Labor of Love


There are some things that ‘all the money in the world’ is insufficient to compensate for the effort of doing… but take ‘money’ out of the picture, pose the same project as a ‘favor’ and most of us humans will happily do the deed for someone we love…

As science is now concluding (in a double-back ‘whoops’ — we made a mistake), the ‘true nature’ of human beings is NOT ‘fang and claw’ (dog-eat-dog) competitiveness…

That is, science is proving that we humans — at our intrinsic evolutionary core pre-disposition — do our best at ‘thriving’ (as individuals) when our energies are invested in cooperation, collaboration, and mutual (democratic) respect.

Think about this…

Really…

Think about what would happen to ALL of our ‘social policies’ (aka: laws, rules, regulations) if/when each and every one of us understands and acts on the tenets of this (new and improved) reality as truth…

Then think about the mandate of Arkansas Act 1190 of 2013 and ponder the question: What will the policies and practices of our justice system look like when we accept the truth of our ‘true nature’…???

If you’d like to take an enriching mind-walk in the garden of such ideas, have a look at blockbuster director (Bruce Almighty, The Nutty Professor, Ace Ventura) Tom Shadyac’s documentary “I AM” — currently rated among the top 25 best documentaries on Netflix.

Then please, if you would, give some of your best creative energy to thinking about how our justice system should work and send your ideas to me…

The Declaration of Independence as codified for enactment by our ‘we the people’ government in the Constitution of the U.S.A. created a geographic bastion of sanity exempt from the obtuse regulation of ‘peaceful assembly’ or ‘pursuit of happiness’…

In accordance with the covenants, liberties and duties vested in ‘we the people’ by the founders of our nation in their signing of these great documents:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” that we are each “endowed with certain unalienable Rights” which no man, agency, legislated policy or judicial due process has the authority to interdict or revoke and which, in fact, it is the ‘duty’ of the ‘majority’ to safeguard, preserve, secure and defend on behalf of ALL the PEOPLE…

Aka: NOT just the ones we ‘like’…

Being a ‘true American…’ Taking a stand for Liberty & Justice… Fighting the good fight… Rising to the cause…

All of it, in terms of the standards that ‘we the people’ are to hold ourselves accountable to, boils down to this one point:

As the standard-bearers of the ‘justice for all’ banner, it is our duty to ‘defend’ the rights of each individual to be whoever they choose to be, so long as their conduct is peaceful and does no harm.

And we have s profound duty to discriminate between what constitutes legitimate harm -and- and what we (personally) may find morally abhorrent because to secure the blessing of liberty for all, Lady Justice must be ‘blind’ to all such prejudicial belief, respectful of those ‘imbued rights’ of each individual to peacefully assemble with whosoever they wish and pursue any sort of conduct that leaves others free from harm and makes them happy.
