Success, or Failure of a Political Movement
How to peacefully evolve out of our current political, social and economic black hole
- By Bahram Maskanian
Success, or failure of any struggle and mass movement for raising public awareness to achieve political, economic and social justice evolutionary changes, directly depends upon the understanding and implementation of the following simple and easily achievable nonviolent civil disobedience principles.
Nonviolent Civil Disobedience:
Is the means of struggle for achieving political, economic and social justice transformation, utilizing nonviolent action as a strategy for reform, rejecting the use of violence for accomplishing the desired political, economic and social justice evolutionary goals.
Mass demonstrations alone throughout the true-recorded history have proven highly ineffective, for the simple fact that the criminal ruling elites could easily and patiently wait-out the demonstrators. Knowing full well that in a day, or two, they eventually have to leave to tend their lives, children, work, farm, etc.
Achieving success in any struggle, or mass movement requires far more than just public demonstrations. Demonstrations must be parallel with, or to be followed by unbending and long-term massive civil disobedience actions, such as, but not limited to: boycott, non-participation and non-cooperation, maintained and implemented under the guidelines of nonviolent principles.
Known Fact About Revolutions:
One of many well known hidden facts about social and political struggles, or mass movements, or the so-called revolutions is that they were all orchestrated and paid for either by a foreign power for colonial exploitations, or in support of, or by a rival criminal elites in search of more money and power. Not a single revolution has ever been truly instigated and funded by the people, anywhere in the world. That includes: the American, French, Russian Bolshevik, or Communist, Iranian, Cuban, Chinese, and all the rest.
The U.S.A. Democracy Show - Screenplay:
Democracy is the biggest scheme and piece of fiction perpetrated on the people of the world, since the fabrication of the other big fibs, the patriarchal religions.
A true Democracy is decentralized; unlike the scheme we call democracy, which in many countries translates to one time voting, followed by a lifetime of suffering, misery and regrets. But in U.S. every 4 years people are deceived into thinking that they are electing a new president, who is going to work for the people and honor his word. Not realizing that as so long as the screenplay, the producers and the directors of our democracy show remain the same; so is the U.S. government tyrannical regime. To evolve out of and reform our fascist regime the screenplay, or the U.S. constitution must be changed and throw out the current producers and directors as well.
Definition of Democracy:
Democracy is a dynamic participatory means of governance. Democracy is a dynamic set of governing principles and laws for establishing and maintaining social, political, and economic standards within a community, society and country. Democracy is formed and maintained by well-informed, involved and organized citizens, exercising their inalienable rights directly, and through term-limited elected representatives. In a true Democracy common people are considered the primary source of political voice and power.
U.S. Balance of Power: The System of Checks and Balances:
There is no such thing as “U.S. separation of powers, the system of checks and balances”. The Judicial, Legislative and Executive branches of the U.S. government are all on the very same tight leash, held and controlled by a very small group of estimated around 450 criminal ruling elites.
All members of Congress, with a tiny exception of a very few, from both political parties: Democrats and Republicans have their head deep into the criminal ruling elite’s trough. These Republicrats undivided loyalty and attention are all devoted to their master, not the American public.
Almost immediately after taking the oath of office, the U.S. President becomes the boss of his political party, which makes all of the members of Congress affiliated with President's political party, his subordinates.
As soon as the President takes office the first thing he does is appointing cabinet members, one of which is the Attorney General, in charge of the Justice Department, who heads the Judicial branch of the U.S.! Just like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop!
As we all know the President also selects and appoints judges for the Supreme, Federal and other courts. Yes, the Legislative Branch has to approve them, and they always do, how could they not! In another words, the President becomes the King, with complete control of the United States Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government.
Why would any one in pursuit of public office: Congress, President and generally any elected office, willingly spend millions of dollars to get a job that pays a measly fraction of what they had to beg, borrow and steal for, and accept large sums of bribe money, or as they euphemistically call it: “political contributions” to get the job, says it all.
There is no system of Checks and Balances.
Boycott All Elections, and Convene Constitutional Convention:
To peacefully evolve out of our current political, social and economic black hole we must boycott all elections, which would be peoples’ vote of no confidence and simple, but powerful proof of U.S. government lack of legitimacy.
Besides, even if we did vote, our vote does not matter and in reality doesn’t even count. Elections are part of the big fake democracy showdown. Why you ask? Because we have such thing called Electoral College. The Electoral College elite is a group of 538 electors who are selected to elect the U.S. president and vice president to office, every 4 years on November 4th, see U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 1.
Parallel to boycotting all elections, we must form constitutional conventions in every city and state across the United States to write a new constitution of the people, by the people for the people. We must use our energy and time, by engaging in a constructive form of public demonstration, to demonstrate for, and educate, inform and enlighten our fellow citizens: the silent majority, who without their participation nothing will ever change.
Keep in mind that there is no lack of environmental solutions, there is no lack of economic solutions, there is no lack of political and social justice solutions, the only thing lacking is peoples’ awareness and participation.
Ballot Initiative, or Referendum:
Soon after a new modern constitution is written, approved and finalized, it will be put up for the vote of the U.S. public as a ballot initiative, or referendum for vote and approval. Once the new constitution is approved by the majority vote, it shall automatically becomes the law of the land, without the need of 50 states ratification.
And on the next glorious day, after the public referendum, now that we have a new and approved modern constitution, of the people, by the people and for the people it has to be respected and enforced immediately by all governmental agencies. For example if the abolition of Federal Reserve is one of many evolutionary laws of the new constitution it shall be done, etc.
Definition of Constitution:
Constitution is a dynamic written social governing contract, a set of fundamental laws, preferably democratic laws and principles that safeguards and prescribes the nature, functions, and limits the powers of government branches, the elected, the appointed and the employed government officials, institutions, private and public entities involved with public policy making and implementation, and the direct and indirect relationships with the managing directors of the country, the people. The people, who have voted, elected and allowed the appointed, the elected and employed officials to administer the prescribed fundamental democratic laws and principles, approved and enacted by The Managing Directors of the country: The People; honestly, faithfully, precisely, and in a good and honorable manner.
United States Declaration of Independence:
"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."
“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will.” -- Frederick Douglass
