logical, rational and commensurate strategic, political, and organizing

GOALS for the 99%?


[Autumnal greetings, Maria. I sent this around the other week...still very

much under the radar.  If you can help spread, I'd much appreciate.

...Be well.  Best, RG]


At Wall Street and other occupations, there is much talk of "greed" and "corruption." Historical, constitutional and legal analyses, as well as evaluations of past people's strategies and organizings, are skimpy.

   

Goals are vague. Credentialed liberals are flooding the field with their red herrings galore -- from more privilege and subsidy to the corporate state to "create jobs," to "enforcing" Dodd-Frank, to REALLY dealing with "campaign finance reform" & "money in politics," to stock transaction tax, lowering CEO salaries...


Anything BUT explaining and challenging pillars of our Corporate State.

Anything but rethinking USA histories that brought us to this place.

   

For people prepared to move beyond "greed" and "corruption" -- like, for example, to USURPATION -- see below: an Act to Criminalize Chartered, Incorporated Business Entities. For starters.

   

Why not target USA and state law that has long enabled minority rule...Constitutionalized violence against peoples and the Earth...Denied access to commensurate remedy?

   

Could be energizing.

   

Keeping in mind, of course, that there is no quick fix. So we'll have to be creative, persistent...

   

See below, for AN ACT TO CRIMINALIZE CHARTERED, INCORPORATED BUSINESS ENTITIES. 

Feel free to circulate...

   

The time is ripe...

   

Good luck to us all, and to the Earth.

   

In Solidarity,

An Act To Criminalize Chartered, Incorporated Business Entities

   

a work-in-progress

   

As of 12:01 a.m. on July 4, 2012, no incorporated business shall exist or operate within the United States and its territories, or within any State or municipality.

   

As of 12:01 a.m. on July 4, 2012, all existing business corporation charters granted by the United States, and by all States, shall be null and void.

   

Neither the United States nor any State shall issue new charters for incorporated businesses. Any chartered, incorporated business entity  -- domestic, foreign, alien -- existing and operating after the above date shall be deemed a violent, criminal, and terrorist conspiracy.  Its directors and executive officers must be charged with ecocide, criminal conspiracy and crimes against humanity.

   

No directors or executive officers of unchartered, un-incorporated business entities which may succeed outlawed chartered, incorporated business entities shall be empowered, enabled or protected

   

      a) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine, jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had previously defined, privileged and empowered

  chartered, incorporated businesses;

   

      b) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine, jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had previously bestowed illegitimate legal

  authority upon chartered, incorporated businesses;

   

      c) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine, jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had previously enabled directors and executive

  officers of chartered, incorporated entities  to deny employees

  standing before the law and fundamental Constitutional authority;

   

      d) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine, jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had previously denied people sovereign authority

  to define and govern our work and workplaces, our communities, our

  municipalities, our States, our Nation;

   

      e) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine, jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had previously denied people of this land our

  sovereign authority to define elections, to define legislative

  processes, to interpret laws;

   

      f) by laws, constitutional language or doctrine,  jurisprudential

  precedent, custom, habit, or police power of the 50 States or of the

  United States which had decreed the private ordering of our economy;

  that is, which constitutionalized corporate directors’ authority to make

  decisions on investment, technology, production, destruction, and the

  nature - organization of human labor.

   

As of 12:01 a.m. July 4, 2012, owners of stock in previously incorporated business entities, and entity directors and executive officers, shall forever be liable for all debts, liabilities, assaults, denials, harms, invasions and usurpations committed by any and all successor business entities. The courts of all 50 States and of the United States shall not be open to stockholders or directors or officers or agents of formerly-incorporated chartered business entities for any claims whatsoever.

   

Municipal, State and United States officials (elected and appointed) who fail to implement and sustain the prohibition -- and criminalization -- of chartered, incorporated business entities after 12:01 a.m., July 4, 2012, shall promptly be indicted and speedily tried for the crime of villainous usurpation -- perfidious, felonious, illegitimate rule exceeding their proper authority -- as well as for the crime of dereliction of duty.

   

Conviction for villainous usurpation or dereliction of duty shall result in immediate removal from public office, forfeiture of all accumulated and future pensions and benefits, plus extreme public obloquy...for starters.

  NOTES:

   

  1. As the 19th Century began, constitutions, laws and customs in the

  new United States denied the overwhelming majority of  humans standing and

  equality before the law, along with authority to vote.

   

  II. As the 19th Century ended, legislative laws, judge-made laws,

  propaganda, armed might and persistent violence by the corporate

  class had  transformed the United States from a minority-ruled Slave Nation

  into a minority-ruled Corporate Nation. This despite valiant mass

  resistance and magnificent people’s struggles. The emerging Corporate State -- like

  the previous Slave State -- was impressively constitutionalized.

   

  III. In a Corporate State, law, culture, contrived celebration and

  tradition illegitimately clothe directors and executive officers of

  chartered, incorporated businesses in governing authority. This is

  usurpation. A Corporate State nurtures, enables and expedites such

  illegitimate governing authority by violence enforced by courts,

  jails, police and military force, and by historians. Less-overtly ferocious

  institutions -- forprofit and nonprofit -- routinely reinforce that

  reality.

   

  IV. In a Corporate State, law, culture and tradition enable corporate

  directors and executive officers to deny true self-governing authority to

  majorities of sovereign people, despite people assembling over and

  over and over again to petition governments in village squares and marbled

  halls.

   

  V. Like kings and tyrants before them, corporate directors and their

  operatives wield  the law of the land, constitutions, elections,

  lawmaking, jurisprudence, education and “legal” violence to rule the

  many. They lord over all species, rivers, oceans, mountains, Earth

  materials, biological and natural systems.

   

  VI. Elected and appointed officials in villages, towns, counties,

  cities and states and the United States administer this Corporate State on

  behalf of the nation’s minuscule corporate class. They do not have our

  consent.

   

  VII. Neither do they represent the majority of life that is non- human --

  flying people, standing people, crawling people, flowing people,

  creeping people. They do not represent Earth’s biological or natural systems.

  By aiding, abetting and enabling corporate directors and executives,

  public officials are complicit in denial of Earth’s living realities. Like

  corporate directors and executive officers, these government officials

  have been acting beyond their legitimate authority. They are usurpers.

   

  VIII. Corporate directors and executives, in consort with public

  officials, have long been denying sovereign people access to justice;

  access to commensurate legal, electoral, and judicial remedies. They

  have long been denying people’s sovereign authority to govern our

  communities, states and nation.

   

  IX. Generation after generation, this tiny minority has trained the

  rest of us not to see, not to think, not to act commensurate with Earth’s

  -- and our -- realities. This Act To Criminalize Chartered, Incorporated

  Business Entities is offered as a step toward changing how we see,

  think, aspire, organize...

   

  Toward changing ourselves.
