Think of Sperryism as a toolbox of "Freedom"
tools, all designed to "free" people and keep them "free". All tools
are doable by ordinary people and don't require permission or license
of government. They correct the overall process by which freedom has
been diminished, turns things around and leaves in place something best
All effective action begins with knowledge. Present media is failing
dismally to inform adequately. The only certain way to change this and
still maintain a "free market" climate is with a multifaceted,
"do it yourself" approach.
To maintain freedom, sources of news, information & opinion must be
so plentiful that they make overt "control" by outsiders very difficult
if not impossible. To that end the new SuperMedia should immediately
move to "neighborhood" based commercial Internet Radio and
neighborhood newspaper. Both are now inexpensive & viable due to
vast decreases in the price of Internet bandwidth and on-site printing
using high-volume "laser" office printers.
At three to ten thousand potential listeners (readers)
per neighborhood, out of a population of 300 million, as many
as thirty to one-hundred thousand new SuperMedia facilities could
be "on the air" nationwide in days/weeks.
The key factor for success will be a formidable, new
"talk" radio format modeled on the wildly successful "Twitter". It will
consist of short mp3 audio files consisting of "sound bites" of real
people, expressing their ideas, opinions, facts, poems, anecdotes,
advice, wisdom and even jokes.
Some will be "local" of people within the neighborhood
speaking of various topics of local interest. All will be no longer
than sixty seconds, preferably less than thirty seconds. All will then
be rotated using software provided by many Streaming Internet
Broadcast providers, usually called "autoDJ", that automates the entire
process to the degree that it completely frees a broadcaster to do
other things, such as; sell commercial advertising.
We are at a point where "error" could cost us dearly. This is the main
reason why so many Americans feel helpless in the face of what's
unfolding. They fear doing anything, because it might be the wrong
thing. Therefore, to as great a degree as possible, the knowledge
upon which we base decision must be as accurate as possible. Knowledge
must be verifiable, otherwise it is worthless.
Presently media (TV & radio) are our main sources
of "truth". If media, especially TV says it is true, it is.
However, TV & radio offer no verification of what they
espouse as truth. Many things today that (MSM) Main Stream Media tells
us, are turning out to be at least "wrong" and at worst; distortions,
misinformation & even deception. The citizen can no longer rely on
them, as well as the simple and often arbitrary "belief" systems they
now use to determine "truth" (gut feelings) in our highly complex,
technological world. It is essential that we now go to something
better. We must begin to rely on "truth engines".
To stem the tide of untruth a "Truth Engine" was developed a few years
ago named "DesCartes". Though still in its early stages of
development, DesCartes it is quite formidable as compared to the
average persons "if it feels right" method of arriving at truth. Though
DesCartes is ready for service now, when fully developed it will
provide truth to such a high degree of certainty, that it may
render deception "obsolete". It is being suggested here that DesCartes
or something similar should be used to "check" our thinking on at least
important matters. It is further suggested that DesCartes serve as the
"thread" that will complement & sew together Freedom tools #'s 1
To rapidly develop DesCartes to its maximum potential, the company
responsible for the most powerful Internet search engine in the world,
Google, is being hereby called upon to shoulder its massive
intellectual capacity to the task of turning DesCartes, into an
open-source "engine" of SuperTruth that will forever end squabbling and
usher all humanity into a era of "SuperUnderstanding".
The loss of "jobs" today is the direct result of the "fact", that the
value of labor has been quietly & massively diminished
through the little known introduction of robotics & automation.
Very soon the only way left for workers to sustain themselves will be
through return-on-investment, or "profit".
We think of ourselves as citizens of a "capitalistic"
society, yet very few of us are indeed "capitalists". The
truth is, that what we call "capitalism" might more precisely be called
"vertical-supercapitalism". That is, a very few people practice
capitalism to a "super" degree and thus amass profits so great, that
they seem to rise "vertically" to the heavens.
To correct this dilemma, it isn't necessary that we
"throw the baby out with the bathwater" and just completely do away
with capitalism. It is only necessary that we re-invent
capitalism. We can easily do this by each of us, operating "freely"
within the "free" marketplace and safely & inexpensively
redirect the power of capitalism "horizontally" towards
ourselves and thus begin to practice Horizontal-SuperCapitalism
At the website listed below you'll find an article that ran on the
Internet about three years ago. It detailed a means by which ordinary
people can quickly & inexpensively begin to earn their living
through "profit". Though it originally was written in response to an
open request by our then new President Barrack Obama for ideas &
ways to mend our economy, the "Plan" is actually more relevant today
than it was at that time. The Plan is simple & easily started.
A participant inputs only $10 a week & invests
mostly in "local" low/high-return "ground floor" investments that they,
the participants, would normally be using anyway. Thus they become
their own best customers. Profits are then rolled-over or "compounded"
into new investment which would cause their investment to grow exponentially.
After a time the participant might opt to cease working all-together.
With fewer workers in the labor force the price of labor (wages) would
soon begin to rise again.
Also, the plan has two features that together, it is
claimed, make investment "failure proof". The Plan rapidly turns
participants into capitalists, Horizontal-SuperCapitalists and
thus owners of their newly created "SuperCompanies".
The only means a citizen has to control government is the vote,
there is nothing else. If a citizen truly believes their government is
beyond the control of the people, the only possible explanation is a
somehow defective vote. Even "corruption", no matter how
seemingly vast it might be, should eventually fall to the force of
a solid vote.
"But", you might say "the vote is simply a transaction
similar to any other transaction such as; counting your change, or
verifying the balance of your checking account". Yes, it is, except for
one thing. It is the only transaction of any merit in
this country that isn't verifiable with, at minimum, a verifiable
receipt. Without that receipt, their simply is no-way a citizen
can "know" with certainty, that the vote they cast was the vote that
In other words, the vote is now and has been for over
130 years, easily rigged ever since the vote was changed from a
completely "open" vote to a completely "secret" vote just after the
Civil War. And, all of this is due to the fact that the
terms of this all important transaction between citizen and
government, cannot be verified due to its being "completely"
Recently, a new and powerful vote verification system has been
developed that is simple, easily implemented and can be operational
from "start-up" to "blastoff" in less than ten days. It is called Vva,
an acronym for "Voter verified audit". An excellent essay on the
problem and its solution "Vva", can be found here: http://www.howtorescueamerica.org/trilogy.html
Legislative "Brakes"- A National Referendum Reverses Unpopular Law
While a "verified vote" will place a verifiably elected leader in
office, there is still no way to prevent obviously unsatisfactory
lawmaking "while" in office. The elected official who says "yes" today
but "no" tomorrow might render the best vote verification system
useless. What's needed are "brakes", to halt the enactment or reversal
of law the electorate clearly can not tolerate.
The nation of Switzerland has had just such a system in place for over
seventy years. Indeed, many Swiss attribute the enduring success of
their way of government to this one feature. It is a national
referendum by which the people may easily call a vote on any law it
finds disagreeable. It is understood that the system is not used as
much anymore, as Swiss lawmakers have learned over time to not make law
they know the people will overturn.
Such a system modeled on the Swiss experience could be
most easily implemented by way of a Presidential Executive
Order. Indeed, an incumbent or even a successful
opposition candidate might be carried to the White House on the shoulders of voters if they
expressed, with surety, their intent to rapidly implement such
a powerful and already tested change. Another more difficult route
would be the Constitutional Amendment, something that would likely be a
longer & less certain possibility.
6) Intimacy - It's Time For Love
The tactic of "divide and conquer" relies on the ability to find and
exploit powerful and deeply felt "differences" between people. The
intensity of those differences can be especially heightened and
exaggerated if the society can be divided along the lines of
male/female, heightening the sex drive and spurring anger and rage in
both sexes. This tactic has been used historically to encourage war and
warlike behavior. American society is presently so divided in so very
many ways, that many believe it will soon come apart at the seams. We
are quite vulnerable. Being divided this way makes us far more vulnerable.
A famous man who lived a very long time ago espoused
an effective way by which anger, especially that of an adversary, could
be quelled. That man's exact quote was: "love your enemy". Would that
not work today? Certainly a component of the repressed anger many
(knowingly or unknowingly) harbor today must be their need for the one
thing most of us don't get enough of. And no, it isn't "sex". It's
"intimacy". There is a difference.
A purely sexual encounter with another leaves one
feeling empty, while 'intimacy' with or without a similar sexual
encounter, leaves one feeling emotionally "full". It is at that point
that a former adversary/enemy, becomes a "friend". Would we not be
better able to solve the problems we have before us if our society,
indeed our world, were full of "emotionally full" people, both enemies
and "friends". But how?
The author recognizes that to many this all seems quite "touchy feely",
but he also recognizes that, we are in deep trouble,
whether we know it or not. Our only way out may well be, to "logically"
reverse the divisiveness into which we all have been
maneuvered. While things may change once we solve the major problems
ahead, for now it seems that little harm could come from sharing the
cup of human kindness with others and thus heal our
differences and join us together.
While the author doesn't have any tried and true
solutions, just considering what's been said here may trigger possibilities
in others. In other words, this is one you're going to have to find
for yourself, or with others. Ultimately, the solution may come from
deep within you. Within your "heart".
7) SuperPeace - New Method "Gently Forces" An End Of
SuperPeace is essentially Sperryism - on STEROIDS! It joins forces with
"PeeCE", which is an acronym for "Peer Certified Elections". PeeCE is
conducted by inviting neighboring "peer" nations to send
"authenticators" to certify each others elections. PeeCE, it is
claimed, is can end war by moderating societies that
practice it. The framework of PeeCE also includes a provision for a
national "amnesty" initially, that could later be extended to other
nations if their desire is to also end war.
8) Offshore Colonization - An Oasis of Peace And Freedom
Seventy percent of the earth's surface is uninhabited water. Most of
the National/International "squabbling" is over the remaining thirty
percent. Offshore "cruise" ships (virtual "cities") come closest to
inhabiting this last vestige of "free" territory left on planet earth.
And indeed it is "free", by International agreement. The seas have long
been held separate from "control" by anyone, except those who navigate
their waters. As such, people seeking to escape oppression of any kind,
need only "board" even the smallest of boats at ocean's edge, and sail
'ho twelve-miles, to just beyond the internationally recognized
"boundary" called "International Waters".
The author published an "how to" essay on this very subject many years
