The RedAlert webpages have now moved to a dedicated URL. See:

To write my next book, I needed to research human rights, government, and politics. Delving deeply into this last topic soon found me feeling like Han Solo must have felt when Obi-Wan Kenobi said: “That’s no moon.”

As wild as it may sound, we are now, literally, facing the worst and most powerful threat the world has ever seriously dared to think might exist. We are in deadly trouble. And don’t think it is from terrorism, Middle Eastern wars, or global warming. The trouble of which I speak is from a much larger and coordinated threat, a threat that conflates governmental and corporate powers in a bed of corruption, covered by sheets of shallow news and blankets of propaganda. This trouble is from the masters of these powers. These “masters,” as they, in fact, call themselves, are not bound by any governmental constitution, social contract, or any ideas of justice, compassion, or morality: they are in it for themselves, and they are few in number. They are ruthlessly seeking nothing less than the complete subjugation of the rest of the world. And I wish this were a joke, hyperbole, or just a mistake, but there is overwhelming evidence that shows that this is all too real.

In writing this webpage, I feel a bit like Morpheus when he said to Neo: “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.” Except, in this case, the blue pill won’t exactly work as advertised…

The lectures and documentaries included on this Web page are pieces of the puzzle, and are of various production qualities. I am attempting to bring all these pieces together, so you can see the big picture—and do something about it. The first step in seeing this big picture is to understand the establishment press, how the mass corporate media currently works in this country…

Mass Deception

“Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.” —Thomas Jefferson

A free press is so vital to our country that it is specifically guaranteed by our Constitution in the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble…” Even a law requiring a permit for public assembly, marches, and speech is unconstitutional, because such a law effectively reduces, or abridges, these freedoms.

All these freedoms were guaranteed by our Founding Fathers because they knew that the only thing that can ultimately hold a government accountable is the people themselves. In fact, our Declaration of Independence makes it clear that We the people are the ultimate authority, and the government is not: “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

A free press is a watchdog of government; it informs the people by providing the public consciousness with the relevant facts, history, and analysis to make informed decisions about how to guide, hold accountable, and change our government. If laws exist that produce the effect of abridging, or diminishing, the freedom of the press, then those laws are unconstitutional and put our representative republic in grave peril.

Unfortunately, as of 2006, the United States had a free-press ranking equal to that of Botswana, Croatia, and Tonga, and less than that of either Serbia or Chile. To understand our low ranking (likely even worse now), check out the following.

As the above shows, our free press has been critically undermined. The airwaves, which are owned by the public, have been given away by the government to a handful of imperious corporations that can portray to the public any view these corporations care to, even in “news” programs—without balance or accountability. The result has been a treasonous alliance between corporations and the government to pull the wool over the eyes of the public.

Happily, the corporations benefit by being allowed to have unregulated media monopolies, to gouge consumers, to secure tax cuts and subsidies, and to have the law accommodate both them and their super-wealthy owners. The government benefits by being allowed to inundate the public with propaganda, using the media like a massive echo chamber to the public, and to operate unchecked by the threat of a free and effective press. Both forces use the power of the media. They manipulate and manage public consciousness, manufacturing consent with sophisticated and well-funded techniques. Under this engineered guise, nearly unmitigated corruption has been allowed to fester between the rich and the powerful. In essence, we have an oligarchy, a fox in charge of guarding the henhouse, the plundering of a voiceless majority.

While there are a few bastions of an authentically free press in the United States—notably Bill Moyers Journal (Fridays), Democracy Now (weekdays), and Working Assets Blog, all of which I highly recommend—they are simply overwhelmed by the establishment press. This information near monopoly should not be underestimated. If you control the information, you control the decision. “Remember,” as Dick Cheney said, “success for a politician is 50 percent plus one; you don’t have to have everybody on board”—as if politicians are only pass/fail accountable, and only at election time. By stealthily controlling the information that most people receive, politicians can dominate the public’s political views, and through our democratic institutions, greatly influence the outcomes of votes.

In summary, the laws of the United States have been compromised to allow corporate and governmental propaganda to dominate—that is, abridge—our free press, unconstitutionally—hijacking our collective consciousness and pithing the soul of our representative republic. To comprehend the scope of what this can give cover for, let’s take a look at a recent psyche-changing major event, a closer and more objective look than the establishment press would ever allow…


“[T]he broad masses of a nation…more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.” —Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

The evidence is overwhelming: 9/11 was extensively planned, militarily executed under the cover of doppelganger exercises, and industrially covered-up—by elements within our government, along with the help of Marvin Bush, Larry Silverstein, and Pakistan’s ISI. The official story is completely implausible and scientifically impossible from a number of different standpoints. For example, an objective look at the evidence reveals beyond a reasonable doubt that the three “collapsed” World Trade Center buildings were brought down by controlled demolition, using thermate, and that our air defenses were actively disabled by Dick Cheney. Also, the demolition of WTC7 destroyed thousands of corruption cases, including the case on the seventy-billion-dollar Enron California electricity scandal.

This event has revealed the control of the establishment press and the depth of its propaganda. Pentagon war planners publicly admit that ninety percent of their battle plans are psychological, and the Bush Administration spent almost a billion dollars a year paying off reporters, TV stations, and newspapers. The effect has been horrific. People in this country are using doublespeak, saying, for example, that people should give up their liberty for freedom, not even realizing that these two words are synonyms. Others, who seek truth and question the official story, get personally attacked by the press. Even the date of 9/11 appears adeptly designed to provoke and sustain fear, by being extremely similar to a number that is already deeply associated in our psyche with emergency, 911—a number that appears frequently in our day-to-day life.

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Rudy Giuliani were clearly involved. They violated their oaths of office to the Constitution, committed treason against the people of the United States, and executed premeditated mass murder—a crime against humanity. Like the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the USS Liberty incident, 9/11 was a false flag operation in a long history of false flag operations. This latest contrived treachery was used, once again, for political power and imperial tyranny: in this case, to pass the rights-robbing Patriot Act, to establish the repression-ready Department of Homeland Security, and to launch “preemption-required” wars…

The War on Iraq

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. … If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it?” —Edward Bernays, Propaganda (greatly influential on Nazi Germany, U.S. Presidents, the U.S. Army, CBS, General Electric, General Motors, the American Tobacco Company, Procter & Gamble, Best Foods, and the Public Health Service’s water fluoridation policy)

Lies and propaganda about Iraqi connections to terrorism and their “weapons of mass destruction” were manufactured by the Bush Administration and repeated in the echo chamber of the establishment press to manipulate people into supporting an imperial conquest of Middle Eastern oil resources. The independent nation of Iraq had posed no threat to the United States. In fact, not even the false-flag operation of 9/11 could be linked to Iraq, except in the minds of those confused by the establishment press’s propaganda machine.

The Bush Administration got what it wanted: wild profiteering from war, plundering of Iraq’s oil reserves, and military domination in a critical part of the Middle East. However, as a result of this unconstitutional and illegal war, many members of the Bush Administration, including George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, are now unequivocal war criminals. The Iraq war and occupation was never about democracy or freedom for Iraq; it was about its subjugation. The cost to the Iraqi people is unimaginable to us: daily humiliation and insults, terrorizing home invasions, the destruction of irreplaceable Arab and Muslim cultural heritage, a US-paid-for puppet government, a devastated country, massive arrests without charges, indefinite imprisonments, millions of refugees, extreme daily violence, tortured civilians, and over a million people dead. As a result, our presence in Iraq polarizes and militarizes mainstream Arab and Muslim opinion against the United States, develops a desire to strike out with terrorism against us, and confirms Arab and Muslim fears about US imperialism.

All these horrendous things that our government and our corporations are doing in Iraq could only be allowed by our representative republic under the combination of two essential conditions…

Secrecy and Corruption

“If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” —George Washington

“The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.” —John F. Kennedy

The highest authority in this country is We the people. The second highest authority is the Constitution. In 1787, our Founding Fathers created this social contract, the Constitution, to define our system of government and our laws: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land…” So, as long as We the people keep this social contract, every person in this country is bound by the Constitution, our constitutional laws, and our officially authorized treaties.

Members of our system of government explicitly swear an oath to the Constitution, to remind them of this social contract. Under the Constitution, three coequal branches of federal government were created: the Legislative Branch to write laws, the Judicial Branch to judge laws, and the Executive Branch to execute laws. The President falls under the Executive Branch. As stated in the Constitution, “he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Even members of our military must take an oath to “support and defend the Constitution,” to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same, ” and, as stated in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, to obey only lawful orders.

In spite of all this, secretive elements within the Executive Branch have disregarded the Constitution and disobeyed the wishes of the people of the United States. A corruption has set in so bad that the checks and balances designed to protect against corruption have been corrupted: the Justice Department, the FBI, the police, congressional investigations, presidential elections, and even the media that is supposed to inform and rally the people against governmental corruption. In short, a secret government has developed that hijacks the political process away from the people and keeps us in the dark about it.

The methods used by this secret government include all that corruption can buy: favors, exclusions, extravagant parties, junkets, rock star lifestyles, private jets, globetrotting excursions, sex, money, media smear campaigns, intimidation, coercion, extortion, imprisonment, sex with children, violence against children, and murder. Tax dollars are spent to develop highly sophisticated lies and propaganda, used both internally and externally, to confuse people, for example, about false or exaggerated threats to our national survival from terrorists and other enemies. As a result, the United States government has become involved with the exploitation of international resources, with the violation of civil liberties, with organized crime, with drug smuggling, with overthrowing democratic governments, with installing puppet governments and repressive dictators, with terrorism against civilians, with the torture of civilians, with assassinations, with secret wars, with death squads, and with civilian slaughters—and several of these things are conducted within the United States.

This immoral behavior is not at all needed. Our Constitution is a fighting constitution; we can meet any threat legally and constitutionally. It is our methods that separate us from our enemies. Immoral behavior for “our survival” only excuses tyranny, which is what our Nation was born in defiance against!

The secret government puts the government’s regulations, foreign aids, treaties, laws, and enforcements up for sale. But it is We the people who pay: there are no victimless crimes in politics. The rich and powerful are plundering everyone else. Less than half of America’s wealth is allocated to more than 99.9% of its population. Enthroned corporations, allowed to operate in secret, have changed in focus from providing goods and services for the public good at reasonable cost to generating massive profits for unaccountable owners and CEOs at any cost to the public good.

Our government is being reverted to an older form—a total free market designed to serve those who own, where bribery is merely the cost of business and human rights are valueless. We have rank hypocrisy from politicians, political organizations, and governmental institutions. Utterly corrupt politicians pose as wholesome Christians. Money is laundered through nonprofit organizations. Pedophiles give private tours of the White House to their victims. Jeb Bush rigs the 2000 presidential election for his brother. The corrupt are promoted, and openness and accountability are depreciated. The Justice Department, the FBI, and the police have become architects of cover-ups and setups. The corrupt even espouse cynicism to induce the public into accepting corruption.

Our Founding Fathers would be shouting at us while spinning in their graves if they knew. The government is well on its way to becoming a fascist regime. Rightly so, Americans distrust the government more than they ever have in history. Unfortunately, the people who have corrupted the government likely have a well-developed plan that the rest of us will surely not like, or else they would not keep it a secret…

The “Masters”

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a seperation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” —George Washington, letter to Reverend G. W. Snyder in 1798

“The system of banking we have both equally and ever reprobated. I contemplate it as a blot left in all our Constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction, which is already hit by the gamblers in corruption, and is sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens. … I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies…” —Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Taylor in 1816

“Experience should teach us wisdom. Most of the difficulties our Government now encounters and most of the dangers which impend over our Union have sprung from an abandonment of the legitimate objects of Government by our national legislation, and the adoption of such principles as are embodied in this act. Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by act of Congress. By attempting to gratify their desires we have in the results of our legislation arrayed section against section, interest against interest, and man against man, in a fearful commotion which threatens to shake the foundations of our Union. It is time to pause in our career to review our principles, and if possible revive that devoted patriotism and spirit of compromise which distinguished the sages of the Revolution and the fathers of our Union. If we can not at once, in justice to interests vested under improvident legislation, make our Government what it ought to be, we can at least take a stand against all new grants of monopolies and exclusive privileges, against any prostitution of our Government to the advancement of the few at the expense of the many, and in favor of compromise and gradual reform in our code of laws and system of political economy.” —Andrew Jackson, 1832 veto of The Second Bank of the United States (an earlier version of the Federal Reserve)

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” —Woodrow Wilson in 1912

“Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests, which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” —Theodore Roosevelt in 1912

“The warning of Theodore Roosevelt has much timeliness today, for the real menace of our republic is this Invisible Government which like a Giant Octopus sprawls its slimy length over the city, STATE AND NATION. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self-created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection. It squirms in the jaws of darkness and thus is the better able to clutch the reins of government, secure enactment of the legislation favorable to corrupt business, violate the law with impunity, smother the press and reach into the courts. To depart from mere generalizations, let say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States Government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as well be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business. They connive at centralization of government on the theory that a small group of hand-picked, privately controlled individuals in power can be more easily handled than a larger group among whom there will most likely be men sincerely interested in public welfare. These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.” —John Hylan in 1927

“The stock of money, prices, and output was decidedly more unstable after the establishment of the Reserve System than before. The most dramatic period of instability in output was of course the period between the two wars which includes the severe contractions of 1920-21, 1929-33, and 1937-38. No other twenty-year period in American history contains as many as three such severe contractions. … This evidence persuades me that at least a third of the price rise during and just after World War I is attributable to the establishment of the Federal Reserve System and would not have occurred if the earlier banking system had been retained; that the severity of each of the major contractions—1920-21, 1929-33, and 1937-38—is directly attributable to acts of commission and omission by the Reserve authorities and would not have occurred under earlier monetary and banking arrangements. … Any system which gives so much power and so much discretion to a few men that mistakes—excusable or not—can have such far-reaching effects is a bad system. It is a bad system to believers in freedom just because it gives a few men such power without any effective check by the body politic—this is the key political argument against an ’independent’ central bank. But it is a bad system even to those who set security higher than freedom. Mistakes, excusable or not, cannot be avoided in a system which disperses responsibility yet gives a few men great power, and which thereby makes important policy actions highly dependent on accidents of personality. This is the key technical argument against an ’independent’ bank. To paraphrase Clemenceau, money is much too serious a matter to be left to the Central Bankers.” —Nobel Prize-winning Economist Milton Friedman in 1982

The story of the “masters” appears to begin in earnest with banking supremacists who commissioned Adam Weishaupt to found the Illuminati, in Bavaria (Germany) around 1776. The Illuminati was to become the clandestine hand that infiltrates and corrupts private and public institutions for the benefit of the “masters”, the Illuminati’s secret controller. For an exposť about the Illuminati, their basic mechanisms and philosophies, I recommend reading Proofs of a Conspiracy by John Robinson. Evolving and spreading, the Illuminati furthered the reach of the “masters” into the United States in 1832 with the creation of the Skull and Bones society, primarily a recruitment arm to serve the “masters”. See America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones by Antony Sutton, for more information. The following documentary shows how, using their various means, the “masters” take atrocious advantage of our country.

To me, just thinking that people could be out there who do not have a sense of compassion, honesty, or benevolence is completely foreign to me. The first time I found serious corruption, in an employment, I just could not believe it. I could not believe that there were people out there who were really just self-interested and dishonest—it was shocking. However, as I found, these types of people do actually exist, and they view having morals as a weakness.

From what I can tell, the “masters” are, philosophically, social Darwinists: they view life only in terms of who survives and how well. They may be atheists or agnostics, or they may be Deists who conflate notions of God and nature to rationalize anything… The ends justify the means. Deception (including about their religious beliefs), cheating, and killing are merely useful tools. Morality is defined in terms of effective domination. These people are driven by barbaric motives in an world that is otherwise progressing to become more advanced and civilized. The world they want is a world of domination and control, where they view other humans as mere possessions.

However, this world is a nightmare, even for them. They are heading for a world monarchy. The various families currently at the top will inevitably fight for power. They will double cross each other until there is only one family left. Has any of these families actually considered what would happen if they lose this struggle?

It is amazing to think that misinformation, bribery, and coercion and can be used so effectively as to make people follow such ultimately evil plans, plans for their own subjugation, if not death. The “masters” employ a stratified pyramid of mental paradigms for using others, including Skull and Bones and Illuminati members. Each person in each piece of this pyramid is being played, but they don’t know it, though they may know very well that people outside the pyramid and some people within the pyramid are being played. They don’t seem to extend the obvious logic that they are not actually at the top of the pyramid and that they themselves are getting played too: they will be betrayed and killed or subjugated when the time comes. However, the deceptive methods used within and by the “masters” and their human tools, as shown in the second chapter of Proofs of a Conspiracy, are extremely effective, to fool even the most capable and intelligent of people. And these methods have had more than two hundred years to evolve since the time that this book was written.

The plans of the “masters” are truly inhuman and unintelligent. The plan is for kings and slaves. It seems that history almost always finds royalty betrayed and destroyed. Some may say that royalty is the most self-destructive position in society. And what kind of world is this planned royalty shooting for: to raise children to think humans are possessions? Has the “masters” ever considered that they are humans too? Do they not realize that chance had a larger part to play in their obtaining power than their skills, attributes, and performance? I guess they have never seriously considered the ultimate basis of the Golden Rule. Fools such as these at the controls of human society is a fate worse than extinction, for they will destroy the nobility and honor of the human race, write the final chapter, and make the human race appear ultimately weak, worthless, and vile—just when collective intelligence, a properly functioning society, and honest and real education held out humanity’s greatest potentials.

Using reason and appeals to their higher nature is not enough. They know what they have done breaks all sense of law and order and decency. They are in the middle of committing treason against humanity itself. Worse, they have a firm lock on most of the power points of society, and they have all sorts of contingency plans.

What’s Next?

“We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” —Woodrow Wilson

“It was natural and perhaps human that the privileged princes of these new economic dynasties, thirsting for power, reached out for control over government itself. They created a new despotism and wrapped it in the robes of legal sanction. In its service new mercenaries sought to regiment the people, their labor, and their property. And as a result the average man once more confronts the problem that faced the Minute Man.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt

Imagine the following. During unusual concentrations of our military forces in Iraq, one or more nuclear weapons explode at the concentration centers. Our overstrained military is devastated, and Iran (and possibly Syria and North Korea) is blamed for the attack. DEFCON 1 is declared, and the U.S. retaliates against Iran with nuclear weapons. Worldwide panic ensues, stock markets crash, and massive chaos looms. (The “masters” make huge profits from put options, gold, etc.) Inside the US, gangs and terrorist seem to come out of the woodwork and wreak havoc, unchecked by our reeling military or by overstretched civilian forces. Economies around the world begin to grind to a halt. Civil society begins to break down. George Bush declares martial law, and emergency legislation “to restore law and order”—supported by the people, based upon governmental duplicity and a complicit press—is quickly passed, making sweeping sacrifices to our civil liberties.

FEMA, supported by Blackwater and other mercenary forces, composed of mostly foreign fighters who “luckily” escaped the nuclear terrorism in Iraq, supersede civil forces across the United States to “quell the violence” in the “homeland.” But the violence just seems to get worse. News takes on the unmistakable feel of state propaganda. There are arrests, beatings, and even apparent death squads. Congress seems inept; and the people feel terrified and powerless. Rumors start to circulate about death camps…

I hope the above is just bad fiction. But the following information would seem to suggest otherwise.

Taken as a whole, the above shows that we are at war: a class war, as old as history itself. Secrecy, distraction, and unaccountability are being used to try to prevent a clean, or even an acknowledged, fight. However, fight we must! For an informed majority cannot be stopped. The “masters” simply cannot deal with such numbers. No one can stop more than a hundred fifty million Americans, many of whom are armed. The “masters” require that we follow along quietly with their plan. Hence, we must fight a battle of truth, to spread the truth as fast and as effectively as we can!

Taking Our Country Back

“Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.” —Thomas Jefferson

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion.” —Thomas Jefferson

The key for us, “We the people,” is being informed, hopeful, fighting, and unified, so continually strive for these. However, the most important thing we can do, is just spread the word…
  1. Alter your email signature, for example:
    Stand for something or fall for anything.
  2. Email people
  3. Talk to people
  4. Post flyers or hand out information
  5. Encourage others to help spread the word
  6. Spread the word on the Web through comments and discussions
  7. Think out of the box! For example, create contagious educational content on the Web

I also highly recommend that you use political action sites, such as Working For Change, Move On, and Public Citizen. For additional motivation, check out the following.

To contact your congressional representatives more directly, you can put in your zip code or a representative’s name (like Pelosi) at the left of the Web page. Then, click on the representative’s name and, at the middle-right in their personal page, click on the “Washington, D.C. Webmail” link. Bookmark the contact pages for your congressional representative, your two congressional senators, your state legislators, etc. You can also use Google to find the email addresses for your city mayor and your city council members. Tell your government officials what you think, and do so often; you’ll be an empowered part of our democratic institutions.


“Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plentitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ’within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” —Thomas Jefferson

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.” —Abraham Lincoln

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and a bright light it is. One of the most important parts of this light is an authentically free press. All TV stations should be required to have extremely well-funded news programs that the stations, their owners, or the government can not affect any editorial, management, or personnel decisions of. (Initial personnel decisions should be given to Bill Moyers and Amy Goodman.) These news programs (identified as “public”) should have daily prime-time one-hour spots as part of the requirement for each TV station license. The funds to support these news programs should be part of the license deal: funded by those who are applying for the license. This same type of thing should be done for radio and other mass media mediums that are owned by the public. Once this is done, we will soon regain our collective consciousness and be able to deal effectively, as a whole.

The legalized bribery of politicians has pretty much ruined our government. No politician should be allowed to take cash or any type of gift from individuals, business, or any type of organization. All campaigns should be run only with public funds (even private fund use would give invalid advantage) based upon, initially, support from a certain number of registered voters. Politicians should also have strict salary and compensation limits for five years after their public service.

Clandestine operations by our government that are not purely for information gathering purposes need to be outlawed. CIA actions have historically increased/created terrorism, destabilized/destroyed democracies around the world, and decreased/destroyed respect for the United States. Further, the Executive Branch needs to be completely transparent and accountable to the Legislative Branch. Withholding any information, unless by court order, needs to be made a serious and immediate crime. The government must also be transparent to the people in accord with the United States being a representative republic.

The threat of the Federal Reserve must be abolished permanently by an amendment to our Constitution. The United States Treasury needs to freely print its own notes. The Federal Reserve notes should be phased out according to the plan laid out in The Money Masters documentary. When this is done, we can consider reducing and eventually eliminating the unconstitutional personal income tax. Here, here!

There should be no tax-exempt corporations or organizations. All organizations, including religious, should be taxed. Further, no corporation or organization has the rights of a person (otherwise, they overpower us): there needs to be a constitutional amendment to make this clear.

There is much more, such as implementing our full set of human rights, but the above should be enough to get us back on our democratic feet.
