Having had an interesting conversation with a young lady earlier about terminology and the importance of perceptions of groups and mentality. Here are some conclusions about this matter. It is becoming increasingly popular when discussing specific stigmatized minorities to note the terms of perceived group-mentalities as the face of the group and to lose sight of the fact that this group is comprised of individuals. The method of language in regards to popular group terminology lends itself to a less HUMAN perception of the groups discussed. By groups I am regarding the stigmatized minority groups in general. It is the generalizing that is used to dehumanize these groups. To take the humanity away is a clinical approach that is flawed. These approaches may be used by those engaged in clinical research to distance themselves from their subject but never in social terms. The fact that we reside in social constructs is a fact that is nothing more than an extension of our humanity. We are a social species. To begin to define and to categorize with dehumanized terminologies is to encourage the loss of the humanity that is the essence of the group itself. To do this renders any complete understanding of the group a futile effort. This is something that is used and has been used in the past. Not only the Holocaust but also such tragedies as Uganda and Bosnia. It is not important that we cannot undo as it is to try and serve as guides in terms of correct social thinking.
I believe that it is time for the United States of America to be regarded as Third World Country.
“Third World” are all the other countries, today often used to roughly describe the developing countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
The term Third World includes as well capitalist (e.g., Venezuela) and communist (e.g., North Korea) countries as very rich (e.g., Saudi Arabia) and very poor (e.g., Mali) countries.
You must examine the fact that there is no longer a viable constitution within the United States of America. It proposes to grant rights to its’ citizens while in reality this simply is no longer the case. This country is becoming divided now along the lines of many other developing nations between those ” haves ” and ” have nots ” co-existing alongside each other. Welfare recipients who barely make enough to survive are being used as a source of slave labour as well as convicts by corporate America. The wealthy do not contribute their fare share to the taxes which should be based on percentage of income as opposed to the current system in use.
it is clear that the constitution no longer serves as a valid means for the citizens to protect their freedoms. Take also into consideration that the debt of the United States should also be considered equivalent to many Third World nations. There is no longer a democracy within the United States of America. There is essentially only a 2-party system in that country and they do not differ in terms of Foreign policy nor in regards to their own domestic policies. The United States has become an example of a country whose lofty goals have failed. This failed vision of the ” American Dream ” which has lead to the successive views of separateness, selfishness and profit mongering to the point that the social-net itself has crumbled beyond repair. The corporations and those whose interest is vested within the welfare of these corporate entities have been permitted to fragment the U.S.A. beyond the scope of the current political construct there to be repaired. These corporations have in fact already abandoned the U.S.A. through GLOBALIZATION in the form of outsourcing of jobs/resources to foreign entities. In this regard it may be said that the Corporations of the world are truly borderless and have managed through their profit-driven mentality to evolve beyond the primitive concept of nations. The United States of America is an example of Capitalism gone too far.
When you think of the United States of America – think of it as a Third World nation -.
In the National Post today there is a story about the Conservatives plan to Americanize our Criminal Justice System. Yet another example of their attempts to fix things that aren’t broken – it shouldn’t come as a surprise to any Canadian. –

Toews may push for easier dangerous offender labelling
Janice Tibbetts, CanWest News Service
Published: Wednesday, August 02, 2006
OTTAWA – With one of Canada’s most notorious pedophiles back in the news, Justice Minister Vic Toews said he is rethinking a Conservative campaign promise for a new law making it easier to designate repeat sex offenders as dangerous offenders and jail them indefinitely.
Mr. Toews, acknowledging he could have trouble passing legislation in a minority Parliament, said he may opt to work with his provincial counterparts to devise national standards for when to seek dangerous offender declarations under existing laws.
As it stands, the current law is seldom used and that should not be the case, Mr. Toews said in an interview.
“Prosecutors tend to be very reluctant to use dangerous offender legislation,” he said. “Quite frankly, in the last number of months when I have been discussing this issue on an informal basis with police and with Crown attorneys, sort of the front-line people, it’s been not so much a criticism of the legislation, but the lack of resources and the lack of a clear standard across Canada as to when they should be proceeding on dangerous offender applications.”
The Conservative campaign pledge, which Mr. Toews reaffirmed in May, would change the law to make it a presumption that someone convicted of three violent or sexual offences, regardless of their nature, would be declared a dangerous offender.
“Many sexual offenders are hard-wired, they are not going to reform themselves and certainly those are the kinds of people we have to look at when we apply dangerous offenders legislation,” Mr. Toews said.
Under the current law, a dangerous offender application can only be made at the time of sentencing for serious crimes. As of last year, there were 336 dangerous offenders in Canada.
Convicted pedophile Peter Whitmore, whose last conviction was for breaching the terms of his release for an earlier offence, is a classic example of an offender who falls through the cracks of the dangerous offender laws, despite a pattern of re-offending, critics say.
“The legislation is not adequate right now,” said David Butt, a lawyer and spokesman for the child-advocacy group Beyond Borders. “What the legislation requires to trigger the application is a serious sexual offence, and the past few offences have been in the nature of breach of probation, and being in the company of a young child contrary to the terms of his release.”
The Harper government’s promise has been compared to the controversial “three strikes” law in the United States, where repeat offenders are automatically imprisoned for extended terms if they have been convicted of three or more serious offences.
The problem with the U.S. law, Mr. Toews said, is that too many people have been imprisoned for less serious offences. Also, the automatic nature of the law eliminates discretion for judges, unlike the Conservative proposal that gives leeway for offenders to challenge a dangerous offender application.
In Canada, police sometimes notify the public, through a news release, when there is a convicted sex offender in a community.
We see several flaws in this approach.
– This classification of sexual offences is based on perversion (fear of sex is a perversion).
– There is nothing wrong with the current Canadian Justice System
– All consensual sex should be legal.
– When we provide extra powers to the government to strip rights from citizens they inevitably use these powers.
– The sex negative campaign of the Conservatives is based on a believe that sexual offences are the same as violent offences and the same as murder. This is a lie.
– This law will be used to target sexual minorities and no differences will be considered to the individual circumstances of the acts themselves. All acts are individual acts and must be regarded by the courts individually.
– To begin to base justice on categories of acts and to ignore the individual circumstances is flawed.
– This relies on the creation of CLASSES of criminals. There are no CLASSES of criminals. No good rapists and bad rapists. No good murderers and bad murderers. Those who try to make you believe otherwise are telling you a lie.
– The intent to use PUBLIC SHAME is the loss of the ability to ever be able to permit any criminal the opportunity to serve their time for the crimes they have committed. It is not possible to expect any individual to resume a normal life when they are subjected to LIFE penalties for acts which are harmless in themselves ( as all consensual sex acts are ). It is symptomatic of the loss between church and state to try and infuse again that sense of SHAME the Conservatives want so desperately in Canada.
ALL governments that are unable to maintain a separation between Church and State are the same. I’m sure it is just as pleasant to live in the United States of America as it is to live in Iran. This is no situation that any TRUE CANADIAN should find admirable. These CONSERVATIVE FREAKS do not belong in Ottawa but in Washington D.C. It is time to send them packing.
Today is the official launch of “PROJECT FREEDOM CANADA”. I have purchased a new PRINTER today as I have so much paperwork ahead of me. I did have a brief chat with a gentleman I know well who is more than twice my age and STILL very active within Canadian LAW – especially in regards to the constitution/Charter.- I have not decided yet if I will be challenging the ridiculous legislation – which doesn’t stand a chance in court – on behalf of PROJECT FREEDOM CANADA alone or if it might not be more socially palatable to FIRST create a coalition of organizations just as outraged by this GROSS violation of human rights. I have so much work to do right now that I am not really concerned.
BROTHERS never fear… PROJECT FREEDOM CANADA will begin the official process of arranging to cast this OFFENSIVE LEGISLATION out of our country. How long will it take? I do not know but the end result will be the same if it take years or just months. I’ll provide more information when it is time.
Definition, method and means to achieve my personal interpretation of the next level of human civilization.
Present technological advancement is progressing at a rapid rate. Through the examination of these trends – only in so far as is public knowledge without the insight of the many advancements still within the classified realm – it can be evident that the progress is rapid. Thus we have encountered a new threat to our civilization which is our own technological advancement. We have allowed our technology to surpass our ability to cope as a civilization. We must begin to concentrate the same efforts into advancement of our civilization as we have in technology in order to safeguard the future progress of humankind in all directions. To cease the usage of this technology against ourselves – to end the concept of CLASSIFIED knowledge – to obtain Civilization Level One.
I often use the phrase Civilization Level One. Here I will – as my time allows – do my best to define what that phrase means. I will add information to this BLOG from time to time. Suffice to say that we are currently at Civilization Level Zero. This is easily understood by simply looking at the current planet in regards to the construct of the human civilization that occupies it. This is in its’ present state Civilization Level Zero.
A level one civilization is more than just the simple construct – it is a view as a generally accepted philosophy of it’s inhabitants -. To accept that this planet has but a single RACE – that being the HUMAN race -. It is an end to all artificial barriers which serve as a means to classify, separate, marginalize, define etc each other from ourselves. It is an end to racism, ageism, sexism, nationalism, tribalism – to name but a few -. All the artificial barriers such as socio-economic class that we fabricate in order to provide a sense of justification that is used as a means to exploit each other. All of this will cease to be when we are able to obtain the next level of our civilization. It is something that most would regard as a Utopia but that does not put it beyond our grasp. It will take generations to achieve but I intend to show that it IS POSSIBLE and hopefully provide a direction that we must turn our thoughts towards if we hope to see this become a reality.
There are certain factors that fall into play which of themselves propagate the negative cycles that contribute to this view of separateness. One of these is erroneously referred to as ” The American Dream “. This term is a fallacy due to the fact that the ideals which may be ascribed to this concept are currently NOT limited to citizens of the U.S.A. or even of North America for that matter. This concept has become a way of life that is found primarily in Western Culture but is beginning to spread – like a cancer – across the social bodies of the planet. It is not just Capitalism that is to blame. It is this ” American Dream ” that is responsible for the segregation of the population vis-a-vis socio-economic ghettoism due to the inherent profit-driven mentality that it breeds. The ” American Dream ” is certainly a motivator for the population to achieve… but at what cost? The means by which this failed utopian vision has spread is consumerism through the globalization of Corporations. In order for the population of this planet to achieve the next level of civilization a new motivator must become the chief factor. It is the method by which the primary median of happiness and contentment is judged. The disaffected population which fails to attain the ideals that are this ” American Dream ” become the disaffected and malcontent. This ” American Dream ” must be replaced with a new value system that is not PROFIT driven but social driven. The next level of civilization is not a selfish one. It is the greater brotherhood/sisterhood of humanity that works in harmony as a part of the ecosystem that is our planet. To strive to accomplish things to improve the betterment of ALL Humankind must become the motivating factor. Civilization that remains in the rut of consumerism and selfish indulgence will never achieve the next level.
So what of the model?
This is not something that will occur within a set period of decades but rather a generational growth option. To begin to motivate the minds of our citizens to believe that it is at all possible. There are many current base institutions that must be radically altered or completely abandoned for this to happen. These are Religion, Micro-Government, Economy, Military. As time permits these will be clarified.
There already are various sources who strive to create a single WORLD GOVERNMENT. This is not the same as Civilization Level One. To bring about this end through military conquest or economic subversion/manipulation/control will not result in Civilization Level One. Only through gradual consent of these current nations – gradual dissolution of present economies – can Civilization Level One begin to take shape.
GOVERNMENT: Transparency is the method that must become the standard practice in terms of those who serve the public – especially those who administer public funds – in order to prevent corruption. This is only the beginning of the new ideology of greater public accountability. The means to achieve this is a simple one. All those who are responsible for the disbursement of public funds must be required to maintain a journal in the form of a BLOG. This must contain their agenda so that any individual who desires to know how this – minister for example – used the taxpayers funds will have access to this information. Thus scandals – such as the recent sponsorship program resulting in the creation of the Gomery Commission in Canada – would not have been possible with this level of transparency.
INSTITUTIONS: The present institutions will be transformed in order to adhere to this new direction. This concept of Civilization Level One. We will discuss the institution of religion. All religions will be considered as the SAME for the purpose of this discussion. Apart from legitimate charitable organizations/divisions all religions will be treated as businesses. They will fall subject to the same taxation in regards to all matters of assets including property taxes/rentals etc. As well as any profits derived from sales. Their present state of tax exemption must end. There will be NO religion applicable in terms of defining any official government body or works. The social significance of all religions will adhere to the accepted policy of open discussion as philosophy. Strictly a social group which may or may not be adhered to beyond the concept of terms; which may not be permitted any degree of seriousness and no social implications whatsoever. To many this will seem threatening. Religion has served it’s purpose. It was responsible for the growth of socio-economic constructs based on the direction which became institutional – these values/ethics/laws/taboos/- resulting in stigmatization of non-conformists -. All religions tend to follow the same path. To provide a greater direction beyond the confines of flesh. To serve as a mystery. They have served their purpose. So as all religions are responsible for both growth/collapse – as there must be collapse for new growth – the great achievements, atrocities of humankind. It was through these superstitions that institutions were created. That cities were born and society prospered. Now there is no further use for these superstitions as physics/science can be understood to provide a greater social legitimacy. To dismantle this belief the institutions must be dismantled. So we must begin to propagate this knowledge in order to guide the civilization forward in as many positive directions through the cycle of time. A positive generational growth resulting in the ultimate acceptance of Civilization Level One.
World governance will be divided between those set nations – although the ultimate goal is the end of all nations – which are at present categorized as FIRST WORLD , SECOND WORLD, THIRD WORLD and FOURTH WORLD nations. The present United Nations is not an acceptable tool to be brought forward as the means to obtain a unified government since it is based upon certain inequalities between its’ members. New world bodies that will be created must rely upon the bones of these present divisions – as they exist – in order to bring about their demise. So the United Nations will be dissolved. It will be replaced with a new World Council that will elect representatives from each of the 4 worlds – i.e. all countries/peoples that comprise the first, second, third and forth worlds will have elected voices to speak on their behalf at this council. It will be a fair council without privileged status to any group. It will not take into account population or G.N.P. or land mass. This planet must be governed in an unbiased manner. Central Banking will be terminated. Trading blocks – essentially all present economies – will be terminated. All of these regional systems will be replaced with world systems. This will be elaborated upon in greater detail.
ENVIRONMENT: The use of the planet’s resources will be managed through the government. There will no longer be any private management of any resources – oil, natural gas, lumber, minerals etc. – all these things will be kept by the government in trust to the people. These will no longer be for profit and maintained with the management of environmental groups on behalf of the government. All corporate ownership and management of any natural resource will be terminated.
POTENTIAL MEANS: One Method is the creation of a new political union as a borderless government. A Planetary United Party – governing through a Planetary Council – which will be created in each and every country in the world. As this party is brought to power through the electorate so will it become the government that ends all borders. Eventually this party will be the single world government. This will be brought about in time as more countries select to join through the electorate. Thus the gradual dissolution of borders, central banking, military and all other regional bodies of governance which will merge as a single unit.
One method is also to gradually extend greater planetary influence/powers to the Planetary Counsel – which is the one comprised of elected representatives from each of the 4 current worlds. –
