"Liberty is to faction, what air is to fire, an ailment

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." -

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 accounts.
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
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.
He 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

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
forged 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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 the Lumière Infinie 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.
