When placed into a modern context, there are many historical speeches, respectful acknowledgements on commemorative plaques, quotes and contemporary expressions which ring true for the present Cenocratic Movement. Some I have left almost intact, while others were added to because our modern context and experiences deserves an updated model:
We have, ourselves, full confidence that if all do their duty, in as much as it is a social movement for those of us living today, it is for all future generations of children to come; if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are trying to be made at the present, we, each and all common citizen, shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our right to be free, to ride out the storm of war... whatever shape it may take, by whatever insidious form of instigation made to thwart our efforts; and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.
At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of those who strive for a Cenocracy. That is the will of the people who shall inhabit the dawning of a new Nation, a new Earth, a new purpose for a better United humanity.
The Peoples of the world, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death, if necessary, their native toil, their native equanimity, their native desire for a truer peoples government; aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their mind, heart and soul.
Even though large tracts of Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas have fallen or may fall into the grip of false social self-governance and all the odious apparatus of self-centered Corporate, Religious, and Government rule, we shall not flag, flinch or fail.
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight as no people seeking liberation have ever fought before:
We shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this or any nation or a large part of it were subjugated and starving; then our comrades beyond our borders, beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the emerging Cenocratic breed, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the Dawning Age of a New and more Just World, with all its power and might, will step forth to assert its historical place in the rescue and liberation of us all from the superstitious traditions of old that continue to enslave us.
Hence, our fight is a...
Long years ago we made a tryst with a Cenocratic destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially since the future generations will encounter what we have as yet left undone in our pursuit of a truer freedom. At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, Cenocracy will awaken to life and freedom.
A moment comes which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old into the new, then an age ends, and when the soul of a people, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to the inherent principles of Cenocracy and to the still larger cause of humanity. At the dawn of history Cenocracy started on its unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with its striving and the grandeur of its successes and its diminishments. Through good and ill fortune alike Cenocracy has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which give it strength. We begin anew today a period of promise as Cenocracy discovers itself again.
The achievement we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, to the greater triumphs and achievements that await us. It is with confidence, tempered by humility which make us forthrightly claim that we are brave and wise enough to grasp this opportunity and accept the challenge of our Cenocratic future. Freedom and power bring responsibility. It is a responsibility which rests upon this generation and those that follow, each as an individual representative of the sovereign peoples of humanity. Before the birth of freedom we have endured all the pains of labour and our hearts are heavy with the memory of this sorrow. Some of those pains continue even now.
Nevertheless, the past is over and it is a Cenocratic future that beckons to us now. That future is not one of ease or resting but of incessant striving so that we might fulfill the pledges we have so often taken and the one we shall take today. The service of a Cenocracy means the service of the millions who suffer. It means the ending of Communism's poverty, Socialism's ignorance and Democracy's disease and the inequality of opportunity. The ambition of the greatest people of our generation has been to wipe every tear from every eye. Though such sincere efforts may be beyond us at this moment in history, it is a goal for which we strive to achieve so long as there are tears and suffering; our work will not be over. And so we have to labour and to work, and work hard, to give reality to our dreams. Those dreams are for a true Cenocracy in our country, but they are also for the world, for all the nations and peoples are too closely knit together today for any one of them to imagine that it can live apart.
Peace has been said to be indivisible, so is freedom, so is prosperity now, and so also is disaster in this one world that can no longer be split into isolated fragments. To the people in pursuit of a Cenocracy whose representatives we are, we make appeal for all to join us with faith and confidence in this great adventure. This is no time for petty and destructive criticism, no time for ill-will or blaming. We have to build the noble mansion of a Cenocracy where all children may dwell with not just Communistic imaginings of Equality, Socialistic impressions of Fraternity, nor the illusions of freedom presented by Democratic Liberty." These three "I's" (Imaginings, Impressions, Illusions) are retrogressions of ego-centricity for which humanity must venture forth from in order to reach for an existence beyond its traditional grasp of an existing reality that can only be realized though a social self-governance called Cenocracy.
Twenty-score and sixty years ago, (in Lincoln's time it was four score and seven years ago... which was 87 years), our ancestors brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all people are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great global Cenocratic war, testing whether this or that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on but one of many a great battle fields 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 a Cenocracy 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, women and children living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world must take note, and long remember, what we say here, and never forget what they have done here. It is for us the living, rather, to be here dedicated to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to dedicate ourselves to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that Cenocratic 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 all nations, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that a true Cenocratic government of ALL the people, by ALL the people, for ALL the people, shall not perish from the earth.
I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for Cenocratic freedom in the history of all nations.
Five score and fifty years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of citizens who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. But 250 years later, citizens throughout the world still remain enslaved. Two hundred and fifty years later, countless lives are still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. Two hundred and fifty years later, countless citizens live on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. Two hundred and fifty years later, citizens still languish in the corners of every society and find themselves exiled in their own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every citizen was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all people - yes, black, yellow, red, brown as well as white - would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that every nation on Earth has defaulted on these tenants of a promissory note insofar as citizens with an altruistic compassion for others are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, every nation has given countless citizens a bad check, a check that has come back marked "insufficient funds."
But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of every nation. And so we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and security of justice. We have also come to his hallowed spot to remind every nation of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of a Cenocracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of human justice. Now is the time to lift all nations from the quicksands of injustice to the solid rock of human-hood. Now is the time to make a Cenocratic justice a reality for all of God's children.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the citizenry's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Today is not an end but a beginning. Those who hoped that the people need to blow off steam and will be content thereafter will have a rude awakening if nations of this planet return to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in any corner of the globe until every citizen is granted their full, Congressionally binding Bill-of-Rights mandated Cenocratic citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of all nations until the bright day of Cenocratic justice emerges.
But there is something that must be said to the people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of Cenocratic justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for Cenocratic freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence unless we are left with no recourse but to do otherwise to preserve our freedom, our liberty, our justice. Again and again we must make every effort to rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soulful force unless we are forced to do otherwise. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the world's struggling communities must not lead us to a distrust of all those who do not share with us our ideals, word for word, for many of them, as evidenced by their presence and support in our efforts, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We must acknowledge that we cannot walk alone. For each must step to the Cenocratically piped drummer as they hear it.
And as we walk individually or with others, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead though there have been and may still be many divergent paths as well as crossroads in our pursuit of a Cenocracy. Yet we cannot turn back because the children of today and those generations in the womb of a still-to-come tomorrow urge us ever forward. Unbelievable as it may sound, there are those who ask the devotees of human rights, "When will you be satisfied?" And they, incredulously, are taken aback when we reply that we can never be satisfied as long as citizens of the world remain victim to unspeakable horrors of policed brutality and negligibly dismissed as a swatted insect nuisance when seeking the most basic of human rights. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, fatigued by the heavy burdens of life's sundry travels, cannot gain suitable housing in the nations we are forced by others' laws to support. We cannot be satisfied as long as our most necessary rights are traditioned into a structure of enforced compliance to ridiculously defined expectations such that the basic social mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one or from a lower class to a middle class poverty. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by rules, regulations, laws and signs indicating "for certain people only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a citizen in one locale cannot freely exercise their vote without fear of intimidation, coercion or manipulation and a person in another locale believes their vote will have no bearing on an election's outcome; due to circumstances that make them believe they have nothing for which to vote because that which is being presented does not represent the actual views of the public, or that they must vote for the lesser of two or more evils. No, no we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until Cenocratic justice rolls down like waters and Cenocratic righteousness like a mighty stream.
We are not unmindful that many of you have come to accept the views of a Cenocracy by way of enduring great trials and tribulations. Some of you no doubt will have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you will come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of policed brutality. You are veterans of suffering that, on numerous occasions required creative forms of endurance. Heaven knows it is very difficult indeed to ask that you continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. And Heaven knows it requires a reserve of strength and courage beyond that which most expect of themselves on a day-to-day basis. Yet yours is the quest of the uncommon which precipitates the need for a far greater patience in Perseverance.
If you must, Go back to Mexico, Go back to China or any other Asian country, go back to Africa, go back to South America, go back to Russia, go back to France or any other European Country, go back to the slums and ghettos of any city, of any state, knowing that somehow this situation can, must and will be changed.
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. Let us say to our friends and foes alike- so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, let us forever have a Cenocratic dream and force it into reality. For it is a dream deeply rooted in the sovereign dream of global human rights.
Let us have a dream that one day all nations will rise up and live out the true meaning of the creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal."
Let us have a dream that one day on the red heals of conflict the peoples of former slaves and the peoples of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of human-hood.
Let us have a dream that one day the state of present Humanity, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into a Cenocratic oasis of freedom and justice.
Let us have a dream that all children will one day live in a world where they will not be judged by the various colors of prejudice but by the content of their character.
Let us have a Cenocratic dream today and forever even when it becomes the only reality.
Let us have a dream that one day, all the world's vicious prejudices, sustained by present governing structures with its various representatives that pay mere lip service to actual change, but whose barred teeth are dripping with the words of inter-position and nullification - one day everywhere the children of all nations will join hands in a common Cenocratic unification.
Let us have a Cenocratic dream today and forever even when it becomes the only reality.
Let us have a dream that one day every valley and meadow shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the true peace shall be revealed and all peoples, all living things shall experience it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith we must pursue the earnestness of our lives with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a message of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of all nations into a beautiful symphony of humanity-hood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for Cenocratic freedom together, ...knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day, this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning "Our Earth 'tis of thee, sweet lands of liberty, of thee I sing. Lands where our family members have died, lands of all Pilgrims pride, from every shore, desert, valley, field, forest, jungle and mountainside, let Cenocracy's freedom ring!"
And if any people are to claim themselves as a great nation, let this become true for all peoples everywhere. And so let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of every human thought. Let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the mighty mountains of every human endeavor. Let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the heightening steps of human purpose.
Let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the snow-capped brow of human wisdom. Let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of human creativity, originality of thought, and the true genius of all peoples.
But not only that; let Cenocracy's freedom ring from the often implacable Stone Mountains of human tradition. Let Cenocracy's ring from the Lookout Mountain of human exploration. Let Cenocracy's freedom ring from every hill and molehill of human enterprise - from every artificial and natural mountainside.
Let Cenocracy's freedom ring. And when this happens, and when we allow Cenocracy's freedom to ring - when we let it ring from every makeshift hovel and itinerant campsite, from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, from every country and every continent, we will be able to speed up that day: when all of God's children will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last to have our Cenocracy!"
"A Cenocratic Inaugural"
John F. Kennedy
We observe today not a Cenocratic victory but a celebration of freedom-- symbolizing an end as well as a beginning--signifying renewal as well as change. For we have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forbears prescribed more than two and a half centuries ago.
The world is very different now. For humanity holds in its mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of poverty and all forms of life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebearers fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of all living things come not from the generosity of the State but from the hand of God.
We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of previous revolutions. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Cenocrats--born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage--and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those rights for which all nations must firmly practice respectfully, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of a Cenocratic justice, fraternity, freedom, and liberty.
This much we pledge--and more.
To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends and to our new allies a likewise bond if they will remain steadfast in their resolve to share in our Cenocratic quest. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do--for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder by those that would seek to undermine our concerted efforts.
To those new states whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of traditional colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more sinister form of iron tyranny. While We may not always expect to find them supporting our view, we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom--and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the predatory tiger ended up inside when its aggressive gains turned to arrogance or desperation.
To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required--not because others may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is the right thing to do. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it should not save the few who are rich.
To our Cenocratic kinship beyond our borders, we offer a special pledge-- to convert our good words into good deeds--in a new alliance for progress--to assist all peoples in casting off the inter-linked chains of poverty, injustice and slavery. But this intended peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the world. And let every other power know that this Cenocratic generation intends to assist the people in becoming the master of its own house.
To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, once believed as our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far out-paced the instruments of peace, we would like to renew our pledge of support only if it supports the Cenocratic Cause of all peoples--to prevent these Nations from becoming merely a forum for invective--to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak-- and to enlarge the area in which a Congressionally binding Bill-of-Rights mandated Cenocratic writ may run.
Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer a pledge of our sincere commitment to further our request that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the warming glow of science exploration, discovery and development become overwhelmed by the dark powers of destruction; that could be unleashed by fanatics who desire nothing more than to engulf all humanity in planned or accidental ventures of annihilation by creating conditions by which their attempts at self-fulfilling prophecies become semblances of a self-centered reality that convinces an unwary public to accede to falsehoods.
But we dare not tempt them with words or deeds that might be interpreted as a weakness. For only when they come to believe that our armaments are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will, in growing wisdom, prefer, as we do, that they should never be employed. For such weaponry are beasts without a conscience and must, at the very least, remain encaged.
But neither can any nation take comfort from the present course--since all are over-burdened by the cost of modern weapons, and all are rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom; yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of humankind's final war.
So let us begin anew--remembering that civility, compassion and caution are not signs of weakness, though sincerity of and by itself is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear nor fear to negotiate with civility, compassion and caution.
Let all of us explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.
Let all of us, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of armaments---and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.
Let all of us seek to invoke the wonders and possibilities of science instead of its torments and terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce for the prosperity of all instead of the greed of a few.
Let all of us unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah--to "undo the heavy burdens . . . (and) let the oppressed go free."
And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let all of us join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the just are strong and the weak secure and the search for a greater definition of peace is preserved.
All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.
In our hands, my fellow Cenocrats, rests the final success or failure of our course. Within the border of every country, upon its founding, summons a generation to give testimony to its Cenocratic loyalty. The graves of the young who previously answered the call to service, surround the globe.
Now the trumpet summons us again--not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need-- not as a call to battle, though embattled we are-- but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation"--a struggle against the common enemies of humanity: tyranny, poverty, greed, power, persecution, injustice, slavery, disease and war itself.
We must forge against these and other enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all humankind. For the Grand Cenocratic task we ask all peoples to join us in this historic effort.
In the long history of the world, only a few generations have taken upon themselves the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. We must never shrink from this responsibility--but nor should we welcome it as if it were an inevitability wrought by human impulsiveness. We must pledge ourselves against the real perpetrators of anti-Cenocracy.
Although there are some who would exchange places with someone else in another generation, such as in the belief that a single act could improve the outcome for future humanity, many of us prefer to remain in the time and place they were born. Their energy, their faith, their devotion which they bring to this Cenocratic endeavor will light our cause and all who serve it--and the glow from that fire can truly light the world for all peoples.
And so, to my fellow Cenocrats I say: ask not what Cenocracy can do for you---ask what you can do for Cenocracy and what we together can do for the freedom, justice and liberty of humanity. Finally, whether you think of yourself as a citizen of one country or a citizen of the world, let each ask of themselves to exhibit the same high standards of strength and sacrifice that they ask of others. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the planet we love, asking for God's blessing and help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own in establishing our Cenocratic Freedoms!
You did not bear the shame, disgrace and infamy.
You fought back as only men and women of conscience can.
You gave the great, ...Forever tireless ...Sign of change.
Sacrificing your glowing life:
For Cenocratic Freedom, Justice, and Honor.
Cenocracy: the final frontier.
These are the efforts of the Cenocratic Enterprise.
Its life-long mission:
(1) to explore the development of a better world,
(2) to seek out a better life for all in enhanced civilizations,
(3) and to boldly go where humanity has not gone before.
Cenocrats will not be silent!
Cenocracy is your bad conscience!
The Cenocratic Rose will not leave you in peace!
(Adapted from concluding phrase of leaflet # 4, which became the motto of the resistance.)
Adapted from the first leaflet:
Isn't it true that every honest person is ashamed of their government these days? Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes— crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure— reach the light of day?
Adapted from the second leaflet:
Why do people behave so apathetically in the face of all these abominable crimes, crimes so unworthy of the human race? ... The people slumber on in their dull, stupid sleep and encourage these government and corporate criminals.... The people must evidence not only sympathy; no, much more: a sense of complicity in guilt.... For through their apathetic behaviour they give these evil entities the opportunity to act as they do.... the indolent people are to blame for the fact that it came about at all! Each person wants to be exonerated ....But they cannot be exonerated; they are guilty, guilty, guilty!... now that we have recognized the governments and so many corporations for what they are, it must be the sole and first duty, the holiest duty of every person to destroy these beasts.
Adapted from the third leaflet:
...why do you allow these governments and corporations who are in power to rob you step by step, openly and in secret, of one domain of your rights after another, until one day nothing, nothing at all will be left but a mechanised state system presided over by criminals, drunks and psycho-pathic personalities? Is your spirit already so crushed by abuse that you forget it is your right - or rather, your moral duty - to eliminate this system?
