the People's Manifesto

Only through division have we been suppressed.

Tweet, Retweet, email, share, post on Facebook, Instagram, distribute as flyers, and read this aloud to anyone and everyone you can; those you think will join you and even those you think might not. The greatest lie that has been put on people since civilization began was that they had no power. Collectively, we are unstoppable.


Only through division have we been suppressed. Anyone with a platform needs to spread the word. We were divided years ago. Divided by our own group’s special interests. African Americans, Native Americans, Unions, LGBT, environmentalists, women’s rights, labor rights, anti-war activists and anti-corruption activists have all been reduced to focusing on their own agenda. A united, intersectional front is what it will take to win back rights for all. 


You may not agree with everything in this manifesto, but that is the price of solidarity. If you were offered 70% of the reforms you wanted but it meant 30% of the reforms you didn’t care about or were opposed to were also included, and you rejected the proposal on those grounds, did you really want the reforms you said you did? Through unity we shall win. If we allow adversaries to divide us, we can never win. We may win small victories perhaps, but ultimately, we will sell each other out for our own special interests. The way forward is through a unified coalition. 


We now are at a crossroads I thought we would have reached 12 years ago. If not now, then when? If not you, then who? I believe in a better world. If you are offended by the horrors you see, then you believe in a better world too. Cynicism is easy and we cling to it because we fear the cost of change. Yet, we pay in blood for this hellscape we call normalcy. The lie of powerlessness is just that, a lie. You can remake the world into the just and fair place you want it to be, through collective action. This is how we do it. This is what we demand. This is how we win.


Everyone has the right to nutrition, shelter, clothing, recreation, education and income. Now is the time for action. General strike! Here is every reform needed to bring about economic & environmental justice for the planet and humanity. This will be done by a stay-at-home work strike. There is no army in the world large enough to force everyone to work. If all striking workers stay inside, there will be no protesters attacked or jailed. No propaganda of rioting strikers or emergency laws declared. Do not work, watch TV, go online, shop or leave the house. Bring the global economy to a halt. If you don’t consume the media, you cannot be propagandized into believing the fear-mongering of the powers that be. No work and no consumption means all the powerful will be rendered powerless. The only way to hurt them is to hurt them in the pocketbook. Our nonviolent revolution can be an example that will be spread all over the world. Every revolution needs a declaration of demands. These are the demands of the impoverished masses yearning to be free:

Economic reforms for poverty and income inequality:




Use the increased tax revenue to fund the following programs:




Racial/Immigrant/Indigenous/Foreign/Criminal Justice:



Policing and Criminal Justice:



War & Peace/Civil Liberties:







Political Reform to secure democracy/ end corruption:







Surveillance and future tech economy:



Plan for online content revenue loss: 







The strike will only be called off when these new amendments are added to the Constitution. All politicians that have exceeded their time in office or aged out will step down and new elections called. Their failure to govern has made them forfeit the consent of the governed. A new governing body must prove it is fit to lead. 


Once the revolution has been finalized, elections will also take place for qualified members to sit on temporary citizen councils to review all government documents. This will be done for all national security and financial records to root out all corruption and mismanagement. Abuses will be disclosed. Budgets will be reviewed and voted on by the American people. When a newly-elected body is sworn in, it will take over these duties with full transparency. Failure to do so will result in removal from office.


The easy part of all this will actually be the strike. Understand, those in power who will capitulate to us will only be doing so with the belief that this is temporary. It is not, but it could be if we Americans are not vigilant, informed and dedicated to this new form of more direct democracy. 


Over time, more direct democracy will be implemented so our collective voice will always be heard. If we become lazy or easily distracted, the moneyed interests will devolve into the horrible conditions we face now. Do not let that happen. Evil will always exist but it can only flourish if good people do nothing. 


A population aware of the inherent nature of power's corrupting influence will halt its spread. The founders of America placed checks and balances on different sections of the elites. Balances that were whittled away over time to the point that any checks on each other's power have been superficial, at best. We live presently in an inverted totalitarianism where the illusion of democracy is proven time and again that an illusion is all it is. To ensure that will never happen again, we must stand together as one free people.


All personal autonomy must be respected. For if one does not respect another's autonomy, why should anyone respect theirs? Remembering this is the key to a better future for all. This manifesto has the ability to spread worldwide. For all free people of the world to rise up, throw off their chains, control their own lives and futures free from violence, poverty, ignorance, hunger and despair. America does not need to be an empire in decline, but what it should have always been:  an ideal to strive for and for others to emulate. Join with your fellow Americans and together we can change not only this country, but inspire the world to do the same. Demand it all. Don't settle for anything less than everything. Together we will win!

How will we pay for all this? Some numbers to share for skeptics:


165 million workers in the USA.



This equals $18.16385 Trillion in taxes.



That leaves $2417 left over for all 330 million Americans.



New budget adds $662.6551billion to it every year.



$98 trillion in private wealth is held in the United States. 



This leaves us with 20 trillion extra for fixing the immediate problems of climate change and global malnutrition/poverty. 


It will cost $175 billion for the next 20 years to end poverty worldwide. $265 billion per year to end world hunger. Without even using the $20 trillion extra we have enough in the new budget to do this & still have over a $1 trillion extra in our budget each year. This would make America the humanitarian superpower of the world and go a long way to undo the damage we have inflicted on the planet with our imperialism & environment destroying policies. It would also improve our reputation & keep us safer. People are less inclined to want to hurt you if you are feeding them rather then bombing them or backing coups in their country. Food for thought.



This is how you can pay for everything without even using Modern Monetary Theory (which can still be used to fund additional programs immediately). We have enough wealth to do everything. Full employment, end poverty, free healthcare, medicare for all, quality education all of it. Anyone who tells you we can’t, you can show them this as an example of why we can. Now these numbers aren’t exactly how things will shake out. Some will get $26/hr others $33.50/hr & so on. Still it shows what is possible with the will behind it.
