We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Has our form of Governance become destructive to the majority? If so how shall we work to change our government? What would a future with a different form of government, economy, social order look? Where is our current governance taking us?
Once a week I publish an installment in the story on my blog. This is followed by the Concepts Behind the Fiction section. This section is filled with information and links for you to investigate. About a week after I publish on this site, I will publish on The Daily Kos, Z Communications, and Necrotania. Check my Links button to connect to one of these discussions.
These posting will happen simultaneously and on a Sunday or Monday afternoon (depending on which day of the week I have off from my paying job). The day of the posting will be announced on this site. I will make myself available to moderate a discussion and for comments and questions during that time.
A running Post of what readers think are the most important issues for our future and how to get to the future we want will then be created as part of these discussions.
