What is this all about?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Has our form of Governance become destructive to the majority?  If so how shall we work to change our government?  What would a future with a different form of government, economy, social order look?  Where is our current governance taking us?

Once a week I publish an installment in the story.  This is followed by the Concepts Behind the Fiction section.  This section is filled with information and links for you to investigate.

About a week after I publish on this site, I will publish on The Daily Kos, Z Communications and here.  Check my Links button on my website to connect to one of these discussions. These posting will happen simultaneously and on a Saturday or Monday afternoon (depending on which day of the week I have off from my paying job).  The day of the posting will be announced on my website. I will make myself available to moderate a discussion and for comments and questions during that time.

A running Post of what readers think are the most important issues for our future and how to get to the future we want will then be created as part of these discussions.

If you are coming to this blog in the middle then check out the Characters List and the Plot Summary pages.

  1. You seem to be eanest and highly organized.  Your website is a week old and has a poem and two longer pieces.  You show a knowlege of Tolkien metaphors that may be more based on the movies than the books.

    Umm… this seems to be a representation of Z Communications that will seem somewhat familiar to users here, I didn’t go looking for any articles of yours.

    We’re open to all kinds of stuff here, including fiction which should be obvious or clearly labled.  No kos bashing.  No I/P.  No outing.

    Conspiracy theories?

    Completely True!

    Your audience is what you make it, for the most part we’re easy to get along with.

  2. reached that point, nor are we very likely to under this administration.

    After all the Founders were very clear that they were engaging in both revolution and treason. That they felt justified and were willing to say so is to their great credit, but they did not flinch from the facts of the act.

    Are you ready to declare rebellion and be a traitor for the greater good? You don’t have to answer that, but it is a question that many more people would have to answer in the affirmative before it would in any way be practical as it was in 1776. Given the huge number of citizens compared to Revolutionary time, we would have to have an equally huge number to achieve that change.
