1787 Occupy Manifesto

Every word of this document – except those between [ ] – is taken from the Antifederalist Papers written and published between 1787-1789 to protest the architecture of the current dysfunctional government.

(Antifederalist No. 4 – 1788) No government can flourish unless it be founded on the affection of the people. (Antifederalist No. 26 -1788) There are many among you that will not be led by the nose by rich men, and would scorn a bribe. Rich men can live easy under any government, be it ever so tyrannical.

Be wise, be virtuous, and catch the precious moment as it passes, to refuse this [dysfunctional] federal government, and extricate yourselves and posterity from tyranny, oppression, aristocratical or monarchical government.

We The People Initiative 

This proposal does not dictate how the ‘The People’s Act’ and ‘Amendment XXVIII’ should read but rather suggests how the demands and the concerns of protesters can be written and passed into law.

‘We the People of the United States of America’
in order to form a more perfect union. . .

– Initiative to form a consensus of our collective interests that distils the aims and specific demands of ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests into two pieces of legislation designed for submission to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate for two separate up-or-down votes.

‘The People’s Act’ Legislative Item #1
– a piece of legislation comprised of comprehensive social-economic reforms of the political process, with an emphasis on the role and function of money in our political system and process (elections).

‘Amendment XXVIII’ Legislative Item #2
– a piece of legislation that addresses and redresses social justice issues, with an emphasis on equality, equity and rights. (Read More . . .)

Words of Wisdom: “IT” is what you are when you are young. Your youth mistakes certainty of the few things that you think you know for knowledge of things that it takes a life time to understand. With time and a few life experiences “IT” becomes the thing you pursue to give your life meaning. Somewhere along the way of having or getting “IT” you ask yourself, ‘Is this “IT”? Panic sets in when you realize that “IT” is your life. Fear and insecurity is that feeling you get when “IT” has not been worth a life time.
