Here’s a thought. Our “Founding Fathers” intent when it comes to the second amendment was that each state, each local government in each state, county and city, would have their own “Militias” for the sole purpose of protecting the citizens of this country of ours, wither it be an invasion attempt from outside by a foreign power, or an attempt to invade, or change our country from within.
Since that was and IS what was intended in our constitution, let’s eliminate the need for our various national military branches, perhaps keeping a very small portion for training and support of “Localized Militias” and take our tax dollars and use it to build, train, and arm those militias at the state, county, and city level, for the sole purpose of “Defending Our Shores”. Again, wither it’s an attempted invasion from outside or inside, our militias would put a very quick end to any invasion attempt, I guarantee.
Think about this for a minute, I think ANY invading foreign military would be defeated very quickly by “Patriotic Militias”. Our “Militias” would have all the same materials and weapons that our military currently has or will have. As an example, my next-door neighbor whom happens to be a trained pilot, could very well be a “Militia Pilot” trained to fly, let’s say, an F-22 Stealth Fighter. As another example, the “Militia Navy” and all its military ships, would be manned by Militia members from many states. Your insignia or patch would include the name of the local militia that you are from, so each crew on say, a Missile Frigate or Submarine, would be crewed and operated by people from many states.
This is one of my, “Oh, by the way”, thoughts, added after my original posting: Let’s close down ALL military installations in other countries and bring our soldiers home. Perhaps we can give those abandoned military bases to the United Nations, in case they need them. In addition, let’s bring ALL of our naval fleets home as well.
In other words, throughout the United States, each state’s Militia would be organized at the state, city and county level, with ALL militias dedicated solely to “Defending” our country from foreign invaders and internal sources. Along with eliminating the military branches at the Federal level, we would also eliminate the Imperialistic wars that have plagued our country for decades.
If there is some uprising or civil war type of conflict elsewhere in the world, the United Nations would send in troops organized, staffed, and managed by all the member nations. The United Nations “Peace-Keeping” forces would include volunteers from EVERY nation, from every “Militia”.
Their sole purpose? To put a quick end to whatever uprisings or civil wars have been, at that point in time, or will be initiated in the future. If the country in conflict has leadership that is obviously in need of replacement, the armed forces, the “Peace-Keepers” the militias, would do just that, like removing cancerous tissue from your asshole.
Now, we ALL know that in the past 50 years or so, the wars that the major powers have been involved with, the war machine itself, which we call the “Military/Industrial Complex”, have been about three things, (1) Oil and other natural resources, (2) Maintaining and increasing the size and strength of the “Military/Industrial Complex”, (3) Increasing the wealth of the top one percent of the human race. Let me add a fourth to this, many of us firmly believe that all three of the items that I have listed, are all part of the top one percent’s plan for our species, and that is, to eliminate a major portions of us, leaving those who are left in control, and the “Sheeple” to do their bidding, with their version of a New World Order.
This idea for a new way of protecting our OWN nation, would have an immediate effect of greatly downsizing our Federal Government. This means that the government of the United States would ALSO have to undergo a drastic overhaul. First by giving the real powers of governance BACK to the people. I suggest, like so many others believe, having term-limits in Congress as a start. Giving each state the powers and control over the areas of our lives that affect us, wither it be environmental, human rights, drug laws, education, or other areas.
I’m convinced that giving the ability to govern at the local level, and eliminating the need for a “Federal” government, would give the power back to the people. Our individual tax burdens would be greatly reduced, and instead of sending billions of dollars to foreign countries like the apartheid regime (Zebraists) who have been systematically destroying another people’s way of life, that money would be kept and spent at the local level. Imagine your tax dollars actually doing some good for a change, AT the local level. Re-building infrastructure in your OWN city or town, eliminating poverty and homelessness, caring for the elderly, building new schools or re-furbishing the schools we already have. Providing free health-care for all, providing living wages for all. Sounds like a dream, but it can be done, and not through a redistribution of wealth, just using the wealth we already have that we are currently “Gifting” to so many other countries.
I also believe that the changes in our ways that I am suggesting will eventually bring about a natural elimination of “Borders”. No more “Passports” or permissions required for travel OR migrations of people to other countries, world-wide. You might ask, “Well, what do we do with regimes like North Korea?”. Simple answer, by including ALL peoples, regardless of origin, in the same basic rights that we all desire, like Peace & Freedom, the powers that need replacing, COULD be replaced, but in all fairness and reality, I don’t think that would be necessary. If I were to have the opportunity to sit down and have a discussion with Kim Jung-un and explain that he was no longer going to be a target of imperialistic countries like the United States, that he would be given the resources and technology to improve and assist him in making positive changes for his country and his people, he would jump at the opportunity to cooperate and change.
Changing the world’s monetary system. Of course I don’t have all the answers…..yet. Here’s a few thoughts however. Let’s say, you are a huge factory in Los Angeles. Regardless of wither you are a factory that is privately owned, or part of an International Conglomerate, each “employee” would be given a “Living Wage” to begin with, and not only would you, as an employee, receive “Dividends” from the profits, each and every citizen, man, woman and child, living in that town or city where said factory is located, would receive a fair-portion, “Dividend” on the profits of the factory, NOT the shareholders. This WILL eliminate the need for “Share Holders” and the “Stock Market” as it exists now. No more “sharing” of the wealth with just a few, but “sharing” of the wealth with everyone.
Monetary system. There still would be a need for “Money” obviously, how do you buy that loaf of bread or carton of milk. It’s structure and how it’s controlled would be vastly different. No longer controlled by the top one percent, i.e., the Bankers/Investors, Stock Market, and the top one percent. Perhaps this would be another function of the United Nations, a World Currency, no longer based on investments and manipulations, but based on productivity of the people themselves.
Since real wages are being given, along with the sharing of profits, people in general will have more productive and full-filling lives. Taxes being what they are meant to be, would be much lower, and spent on all the things I previously mentioned, at their local level. If you have a brilliant idea that becomes a product that people need or want, your new company from start-up to maturity would share the wealth with employees and everyone in the locale where you build your business.
Population control. Bullshit! 95% of our planet’s population is concentrated on 10% of the land, and that concentration is in and around 8,500 major cities throughout the world, plenty of room for everyone that is here now, and everyone whom is yet to be born. Our future will include thousands of new cities and urban areas. With the continuing advances in technology, eventually factories will become more and more automated, and the average person will be wondering on any given day, which golf course to play next. There no longer will be a vast gap in financial terms, and folks, instead of punching a “time-clock” every day, will be concentrating more on their physical fitness, i.e., things like eating healthier, living what some would term, a “Utopian” life, spending their days in tending to their gardens, creating art, music, literature, or perhaps spending their time creating new cures for whatever diseases remain, or teaching children how to be humans.
This is just a few thoughts I had today, and I’m sure that I will be adding to this. Please feel free to add your thoughts or comments, wither positive or negative. I did not touch on religiosity today, as those who know me, already know where I stand. For immediate thoughts on that subject, sift through all my previous writings on when you have the inkling to do so. I also am free to discuss the many topics I have written about by WhatsApp (it’s encrypted). I know this post is a long one, so, thank you so much for reading.
Thank you for reading this.
P. S. Being that I am an optimist, I believe that I will live long enough to one day hear my grandson say to me, “Grandpa, please tell me again what war and killing people was all about”. I believe we will find peace eventually if we can accomplish a miracle or two, or three. If you agree to all the wars, and you are a shareholder in several companies that manufacture weapons of war, it is beyond stupid, it’s insane, give yourself a Lobotomy. If you are a Zebraist, or support Zebraism, your just due is coming very soon.
