The three fundamental changes necessary for a more perfect union: 1. Redesigning education, changing its purpose and basic function from preparation for the world of work to preparation for life, and a general understanding of reality. a. Rather than the standard approach of forced memorization, the practice of education would consist of various methods of gradual memory consolidation. Such methods would improve memory, and in effect improve intelligence and understanding on the whole. b. Putting education on its head, focusing on education at the kindergarten through fifth grade level, with as much information given, and applied as purposefully as possible, focusing on the increase of intelligence and smartness; the later years of middle and high school would be the years preparing the young people for life: vocational, technical, general. c. The standard teacher at the k-5 level would be that of a professor of whatever chosen field they profess, and it would be the responsibility of the administration to hire those capable of this task. d. The pay rate of educators and school workers would be justly increased due to their vital role in society, but so would expectations. (However, such recalibrations of pay rates would be


expressed throughout the economy of human potential.) 2. Abolishing the banking systems and other monetary institutions of the country wherein this system is accepted, replacing them with a governmentally run system of exchange. a. The use of government issued currency, and the disuse of bankrolled-fiat currency would ensure a return to times of sound monetary exchange—if there ever were such times. b. In combination, the use of electronic currency independent from the value structure of material goods, is potentially unlimited to its possessor (Joe Citizen); without debt, taxation, interest, or usury attached whatsoever to currency or entitlements will drastically improve the economic climate, and pacify the chaotic cycle of booms and busts that fractional reserve currency ensures in economies based solely on material value structures. Such electronic currency would be entitlements exclusive to citizenship as an act of societal reciprocation. (In other words, something like debit cards that refill regularly as a reward for benefiting society with labor.) c. Changing the pay structure such that time is no longer the primary factor, superficial values are replaced basically by quality; working relative to one and other keeps competition, but takes away the appeal of slacking off. d. An office to formally, and independently qualify product and overall business quality (along the


lines of how beneficial the product is to everyone, how difficult it is to make, and demand for the product) would be established, essentially changing nothing about the way we look at how things should be priced, only its incentive is to progressively heighten quality and shorten cost. 3. Improving the checks and balances concept of the United States Constitution by adding a fourth branch. a. Much like the Judicial Branch, offices of this council will exist at county, state, and federal levels. b. Each office will be populated by nine voices of wisdom, to be both elected by the people and selected by the existing members of that office. c. Said branch will act as oligarchic advisor, its purpose to instill wisdom in the character of society through education, acting as the founder and supervisor of the newly proposed education system. d. Given the power to thwart foolishness in government, business, and public matters, and ensure wisdom in society, this branch is given great power. However, this branch is also stripped of its power; the law regarding assault and battery does not protect the heads of this office—meaning that they are absolutely subject to the people’s unrest—putting the people at the head of the governments’ systemic totem pole, where they belong.


In other words, the three elements needed to improve government and our lives are: 1. 2. 3. The fundamental change in practice and concept of education, as well as the structure of government. Revising the present currency standard and principle of profit motive. Wisdom.

Ultimately the goals of this form of development would be to facilitate: 1. The eventual elimination of the necessity of the pursuance of abstract object wealth (society without want) while heightening the standards of basic-andup living and productivity. 2. The continuous increase of overall and individual freedom, while at the same time redefining it to incorporate more liberty and duty to each person’s lives—so as to make them Happy and well lived in their own way—working towards the first goal. 3. Gradual progression towards planetary consciousness on an individual, indivisible basis. Setting the goals high, even small victories are milestones compared to the stagnant development of today, caused in part by the present institutions of business and government. This is the wisdom of the future; what this proposes is the denial of stagnation, and an end to the nonsense of the past.


These and other such improvements, at the people’s discretion, will vastly change society towards a more perfect union. For instance, redefining Citizenship into a privilege to be earned by work and participation in society, not something one is born with, would improve the general welfare of society and civilization. Under this precept, the rights that go along with citizenship are: food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and information—yet incentives are kept in tact by providing entitlements similar to the cash based money system of today, but the buyer is open to a global market. Upon considering utopian ideals, or the prospect of a more perfect union regarding the present, one considers what is different from now, as compared to the failures or imperfections of theory and practice in the past. What is most different from now as compared to then? Lets agree upon the obvious answers: the difference is the technological climate we live in today, and the resulting interconnectedness of humanity with itself as never before (and that potential for greater connectedness mounts with every passing year if applied correctly), and the difference is a necessity to transcend the powers that be as never before—to pass the threshold of governments and power structures based on antiquated and self serving premises, which have themselves evolved from premises and power structures of times long past. And like the terms liberal and conservative are used to divide the people, republican and democrat are parties used to provoke conflict over basic ideologies—prescribed to the public through the partner media, counting on the confusion inherent in our culture to manipulate public


opinion. As with most any noun that rests at the discretion of a culture that is purely and blindly man made (as opposed to the axioms or maxims, which are derived through observation of the environment) the system of government, as it presently exists, has slowly deteriorated to fit the desires of those who truly control it, guide it, and consider it theirs. Those who I speak of are the people themselves, and the corporations and political minds that the people have willingly given their sovereignty to. Slowly, as history and experience has shown, the people gradually relinquish their freedom and prosperity for supposed security, which is actually convenience and false security because present governments and corporations can only provide superficial solutions to deep seeded problems that they themselves created (the buck stops here for them), leading to the opposite of the people’s desires in the first place, causing them to demand more solutions from the government or corporations, leading to a greater loss of freedom, prosperity, and health. And as the generations unfold, they do not know what the previous generations had to begin with, and what was natural for them, and therefore feel their general lack of freedom and prosperity and health is normal, and are more willing to give up what their forefathers lived and died for. Therefore replenishment, repossession, or re-evolution of our concept of what it means to live now, as free people, is necessary ever so often. Whatever the factors are that contribute to the injustices of the world, their existence acts presently, that is undeniable if you believe they exist at all, yet whenever someone gives the society a proposal for really solving these problems addressed, the reply, the


excuse for inaction where action is due is always, “the way the world is now is the way the world is, and you can’t change that.” This is circular logic that gets everyone nowhere fast. We must forget how the world works now, not to cut it open to change it so that it is unrecognizable, but so that the frame of mind needed to make it better, more perfect than it was before, can come into being within society so that improvements can be made. Is now a constant state of existence that does not change, or is now an ever changing, ever growing state of existence that has only that one constant of change, which builds upon the choices that everyone makes day to day? If you are inclined to believe the latter, then the way things are now means nothing to you—and nothing means potentially infinite possibilities—and you are willing to go through harmless although frustrating insecurity and confusion to get it, to see subtle and slow improvements made, because that is what real change looks like. Culturally, Americans think this kind of amendment is terrifying, and culturally conspiracies have become something of a sin to believe in (laughable considering that the conspiracy perspective of history was the perspective of choice only a hundred years ago), but culture is only an aggregate of catchy fads that may lasts longer than one generation; anything cultural is without substance or real importance to our lives. Science is not a fad, religion is not a fad, philosophy is not a fad, and government is not a fad; these things are tools for our well being, but they are not stagnant, not naturally, as nature is not stagnant. Watch one of them become stagnant and you are witnessing its


decline; watch some or all go stagnate and you are witnessing our decline. Has our government become stagnant, without observable improvement, and society with it; have freedoms flourished, economies flowed, our technologies grown in a meaningful and productive way, or have they been directed at entertainment and other causes of mental stagnancy—driving society further into isolation? Would you say we are watching the decline of western civilization or the rise? The question is how much progress has been made in the 21st century really? No world can exist without progress; no being can call itself alive without improvement. But when it’s all about the image, the superficial, insignificant points matter more than the real ones, or they appear to matter more because it’s all in the image of what is presented. Providing the people with a distinguished media, one that is not corruptible by the government body itself, or by other big interests is essential to improving society and civilization. The truth and the honest perspective must be brought to the people by a comprehensive reporting service, using television and Internet for a way to convey raw data in a way that stimulates the mind, and creates a state of critical, intense thought towards global consciousness. The citizens, enlightened and intelligent, would require self sufficiency in this matter; administering their own media, absent advertising and corporate greed, to crush up the false truths and to properly digest reality on their own. A return to progress must be made, and these ideas are but stepping-stones in that direction. Do with them what you will.
