WEALTH AND MONEY PART XXI: THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF THE PEOPLE OF PLANET EARTH
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people – the people of Planet Earth – to dissolve the economic manipulations and predations which have divided us, and to assume our intellectual and ethical responsibility to protect the ongoing integrity of Spaceship Earth for ourselves and our posterity, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to their actions.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator and the Universe with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the equitable and mutually beneficial sharing of planet Earth’s generously abundant physical resources and cosmic energy income. That to secure these rights, economic systems must be instituted among men, designed to justly provide for all of the present and future passengers aboard planet Earth. That whenever any form of economic system becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new economic systems, laying the foundations on such principles and organizing the powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness, and that of generations to come. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that economic systems long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute oligarchic, plutocratic, and corporate despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such economic systems, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of the people of planet Earth; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their existing economic systems. The history of the present oligarchic, plutocratic, and corporate exploiters is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over the people of planet Earth. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
The Exploiters, through fraud, corruption, financial manipulation and predation, have transferred the claim to planet Earth’s wealth, money, to themselves to such an extent that the richest 1% now “own” as much as the bottom 99% of all people, thus making it impossible to preserve the operational integrity of Spaceship Earth or use its generously adequate resources and cosmic energy income for the mutual benefit of all humanity.
The Exploiters, through fraudulent and corrupt banking and financial practices, have manipulated planet Earth’s existing, manmade monetary systems to deliberately indebt nations and peoples around the globe, thus placing them in endless bondage to the Exploiters while at the same time destroying the unalienable rights of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the equitable and mutually beneficial sharing of Spaceship Earth’s resources for billions of her passengers.
The Exploiters, using their fraudulent and corrupt control of planet Earth’s manmade monies, have purchased the politicians of all nations who then write the laws to favor the Exploiters and further impoverish and enslave, through debt bondage, the people of planet Earth.
The Exploiters, through their control of national secret service agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency in the U.S.A. or through the use of paid mercenaries, have regularly had democratically elected officials of nations around the world who do not favor the Exploiter’s goal of absolute tyranny over the people of plant Earth, assassinated or otherwise politically and financially destroyed. This has been especially true in Central and South America, the Middle East, and Africa.
The Exploiters, through their financial control of nations’ politicians – and thus nations’ militaries and secret service agencies – have regularly conducted clandestine or preemptive wars on any people of planet Earth who do not bow to the Exploiters goals of complete bondage and control. The result has been the needless and merciless impoverishment, displacement, and death of millions of people around planet Earth.
The Exploiters, through their financial control of the planet’s media, have spread fear and hatred to divide and conquer the people of planet Earth. The Exploiters have created and spread terrorism around the planet as a tool to destroy legitimate national governments and populations which do not support the Exploiters’ goals of total predation.
The Exploiters, in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence, continue the destruction of planet Earth’s climate and living environment in their continued pursuit of selfish gain through the control and sale of fossil fuels. The Exploiters undermine in all ways possible the expanded use of now well proven alternative energies to replace the use of polluting fossil fuels, thus willing risking the future of the people of planet Earth for short term profit.
The Exploiters, in their endless and irrational drive for ever more money and power, encourage a further multitude of predations and injuries on the people of planet Earth. Among these are: the use of child and slave labor, dangerous working conditions, the sale of women and children as sex objects and slaves, death by lack of public healthcare for all, death caused by pharmaceutical monopoly, death from starvation caused by billionaire hedge fund food price speculation, death by urban lead water pipes in the face billionaire sports coliseums, monetizing of our children through the profit making privatization of public education, replacement of democratic national laws by corporate tribunals, and the profit exploiting privatization of public functions and assets.
The Exploiters, in their insatiable and sociopathic drive for ever more money and power, now foment nuclear war between the planet’s major military powers, thus placing at risk any future whatsoever for the people of planet Earth.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. Economic systems, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a predator and a parasite, are unfit to control and direct the true wealth of the people of planet earth.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our current economic Exploiters. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their financial manipulation to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our impoverishment and suffering. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, enemies of the people of planet Earth, but friends if they will but endeavor for the common good.
We, therefore, the people of planet Earth, in unity for the good of all, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world and the Universe for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of this planet, solemnly publish and declare, that these united peoples are, and of right ought to be free of abusive and predatory economic systems; that they are absolved from all allegiance to abusive and predatory economic systems, and that all fraudulently and corruptly created debt and debt bondage ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free, thoughtful, and caring humans, they have full power to replace destructive and exploitive economic systems, and to do all other acts and things which concerned people of integrity may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence and the Universe, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
