Waking

I have adjusted my prospective. I am making further adjustments as needed. I have seen beyond left and right, liberation for all is my political philosophy. Kindness is my party. Living is my revolutionary action.

Love life as it is, do not wait until it is as you wish it to be.

Venting ;)

I'd rather live and die a good man than a rich one. Greed is a sin!

Honestly, I believe in the freedom of individuals to engage in the market, and I despise state control (unless that state belongs to the people and is limited in it's regulatory role.)

I believe in liberty and social responsibility.

I am willing to find common ground with those who are willing to do the same--BUT conservatives are demanding all the ground and that we all conform to their world view.

I think it is time for the social liberation movement to begin. The culture wars have been being fought exclusively by the authoritarians (because COINTELPRO destroyed the left.) It is time we fought back--not by taking away rights, but by expanding them.

Seriously, the U.S. gov supports right wing governments around the world and actively works to undermine leftist governments--why do all the right wingers think the government is after them? Maybe they are right, maybe after wiping out the left they will be free to go after the right. (I think that might actually be so.) That is why right and left need to come together to form a peoples coalition against oligarchy.

Beck is right, there is a neo-feudal order trying to establish itself--but it's not coming from the left, it is coming from the Master Class.

simple enough, really

The war on drugs makes sense as a job security measure for police. Waste resources persecuting people who use drugs not allowed in the market and there will not be enough resources to stop violent criminals--and as long as there are violent criminals running around the citizenry will have to accept tax increases for more funding for the prison industrial complex.

Seriously

We need to save the world! Don't panic, many of the problems of the past have been overcome (we have a good track record.) Unfortunately, we are collectively facing a greater peril than any have faced in the life of our species--or at least since humanity has inhabited more than one geographical region. The very fabric of our life support system (the environment) is in rapid ravel--WE ARE WITNESSING A MASS EXTINCTION.

Do not panic. If you do not know about it or do not believe it, research it (YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.) You need to understand why we all need to act immediately.

The good news is that we will make it through just fine if we do what needs done. Start now! Start where you know what to do, then add behaviors as you learn them (and ACTIVELY learn them.) If you have any questions, just ask.

SOME EASY START TIPS:
Buy less, recycle, compost, walk more, eat more plants, take time out to relax and enjoy what you have (so you don't think you need more than you do.)

It can be better

All the talk of "job creators" is distraction from the real issue of wealth creators and wealth extractors. If you make things or do things for people then you are adding to the wealth--whereas, if you take more than you give you are a wealth extractor. Financiers, the idle rich, the idle poor, and children are wealth extractors (children are an investment and the poor deserve mercy;) the rest of us, the workers, are the wealth creators. The working poor have it the worst, making wealth for the wealthy while barely surviving. The world can be a better place than this.

The corrupt life of the divine market

The prevailing conservative world view is that markets are divine and should not be regulated, but living beings are inherently corrupt and need every aspect of their behavior regulated.

I am of the mind that life is divine and money is simply a tool. The living should have as much liberty as can be ethically had (total liberty, save the liberty of the rest.) Whereas money, being a tool like a hammer, should be used to build things and be forbidden from being used to cause harm.

Interactivist

Please change what you want to make it work, then post your version on your own blog (with a link here to the original.)

The following is an excerpt from my book, REvolution:

Part III

A
Universal
Egalitarian
Constitution


Preamble to the Constitution for An Egalitarian Order

We, humans, having reason, are born with the inalienable right to live our lives as we see fit. We are the sole owners of our bodies, minds, and labor; and as our histories have proven many times, we need a legal structure to defend our rights from those who seek to exploit us and to enforce our responsibilities in order to prevent us from exploiting each other. The foundation of our legal structures are constitutions; and it being the nature of power to corrupt, we must avoid granting too much power to institutions and organizations of governing, so it is that we are compelled to implement a universal constitution to govern all self-aware beings.


The Constitution for a Universal Egalitarian Order

Total liberty, save the liberty of the rest; shall be the base of all law. No laws can be enforced that do not hold to this base.

The only restrictions on individual liberty are those that are needed to ensure equal liberty for all.

All laws must adhere to the hierarchy of rights and responsibilities; the supreme rights and responsibilities are those of the individual, followed by the rights and responsibilities of the collective—which may manifest as a state, or any other organization that individuals so deem fit—and last in the hierarchy are the rights and responsibilities of business—business being integral to human organization makes it essential to regulate, and the impact on individual liberty makes it essential to limit those regulations.


The Rights and Responsibilities of the Individual:

It is the right of the individual to live life as one sees fit, so long as they do not infringe upon the equal liberty of others; and to aid in the pursuit of one’s life, it is the right of the individual to have housing, healthcare, food, security, education, and vocation—these rights will henceforth be called the six rights of the individual.

It is the right of the individual to engage or refrain from engagement in the market.

It is the responsibility of the individual to make a good faith effort to learn how to conduct one’s life in an ethical manner so as to not infringe upon the equal liberty of others.

It is the responsibility of the individual to actively seek to learn critical thinking skills in order to secure the rights of oneself, and to defend the rights of the collective, and to defend the universal constitution and the order it protects.


The Rights and Responsibilities of The Collective:

It is the right of the collective to be free from the tyranny of any who infringe upon the equal liberty of all.

It is the right of the collective to actively protect the web of life in any way that does not infringe upon the equal liberty of all.

It is the right of the collective to form unions, or any organization(s) to implement and protect the equal liberty of all, so long as it does not infringe upon the liberties of the individual.

It is the right of the collective to do what is necessary to ensure the six rights of the individual, so long as it does not infringe upon the equal liberty of all.

It is the responsibility of the collective to nurture the individual by designing and implementing plans to support the six rights of the individual.

It is the responsibility of the collective to protect the web of life.

It is the responsibility of the collective to ensure the survival of humanity and the biodiversity of life through the responsible and ethical exploration and colonization of space.


The Rights and Responsibilities of Business:

It is the right of business, as operated by either an individual or collective of individuals, to engage in the market.

It is the right of business to reasonably profit from ethical endeavors that are of benefit, so long as such actions do not infringe upon the equal liberty of all.

It is NOT a right of business to be deemed an individual, to engage in usury, to pollute the physical environment nor the socio-cultural environment, to own land, nor to own any steak in other businesses.

It is the responsibility of business to be of benefit to life, and to actively seek good citizenship over profits.

It is the responsibility of business to support the six rights of the individual, and at the very least to not impede them in any way.

It is the responsibility of business to have the uncoerced consent of the majority of individuals within the community/ies wherein the business operates.

It is the responsibility of business to create no waste.





Upon ratification by 2/3 of individuals within a community, this constitution becomes law within that community, thereby amending or, when need be, abolishing any laws that do not conform to this constitution.

Upon ratification by 2/3 of humanity, this constitution becomes law for humanity, thereby amending or, when need be, abolishing existing laws.

All laws conforming to this constitution are neither amended nor abolished by this act.

This constitution can be amended by a majority of 4/5 of all individuals.
The amendment process is initiated when called for by 3/5 of all individuals.
