A Constitution for the Voluntary System
Readers may be pleasantly surprised, as this article should be brief and to the point. We need to set some basics intended to open the door to discussion. I am not even certain that we want or need a Constitution for a Voluntary System, but probably few people can grasp how to function without a Constitution to cling to!
America’s existing Constitution has failed to protect the Liberty of the people, to such extent that over 232 years the government created thereby has been turned from our protector to a tyrant far beyond reach of the citizenry. If you think otherwise, you have paid no attention to it’s being overtaken by the insane immorality of progressive non-thinking.
This is not something new, the Constitution has been destroyed, one word at a time, over all the years since it was enacted. Enacted, yes, by noble men who said far too much and failed to make it clear and absolute.
People continue to argue about the “intent of the founders”; what a waste of time! Intents were not written into the Constitution, they were just noise and can never be anything more. If written in a way not clear and absolute to everyone, the door is open to play word games, and to spin anything from noble prose to devastating harm to the citizenry.
This is precisely what has happened to America. Even before the Constitution could be ratified, it was necessary to Amend the thing 10 times, called the “Bill of Rights”. Since then, 17 more Amendments have been passed, with one repealed. Were America to somehow survive this collapse, this will continue ad nauseum.
The problem stems from a basic breach of principle:
RIGHTS: Artificial non-living Entities such as governments, organizations, corporations, etc. can neither claim to own nor have any rightful power to negate or detract from those Natural Rights of any Man. This one principle does, in itself, refute the entire justification for EVER AGAIN creating a Government of Force.
The ONLY proper objective was the formation of a Union of the several States, a joining for the express purpose of defending the Union from harmful intrusion by outsiders. Having done just that, the founders should have signed off and gone home to sleep it off.
The KEY missing element from our present Constitution was banning Government Force. If we fail to include that ban in very absolute terms, do we not doom the citizens to more of the same old thing?
Why the States would have ratified the thing is incomprehensible to me! With and upon their ratification the States ceded all control of both the States and their citizens over to the new Union which went so far beyond the perhaps-proper bounds of any Nation. It gets worse – read this as well: http://no-ruler.net/1152/constitution101
So with this, the door is wide open to discussion and comments.
UPDATE 13 November 2012. I must add a recommendation that you also visit Russell G Longcore’s website http://dumpdc.com, who is probably the nation’s expert on matters of the constitution and secession. Much of what I have said here and elsewhere found great benefit from Russell’s very intelligent writings.
