In presenting the idea for the need to establish a Cenocracy (New Government), it is important to make a few references that were systematically gathered, one after the other, by typing in "actual democracy" as the internet search criteria via the 'goggle' links engine. The following are just a few examples:
In the above list, I had to italicize and underline the expression "no longer" with respect to the the Princeton study link. It's rather humorous since it is doubtful that the world has ever seen an "Actual" democracy, particularly not the United States nor Britain, for all the assertions those in authority may want to suggest otherwise. Whereas many have claimed that America's Democracy is foremost, as if it were a god-like representation of supremacy without equal, no one has ever actually seen nor experienced this Democracy. It is laughably ludicrous to think that some people really believe that the brand of democracy being practiced today is an actual democracy! The only thing supreme is their naivete'.
For those interested in the Tax Protest Movement, you should see the dark side of activity some of its proprietors have constructed:
If you disagree with the tax structure, or that taxes are being used wrongly, or that taxes are illegitimate, or whatever, then we need to change the structure of government. Killing an IRS agent or bombing a federal agency is not going to alter the tax structure. This only makes the government and many in the citizenry angry against the perpetrators whose main diplomacy gives the impression of being heavy-handedness. Killing and destruction are actions of last resort... after the public has protested en masse. Taxes do a lot of good when appropriately directed. It is not that taxes are bad, but those who are in charge of using them under legislated guidelines frequently apply taxes poorly. If We The People think we can do a better job at governance, then let's change the structure of government by creating a New Government (a Cenocracy). The new formula will thus be a type of Cenocratic formula.
And it should be noted, for those interested, that typing in the word "Occupy" will provide various examples of those involved with the "Occupy Movement", that has now received a singular definition being ascribed to it in a Wikipedia article:
The Occupy movement is the international branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement that protests against social and economic inequality around the world, its primary goal being to make the economic and political relations in all societies less vertically hierarchical and more flatly distributed. Local groups often have different focuses, but among the movement's prime concerns deal with how large corporations (and the global financial system) control the world in a way that disproportionately benefits a minority, undermines democracy, and is unstable. It is part of what Manfred Steger calls the "global justice movement.
Here are three additional references:
If we take the efforts of those wanting to establish an "Actual Democracy" as a prima facie account of sincerity to speak of that which is felt and thought to be a more fair... a more equitable distribution and practice of the trinitarian sets typically displayed as Of, By, For All the people and Equality, Justice, Liberty; then by this same recurring veracity of expression we must acknowledge they are all asking for the establishment of a "New Government". When we translate this two-word phrase into a singular concept, we come up with Cenocracy. It is little different than using the singular word "Democracy" to denote the two-word phrase of "people rule" though it may be literally taken to explicate the longer phrase of "rule by the people."
However, I have been encountering otherwise articulate people having some difficulty pronouncing the word "Cenocracy". Whereas there is a "C", they are replacing it with a "K", so let me walk others through the pronunciation:
And there you have it. Cenocracy. Instead of having a "Demo" (as in a superficial Demonstration or a many-generations removed facsimile) of a government, we can move on to the real, the "Actual Democracy" by adopting a Cenocracy. The "Demo" that has been displayed for centuries as if it were a product being sold by carpet-bagging hucksters, needs to have its snake oil remedies replaced with an honest functionality. All those in favor, say CENOCRACY!
Using the word "Cenocracy" does not mean you advocate everything being brought up on the Cenocracy.org site. Similarly, you may use the word "Democracy" in conversation but this doesn't mean you agree with the formula being practiced. It's alright to use the word "Cenocracy" in reference to the desire for a 'New Government' without having to adopt all the ideas being discussed at this site. Coined words are a part of the process for developing a new vision requiring a new vocabulary so that others may see differences more clearly.
Those of us writing with the intent of stirring public opinion to adopt the notion of a Cenocracy, can no expect someone else to take the lead and draw a line in the sand against the prevailing phoney democratic governments. We are at point... to use a military term to describe the vanguard of a mission being undertaken. Millions of people may well feel as we do but they do not know that we exist. Those of us providing a forum for a few to vent their views must acknowledge that this recipe of public expression is not a nationally recognized forum for discussing social issues which have any legal standing with respect to creating laws. And those of us providing one or another topics to be voted on must accept the realization that the vote has no bearing with respect to altering laws. All of us have got to establish a joint dialogue of speaking in unison. If you want to be recognized for your views and efforts, that is fine, but all of us must move beyond our personalizations and develop a concerted effort to move upward, outward and forward together.
All our web pages amount to little more than pissing on a fire hydrant to mark some imagined territory of internet discussion and viability. The desire to establish a Cenocracy does not belong to you, or to me, but to everyone. Our message to the public and those in Authority must be clear and unequivocal. We do want a mob of people protesting individual interests which are not concentrated into a singular effort by which those individual interests can be addressed and have legalized political merit, should they become adopted by way of a nationalized referendum process owned and operated by the public that has full legal authority to draft laws. It is senseless for a mob of people to be marching in protest and yet the public is left in the void while seeking some centralized theme to focus on in order to be supportive thereof. All of us must speak together in unison. We have got to stop pissing on personalized fire hydrants or humping the leg of some numinous passer-by philosophy. I am not trying to be vulgar, but universally communicative with expressions most people will be able to easily visualize and correlate to an exercised human effort. We must work together and establish a singularly focused dialogue, despite all the rough edges to be encountered in our initial fledgling attempts to get off the ground.
The variety of web pages espousing views against this, that and another perceived wrong or injustice and thus providing a reason (or at least some presumed viable excuse) for developing an action (typically in the opposite direction but is nonetheless felt to be better), yet whose architecture may or may not be clearly outlined... are often being conducted as a type of personalized popularity campaign. Such web pages want more readership as if quantity is to be correlated with quality and thus produce, unintentionally, the fomenting of a mobacratic orientation where those involved can recognize themselves with a superficial labels such as being one of the 99%, as if it were some emblematic patch of distinction to be flown as a flag, worn as a shoulder patch, or used as a three-symboled identification card.
These otherwise well-meaning web pages advancing themselves as a would-be public forum for airing opinions about perceived unfairness, without having to say it, are treating the public as if it were a herd of semi-domesticated animals that they are trying to stampeded into a large protest that they can claim credit for... and possibly use as a tool to make social changes as they think they should be... yet they themselves don't have to participate in the front-line trenches with everyone else and suffer the possible consequences of direct confrontation with authority. If need be, they want others to be sprayed with water, gassed, beaten, or arrested, while they remain safe and sound at a distance like some general giving commands to those fighting hundreds or thousands of miles away.
The usage of a website which provides for revealing multiple social issues is like a soda-dispensing machine or a dine-in restaurant featuring a smorgasbord of different food-stuffs to whet a variety of appetites in order to attract multiple perspectives to acquire a larger quantity of readers... but not necessarily a broader quality in order to create the mood for a protest to begin in unison. For example, the stampede of protests in the occupy movement, though many of the participants were sincerely interested in bringing about progressive social changes; others acted more like animals having drank from the same Adbusters pool laced with loco-weed.
Locoweed: any of several species of poisonous plants of the genera Astragalus and Oxytropis, in the pea family (Fabaceae), native to the prairies of north central and western North America. Locoweeds pose a danger to livestock, horses, and other grazing animals, because they contain a toxin that affects:
- muscle control,
- frenzied behaviour,
- impaired vision,
- and sometimes death.
Most locoweeds, however, are unpalatable to livestock and are eaten only when other forage is unavailable. The level of toxicity appears to depend on soil conditions; decaying locoweeds release toxins sometimes taken up by otherwise harmless forage crops. (Locoweed article. (2013). Encyclopædia Britannica Ultimate Reference Suite.)
The above list of symptoms seems not only to reflect many of those in authoritative positions, but some protest efforts as well. The "forage" is metaphorically aligned with ideas. Hence, when no definitive, collaborative effort (by way of a focuse perspective) is available, the human herd ruminates on whatever is nearby.
It is beround credulity for anyone wanting to take credit for creating a dis-joint-ed political effort promoted by what appears to many in the public as different groups of people having passed around the same Marijuana cigarette or pipe while listening to the old Beatles song about having a Revolution. It is time for those advocating a Revolution to stand at the front line with their own banner.
The following is but one expressed banner:
Some authors feel obliged to express their humility through honesty. This being said, they would like readers to be aware that their ideas about the development of a Cenocratic government is a work-in-progress. They freely admit they make mistakes and revise their ideas from time to time... and that they are not perfect... but are seeking to per-fect a Cenocratic Ideal. While there are a few who will no doubt view Cenocracy as reverently as those seeking to per-fect a Christian Ideal, or an Islam Ideal, or a Buddhist Ideal, or a Bahai Ideal, or a Judaic Ideal, or a Latter-Day Saint Ideal, or a Democratic Ideal, or a Socialism Ideal, or an Economic Ideal,... etc., others will come to acknowledge it as a commonly adopted philosophical perspective. There are some who have already begun to refer to themselves as Cenocrats and have made note of such on their personal pages such as Facebook. In other venues they may well refer to themselves with a "We The People" identity. For one reason or another, their minds are already geared for an upcoming future... that they know is needed and must be realized if humanity is to prosper beyond its many present inequalities perpetrated by so many so-called Authoritative Ideals advanced in present Business, Government and Religious cultures that treat the public as a dues- paying, on-call or cue-card "participating" audience whose own collective voice is minimized in terms of self-representation and maximized for those whose practiced authority is much like a puppeteer who threatens the public as if We The People are a puppet whose sole purpose for existence is to suffer for them” or else they will:
...That is, if we the puppet-people don't refrain from seeking to Declare a Greater Independence which provides for an actual parity in a fair redistribution of Equality, Justice and Liberty... as well as socio-political power, instead of keeping us bound to insecurities derived from perpetrated fears of which many are contrived-into-actuality so as to promote further dependency on them for everything they care to promote as being necessary and needed so as to ensure their sovereignty over the people.
*More than a few think that businesses all too often migrate towards a type of pure, no holds barred Capitalistic perspective which primarily evinces a collective orientation towards fulfilling motives of insatiable greed... instead of retaining a centralized Humanistic goal which may have helped to initiate the objectives of the business in the first place and thus prefer to use the felonious word "extortion" instead of its socially deprecated counter-part known as "exploitation"... with respect to those efforts; and pejoratively denoted as tactics of manipulation which are used to get the public to purchase their respective product(s) affixed with a self-promoting ideology.
This too is true for Congressional legislation, Supreme Court adjudication, and the wielding of Executive 'power' which, by an antiquated Constitutional design, engage in an anti-trust (we can't trust them) monopolization against The Right Of The People To DIRECTLY Participate In Their Own Governance by way of a Cenocracy (New Government) which provides for a Peoples Legislative Branch and a fully functional, non-hoop jumping process of Referendum that presently requires the usage of some politically degenerate signatory requirement designed as an obstacle, by way of a politicized rationality, in order to obfuscate an effective "Will of the People" social governance formula.
A "Representative" form of government as presently practiced permits the people to INDIRECTLY participate in their own governance... thus (metaphorical speaking), exhibits the practice of a shadow, echo, and meta-physical government which frequently contours the Will of The People through a prism of distortion and leads society into a state of greater dysfunctionality which has a reverberating influence on other cultures to sometimes mimic a like-minded caricature of neurosis. Such a state of affairs is unconscionable and must be remedied... peacefully or otherwise. Make no mistake. We are on the path towards a Revolution. Viva La Cenocratic Revolution!
Historians should likewise make at least some marginalia comment of these earliest of beginnings as a reference for those who will have a different sense of social self-governing perspicuity in the future. Historians of the future will want to know which Historians of the past were aware of the beginning of a new future that, when viewed retrospectively from ages hence, will be a realized present, and the present we know of today will be a past that none may refer to as the "good old days" that used to, at least sentimentally, play out in colloquial conversations a few decades ago, but is remarkably absent from various forms of dialogue (print, television, radio...) in these "teenage" (2013, 2014, 2015, etc...) years of the 21st Century. Such comments are not an expression of a delusive grandeur (delusion of grandeur), but of Cenocracy's genealogy in-the-making. Imagine if the people in the past had the foresight for keeping absolutely accurate and honest records of everyone that was ever born and to whom they are actually linked by biology, ideology and sociology.***
It will be of interest to see what entire family, business or religious group is the first to refer to themselves as Cenocrats. And because California often takes the lead (aside from New York and places in Europe) in portraying progressive ideas, it will be of further intrigue to see which State will be the first to define itself, or be defined by others such as pollsters, journalists or political scientists; not as the flavor of some Democratic, Republican or Independent majority whose goal is to replace one politician for another, but as a (the 1st) Cenocratic Majority whose goal is to promote, establish and maintain a New Government design on behalf of the people and not some politician who wants a chance to role play in a system of governance which exercises an anti-trust (we can't trust them) monopoly of socio-political power against (over) the people. If politicians were actually focused on Representing the people, they would be supporting a Cenocratic Ideal. A Cenocracy not only provides the people with a soap box, a pulpit, and a lectern, but an actual means to make their collective will the law of the land without their ideas being mangled by the will of those whose ulterior motives frequently exhibit a self-promotion instead of promoting the actual collective will of the people. The following are examples of the "1st Cenocratic Majority" idea displayed in a t-shirt format:
Leonardo Da Vinci practiced a simplistic form of this 'use of a code' by
indulging in what has been described as "mirror writing" or "backwards writing"
(writing backwards), as a means of concealment, and not necessarily revelation,
though it is also now realized as an insight into how his mind worked at a given
time and place of his life... he was far ahead of his time in multiple respects.
Cenocracy is like this because it represents an historically greater ideal of
Equality, Justice and Liberty in not only a redistribution of wealth, but a
redistribution of socio-political power. Present governing structures (business,
government, religion) prefer that the public remains naive enough to buy into their
respective "products". They intentionally want to keep the public in a state of
addiction, of dependency, of insecurity.
We need a new form of governance which permits, encourages and requires the public to develop its intelligence, insight, creativity, compassion, originality, talents, courage and yes, even genius. The public needs its own collectively-individualized voice which is Constitutionally mandated as THE governing legislative branch of their government, and not some sham derivative by way of vicarious Representation. Present governing systems have been developed and maintained like some undergraduate rats-in-a-maze (or social labyrinth) psychology test engaged in by students who repeatedly flunk and repeat the course because they fail to grasp the essential fact that it is they who are being tested by those who themselves fail to move beyond their own contrived nonsense being used as a means of verification and validation; for perpetuation of sentimentalized fictions deluded into a reality formulated into a tradition to be respected... because it assists them in exercising self-centered ulterior motives which praises the people in public but damns them in private as an irrelevance set against a graduated scale of personalized need to achieve personal goals and if the public gets hurt in the process, such suffering is obligingly washed off their hands by defining the action as collateral damage. Indeed, it is time for us to move beyond a Democracy to a Cenocracy.
