Articles of Confederation and
Perpetual Union was penned in 1777 soon after the Declaration of
Independence and existed as the only constitution until 1788.
Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union was an agreement among the 13
founding states that established the United States of America as a
confederation of sovereign states.
On February 21, 1787, the Congress of
the Confederation delivered a
resolution authorizing a Philadelphia constitutional convention but with an
important limitation: "for the sole and express purpose of revising the
Articles of Confederation and reporting to Congress and the several
Prior to the Philadelphia constitutional convention,
Framers wrote and distributed approximately 85 "Federalist Papers" to extol the
virtues of an entirely new, second constitution for the people of America.
By doing this, they hoped to reverse the prevailing negative public
opinion and increase the public's confidence in such a plan.
hid behind a pseudonym when writing their Federalist Papers; each was signed as
"Publius," meaning "friend of the people" (or public).
Many of the
dissenting voices among the free inhabitants of the several states regarded the
upcoming Philadelphia constitutional convention as potentially illegal.
They well-understood from the Federalist Papers the
Federalist goal of
creating a new constitution and not simply revising the existing one.
In the minds of the free inhabitants, the accomplishment of Federalist
goals could unravel the freedoms and liberties they had gained under the
Articles of Confederation and won by the American Revolution.
Philadelphia constitutional convention, held from May into September 1787,
exceeded the authority given it.
Instead of revising the Articles of
Confederation they forged an entirely new constitution.
Constitution of the United States, signed September 17, 1787, was deemed
ratified June 21, 1788 by only nine states instead of the unanimous
ratification of all 13 states required by the Articles of Confederation.
Thereafter, a new,
centralized US Government was formed,
disregarding the original, decentralized American
jurisdiction of state legislatures established soon after the American
In June of 1788 at the Virginia Conference, orator and
Anti-Federalist, Patrick Henry, exposed
the political tactics of
propaganda he believed the Federalists had used to win over the public.
The Framers had pandered to the people in order to get their way, he
said, by convincing the people, that under a new constitution, democracy would
mean the government belonged to them.
"Who authorized them to speak the
language, 'We, the people', instead of 'We, the states?' . . . That they exceed
their powers is perfectly clear . . . The Federal Convention ought to have
amended the old system; for this purpose they were solely delegated; the object
of their mission extended to no other consideration." - Patrick Henry, June 4,
The Constitution of 1787 and the US government it formed was an
illegitimate (unauthorized) takeover of the original American jurisdiction.
The new Constitution provided for a much stronger national government
with a chief executive (the president), courts, and taxing powers.
Articles of Confederation have never been been lawfully repealed.
Americans, no longer suffering as indentured-servant subjects of the
British monarchy, now suffer as indentured-servant subjects of the United

obscured corporate-banking cartel.

and Perpetual Union still stand.
The Constitution was a Federalist
counterrevolution turning States into Municipalities.
Republicans are losing their enthusiasm for protecting black rights.
Despite the presence of federal troops, sent by President Grant to
protect black voting rights, white Democrats effectively resume campaigns of
violence and intimidation to suppress the Republican vote, with clearly
observable effects depicted in this map.
The formal end to
Reconstruction was brought about in the disputed 1876 Presidential election.
The Democratic candidate, Tilden, won the popular vote, but neither
candidate initially had a majority of electoral votes due to disputes over
returns in Florida, Louisiana and S. Carolina - the only states in which
federal troops were still stationed.
Although they were not numerous
enough to stop white intimidation of black voters, the troops were considered
an affront by white Democrats.
In backroom negotiations, Democrats
conceded the disputed election returns to Hayes in return for his agreement to
withdraw the remaining 3000 federal troops, thereby putting a formal end to
Reconstruction and assuring Democratic control, based on a platform of white
supremacy and black disenfranchisement, throughout the South.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The

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.

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.
