The protesters throughout the world are starting to make a difference, and what is happening in New York City right now, just a few short blocks away from our greatest tragedy may very well be our greatest triumph…
Over the course of the past two hundred years, technology has advanced to a point where as soon as a piece of equipment is released, it is obsolete. That is how fast technology operates; and the other day saw the release of yet another iPhone…and it will already be obsolete. With all of the good that has come from technology, with all of the incredible things that human beings can now do as a result of technology, the most important of all of these is the ability to communicate anywhere in the world with anyone at any time in just that very moment. Neither a week, nor a year…right now. This moment. This time. And this is what Governments across this planet have feared for years, because my FINALLY the people…the great unwashed masses…those not in the one percent who control everything are about to put a stake in the ground, and say, “NOT THIS TIME!”
Today is the first day of the rest of the life of this planet and the people who live on it. We are now declaring that we as Human Beings are entitled to certain inalienable rights that regardless of our nationality, race, creed, sex, and sexual orientation must be guaranteed by our governments. Today is the day that the message that I am about to send across the Internet goes to you and yours…and then it is time for you to act and pass it on. Today is the day that we begin to act on these certain core Human Rights:
-Every inhabitant of this planet has the right of free speech; the right of which shall not be abridged in any manner by anyone.
-Every inhabitant of this planet has the right to a free Press, Internet blog or posting, e-mail, or other method of communication be it in print, audio or visual (or both) in nature without its abridgement and suppression by anyone. People also have the right to private communication that shall never be infringed upon by any government on the face of this world ever again.
-Every inhabitant of this planet has the right to worship or not to worship a Creator or none at all; the right of which shall not be abridged, restricted, or forbidden by anyone.
-Every inhabitant of this planet has the right of Universal Healthcare from cradle till grave at no direct monetary cost to an individual, outside of any taxes that shall be leveled by a Government to cover the cost. The taxes should be fair and equitable, so that those who can afford to pay more for these services shall; and those who cannot afford to shall not. Well visits as well as hospital and hospice care and nursing facilities shall never be denied to any Human Being ever again.
-Every human being on this planet has the right to a job that best fits their skills, and shall be fairly compensated for their labor in a fair and equitable manner regardless of race, creed, color, religion sex, or sexual orientation. Every human being has the right to join with other human beings and form Unions to represent them and their interests and negotiate unhindered by anyone in any manner. The right to work and have a job is a guarantee of full employment and usage of all human beings on this planet to further our knowledge and our souls as well as further our ability to aid one another in survival.
-Every human being on this planet has the right to a roof over their head and food in their belly. No human being will ever go to sleep hungry and in the rain ever again. We will all share our food supplies with one another so that NOT A SINGLE PERSON DIES FROM STARVATION WITHIN A DECADE.
-Every Human Being on this planet has the right to a free education up to and including the Baccalaureate Level. The right to and access to a free education shall NEVER be restricted by anyone.
-Every human being has the right to due process of justice in his or her respective nation; and every person within its borders should obey the laws of that nation. Dissatisfaction with a law or set of laws should be addressed through the voting process or a peacefully organized protest or other means of redressing the government. That government shall not impinge upon the right to redressing grievances of the individual against their government.
-Every human being on this planet has the right to attain and advance his or her destinies, so long as there is no harm to another human being in any manner in the process of self-discovery.
-Every human being on this planet has the right to love another human being, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, and sex. Sexual orientation- be it heterosexual, gay, lesbian, transgendered, or transsexual shall never disqualify a person from a job, place in the community, or engaging in marriage. The rights and benefits of the state of matrimony shall be equal among all, and never denied nor segregated in any manner by any Government.
-Every human being on this planet has the right to state of grace and redemption
-Every human being on this planet has the right to peace. A person has the right to live out their lives in a state of harmony, within oneself and within a community and the community of nations.
-Most importantly, every person on this planet has the right to be free from any state of war declared by a government upon another or a group of people upon another.
-We have the right to a world free of nuclear, biological, and conventional weapons.
Enforcement of these rights shall be guaranteed by the United Nations and its member states, and protected by it.
The time has come for Humanity to awaken its inner consciousness, and free of obstacles to peace and harmony; food and shelter; a job and medical care move the Human Race into a new age of enlightenment, both practical and spiritual. This will allow all of us to live our lives free of the day-to-day fight for survival and allow humanity to truly reach its potential as sentient creatures who will then have the beginnings of a big dream: to walk amongst the stars like giants, confident in all of us as a whole, respecting each other as individuals and as a collective.
I pledge myself to follow these rights as an individual, and do all within my power for as long as I live to see them come to fruition by doing whatever I can to ensure the completion of The Rights Of The Human Being.
Respectfully submitted on this 5th day of October, 2011,

“They do not seek conformity. They do not surrender. Out of their differences comes symmetry, their unique capacity to fight against impossible odds. Hurt them, and they only come back stronger. The passions we deplore have taken them to their place among the stars, and will propel them to a great destiny. Their only weakness is that they do not recognise their own greatness. They forget that they have come to this place through two million years of evolution, struggle and blood. They are better than they think, and nobler than they know. They carry within them the capacity to walk among the stars like giants. They are the future and we have much to learn from them.” – Ambassador Delenn: (referring to humanity) on “Babylon 5” (J. Michael Straczinski)
Special Note: Despite my PTSD, my wife and I are talking about joining the protestors on Saturday afternoon to show our solidarity and support. I may be eating Xanax like M&Ms, but this is too important to sit on the sidelines and just watch. Even if it is joining the crowd that remain in the park while others march elsewhere. I could never live with myself if I missed this opportunity. I invite our friends and family to join us in this important endeavor.
