What is a Sovereign Being?

End Sovereign Immunity Once and for All

The term autonomy comes from the Greek words "autos" (self) and "nomos" (rule or law) and, when applied to persons, refers to their decisions and actions being their own.

As Dworkin (1988) observed, it is a moral, political and social ideal.

Dworkin theorized liberty is only liberty to do whatever we wish so long as we do not infringe upon the rights of others; human beings were responsible for the life choices they make and that natural endowments of intelligence and talent are morally arbitrary.

"Dworkin uses the classic story of Odysseus - tied to his ship's mast so that he can resist the calls of the sirens - to explain the second-order reflection inherent in his conception of autonomy.

Autonomy means that we can have a preference about our preferences (in light of how we wish to live our lives).

For this reason, it is possible for autonomy to be maintained in the face of interference that infringes on the voluntary character of one's actions (or even coercion).

As Dworkin (1988: 14) writes, "not every interference with the voluntary character of one's actions interferes with a person's ability to choose his mode of life."

Some loss of liberty still may be consistent with Dworkin's conception of autonomy.

Consider, for example, life-saving medical treatment rendered without patient consent in emergency situations (Dworkin 1988: 116)." - ‘Hidden Persuaders’: Defaults and Consumer Welfare, N. Craig Smith and Daniel G. Goldstein, London Business School Centre for Marketing, Working Paper No. 07-105, March 2007

N. Craig Smith and Daniel G. Goldstein have very cleverly turned Dworkin upside down.

They have used Dworkin to justify unwanted medical intervention.

The Power of I AM

It is not enough to have a good mind.

The main thing is to use it well.

If you would be a real seeker after truth,

it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt,

as far as possible, all things.


"The rational, analytical, objective worldview implicit in the discrete Cartesian self, separate and distinct from all other selves and their environment, is a necessary and proper phase of human development.

It is a phase, however, that sets the stage for a further phase, one that we typically no longer experience.

We remain therefore stuck in a perpetual adolescence, waiting our whole lives for some momentous happening that never happens.

That our development remains arrested in the analytic ego phase is necessary for the continuation of society as we know it, for the perpetuation of the World Under Control." - Charles Eisenstein

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 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 coöperation. Coöperation 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 mass 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.
