Fulfilling the Legacy of U.S. Founders
in our 'Global Village"

by Christopher Rudy

"Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic. But will they keep it,
 or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom?
Material abundance without character is the surest way to destruction."

- Thomas Jefferson

If the intention of U.S. Founders has any real meaning – THE LEGACY of their attention to “checks and balances” on the use and abuse of power – then the representation of ALL-CONNECTED Netizens in our instant-everywhere “global village” must be cultured with pure intent for the best interests “of, by and for ALL people”.   And if the New Testament Spirit of “love is for-giving means anything in the Spirit of TRUE Christians who made the original United States possible, they will embrace the original Spirit of American freedom – resurrecting it in the power of love – as will check and balance those self-serving old paradigm values of “love is for-getting” (love of power).   

"Where love rules, there is no will to power.
And where
power predominates, there love is lacking.
The one is the shadow of the other."
- Carl Gustav Jung

Obviously, when a free people go to the shadowy “dark side” that forgets love, self-serving values that are “for-getting” predominate with materialism “wagging the dog” of higher power… calling evil “good”.  Without Common Sense in the Spirit that matters, the selfish love of power that goes around comes around…consuming New Testament virtues with Old Testament values.  Or as Gandhi said,
                                             "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."

"We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest
which will be as long as we can
keep the attention of our people alive.
If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I,
and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors

would all become wolves."

- Thomas Jefferson

There is a simple yet profound way to check and balance the cancerous growth of parasitic bureaucracies -- the self-serving collusion of big government with “big business” (military, media, medicine, etc.) – that is the very definition of Big Brother fascism undermining open-free civilization while professing to save it.  The enlightened world knows that faith in open-free civilization ia better than the "emotional tyranny" (fear) that the REAL terrorists create and manage to perpetrate closed "lock-step" systems that no longer serve the purpose for which self-governing freedom was created.  Honest people know the truth of this and the direction that the evolution of civilization on Earth must go if if the Founders Legacy is to be honored and fulfilled.

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of
fighting a foreign enemy.  Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is,
perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises
and develops the germ of every other...
No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
-- James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution and 4th U.S. President

If we don’t pay attention to the problem here – with pure intention for the common sense solution – the downward disintegration spirals in global relations caused by American military expansionism will continue to force the issue of freedom at the expense of it.  Most would agree that an expansion of the Founder's Legacy is not well served by forced intervention in the affairs of others, especially when the result is clearly more insecurity in the world.  Without the power of love as a higher standard for "Higher Power", the love of power sabotages Higher Power until it explodes in our face with our worst fears sabotaging all that free people hold sacred.  People worldwide see that now with the real enemy of freedom entrenched in the politics of war profiteering and fear mongering..


If we continue forcing the rationale for security through a no-win war rather than peace for security, we will continue losing both freedom and security.  Indeed, we’re ALL in this together – an ALL-connected global village.  And we are ALL responsible as long as we have the freedom of an open system of interaction based on informed choice that enables response ability.  Indeed, the Net reality of the New World of global connection compels an adaptation to the first principles of freedom that U.S. Founders championed. It's time for change in terms most congruent with the process of change itself.


"If you can't describe what you are doing as a process,
you don't know what you are doing."

- W. Edwards Deming, management guru


If we do what we've always done, obviously we'll get what we've always got.  The definition of insanity is to do what we've always done yet expect different results. That's why it is so important to pay attention to an open system for harmonizing and healing the change process itself.  Otherwise, we don't know what we're doing and do things in a a virtually insane way.

"The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs
is to be ruled by evil men.”
- Plato, 427-347 Before Christ


Without “informed choice” -- truthful information and freedom of choice consistent with instant-everywhere interaction capabilities – all our other freedoms are meaningless.

"Public opinion sets bounds to every government,
and is the real sovereign in every free one."

- James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution and 4th U.S. President

There is a New World today that is not unlike the New World that American Founding Fathers knew and championed with the American Revolution.  But now the struggle is more informational and psychological in the collective conscience of, by and for ALL people.  90% of the word “revolution” is “evolution” and the challenge to old paradigms of power and control over hearts and minds is the same in our global village today.

“Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out
the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them;
and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
 - Thomas Paine who sparked the American Revolution with COMMON SENSE

Global Netizens are facing the most profound changes in modern civilization.  Core issues at the heart of personal and planetary sovereignty are rarely addressed in the monopolized mainstream media.  The special interests owning and controlling the mainstream media have a vested interest in keeping common sense uncommon, especially regarding analogies to the pure intent of U.S. Founders for “response-able” (responsible) self-government of, by and for the people.  The power of “informed choice” is increasingly kept FROM the people by the same vested interests that don’t want accountability for their abuse of public resources.

"I say we had better look our nation searchingly in the face,
like a physician diagnosing some deep disease."
- Walt Whitman, "Democratic Vistas

Without mainstream media truth of the problem and solution, people are unaware and unconsciously live a lie yet deny they are being dishonest. Of course, if the media did tell the truth, all honest people would be compelled to challenge the betrayal of the public’s best interest. That's a serious problem when the first victim of the war media is truth itself.


“To sin by silence when they should protest
makes cowards out of men”
- Abraham Lincoln

If the Bill of Rights at the core of the U.S. Constitution means anything, then it’s application in the New World of global village Net reality must be appreciated and actualized. 

"A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on Earth...
and what no just government should refuse."
- Thomas Jefferson in a Letter to James Madison, Paris, Dec. 20, 1787

People worldwide are interacting over the Internet with pure intent of the Founders’ Freedom to Petition Government… to make a better world of, by and for ALL people.

Electronic “town hall meetings” in chat rooms, newsgroups and blogs have the same “New World” Spirit of early America. The Spirit of Independence has been resurrected with Freedom of Assembly in our interdependent Net-centric global village.

Citizen journalism is resurrecting Freedom of the Press like Ben Franklin with the “modern printing press” (desktop publishing to the worldwide web).

Freedom of Speech today is likewise seeing a parallel resurgence with instant messaging and interactive networking over the Internet. 

At the heart of this sovereignty issue is the Freedom of Religion whereby our belief systems either embrace the Spirit of Freedom of. by and for greater Love -- a loving God -- or by default, we buy into (believe in) or otherwise go along with betrayal of those virtues that ALL free people hold sacred.

The prevailing ownership-and-profit paradigm of the mainstream corporate mediathe highly centralized one-way, top-down “command-and-control” programming of the mass mind – is diametrically opposed to the sovereign self-governing non-profit paradigm of a grass-roots, highly decentralized networking in the Spirit of “best for all” (cooperation and coordination of our personal and planetary resources).

Left to itself – without checks and balances of, by and for ALL people – the “command-and-control” paradigm resorts to covert executive orders and overt terror-tyranny tactics that lead to martial law takeover of the freedoms U.S. Founders fought for.  If you doubt this, read www.heartcom.org/choice.htm

The issue is sovereignty – owning one’s own life, learning, health and business – in the face of deeply entrenched monopolistic mercenary forces that put profit and control before people and freedom.  The “media” is inadvertently the “message” that either liberates us or enslaves us.

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization,
not upon the power of government, far from it.
We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon
the capability of mankind for self-government;
upon the capacity of each and all of us
to govern ourselves, to control ourselves,
to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.

--JAMES MADISON, 4th President of the United States, member of the 1787
Constitutional Convention, and chief architect of the United States Constitution.

In response to the sovereign decentralized Spirit of, by and for ALL people, highly centralized government sanctioned media powers have been overtly consolidating media ownership and covertly influencing legislation that corrupts the balance of power between the public's best interest and the special interests of “profits before people” – the self-serving hierarchy of bureaucrats, mediacrats, educrats, medicrats, and autocratic corpo-sycophants of the power elite plutocrats who put “ownership and control” (90% of “the law”) above the Spirit “of, by and for the people.”

The same mercenary forces that sent hired mercenaries to quell the American Revolution have been covertly stripping the American economy for decades, cooking the books of allied corporations and diverting trillions of US dollars into a global police state agenda not unlike the empire mindset of King George’s attempt to suppress the American Revolution.  These same “black ops” have been running a trillion dollar per year international drug trade to finance a “command-and-control” agenda that the monopoly media ignores, denoting their allegiance to these same covert “controllers” that the American public would never approve.  Just as they would never approve the suppression of breakthrough free-clean energy technologies that would free the world from the oil-monopolies that virtually tax all life with toxic genetic poisons in the air not to mention our fuel pocketbooks.

Self-evident common sense tells every enlightened Netizen that either the mass media “mediates” our core Constitutional principles of “checks and balances”, or by default, divine RIGHTS in the public SPHERE will be subverted in the name of human laws hijacked by impersonal corporations bent on “ownership and control” (market share) of the physical and human resources of Earth. 

“The quality of journalism and the quality of democracy
 go hand in hand.”

- Bill Moyers

Given the power of “response-able” (interactive) media to define and refine sovereignty, as never before, ALL independent freedoms are interdependent on the power of media to check, balance and otherwise “mediate” those freedoms.  The consequence of failure to do so is the prevailing propaganda of war profiteers who talk freedom but marche to the drums of war and encroaching tyranny. Ever so gradually we are seeing democratic principles look like the voting of two wolves and a sheep over what’s for dinner.

"Step by step, American liberty is disappearing. Americans are being ruled, regulated,
restricted, licensed, registered, directed, checked, inspected, measured, numbered,
counted, rated, stamped, censured, authorized, admonished, refused, prevented, drilled,
 indoctrinated, monopolized, extorted, robbed, hoaxed, fined, harassed, disarmed,
dishonored, fleeced, exploited, assessed, and taxed to the point of
suffocation and desperation."

-Tom DeWeese

If we don’t pay attention to the Legacy of U.S. Founders, vested interests that profit from disease and war will continue to do what they have always done to "make a killing" on disease and war.  The medical-industrial complex is just as dangerous as the military-industrial complex.  Healing of the this core cancerous dis-ease in the body of civilization requires accountable checks and balances between the selfless power of love(of, by and for people) and the parasitic “love of power” (self-serving special interests).

"The accumulation of all powers -- legislative, executive, and judiciary --
in the same hands ... may justly be pronounced

the very definition of tyranny."
-James Madison, Federalist 47

This definition of tyranny is like the definition of insanity that does what it has always done -- and gets what it has always got -- yet expects different results.  The healing of this insanity and encroaching cancer in the body politic of freedom begins with a system of "homeostasis" (checks and balances) in the network of Conscience - the worldwide web of interactive media -- that defines and refines wholeness and healing.

"Conscience is the most sacred of all property."
~ James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution

Common Sense “of, by and for the people” may be uncommon in the face of the Big Lie of Big Brother, but speaking Truth to power has always required educating the obvious – the cause and core "checks and balances"  solution -- rather than endless investigation and treatment of the myriad dis-ease symptoms of endless provocateur terror begetting endless war divisions and dying to justify security at the expense of freedom until we have neither security nor freedom.  

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil
to one who is striking at the root."
- Henry David Thoreau, Walden
