"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day. But a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly proves a deliberate systematic plan of reducing us to slavery."

how Takers steal human rights

First get the Native to cooperate as it is much easier to steal someone's human rights when they cooperate:

Make him a non-person. human rights are for people. Con-vince Natives their ancestors were savages, that they were pagan, that Natives are drunkards. Make them wards of the government. Make a legal distinction, as in the Indian Act, between Indians and persons. Write history books that tell half the story.

Con-vince the Native that he should be patient, that these things take time. Tell him that we are making progress, and that progress takes time.

Make the Native believe that things are being done for his own good. Tell him you're sure that after he has experienced your laws and actions that he will realise how good they have been.

Tell the Native he has to take a little of the bad in order to enjoy the benefits you are conferring on him.

Get some Native people to do all the dirty work. There are always those who will act for you to the disadvantage of their own people. Just give them a little honor and praise. This is generally the function of band councils, chiefs, and advisory councils: they have little legal power, but can handle the tough decisions such as welfare, allocation of housing etc.

Consult the Native, but do not act on the basis of what you hear. Tell the Native he has a voice and go through the motions of listening. Then interpret what you have heard to suit your own needs.

Insist that the Native "GO THROUGH PROPER CHANNELS." Make the channels and the procedures so difficult that he won't bother to do anything. When he discovers what the proper channels are and becomes proficient at the procedures, change them.

Make the Native believe that you are working hard for him, putting in much overtime and at a great sacrifice, and imply that he should be appreciative. This is the ultimate in the skill of stealing human rights; when you obtain the thanks of your victim.

Allow a few individuals to "MAKE THE GRADE" and then point to them as examples. Say that the 'HARDWORKERS" and the "GOOD" Natives have made it, and that therefore it is a person's own fault if he doesn't succeed.

Appeal to the Natives's sense of fairness, and tell him that even though things are pretty bad it is not right for him to make strong protests. Keep the argument going on his form of protest and avoid talking about the real issue. Refuse to deal with him while he is protesting. Take all the fire out of his efforts.

Encourage the Native to take his case to court. This is very expensive, takes lots of time and energy and is very safe because laws are stacked against him. The court's ruling will defeat the Native's cause, but makes him think he has obtained justice.

Make the Native believe that things could be worse, and that instead of complaining about the loss of human rights, to be grateful for the rights we do have. In fact, him that to attempt to regain a right he has lost is likely to jepordize the rights that he still has.

Set yourself up as the protector of the Native's human rights, and then you can choose to act only on those violations you wish to act upon. By getting successful on a few minor violations of human rights, you can point to these as examples of your devotion to his cause. The burglar who is also the doorman is the perfect combination.

Pretend that the reason for the loss of human rights is for some other reason that the person is a Native. Tell him some of your best friends are Natives, and that his loss of rights is because of his housekeeping, his drinking, his clothing.

Make the situation more complicated than is necessary. Tell the Native you will have to take a survey to find out how many other Natives are being discriminating against. Hire a group of professors to make a year-long research project.

Insist on unanimity. Let the Native know that when all the Natives make up their minds about just what they want as a group, then you will act. Play one group's special situation against another group's wishes. Present dilemmas none of which have any merit, and then tell the Native that indeed he has a choice. Ask, for instance, if he could or would rather have council elections in June or December, instead of asking if he wants them at all.

Convince the Native that the leaders who are the most beneficial and powerful are dangerous and not to be trusted. Or simply lock them up on some charge like driving with no lights. Or refuse to listen to the real leaders and spend much time with the weak ones. Keep the people split from their leaders by sowing rumour. Attempt to get the best leaders into high paying jobs where they have to keep quiet to keep their paycheck coming in.

Speak of the common good. Tell the Native that you can't consider yourselves when there is a whole nation to think of. Tell him that he can't think only of himself. For instance, in regard to hunting rights, tell him we have to think of all the hunters, or the sporting goods industry.

Remove rights so gradually that people don't realize what has happened until it is too late. Again, in regard to hunting rights, first restrict the geographical area where hunting is permitted, then cut the season to certain times of the year, then cut the limits down gradually, then insist on licensing, and then Nativess will be on the same grounds as elite sportsmen.

Rely on some paralogisms instead of rightness and morality. Give thousands of reasons for things, but do not get trapped into arguments about what is right.

Hold a conference on HUMAN RIGHTS, have everyone blow off steam and tension, and go home feeling things are well in hand.

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America,

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with a political system, and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of men requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

--That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

--That whenever any government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall appear most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right and duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these States . To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his approval of laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his approval is obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of humans, unless those humans would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the People.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harrass our People, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to us, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offense

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and they have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as they hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the USA, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Freedom of religion should be absolute.

Government should not support relgious institutions.

Government is established to protect the rights of citizens.

"The Americans of 1776 were among the first men in modern society to defend rather than to seek an open society and constitutional liberty. Perhaps the most remarkable characteristic of this political theory sits in its deep-seated conservatism. However radical the principles of the Revolution may have seemed to the rest of the world, in the minds of the colonists they were thoroughly preservative and respectful of the past." - Clinton Rossiter

"No referendum was necessary for the Declaration of Independence and it might well have failed in some of the colonies. The "will of the people," so precious to demagogues, did not determine what was right and true. The people can fall for Hitler, adore Obama, and be enchanted by silly or wicked men. The purpose of government, as the Declaration clearly states, is to secure liberty and not to implement that dubious, inconstant sentiment "the will of the people." - Bruce Walker

"I was struck by the number of offenses attributed to the "British crown" that have been, and are being, committed by the George Walker Bush administration. Perhaps it is time for some remedial education, not only of George Walker Bush and certain members of his administration and party but also of the bare majority of voters who returned this particular George to a second term in order that he might continue to pursue policies so at odds with our founders' ideals." - Jeffery A. Wolf

"I was struck by the fact that many of our founding fathers' grievances are the same as those felt by today's Democrats. For example, John Hancock et al complained that King George III had "forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance ... "; "affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power. . . " and perhaps most chillingly, "made judges dependent on his will alone. . . . " There are numerous other parallels between the administration of King George III and George Walker Bush. Perhaps it's time we abolished ties to our King George?" -Chris Jares

King George III

King George III of England

King George III suffered from a genetic disorder called porphyria, an over production of the reddish pigments in hemoglobin, which carry oxygen in red blood cells.

King George III displayed many symptoms of porphyria, including abdominal pain, reddish urine and acute mental disturbances.

Similar symptoms had been reported across several generations of the royal (blue blood megalomaniac) lineage.

Ironically arsenic contaminated medicines used to treat some of his symptoms probably exacerbated them as arsenic disrupts hemoglobin production which, paradoxically, triggers many or porphyria's symptoms.

Biochemist Martin J. Warren of the University of Kent and his colleagues studied five strands of George III's gray hair preserved at London's Science Museum. They concluded that the hair had an arsenic content of 17 times the level generally considered to indicate arsenic poisoning.

"It is extremely likely that his bouts of madness were due to severe porphyric attacks," Martin J. Warren said. "Arsenic may have precipitated his attacks, or made them much more severe."

King George III experienced at least five bouts of extreme derangement, each lasting weeks. King George III occasionally became violent, and he often talked to imaginary people, including a tree he thought was the Prussian king, Frederick II.

There is a very real possibility that had King George III not suffered from severe arsenic poisoning the American colonies would have been dealt with in an entirely different manner and the American Revolution would never have occurred.

"The Declaration, after all, catalogued the assaults on our freedoms committed by Britain's King George III. What has been built up over the last two and a quarter centuries is a structure that dwarfs King George III's regime." – K.E. Grubbs

Thomas Jefferson warned Americans to not let Federal Reserve power dominate the American political landscape.

"If Americans are to abide by their founding Declaration of Independence from the British Empire, they must become aware of what is going on. In today's plugged-in world, awareness would mean being willing to un-plug from the mainstream media and find sources of information not invested in controlling your thinking to support the popular party-line of politics, culture, finance, etc." - Susan Boskey 7/28/13

The Declaration of Independence of the Fifty Colonies and their Poor and Middle Class Inhabitants from the Imperialist Federal Government of the United States of America

The unanimous Declaration of the Fifty Colonies of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one group of people to dissolve the political chains which have enslaved them to another group of people, and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind demands that they need declare the causes impelling them to separate.

We hold these truths to be self-evident and irrefutable, that all People are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Human Rights as delineated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

-That to secure these rights, government are instituted among the people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

-That whenever any form of government usurps powers without the governed people's consent and becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that people are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But when a long train of obscene abuses and heinous crimes, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right and responsibility to depose such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

-Such has been the patient sufferance of these Fifty Colonies, their Poor and Middle Classes, and most of the rest of the citizens of Earth; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.

The history of the present king of the United States [George II], and that of his predecessors [houses of Elephant and Donkey alike] dating back to the reign of king Richard of the royal family of Nixon, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations [by the rulers and their trusted advisors], all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these Colonies and their Poor and Middle Class inhabitants.

To prove this, let candid facts be submitted to the citizens Earth .

They [King George II and his royal advisors: lords Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, Wolfowitz, Gonzales, and lady Rice] have refused their Assent to Laws and Policies, most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

They have engaged in acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide in the city of New Orleans through acts of criminal neglect and gross mismanagement of the aftermath of a natural disaster, the willful creation of a diaspora of the poor black inhabitants of New Orleans, the suspension of labor laws which would have ensured fair wages to those rebuilding the city, and the dispensation of generous federal contracts to crony corporations to rebuild a city favorable to the interests of the wealthy.

They manipulated facts and presented lies to the American people and to Congress to gain necessary approval of a "preventive", illegal war against the sovereign nation of Iraq on the shifting premises that this nation posed an immediate threat to our national security, that the Iraqi people needed a champion to topple a ruthless dictator, and that their purpose was to spread "freedom and liberty".

It has now come to light that Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction, had no connections with Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden, and was little or no threat to America. They knew this prior to the invasion as he was on the pay role.

They subverted a government led by a former American ally whom America supported when it kenw he was committing genocide.

They installed a puppet Iraqi regime fortified by 140,000 United States military personnel and call it "Democracy".

They are responsible for the deaths of a minimum of 52,297 to 57,871 Iraqi civilians. 12/31/06

Their hands drip with the blood of innocents slaughtered using monies from our Treasury and the blood, sweat and tears of our children.

They recruited and trained American military personnel under the pretext that they would be engaged in defending America.

After enticing young men and women to serve based on blatant lies, they thrust them into imperial conquests like the one in Iraq.

American Deaths:

as of (3/19/03): 4497
as of "Mission Accomplished" (5/1/03): 4351
as of Handover (6/29/04): 3631
as of Obama Inauguration (1/20/09): 260
as of Operation New Dawn: 66

They have sacrificed these American lives, the American Dream and American Democracy on the alter of the almighty dollar.

They have continued to perpetuate, protect, and expand the powers of corrupt, avaricious corporations.

These cornucopias of avidity for wealth and power pay sub-standard wages, offer minimal benefits to their employees, increasingly utilize inexpensive "offshore" labor, manufacture products in "sweat shops" which egregiously violate the human rights of their employees, profiteer during wars and natural disasters, rape the environment and plunder our precious natural resources, utilize "creative accounting methods" to increase their stock value, capitalize on laws enabling them to create hostile environments for unions, demand virtually endless increases in corporate welfare, and strangle competition through mergers and acquisitions accomplished with their over-inflated stocks.

They have perpetuated and expanded an executive branch of government which is in many ways indistinguishable from the leviathan corporations and wealthy elite which it serves and represents.

They have forsaken their primary responsibility, which is to preserve the universal human rights of their citizenry, and to secure the general welfare of the citizenry.

They have rapidly eroded federal domestic programs promoting health care, education, basic infrastructure, and housing, while directing unconscionable sums of public monies to the military industrial complex comprised of current and former government officials and the wealthy elite.

They seize the lion's share of taxes from their citizens and spend obscene amounts to finance a grotesquely powerful military [and their imperial adventures], while a significant number of their citizens want for proper education, housing, transportation, and even nourishment.

They have created a rogue military state which engages in terrorism of such magnitude that terrorist acts committed by the Iraqi Resistance, while equally as morally objectionable, are modest in comparison.

They have, through their willful neglect of the general welfare, allowed 46 million Americans to languish with no health insurance, 13% of their citizenry to experience poverty, 3% to experience homelessness, 24% of their Black populace live in poverty, and 6% of their citizens to experience unemployment.

These glaring blights on humanity are inexcusable in the wealthiest nation in history.

They have continued to loosen federal regulations on the "free market" economy, thus further enriching their plutocratic allies while impoverishing more and more Americans.

They have worked tenaciously to perpetuate the exportation of neoliberal economic policies to Latin America, crushing economies throughout that region, and creating chasms between their rich and poor.

They have employed chemical weapons, white phosphorus, in Iraq, violating numerous treaties, conventions, and International Laws.

They have exposed their own soldiers and the civilian inhabitants of occupied Iraq to the dangers of depleted uranium projectiles.

They have employed a variety of illegal and unethical means to manipulate and taint the results of two presidential elections to ensure their ascendancy to the seat of power.

They have enacted laws and policies hostile to science and intellectual viewpoints, thus leading our nation down a path of ignorance and superstition.

They have grossly usurped their powers by intimidating Congress into enacting the Patriot Act, decimating Habeas Corpus and due process by illegally detaining Jose Padilla [an American citizen], and violating virtually everything for which the Bill of Rights stands by illegally detaining, torturing and murdering accused terrorists at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, and other undisclosed locations across the face of the Earth.

They violated Posse Comitatus in New Orleans and have since stated their intention to crush it by deploying American military personnel on a wide scale in future domestic disasters.

They have consistently rewarded or promoted those members of their royal court who have committed criminal or grossly incompetent acts.

They have pillaged the public Treasury, dispersing tax monies to their cronies and collaborators in their corrupt schemes.

They have created an astronomical national debt which will hang from the necks of future generations as a millstone of astounding proportions.

They have virtually relieved themselves and their wealthy compatriots of their tax obligations.

In so doing, They have placed the burden of filling the public coffers on the backs of those who benefit least from their governance [the Poor and Middle Classes].

They have financed and enabled the ruthless Israeli colonial occupation of Palestinian territory, and have allowed elements closely aligned with the radical Likud to shape their foreign policy decisions, particularly in the Middle East.

We [those amongst us who do not remain entranced by the powerful propaganda of the mainstream media] have Petitioned for Redress in humble, reasonable terms in a variety of ways.

Our repeated Petitions have been answered by repeated injury.

A prince of the American royal family of Bush, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our brethren in the federal government, their Federal Reserve allies or the transnational elite.

We have warned them from time to time of their attempts to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.

We have reminded them of our inalienable rights derived from Natural Law, the United States Constitution, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We have appealed to their senses of justice and magnanimity, and we have beseeched them to disavow these usurpations based on our common kindred.

They have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.

We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as they hold the rest of humanity, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the Fifty Colonies of America and their Poor and Middle Classes, appealing to the Supreme Judge of Earth for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these Fifty Colonies and United Peoples are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent of the United Stated Federal Government; that we are Absolved from Allegiance to the Federal Crown, and that all political connections between them and us, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent People forming a true Constitutional Republic, we have full Power to provide for the General Welfare of the populace, to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence (by the Higher Power of each person's understanding), we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

-Jason Miller,,

The Official Declaration of the Occupation of Wall Street

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.

We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.

They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one's skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.

They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.

They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers' healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.

They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.

They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.

They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.

They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people's lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.

They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.

They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.

To the people of the world, We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
