"Oligarchy... a government in which a small group exercises control, esp. for corrupt and selfish purposes."

-MISSION STATEMENT-

"Justice originates between parties of equal power."

Friedrich Nietzsche

To the extent that we, the people, are removed from control over our lands, marketplaces, central banks, and media we are no longer empowered. In practice, those few who do control the land, central bank, media and "free market" are the real rulers of our corrupt and declining "democracy."

Due to propaganda from a corporate-owned and edited media we are kept from knowing, much less debating, the nature of our system. Due to a central bank owned by bankers, media owned by a few global concerns, and trade regime controlled by global corporations (i.e., one designed to remove the people from control over their markets and environments) the vast majority have become little more than latter-day serfs and neo-slaves upon a corporate latifundia.

To restore a semblance of effective democracy and true freedom Americans, and people around the world, need to re-educate themselves as to the true nature of their political and economic systems. Toward this end, OligarchyUSA.com is dedicated to providing old and new information, books, links, reform ideas and debates not easily found or accessed today in establishment media.

OligarchyUSA.com is but one more site and sign of the times as ground-up counter-revolutions arise around the world... all in response to a forced and freedomless globalization courtesy of a ruling global elite perfecting their top-down plutocracy and revolutions of the rich against the poor. In short, democracy is no longer effective today. For this reason, it is toward a restoration of truly effective and representative democracies, and natural freedom, that this site is dedicated.

-ISSUE BRIEFS-


1. ENCLOSURE & NATURAL FREEDOM -

"The lands of Italy, which had been originally divided among the families of free and indigent proprietors, were purchased or usurped by the avarice of the nobles; and in the age which proceeded the fall of the republic, it was computed only two thousand citizens were possessed of any independent substance."

Edward Gibbon,
Decline And Fall Of the Roman Empire

Historic freedom arose from possession of an estate of arable land, whether owned individually or in common, and from which Freemen could come and go from their marketplaces. Within an estate of natural freedom - wherein no person, party, or "factor" (capital or labor) was under duress, and where each was capable of withholding their contribution - real justice, equity, and democracy could arise and prevail. In these free meetings of landed independents truly free markets could arise to benefit all, and exploit none.

In contrast, when either primary factor to the economic equation is less free, landless, burdened by debt, overtaxation, or simply desperate for money-wages to survive then markets are no longer truly free... for all. As a result of the relative lack of freedom of one factor or another we create problematic, factor-imbalanced, markets if not altogether unfree, dysfunctional, and costly markets.

In effect, factor-imbalanced markets give rise to all manner of societal and market distortions, exploitations, deprivations, and revenge-driven cataclysms. With a lack of landed freedom giving rise to dependency, disenfranchisement and factor-imbalanced markets, history thus became one long tale of the traumas and turmoil arising from the resultant fascisms of Left and Right.

Other imperialisms aside, enclosures of land by the ruling classes in England once steadily reduced the number of landed Freemen and greatly increased the number of indebted, urban, wage-bound dwellers who no longer retained their freedom estate or Commons upon the land. Endless rent, mortgage, debt, and wage came to replace natural freedom and a commonwealth in the "free market." Over time, these moves to the city and wage-work translated into lost natural refuge upon the land.

Regardless of reasons, other benefits, or our urban proclivities, enclosures meant then, and mean today, dependency, disenfranchisement, lack of refuge from the market, and a rent and debt-driven desperation for the many. Rather than landed, enfranchised, villagers coming to a free market (or refraining if desired) modern "free markets" are filled with landless, dependent, and wage-bound souls. In relation to the capital they must serve to earn a living, they are increasingly impotent in the marketplace, and so the implications for both society and markets are profound.

This veritable sea-change in the estate of wage-earning majorities is now the ground, the socio-economic set and setting, upon which modern markets engender inequities, misallocations, and endless social and political turmoil. It is for these historic and structural reasons that factor balance and effective democracy must be re-created and preserved throughout our institutions.



2. FREE OR FORCED TRADE? -


"We should not be naive globalists. Not everything that is global is good. Interdependency has really paradoxical consequences."

Alvin Toffler

Added to enclosure, private central banks, and a corporate media is a capital-defined and driven coup called "free trade." As a result of a removal of tariff freedoms (via a corporate-written GATT-NAFTA) what we have today is effectively forced trade with the Greater Slave, and a protectionism for capital alone.

Clearly, freedom implies responsibility as well as our ability to come and go from markets, and a liberty to balance today's disparate and undemocratic markets with compensating and incentivizing tariffs.

In a still disparate and undemocratic world, exactly such levers can work to elevate standards, wages and shares by incrementally opening developed markets according to progress in less developed countries. These incentives will drive business in less developed and democratic nations to embrace elevating, rather than depressing, wages, standards, and social reforms in order to gain further lower-tariffed or free entry to developed markets.

Without incentivizing tariff freedoms for G7 countries the "race to the bottom" is on and all the First World's progress, standards, and middle classes will be diminished, indebted, and destroyed as the Greater Slave is perversely rewarded.

As it is, globalization is problematic, costly, and counterproductive because wage-earning majorities had no say in GATT-NAFTA treaties. They were written in secret and quickly passed by Congress (with 100 lame ducks) amidst a media black-out, and immediately after the November 1993 elections. In any event, this veritable sea-change in our affairs was not addressed during the campaign.

In short, this deceitful process of the "The Selling Of Nafta" was nothing short of a crime, considering polls showed 87% of the people opposed NAFTA. Nevertheless, our freedom and economy were handed to unelected panels who meet in secret, where the public cannot attend, and whose decisions cannot be appealed!

A global oligopoly, eco-ruin, trade deficits, currency collapse, and all the social chaos engendered by this coup is underway... and creating free-trade driven depressions for the G7. It is imperative the G7 countries convene again to refashion a democratic trade regime - i.e., one defined by wage-earning majorities and fit for a still very disparate and undemocratic world.

Lastly, in a collapsing, fossil-fuel-driven, world we have no distance tariffs. Thus, a product which travels 10,000 miles to market in fossil-fuel vehicles competes on a par with those which travel only 100 miles. Again, the incentives are perverse and we all, and future generations, must pay the price for this irresponsible folly.


3. CENTRAL BANKS & The "FED" -


"If government becomes Independent of politics it can only mean that that sphere of government becomes an absolute self-perpetuating oligarchy ... such an elite becomes more suitable for a dictatorship than an alleged democratic country."

Murray Rothbard,
The Case Against the Fed

In 1913, in a coup by capital similar to that which led to the current GATT-NAFTA scheme, our central bank was handed to a private cartel of big Bankers. Thus, an oligarchic setup emerged allowing for the ultimate conflict of interest - an Enron-type debt-money creation process.

As a result, we no longer own or control our money-creation process or monetary policy. In effect, our representatives are slaves to big banks. Every dollar we need to create we must borrow, with interest, due private, for-profit, bankers and the bond-dealing owners of the Fed.

The "independent" bank scam (setup to be independent of the people's purse powers) means monetary powers given us by the Founding Fathers are no longer ours. As with the GATT-NAFTA deceit yet another congress of re-election hungry, oligarchy-serving, politicians gave away our essential banking powers... and we have trillions in interest-bearing debt as a result.

Imagine, for example, no-interest home loans? Imagine paying only once for your home instead of 3 or 4 times over due to compound interest? This possibility of no-interest funding for the building blocks of society would be real if, in fact, the people owned their own central bank and purse powers as the Founders intended.

Unfortunately, we are never likely to never hear of any such proposal, nor do we even hear of the Sovereignty legislation - a bill pending in congress for years allowing for interest-free infrastructure financing. Why? Where is the "free press?" And why does the Fed enjoy a unique exemption from the Freedom Of Information Act? For more facts on the "Fed" we suggest Murray Rothbard's The Case Against The Fed.


4. CORPORATE MEDIA & CONTROL


"He who monopolizes all media of communication has full power to keep a tight hand on the individuals minds and souls."

Ludwig Von Mises

Corporate media mold minds and souls today, and the "liberal media" shibboleth is a complete scam. What we need to do to escape corporate, for profit, control of our public information system is to separate editorship from ownership (within major media organizations), or even elect our editors - as Edward Bellamy suggested over a century ago in Looking Backward.

For more on this vital topic see the chapter on media in Cap-Com, The Economic Of Balance, and the Editorial Freedom Act proposal.

As Ralph Nader observed about our media situation "most people do not know they own the public airwaves... and unless more people realize they have legal ownership of huge resources... they are not going to develop the democratic power to improve the country." Indeed.

Meanwhile, oversight agencies, like the FCC, are controlled by revolving-door, corporate-world, lackies busy giving away the last of our power and spectrum to large media conglomerates - who have very little interest in the public interest. In sum, the majority of wage-earning citizens, and their concerns, are not represented in corporate media today... and certain topics remain taboo, in order to prop up our plutocracy.


5. ECONOMICS & DE-REGULATION -


"We have moved beyond the deregulation ideology of the of the 1980s... we have learned that inadequate regulation presents equal, and in some cases, even greater dangers. "

Joseph Stiglitz

Recent electricity, cable, banking and telecom industry de-regulation legislation was essentially written by industry lobbyists and handed to "our" corporate-financed politicians. For this reason, as in the past, "reforms" have emerged in order to screw consumers and create oligopoly.

Given that our representatives do not seem to learn, and we-they continue on a corporate campaign-finance take, the majority are not represented under a "money rules" system. As a result, despite a history of failures, each new generation is forced to revisit costly de-regulation idiocy. The repeal of depression-era banking regulation is a prime example. In many instances such deregulation has delivered fraud, costly privatizations, criminality, and taxed citizens not only their jobs but their life savings.


6. OLIGARCHY & OLIGOPOLY -


"We are back to an oligarchy pretending to be a republic pretending to be a democracy."

Ed Henry
 
"The transition from aristocracy is to oligarchy, resulting from the badness of the rulers. They distribute the city's goods in conflict with people's worth, so that they distribute all or most of the goods to themselves, and always assign ruling offices to the same people, counting wealth for most. Hence the rulers are few, and they are vicious people instead of the most decent."

Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics

Where the few control the many due to their greater money, media, land, and political power what emerges is plutocracy and predation via forced-trade schemes. Immense disparities of wealth, terrorism by ruling elites, and evermore enclosures of the people's interests occur in what become fascisms and totalitarian capitalisms... in "free markets" without exit.

History is one long tale of the chicanery of the few manipulating and extorting the many in order to maintain power and privilege.... until, of course, real reforms or a revolution reverses the course of events.


7. GROWTHISM & GROWTH-TO-RUIN


"A growing nation is the greatest ponzi game ever contrived."

Paul Samuelson

The main corporate, for-profit, motivation and ethic today is "growth." Indeed, we are told growth is good despite the on-going degeneration in our lives, environments, wages, and currency values. Regardless, nearly seventy-percent of what economists mistakenly call "growth" is simply population-driven, per-capita, diminuition in the most important qualities of life, and neither technological advance or greater GNP and productivity.

Yet it is Balance that people want today - i.e., a salutary balance in our budgets, population, and environments. However, we cannot achieve the Better Estate due to the majority's political and economic impotence, and to capital's reign serving up economic and religious idiocy and irresponsibility.

At this stage in our sojourn, Growthism is the most dangerous and irresponsible "economic" policy possible. More than ever, incentives must now be changed to both create and reward balance rather than self-defeating and degenerative growth.


8. OVERPOPULATION & ECO-RUIN -


"Those fighting birth control want to eliminate a device indispensable for the preservation of peaceful human cooperation."

Ludwig Von Mises

Ever-growing populations are at the root of nearly every problem we face. Yet, in a world already collapsing on so many fronts, and when battles over land, food, fish, and water are occurring around the globe, many still wish to inflict ruinous and irresponsible "economic" and "moral" dogmas upon us.

As a result, developed nations are overrun by an overflow of people from countries where population continues to spiral upward and ruin their homelands. Balance and a better world are daily destroyed by the lack of social and political parity for women, ability to control their reproduction, and a lack of incentives to curtail overpopulation. As things stand, the Popes and Ayatollahs of the world expect us all to pay for their patriarchal crimes serving to produce the worst of worlds.


9. ENVIRONMENT & GLOBAL WARMING


"The risk is very great that we shall overshoot in our environmental demands, leading to the collapse of our civilization."
Kirkpatrick Sale

With so many signs of eco-ruin and climate change calling for action today, where are the "conservatives"? What are conservatives conserving today other than a right of self-interest to trump our vital common interests? All such intransigence and irresponsibility simply means the fastest possible decline and destruction of our commonwealth, our living environments, our children's legacy, and democracy.

As opposed to corporate obstructionists, concerned, compassionate, conservatives, will take a better-safe-than-sorry approach to dealing with the future of our children's world. Further denial and reliance on corporate junk science (in order to excuse and prevent necessary progress on pollution and humanity's load on the environment) is, at this late juncture, simply inexcusable.


10. RELIGION & BELIEF -


"All beliefs are barriers to the truth"

Osho

As Talibans and Ayatollahs both old and new remind us, religious belief is often no solution but, instead, the problem itself - i.e., one resulting in no end of conflict, cruelty, and chaos. Over two milleniums, and in terms of the violence, imperialism, cultural and gender genocide, and overpopulation induced it is clear our western, patriarchal, religions have largely been a disaster.

As journalist Christopher Hitchins noted recently, "the real axis of evil is Christianity, Judaism, and Islam." Indeed, as believers slaughter believers with their only-son-of-god and god's-chosen-people mentalities they create egoic exclusivity and demand infallibility - all of which creates endless conflict between faiths. Even Blasphemy laws still exist today - to keep believers in a cage and their beliefs from challenge. The world remains a madhouse of believers, and we all pay the price.

While the communal activity of church and doing good deeds remains a pillar of religious experience, western patriarchal dogmas remain an insult not only to women but to every enlightened being graced by nature. In effect, western dogmas keep us from understanding the nature and science of our being, and from going within and discovering the very spiritual evolution processes bequeathed to us by many masters thru the ages.

In practice, western, sky-god, religions have - by stressing belief rather than objective and subjective explorations of our interiority - prevented humanity from going inward. Counterproductive belief-isms endure today despite the fact Jesus, and others, observed the "the kingdom of god is within you"

How do we go within? Meditation, it seems. Yet only the East has made a science of religion and going within. We westerners have much to learn if, for a moment, we can drop our ego-gratifying and conflict-generating beliefs and abide in a "choiceless awareness."


11. IMMIGRATION & GROWTH-TO-RUIN -


"The issue isn't color but rate of sheer population growth... and California has already been built out beyond reason"

Steve Lopez, LATimes

Why should First World nations become dumping grounds for the Catholic and Islamic nations, and dictatorships exporting their troubles and surplus humanity? Even as a nation of immigrants, must we endlessly agree to absorb the human overgrowth of other nations, only to ruin our own?

Clearly, there are limits, and yet despite the will of the vast majority, corporate and Vatican powers force no-birth-control and unlimited immigration policies upon us. Our politicians now cater and pander more to these growth-to-ruin groups than to the vast majority who desire balance.

Today, the benefits of immigration are so often illusory, except for employers. As immigrant related medical and social costs soar, deficits arise, and hospitals close, more immigrants not only depress wages but send their spendable cash back to Mexico. In California alone, 15 billion/yr is not spent in the domestic economy at the same time social costs and deficits rise, and wages fall. Latin leaders, rather than reforming their own sick societies, continue to push people north to get this cash flow coming home.

Conveniently, this exodus removes young men and potential dissidents from the homeland so oligarchy and exploitation remain. In this way reforms are undercut and population problems exported. Today, Europe is also experiencing a backlash due to the flood of immigration from Muslim nations. In short, it is overpopulation stemming from a lack of birth control and abortion rights due to the suppression of women that combines to fuel growth-to-ruin, revolution, and terrorism everywhere.


12. LIMITS TO WEALTH -


"What would be better for America: to let one man have five million a year, and keep ten thousand men on the edge of want; or let the one man have one million a year and divide the four millions among ten thousand families?"

William Randolph Hearst

In yet another age of oligarchy, corporate predation, and gross disparities of wealth (much of which has accrued over time from enclosure-driven exploitations of labor) we still have no limits to corporate salaries, no excess profits tax, no limits to land ownership, wealth, or corporate franchise.

Concentration continues despite the fact both liberal and conservative economists (John Kenneth Galbraith and Peter Drucker) agreed the highest paid employee/CEO should not be paid more than 15-25 times the lowest. In today's rapacious plutocracy, we see ratios that are 100-500 times.

In addition, our ruling powers now seek to end virtually all estate taxes on the mega-rich, and so capture forever the spoils of a good deal of corporate crime, exploitation, enclosure, and oligopoly. Meanwhile, wage earners face job export, job loss, retirement funds decimated, and 24% credit card rates as predation and usury emerge big time.

While so many face financial ruin and loss of health insurance (triggering stress, heart attacks, divorce, family disintegration, and forced moves) the mega-rich use their increasing wealth and power to expand control over our lives, economy, and "democratic" system. The time has come to explore limits to wealth and oligopoly. As Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote in the 1930's "We can have a democratic society or we can have concentrated wealth in the hands of a few. We cannot have both."


13. VOTESCAM & OLIGARCHY -


"Computerized voting gives the power of selection, without fear of discovery, to whomever controls the computer."

James & Kenneth Collier

Votescam, The Stealing of America, a book by James and Kenneth Collier, is the first important read about our corrupt election processes. Yet neither the book, nor its allegations, were discussed in major media, despite Florida's election theft and debate over electronic voting machines - reading it helps you understand why.

Throughout history, vote fraud by those in power has been the fail-safe way for dictators and ruling elites to retain power. For this reason the ballot, and our right to vote on substantive issues shaping our system, are the most important and sacred rights we possess.

If we are driven into "touch-screen" ballots, we lose the ability to verify our votes and have any paper audit trail. The software to count, miscount, and steal votes is here. Elimination of paper ballots at the precinct level, where counts can still be verified by all parties and factions, means that we can kiss democracy goodbye.

Recapturing democracy from the ruling elite also requires the Supreme Court to redefine money as power and not as "freedom of speech" (Buckley v. Valeo). Otherwise, the rich will continue to own the system and public financing of campaigns will remain a dream.


14. DRUG WAR OR DRUG POGROM?


"In every other western nation...there are strong moves to de-penalize marijuana possession."

Peter Schrag

Today, those who prefer drinking grains are busy arresting those who smoke plants. Thus, one kind of use and intoxication is legal and another not. In practice, the Grain People self-righteously act to enclose and render off limits certain plants bequeathed to us all by Nature - all in order to persecute and control the Plant People.

To commit this craven act of despotism, you first have to set yourself up as a God. Then you may classify the plant-preferring people as lesser beings with lesser rights - i.e., those who can then be terrorized and imprisoned for having different ideas, tastes, habits and revelations.

The incredibly punitive actions taken, and lives ruined for such minor "crimes," are always in the name of the children and the zealot's "morality" - and this despite the fact we are dealing with the rights of adults who, ostensibly, are possessed of equal natural rights upon the earth.

In practice, the "war on drugs" is no less than a pogrom - i.e., an organized massacre of helpless people. Indeed, rather than a medical problem, the drug war has created a pogrom, state terrorism, gang culture, and black market - all amidst yet another idiotic prohibition. We never learn.

How did mankind manage to exist for millions of years without plant enclosures, anti-drug zealots, and millions in jail for addiction or mere possession of plants?

In the absence of communists and other bogey men, ruling elites need drug wars to imprison dissidents, retain their police-state powers, and keep the less powerful nations in line. If we cannot have armies in other nations for legitimate purposes we can have anti-drug warriors performing the same functions, and make sure that democratic forces make no gains against ruling oligarchies.

In this effort, ruling elites must conflate both drug pushers and hapless users with "terrorists." In practice, this means they can arrest and terrorize anyone, anywhere, for anything.... but particularly those whose freedom and activities are seen as a threat to a ruling powers.

Meanwhile, more binge drinking deaths and casualties from prescription drugs make illegal drugs and their effects look mild, and the last straw in this crusade of cruelty is denying marijuana to dying cancer patients. The same type of zealots who once watched witches burn at the stake seek to outlaw plants, criminalize a medical problem, and keep you corralled in Mother Nature's garden... a garden all beings inherit.


15. TERRORISM, FREEDOM & DISSENT -


"The most shameless and morally bankrupt rhetoric came from Trade Representative, Robert Zoellick, who asserted anti-globalization protestors have `intellectual connections' with terrorists."

Indymedia Notes

Just as a War on Drugs provides cover to both assassinate and terrorize labor and democracy activists, so the "Patriot" Act may be used to harass domestic activists who may protest administration policies and globalization plans... in their barb-wired "free speech zones." As with Hoover and Nixon, the enemies lists of "persons of interest" will likely be long. Democracy and anti-globalization activists may be singled out for tax audits and special treatment... "in order to send a message."

As President Bush stated "you're either with us, or you're with the terrorists." With this mindset there is clearly no grey area or room for dissent.

After their protests in Seattle, anti-globalization activists were denied entry into Canada to protest the Free Trade Area of the Americas confab in Quebec city, and now we have "free speech" zones. As corporate media bury anti-globalization ideas, activists, and fair trade protests, most Americans are unaware of what is going on - unless they secure alternative sources of information. Without the Internet we would be helpless, captive, and disconnected.


16. BILDERGERGERS & SECRET ELITES -


"Those who formally rule take their signals and commands, not from the electorate as a body, but from a small group.. this group will be called the establishment. It exists, even though that existence is starkly denied; it is one of the secrets of the American social order."

Arthur S. Miller

History is largely a story of the on-going conspiracies of a powerful few over the many, and the inevitable revolutions which follow. Wherever the few rule and control the many it is important they remain as invisible as possible. Otherwise, being so outnumbered, the ruling few could easily be dislodged or dispatched... particularly if people know of their existence and any predatory intent.

In short, this is why we do not hear about the "Bilderberger" ruling elite in the American corporate press, and may also be why a Forbes Magazine editor in Russia was killed - i.e., for publishing a list of the 100 richest Russians. In any case, when the most powerful people in the world, or their proxies, meet in secret it is a newsworthy event.

In any case, when the most powerful people in the world, or their proxies, meet in secret it is a newsworthy event. Why are such enclaves not covered? To date, only the right-wing American Free Press, and a few European journals cover this event. It remains an ongoing story blacked out by establishment media and providing the best proof of a ruling oligarchy in America. Where is the "liberal" media on this?

Aside from bankers and industrialists, media owners, journalists, and politicians also attend these furtive events - all under an oath of secrecy. A few, hand-picked, representatives and senators attend the enclaves - all while taking the group's oath not to tell constituents of their whereabouts or participation in such ruling-class events! Welcome to the Oligarchy.


17.  9-11  TERRORISM OR FASCISM?


"The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists."

J. Edgar Hoover

Like the preposterous single-bullet theory for the JKF assassination, Lyndon Johnson’s staged Gulf of Tonkin incident, Roosevelt and Churchill’s letting Pearl Harbor happen "for the greater good," it is clear governments lie. With 9-11 it appears that, if not altogether directed by rogue/ruling-elite CIA/Mossad agents then, despite warnings from four countries (even down to the very date) providing foreknowledge of the attack, Bush & the Neo-Con cabal simply let 9-11 happen - all to further their "New Pearl Harbor" agenda, as outlined in the imperialist "Project For A New Century" manifesto.

Never in one hundred years has any steel building collapsed from fire, yet we are told three of the most structurally overbuilt buildings in history suddenly went down... via the government’s "pancake" theory. However, the WTC tower’s owner/lessee (Silverstein) is on video stating that Building 7 (if not the others) was "pulled" - meaning demolition charges must have been in place well before the event. Video anaylsis of the main towers exhibits evidence of explosive charges going off as the collapse proceeded, and neat piles of 30 foot steel sections argue for controlled demolition. The entire mess was cleaned up by Controlled Demolition, Inc., while the site was closed to forensics, and the rubble hurriedly shipped off to China. Further, the lack of airplane wreckage at the Pentagon remains unexplained, as well as the "coincidental" 9-11 stand-down of Air Force interceptors.

It took 445 days for a commission to be set up to study the disaster, over the objections of the Bush administration. The 9-11 commission, like the Warren Commission, was completely rigged from the beginning, forbidden to examine the how and why, and forced to concentrate on preventing future terrorist events. President Bush only appeared before the commission with puppeteer Cheney at his side and neither testified under oath. If the critics are right, this amounts to one of history’s greatest crimes - a prime example of state-within-a-state terrorism, and prelude to a neo-fascism.

Recommended reading: The War On Freedom, by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, The New Pearl Harbor, by David Ray Griffin, Inside Job, by Jim Marrs, 9-11 On Trial, by Victor Thorn.

CAPITALIST
TEN COMMANDMENTS

1. Do unto others before they do it unto you. Beggar thy neighbor and trade their employments without offset, tariff, or compensation to secure a bountiful profit from the greater slave. Engage the most authoritarian of regimes and let no morality, nor powers of the vast majority, interfere with the greater profits to be had from preserving disparities and all the powers of predation enjoyed by the rich.

2. In all things, see that your capital-defined Efficiency shall remain the only god, and let no morality, freedom nor ecological concern interfere with your divine right to profit and enclose for your benefit.

3. Thou shalt make money and power thy only god and pursuit, and not suffer any foolish idleness opening one to other occupations or dangerous revelations.

4. To secure thy power, thou shalt not let the people own or control their central banks - despite constitutional purse powers to the contrary - for debt money is the central power and motive force before which all others pale and remain impotent.

5. Thou shalt own and control all media and news dissemination agencies. Let not any editor be elected lest the people influence what they see, hear and read. Let all books, media, and education grow our values exclusively. Let not any fairness doctrine nor any notion of labor-capital "factor" balance interfere with this, our grand design.

6. In all things, thou shalt make Growth and per-capita ruin thy only gods, and defeat Balance at every turn. Thou shalt see that humanity endlessly multiplies. Let no balance of population arise which might serve to pass on the same quantum of freedom, earthly space, natural right and pleasure even to thine own children - as this would destroy our precious and profitable Growth.

7. In all things, thou shalt resist Balance, and both factor and gender equity for I, your male SkyGod, have told you so.

8. Let no freely communal or cooperative emerge, nor non-profit venture succeed - for such competition is to be feared and prohibited. Privative everything and control the reigns of power so the vast majority own no debt-free estate or may access any means with which they might secure their domestic freedom, independence, and democracy.

9. Let Nature's realm be conquered and set to your profit purposes. Patent and own nature's pharmacopeia. Change the nature of animals and humans alike to serve your ends. Render off limits those fertile lands and plants by which the masses might enjoy leisure, acquire natural freedom, secure refuge from our Free Market, or stumble upon revelations of a non-egoic, cooperative, and spiritual nature.

10. Let enclosure reign, for the landless and dependent are fodder for thy greater objectives. Let our Interdependency forever be mediated by the rich and powerful, and secured in the name of an Efficiency serving our ends alone. Seek to destroy any remnants of natural freedom, commonwealth, and domestic independence. Let our Free Market of neo-slavery prevail and thy will profit beyond one's wildest dreams.

The real test of freedom, justice, and democracy is whether writers of democratic and secular-oriented content can remain free from intimidation, persecution, prosecution, IRS audits, and interference with, of deletion of, their websites, books, and content - due to use and abuse of filtering software by libraries, "Patriot" Act provisions, slander by private parties, or even medieval Blasphemy codes and statutes. Clearly, any of the above would prove the case of the arguments herein and warrant court challenge, whether domestic or international, to correct abuses of the author's constitutional rights, and/or travel freedoms and privileges.




Internet Democracy is not Spam. It is the only free and uncensored media remaining for people around the globe now caught in a corporate-media world dominated by ruling elites. In practice, ruling interests combine to exclude independent candidates, suppress alternative ideas and persons, and secure not only their omission from major media but from political debates as well. Internet democracy is the antidote to plutocracy and a corrupt top-down globalization.
