Our present state of affairs is pretty sad and the consequences will be both grim (and possibly violent) if we have to fight for our rights again. We are all held captives by our banks, by our media, by our government institutions DCS, ONI, CIA, NSA, IRS, etc. etc. Ever heard of Patrick Henry? “Give me liberty or give me death”? I chose liberty. So we better get to work before it’s too late. I am sure there will be at least a few sections where almost every one of my fellow American Citizens will find this work vapid or utopian – once you come to that point scroll back to the following second chapter with thoughts of the American naturalist Edward Abbey: “A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government” – why else would we have the 2nd Amendment?
As the alternatives to a peaceful radical change I see only the following four and I abhor them with equal passion:
Our abnormal gap between the top 2% who control the over 95% of the wealth of our country and remaining 260,000,000 impoverished Americans – don’t we all deserve somewhat similar benefits or is only the filthy rich and the politicians who get the best Medical, Dental, pension plans, etc. etc. That conflict can easily escalate to more than a verbal conflict and protests on Pennsylvania Avenue (the Texas state constitution already provides it a clause strong enough to secede; Cascadia (North West US states along with Canadian province of B.C. already have a flag and an anthem but no statehood – are we naïve that much to think this will last for ever?
Aside from H1N1 virus (presumably manufactured in the USA, what other illnesses did we conceive in absence of true conscientiousness? AIDS? Maybe. Bird flue? Maybe. Mad cow disease? Maybe. Legionnaire’s disease? Maybe. Post traumatic stress disorder? Maybe. – a little too many “maybes” for my taste.
Operation Paperclip brought (admitted) 1600 German and Nazi scientists in 1945, some of them having worked on mind control (MK), pharmaceutical industry, poison gasses and similar invisible killers. There are sources which claim there were over 3000 Germans brought to USA right after the WW2 including Werner Von Braun -the key scientist in our first Atom Bomb project – can anybody account for all of them today?
What if section one, or section two, three or all, of the Second Chapter leads to armed struggle? Bloodbath? Hell no – I am dead set against yet another civil war – but we do have the well equipped and brain washed forces trained only to obey – so Americans shooting on other Americans is not entirely unfathomable.
Unexplained acts of madness committed by non-institutionalized individuals (even non-adults) killings in churches, schools, post offices, military bases, shopping centers, parades any mass events. Oh wait – my mistake that is already happening as this is being written, with the media being able to cloak this into a single act of terrorism, madness or a different cloak of a different color – in spite of my chronological error, this is a good opportunity to induce a little bit of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Act 1 scene 4: King Duncan: :There’s no art To find the mind’s construction in the face. He was a gentleman on whom I built An absolute trust.” meaning that we can never be sure who will claim insanity as a defense and whom will the media protect by listing them as mentally challenged, unstable, etc. What matters is the cause and the action taken – once we get our eyes off the ball, we have been fooled – here I just fooled myself predicting that unstable acts may start occurring, having forgotten about Sirhan-Sirhan – the “single RFK assassin”, Lee Harvey Oswald – “the single JFK assassin”. – more such lunatics came in the ensuing decades we just didn’t put it all together.
With the strong probability of the above five points my following chapters will generate some greater attention to detail, accountability and be considered far less Utopian, but pragmatic. The Utilitarian sociology would mandate a more practical approach as in the above 5 bullets, but I would rather incline to put my faith in mankind even if I am deluding myself with following Consequentialist Utopia.
Academically we, here in the United States are not at a most desirable level in the world, many other countries’ kids beat us in math, comprehension, reading, physics, chemistry and similar skills. I don’t want to say we are stupid but we are very close to it (myself included, in spite of the fact that I was granted a very high academic degree) – which leads me to suggest that we must admit all the things we do NOT know. How many of us know about the Operation paperclip, excluding my mention in the above, operation Halyard (or Halyard Mission) operation Barbarossa, 2nd Punic War? The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki may have put an end to World War II, but they weren’t the only destructive weaponry developed during the war. From nerve and disease agents to the feared and coveted V-1 and V-2 rockets, Nazi scientists worked on an impressive arsenal. As the war came to a close in 1945, both American and Russian officials began scheming to get that technology for themselves. So it came to pass that 71 years ago today, so Nazi scientists arrived in the United States (other numbers go as high as over 200/300 Nazis) and were promptly put to work for Uncle Sam.

And it’s not only Werner Von Braun and atomic scientists, it was nerve gas medical teams, Mind Control teams (MK), micro chips implants – already begun in Sweden by 2017 some 100 companies had over 2000 employees implanted with micro-chips – does that not slightly collide with our right to privacy in the US? – How will we know if we are implanted or not while under general anesthesia?
As utopian as this may sound, kindly consider another two probable outcomes:
Outcome 1: an all out armed uprising (Texas already has a state constitution clause that allowing it to secede, Cascadia is well formed group in the US North-Western States and Canadian South-West provinces that already has a flag and a constitution – what is stopping them from an armed effort?
Outcome 2: Total take over of our government to protect their own financial interests by implementing micro-chips implants as shown above (Norway and Sweden already started it). In a case like that not even the armed uprising would be possible we would all be remote controlled.
Which of the two probable outcomes do you prefer? – None? Neither do I, but we have to get to do something as long as we are a government of the people, by the people and for the people given rights to pursue life, liberty and happiness, right to bear arms and all other unalienable rights as in our Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
This project will be massive, hard and long – so I can’t really afford to spare myself nor beat around the bush too much. Admittedly some of the ideas may sound radical, but let’s deploy them for only 10 years and the change will be evident – we will have our country back – nothing in our lives is worth fighting for, as much as our own freedoms and rights given to us by the founding fathers and many thinkers that we produced. It’s not only Gandhi who is on our side it is also George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, Andrew Jackson, John F. Kennedy, Robert F Kennedy, Adlai Stevenson, etc. We must mention other non-Americans with equal (if not greater valor – who say the worthiness of our causes and fought for us): Kasimir Pulaski, Tadeusz Koschiusco, Marquise de Lafayette, German general Von Steuben, and a handful of other non-Americans too. I find it un-American to be afraid of our own institutions like ONI, NSA, CIA, IRS, It is no accident that most Nobel prize winners are Americans, (and none of them can name 3 out of the 5 countries of the European second longest river (the Danube), since in our country we are all very highly specialized only in that one field, taught to turn a blind eye on spirituality, poverty, geography etc. etc. – that, I feel will be our undoing – I don’t want a prize, neither a “thank you”, nor a medal, nor a mention – I just want what we always had. I wish us all lots of good luck, courage, integrity and honesty to stay out of the present day muddy waters. There is a good chance other countries will look up to America again and even emulate us. If we don’t take radical steps very soon we will find ourselves between nowhere and good-bye. I don’t want to go there.
Look at these few statements and see if you agree:
If something is “rotten in the state of Denmark” – the Danish people should fix it.
If Mohandas Gandhi can defeat the vast and mighty British empire with peaceful means (and more importantly without the benefits of the US Constitution – we should be able to do better at home.
This is going to be a long essay with thousands of baby steps many sounding silly at first (i.e):
Every lawyer that loses his case will go to prison with his client
We will all abstain from voting – if the state of Rhode Island has 3 congressional districts let only one person vote for congress – that person will be liable and held responsible for all the works of his elected official; Same goes for Governors and Senators.
Value added tax will be computed differently (i.e. if there is any nudity, speculation, second-guessing, unsupported statements nor different and opposing sources will be taxed astronomically as to discourage irresponsible journalism and purveyors of lies/fake news).
US Congress to be held liable to that one voter (i.e. 6th Congressional district is composed of a bunch of one mule towns – does that entitle that representative to have to have a fancy apartment in Washington DC’s Watergate tower and a private house/estate at their home state, an estate in western Cuyahoga County? Absolutely not. Let alone the pension fund that exceeds the national average by a factor of 10, free top notch medical, dental – while the residents of that district can barely make ends meet? Get all the congress – (and Senate too) to learn and practice honesty transparency, reliability, responsibility, modesty. We will require all politicians to wear those silly paper party hats with rubber chin-strap when in public – so we can recognize them, – all bankers and finance professionals to sear a dollar signs around their ears as earings.
Religion: I am not entirely convinced that God exists but I can’t prove God does NOT exist either – however I decline to be indoctrinated by any organized religion. If you didn’t know, the Vatican is one of the wealthiest states on Earth, much of their wealth having come from the Crusader’s plunders, even some of the Nazi plundered art found its way to the Vatican. Their library does not allow any copies any photographs, and items shown, seen or exhibited. Vatican’s banker (Roberto Calvi) has been found hanged in London (presumably suicide) in 2003. There is no exact proof if this was suicide or murder – and neither can be good. Since the wealth of Vatican is inestimable it will be designated that Vatican will truly follow Christ’s example, give away all its wealth and eliminate hunger only in Africa. I am pretty confident that Vatican can accomplish a lot more – but let’s start small;
All “professionals” attorneys, physicians, accountants, bankers, will be required to provide “pro bono work as one fifth of their work week (10 work weeks per year). All persons involved in sexual abuse or scandals will be judged only by the jury of previously sexually abused men or women.
One of the key aims will be to reduce the gap between wealthy, unfathomably rich and the dreadfully poor, hungry, homeless. To that and we must bypass the lame, vapid excuse – oh, my Billy started working in our garage at the age of 12 and today he owns (anything enormous i.e. google, face-book, snap-chat, twitter, 35 Ford dealerships, etc. etc.). Irrespective the “humble beginnings of “my little enterprising Billy” – that same individual will have to spend 10 weeks out a year (only one fifth of their time and money) in foster homes teaching others how to be that “enterprising”
“All men are created equal” – are they? How do we explain that the top 2% of population of the USA holds some +95% of the wealth? I see no equality in that, nor do I wish to impoverish all the well-off people but just induce a more human, more fair, more equitable, more wide-spread interaction so to increase the first hand experience of the very well off with the rest of us – including the Elected president who will:
Follow the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson one of the key founding fathers and our third president: Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States of America, did away with many of the formalities of the office while he served. For example, while President, he answered his own door, sometimes in slippers; he preferred a handshake to others bowing; he did away with most state dinners; and he did not address Congress, but would send over his written remarks by messenger.
Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
From the target group of the anticipated positive changes I selected (mid April, 2018) Mark Zuckerberg on following grounds: During the month of March/April 2018 Mark Zuckerberg is nursing the biggest fall after losing $3.2 billion as large cap stocks disappointed for a fourth straight day. According to that we shall have enacted a Bill where every person’s most massive financial loss, will be equivalent to that person’s contribution the opening schools/hospitals in traditionally poorer states (Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, etc. – to be appointed by the Census bureau.
All museums, theaters, ballet, opera, street jugglers will have a minimum wage earners allowed at no cost, whether they work or not, since they can not be re-trained to become dentists overnight. This activity will be sourced out of our military budget.
I have no exact proof, nor time and place where Robin Williams said the following but with all credit due to him (or whoever the author was), I quote:
I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan
for peace. So, here’s one plan:1) The US will apologize to the world for our “interference” in their
affairs, past & present. We will promise never to “interfere” again.2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with
Germany, South Korea and the Philippines. They don’t want us there. We
would station troops at our borders. No more sneaking through holes in
the fence.3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and
leave. We’ll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder
will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of who or where
they are. France would welcome them.4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 day
visits unless given a special permit. No one from a terrorist nation
would be allowed in. If you don’t like it there, change it yourself,
don’t hide here. Asylum would not ever be available to anyone. We don’t
need any more cab drivers.5) No “students” over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they
don’t attend classes, they get a “D” and it’s back home, baby.6) The US will make a strong effort to become self sufficient energy
wise. This will include developing non polluting sources of energy but
will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The
caribou will have to cope for a while.
7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for
their oil. If they don’t like it, we go someplace else.
8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we
will not “interfere”. They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds,
rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides, most of what we give them
gets “lost” or is taken by their army. The people who need it most get
very little, anyway.
9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an island some place. We don’t need the
spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, it would make a good
homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.
9b) Use the buildings as replacement for the twin towers.
10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one
can call us “Ugly Americans” any longer. Now, ain’t that a winner of a
plan. “The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying ‘Give me your poor, your
tired, your huddled masses.’ She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling,
‘You want a piece of me?”
Yes I know this is a massive mix of poorly strung up ideas, but give me a chance to elaborate and provide background with plain reasoning, even those that don’t see the good of my first broad strokes may turn about face. I only had one loose cannon idea yesterday and the more I thin (read, analyze) the larger this idea gets – now out of my control. We are in a total train-wreck and I, for one do not enjoy watching train-wrecks although some people do – but those are less than human. Our lives will be judged by our posterity based on how much humanity, reason, compassion and happiness we brought to others and never by the number of zeros on our off-shore bank accounts – which should also be sanctioned.
This only an introduction in broad strokes and even after it’s finished (adopted) additional requirements may and should be a way towards spirituality and we can all agree that Art is here to en-noble us, and allow us a view of what we slew, all list of performances, films books:
A – film They shoot Horses, don’t they – Micahel Sarazen, Red Buttons, Jane Fonda.
B. film Electric Horseman – Robert Redford, Jane Fonda
C. film: 3 days of a condor – Robert Redford, Max Von Sydow, Faye Dunaway
D. film: Chinatown – Fay Dunaway, Jack Nicholson
E. Sling-blade – Billy Bob Thoronton
F. Grapes of Wrath film: Henry Fonda – book John Steinbeck
G. film: To kill a Mockingbird – Gregory Peck
H. The Nuttcracker and Swan Lake – Ballet by Pyotr Ilich Tchaikofsky
I. Opera: Il Nozze di Figaro – Mozart – one of the first organized resistance to a feudal lord’s right of the first night in bed with a new bride.
J. Jeoffrey Ballet – NYC – George Balanchine works of the NYC Ballet.
K. film Billy Elliott – British movie
K2 – film: Brassed off – British movie with Ewan McGregor and Pete Postelthwhite
L. Brazil – British film – Robert de Niro, Johnathan Pryce
M. A man for all Seasons – Thomas Moore – British Film with Sir Paul Scofield
N. Theater play: Breaking the code – Royal Shakespeare Company with Derek Jacoby – about Alan Thuring a gay mathematician who broke the German enigma Code but was killed in Greece by MI6
O. Catch22 – movie Orson Welles, Martin Sheen, Alan Arkin – book by Joseph Heller
P. Sculptures by Henry Moore, buildings by Antoni Gaudi (architect)
Q. Music by the US Marine corps band composed by John Philip Sousa.
R. music by the Russian “mighty five” – The Five, also called The Russian Five or The Mighty Five, Russian Moguchaya Kuchka (“The Mighty Little Heap”), group of five Russian composers—César Cui, Aleksandr Borodin, Mily Balakirev, Modest Mussorgsky, and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov—who in the 1860s banded together in an attempt to create a truly national school of Russian music, free of the stifling influence of Italian opera, German lieder, and other western European forms. The original name of the group, Moguchaya Kuchka, was coined in a newspaper article in 1867. Centered in St. Petersburg, the members of The Five are often considered to have been a rival faction to the more cosmopolitan, Moscow-centered composers such as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, although Tchaikovsky often used actual folk songs in his music and Borodin and Rimsky-Korsakov emphasized traditional European training in their work.
R-2 Most prominent Japanese composers like Masaru Sato, Koji Kondo, Yuzo Koshiro, and the chellist Yo-Yo-Ma together with the Argentine legend Astor Piazzolla (playing bandeon)
R-3 Argentine music (tango) and food (tapas) Astor Piazzolla, Lalo Schiffrin – composers.
R-4 music by both Johann and Richard Strauss (Austrians).
Even if we only stop here, this alphabet soup from A to R is mixed enough that at least 10% of the public will find some benefit – after a month of implementation we can re-mix the order by city – state, venue, etc.
Outcome can only be one: greater degree of beauty conscientiousness and self awareness, not to mention pride and self respect along with being stimulated to do good for others who are just a little less well-off. There is no fail in this “utopian logic” – it’s a win-win combination, let alone compared to the second chapter of this essay.

You thought I was finished? – So did I.
Considering the most dire consequences clear to anybody who followed the postulates of the Consequential Sociology approach: any other effort – or no effort at all, would be devastating.
Just look at geopolitics:
a) We have tensions with North Korea and a massive Navy fleet in the South China Sea, which involves another few nuclear powers: North Korea, China, Russia.
b) We have a major conflict in the Middle East over Syria: probable opponents: Russia, Iran, India, China – all nuclear powers
c) We have a major anti-Russian effort in Europe on account of possible Russian involvement in the US Elections and poisoning of a useless Russian double agent, consider the Mid-April article in the NY Post titled: Russia: Swiss lab analysis shows nerve agent designed in West, quoting: “MOSCOW — Russia’s foreign minister says Moscow has received a document from a Swiss lab that analyzed the samples in the nerve agent poisoning of an ex-Russian spy, which points at a Western-designed nerve agent as a likely cause. Minister Sergey Lavrov said Saturday that Moscow received the confidential information from the laboratory in Spiez, Switzerland, that analyzed samples from the site of the March 4 poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury. He said the analysis was done at the request of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
In summary no empire on Earth ever fought a war on three fronts so vastly distant that it will require our elementary school children to get mobilized. So let’s quit, while we are ahead and implement my silly ideas.
Now, I’m done but there are many more critical view to be developed particularly with major topics of finance (banking, MMF), government “deregulation”, media, advanced forms of economic slavery. Additional follow-up with disintegration of a moral fabric from the mouth of a London whore (she rationalizes heftily in favor of being called “a lady of leisure) – the 25 year old Simone Toon, in her own words, sourced at: https://nypost.com/2016/11/03/im-a-sexy-sugar-baby-and-dont-need-a-job/
