Why and How I am a Committed Radical (21st in Series): Direct Imperial Government, Monarchy, Funds & Royalism
by Frank Wynerth Summers III on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 10:28pm ·
This Note will be about the first two subsections of the First Section of Article Six in my Model Constitution. For those who want to see the Model Constitution I propose as a whole you can go to the following link:
This note deals with a series of constitutional principles which are not well known or very relevant in America today. In this Constitution these principles will be very important and so they are discussed here. These principles relate to the financing of the Imperial element and the power mediated and shaped by the whole Direct Imperial Government of the Emperor and his House over royalism itself within the Federal American Empire of the United States. There are few things more useless than a model statute or constitution without understanding of its function and application. Where large and significant changes are proposed it is even more important the writer explain how various elements of the system will work together to solve existing problems. Somehow, the readers must one or more of these elements which may be entirely unfamiliar will work together in comprehensible structures to solve real problems. That is more or less what these notes aspire to communicate.
The Emperor will be a figure, post, status and office very distinct from any currently existing in the United States in this Second Union. It is subject to a number of constitutional principles not relevant currently. This revolutionary change which embodies the radical transformation which will occur when this Model Constitution is ratified and put into effect will affect the economy, fiscal policy and finances of the regime. These measures will take time to fully operate but will restore the United States of America to a secure financial footing in all probability over time. Among the measures which will create greater financial security and fiscal stability are the following:
1.This Constitution restores a metal standard at the basis of the money of the polity.
2.The First Executive Vice President shall have a line item veto to slim down the budget.
3. The Imperial Wellness Agency will set a floor against some of the growth of medical costs.
4. The reform of Social Security and related programs will bring those emtitlements under a modicum of control.
5. The Possessions and the Territories with their set-asides and constituional repsonsibilities will create a culture of responsibility and bring resources to bear while the government will denounce programs to bring about racial equality.
6. The Family Associations, Domestic Regimes, Bureau of Women’s Affairs and ministries and offices of the Imperial
Mistress of Ceremonies as well as the government denouncing goals of sexual equlaity will create a healthier environment which is more economically sustainable.
7.There will be greater accountability in certain areas of government which will show over time.
8. The idea of social obligation with wealth will be supported by the Honor Code, laws related to Manors and Ordinary Nobility as well as the institutions already mentioned and in time this will erode the most disfunctional kinds of free market behavior.
9. The goal of wealth within the constraints of society will be recognized as valid in a more official way and its infrastructure will be more supported and in time this will erode the most disfunctional kinds of economic levelling
10. Large programs will be sustained which push society toward growth in a more complete way and assure some benefit for all sectors of society and most individuals.
As these programs set in it eill also be the case that communities, famlies and other institutions will be supported in enriching life and increasing meaning in ways that are only partly measurable in economic terms. This will be part of the reshaping so that while there is upward and downward social mobility people will feel that they own a place in this society and certain qualities about themselves. Government may not shrink in absolute terms but it will be different andf in that different contect it will matter that “the king shall live on his own” is a constitutional principle. The Emperor will be an imortant figure if this stage is reached and when that occure it will matter to both sides that the regular budget does not go to the DIG.
The entire discourse much of our political spectrum will be truly rearranged should this Model Constitution be ratified and become the law of the land. The Empire will operate in the Constitutional Jurisdictions as well as in the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction and in many cases it will assist in the social burden and humanitarian enterprises that are well linked to taxation. Yet it will do so out of a budget which is fixed and not legislated and is tiny and by being entitled to make a profit on parts of enterprises which are also philanthropic. Thus the law and constitution will provide that those doing forced labor will receive a modest compensation as well as the intrinsic skills and experience. But still the empire will be able to employ cheap forced labor to bolster its legitimate enterprises in the work of ilicit migrants and convicted criminals. These agencies will be dicussed later. Some of their earning will go to their own families and to their victims and thus reach the neediest with income. The Enperor and his House would also draw some funds from this venture.
Every manorial fiefdom or fief-manor in the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction will have an almonry giving charity to the outside poor, a day laborer’s program for low paying work to those unemployed and able to reach them. These will not operate all the time but each manor will be required to publich them. Each manor will be required to offer a rental infrastucture of mills, offices and marketing, common pasture, a grand compost facility and other benefits to Serf-Pettyholders as well as a school, a clinic, a place of worship and a militia stronghold under their Seigneurial guard. The Serf-Pettyholders will pay into a placement fund for their children not able to have a pettyhold so long as one member of the family takes the pettyhold the others may appeal to the DIG to be released. The Seigneur shall pay duties and taxes to the Emperor and the DIG and shall have the duty top uphold ecological laws and preserve both a hunting and gathering preserve and a pure preserve for all that is not human in the region where such a fief-manor is located. These are the rules for the most common agricultural type but a grand seigneur who has two of more successful manor fiefdoms could apply for a license to entail a nonagricultural fief-manor in the same grand estate with the agricultural ones and the rules would be somewhat different for the urban manufaturing or other fief-manors. In return for all of this social burden what are the distinct advantages which a Seigeur would have? They include having a role in policing and the Courts of first instance. While the Seigeur is subject to DIG review and investigation he or she will have the chance to get their point of view into the legal record first in almost every case. The are entitled to the minimal rents on some and significant use fees on other assets and products of the manor. They are entitled to free labor of the serf-pettyholders on their own lands and infrastructure during certain seasons and to their service in the militia or if paid then in the Manor Guard. They have limited immunity which is till substanitial in tortious and criminal matters and mitigated punishment when not immune in domestic matters on the fief-manor. Serf-Pettyholders may vote freely in the Manor Council subject to Imperial inspection but they must abstain or vote as directed by their Seigneur in DIG elections. The released offspring of all such Serf-Pettyholders shal be US citizens under the laws and constitution relating to citizens. However, it shall be in the power of Congress to set their rights as citizens as regards elections, military service ans some procedural matters related to the Union. The Emperor and his House themselves wil be seigneurs and they are expected to support themselves largely on seigneurial income. Most Serf-Pettyholders of the founding are expected to be volunteeers willing to find a life more stable and connected at the cost of some mobilities and fredoms — it reamains to be seen how hard such slots will be to fill.
So with the network of Seigneurial services, care for working prisoners and distribution of their income, waste processing business, a transit and drugs related enterprise dealing with social problems, the network of religious entities overseen by the Imperial Chaplain, the Imperial Wellness Agency and their military the Emperor and Empire will seek to join and in a sense to compete with the Union in providing social services. In this there will be law and reporting but they are allowed to mix in tax funds, guild tributes and all sorts of money into the networks that provide such services. However, all this will be done to the degree it is done without any special taxes. The society as a whole will know from this Constitutiion how much everthing costs to kee this Emperor and House and that shall be the price. Thus “The King shall live on his own”. He may be fabulously wealthy or quite poor and it is not the concern of Congress.
This is an old system common across much of Europe a t one time as illustrated here:
At heart most Englishmen still believed that in peacetime the king should live on his own revenues. In fact, the desperate condition of the crown’s finances required urgent measures, but far from receiving any praise for his efforts, Salisbury after his death was described as:
The country’s scourger,
The cities’ cheater
Of many a shilling.
Between 1603 and 1612 only three years were free of taxation, and a particularly popular, mock-pastoral libel began:
Here lies Hobbinall,
our shepherd while here
That once in a year,
our fleeces did sheer.
If the Emperor and Empire were to grow richer and more influential over time the Constitution still preseves most advantages to the Union. Yet there could be more advancement of this segment than I foresee easily. What might some good results be?
Think of how among so relatively few holidays in this countries list of major national holidays we still celebrate Columbus Day. Banks and Post Offices are closed here in the United States. We do all that to observe a holiday that commemorates the man who in 1492 sailed the ocean blue.
The memory of this man and his ideals is not a hard thing for me to honor. He did help to bring about the end of many small and largish worlds and partial worlds of men but he also represented powers less destructive, corrupt an evil than some on the stage. In addition the man’s sense of adventure, exploration, faith and courage are admirable.
There is a great deal that happened in the years leading up to and following hard upon 1492. First of all there was the recovery of the Classical and other Greek Culture from the Muslim States in Spain which led to the Renaissance. Today we use Arabic numerals and there certainly is much that Arabic and Islamic culture can claim to have contributed. However the destruction of Hellenic Christian culture in Egypt and all of North Africa, in what is now Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Armenia and farther afield mostly was a transfer of a far superior civilization to the inferior and backwards Arab Muslim culture. The West was triply backward. Rome had never equalled the sophistication of the Alexandria, Jerusalem and Athens in their different ways. It surpassed them in some things but not overall socio-technical development. Then the relatively narrow and militaristic Romans were conquered by the more narrow and militaristic German Barbarians. The Greek influence from the East had helped to lead towards a new civilization untill the Muslims cut off those well springs as they destroyed what was a left of the great Greek civilization of the Eastern Roman Empire based in Byzantium. The conquest of the Muslims in Spain brought this scholarship back to the shriveled remnant of Christendom we would come to call Christendom. Many Jews converted because those who would not convert were required to leave Spain. There was a Spanish Christian King with a Jewish mistress who opposed forced conversions and was known as Pedro the Cruel and he was defeated at about this time by another Spanish Christian King. The good of this forcing of a single Spanish identity in formal religion that these Jews did refresh Christianity in the West from its Hebrew roots. The tragedy is the suffering of the nonconverting Sephardic Jews. The experience of Spanish Moslems mirrored that of Spanish Jews to some degree. The possibly Italo-Spanish Columbus of mixed Jewish and Latin descent came from all this to bring forth a new world off opportunity. The modern world is probably much better than it would have been had he not succeeded. Had he not succeeded then a much more violent, paranoid and desperate Muslim or Christian civilization would have succeeded decades later. Latin America remains a mix of Aboriginal American cultures and Latin Cultures as well as a genetic mix. Without Columbus and his ideals there would have been a more destructive approach in a few years I feel certain. I am not uncritical of his legacy but I still believe in civilization and he was a man committed to civilization. Never was mere selfishness, cowardice nor greed enough to shape his life. He was an imperfect man struggling to do good in an imperfect world. He sometimes struggled to do things less clearly good. However, he never fell away from seeking after true greatness.
We need people of the caliber of Columbus today. When we celebrate Columbus we are celebrating his patroness in official planning and licenses and his financier Queen Isabela. She did a great deal to make the unimaiginable potnetial of a practical dreamer real in ways that royals with extra cash do more often and more effectively than almost anyone migh imagine these days and which few other players in society ever do. The Empreror, EMpress and others will be able to think of the whole interest of socirty when they have avialble wealth to invest and be able to join this common good to their own interests. We need quests pursued to spectacular results. However, we have to have the Isabellas who will relive the legacy of the Spanish Queen who supported him…
This Constitution is definitely an attack on money as the sole standard joining all excellence in our society and yet I believe our money system will be stronger. The Spartans were vastly more radical in theianti-money views than thios constitution but there are connections. It is important to remember that Sparta was never very poor nor a fiscal disaster. Oddly enough their greatest trouble were military ones although they were the most learned warriors and best trained fighting men in the west at that time. Let us remeber their view that money isn’t everything before we leave this topic.
There will be some inconvenience if this is done. But money flows too conveniently now. Let us look at the opposite Spartan extreme for a reference:
The link to this site is: http://www.laconia.org/sparti_h_1.htm
“One reason why wealth was less desirable lay in the fact that Sparta’s authorities refused to adopt the system of making silver into coins in the manner of other Greek cities. Instead she continued to use unwieldy iron bars for money. The historian Xenophon commented that ‘ a thousand drachmas’ worth would fill a wagon’.Spartans were also forbidden to travel abroad , except on state instructions, and foreigners were not admitted to Sparta without supplying a very good reason for doing so . This was to prevent the citizens from being corrupted by foreign ideas and morality. “
I am not advocating any of that behavior but it was a society with a monetary policy that worked while many have failed with a failed policy. I do not advocate the Spartan approach or the very different return to the gold standard. However, some do advocate it today. “There is no reason, technically or economically, why the world today, even with its countless wide-ranging and complex commercial transactions, could not return to the gold standard and operate with gold money. The major obstacle is ideological.” See the link: http://www.thefreemanonline.org/featured/how-to-return-to-the-gold-standard/#
I do believe the nuanced monetary policy I advocate is metalic but modern and will help. There must be a hard enough moeny for us to be just abroad and for the slower money flow of large sections of the Empire proper to interact with that of the faster parts of the economy in a fair way,
So that is what has gotten talked about here. Below, find the text of this notes passage from the Model Constitution.
**** ***** ***** ***** ****** ******* ****** ****** *****
Subsection Three: Funding and Treasury
The funding of the Royalist section shall not be subject in large part to the ordinary legislative process. The Operating Treasury of the approximate dozen major agencies of the Imperial Bureaucracy would receive certain fixed funds by Constitutional prerogative:
1. One half of one percent of all revenues collected by the Federal government during each year would be given to this Operating Treasury.
2. A fourth of any and all taxes collected in the Direct Imperial Government lands would be evenly divided between the Imperial House Trust and the Operating Treasury prior to any other claims upon them.
3. All those passing through the entries to the United States in the Royal Fiat Zone would pay a fee and all freight would pay an entry tariff to the Imperial Operating Treasury and the Imperial House Trust. A formula for these fees would be set permanently in the constitution. The Emperor would have the right and prerogative to make use of the labor of apprehended illegal aliens and to maintain an office of Liaison with Canada and one with Mexico solely to operate this program in a state of transparency. The Emperor would have no obligation to arrest or detain anyone and the US Border Patrol would operate on the interior line of the Fiat Zone as on an international border enforcing US laws of immigration. These aliens detained by the Emperor would be paid, fed and housed but paid less than other American workers for Imperial projects especially in the border’s Royal Fiat Zone. There would be an escalating system of arrests. One week of labor on first arrest, six weeks on second arrest, twelve weeks on third arrest, one year on fourth arrest and five years followed by legal acceptance as permanent resident aliens on fifth arrest. All aliens would be released with some portion of the profit they had earned when released, a portion equal to half the amount the alien received would go to the Transparency and Resettlement program of either Canada or Mexico or be held in trust until such date as they should agree to set up such an office and program. Labor would be forced but consistent with the health, capacities, skills, willingness and interests of the aliens. The regular US border beyond this Royal Fiat zone would operate on separate and parallel rules.
3. The Emperor and Empress would each have an ex-officio Estate and Manor and the Peer-Electors would each have certain covenants to entertain and support some aspect of the Household from their estates. The legal principle regarding these operations should be “The King shall live on his own”.
4. The Imperial Operating Treasury shall receive one tenth of the revenues produced from all foreclosures in the United States but shall at the end of three years of earning conservative interest remit half of these funds to pay off the national debt. This shall be both a tax and a penalty on foreclosing institutions. The Imperial Operating Treasury shall also remit one tenth of these funds to the General Treasury of the Direct Imperial Government.
5. The Imperial Services shall include a Stock Market Assurance Agency. Every share of stock traded in the United States will be charged a one percent SMAA premium. A third of each premium will go into a General Recovery Fund. Most of the rest will go into accounts attached to the names and credit of various players in a transaction according to rules set out. Each stock exchange in the United States will also pay one half of one mil of its gross gross volume of trade to the SMAA as an annual premium. When a company fall into nearly nill value its shareholders, employees and creditors will be entered into an SMAA Company Holding Venture. The SMAA will evaluate which of a schedule of options is best from partial making whole of all, to a minimal settlement and dissolution of all interests and to a rehabilitation of the company. The Imperial operating Treasury will receive one percent of all revenues collected by the SMAA as an operating fee.
6. By a set of laws set out in the Constitution the Emperor shall have a right to profit from anything left to waste and ruin in the United States.
7. Every person voting in a national election would pay a nickel to the Emperor each time the voter exercised this right.
8. The Emperor shall have fees and excises associated with titles from which he may derive incomes.
9. The Imperial Commerce Agency of the Imperial Services would be set up to pay taxes on activities of the Emperor and House in the free and private sectors of the economy. Both parties may engage in such activities and profit from them but when they do they can sue and be sued through this Agency within limits of protection established in law and in this Constitution.
10. Should any new lands be added to the sovereign holdings are other true domains of the Federal American Empire of the United States then no less than one mil of these lands in total acreage and one percent of all public lands shall go to the Emperor and all of these lands will be in the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction. One fourth of these lands ceded to the Emperor shall be be Fiat Zones which are his but under his most direct Executive powers and privileges as a the Executive for Direct Imperial Government and subject to administration as government lands. The second Fourth of these lands will be domestic regimes set up in autonomous fief-manors with their own titles but linked ex-officio to the Emperor as Emperor and to the Empress and such other titltes as there may be sufficient lands to afford. The third Fourth shall be bestowed by the Emperor with advice and consent of the Direct Imperial Government on new Vassals of the newly acquired lands. The last Fourth shall first be divided into estates with Baronial class tittles entailed which shall be tied to the true personal line of person who is Emperor not as Emperor in his case or in all other cases as a new baronial entailed estate under the Direct Imperial Government Code. Once set up these manors will go first to the Emperor, second to the Empress, third to the Imperial Mistress of Ceremonies, fourth to a seeded Heir and fifth to a Harem Consort and sixth to a member of the House or close relative of the King who is neither Empress, Mistress of Ceremonies, Seeded Heir nor Harem Consort. In the fourth, fifth and sixth places in this cycle the recipient shall be determined by whim of the EMperor within the limits described. The six element cycle shall be repeated until all the baronial estates are distributed.
Subsection Four: Crown and Center of all Royalism in the Empire
Provision One: Change of Style in Constitutional Jurisdictions
1.The GRIHHA must by a majority simple of a normal quorum reccommend a Constitutional Jurisdictions change to a fully royalist regime rather than a nearly republican regime in a royalist system and then the Emperor must approve it before it can go into effect. Then the Congress may submit a bill of Concerns to the Jurisdiction and they may respond and if they are not agreed to then the Congress may appeal them to the Emperor and veto the change for one year. The Emperor may make two ammendments analagous to the second class of Federal Ammendments from the Bill recommended and they shall become law by fiat of transition.
2. The DIG must recommend and the Emperor must approve a transition of a Constitutional Jurisdiction from an internal royalist regime to a republican regime. The GRIHHA must appove this and either the Emperor or EMpress may veto such approval pending both one year’s delay and a two-third majority override.
3. Royalty not in the Imperial House for these purposes in others shall include first and above all Jurisdictional Royalty not directly derived from the Empire which at first shall consist only of the Royals of the Territorial Kingdom of Hawaii but may in time include others as well. They shall be entitled to special recognitions and variances of family institutions and the exercise of Monarchy in their Jurisdiction and representation fairly high in the Council of Nobles of the DIG legislature. Royalty not properly in the Imperial House will secondly those Peer-Electors who hold full titles of the lower reaches of royalty and they shall exercise their roles as given in the Constitution. Both the rulers and laws of the Union shall take into account other royalty whether visiting, refugee, foreign or Citizen but their royalty itself has limited protocol importance which is greater the shorter their stay and less constitutional importance which may be established by settlement of claims or gift in recognition of rank and limited thereto.
*** ***** ***** ***** ****** **** ***** ***** **** **** **** **** **
If you have the energy to discuss this with friends that would be great. But the basic point here in these Subsections Three ” Funding and Treasury ” and Two ” Crown and Center of all Royalism in the Empire” of Section One “Monarchy” in Article Six “The Direct Imperial Government” is tied to the usual tension that for our system to work there are always different levels of government and these relate both to the sharing of sovereignty and the exercise of government. However, in this end of section one there are two very specific points. First, the wealth, estates, tiny percentage set-asides and other benefits due to the Emperor and the Imperial House are especially not subject to any ordinary budget discussions or taxations by Congress or any other Union elements. Secondly, The Emperor and the Imperial House are not able to draw on the General treasury or the Congress for funds except where extraordinary events and challenges join the Union and Empire in an unusually direct way in a common enterprise outside the normal scope of the Constitution. Thirdly, this Article assures that no understanding of royalism and these special institutions can grown up through jurisdictional royalty which tends to abolich the whole regime. To prevent this the Emperor and his House have some special reserve powers as regards royal regimes throughout the society.
For, some of this context and scope read the rest of this bold section and see a slightly different turn of some phrases familiar to those who have been reading along so far. In this Constitution the Emperor reigns over the Empire and has a very diminished role in the Constitutional Jurisdictions. However, the same person who is the Emperor is also the sovereign monarch of the Compact and possibly of Constitutional Jurisdictions in Louisiana. Beyond that the Emperor as Emperor directly exercises significant Executive power in the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction. Then there are Constitutional reservations and grants of authority and privilage to agencies of the Direct Imperial Governement through and for its agencies which provide effective connections of society’s democratic elements to its royalty through an aristocracy and minister tot the needs of the full society and of the inner Imperial institutions through effective national and regional organizations these agencies have specified ties to the Union but are administered under the Emperor and Imperial House as the Direct esecutive to which they are respond. They also cultivate throughout society a culture which is loyal to the Emperor and Empress as well as responding to the demands of a society with federal, combined styles, and a mixed government nature of our society. Specified roles in foreign relations are alotted especially to the Compacts where a particular relationship is most recognized and the Emperor appoints important figure in each of these compacts. While the Imperial institutions will conduct these and many other activities largely within the Empire Proper or its subsidiary and annex in the Direct Imperial Government all of what is done in these ways will have to be recognized in the Union as well and needs this Constitutional support and must find its role within the Union and Empire. Later in theses notes the discussion of the role of lthe Direct imperial Government continues with this Article’s discussions of the role of the Five-Fold Nobility in this Direct Imperial Government element of society and then goes into the democratic aspect of all of this. Much of all three aspects has a monarchic overcast in the DIG just as in the Constitutional Jurisdictions which retain republican forms from the second and first union there is a democratic hue to everything. So part of what is said in these two subsections applies to this whole Article and part is limited to this section on Monarchy. The two big he language about the Direct Imperial Government is most important in authorizing and describing those functions of governance which will form much of the structure of the newer elements of the new Constitutional Union.
I have tagged a few FB friends and I will in some or all my notes. Any kind of political radicalism at any time is a risk for those associated with it and so I am keeping the tagging to a minimum and while a great deal of endorsement will be needed to effect these changes there is no indication that someone tagged in a note in this series is actually endorsing the note. As always I am willing to respond to posted comments, chat and private messages.

Frank Kerksieck Batson This is somewhat interesting as a rant against the problems that we face in our country today. Our country has evolved into an albatros similar to the proposed changes. Louisiana has always been front and center as an incubator of rot. Who should be emperer and what religion should be approved?

Frank Wynerth Summers III Thanks for your comment Frank. It seems like it could be satire I am sure but it is not. Actually, this is not sarcastic. I always pick a few of those with the strongest prejudices in favor and the strongest against each note to tag. I am not trying to sneak anything through or live a double life.
This is a proposed revolutionary regime in which the vast majority of people would live in States, Territories and Possessions and which would comprise all the lands under the US flags. Except for some mechanical changes and real assurances of autonomy for each State a person such as yourself would likely notice very little direct change in your life. The Emperor would be an official Christian but the neither the part of the Constitutional Union which is really the reformed Union in the norm,al sense nor the Empire aspect will have an official religion. There will be more complex freedom of religion and less freedom from religion but there will be all the seminaries, temples, churches now.
However, a tiny portion of lands would be made up of the manor-fiefs mentioned here. Each would have an official religion approved by charter under the one single Jurisdiction made up of small zones and patches of land of various kinds, they would have a “Convivencia” for tolerance of those not of that religion but ideally these would move out to another Manor in a swap over generations. This small percentage of much less than one percent at first would be a Domestic Regime like many others. All domestic regimes even in the states (families, monasteries) would have enhanced rights under the new constitution.
Even in the Jurisdiction where the manors are there would be mostly districts not manorial where fully free citizens of the jurisdiction are involved in the guildhalls, compact assemblies and border guards as well as the District of Columbia. Finally the forced laborers mentioned as income to the Emperor only serve a period of detention for migrants (more with each of five offenses and then legal residency for a time at least) or in the case of convicts serve the middle of a sentence beginning and ending in their State or other prison. Some of the money they earn would go to their home prison system which would not have to care for them, some to their pockets in a small weekly check, some to pay minimum FICA payments, some to monies they would receive on release. With this and the stream of money to their family and victims they would have less need to repeat their crimes.
The first three articles and the notes about them talk much more about life in the average this is extraordinary part of the whole. If a jurisdiction wished to charter its own manors which is unlikely at least in most cases they would only exist in that jurisdiction and would have to be approved by the high standards of the Imperial portion. This is a very controversial regime if you ever get to read it all and it is not sarcastic. However, it does not propose that most Americans will live on manors. First the Manor lands must be acquired and only few lands are available under any foreseen aspect of this founding process. Most people will live in the misery, hassle, fun, wealth, poverty and insecurity we call the Free Market of today as it evolves….
