No Fees for Reading About Democracy in the United States

I just realized there are some very important news and educational web sites that have fees for viewing their content. I completely understand the need for monetizing content. What I propose is, that ANY CONTENT RELATED TO CURRENT or HISTORICAL DEMOCRACY produced in the United States of America be FREE TO VIEW or WATCH. This is the article that inspired my thinking. It was free, but what if I had no money and had already exceeded the number of free articles I am allowed? NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC on JUNETEENTH.

Why free? Because it is the FOUNDATION of this country. Citizens and non-citizens should know all about it. Anyone spending any time here should know it well so they can participate and enjoy it fully.

a World Plan

This is a rewrite due to lost data on my web site.

The idea of a New World Order scared people so they didn’t really want it. It didn’t ring out through every corner of the United States, that’s for sure. It had a nice sound to it, like a spring cleaning at first but that’s about it. We liked the idea of improvement and clarity, but not the forced labor or the potential of harsh management, even misguidance. No one wanted that kind of change–it sounded tyrannical to me too.

What I wrote about last month was the idea of a World Plan. A gathering of a wide group of experts to create an ever-evolving PLAN for running the Planet Earth as smoothly, efficiently, humanely as possible. Not just scientifically smooth, also economically. In search of greater predictability and the curbing of loses.

To date we have governments and think tanks, usually non-profits who focus on positive change or preventing too much negative changes. What happens though is that it is often the same group of people involved, in the same or similar positions for years. It comes across sounding like the same voice or voices over the decades. What I propose is the idea of a new global non-profit with a larger leadership and pool of talented thinkers that rotate or cycle through on a regular basis. A global forum that welcomes contributors from all walks of life and expertise. Instead of small rooms, or theaters of people, how about the size of a colosseum? Broaden our scope(s), a larger net to capture and harness the power of the sum total of the Earth’s abilities and forces–natural and man made.

The goal is to create a World Plan. A plan to manage the whole planet.

Last month when I first thought and wrote about it, I likened it to a marine navigation chart. Some people are going to understand every single line, dot and symbol. While others are going to get simpler things such as what looks like land and water. We all have an interest in our Earth, well all have a stake in it. I don’t mean a dagger, more like business in description. There is something here for everyone, and there is something about it that matters to each one of us. On a navigation chart we can admire the art and graphics, how long the distances are, even marvel at the importance of warning buoys properly labeled, lighted and placed. It’s a metaphor of what a World Plan could be.

This is an example of a navigation chart. A paper one is something every one can touch and feel, experience. Someone trained or educated can read it. An expert can help make it or add to it as needed.

Humble apologies if this is not as well written as the first time around. I don’t even have notes from it. It was off the cuff as is most of my writing. I am backing up this web site more now. It’s possible I’ll come back and rewrite some of this at some point.

Boosting the United States Postal Service

I wrote last month about things the U.S. Postal Service can do to boost revenue as it appears to be struggling. Here are some ideas.

  1. Raise the price of stamps, including the Forever stamp.
  2. Create a department of the U.S.P.S. that is fully digital and allows for its own levels of encryption for email. Branded, guaranteed to U.S.P.S.
  3. Create a NEW GOVERNMENT LEVEL postal service with high priority and best security. From post card up to something big like a bicycle?
  4. Create a NEW CREDIT CARD that benefits the U.S.P.S. and offers special discounts?
  5. A NEW MEMBERSHIP shipping program for individuals and businesses.
  6. A re-envisioned partnership with UPS, FEDEX and other services, maybe even Uber and Grubhub for same-day deliveries?

This is a repost and rewrite from scratch because some of my web sites were hacked a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t have an uncorrupted/usable backup of this blog site that included my most recent posts.

Alife Code

I have this little feel that I can create an algorithm for an AI life. Not a game, a thinking artificial life. Could be I’ll end up being more poetic and sci-fi… but at least I gotz a cool name for it!

What’s in code? What’s in a code. Sounds like a hot dog in a bun, but a lil more complicated.

Though I’ve had an awkward life, roaming around like a fool, I’ve also had some significant contributions along the way.

Alife Code. hrmm. Part of me wants to feel like a music composer at a piano, the other part wants to draw runes like I did last year. I’m not a computer, but like you I can stimulate my mind and memories with things that are familiar and vaguely familiar. Can a poet design a thinking pseudo-life?

(6/14/2021) First thought about it.

Any aware mind has one fundamental concept that it bases and builds its own life’s perceptions. Right and Wrong.

What comes next? What to do with a Right or Wrong. Do you leave it as it is, or do you change it–and in what way and manner?


The beauty of change is that it is abstract.

Your input will help shape it.

A thriving society is one that is ever changing.

That means we should all be participating in shaping it.

A little poetry before I get back to my law studies. I was supposed to be doing some cleaning at home but I got a honey bee sting moving my paddle board early this morning. I was rushing, normally I would have looked where I put my hand. The rushing wasn’t necessary, and it disrupted my whole day, setting me back hours of work when I could have taken 10 seconds or less to see where I was placing my hand. I messed up that bee’s life too. They often die after a sting is given. My big mistake of the day. Consideration, before shaping up a day.

An Allegory of a Table

Imagine a square table top, one that a single person can carry. No legs on it, just the top.

A man or a women carries this table top and sets ONE corner on a brick wall that is just high enough to be like a leg.

Another person is very wealthy and they hire a small company to produce a fancy leg for the table and this person adds this to a SECOND corner.

Another person is clever and skilled, makes a leg for the table them self and adds it to the THIRD corner.

The last person to contribute finds a nearby stick on the ground and sets it under the FOURTH corner of the table.

Which corner or person are you, and which do you want to be?

It’s not a trick question, it is an answer for you to ponder. How do you value yourself, and what role is yours that you want to be? Which leg is the strongest, fastest, most valuable? There is no right or wrong answer. This may or may not be key in how you exist in this life you are given. This is just a fictional story. You can add to it too. Maybe you are one who is going to have dinner on this table, or maybe you are the bird that visits the person adding a leg. It’s up to you!
