Unity is the one thing that the political elite have feared the most. Without smashing down the perceived divisive barriers in contemporary political consciousness, we can only expect our society to become more fractured, chaotic and dangerous, and lost.
Trust in that which deceives and harms us is simply not possible for the truly politically awakened.
CHARACTERISTICS OF A TRUE POLITICAL AWAKENING
There has been an agreed upon version of our story taught to us in school reinforced in everyday life by the media and government propagandists. Coasting through life haphazardly believing in this standardized version of reality is a form of consciousness, a contemporaryt way of relating to a world where the individual is consumed by the group, and truth becomes evermore out of reach.
The typical level of political awareness in our society is fairly basic, simplified and incomplete, but it serves as a functional trap for the mind and the imagination, pigeon-holing individuals into a conformist. This psychological trap preys upon two basic human traits: conservatism and progressivism. And because these traits are biologically hardwired into the human psyche, they are exploited as a fissure to create disharmony and division amongst the public.
Many people only rise to a level of political consciousness which allows them to understand their predisposition to one or the other of these traits. Awareness often ends here, with extreme devotion to one side of the publicized political spectrum.
The truth is that human societies have always needed an even distribution of people with each of these idealogical tendencies in order to achieve a balance between our need for external and internal control, protection and care. Political awakening involves rising above the prescribed psychology of division, into a position of appreciation of the qualities which unite us all.
Trust in the Statist System Collapses
To continue to trust and support a consistently abusive master is often referred to as Stockholm Syndrome.
When a person experiences a true and deep political awakening, it is not longer possible to excuse any of the crushing affronts to human rights and human dignity that are intrinsic to state power.
State power is historically abusive. The manipulation of our money supply, endless wars, wasting of public resources, corruption, permitting the destruction of the natural world, terrorizing citizens with abusive police and punitive tax codes, and limiting prosperity with regulatory overkill are all standard operating procedure for the state.
In a statist world, the awakening individual is tasked with the challenge of seeing through all of this in order to free the mind and see the greater possibilities for freedom and cooperation in the human story.
So-Called Leaders Are Seen as Puppets of Division
The pendulum of public opinion and discourse swings violently back and forth between the merits of two political parties is predictable and destructive. We are guided into engaging in the divisiveness, dominated by the prop-rhetoric of the political establishment.
It is our unity they fear most.
The trap of dogmatic ideological fortifications is more threatening to our society than about anything else.
The Wholotically awake fly above the argumentative mentality of those who are trapped in the two-party dualistic paradigm.
Recognition that Politics is Heavily Influenced or even Controlled by Powerful Forces
We The People in the arena of government, clearly influenced by corporate interests, intelligence agencies and deep state operators, and supranational organizations, have no power.
It makes no sense to pretend as though politicians are acting in the true interest of actual people. It makes no sense to pretend that we can save ourselves by calling on members of the state to represent us in their corrupt scene.
It is commonly known that politicians are beholden to special interests, and while they never talk openly about this influence, so many people carry on with the charade that politicians can wield power over these organization, for the benefit of The People. They cannot, for these forces are beyond their control.
The politically awakened understand that this extends far beyond the political scene.

Current humans empowered with “informed consent” are ending a viciously psychopathic history by a .01% upon the 99.99%. These 99.99% would never consent to what’s being done to them if empowered with accurate comprehensive information of their conditions. The informed are motivated to end the psychopathy, and create a new future of peace, technological advance, and cooperative happiness.
Objective, measurable, and independently verifiable facts easily explain, document, and prove Earth’s history of:
These “Big Lie” crimes center in war and what is used for money, but extend into ~100 areas of vital concern for all Earth’s inhabitants. The ongoing costs of Earth’s history controlled by these .01% literal psychopaths (and here), extending to our world of the present, are annual war and poverty murders of millions, gruesome harm to billions, and looting of trillions.
Again, and importantly, these are facts that anyone with a basic education can easily verify with a few moments of attention as objective statements about Earth’s most vital conditions.
Res ipsa loquitur: these facts speak for themselves, for all who are ready to see, listen, and feel with Enlightenment ideals. If you’re educated enough to read this, you recall the points of the Enlightenment (ideals Americans are rightfully proud to embrace):
Reject thoughtless obedience to would-be kings, so-called lords, and wanna-be masters in government, religion, and a .01% privileged class connected to government.
Have EVERYONE educated enough to consider and discuss factual evidence in full freedom.
Have EVERYONE empowered with voice and vote of how the facts should be related with in policy (what to do) in order to ongoingly optimize unalienable rights of Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Please stop until you’ve fully embraced this point: we assert facts that are independently verifiable, and to our knowledge have never been refuted. Indeed, as you’ll hear from Gandhi and Simon Johnson below, the .01% will do everything to avoid factual consideration of our points because our case is as clear as asserting a baseball pitch ten feet over everyone’s head is not even close to the definition of a “strike.” And we have the video for anyone’s independent review and analysis. In fact, we are unaware of any official voices even attempting refutation.
So, what stands between “Winning Time” and where we are at the start of 2015?
If the following three phases make sense to you, please make them your own, use them as you see best, and enjoy this wild planetary ride where Truth is far stranger than fiction:
Critical mass of 99.99% discern and choose facts over .01% criminal psychopaths’ propaganda.
99.99% remove lying sacks-of-spin criminal psychopaths from power.
99.99% initiate breakthrough freedoms in peace, technology, happiness.
Let’s consider each point:
Critical mass of 99.99% discern and choose facts over .01% criminal psychopaths’ propaganda.
Humanity has gone through an up-spiral phase of the process described by Gandhi (attributed and unsourced):
- First they ignore you.
- Then they laugh at you.
- Then they fight you.
- And then you win.
The up-spiral seems to be that today’s revolution (Latin etymology: to turn around) is global; a turning away from accepting debt and “wars for peace” from former/current colonial powers (and who/whatever’s coordinating this) and their creations (like the hypocritical war-enabling UN). When yesterday’s leaders, like Dr. King, spoke and acted to occupy Washington D.C. until his version of today’s wars were ended, and those resources unleashed for ending poverty, the US psychopath oligarchs assassinated him (as proven with overwhelming evidence in the King Family civil trial). Today’s “leaders” are people like you and me, in all areas of Life, learning, processing information, communicating, and making stands for the brighter future the 99.99% yearns to create, and all in multitudes of Life’s areas.
The .01% have rejected reasonable offers for surrender, including the attractive option for Truth & Reconciliation (and here) whereby they accept pensioned retirements without prosecution in exchange for full disclosure of what they’ve done and how they did it for God knows how long over Earth’s history. This option was/is also attractive for the 99.99% because planetary abundance easily provides for their retirement (their minions would overwhelmingly request to reclaim their hearts and join us), we could most rapidly end their criminal destruction, and we’d avoid corning the dangerous and vicious “leaders” afraid of anything they can’t control.
Critical mass of the 99.99% will occur in a relative moment, similar to paper catching fire as fire/light-sources become closer and closer: nothing happens for a long time, and then most-quickly the fire/light spreads like, well, wild-fire.
Another helpful analogy of the 99.99%’s “awakening” is the Emperor’s New Clothes. A .01% “leader” parades in obvious naked pretense, with zero facts “covering” his propaganda, and only supported by the duped and/or owned minions. This tragic-comedy ends with the ease of a child’s examination of the most obvious and verifiable facts (capacity we all have to simply look and see), the voicing of those facts that absolutely refute the propaganda, and a few more voices confirming the obvious.
His immediate best-selling book, 13 Bankers: The Wall Street takeover and the next financial meltdown, was discussed with President Johnson’s Press Secretary and journalist with over 30 Emmy Awards, Bill Moyers, to explain the oligarchy, loss of trillions of American taxpayer dollars to oligarchs’ manipulation as a matter of definitive fact, the oligarchs’ looting of America is protected by partners with political muscle, and all rational consideration of the facts prove massive crimes by the .01% against the 99.99%:
The American democracy was not given to us on a platter. It is not ours for all time, irrespective of our efforts.
Either people organize and they find political leadership to take this on, or we are going to be in big trouble absolutely the heart of the problem. these people will not come out and debate with us. they will not come out. They’re afraid.
They don’t have the substance. They don’t have the arguments. We have the evidence.
They have the lobbyists and control of the narrative.
They’ve got the power, the muscle, the money.
We have the arguments. We just have the facts. On your side. That’s exactly what it comes down to.
So how close are we to critical mass?
Winning Time will conclude in a fury of rapid developments similar to the above two analogies of fire and public recognition of a naked would-be emperor.
We can be absolutely confident asserting is the validity of the facts anyone can confirm,
informed consent ends this domination in the following way…
99.99% remove .01% from power.
Informed consent turns ordinary people in obvious favor of ending the .01%’s psychopathic destruction of wars, looting, and lying by a likely percent of 99.99% (consider who would really choose dominated misery after freely allowed fully informed choice of short and long-term consequences of each choice).
Once critical mass is achieved of public embrace of our facts, psychopathic policies are replaced with lawful arrests (and here, here) rather than stupefied obedience.
So how will such arrests occur that end these tragic-comic crimes?
Sorry, again: none of my colleagues can predict how the endgame plays out (speculation here). That said, we’ve never found a counter-argument against the obviously necessary accomplishment to remove such Orwellian “leaders” from further power. If they’re in power, they’ll continue their psychopathy. Because our criminal psychopaths must be arrested, all of us can and should think, speak, and act for their arrests.
Our thoughts, words, and actions are totally within our authority (consider this, this, this).
My colleagues and I have no advice over how to play this game. We respectfully assert that humanity’s choice is either to play the game of “Winning Time” for all Earth’s inhabitants, or allow us all to be played by psychopathic oligarchs.
No real improvements are possible with “leaders” acting for viciously antagonistic control with aggressive action to create a slave class out of the 99.99%.
Be proud of your thoughts, words, and actions: We The People United has an historic role to play.
3. 99.99% initiate breakthrough freedoms in peace, technology, happiness.
Either you’re going to go along with your mind and the truth, or you’re going to yield to fear and custom and conditioned reflexes. With our minds alone we can discover those principles we need to employ to convert all humanity to success in a new, harmonious relationship with the universe. We have the option to make it. – R. Buckminster Fuller (archive at Stanford)
Ending the .01%’s unlawful and lie-based Wars of Aggression, poverty-murders, bankster looting, and corporate media lying is an unprecedented victory in itself!
Available economic solutions transforms us to full employment, the best infrastructure we can imagine, and declining real prices.
Truth in media will inspire and catalyze good-faith work for genuine advancements.
It’s relatively easy for anyone with even a small degree of intellectual integrity and moral courage to see the crimes and propaganda.
Seeing solutions takes a higher degree of intellectual integrity, to see what an unleashed planet is capable of creating.

The purpose of political parties usually is to influence government to implement policies of the party. The purpose is getting into and staying in power.
Political parties mirror society as it is.
“Normal” Parties have a “steering committee” or something similar at the top, elected party members next then the regular party members.
Conventions give the illusion to the individual party members that they have the power. Topics are decided beforehand by smaller groups and committees. The structure is pyramidal.
People disagreeing face expulsion and loss of party membership if they do not stick to the party line. Once in power, original goals lose their importance.
Leaders get co-opted and corrupted with political parties keeping the current system functional giving the illusion that people have a say.
Parties split society along party lines the same as religions and ideologies split society along belief lines.
Political parties are completely unfit to solve problems to the system where they exist. They never will because they are inherently incapable of changing the control levels meta to them.
Initiatives against this or that or to save this or that. focus on a single issue not addressing the array of other problems that are present. If they are lucky, they reach their goal- let’s say to prevent the construction of a motorway. Then their purpose is fulfilled and they disappear. If they do not reach their goal they disappear out of frustration of the people involved.
Representative voting makes people feel as if they’re given a choice. Voting validates the sucker, the slave and the conquered person to themselves.
The sucker feels as if he’s accomplished something valuable.
The slave was allowed to choose a new master, and therefore, must not be a slave.
The conquered person is thrown a table scrap, making him appear less conquered.
Ultimately, voting placates those who are ground under. Modern countries without voting, revolt. Unrest and radicalism exist in the medium of extreme poverty and gross social imbalances.
Americans believe they aren’t directly peasants even as they are indirectly.
Those running the show don’t want a revolt. It isn’t profitable.
The vote exists to give legitimacy to the veneer of a free society; the illusion of choice. We must be given the feeling as if we are controlling their own destiny because we have been brainwashed to believe we are free people. In the end the representatives do what they want.
Politicians are the last group that will initiate any action towards resolving any needed change.
If we expect politicians to do what the population can’t do, that is think further than the next election as opposed to thinking about what has caused us to come to the brink, there is no hope that we can resolve the ongoing calamities.
Politics act as a buffer and scapegoat should the host rise to destroy the Pyrasite Nests. The first step to understanding representative voting is to get past the surrounding emotional manipulation.
These kinds of messages are all used as emotional justifications for voting. They’re emotional pleas by which people become emotionally invested in voting.

We have a wholistic approach. The Party reflects and mirrors the society we want to create. Living what we preach. We transform into communities that provide everything a tribe does, a modern tribe, interacting with the world around it on the basis of mutual benefit.
Everyone is important
Every opinion is valid with some more than others depending on the comtext
Everyone encouraged to express themselves by listening to what others say
Domination patterns on alert about
Creating communities whereby we support each other in all life situations (sickness, bereavement, loss)
Caring for the well-being of all
Making decisions as equals taking into account the long-term effect of our decisions
Growing as much of the food we need in a co-operative way to again connect to nature and our spiritual selves
Fear and isolation can disappear and a tribal spirit emerge.
Evolve into a stable community where we can take care of each other instead of being taken care of.
Where we decide. Instead of being led like a flock of sheep. Where we can become increasingly independent from the unfit old system until it is no longer needed.
Network with other organizations or communities that have developed along similar lines.
A synthesis of modern technologies and solutions, ancient knowledge and wisdom, modern science and intrinsic human spirituality and bring together the suffering people in the industrialized world and the developing world.
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. –Machiavelli
History will have to record that the greatest tragedy in this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. -Martin Luther King
Every human culture, to remain healthy, sustainable, and vibrant, requires a constant renewal of ceremonies, crafts, cultural practices, and the arts. Each society must generate new knowledge, skills, self-understanding, and modes of self-transcendence. To evolve, a human community must have available a diverse set of authentic and viable social forms that enables it to respond to shifting times, long-term weather patterns, food sources, spiritual needs, cultural longings, and relations with other human groups. –Bill Plotkin
Tribalism is an inescapable fact of the human condition. It is a type of social system that has worked for human beings for millions of years, and has a very adaptive effect in human evolution.
In recent years anthropologists and sociologists have greatly revolutionized the concept of the tribe. Such philosophers as Daniel Quinn and John Zerzan have brought to the forefront a kind of tribal revolution, where tribalism, as an open-ended, cooperative community, is seen as the natural state of humanity, as proven by two million years of evolution.
We The People United tribalism is the natural progression of this tribal revolution, a revolution that will potentially take us from a monetary-objective-based economy to a resource-relationship-based economy.
Our solution is not to return to nature regressively, but to find a way to get everything back into connection with everything else.
What’s needed is a radical restructuring of culture based upon the rejection of alienation and an embracing of nature.
This requires a balance between our conscious innovation and our unconscious primordial foundation. What we have attained through our modern individual consciousness can be enriched by the re-awakening of our connection with community and nature, and by curing rampant nature deprivation.
Like Jung said, “Civilized man is in danger of losing all contact with the world of instinct –a danger that is still further increased by his living an urban existence in what seems to be a purely manmade environment. This loss of instinct is largely responsible for the pathological condition of our contemporary culture.”
As it stands we are the spoiled children of human history. Our inheritance is a fundamentally unsustainable civilization–complete with security, luxury, and convenience. But we are too spoiled to realize that we are also the heirs of atrophy- complete with insecurities, pathologies, and dissociative anxieties. Lest we remain pathological, we must bridge the gap between nature and the human soul, a gap that grows wider and wider by the day.
We The People United tribalism seeks to bridge this gap through a relationship-based system of governance, a form of post-modern tribalism with emphasis on moderation, flexibility, open-endedness, and harmonious balance with the ecosystem as a whole; where diversity, not uniformity, is what is known to work.
It is directed toward getting more of what people need (social connection, meaningful “work”, more leisure, and balance with nature), as opposed to more of what people have been conditioned and brainwashed to think they need (power, status, amenities, and luxuries).
In this government the economy is as much a local affair as ecology is, working in small cells, that benefit the tribe in a natural, fluid way, functioning harmoniously in between the two poles of altruism and selfishness, our Comuneecologies.
This “way” is a way of life that has proven itself through thousands of years of evolution. Tribalism is far from perfect, but it is the only “way” that has been proven, over and over again, to work for human beings. For the same reason that a pride of lions works, or a flock of geese works, or a troop of baboons works, is the same reason that a tribe of humans works.
A truly stable social system expects vicissitude, is open to being overthrown, and waits for its inevitable transformation.
We The People tribalism is a social system that subsumes change. It adapts, absorbs, and overcomes any amount of insurrection or civil instability; understanding that it is a natural, healthy process of a people becoming a people.
It’s about the open-ended creative expression of a people, where truth-as-value trumps truth-as-certitude, where value is based upon eco-centric fallibilism as opposed to certainty based upon mere diplomacy. In We The People United tribalism the concept of “community” is uttered with genuine self-expression, indeed, as an impression of self-as-world and world-as-self, holding no illusions that there is any permanence.
Sadly, due to the hyper-individualism of our culture, we have lost the ability to form healthy communities in traditional ways.
The old cultural model is grossly outdated, and the world of man is damagingly artificial.
People see each other through myopic lenses of self-as-object and object-as-self. This is psychosocial egoism at its most dissociative and narcissistic.
Ours is an abnormal form of democratic government imposed by plutocratic circumstances, crass materialism, cultural imperialism, and obsessive utilitarianism. Its activities are reduced to dodging the current crisis, and instead of solving them, escapes them “for the time being” by employing any ducking methods whatsoever to remain comfortable, even at the cost of accumulating far greater crises. As it stands the current monetary-based system is obsolete, non-progressive and inevitably harmful to human beings.
We don’t need one-track-minded workers slaving away their lives to dog-eat-dog corporations; we need inventive individuals creating values with love and purpose. We don’t need sheep baying blindly beneath the wolves who govern them, we need an educational revolution.
Like Thomas Jefferson said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding on what to eat. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” Eco-moral tribalism is a social system meant to be comprised of well-armed lambs, and a well-armed lamb is nothing less than an educated person. But in order to achieve such a state we need an educational revolution. We need a system that prepares children for life, not for work. It is a mockery to use the majority of a child’s life to prepare them to be a worker. We are not workers, we are creators. Eco-moral tribalism is a social system meant to be comprised of inventive free creators. But in order for this to be achieved,
Purpose must replace money as the supreme human motivator.
It may not seem like it but money is the poorest human motivator, purpose is the best.
Autonomy, mastery and prestige trump money. Scientific experimentation has proven this over and over again. What motivates human beings is not money but purpose. To place money as a prime motivator for people is to put an unstable cart before a crippled horse. Lest we evolve as “an individual” instead of as a species, we must get power over power, that is, we must get power over the monetary system that has thus far enslaved and blinded us as a species.
Where the current monetary system highlights the power of the individual; tribalism highlights the power of relationships and bonds. Where the current monetary system has us hungering for money, status, and jobs; tribalism has us hungering for harmony and connection. You cannot buy safety. You cannot buy security. Safety and security have only ever come as the human species becoming a people. A healthy culture is a people that shares and borrows within its system of cohabitation. The reward is less poverty, where wealth is based upon the resources available and employed more for use than for show; more as a tool to bring people together, than as a weapon used in a vicious game of one-upmanship.
A resource-relationship-based system is a social system based upon Natural Capital and ecosystem valuation on the one hand, and the dynamic of human relationships and other-than-human relationships on the other hand. This includes eco-technology, and giving doubtful beneficence to the shape that technology will take within the biosphere while improving both the means and the ends of evolution. This type of system also replaces the outdated concept of “good/evil” with the updated concept of “healthy/unhealthy” in order to clearly determine “right/wrong”.
combined with Capital Munificence and the Sumak Kawsay method discussed in Commitalism, should yield a system of governance that can bring tonality to an otherwise atonal world, tribal in nature. Who knows where such movements could lead to in the future.
people don’t make decisions, they arrive at them. They arrive at them through fallibilism and careful democratic discussion.
groups of people have to work on problem solving.
Problem solving is the key, and fallibilism is the hand that turns that key. Our current social system is a problem of resource shortages and poor distribution. we resolve the problem of resource shortages we move forward as a species.
If we learn to solve problems, we will have healthy progress and we will survive, if we cannot learn to solve problems, we will have neither progress nor survival and we will destroy ourselves. a platform for the healthy democratic discussion of human problems.
An We The People United tribe is powerful in the sense that it is vulnerable and fallible, and not in the sense that it is secured and perfect. A member of an tribe understands that security and perfection are only ever illusions. The tribe functions because it is imperfect, and thus it is able to renovate, adapt, and overcome; therein discovering true power/value. The tribe functions because it is vulnerable, and thus it is able to connect, to rehabilitate, to cultivate, and to love; therein discovering true power/value. A people being and becoming a people is only ever a locally holistic concept. It is in this sense that eco-moral tribalism embraces the “eco” of economy and ecology as a local affair that benefits the tribe and the environment in a natural, fluid way; functioning harmoniously in between the two poles of eco-consciousness and selfishness. The difference between ecology and economy is a matter of attention and intent. Ecology is to attention as economy is to intention. An eco-moral people are both attentive and intent regarding ecology and economy, and therein arises the cultural ethic of eco-morality. As long as the people can respect the ecology/economy, there will be harmony. As long as the people can be honest with each other regarding moral and ethical principles, there will be harmony. As long as the people can communicate democratically using fallibilism as their platform for discussion, there will be harmony.
The spirit of revolution is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. –Thomas Jefferson
It begins with education. And so it begins with an educational revolution. And so it begins with insurgency. Is it as simple as this? No, it is not. But we must begin somewhere, lest we end everywhere.
Like Camus said, “Heroic lucidity in the face of the absurd is all we have.” Healthy global change is no walk in the park.
We disturb homeostasis in order to achieve a new healthier homeostasis. This means experiencing a temporary state of discomfort. It will hurt, and then it will hurt worse. And then the real pain will begin. But it is only after the pain that it becomes clear a band-aide was needed in the first place.
So it comes to this: What is the responsibility of a moral person on a dying planet? Heal thyself!
Strive for healthy change. When you begin to change, the entire system begins to change, and then a true Eco-moral globalism can be socially actualized.

Isolation equals disempowerment. Humans feel helpless when isolated. People do not engage to replace the failing system with something better because they feel powerless or perceive the powers that shouldn’t be as being the normal state of affairs that cannot be altered. Resulting from the isolation from nature and fellow human, instead of developing their intrinsic individual spirituality and respect and understanding for everything This is exploited by those who want control and domination or, even worse, it is used to turn humans against each other.
Any movement aiming to replace the failing system with something better must create an environment where people can connect with one another on a deep personal level as well as with nature, which they are a part of. How can that be done?
When we can bypass the fear and isolation that allows control and domination and massive destruction we can begin to evolve ways that allow our natural ways to flourish. Where we can effect meaningful and lasting change.

set of rules of engagement called the Open Enterprise Governance model.
the open enterprise model offers a new way of working together that is decentralized and dynamic.
We are replacing the command and control hierarchy with a collaborate and co-create model.
In this new political party model, there are different levels of engagement with a manifeststream.
What are the levels of engagement?
There are 3 levels of engagement with a manifest-stream:
- core team.
The core team take responsibility for the success of the Party and assumes whatever they are capable of achieving, with the help of the total Party.
