Barry Bright: What must be done – A manifesto of the ‘isms.’

What must be done – A manifesto of the ‘isms.’
Barry Bright May 12, 2015

This is in response to a group I joined on Fakebook and their ‘manifesto‘ of sorts. I’ve seen many ‘manifestos’ over the years. Most are usually interesting, and strike at the heart of one ‘ism’ or another.

As I’ve noted in the past all the ‘isms’ ignore those aspects of human nature/behavior/history they find inconvenient. I’m far from being an expert on every issue I’ve endeavored to understand in 20 years of being a patriot activist and I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I do know a few things.

I wouldn’t want to be called an expert anyway, or even a ‘constitutional scholar’ as someone once referred to me, as most experts I’ve seen on the weaponvision over the years were simply someone’s whore and most scholars are still beholden to one political ideology or another.

If I have to label myself I say I’m a pragmatic libertarian paleo-conservative populist. In other words I know what it’s like to yearn for the Liberty that was stolen from us before we were born and to be treated like a jackass while simply trying to ‘make a living'(loosely defined).

So here we go, from 30 years of attempting to pay attention and 20 years of waking up…

Eliminate the Federal Reserve system and all forms of income tax on every level. The income tax is the second plank of The Communist Manifesto. If they are stealing their money out of your paycheck before it even reaches your hands, you’re a slave.

Look at Wall Street and the inordinate/undeserved power it has gained over our legislative process and our economy. Find ways to limit such without destroying individual Liberty.

Cease wars for profit. Bring our troops home and let them hunt our real enemies, who have always been among us.

Repeal all gun laws on every level, federal, state and local. Prosecute for treason those who have passed them, attempted to create them or enforced them.

Set a definite deadline, within 10 years, of the end of all forms of socialism, including corporate socialism/welfare, within our governments. As the old saying goes, “If we can put a man on the moon…” then surely we can come up with a way to help those who truly need help without creating inter-generational parasites who are simply dependable constituents for those who constantly seek to destroy the Bill of Rights and control every aspect of our lives.

Establish basic rules for voting: All voters must prove citizenship via a ‘birth certificate’ or ‘certificate of live birth’ or proper immigration papers; prove literacy in English; pass a test that shows they have a basic understanding of the type of government we are supposed to have here: small and limited, with a focus on the Bill of Rights.

To further protect our ‘franchise’ and to prevent vote fraud all voters will receive a receipt with a number, or their voter number, upon voting that they can use to check their vote against a tally on the internet the next day. Election officials will publish election results at 6 am the next day but not before so all interested parties have an opportunity to check results online. This must be done to prevent the evil mainstream news media from ‘calling’ elections before the polls even close and thus affecting the outcomes.

Educate all law enforcement and military and elected, hired and appointed public servants that their first priority is the protection of the Bill of Rights and the expansion of Human Liberty. Hold them to their oaths at the cost of their very lives.

Since the First Amendment reads thusly, in part: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” No religious law will ever hold sway over the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights or over those who want freedom from any religion.

Since the internet is the single most important Liberty expanding technology after the printing press, as it allows anyone who can afford a computer, a smart phone or access to any such device to posses and use their own press as they see fit, all efforts to ‘mainstream’ the internet, whether by corporate or government entities, will end. This means neither Google nor any other internet search service shall use means to channel search results away from certain topics or information, real or imagined, factual or fictional.

End the ‘drug war’ and the ‘war on terror’ since neither would exist anyway if the ‘right’ people on all sides weren’t profiting from them. Let the governments pursue only real criminals who have actually harmed a person or their property.

Release no violent prisoners who cannot be trusted with weapons, as easy as weapons of whatever kind are to acquire in a free society. When felons are released from prison they get all their rights back since they have ‘paid their debt to society’ and thus deserve even their most basic right, that of self defense, whether from criminals in government or common criminals.

We must have basic, enforceable and enforced labor laws for the simple fact that many cannot or will not stand up for themselves against oppressive, abusive employers and will literally do or say anything to get or keep a job including degrading their health from lack of exercise, over work, repetitive injuries and on and on. The elites who run the corporations, from whatever country, have proven time and again they prefer desperate workers who will show up on time, do what they’re told and never ask inappropriate questions.

We must establish a basic easy to understand tariff system that will discourage American corporations from taking advantage of either foreign or domestic workers.

Since in reality there is no such thing as a ‘right’ to work to enslave others or restrict their liberties, deportation for communists(by whatever cute name they call themselves), fundamentalist religious extremists, statists and authoritarians of various stripes, corporate workaholic jerks…. shall be considered.

A recognition that corporations are not human beings and thus cannot enjoy the same rights as a human being. They may have certain rights as in speech, property, copyright etc. but they cannot put their rights or their desire for profit over the rights or well-being of human beings.

Establish real environmental laws that hold corporate executives and their workers personally responsible for the damage they do to our environment.

We must create a civilian militia force outside government intervention with the primary purpose of protecting the Bill of Rights from all government and corporate and/or other entities at all levels within our society.

Since so many in our society are mentally so far removed from reality and so physically unfit as to be useless in a national emergency, such as would be needed to counter domestic insurgency or foreign invasion by statist/authoritarian entities we need some kind of basic conscription and military training for all youth. In short, there are many millions who could use a drill instructor yelling in their face for a while and others who desperately need to be trained away from their mindless pacifism.

Reveal everything the governments know about the alien/inter-dimensional presence on our planet, in our skies, where ever they may be or not be. The yet simple-minded will scoff at this, but it could actually be the most important item on this list, especially if as some claim, our governments and corporations are privy to information and or technology that would change how we all live within and see the reality we exist in.

I’ll throw this last one in for fun, even though it’s not likely to happen, it’s nice to think about:
We should shut the district of commie criminals down and turn it into a museum of tyranny. Move the capitol to the middle of Kansas. Allow them to meet only two weeks of the year – Jan. 1-15, during which time they must sleep in tents heated by cow dung. No hotels, airports, bars, NGOs, lobbyists, or any other assorted distractions allowed within 500 miles.

I don’t pretend the above is perfect or complete, not by any means. But it’s a fun start. The sad fact is that achieving such in any near future will most likely involve doing what will be required, as much as so many are loathe to even admit to themselves much less publicly.

    Mr. Bright — I love your minifesto because it gets to the core of many problems. Now, I have a suggestion regarding your very important statement which goes to the foundation of the current unjust, oppresive, evil system:

    “Eliminate the Federal Reserve system and all forms of income tax on every level. The income tax is the second plank of The Communist Manifesto. If they are stealing their money out of your paycheck before it even reaches your hands, you’re a slave.”

    I would change “all forms of income tax” to “all taxation” because all taxation is theft. Taking a person’s money or property against their will is theft. Forcing a peaceful person, a person who has not harmed anyone, against their will is evil just like the act of rape is evil. The difference between voluntary relations and forced relations is just like the difference between making love and rape. Likewise, forcing some to provide for others is slavery.

    Regarding the fact that the law makers and their police are the biggest violators of human rights, consider the fact that all those parasites thrive on the loot (taxes) stolen from the slaves. The solution is to privatize all protection services. Replace the current system of one-size-fits-all with a system of multiple jurisdictions where everyone can choose the laws that they want to live under. For example, some jurisdictions will have the maximum degree of freedom with only the three natural laws that prohibit assault, theft, and disturbing the peace. Other jurisdictions can have as many additional laws as they want and regulate whatever they want such as guns, drugs, unlicensed business, labor, speech, etc. Everyone should be happy except the control freaks who want to control everyone.

      Ya know, the danger is getting caught up in the ‘ideal’ and letting it kill the reality.

      Or something like that.

      I’m not an anarchist, not sayin’ you are, but I can’t let go of the idea of some basic form of govt. and a real ‘justice’ system instead of the ‘just-us’ system we have. I think a handful of constitutional amendments and a real public militia force to enforce them would go a long way.

      But the fact remains that the ‘public’ can’t always be trusted any more than the govt. or the religions or the corporations or any other institution can. After all, they’re made up of ‘the public.’ That’s why the Founders attempted to create a system that would at least slow down the black train of tyranny until a proper way was found to deal with it.

      As far as allowing certain police states to exist among us, I can’t countenance that. We should route out all the collectivist(for lack of a better word) evil like the cancer it is and remove it from the face of the Earth as far as I’m concerned. I certainly don’t want to have to ‘show my papers’ and consent to a search going from state to state.

      If we by some miracle, and it may take one, we re-establish Liberty here, commiefornia, and a a few other choice places will have to be re-invaded and re-conquered. If we get lucky and take our ‘national’ govt. back politically, not something I’m holding my breath for, the first thing I’d do is bring the troops home and point them toward our real enemies, our domestic blood enemies.

      • Freedom_First

        “I can’t let go of the idea of some basic form of govt. and a real ‘justice’ system…”

        The good news is that everyone supports the three natural laws that prohibit assault, theft, and disturbing the peace which is a basic form of government based on the consent of the governed.

        “As far as allowing certain police states to exist among us, I can’t countenance that. We should route out all the collectivist(for lack of a better word) evil like the cancer it is and remove it from the face of the Earth as far as I’m concerned.”

        Some people want to live in a police state or a jurisdiction with thousands of laws and armies of police. In a system of multiple jurisdictions, they would be free to do so but they would not be allowed to enforce their laws against you or anyone else who does not consent. They could live in their own gated communities, stop and search each other for guns and contraband, and spend all day examining each others body cavities if they want. They would be free to live under any laws that they want. Live and let live.

        “I certainly don’t want to have to ‘show my papers’ and consent to a search going from state to state.”

        The solution is private property. A property owner could make and enforce any laws that he wants. You would not be allowed to trespass on his property or violate his laws while on his property just like you do not allow anyone to enter your home unless invited and you expect all invited guests to follow your rules while they are on your property. Live and let live.

        • Barry Bright

          It’s news to me that ‘everyone’ respects the same ‘natural’ laws. I see little evidence of it. Most would have no clue what that even means.

          No one is ‘free’ to enslave those around them. If I have to enter their domain in some business venture because I’m poor and have to waste my time in exchange for money they have no ‘right’ to force their police state on me in order to soothe their own desires for authoritarian control of others or because of their irrational fears.

          My life, health, future health, body, etc., is the most important and valuable ‘private property’ where ever I am. No one, or group, or entity has the ‘right’ to forbid me form protecting such as I see fit.

          A home, dwelling, office, retail store or whatever is a different matter from a back yard. Historically if one opens their home/store/office to the public, they have to respect the public’s ‘rights,’ such as free speech. Stores may have a policy forbidding cameras but it won’t hold up in court.

          If you have a ‘friend’ that doesn’t respect your Liberty in his/her home it’s time to find different ‘friends’: There’s no such thing as casual ‘friends’

            “It’s news to me that ‘everyone’ respects the same ‘natural’ laws.”

            I have never met anyone who wants to robbed, assaulted, or forced to listen to loud noises.

            “If I have to enter their domain …. they have no ‘right’ to force their police state on me.”

            If someone is in your home or on your property, they should abide by your rules or leave. Private property is controlled by the owner.

            “If you have a ‘friend’ that doesn’t respect your Liberty in his/her home it’s time to find different ‘friends’:”

            Agreed. And they should tell you that you are no longer welcome in their home. If someone was on my property advocating a police state or unjust laws, I would throw them and their free speech off my property.

          • http://www.freekentucky.com/ waypasthadenough2

            My body, health and life is my most important private property and it goes with me everywhere until they put me in the ground and no piece of shit has the right to tell me otherwise. Since I have to waste my time in exchange for money I have to go places where our most basic right isn’t respected. I look for ways to break their rules because their rules are less important than my life.

            In times of war it’s OK and accepted to lie to our enemies.

            There’s no such thing as a ‘right’ to work to enslave others…

    “We need some kind of basic conscription and military training for all youth.”

    That is what North Korea does. All children, and I’m not sure of the age at which they start to do this, are required to know how to shoot a machine gun and throw a grenade in the hopes of protecting their dear leader and their extreme surveillance of citizens type government. There is a very fine line where this either promotes violence or promotes peace. At any rate in the end mankind will end up in a perpetual need to defend one from another and not even trust your neighbor. This is one more step to which, in the words of God himself, the World has become all bad with only a handful of good people. I do agree with some of the suggestions in your article but some of the other suggestions can lead to very bad unintended consequences. We all want to have a society where liberty and freedom reign but we must also respect the rights of all Americans, those who want to own guns and also those who do not have guns in their possession. I don’t think we can just kill our way to a peaceful world.

    “Eliminate the Federal Reserve system and all forms of income tax on every level. The income tax is the second plank of The Communist Manifesto. If they are stealing their money out of your paycheck before it even reaches your hands, you’re a slave.”

    Wouldn’t it be a great thing to not have to pay any taxes? Yet, how would public infrastructure be funded? (Roads, bridges, schools, etc.) We are all slaves to this “System of Things”, and it doesn’t matter what state or country we live in, and hopefully some day it can be improved to where taxes are at a minimum and every citizen has the right and a chance to invest in themselves instead of being both a corporate and government slave.

    I reiterate, I agree with a good share of the subjects you cover. Refurbishing of government, the unjust corporate influence over all of us, etc., etc…..it is a good thing that you address these issues. That is what liberty and freedom are all about…..but in all reality this “World” gives us nothing but a “short” life and death. I look forward to the Real World promised to you and me by our Creator…..Thank you for your relevant contribution to a good discussion.

      • Gerard Heck

        Thank you for your reply…..I read some of the “must read/watch” articles and watched some of the video clips on your website. Some are relevant and true, some are not. I try to comment with what is true and tend to avoid what has been proven to be false. As I have said before, I am not happy with our government either and mainly because of the corporate influence on members of Congress. You and I are at a disadvantage because of this injustice bought and paid for by Corporate America. I do, however, like to drive on reasonably safe and “in good repair” roads. I like to have healthcare that is not limited to only those who are lucky with temporary good health (meaning that all will need healthcare sooner or later). We all know that the Healthcare Industry is part of Corporate America, which is the part I don’t like. I like the fact that basic education is available to all American citizens. I can see that you are strongly for individual liberty and freedom of which I am also. If I or you were the only persons on Earth we could easily practice these ideals at will but we are not the only ones here. I must respect all American citizens rights, yours included, to EQUAL Liberty and Freedom to do what they deem as a good life for them even if is not what I would consider a “good life”. Is that not what the Constitution guarantees to all Americans? Certain laws are also needed to keep a reasonable degree of safety, security and protection (which encompasses anything from your own personal space to possession of materials needed for survival). I get the impression that perhaps you would be happy to live in certain degree of seclusion without having the responsibility of shared benefits (difficult to do in the society we live in). You can however choose to live in perhaps a small town, your right to Liberty and Freedom, in the mountains, or wherever you like, where not enough people choose as a way of life….it is a very clean way to live without the noise, air and water pollution that is in large population centers. I share some of your sentiments but I have realism to deal with so I try to balance idealism and realism and do the best I can with it. Good luck to you, God bless you if you believe in Him and be the best person you can be……thank you for graciously allowing me to contribute to a relevant topic.

        • http://www.freekentucky.com/ waypasthadenough2

          I deliver freight across several states so I’m well aware of the need for good roads and the need to not treat employees like jackasses but no where does the u.S. constitution nor any other document that I’m aware of guarantee our happiness or our health.

          I’ve read the ancient tribal propaganda and no where did Jesus or the prophets say “Force thy neighbor to be a good Samaritan at the point of a govt. sword or gun.”

          You’re still in denial. You really need to spend more time educating yourself. My denial lasted 6 months several years back, but I didn’t stop trying to learn. Those who created or now back the ‘social programs’ don’t do so for our benefit. They use the ignorance of minorities and the poor to gain power and ultimate control.

          The most important thing to understand is they consider us to be livestock.

          • flipped54

            Yeah, I agree with you and concur that Jesus does not force anyone to anything, in fact He gives more freedom to choose what life you want than anyone. But He does point out the consequences of choosing a life of debauchery and indifference.

            Many employers are “jackasses” as you point out as I have witnessed the inexperienced and out of touch managers who ignore “in the field” performance verses numbers and the ability of some employees to fool such managers for long periods of time.

            I also agree with you that social programs can and do set the beneficiaries up for a life of dependence although some do rise above it and become productive citizens. But improvement is sorely needed.

            And, yes, Corporate America does treat their employees as if they are “livestock” and do not put much human value on them. Money is their god so to value a human being more than money is not a characteristic of Corporate America, a less than desirable product of Capitalism.

            Although I agree with most of your viewpoints you seem to think I am in “denial”. Not sure why you think so but that’s OK. You look for answers just as I do, my fellow American. Good luck to you in finding the right answers for all true Americans, I think, want that also.

    • Mumbly Peg

      man, that’s like saying we need to be careful about who we teach to read and write because you never know what they might do with such knowledge. sound familiar?

      • flipped54

        Hi Peg, I don’t think that knowing how to shoot a machine gun and how to throw a grenade has much to do with a formal education for the betterment of society. Knowledge is power in a free society. The only knowledge in North Korea is what the government wants them to know…..all TV promotes Kim Jung Un and the government agenda and virtually no outside entertainment or programming. Public and Private Schools here teach a wide variety of subjects although private schools have a more flexible choice of curriculum consequently producing better educated students. Neither one requires students to be machine gun and grenade savvy. Public Schools (with curriculum from Band to Senior Math) exist so that all may be educated, even those who can’t afford Private Schools. For the most part Public Schools are very good too with some inner city schools having the most problems. My brother and his wife both teach in public schools and do focus on student need and the chance for all to prepare for higher education. Although I don’t like the “slavery” of Corporate America, at least graduated students have the knowledge to freely start a business of their own and can learn constantly even after graduating from a formal education facility. I’m not sure where the idea of not requiring machine guns and throwing grenades affects who we teach what for in America all are required to have a basic education all the way through 12th grade and America already has 370 million guns with which to “defend” themselves from each other. If I am wrong, Peg, please let me know or if you see another angle that I missed please feel free to point it out. I just don’t see the familiarity of very young students freely learning compared to the military requirements of North Korea. Thank you for your valuable input to this pertinent discussion.

          Then you and I have nothing really left to talk about. Ever ask yourself how the government in NK gets away with doing that to their people? .. think real hard, something there is absent. Something that is not absent in the US. It’ll come to you, try hard…

          • Gerard Heck

            Peg, thanks for your reply. I already mentioned and answered the question what the US has that NK does not have and that is 370,000,000 guns that all Americans have access to. NK is a far cry from what the US in the fact that they do not protect the citizens right to own guns and do not allow gun ownership except for government and law enforcement. The extreme to which NK goes is not the answer to gun laws either. But there needs to be a sensible approach (meaning reasonable to all who own guns and to those who are victims of gun violence) to curb the scourge of mass killings in the US by fellow citizens. Am I not correct to mention this dire need to curb exponential gun violence? For it is a much worse form of terrorism than the threat of terrorism from overseas. Statistics support this very strongly. The chart in this article shows this stark difference.

            http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/deaths-from-gun-violence-vs-terrorism-in-one-chart-20151002

            Peg, I am not here to out talk anyone or make someone else look uninformed. There are tons of information on the internet that help us to decipher what is right and wrong about the subject of gun violence. With the continued mass killings it is very obvious that what is being done now is NOT working. What suggestions do you have to help with this problem? It is a very complex problem. The answers are anywhere from everyone having a holster and gun in their possession at all times to banning gun ownership. Of course neither extreme is the answer. Personally, I think the answer is in the structure of strong families with high moral values. And that would take decades to change if not centuries. It is a quagmire that will haunt the USA for a long time to come. May God rest the souls of all, including those of gun violence. God bless you if you believe in Him and pray for His Kingdom to come.

      conscription is what the usa did back when we were a free country before we dicided we needed a mercenary army that only works to protect corporations and hasn’t protected the constitution or the people of the usa since American troops won ww2……no American troops should ever enter another nation unless we annex that nation first….which should be done to mexico immiedietly and all Mexican forces intergrated into our military and all their government dissolved….a good cure for the southern border
      problem yes it would be great for the military to have rich combat troops as well as the ones who join to get money to feed their families

      Thanks. Nothing in there about a ‘war against the poor.’ Those waging that started the welfare state so they could encourage stupid, lazy people to breed and have guaranteed generational constituents. They knew full well what the real result would be.
