Omen of the Times, Need to Rethink America, New Citizen’s Oath
Frankly, I’m reluctant to lead with such a horrifying story that heralds the degeneration into Third World chaos in what was once a damned fine city… and believe it or not, still can be again. But we’re all going to have to face facts that affect the whole rest of Michigan, the country, and the world. [If you want to read the report on a man who was mauled to (probable) death, then click on the scanned column segment here on the right from Saturday’s (10/4/2014) Detroit Free Press.]
Savage behavior unleashed on unsuspecting persons is not confined to the Motor City or Rust Belt cities that have been destroyed by the ‘Podocracy'—via runaway statism. And this incident in unfortunate Detroit should serve as a wake-up call across the world that Western civilization stands in dire peril of complete collapse… if enough of us who can still think for ourselves do not make a clear stand.
Stand up for First Principles
We need to pose in a positive vein: For what? And the ‘for’ part is quite simply spelled out by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. We call them First Principles. From my writeup in The Motor City Witchcraft Trial(s):
… what has transpired this week in this little corner of what was supposed to be a republic amounts to a travesty of justice. To punish a person for refusing an order of a public official to commit perjury is the grossest violation of our core values expressed in the Declaration.
More on First Principles
As I stated in a previous footnote, I had never heard the notion of First Principles expressed so specifically until my conversation with Mr. McIlvery. He numbered them as five distinct ones. I wonder, indeed, whether some group of knowing citizens has formed a First Principles (or Five Principles) organization or movement. The core passage from the Declaration I have bulletized:
- We hold these truths to be self-evident, that: (Universality: nature-consistent law)
- All men are created equal.(Equality)
- They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights—among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (Rights: natural and inviolate freedom of the individual, the Sacred Nonaggression Principle.)
- To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed (Constraint: Sole purpose of government to secure rights.)
- Whenever any Form of 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 seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. (Choice: Government exists at the people’s ultimate and rightful discretion.)
We descend to the lowest rungs of civilization when we do not as individuals a) understand our First Principles and b) do not stand for them.
In the case above, how has the public’s safety deteriorated to such a woeful level that—because of cultivation of manifest vicious threats to life and limb—no person is “safe in the peaceful enjoyment of his life and property.”? It has deteriorated because not enough of us have resisted the collectivizing power of the Oligarchy to assert our liberty and common humanity. That is, we have not taken full responsibility for our own liberty against the state.
Why haven’t we? Good question, requiring a longer answer.
Signs are very good we are beginning to correct course and throw off the diseased collective invaders. I note for example that the Libertarian Party of Michigan’s annual festival, called Liberty Fest, is inviting as its speaker a celebrated real estate entrepreneur named Rodney Lockwood. Mr. Lockwood intends to restore Belle Isle, a 1000-acre island in the Detroit River, as a libertarian commonwealth free from the Podders entirely—no taxes, no consensual crime laws, no restrictions on person and property except the nonaggression principle.
The image below shows the day vs. night possibilities of a Free State way of living. And the city of Detroit, now bankrupt in spirit as well as body, can begin the slow process of rebuilding by following Belle Isle’s example.
But no idea will work until we can nearly all state with conviction and knowledge the First Principles (of life, liberty, property, equality, and natural law) that we insist upon in any society worth beans. To that end, here is my newly proposed Free Citizen’s Pledge of Allegiance.
New Pledge of Allegiance—Draft
See Something, Do Something
(Demand accountability from public officials)
I pledge allegiance to the truth
derived from objective evidence by my own rational judgment,
and to full accountability of public officials, along with their associates,
for all lies and aggression seriously harming the people…
Who shall use established, yet fully empowered, grand juries
to bring indictments for felony violations of America’s First Principles
to assure peace, liberty, and justice for all.
Let the rebuilding begin!
Note: One area of public accountability is removing bona fide lethal nuisances by priority, such as these dogs that were enabled to run free and terrorize the community. Immediately resolving problems like this clearly requires a level of grassroots person-to-person cooperation from the ground up. The people in the neighborhoods cannot wait for city hall or the police, because Detroit official government is in reality no longer operating.
 Podocracy: My best shot to date for a name that expresses the antihuman or diseased human or alien-being society formed from apparent humans intent on collectivizing the souls and minds of real humans into one parasitic, self-destroying, consensus reality blob. Similar to pathocracy, whose meaning should be apparent.
