The great object of the new Constitution, James
Madison wrote, was "to secure the public good and private rights against the
danger of ... faction." By "faction," James Madison meant "a number of citizens
actuated by some common interest adverse to the rights of other citizens or to
the interests of the community."
A corporation is a faction, a group of
citizens actuated by the common interest of profit.
"Liberty is to
faction, what air is to fire, an ailment without which it instantly expires.
But it could not be a less folly to abolish liberty, which is essential to
political life, because it nourishes faction, than it would be to wish the
annihilation of air, which is essential to animal life, because it imparts to
fire its destructive agency." - James Madison

-First draft of what became the First Amendment, 8 June 1789.
Madison "The dastardly deed took place on
February 24, 1803. The killer was John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court, who wrote the decision known as
Marbury v. Madison, which is not only absurdly argued but treacherous on two
First, Marshall takes the position that "It is emphatically
the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is" which
results in the Court's becoming the sole Constitutional authority subject to no
review. Since that day, the Court has ruled the USA as a judicial oligarchy.
Second, the decision provides the
Court with a
paradigm on which it could base clearly and obviously unjust
decisions. Marshall agreed that Marbury
was entitled to relief but
refused to provide it. That is clearly unjust; yet the Constitution clearly
says that one of the nation's purposes is to "establish justice." Even though
Marshall's argument is absurd, no one but Jefferson challenged it.
writes, "the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws
are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of
action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make
the Judiciary a despotic branch." It is clearly contradictory to say on the one
hand that the Court has the duty to "say what the law is" and then say that the
Court is constrained from providing Marbury with the relief he is
entitled to because the
written Constitution doesn't give the Court the authority to grant it. The
written Constitution doesn't give the Court the authority to "say what the law
is" either. Yet no one pointed out that if it were the Court's duty to say
"what the law is," legislatures are superfluous. So Marshall on this day,
murdered the Republic." - John Kozy

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

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
