Many of us realize that various nations throughout the world which are claiming themselves to be a Democracy, fall short of the greater ideal assumed to be embodied in the notion of Of the people, By the people, For (all) the people. While the descriptive "all" was contained in a sermon by Theodore Parker, Lincoln omitted it. In fact, according to Professor Buzzkill, variations of the phrase have a lineage from John Wycliff, through Daniel Webster, then to T. Parker into Lincoln's hands. So let us give credit where credit is due. Nonetheless, the phrase embodies an idea which defines the size of the government we are talking about. So if you embrace the slogan then you also embrace the size of government to which it speaks: By its very nature....

Democracies are Huge governments

If you are against a BIG Government you are against an honest practice of a real Democracy, and merely want to use the word "Democracy" as a nice book cover for a set of chapters, paragraphs, sentences that can be arbitrarily used to carry out the practice of a government that is not wholly democratic, and is instead some mix and match variation of Communism, Socialism, Libertarianism, Anarchism, Blackism, Whiteism, Brownism, Redism, Theology, Fascism, Dictatorship, Orientalism, Occidentalism, Monarchialism, Corporatocracy, LGBTQ Narcissism, Feminism, Matriarchialism, and the various other models of elitist self-centeredism which strive for personal gains that do not equate with an equalized distribution of social opportunistic appurtenances and instead derive their philosophical arguments from an effort to receive unequalized treatment based on their own rationalizations of what they think they deserve.

This is not to say that some future Cenocracy (New Government) will not comprise elements from two or more ideologies, it is just that in the current models of all political perspectives that have made the rounds of commonality... despite the many misinterpretations which have played out in philosophy and attempted application; fall short of their penultimate designs as well. Designs that unfortunately do not take into consideration the incremental deteriorations of the Sun (burning out), Earth (rotation is slowing), and Moon (Receding from Earth). Nonetheless, no single ideology today represents the greater ideal for which we of today have the collective fortitude to embrace in practice and concerted effort.

It is because this presumed greater ideal is not practiced nor is there an effort to reach a practice thereof, that an underlying protest of increasing resentment to all such false democracies has taken root and spreading. While this protest has not taken the form of that witnessed by historically distinct Revolutions, it nonetheless is being embraced as a great need so that Nationalism is reflected in a single idea of the Human Tribe or Clan, so that all peoples may share equally with resources to (at the very least) fulfill basic human needs; freedoms; civil rights guarantees of equanimity, and prospects for improvement, to name but a small handful of shared values. Without present governments being practiced to obtain a better practice of an Actual Democracy, it is altogether appropriate for us to claim an Independence on this U.S. tradition of celebrating its Independence having been achieved in 1776 from a structure of government which bound the people into a servitude which disabled an ability to create a government which they in the past knew was right and good for all citizens. Thus, so too must we of today likewise come to express a collective voice in demanding our Independence from a formula of government being practiced throughout the world in various disguises, which disallows the people to blaze their own trail and is instead forced to abide by the dictates of governmental traditions that enslave us to an inter-linked planetary system of culturally branded and yolked domestication instead of letting us be truly free.

And yet, we humans struggle with the word "democracy" just as we struggle to give an adequate definition... and therefore— discussion about this rather illusive idea about a presumed ideal state of being. Most often we find those who are speaking with the word "Democracy" on their lips are doing so from the vantage point of not having experienced a true democracy, but some shadowy semblance thereof. Then again, none of us know what a "true" Democracy is, but a conglomeration of idealisms placed under the label of DEMOCRACY are assumed to be representative thereof. However, all too often we come across so many different formulas and variations due to interpretations that are just as varied as those who try to describe truth, beauty, justice, peace, equality, etc... So very often the perception and therefore the interpretation of what a Democracy means is relegated to some contextual usage of application. Nonetheless, we come across varying opinions about an Actual Democracy, even though none of us have actually lived and breathed one. There are many, many, many variations of interpretation but few suggest a path towards achieving some enhanced practice of what we may one day come to collective define and practice as a democracy... or not, because there is a stark absence of opinions providing the variable of an ongoing environmental/planetary/biological decadence taking place, and that all government forms are little more than attempted survival mechanisms striving to maintain some semblance of equilibrium in a state of continuing global decay. The following two selections are not meant to be wholly representative of the vast literature on the topic of Democracy, but give some small measure of the present currency of considerations striving for originality of opinion... though there are many others which do so as well. The first one was selected because it bears a title similar to the title of this page and the second one exhibits and attempt at looking at the idea of Democracy by attempting to acquire an objectivity by looking at a practice of presumed government being used by an alternative life form, since humans regularly take ideas from other-than-human sources to adapt for their own uses.

This first selection has a title which gives the impression that the present practice of government may not be a Democracy, but that it is better than nothing, and that this formula can not readily be improved on (because of so many divergent opinions concerning this phenomena we attempt to describe as being a Democracy) so we must accept its many human-generated abuses and misuses or resign ourselves to a government that could well be worse... even though in the worst of conditions there are those who manage to live well at the expense of others. The author speaks with a claimed insight about what is meant by a Democracy but is inclined towards allowing far too many presumptions to enter into the discussion of what is or at least what she thinks should be representative of a Democracy. Some readers may like it because she speaks on several topics that have personalized interests in selectively given situations. Astra Taylor is trained as a Sociologist and not a philosopher nor Political Scientist, though she strives to integrate several disciplines into her socio-politico-historico-philosophy, like many others who strive to incorporate a multitude of perceptions striving for a larger comphrehensiveness. Like others before her, those contemporary with her, and those that will come in future years, we applaud them all for their efforts, however deep or superficial their respective perceptions may appear to some readers, in trying to translate a topic that has not yet achieved some working representation of the greater ideal which Democracy presumably means... but may be little more than a confabulation, like so many fairytales, myths, and legends. Humans like to tell a good story, (or even a bad one), particularly when it can be used to bring in an income. It is particularly interesting how so many accounts of democracy are tied to some pecuniary venture, as if Democracy can not be divorced from Capitalism... and whether or not you see Capitalism as a problem or appreciate it as just another tool that is so very often abused and misused by greed.

Book by Astra Taylor

There is no shortage of democracy, at least in name, and yet it is in crisis everywhere we look. From a cabal of plutocrats in the White House to gerrymandering and dark-money campaign contributions, it is clear that the principle of government by and for the people is not living up to its promise. The problems lie deeper than any one election cycle. As Astra Taylor demonstrates, real democracy?fully inclusive and completely egalitarian?has in fact never existed. In a tone that is both philosophical and anecdotal, weaving together history, theory, the stories of individuals, and interviews with such leading thinkers as Cornel West and Wendy Brown, Taylor invites us to reexamine the term. Is democracy a means or an end, a process or a set of desired outcomes? What if those outcomes, whatever they may be?peace, prosperity, equality, liberty, an engaged citizenry?can be achieved by non-democratic means? In what areas of life should democratic principles apply? If democracy means rule by the people, what does it mean to rule and who counts as the people?

Democracy's inherent paradoxes often go unnamed and unrecognized. Exploring such questions, Democracy May Not Exist offers a better understanding of what is possible, what we want, why democracy is so hard to realize, and why it is worth striving for.

This next selection is an alternative approach at not only giving an opinion of what an author thinks Democracy means, but how it can be practiced in real terms... after being translated from the insect world to the very many both real and artificial worlds of humans. The book offers an opportunity for some to attempt a greater appreciation of the "Democracy" topic from an other-than-human application... or at least a human interpretation of non-human circumstances interpreted to be applicable to humans. Some readers who are inclined towards creative thinking may enjoy this story, and even lead them to try their own attempts at deriving some interpretation of democracy being practiced in other life forms... though their musings may not lead them to write a book with the primary or secondary or tertiary purpose of acquiring an income. Thomas Seeley is a trained Biologist. Like Astra Taylor, he has a sincere interest in offering an opinion for the purpose of assisting humanity towards achieving a better formulaic practice of life for everyone, equally.

Book by Thomas Seeley

Honeybees make decisions collectively--and democratically. Every year, faced with the life-or-death problem of choosing and traveling to a new home, honeybees stake everything on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. In fact, as world-renowned animal behaviorist Thomas Seeley reveals, these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to collective wisdom and effective decision making. A remarkable and richly illustrated account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees.

In the late spring and early summer, as a bee colony becomes overcrowded, a third of the hive stays behind and rears a new queen, while a swarm of thousands departs with the old queen to produce a daughter colony. Seeley describes how these bees evaluate potential nest sites, advertise their discoveries to one another, engage in open deliberation, choose a final site, and navigate together--as a swirling cloud of bees--to their new home. Seeley investigates how evolution has honed the decision-making methods of honeybees over millions of years, and he considers similarities between the ways that bee swarms and primate brains process information. He concludes that what works well for bees can also work well for people: any decision-making group should consist of individuals with shared interests and mutual respect, a leader's influence should be minimized, debate should be relied upon, diverse solutions should be sought, and the majority should be counted on for a dependable resolution.

An impressive exploration of animal behavior, Honeybee Democracy shows that decision-making groups, whether honeybee or human, can be smarter than even the smartest individuals in them.

It is significantly problematic that the United States and other Nations professing to practice some variable representation of a Democracy retains an elections system which not only permits an idiot like Trump and his Congressional and other government-employed supporters to run for office or submit an application in the first place— because there are no public safe guards preventing incredulous characters from being mistaken for legitimate contenders; but that such individuals can even acquire a permanent or semi-permanent position speaks to the nature of an underlying system of embraced flaws in the system of practiced governance as well as to the presence of impractical familial and national traditions as well as a faulty system of both private and public education that the entertainment industry and corporate activity is a part of, that must include the now growing infamous character known as Journalism... with all its ulterior-motivated machinations and self-serving elitist inclinations which presupposes itself as a voice of the people, though the people had no voice in whether to select them for this assumed position or otherwise.

No less, it continues to be unconscionable for political candidates to expect the public to support them in their efforts to gain a government position in which they may honestly campaign on the hope to bring about corrective changes to some highly visibly displayed social inequality... when such support does absolutely nothing to address the actual underlying problems of a faulty government design to which candidates will most likely not address either because:

  • They don't actually want to change the faulty system of government, because they have learned to work within the corridors of its faulty design;
  • Or they do not actually grasp the nature of the problem, to provide a viable alternative design for;

...But simply play out the role of a glorified office manager who receives entitlements that the rest of the public must pay for or else be subjected to some financial impairment, but not likewise be entitled to with respect to receiving the same basic rights as everyone who is politically connected (such as legal and medical coverage) and receive secured guarantees that a basic standard of living will be provided in terms defined by the public within their respective economic-driven social circumstances, and not some ad hoc employment/impoverishment guideline created by those who have no actual first-hand experience with the travails that job and career seeking often entails, or long term poverty whose persistence is reinforced by a modicum of welfare efforts that often reek of insufficiency, nor have the capacity for empathy beyond a employment level of expected sympathetic gesturing.

A faulty system of democracy as that practiced by the United States and other so-called or 'wannabe' (want to be) democracies, one in which a stock market thrives due to the presence of incompetence in a politically guided leadership; portrays an underlying fragile economic system propped up by a rationale of self-serving pathological interests whose dimensions of incorporated psychology undermine the long-term stability of a citizenry that prefer to cling to the rotting roots of traditions guarded by political ambitions designed by short-term visions interpreted as historical revisions that do not take into account the contingencies of a required evolutionary change in government because they are little more than misidentified adaptations to temporary circumstances. Hence, the cyclical occurrence of economic disparities either blamed on a small conflict or the usage of a larger conflict to remedy a situation initially produced by a conflict instigated by ambitions often incongruent to the requirements of progress outside the petty interests of singularly minded individuals or groups.

Justin Amash comment

Many of us have read in a Washington Post commentary that has since been followed up by other News Sources such as The Media(ite), in which Representative Justin Amash says that he has grown disenchanted with party politics and frightened by a two-party system that has "evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions." Unfortunately, his sentiment and the millions of echoes which are no doubt resonating because of a like-mindedness that is intimating we need a New Government (a Cenocracy), but have not yet come to the forefront of demanding that we do... not only with words but with a sustained and forceful push towards this end. It doesn't matter how many of us agree if we are forced by the system to abide by its duplicity and rigged elections system.

The caption of Justin Amash is underlined with a comment concerning the usage of a "Peoples Legislative Branch". A crude and simple variation of this is already in use in the legal system called the Jury... or a Trial by Jury. Extrapolating from this we get "Government by Jury" from which is an evolved "Government by Peoples Legislative Branch". The words 'evolve', 'development' and 'progress' are aligned in order to assist in the process of a Peoples Legislative Branch usage in order to get people used to the idea as its implementation progresses to its complete embedded placement in government operations. In other words, we can transition ourselves into the usage thereof so that the current mindset of government processes does not stir up more confusion than the current one already advances because of its inherent problematical design. If we feel and logically construe that a Trial by Jury is a good idea, then its applied profile in terms of a Peoples Legislative Branch, should not be too difficult to appreciate with the a similar level of valuation. Perhaps the usage of some images might help as in the following characterizations which illustrate that the public, by law, is guaranteed to be a main part of the Judicial procedure, and not remain as a spectator. However, in a fully transitioned-into Peoples Legislative Branch, the people themselves will have supreme judgmental power, and current governmental power will be reduced to that of a servant, as is supposed to be the case in a "Peoples" government.

Three types of images are provided:

  1. Present Checks-and-Balances model used in variations by different so-called "Democratic" governments that practice an exclusionary principle of peerage.
  2. Courtroom profiles of Checks-and-Balances model presently used by the government and another revised to illustrate a Will-of-the-People "Jury of one's peers" provision to be adapted to how the government needs to be redesigned and redefined to allow the people to have a full measure of their Inalienable Rights.
  3. Checks-and-Balances model utilizing a Will-of-the-People Legislative provision.

It is ludicrous to think that the repeated deaths of Service Men and Women engaged in combat, somehow legitimizes the hypocrisy of a government and magically transforms it into the greater ideal of its "Representative government status" much less to define this status as the actions of a "Democracy".

Note: We at Cenocracy.org do not agree with the following assessment culled from the World Population Review, and offer it merely as a guideline for a beginning discussion on what is meant by a democracy and how all government professing a democracy fall short of that which the peoples of the world are in desperate need of in order to begin a more fruitful journey into the future. Our objections related to the presented comments are generalized as:

  • We consider all democracies as being flawed.
  • A system of elections is routinely not used to "change the Government", and instead merely changes those elected to position who will more often than not, simply act as office managers within established political guidelines. Hence, no government is changed, unless we think that all governments have flexible foundations whose established rule and regulations can be altered simply by electing someone different than before.
  • Protection of human rights for everyone should be enlarged to install provisions for protecting all life forms.
  • "Active participation of citizens" is an ideal that is never currently achieved, particularly when such a statement is absent the "all" so that "all citizens" are equally provisioned. Similarly, the "all" is missing for the slogan: "Of the people, By the people, For (all) the people". At present citizens throughout the world are not provided a full measure of participation.
  • All laws should apply equally to all those who enter a country and provided a means of a livelihood for which they would pay taxes for, if enabled to participate as a citizen though citizenship status has not yet been acquired due to an obstructive system of immigration.
  • A provision for being able to vote one's leaders into office does not in itself constitute a democracy when the reality is that the system in which they are elected to govern can be organized to be otherwise unanswerable to the public without the citizens taking it upon themselves to violently protest because there are no legal routes to interceded on their behalf, without those legal routes being organized with laws which allow the government to undermine the Will of The People.
  • As can be interpreted from comments made by Professor Alastair Smith in a conversation with Michel Martin on NPR's Tell Me More Program segment entitled Why Don't More Countries Have Democracies?; Excuses are made for not taking the hard work that needs to be done to empower the people. While his remark was solely referencing a question concerning the idea in which there is a view "that some societies are culturally more conducive to democracy than others", it is clear that the lack of effort to create a greater empowerment of the people is reflective of multiple other excuses being routinely adopted as both rational and logical, when the are not.

Democracy Countries 2019

What is a democracy? A democracy is a form of government where the citizens of the nation have the power to vote. There are several different types of democracies:

  1. A representative democracy is a system where citizens choose government representatives among their citizens.
  2. A direct democracy is when the citizens form a governing body and vote directly on issues.
  3. A constitutional democracy limits the powers of government through the nation’s constitution.

Political Scientist Larry Diamond's four critical elements for a democracy:

  • A system of elections used to choose and replace the government.
  • Protection of human rights of all people.
  • Active participation of citizens in politics and civics.
  • All laws apply equally to all citizens.

According to the Democracy Index, which is compiled the Economist Intelligence Unit of the United Kingdom, there are just a handful of nations that are full democracies. According to the 2018 index, these democratic countries are:

According to the index, a number of nations are classified as "flawed democracies." While elections are free and fair and there are basic civil liberties, there are faults in other aspects, such as low levels of participation in politics and civics or an underdeveloped political culture. Nations that were categorized as flawed democracies include:

1st series of flawed democracies 2nd series of flawed democacies

Only those who still fall prey to the illusory inebriated patriotisms of ignorance... or let's say: delusion of USA Politics representing a purported democracy, find any real value in the Presidential debates presently taking place. It is merely the same old drum beat with different drummers vying for a personal position at the helm of a ship whose crew is a Legislature which represents special interests because the people are rarely if ever permitted to voice a concerted opinion and have that opinion become the law of the land. In short, those who find excitement in the Presidential debates are living in a fantasy world about the practice of a government that calls itself a Representative Democracy, but that Representation is not for the majority of the people. The American brand of democracy is a farce. In order to create a better, a New model of social self-governance... a "Cenocracy" (meaning New Government), let us begin by adopting the following provisions at the outset of development:

  1. Mandatory Term limits for all government employees and anyone receiving a government contract.
  2. Complete removal of the Electoral College.
  3. All politically appointed personnel will have their pay and benefits reduced when other-than-pay-and-benefits are received from any source. For example, monies received from speaking engagements, foundations, businesses, foundations, campaign contributions, lottery and other gamblings, gifts, etc., whether from family or non-family members and whether in the US or not.
  4. Any person wanting to run for any office will have the same opportunity to participate in debates... whether or not they have the funds to promote a campaign effort that costs other candidates millions of dollars in advertisement and related forms of persuasion sometimes referred to as bribery. Inference in any form, whether before, during or after a debate, will be forced to repeat. The present process of determining who can and can not participate is elitist and prejudicial. Here is a list of Presidential Candidates (2020).
  5. All government employees, politically appointed or otherwise, will have to receive the same level of medical care and other benefits made available by them to the rest of the public.
  6. All forms of Double Dipping will be stopped, whether speaking of the typical paycheck/pension variety or else wise as might occur unnoticed or undocumented.
  7. All Supreme court justices will have to be chosen by the people through the Peoples Legislative Branch, which will then conduct the selection process by way of a National referendum as the first, second and final arbiter in the entire process.
  8. Disallow all incumbents from Campaigning on previous platforms that were to be addressed after taking office the first time.
  9. The establishment of a People's Legislative Branch for which the entire government will be answerable to, including the Supreme Court, because it will be run by the public themselves.
  10. So long as Journalists are permitted to elect themselves into a position of the sole arbiter who decides what is and isn't fair or just, or moral, or what is meant by civil rights, animal rights, woman's rights, and other social issues, the entire elections system will continue to be rigged. Journalism has self-assumed the position of being able to determine social propriety in all circumstances, including the attempted instigations of perpetuating social problems just so it can act... if not as a self-appointed mediator with total diplomatic immunity because it wears a Press Pass that entitles it to be the reigning observer and recorder of events; then as some set-apart self-favored status which includes the provision of deserving greater protections and deference than all other citizens. Because journalism assigns itself it the varied position of being judge, jury and executioner as well as historian and innocent bystander all in one role... whichever hat it cares to wear on a given day so that it can be better advantaged than all other citizens, the entire election system and other occasions of government activity will continue to be a status quo formula of being a fixed system of gambling... because they have ulterior motivated monetary and other self-serving interests. We find that in so many cases Journalists can not be trusted without applying the same scrutiny we give others who claim an expertise.
  11. (Yes there are others topics that can be added, that involve both government policies and non-government polices which the government practices anyway for each and every election, but these few will suffice at this time with the exception of the latter foregoing example.)

Until the US people can have some definitive changes in the overall political atmosphere by such changes as those just described, the US government is rightly recognized as a farce. U.S. Americans and all other peoples on the planet Earth (China, Russia, Canada, Britain, Australia, Germany, etc...) do not have an Actual Democracy. The closest value of a Democracy is seen in Switzerland with its formula of "Direct Democracy", but it too falls short of the greater idea encapsulated by the words "A government Of, By and For All the People". While this ideal is thought to be unrealistic given present human conditions, these present circumstances are in large part brought out by the farcical models of democracy being promoted and practiced. The claim that an "actual" Of, By and For All The people type of government is impossible to achieve, thus provides its advocates to declare they alone have the right to determine the extent to which a Democracy is to be defined as well as practiced.

In America and elsewhere, the people are being subjected to widespread Narcissism. In the case of Trump communicating with North Korea's Leader Kim Jong-un, it is no wonder they can see eye to eye. Trump is envious that Kim Jong-un has been able to retain his position indefinitely as supreme ruler because this is what Trump would have liked to accomplish, and many of their followers seek to live in a world in which they had a life-long Sovereignty be it with the title of a Caesar, King, Divine Authority or whatever. It is a profile of government which was instilled in the beginning of America because it arose as a basic formula of thinking in an era in which kings and queens and assorted rulers lived... despite the desire of many to rid themselves of bad rulers. The desire for a central figure, like that of the presently practiced idea of a single god is the makeup of the human mentality for many people whose mindset is akin to the primitive worldview orientation characteristically described by many archaeological artefacts but not regularly identified, much less labeled as such. This mentality helped to create the presently practiced formula of the U.S. and other Democracies that give the impression of having moved away from past expressions of Nearctic leadership, only to have it represented by another kind of self-centered elitism. So too do we see it represented by other social activities such as in the many entertainment industries such as sports, theater, television, radio announcers, corporate leaderships, movies, military leaderships, LGBTQ self-absorbed over-compensations for feelings of inadequacy and desperation for seeking a separate-but-equal social status, etc... The Narcissism so prevalent in so many sectors of the US society has bred a vociferous type of arrogance that fans often vote for other than Americans even if the Americans are favored to win. Americans have lost their bootstrap, rags-to-riches underdog humility which has previously served them well as a favored humility and wisdom that was once honored, favored and respected.

In short, we are living in a world with multiple governments which permits social controlled developed and policed by the values embraced by psychopaths. Psychopathology is a prerequisite for many occupations in an incrementally deteriorating planetary environment with over-crowding and a reduction in resources:

Whereas in a government like that of the U.S. where elections do take place, be though that they are rigged along the lines of a single-mindedness, it at least provides the provision of eventually getting rid of elected idiots like Trump whose initial naiveté of responsibility to a given office is excused when they exhibit non-traditional role playing; but become more scrutinized as time wears on if they continue to portray an ignorance and insensibility to a larger world-view audience and retains a narcissi personality journalistically described as Nationalism. Refusal to change in the course of a given term displays a stupidity that should never have been permitted to continue for as long as it did, much less been elected in the first place within the process of a fix (electoral college) system. Without being able to adapt with an expressed maturity of demeanor and activity, even some of his followers have recognized that his crudeness was not an expression of inexperience, but an embedded inadequacy.

In order to bring about progressive change in the species by way of social organization, a New Formula of government must be practiced.

Representative Democracies like that practiced in the U.S. are a sham in that they are used as dressed up lip service to conceal varying types of Oligarchs, Corportacracies, Nationalistic Imperialisms, Fascism, Dictatorship, distorted brands of Communism, Socialism, Libertarianism, Anarchy, and other undesirable governing processes. Some of these undesirable forms of government have become legitimized by the language being used to describe them. Here is a List of forms of government.

Legislatures are not truly answerable to the collective voice of the people because that voice is often muted, detoured, interfered with, obfuscated, forced to endure unrealistic time, money and other resource constraints, and a myriad of other courses which help selective individuals and special interests have the final word... which is often expressed and made into a law or policy for which the people must comply or subject to varying legal punishments by way of a judicial system that has been constructed first and foremost to serve the interests of those in the government, while the majority of people remain akin to ostracized peasants that are not permitted entry into the political citadel and are thus not actually counted as having the full civil rights and privileges guaranteed to those who are politically connected.

In creating a web page whose singular word "Cenocracy" is defined with an underlying premise of promoting the idea of proposing the adoption of a New Government, readers from around the world need to know that they too are amongst those being addressed who recognize the presence of many inequalities, and that they too, and not just US citizens, must have an equal voice in making a similar proposal with respect to their own society. Unfortunately, there are lots of people who like familiar drum beats and drum beaters, as well as old songs, old dances, and additional memorizations that they label as traditions. Many people are fearful of the unknown and prefer to think they are safe, even when this is not true. They somehow think it a grand sacrifice to die for something they believe in, even if the belief is based on a lie. Because a Lie shared by millions is felt to be valuable, no matter how distorted the reality is.

One of the primary concerns of those interested in discussing the adoption of a New Government is the selection of political process to be used, or do we need to adopt an altogether different type of social self-governance which radically departs from all known types of government (such as Anarchist formula, or Communism, or Democracy, Libertarianism, Religion, Socialism, etc... For example, while many claim Democracy to be the best form of government despite the continuing presence of so very many variations and faults; in order to get rid of Democratic forms of repeated inclinations towards producing both unintended and intentional problems, a presumed "better democracy" necessarily means it is a brand of Democracy that has not been practiced before. Indeed, how do we practice something for which there is no role model? Since one of the recurring problems with all variations of currently practiced democracy invariably instigate and thereby require citizens to portray a patriotism which exhibits such a flaw, how do we change the government if learned behavior amongst citizens are so used to practicing that which is problematic, but is all they know?

How do we develop a better society if the political practices that are put into place to assist us in this effort routinely create conditions which perpetuate and instigate inequality, so that those involved in the political processes are enabled to maintain a control over the public which is used to force a given individual's definition of progress, though we have routinely seen that most definitions of equality for all have an inherent system of exceptions, requirements and other criteria which prevents most people from enjoying an actual equality? Then again, what do we mean by equality? That which finds agreement with a majority or that which permits a given economic system to thrive despite the presence of so many inequalities? When we have a vocal group of people defining equality in terms of sexuality as the dominant theme by which equality is to be measured and thus sought a remedy for, what happens when this vocal group does not then also vocalize for the passage of equality acts meant to address and solve all the complaints of inequality for everyone, without having to support a position based primarily on sexuality?

Unfortunately, those claiming to support an act of equality are not pursuing the means by which a government can be transformed to ensure equality. They simply pursue making changes within a process of political activity that remain an inherently designed instrument of perpetuated Inequality, despite claims that a government is predicated on the notion of equality as suggested by the phrase "A government of the people, by the people, for the people".

Humanity is in the throes of a circumstance in which the birthing trauma all infants experience suggests we are born into this world in a blind rage which persists, as evidenced by the repetition of violent (vengeful, hateful, exploitive, discriminatory, ambivalent) expressions frequently coupled with sorrow seen in so many practices often seen in activities involving hoped-for pecuniary gain, power and control. And it is this recurring condition (coupled to an incrementally deteriorating solar system and planet), which keeps us from seeing a greater truth, despite all the philosophical and religious efforts embraced to assist in the mollification of the birth trauma and its after-effect influences. Indeed, the acknowledgment that the Viability of DNA has a limitation outside a living organism, suggests it too may have a limitation to its reducibility in terms of the life span of all biology. Nonetheless, despite this extended biological consideration, a more down-to-earth analogy is to say that we humans are living in a great fog (due to the blind rage created by the birthing trauma) which many acknowledge and are striving to step out of and into an unknown that causes many to shirk from out of fear, and create various forms of ideological crutches, wheelchairs, and intoxication which are chains of dependency which shorten their ability to reach beyond the limitations of their humanity. Limitations that are enabled to reach beyond by simply applying their efforts to a given belief and practice that they convince themselves they have achieved as indicated by the quantity and/or quality of those that share in their views.

In present day terminology, the birthing trauma has created a rarely understood, much less discussed Post Traumatic Disorder which can be seen in our businesses, politics, and religious activities. Let us look at a definition of the disorder and then couple the descriptions to instances of experiences which are related:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD.

It is a widespread mental health problem that is not seen as a wide spread mental health problem because everyone suffers from it, and thereby create social orders formulated in conjunction with established attempts-at-coping behavior that we call culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, sports affiliation, business interests, etc... We often describe coping mechanisms in terms of maturity, social adjustment, life skills, and various others references which are used as socially organized mollifiers adopted as rationales that are used as definitions to describe some desired measure of rationality called normalcy... in which multiple groups can feel good about themselves and establish a network of sociability that conceals the fact that large numbers of people share the same level and type of expressed birthing trauma. It has become so engrained as an overlooked given called "Human Nature", that the general public is overlooking the fact that the Military is an organization that does not actively seek a sustained level of peace, by desiring to win one or another war; because this is anti-thetical to its continued existence which it wants to perpetuate as a viability by ensuring its own job security by establishing confederates both in and out of government who will assist it in creating conditions to instigate one or another type of conflict and laughably supply some concocted justification, no matter what gets destroyed or who or how many get hurt in or outside of a given nation... even their own, such as in the disgusting 9-11 attack which millions of Americans think that the U.S. government played a large role in. Like generals ordering men and women to their deaths in order to carry out some pathetic notion labeled a military strategy, Presidents, Congresses and military armament manufactures have no qualms about killing a few hundred, a few thousand, or even millions of fellow citizens to fulfill personalized interests, often involving some monetary gain.

With respect to the forthcoming U.S. Presidential election:

  1. Millions of Americans are faced with the proposition of having no one to vote for because they acknowledge that the political system effects a conveyor belt formula of routinized (ceremonialized) activity in which the roles of politicians are that of office managers akin to the old nomadic clan notion often described as "keepers of the flame", and are not true "trail blazers" with a vision for applicable progress concerning the nation as well as humanity. The typical progress obtained by most politicians is a personalized gain within a small social enclave that is repeatedly played out in blatant ignominious exhibitions related to race, religion, and sexual orientation... along with fiduciary greed. (I use the word "fiduciary" instead of "Capitalistic" because despite the adversarial disparagements found in Communism and Socialism, "Capitalism" is just a tool. Like a gun, rifle, screwdriver, wrench, spatula, frying pan, pencil, typewriter, etc... It can be used for good or ill. It is not a living entity, though many seem to suggest this by engaging in anthropomorphism, where human characteristics are attributed to it.])
  2. Many eligible voters will not vote because they rightfully believe the political system is fixed because it has social and economic barriers which prevent most people from becoming a viable alternative candidate. Hence, far too often the general public is faced with a type of political aristocracy in which they are forced to vote for the lesser of two or more evils.
  3. Others will simply cast a vote for someone who does not have a chance in even becoming a part of the political debates which are most often managed as a socialized pageantry (akin to a beauty contest, horse race betting form, county fair 3-legged race, or dog show), to give the people the impression that they have a second-to-none democracy practiced with an above-the-board or on-the-table honesty... which they don't.
  4. Still others participate in the political process because they somehow have convinced themselves they are engaging in a second-to-none practice of democracy, and that not to vote is an act against their patriotic duty and civil right... regardless of how futile their vote is when there is a contrived system of one-sidedness called the Electoral College.
  5. And let us not forget to list those eligible voters who think they can somehow "make a statement" by not voting, yet their personalized statement never becomes fully voiced in the larger public arena in order to bring about corrective political change.
  6. Needless should we disinclude those who want to pursue the adoption of another type of political system such as Anarchy, Communism, Libertarianism, Socialism, etc., by voting in a specific person claiming to represent such views, yet all such candidates have no aptitude, much less contemplative vision beyond the formative establishment of a different form of government that is an old idea cast with a new book cover. Whereas they may want to be the founding mother or father, so-to-speak, of a different political practice, their efforts to take the nation and humanity beyond the historically reached venues of social activity (all of which have previously faltered in different countries despite the well-meaning and intentions of leadership); do not include an applicably practical vision of reaching a new horizon beyond that which has already been conceived and haphazardly put into place. They simply want to practice some altered formula of antiquated Anarchy, Communism, Democracy, Libertarianism, Socialism, etc., and use different labels that will enable them to convince the public the beginning of a new Rennasiance has begun... when nothing has actually changed but new faces playing the same roles with the same rules... and the public is subjected to a vehicle that is spinning its wheels.
