, past, present, or future, has the authority to infringe upon any of those unalienable rights.

These ordinances preserve & protect inherent, pre-existing rights.

Official, Public Recognition & Celebration of Our Unique American Heritage

24. Official, public recognition & celebration of the uniqueness of our heritage & our culture, & its roots descending from the great western civilizations. 

We are a continuation of the great western civilizations & we carry with us many of the same unique characteristics, practices, & traditions, as well as some characteristics uniquely our own. We have a unique & continuing bond with our cousin civilizations in Western Europe, who are also a continuation of the great western civilizations that we also wish to celebrate & embrace. We look to renew & reinforce those bonds in ways that are mutually beneficial to both civilizations, & celebratory of each other’s greatest strengths & achievements.

National holidays, celebrations, & monuments to mark & enumerate our unique qualities & characteristics, & celebrate our most important figures & ideals.

.

Increasingly, our culture, our history, & our heritage, is under constant attack. Our nation of communities must answer this attack in one strong, unified voice if we are to survive as a distinct culture, & preserve our heritage, our history, & our future.

We must proudly, publicly, & unapologetically celebrate our unique American culture and its roots descending from the great western civilizations. We must not tolerate those who attack us & seek to suppress our ability to publicly celebrate the value & uniqueness of our American heritage. We must spotlight these attacks for what they are; attempts to undermine & destroy our culture, our heritage, & our history, & with it, our future. We must respond to these attacks with renewed celebration & a strengthened resolve to protect our unique & valuable culture & traditions. And we must hold those who are responsible accountable for costs imposed when they damage & attempt to destroy the things we hold dear & valuable, particularly those things which represent valuable civic commons that we have built up & contributed to over many generations, such as truth-telling, & a high-trust society.

.

As the first addition honoring, highlighting, & celebrating the unique characteristics of our civilization & our culture, I would like to propose Truth Day.

Truth Day – Honoring the most valuable & expensive civic commons on the planet, truth; truth-telling; truth before face.  (Celebrated the first Saturday on or after the summer solstice.) (A federally recognized holiday & celebration.)

On the day of longest light, let truth shine brightly through the darkness.

These ordinances can operate as a second layer of protection, in addition to the Constitution, in guarding all of our unalienable rights, & more. Clearly one layer is not enough, because despite that layer of protection, we find ourselves under attack from all sides; our unalienable rights, our institutions, our culture, our traditions, our history, our heritage, our prosperity, & our future. This second layer of protection, in addition to protecting our rights, can help us constantly suppress & eliminate corruption, parasitism, & all manner of irreciprocality; contributing to the growth of truth, a high-trust society, & increased prosperity & stability; protecting our culture, our people, our communities, & our republic for generations to come & far into the foreseeable future.

This second layer of protection, spread throughout every community across the nation, cross-protects every other community, its ordinances, its people, & their rights, as well as the Constitution. Cross-protected from every angle, it would no longer be enough for the corrupt & would be tyrants of the world to breach the protections of the Constitution alone in seeking their ends; they would need to breach & weaken not only the Constitution, but every single ordinance, in every single community, throughout the entire nation. No force on the planet has the kind of power that requires besides one, the American people.

.

In an accelerated time frame, I have done my best to address implementable solutions for the core issues that face us. However, this work remains unfinished. It will remain unfinished, until the people of this nation act within their local communities to:

Take Responsibility.

.

************************************************************************

************************************************************************

.

To all the corrupt & parasitic groups & individuals who don’t like these proposals; to all the elitists & so-called “experts” who think you know better:

We tried it your way & you failed, miserably.

It’s our responsibility now.  

.

To all the patriots, those who embrace America, American heritage, the Constitution, & the American people:

Take responsibility.

.

************************************************************************

.

It is no accident or coincidence that much of this list of proposed solutions is written in the voice of a public decree.

This is very much a call to action for every individual in our nation of communities to take responsibility. Implement these solutions in your communities, much like the counties in Virginia & across the nation are implementing their 2nd Amendment sanctuaries (preserves) & ordinances. It only makes sense that the protection of all of our unalienable rights, & the restructuring of government has its roots of power there, at the local community level. Make no mistake, the only way we will be able to implement these solutions is by acting together as a nation of communities, unified, speaking in one voice, acting at the local community & county level. That strategy is the equivalent of sparking millions of fires of sovereignty, freedom, & rebellion against tyranny across the entire country, all at once. No power on the planet has the ability to simultaneously put out these millions of fires spread across the entire nation besides one, the American people. No one can oppose us if we decide to act in that manner. No corrupt or tyrannical establishment faction or force, & no collection of special interests can stand against that. It is up to us to take responsibility & implement these solutions. We must take responsibility to do these things for ourselves. No one will do this for us. Not our leaders, not our officials, not our so-called “experts” or “elites”, & not our intellectuals. They have abandoned & refused their responsibility. They have long refused to act. It is up to us now. We must take responsibility where they refuse to act.

Gather together with your friends & family, those that you know & trust, & bring these changes & solutions to your community, to your county, city, & municipal governments. Create ordinances in support of IMPLEMENTING the SOLUTIONS you require. Follow the 2A sanctuary (preserve) counties template, & combine with that movement. Adopt Ordinances supportive of Solutions you require, copied from here &/or other sources. Use all of your ordinances to defend, protect, & support your people, your communities, your other ordinances, & all of your unalienable rights wherever & whenever needed. Support your neighboring communities in their attempt to do the same. Publish your generalized templates for how you’ve organized it wherever you’re active online for everyone else to follow. If our nation of communities answers this call, there is no force on the planet that can stop us.

The first step is having these discussions in your community. Familiarize everyone with the ideas, options, & solutions now. Prepare ordinances outlining the Solutions & their Implementation, follow the structure & template of the 2A preserves movement, & combine with them in support & protection of all of your unalienable rights against tyrants ravenous for their removal. After exposure to the ideas, solutions, & ordinances, when the time comes for implementation, everyone will already be comfortable with the knowledge of what needs to be done & how to go about it. And our nation of communities will have already made it clear to the world, by having proclaimed in a very clear voice what they want, expect, & require, & what they will not tolerate.

Comments Sections – An Educational Resource & A Civic Commons

When I open a comments section, it no longer belongs to me alone. It becomes a civic commons.

It belongs to all the people who make valuable contributions to it, & all of the people who benefit from that; past, present, & future.

Anyone who makes uninformed, disingenuous, or malicious contributions is stealing from that civic commons. They are stealing the value of that civic commons, that property, from everyone else who contributes, & everyone else who might have benefited. This is parasitism. Taking from others for your own personal gains and offering nothing of value in exchange, while also polluting the content; much like someone would pollute a water source leaving everyone else unable to drink from it, or worse, making them sick when they do. It’s a parasitic theft. And it’s a parasitic theft with long term-damages, & sometimes with the intent to inflict long-term damages. Anyone who engages in that type of behavior spotlights themselves as a person of poor character & malicious intent. This is a symptom & a clue. Such people generally make those same decisions in many, if not all aspects of their lives. These are the people who have adopted a parasitic lifestyle. These are the people who constantly take from society & give nothing in return except pollution. These people are the enemy that we fight against.

If you’re intent on being that enemy, having identified yourself as a person of poor character & malicious intent, in this context, you’ll likely just be ignored. No one is likely to take the time to engage in pointless battle with the hordes of Straw Man Army parasites that seem endemic on internet comment sections, nor add to the volume of that pollution by doing so.

If you want to contribute, please add something of value to the civic commons, increase the value of our cultural property.

.

You can think of this as a self-service portal that people can drink from if they’re thirsty, while leaving something to drink for others if they have it to spare.

Where to start?

It probably makes sense to start with the Second Amendment Preserve Ordinance & the Free Speech (Liberty) Ordinance as a way to familiarize your community with the ideas & methods for organization. It should be pretty easy for people to get behind those things as a cause, and it’s a pretty easy & nonthreatening approach to make. As people are more comfortable & knowledgeable, they can delve into the other aspects. Then once you’ve got your community comfortable, you can work your way deeper into the other ordinances & maybe start doing some outreach with neighboring communities to get them started.

Think of all of this maybe like a phone tree response, in terms of the initial organization & building, but then also in response to events or crises once you’re organized (like a march against your community by an outside enemy {antifa/blm/etc}, or tyranny by local/state/national officials). The call goes out to everyone in your community through a phone tree, as well as to some key people in your neighboring communities, where they activate their community’s phone tree & come to your assistance (just as you must do for them when the call comes).

.

It’s a new day patriots.

Time to take responsibility.
