SPERRYISM



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 called "Super-Freedom".



...



Freedom Tools

They are:

1) SuperMedia - Obviates Drivel, Distortion, Omission & Deceit

2) SuperTruth - "Truth Engine" Replaces "Truth By Gut Feeling"

3) SuperCompany - Capitalism Corrected - - Don't Get "Mad" - Get "Rich"

4) SuperVote - "Vva" The Voter verified audit

5) Legislative "Brakes"- A National Referendum Reverses Unpopular Law

6) Intimacy - It's Time For Love 

7) SuperPeace - New Method "Gently Forces" An End Of War

8) Offshore Colonization - An Oasis of Peace And Freedom



Freedom Tools

Expanded



1) SuperMedia - Obviates Drivel, Distortion, Omission & Deceit

Purpose:
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.



How-To:
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 "Format"

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.

                   2) SuperTruth via "Truth Engine"

Purpose:
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".


How-To:
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 & 3.

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".

3) "SuperCompany" - Capitalism Corrected

Purpose:
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

How-To:
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".

4) SuperVote - "Vva" - The Voter verified audit

Purpose:
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 got counted.

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" secret.

How-To:
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



5) Legislative "Brakes"- A National Referendum Reverses Unpopular Law
Purpose:
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.

How-To:
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

Purpose:
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?

How-To:
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 War

Purpose:
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.

How-To:
There is far more to PeeCE than can necessarily be dealt with here. For more see: http://www.howtorescueamerica.org/PeeCE.html


8) Offshore Colonization - An Oasis of Peace And Freedom

Purpose:
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".
