Dogs and Tribal Responsibility

Dogs are a valuable asset for New Tribes. Just as they were for Old Tribes. The usual Loyalty of Dogs, for their Humans, has a wonderful psychological effect on the Humans. Not only is this needed, but it provides a valuable reminder and lesson about this important virtue. Our Dogs remind Us of the value of the virtue of Loyalty.

But Dogs do not always express Loyalty and Love for other Humans and for other Dogs. The interactions between them has to be watched and controlled, for the sake of all concerned. This is part of the social responsibility that comes with being part of smaller, close knit, tribal constructs.

It is possible to achieve the goal of all the Dogs and all the Humans getting along in a high degree of harmony and Peace. But this requires patient diligence by the Humans, until the bonding between all concerned is accomplished. The “bonding” would be experienced as the Dogs not fighting each other and not biting the Humans. This would be very hard to do. Even Wolf Packs fight amongst themselves. But this is a worthy goal that is possible to achieve with the right sustained effort in the training of the Dogs and the Humans. Intense training can accomplish this. So, it has to be an important goal of the tribe, to make this happen. Everybody has to want it.

Everybody has to be able to see and appreciate the benefits that would result from this superior relationship state.

Some of these “benefits” would be:

(1) A more generally disciplined and controlled social environment, that would be as beneficial for the tribal members as much as for the Dogs.

(2) Quieter, more orderly, camps.

(3) Healthier Dogs and Humans. (Less need to give medical attention and medical resources to the participants in the tribe.

(4) Superior performance, on the part of the Humans and the Dogs, in self defense and hunting.

(5) A Living example of the superior Morals and Values of a Good Heart and Mind People.

(6) An example, that might be emulated, of the positive possibilities of this Ideal kind of relationship between Dog and Human.

(7) A deep satisfaction and pride in all of the above.

But We have to do the Work to reach the benefits.

First We, as Good Heart and Mind Individuals, have to study this possibility.

Then We have to sincerely and “skillfully”, discuss this with everyone else in Our Good Tribe…to try to accomplish a “Consensus” that this should be done…by all who have Dogs.

Thirdly, We would acquire the knowledge and skills that would make this happen. It might be a good idea, here, to go outside the tribe and find the best sources from which to gain this knowledge and learn these skills.

Fourth, We should custom design the training We do, to best suit the needs of the tribe.

Fifth, We put what We have learned and developed into daily dedicated practice, that brings Us closer to this worthy Harmony and Peace Promoting Goal.

We should become Masters at Dog Psychology and adept at the best possible relationship between Dogs and Humans.

Some of the things We could do to bring this to pass, would be:

(1) Feed the Dog in the privacy of the Rubber Tire Domicile, or “Pitched Dwelling”. This will serve to cut down on the fighting over food…and the “raiding” that leads to this.

(2) Use the harness and leash! Until the training reaches the desired pinnacle of “Voice Control”.

(3) Carefully select, for Good Companionship, the smartest, most obedient, loyal and Loving, breeds. (Loving of other Dogs as well as Humans.) This selection process involves more than genetics. It also has to do with the Individual Personality of a Dog.

(4) Carefully avoid brining into the tribe certain breeds that have been specifically bred to fight and kill other Dogs (and other kinds of Dogs and Animals) in the “Dog Fighting Arenas”. Actually we should do more than avoid these. We should support all efforts to gently eradicate these breeds, as well as their mean and cruel owners.

So, Good Breed selection plus Good Human Training, followed by Good Dog Training, will result in a boost to In-Tribe Peace and Additional In-Tribe Strengths.

Thoughts From Hugo Grotius

“He knows not how to rule a kingdome, what cannot manage a Province;
nor can he wield a Province, that cannot order a City;
nor can he order a City, that knows not how to regulate a Village;
nor he a village, that cannot guide a Family;
nor can that man Govern well a Family that know not how to Govern himselfe;
neither can any Govern himselfe unless his Reason be Lord, Will and Appetite [over] her Vassals;
nor can Reason rule unless herselfe be ruled by God, and (wholly) be obedient to Him.”

Hugo Grotius 1664

Hugo Grotius seems to have knack for connectivity…to be able to see some places where Our Paths take Us. Reading him backwards (bottom up) especially useful is his identification of the needs for first things first and how these steps lead to greater responsibilities and achievements.

I believe Our Reason is best when it is under the Stewardship and Guidance of GOD. There can be no Better Partnership, or relationship, than that which We can increasingly have with CREATOR. In this relationship We may know Happiness or We may suffer, but We are sure to grow…into that which makes Our Fathers In Havona and in Jerusem, glad that they made Us.

The Living Art of Reason is not an easy thing. It leads Us to uncountable perspectives…endless choices. Choices that result in many mistakes and many successes.

For example, One can perceive ten solutions to a problem, or challenge. Which solution is the best? Hint: The solution that provides the most lasting change for Good, for the most People and their world.

I do pretty well with being ruled by GOD, Reason and self -governance. But I have failed miserably in “Governing Well A Family”. I have sired but not Fathered. I believe I will be given a second chance at this governance skill, in the Morontia Realm.

Meanwhile, while still here on Urth, I fumble and stumble with trying to design and build New Tribe Social Constructs and leave a record of these efforts here and in “Homestead Web Site Providers”…and in hard copy secreted away for possible future discovery and utilization. We’ll see.

Direct Democracy Constitution For The United States Of America

Constitution Of The Direct Democracy United States Of America

(An American Citizen Proposal of a Possibility – written in 2012)
Introduction

Stepping away from the tumultuous currents and turbulence of the mainstream of Life, I have found a quiet pool in which I will make the humble attempt to start building a new ideological fabric from which We can forge a New and Better Nation. I will submit this “work” as I develop its parts.

It is felt and thought, by some American Citizens, that the Second Document, of a Constitution of the United States of America, has gradually become less serviceable to the 99% of the American Populace and should be replaced by a “Better” Document…just as this “Second American Constitution” replaced the “First National Constitution”, or the “Articles Of Confederation”.

One of the main problems of Our Second Constitution, is that much of the “corporate world”, itself a service branch of the “new world order”, has managed to corrupt the office holders of the various branches of American Government and has begun to use Our Government against Us, in its bid to “enslave” Us. Our Second Constitution is not structured to prevent this kind of intrusion upon Our Lives. And this failure to block this encroachments of the “new world order”, seems to have been an intentional act by the “Framers” of Our Constitution and the “Founders” of Our Nation…those high in business and the landed gentry that had their roots in the aristocracy of the “Old World”. They spoke well of “Our New Land Of Opportunity” and its potentials for We The People, but they were really throwing off the last of the monarchial powers of the British Empire and entrenching themselves to, in fact, be the new tyrants of the “New World”. A tyranny not so much as with the use of force, as with the use of political guile and craft. We The People, had “champions” that tried to stand against these builders of a new empire, but they failed to prevent the particular structuring of the Second Constitution, that made it susceptible to manipulation by the wealth and power few.

They used well the words, phrases and concepts that hypnotized the “Common Man” and lulled Us into complacency, that the changes wrought were enough…and that We now had a Democracy. What We didn’t realize then, was, that whatever We had, that seemed like Democracy, was really only a small beginning step toward True Democracy. A True Democracy Of The People, For The People and BY The People. We should have understood this and made changes for the Better a long time ago. But most of Us have been far too busy imitating the self serving elitist few…to become like them. We are NOT The American People and Nation We should be.

But, in all fairness to the “Founders” and “Framers” and the Common Citizen of those hard times, We just about began, in this weak Democratic beginning, almost as good a deal as We could fashion for then. Now, two hundred years and counting later and having won additional steps toward the True Goal of America, the time has come to become More and Better and much closer to the Ideal that We are capable of. But We The People have to become stronger, much stronger, to achieve this most worthy goal. We need to become Better at everything We are and do…and We need to develop the courage to do it. We need to continue learning the ways of Good Self Governance. We must continue to become “smarter” in these matters.

This is intended to be a “Better” Social Contract that, as accurately as possible, states Our collective position as a Sovereign People, of Our Sovereign States and Nation, in Our Own Times. The “Second Constitution” hinted, in its “Article V” that such an action and maybe even Revolution, might become something that needs to be done. May all the fingers of such a Revolution be on keyboards and not triggers.

The meaning and application of the term “Betterness”, as it applies to Our Culture, should be decided by a majority vote of WE The People…in a continuous and dedicated process of realizing perceived Ideals, needs, meanings understood and held by The Majority of the American Populace, intentions and “Ideal National Standards” assessments and decisions for “Positive Change”.

We must carefully study where We are at and make decisions about where We Need To Be. What We must become, Why We must become it and Where and When. I assume here, that a strong majority of Us, is not comfortable, or content, with the ways Our Nation has come to practice, in Our Times.

A Sad Note

I pray that I am wrong and am only being influenced by my immediate social surroundings. But, I have the distinct impression that “most” of the American Populace, could care less about Our Nation, beyond what “is in it for them”. America is just a place to take from, without giving anything back. Or at least the Capitalist maxim of “buy low and sell high” is expressed, in Our Communities, as take as much as one can and give back as little as one can. This misrule of Life in America goes all the way up the economic ladder to the 1% millionaire and billionaire class.

Sadly, I am aware that there are those among Us, who care very little, if at all, for anyone but themselves. These are strong willed children who never grew up into social maturity. These are the ones who see The Wise Self Governance Of The Many as “mob rule”. These overly selfish ones fear being under the supervision of “Standards OF Decency” developed by the Caring and Well Educated Majority of Our Nation. We must learn to see this selfish type of Human and prevent their depredations upon the rest of Us. They reveal themselves in the way they do things…in the ways they treat People that they prey on. Basically they take as much as they can and give back as little as they can. This is socially inferior behavior, that leads to unnecessary hardship and suffering. We are learning to know these for what they are and with this knowledge will be increasingly able to protect Ourselves from them.

This impression doesn’t do much for my optimism about the possibilities of “Becoming More and Better” (in the “Golden Rule” and Highest Ideals context), but I am compelled, from somewhere deep in my Personality and Character, to, at least try, to help build momentum for America to become a “Better Nation”. This is “Work”, that from its very Nature, has to be somewhat ahead of its time. In other words, even though I have sadness, I also have Hope in Our Rising.

But, it is not really all this gloomy with me. There are Many Americans who feel that More and Better is needed, for Our Nation. And there is the chance, that this special cadre of Caring True Citizens can help bring the changes, that, as many of Us as possible, will decide is needed, in Our Land. This happens a little at a time, until the day comes that We realize that We ARE THERE! That WE have earned Our Better New Direct Democracy Nation and will never let It become again what it is today.

I am seeing More and More, that specific proposals for “Good Change” is being called for, from several different directions in the strata of Our Society. Some Liberal, Progressive and even Conservative elements are challenging Progressives to make specific recommendations for meaningful change. This article, submitted in a series of parts, is a sincere and radical attempt to do just that.

To me, this “call” is a sign of some readiness to begin serious contemplation about these matters. I really shouldn’t say “begin”. Some of these matters have had attention since the first constitution was written in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1780.

Since there has been much confusion around the original intentions that influenced the text of the second constitution, I would like to try and be much more clear in the intentions and motivations of this proposed one. I will try to “clearly” write the intentions in purple, in each “article”, or part.

For sake of comparison, the text (in blue color) of the “Second Constitution” is sometimes included, followed by the new proposed text in black.

Explanations and suggestions about “New National Standards” and definitions and meanings of terms and words will be in red text.

There will be many additions of text, of new areas for consideration, that the Second Constitution did not address. Technology has made it possible and desirable to include more efforts for national fairness in Our New Social Contract. The “Framers” of the Second Constitution did not have this opportunity, or luxury. This new constitution has much more to deal with, than the previous one, so will be “longer”.

Some things of the Second American National Constitution, will not be changed…or not changed much. Some things will be missing; like the “Electoral College”. But, if We The People want those, in Majority Strength, then, of course, they will be re-included. I expect all of what I submit to be severely “challenged”.

Suggested Preamble for Our Direct Democracy Constitution.
(Somewhat Following the Good form of the Second Constitution.)

The Second American Constitution says:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Our New Constitution might begin with:

We The People, Of The New Direct Democracy United States Of America,

in order to form a Better United Nation out of diverse cultural elements, states and territories,

Will,

Increase the design, application and service, to the Majority of The American People, of Our New Standards Of Justice and Fairness. Law will serve the poor with equal vigor, as the wealthy and powerful.

Inspire and support the tranquility and peace, of all Our Law Abiding Citizens, within the Families, Communities, Counties and States of Our Sovereign Territories.

Provide for Our Sovereign National Defense without, as much as possible, taking military force or economic intimidation to the rest of the world.

Promote the well being of each and every American Citizen that embraces and practices, in their lives, the “Golden Rule”, and demonstrates their dedication to their own Good Citizenship and the General Well Fare of the other Good Citizens of the American Nation. This application of Individual and Collective “Good Heart and Mind”, will be the most important consideration in the establishment of the Laws and Policies of Our Land. Wisdom, logic, reason and practicality, will also have a role in this great national undertaking.

Secure the Blessings of Liberty, in all the Balanced ways that do not go “too far”, to Ourselves and Our Progeny and the Other Citizens and Their Progeny. Our Liberty does not intrude upon the Liberty quest of Other Nations and Peoples. There will be some correction of past transgressions.

Will become a Better People, more in harmony with and more expressive of Our Highest Ideals, in a new Evolution toward what We understand about the expectations, for Us, of Our Creator.

Take less and reward Giving More.

Include, in the following determinations of Our New Commitment, Our Highest Standards, for Our Enlightened Guidance in this American Sacred Quest for Our Government Of The People, For The People and BY The People.

Establish this well-intentioned Social Contract and Lawful Constitution FOR Our Direct Democracy United States Of America and dedicate Ourselves to the Enlightened enforcement of its declarations.

We ARE The Community. We ARE The State. We ARE The American Nation!

Note 1: Here the Highest American Standard, that We can develop, is for the inclusion of as many Good Hearts and Minds as possible, in a dynamic, unending process of increasing self governance of, for and BY The People. This standard begins with the use of Our Nation’s Finest Minds of Altruistic Personality and Character. We will develop tests to discover who these first beginning Citizen Guides are and then form them into strong cadres, in every community, for the further shaping of the rest of Us into becoming the best Direct Democracy Citizens We can be.
Standard = guideline…a “blueprint” that We build and follow in this renewal of Our Nation.
Self Governance = the responsible Citizen majority carefully considered and decided decisions of rules of behavior and conduct within the states and the national sovereign territory.
The Intention, of this Constitutional Preamble, is to declare to Ourselves and the rest of the world, Our determination to become excellent at self governance and to reveal some of the attributes of this New Declaration for a New Condition of Our Nation.

Article. I. Of the “Second Constitution”.
Section. 1. Of Our “Second Constitution”.
“All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

The Third, Direct Democracy Constitution
Article. 1.
Section. 1.
Item One

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Direct Democracy Congress of the United States, which shall consist of an “Volunteer Advisory Senate” and an “Volunteer Advisory House of Representatives” and a “Volunteer House Of The American People” that makes the final establishment of bills and proposals of law and policy for Our Nation.

Note 2: Of course, if “We The People” are intending and going to become the final deciders of the structure and goals of Our Nation, We will have to have Our Own Institution in the government structure to expedite this. In this case, a growing Third House Of Congress, with an eventual and ultimate goal of inclusion of most of the “Best Citizens” of Our Land, might do the trick. A House Of The People.
Based in all the Direct Democracy Homes of the nation and coming into final focus in a facility built for it, in the central area of American Governance. A thousand seat facility should do it. Filled by the selected best, of the Better American True Citizens…in replaced three month increments. Thus affording as many of “the highest qualified of” The People, as possible, this premier governance experience. What the “Qualifications” should be, will be developed and taught in Our Institutions Of Education and revealed in Our Lives.
Here again, a strong American Standard of Fair and Just Governance must be the guide and foundation, from whence We Emerge, into Our “Creational Finite Potential”. A standard that does not let Us make Our decisions based solely on Our Self Interest and Personal Biases. Personal perspectives and convictions are important. Just as important as a well organized collective perspective and conviction. The Few is more important that the One; the Many is more important than the Few.
“Creational Finite Potential” = Is Our increasing understanding of the design and plan for Our Human Kind that emanates from Creator. It’s all about Growth into ever greater Potential of the expression of Life in the Finite Realm of Creation. As New Souls, (constructed in the Spiritual Realm of Creation) We begin Our Eternal Journey, as Children Of God, in the Finite Realm. To Learn is to Grow.

Article 1 – Section. 2. – Of the Second American Constitution
“The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.
No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
Amendment:
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five, and Georgia three.
When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.
The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

Article 1., Section 2 – Items 1 through 23, Of The “Third Constitution”, Of The Direct Democracy Of The United States Of America:

Item One
The “American Volunteer Advisory Senate” shall be based and distributed among the states and have a place in the central governance capitol area, designated by vote of the “Volunteer House Of The American People”. Its members will serve one year terms in sequestered office.

Item Two
The “American Volunteer Advisory House Of Representatives” shall be based in a central governance capitol area designated by vote of the “Volunteer House Of The American People”. The members of this governance body will serve one year terms in sequestered office.

Item Three
The “Volunteer House Of The American People” shall be based and quartered in, the Homes of the Direct Democracy Citizens and in a central governance capitol area designated by vote of the “Volunteer House Of The American People”. The Citizen Members of this governance body will serve three months in sequestered office.

Item Four
Being ideally comprised of the strong majority of the Citizens of the New “Direct Democracy United States Of America”, the “Volunteer House Of The American People”, is, by far, the largest and most numerous House of the Three Houses Of Congress.

Item Five
The Pragmatic Ideal for Citizen membership and participation in the “Volunteer House Of The American People” should be 90% of the voting age populace.

Item Six
There will be three divisions of the membership of the “Volunteer House Of The American People”.
(1) The “Top One Thousand” that go to the central governance area, for three months, in direct physical participation in the legislative affairs of Our Nation.
(2) The “Middle Millions” who participate, with great excellence, digitally, from their homes across The Land.
(3) The “Citizen Beginners”, the youngest and those who have not yet attained the status of “Middle Millions” in their dedication to the governance of Our Nation. But who are still valuable to Our nation, because of their actuality and their potentiality.

Item Seven
The base and quarters of the central “Volunteer House Of The American People” will accommodate, under one roof, one thousand legislative seats and one thousand Family Housing Units. The People of this House will be sequestered, honored and protected, while they are there for their three month term of service.
“Life Records” of each and every Individual will be kept. These should begin for Individuals of three years of age. Parents, Teachers and Record Keepers will work together on the design and formation of these personal records. We each have Our Place Of Honor in Our Culture. These records only to be seen by permission of the Individual only.

Item Eight
Ideally, the best conceptual and experiential strength of Individual quality for social design and benefit to The Many, will be found in the “Volunteer Advisory House Of Representatives” and in the “Volunteer Advisory Senate”…due to the accumulation of Wisdom from Experience in the “Volunteer House Of The American People” and, from the “down side” of this, due to the natural lesser abilities of those new and younger American Citizens who have only begun their careers of Good Direct Democracy Citizenship and have not yet realized a lot of their great potential for “Good Heart and Mind True Self Governance”.

Item Nine
Only, those Of The People, that have Honorably completed their three months service in the central facility of the “Volunteer House Of The American People” are qualified to become candidates for the other volunteer, advisory government branches. This will be a matter of personal choice, unless it becomes difficult to fill the seats of advisement in these other branches and houses. If that happens then The People will consider and select, candidates to serve in these capacities.

Item Ten
The American “Advisory Volunteer House of Representatives”, a legislative advisory body of volunteers, of “proven integrity” in the service of Our Nation and Us, shall be composed of Members chosen, by Individual and Direct Vote, every second Year by the American People of the 51 States. The 357 candidates are selected from the “best” of the Participatory Citizenry of Our Direct Democracy usually found in the upper levels of the “Volunteer House Of The American People”. Levels that are Earned with personal performance of contribution to the nation.

Item Eleven
No Person shall be a “Volunteer Advisory House Representative” who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty-five Years, been seven Years a Citizen of the United States and has proved their worth, through Direct Democracy participation and Our Highest Standards of Citizenship Performance. The time dedicated out of their lives, to Direct Democracy, as well as the degree of quality of that service, will be part of the criteria considered for honored membership in the Advisory Houses.

Item Twelve
There will be seven (7) People’s Choice “Volunteer Advisory Representatives for the Volunteer Advisory House Of Representatives” (The “VARHOVAR”), per each state, of Our United Direct Democracy Nation. This “choice” will be expedited by Direct Individual Vote within the counties of each state and then added to the votes of the other counties within the states and then the nation.
The numbers here are arbitrary. The People will decide how many “Advisors” will be per state.

Item Thirteen
Votes, their accumulation and counting will be supervised and done by Dedicated Direct Democracy Humans. This vote, upon paper ballots, will be initially accepted and counted in “Neighborhood Voting Blocks”. Here the ballots themselves will be held in a secure facility, in the Neighborhood. The totals from these physical ballots will be tallied by (“Deci” – Dedicated Citizens) and entered upon Official Tally Sheets, that are to be transported, by a strong cadre of “Deci” and/or taken by Then these ballot totals will be taken to “Community Vote Holding Centers” and added together. The third step in this vote tally process, will be “County Vote Centers”. Then on to “State Vote Centers”. 

Item Fourteen
The “State Vote Centers”, dedicatedly supervised by trusted cadre of Second and Third Level Citizens, are responsible for the accurate and Truthful reporting of the “State’s Will Of The Sacred Vote” to the Central Governance Facility Of The Direct Democracy United States Of America. This reporting will be done in the full public view of Our Nation, through the communication media.

Item Fifteen
This particular service to Our Nation, will be highly honored and count much into the “Individual Life Record” of Citizens.

Item Sixteen
The Vote and Its accuracy, is a Sacred Truth and must not be defiled with a lack of honesty and integrity. 

Item Seventeen
We The American People, as Individuals Of Good Character, acting in the greatest possible unison for Our Direct Democracy Nation, will be the final deciders of the policies and laws of Our Nation, so, “proportional representation” will not be necessary. Each state shall be an accurate and Truthful expression of its populace.

Item Eighteen
To fear the unjust and unfair control and influence of states comprising larger territories and populations, is not warranted, due to the increasingly Better desire of Justice and Fairness, for Our Nation.

Item Nineteen
When vacancies happen in the Volunteer Advisory Representation from any State, the American People, functioning through their will, will vote replacements in.

Item Twenty
The “House Of The American People”, the “Third House Of Congress”, shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment and Recall within their own House. The other two Advisory Volunteer legislative bodies of Our Direct Democracy Government will provide expert opinion, regarding impeachment and recall.

Item Twenty One
The other two advisory volunteer legislative bodies of Congress, shall choose, from amongst their number, their own officers and their “Speaker”.

Item Twenty Two
The “Eyes Of The American People”, a special volunteer watchful body of dedicated American Citizens, established out of the Volunteer House Of The American People will sit and diligently observe, the Work of members of the American Volunteer Advisory Senate and the American Volunteer Advisory House Of Representatives, for the purpose of monitoring and ensuring the continuous Direct Democracy governance integrity and responsibilities of these honored advisory bodies.

Item Twenty Three
Starting with ourselves, We must ever be on guard against the increase of the “lesser nature” of Our Species. We must become adept at recognition and correction of these inferior traits of Our Kind. 

Note 3: The intention for “Item One”, about the American Senate is to reestablish in “Better Form”, the American Senate as:
(1) A Just Social Construct dedicated Volunteer political institution.
(2) An Advisory capacity body of great Integrity and Honor, that has the intense responsibility to advise the “Volunteer House Of The American People” on recommended best courses of self-governance action.
(3) Having reduced power of “influential entrenchment” in the legislative affairs of Our Nation, so as to aid in the prevention of elitist cadres of control and to help eliminate governance abuses.
The intention of “Item Two” is the same as the intention of the first paragraph.
It is the intention of  “Items Three, Four and Five” to establish a New Legislative Body in American Government composed of as many of the American People as possible.
It will indicate and reflect, the sweep of activity, across the land, of the New True Citizens Of Our New Direct Democracy. This is the “Great Inclusiveness” of True Direct Democracy. Even the “least of Us’ being allowed to contribute, what We can, to the governance of Our Nation.
The vote of a poor man is equal to the vote of a rich man. (And this might encourage the rich man to treat better the poor one…the less poverty, the less inclination to “attack” the wealth and power Citizens. May every Citizen have something to lose in a breakdown of American Culture.)
Here, a stratification is structured, that enables the best of the True Citizens to forge ahead, with Recognition and Honor, in the governance service of the Direct Democracy United States Of America. A stratification that also provides a valid and valuable place for those who cannot “rise” beyond a certain point. Of course, it is hoped that Most of the “Citizen Beginners” will be able to promote themselves, through Proper Application Of Positive Life Skills, Good Behavior and Deeds, into the “Great Middle Realm Of American Culture”. Secure and Strong. In possession of “Our Cultural Consensus”, while, at the same time, providing Life Space and Expression for a wonderful diversity of unique cultural manifestations. A New Level of Attainment for the “Old American Melting Pot Tradition”.
The intention for “Item Six” is to build a social progressive structure for participation in American Government by as many strengths of Individuality and Citizenship, as possible…positive and benign hierarchal levels that serve as a ladder of recognition of increasing personal growth as the Individual Citizen matures and strengthens self in service to the whole. This hierarchal structuring enables Honor and Pride in one’s relationship to and place in, American Society. It provides a mechanism for Personal Incentive.
Also, here the intention is the most dedicated core establishment of American Citizens and their Families in the physical center of American Government. Nearby, will be the “House” facilities of the other houses of American Congress. We The People might seriously consider the relocation of these Houses and the other parts of government to a more physically central location in Our Sovereign Territories. Kansas maybe?
It is the intention “Item Seven” to more clearly designate the central “House Of The People” as an actual temporary Home, complete with living quarters for the Families of those in service and medical and educational facilities. Good shopping can be provided too. This House would be huge, self contained and protected…shielded from all outside influence except that that comes in through the internet.
It is the intention for “Item Eight” to enable Us to develop an important tool to maintain the General and Overall Integrity of Our Society by focusing on its Individual Living Building Blocks. It would include one’s performance as well as one’s psychological profile.
Also, the intention of the Eighth Item is to show the direction of the personal Evolution up through the Direct Democracy governance process. The basic and desirable direction is from “bottom” of society to “top”.
A “Standard of the Efficient and Pragmatic Differentiation Of Individual Personality and Character Strengths” needs to be constructed here. While American Citizens should benefit from qualified equal opportunity, in their society, it is well understood that some Individuals are “superior” and will perform better than those with the “average” Human attributes. HOWEVER! It must be understood that the social value of a “superior” Individual is reduced, if they demonstrate, in their personal lives, characteristics that cause them to harm others. The “superior” Individual MUST attain and maintain, “strong” control of their egos, so that they can best practice Justice and Fairness to the “Average Individual”! And We The People must be very careful about what kind of Individual We entrust with power. We must be very careful in the execution of this particular responsibility. We must hearken well to what Our System Of Education teaches Us about the kinds of Individuals that tend to harm others or prey on Our Society. LEARN TO RECOGNIZE THESE DANGERS! Build social systems that do not allow this kind to control. True and accurate Psychological profiles would serve Us well here. An important reason for “Life Profile Records”, to be a part of the “Public Domain”…an important source of this kind of Education.
A gradient of assessment, derived from the “Life Record” and investigations of those close to the “subject of interest” could be developed, as part of this particular “Standard For Governance Guidance”. This process should not be a matter of public record. This should be a private process. The only sign that an Individual “falls short” in the desired requirements of this Standard, would be in their actual status rating as an American Citizen.
The intention of the “three month term period” is to provide as much opportunity as possible for Individuals to get a chance to serve in the “Volunteer House Of The American People” and then upward to the Advisory Houses of Honor. But, of course, there will be a damming of the flow of Citizens after the service in the People’s House…due to the smaller membership numbers and the longer term periods in the Volunteer Advisory Houses.
A “Standard of Personal Improvement for the Purpose of Stronger Social Service” would apply here. This standard would include educational criteria that is contributive to this Individual quest…the best bodies of information to study.
The intention of “Item Nine” is to establish a means by which Citizen upward mobility, through governance ranks, is EARNED by an experience/performance/qualification participatory process.
The intention of  “Item Ten” is to indicate the way that quality trusted candidates will enter service in the “American Volunteer Advisory House Of Representatives”. There is also indication here of “levels” within the “Volunteer House Of The American People”. These levels will probably be about different kinds of duties within the House, as well as leadership achievements within these “Duty Levels”.
The National Standards indicated above in this proposal will probably serve here as well. Application of the actions of governance to the Standards will probably cause an Evolution of the Standards.
The intention of “Item Eleven” is fairly self explanatory. It should be remembered that a Citizen will already have various experience of governance participation in their lives and should have the necessary strengths to begin function at this House, if selected and elected by The People.
Here again, previously suggested National Standards should apply.
Here again, previously suggested National Standards should apply.
The Intention of “Item Twelve” is to enable a more extensive, or in depth advisory body, to assist The People in deciding the “best” options of law and policy study, design and decision. The idea being the More Minds that address an issue, the better will be the solution to it. Also, more positions in this part of Our New Congress is appropritae as to efficiency and operating Spirit of Our New Self Governance.
The Intention of “Item Thirteen” is to keep “Citizen Level Votes under the control of The Citizens, in their Neighborhoods…in the hope that interference with these important votes is not done. 

The word “VARHOVAR” is just a suggested “gift” for the language of Our New America. It might be felt, that to become a VARHOVAR would be an honorable attainment in one’s Life. “DECI” (for “Dedicated Citizen” is another of these honoriums. I have a few others.

If We developed a Standard that included a conscious effort to imitate and thus harmonize with Creation, or its “laws”, (as We understand them to be) then the use of sevens and threes, as structural elements of National Moral Standards, would become common. The more Spiritually oriented, of Us Americans, would feel and think this…maybe. 

More “Notes” and “Ideas About National Standards” to be developed. Intention notes left off at “Item Thirteen” above.

The “Elk Of Life”

Elk Of Life - A Bright and Glorious Mystery

I have been sporadically working on this large piece of HamaNar, or Narbarian, mythology for about 25 years now. I have finally come to some contentment with the text, which fills about 540 pages.

I am now putting forth an effort to augment the text with illustrations. The story of many and diverse episodes offers plenty of opportunities for “art work”. I have always appreciated books with pictures. They enable brief restful breaks from the continuous flow of text.

The picture I am drawing right now is where the “Red Dragon” (“RhoHana”} is, after a long period of recuperation and therapy for the injured Fandor (“Sharma Shan”), exercising him in the vast skies above her lair. The exercise becomes a skill game where the two flying creatures vie to see how close they can come to each other without disrupting collisions.

Up to this point, in this work, I have drawn the “Elk Of Life”, “Scolos”, “Beloquish”, The Winter March of the “Muhkan People of Onagar”, the “Hot Pool in the cave”, the Oalchud village on Twarth Aga and a couple of maps of those prehistoric times, places and Peoples. Also a dedication page to my “KatDana”, my Dear Friend and Sweetheart for about 43 years now. She has always endeavored to encourage me in this work, that was so important to me.

I don’t really know anything about the marketability of this effort. Originally, I was only writing it as an example and first installment of Narbarian Mythology. I have often fantasized that it might be made into a beautiful James Cameron movie and generate for me and my “Sweety” a  handsome sum of spending leaves with which to finish Our Final Days on Urth. Doesn’t hurt to try.

Here it is, June 22nd, 2019, and I have made about twenty pictures and maps. I’m up to Chapter 17 in Part 2, “Onagar”. I just finished a picture of the “Death Mound” that Onagar’s People, the “Ami-Achina”, made to bury their dead, under the slain bodies of “Shuga” (sub-humans). Mainly the swarm of Buzzards and Ravens, all over the mound, is depicted.

Next will be a picture showing the “Ami-Achina” arriving at their new home on the Caspian Sea. This will be a tricky one, because I will try to show the perspective of the tribe looking down into their canyon from the cliffs above.

That’s about all I have to share about this right now. Probably more later.

New Guidance In My Quest

Have discovered Kevin deLaplante, a critical thinker and Teacher, that has stimulated more thorough cogitation in my efforts for New Tribalism.

https://kevindelaplante.com/028-tribalism-isnt-the-problem/

He has led me back into the foundation areas, to help me strengthen the Reason in my interests about New Tribalism.

He has shared quite a few well made and simple videos regarding this subject. One brought my attention to the problem in Tribalism in general that singles out “Polarization” within one’s tribe and between different tribes.

Sun Power

Our Day Star, “Sol”, is the ultimate Fire in Our knowledge of the Five Elements in Our Lives On Urth. We have Evolved to the point where We can begin to use this special fire like never before. We have learned to convert it into controllable energy. Energy that can make Our Lives have more options for Individual and Cultural expression.

The New Tribes should turn to Our Sun for More Strengths to Live Better Lives. We should turn away from the realm of chemicals as much as We can, The toxicity of chemicals is poison. This poison is one of the things the New Tribes should endeavor to leave behind, as much as possible.

Not all New Tribes will do this. Some of the New Tribes, that are negatively charged products of the Mammonite World, will choose to continue the use of the harmful products, such as petroleum distillates to use as fuel for the roaring vehicles.

Sunlight should be used, for this, instead. It comes to Us, for free, every day (unless blocked by clouds or smoke) It would be intelligent of Us to use it more and more. But here lies the difficulty of this beautiful concept.

Questions:

Should certain groups of the New Tribalism, endeavor to learn the supply and tech skills and practice the technological art of manufacturing solar cells and other Sunlight utilizing devices…so as to not depend on the mammonite city cultures for this?

Do these special tribes have to be in cities to achieve this? 

Could, some of the New Tribes begin their entire existence, on the production of Solar Technology? Could even these special tribes provide the education and training for other tribal groups to use Solar Technology? 

Can the “raw materials” be obtained for this? The Knowledge and Skills?

Suggestion: Make use of what the city builders have wrought and then take it from there. No “throwing out the baby with the bath”. Waste not, want not.

What superb achievement for New Tribalism this would be! Clean technology as part of superior clean living.

The possibilities and potentials are well established. This transition has begun. Make it so in your Life. I will make it so in mine.

I believe there is already fabrics that function to produce Solar Electricity.

Personal Integrity Is Essential To Improvement In Our Species

I will write a few more general proposals and then narrow my focus to more specific work…such as my “pet” project “Narbarism”. I will start a new page of articles for this.

There is no Species Evolution without “Personal Integrity”. It is indispensable to the energies needed for Evolution to progress.

Personal Integrity is the hardest thing to increase in one’s Life, because it demands the best values to be applied to everything We do and think. But it is well worth the effort. It brings rewarding new strengths and changes into your own evaluation of yourself. And makes you more valuable to your own species.

It’s about doing the right things in Life and knowing what those “Right Things” are. This all begins with caring about Good Ways Of Being…and understanding the benefits of increasing one’s personal skills in Personal Integrity.

It begins with a genetic code in one’s DNA and this is nurtured in your Life’s Environment and brought to deeply satisfying fruition as You increase it’s strengths and powers within You. Ultimately you will take charge of your Personal Integrity and validate the elements that were the beginnings of this quality. You will become the “Captain Of Your Destiny” and will become a valuable contributor to Humanity and its Evolution. And this will be rewarded in Eternity, as You continue to grow More and Better Forever.

Before You “go” you become more valuable to Life On Urth.

You have to want this. And then you have to make great efforts to increase it in you.

You will be tested all along the way. Which is a Good Thing, because in the “testing” is the measurement of your progress in ‘Personal Integrity”. Testing keeps it “real”…and protects you from self-delusion…that intoxicating state where you think you are more important to Creation than you Truthfully are. We must never lose sight of the Truth. Even when the Truth reveals only what We do not know yet.

So. If you realize the Truth in Yourself that you do care about “Personal Integrity” and want to increase its strengths in you, then apply yourself to this quest. Be ready to deal with difficult situations and circumstances. These will be your meat to eat.

Become ready to listen and watch and read.

Study lists of recognized Virtues.

Seek and embrace what are the most valuable…to yourself and Humanity.

Do not give in to fear. Bravery is a virtue and a valuable part of Personal Integrity.

Yes. All this easier said than done. Do what you can. Be the “best” you can be, in all the circumstances and situations in your Life.

You will “grow”. You will become more important to yourself and others. You will become of the  “MWE”…the Superior Collective Mind. There is wonderful strength and Wisdom in this.

A note of caution: Remember that “Personal Integrity”, like any other element of Life in the Material Realm, can be misused. Mistakes can be made in its applications. It would help with this problem, to consult others you Trust with some of the decisions you have to make about things. This is where the “collective”, or “group” becomes more valuable to you. To feel that your idea is more True and Useful, not only to yourself, but also to the whole scheme of things.
