I promise you that it is good for you to feel reverence for mother nature. Now go out and build your civic institutions to most strongly support your relationship with your mother. Teach your children via school curricula that knowing their mother will serve them best in their lives, and if the civic institutions lose the connection with the source of life, it is the people’s duty to restore that connection.
For the people to share the info needed to achieve independent self-rule, the processes of sending/receiving the messages have to feel good. So I need to feel good writing this. And more importantly, one has to feel good receiving info about social conflict. So one of our key agenda items is learning how to feel good with these processes. Now let’s discuss a basic idea. Hollywood and Madison Av. are places where many untold hours and calories have been spent creating formulas that appeal to our senses, to achieve some commercial end. Various other enterprises across history were similarly dedicated to creating those formulas for reliably drawing the people’s attention for various ends, to concentrate power, to control societies and people. But given the people’s agenda, we ask what if all those resources were spent instead creating formulas to draw our attention to disperse the power to the people, to achieve the people’s agenda of self-rule? Such an enterprise is direct in objective rather than perverse in objective (better terminology here would be highly valuable – any ideas?)
To ask how I can better focus my personal energy, or direct my curiosity, to better build the people’s movement is to ask how anyone can do the same, and the people’s agenda crucially includes developing this skill. I notice that I am curious to understand how my motivations work to more or less effectively sculpt/refine my personal program to help achieve the people’s agenda of independent self-rule. I know that the more I learn and apply the more experience can be applied to everyone’s program to help banish elite rule and achieve the people’s self-rule.
Societal systems are built by people. Systems are built with a small number of elites providing most of the guidance and most of the people contributing without a clear picture of how it all works. The people’s movement changes this by developing a clear simple model of how systems work, so the people can feel comfortable thinking about it, but not being required to think about it full time. Rather, our public discourse portrays the model, and its manifestations in various societies including the here/now society, in a simple and clear enough way for the people to continue feeling good enough to think/act to help to effectively manage the system.
We all do stuff out of habit. We need to rely on subconscious habit to streamline our personal tasks, to save energy. The people’s movement identifies the challenge as simply to take control of our personal habits away from others and only allow ourselves to habituate what we know to serve our personal, and collective, better interests. This sounds hard but it’s actually easy as we habituate the process itself. Exciting times for the people. Independent self-rule. Universal enlightenment, solidarity, equity and justice. Our vision and path are clear.
The dissonance that Peter Buffett felt in running his father’s philanthropic racket is not an isolated phenomenon. The dissonance, incoherence, confusion and conflict that that boy crashed into when he came of age and learned how the world really works is a great burden borne by a huge percent of the entire population in capitalist societies, and in social hierarchies of every possible mutation. The fundamental injustice of social hierarchy has to be camouflaged behind delusions because human nature is outfitted with a conscience, a heart, compassion, a cooperative, altruistic spirit that make the human experience far greater than experiences of life without conscience. The people’s philosophy recognizes and requires that the human conscience MUST be fully satisfied, which means, sorry, but the elite-driven delusions, and the agenda behind them, shall be shattered. And so the elite agenda is on the people’s chopping block today.
Elites are distinguished from the mainstream by hyper-active egos driving their every thought and action. The elites’ egos were starved by their deprivation of attention in their early years and so they spend their lives as sociopaths hoarding everything they can get their greedy little claws on, and in the process sowing dissonance, incoherence and confusion to trap the people into slavery to elite rule. But the people’s philosophy recognizes this illness and the people are working to ensure that all of us will get the attention we need in our early years. Thus we will be able to direct our energy through our hearts instead of through our egos in our adult lives. So we need not flounder in hopelessly tangled confusion and compromise but can achieve almost complete separation of right and wrong. So we will not be enslaved by sociopaths, but will achieve self-rule, and maximum universal wellbeing. The people are assuming stewardship of the societies, globally. Exciting times for the people.
I’m feeling great about my personal power and in a minute you’ll feel great about your personal power too and soon after you will feel great about helping achieve the people’s nirvana in you lifetime or shortly thereafter. We are products of our environment. If we grow up enjoying an environment of cooperation and enduring happiness we will strongly tend to favor that environment our entire lives. If we grow up enjoying an environment of competition, fleeting happiness, and myriad tangled webs of ethical contradictions we will strongly tend to favor that too our entire lives with that developmental programming contributing strongly to the contradictions, confusion, and frustration of such a life.
The people’s agenda includes setting the best environment for the children’s development, an idea that is not controversial because “the best” is open to interpretation as decreed by the prevailing philosophy in modern Merka. But when the people define “the best” according to the people’s philosophy/vision, those programmed in an environment of competition will shriek controversy. The elites have two competing versions of reality. Their conservative version says the best environment is that of competition. Their liberal version says the best environment is either competition or cooperation depending on your personal preference.
But the people’s version of reality says we must live in an environment of cooperation to achieve maximum universal wellbeing. The people’s philosophy also says the inherent disposition of women to preserve things is superior to the inherent disposition of men to build things. The conservative gropes for ways to convince us that men are superior, while the liberal gropes for ways to convince us that no one is better than anyone else. Never mind that the elite has his boot on both their necks, eh? The people end the controversy by decreeing that the woman’s tendency to preserve and nurture is superior to the man’s tendency to build, because we want to build fewer things and have the things we build last longer. So you see our common sense at work. Just compare Europe’s castles with Merka’s throw-away houses, and the lying/confusing agenda behind throw-away production, and ask the liberals and conservatives to rationalize that. This is the point where they will dodge the question and ask you to meet them at the plunder-fest for empire-cookies.
This comparison of the female tendency to preserve and the male tendency to build illustrates the people’s routine of soberly look at the facts and shaping our reality accordingly, i.e. coordinating our values/policies to line up with the facts on the ground. The people must decree that the liberals’ tolerance for “anything goes”, including elite rule, is intolerable to the people because, very simply, it leaves intact elite oppression of the people. Liberals will claim that the people’s agenda means the people’s oppression of elites.
And the people say this is good. But how can one form of oppression be better than another? Simply because of the huge difference in the number of people oppressed. And also because the human ego cannot understand reason, so the heart can never achieve parity with the ego by reason alone. The people understand that the fundamental social conflict is between the human ego and the human heart. All other social conflicts either derive directly from this or are greatly inflamed by the reign of the ego in modern societies. Elites are primarily driven by the ego, while the people are primarily driven by the heart. The heart is compassionate/cooperative, while the ego is greedy/competitive.
The people’s nirvana is based on the simple choice to build societal structures that only support the heart and withhold support for the ego. So the people will never deploy civic institutions and public messages to control people’s ideas/activities, but will deploy the institutions to stop ego-driven ideas/activities from affecting the people through public channels. And we will deploy institutions to support the people in building cooperative environments for the children to cherish, support, and enjoy their whole lives.
The ego will be oppressed but only because the ego cannot contribute positively to the people’s wellbeing. The people’s nirvana is universal enlightenment, solidarity, equity and justice. And we will reach it, soon enough. Now I think you will feel great about your personal power to join the people’s movement and help advance our philosophy, vision, and agenda, to achieve our nirvana. There is no better choice, right?
I have an addition to your recent arguments against the elite establishment’s mass spying racket. It is not only I but all of the people’s movement that brings you this addition. It is widely understood among the people that the elite agenda is to enslave the people to build empires for elites to indulge their sociopathic egos. Thus it is easy for the people to see the connection between the elites’ mass spying racket and the elites’ massive racket to hook the people on TeeVee. Not only those rackets, but dozens of other programs of command/control over the people are similarly connected together in the whole of the elite enterprise.
Hooking the people on TeeVee seems rather arbitrary as a conscious goal. But most of modern elites’ mechanisms of oppression are packaged as benefits for the people carrying the hidden baggage of massive zero-sum benefits for elites. These mechanisms are not carefully designed at all but are rather dull, blunt instruments of oppression.
The TeeVee and all telecomm devices are seen as tools by various groups to serve their specific agendas. The people see all tools as means to achieve the people’s agenda which is limited to what best supports the people’s better interests, including universal enlightenment, solidarity, equity and justice. So the TeeVee becomes a source of inspiring information by/for the people. The people limit our usage of tools to specifically exclude what erodes, obscures, dilutes, or destroys our better interests. Thus TeeVee and all tools should be limited to those uses which advance the people’s agenda as such.
The elites see all tools as means to achieve their agenda of enslaving the people to elite rule. Thus, under elite rule, TeeVee supplants/destroys healthy social interactions among the people, and supplies massive doses of propaganda influence enslaving the people to material consumption, and thereby to elite rule. Massive delusions must prevail among media production slaves. This is among numerous tangled and twisted wreckages of the people’s magnificent potential that prevails under elite rule.
The purpose of this message is to help the people tie all of the elite initiatives together into one rotten lump, and tie all of the people’s initiatives into one beautiful holistic sphere of good. This makes it far easier for we the people to understand our world, and embrace our mandate to effectively steward our societies and achieve/sustain our self-rule. Jon the people’s movement, everyone. Thank you for reading.

Locally and globally, we do face real structural challenges to building a more fair and sustainable food system. However, possibilities are already present that can begin to move us in the right direction. At a local level in Hawaii, just a few examples include: making state lands available and affordable for real farmers, upholding the public trust doctrine in water law, workers’ cooperatives, research and subsidy support for sustainable regional food systems, food hubs for cooperative processing and distribution, supporting soil and water remediation, state ag parks, food assistance programs, local food procurement policies, waste reduction and recycling programs, stronger labor protections, and regulations that prohibit pollution of the finite resources we depend upon.
The author I am quoting above is not conveying the people’s philosophy that underlies the people’s agenda, but instead she cites agenda items as if the people are supposed to already know how those fit the people’s philosophy. You and I both know that liberal media has never articulated the people’s philosophy/vision, so it’s not likely that your publishing such lists of agenda items is intended to advance the people’s agenda, is it?
So how would the liberals expect articles like the above to inspire and motivate the people? I think the liberals expect the people to be inspired to join in implementing the above agenda items without knowledge of the people’s vision, but with faith, hope, trust, that the liberal masters have a vision in their little heads, eh?
But the people are learning that we don’t need the liberal narratives that Common Dreams publishes. Instead, the people are learning that we only need ourselves, and our internal truth, out of which springs the people’s vision, shared among all the people. Out of our vision the above agenda items spring, but in the people’s movement we carefully articulate to each other how this happens. We always ensure a shared understanding of the vision and how our agenda realizes our vision. This is how we achieve and maintain self-rule.
All of the above agenda items spring from the people vision naturally when we acknowledge that the people must control all facets of our society starting with the economy. We control the economy by knowing our true needs, and demanding production that serves only our true needs, thus allocating resources and setting market values that serve only our true needs. Thus we make the jobs available to ourselves that allow us to fulfill our true needs through our roles in supplying the market demands, as well as through our roles in creating the market demands.
We maintain similar control over all other facets of society. Now please allow me to provide you just a small snippet of one of my favorite elements of the people’s philosophy to further whet you appetite for it: The agenda items above, and the whole of the people’s agenda, spring from an approach in which the hypotheses directing the people’s investigations rest on a fundamental foundation of faith, hope, and trust in nature, the source of life, and the human heart, the positive side of human nature. This direction of inquiry leads us into investigative initiatives with great coherence and great results, thus enabling us to build more with less inputs, understand our world with less effort, and join in solidarity to steward the biosphere without elite interference.
Jon the people’s movement yourself and help the people achieve our agenda of self-rule. It’s our only viable option, given the only alternative is submission to elite rule.
The people’s paramount concern is achieving and sustaining self-rule before elites destroy us all in this nuclear-gilded age. We aim not to inflame fears but to face a reality that we know we can/must take control of, very soon.
Greenwald’s report is astounding in that it raises the bar on an unfolding drama that most everyone can understand will impact the balance of power in the people’s struggle against elite oppression. So the people are grateful to Snowden, Greenwald, Assange, and others for spearheading the campaign on the journalistic front. But the people are determined to achieve a long-term sustained change, a transition of permanence, not temporary reform. As such we must highlight what needs to change so that further journalistic efforts can be focused on pushing through permanent change, instead of temporary change.
Temporary change will come out of theses revelations that focus on a handful of superstars, supermen, the exceptionals. Permanent change will come out of revelations that focus on the people, all people, as the stewards of the society. The reason is simple: Because there will not be civilization until the people are in control of the forces that affect them. The people’s philosophy, vision, and agenda are based on this truth and others.
The way for journalists to support the people’s movement with their communications is to acknowledge in those communications that the society needs the people to take over stewardship from the elites. So a journalist can reveal Humphrey’s view, for example, with the proper caveats. For example: “Humphrey’s view basically echoes Snowden’s view BUT most importantly, it echoes the people’s view as the views of individuals can only support the people’s agenda if the weight of their view is roughly equal to the weight of everyone else’s view.”
Civilization can only be sustained via universal enlightenment, solidarity, equity and justice. Contributions are properly acknowledged when the intent is in proper support of the collective.
