The US Constitution not only dismantles Greed and its fuel source, the Power Pyramid… it also is the formula for discovering Utopia. To do this, it constructs a completely new kind of society.
The Opposite of the Power Pyramid
States Rights creates a structure for society that is self-stabilizing. Essentially, this structure inverts the top-down Power Pyramid, and builds society from the ground up instead.
This structure was inspired by the Native American Indians, if you can imagine. To invert this pyramid, The Constitution does one important thing: takes power from the top of the pyramid, and returns it back to the divinely inspired Sovereign Individual, because nothing can be shared without creating it first.
Instead of top-down, one-size-fits-all Centralized Governance, The sovereign Individual now becomes the creative fountainhead from which society radiates.
Rebuilding a Free Society
This new society is based on “Local” (the opposite of “Global”). Here, each Sovereign Individual is free to manifest their own unique reality, first. Each individual is then free to join other like-minded individuals in Community. Each Community is free to be as radical or traditional as they wish.
With this model for society, working together to achieve great things comes naturally: like-minded Communities team-up to form a County, and like-minded Counties team-up to form a State. States may team-up into Blocs to achieve even larger objectives. Law and Society flow in this order instead: from the creative individual outward.
A New Kind of Ecosystem
To protect and honor this creative and organic flow of society, the Original US Constitution establishes the Federal Government. The Federal Government is defined like a bubble above a fertile ecosystem of States. It only has 3 roles: to protect the 50 States from harm, represent them abroad, and assist with interstate disputes. Every other issue gets determined within the ecosystem.
All powers not explicitly given to the Federal Government, or explicitly denied to the States, is reserved for the States, or the People. (Bill of Rights, Amendment X: States Rights). This is the “Ecosystem” created by the Original United States Constitution.
Not only is this ecosystem more transparent, accountable, flexible and responsive, it also teams with remarkably diversity. Each community can now be as unique as it wishes, while still respecting the diversity and uniqueness of other Communities and States, no matter how different they may be. May the best “organisms” prevail and evolve.
Heaven on Earth
States Rights dismantles Greed and Corruption by decentralizing power. This also sets the stage for the most progressive society ever imagined. How? States Rights opens up a competitive free market for ideas on society’s evolution.
It works like this: instead of a Centralized Government dictating a blunt, untested, “one-size-fits-all” solution to society’s challenges, the concept of States Rights unleashes millions of creative individuals and thousands of Local Governments on the quest, instead.
Like a race to find a vaccine, Communities are free to be as wildly experimental as they wish in an effort to find sensitive solutions to complex challenges in poverty, policing, health, education, housing, elderly, childcare, entrepreneurship and more.
All topics can be genuinely explored within thousands of local Communities and 50 unique States, in real time, as these challenges are actually experienced. The best ideas will rise to the top, and live on to influence other towns, counties and states. Weak, outdated and dangerous ideas will fade away naturally as people move to communities that work better.
The Secret is “Local”
The US Constitution is a system for dismantling Greed, and its Power Pyramid. The self-stabilizing structure that takes its place, is a decentralized ecosystem instead. Do you know what we call this Decentralization? It’s called “Local”.
Just as the solution to Big Corporation is Local Business, the solution to Big Agriculture is Local Food, and the solution to Big Media is Local News… the solution to Big Government is Local Government.
This is where everyone can agree: Power Pyramids are abstract, shadowy, entrenched, restrictive, deceptive and highly corruptible, while Local is responsive, transparent, accountable, innovative and flexible. In every case, a “Local Ecosystem” is much better, in every way.
Resurrecting the Legend
The Original US Constitution is the ultimate champion of Local Governance. This brilliant concept not only protects us from exploitation, it also results in remarkable diversity and free-market ingenuity.
Despite its magnificence, The United States rarely practices States Rights. In fact, States Rights has been gone for 150 years from American discourse, tradition, and memory.
Why? Because in 1871, shortly after the Civil War, Washington Elites pulled an enormous power grab. In the name of “uniting the country”, they reconsolidated States Power back in Washington.
Washington also intentionally eliminated the wisdom of States Rights (diversity / decentralization of power) from education, legacy, discussion and practice. If the concept of States Rights is new to you, it is because our Centralized Department of Education no longer teaches it, in order to protect our Centralized Government.
Anyway, Washington’s Ruling Elites strategically recreated their Power Pyramid, so we would no longer be protected from their exploitation. These Exploiters have been gleefully crafting corrupt policy from Washington ever since, while brokering international deals that only serve their Ruling Class. Meanwhile, we work tirelessly to foot their bill, amid exponentially rising costs of living, crippling regulation, global subservience.
There is a solution: By shifting back to States Rights and the Original US Constitution, we can dismantle the Power Pyramid once and for all, and usher in a new age for mankind:
States Rights in 8 Steps
Fortunately for Americans, embarking on the path to an Enlightened Society won’t require a civil war, military takeover, or succession. It will only require a perspective shift. The US Constitution is already a champion of Local Governance, we just have to explain it that way. Luckily, “Local” is a language both liberals and conservatives gladly speak. Here are 8 steps to making the Shift to Local Governance:
#1 Reclaim our Power. Instead of looking to Washington to solve society’s challenges, we must first shift our perspective: look to our own local Town Halls for solutions. Then, let’s roll up our sleeves and join our neighbors in our own local Communities and Statehouses, and make it happen.
#2 Shift our National Narrative. Instead of promoting hate and division, media should rally all Citizens to join in this National Quest. With thousands of diverse local Communities all engaged in the scientific process of discovery, our national news should highlight new ideas, report on results, and celebrate success all around the Country.
#3 States take the Lead. Did you know, each State has its own living Constitution? This document is where each State imagines the blueprint for their ideal society, no matter how radical. Then, each State must promote this Vision in a campaign to attract their ideal residents, businesses, industries and more. This blueprint is constantly being improved upon by the State’s own elected Senators and Representatives, from within their own State House.
#4 Join your Tribe. If your particular ideas are currently the minority in your Community, your are now called upon to join a Community and State where your ideas are part of the majority. Everyone’s ideas and experiences are valuable in the discovery of Utopia. It is our responsibility to team up with others with the same Community Vision. If we remain fighting against neighbors with whom we don’t agree, our gifts will simply go to waste. Go join your tribe! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to participate in Mankind’s age of Enlightenment.
#5 Shift to States Rights. Next, we untangle ourselves from our overreaching Centralized Government. First, all Social Policy (ie does not strictly fall within the limited federal powers ordained by The US Constitution) shall be automatically transferred from Washington to each State House. Then, each State Legislature shall ask, “Does this policy resonate with our State Vision, or do we have communities that want to offer up better alternatives? If it is the latter, trash the policy and let the Local Communities explore.
#6 Retire Washington. Any elected official who argues against moving Social Policy to the State jurisdiction, is against science and “letting the best ideas rise to the top”. If s/he is against this, s/he is clearly protecting the Power of the Ruling Class (The Exploiters). Now we will know exactly who the Exploiters are, and we can vote / kick them out.
#7 Practice Patience. The discovery of Utopia is mankind’s ultimate Quest. We are at the prophetic shifting point in Spiritual / Universal Energy. We should not expect Utopia to be discovered overnight. The Scientific process needs time, which means it will take a lifetime of exploration and experimentation. Just remember, life is a journey, not a destination. Utopia may be revealed only to our children.
#8 Live and Let Live. Lastly, let’s not hate others for their differing ideas. The more unique ideas are offered, the faster we can test and discover. Everyone’s ideas are fair game to be explored in their own majority communities. Instead of hate, have faith! The Constitution guarantees us this: the best ideas will shine and the weak, dangerous, ridiculous and outdated ideas will wither away as people move to participate in communities that work better. Trust in the Scientific Process.
“Come one, call all!” cried our nascent nation. Today, 250 years later and 350 million strong, Americans are representatives of every world culture, and thousands of years of human struggle. By fate, we instinctually migrated to this land to answer the call of human discovery. At the dawn of a new age, here we all are standing ready to contribute our unique heritages and experiences to the process of our collective evolution.
Our shared destiny is to discover Utopia, brothers and sisters. It is written in our Constitution. It is written in our DNA. We are all here for a reason: to dismantle Greed, unlock Heaven on Earth, and share its Key with the world.
