STAGE FOUR: STOP
or the right of people peaceably to assemble
The prerequisite to assembling peaceably is stopping the status quo. In order to peaceably assemble one has to discontinue normal routine and participate with others. People have the right to stop and gather with any number of other people in a peaceful manner, for any reason. People can stop their normal activity. People may change their plans and decide to go somewhere different or not to go at all. People can publicly peaceably gather to worship any interpretation of God or for no reason at all, whenever they want. Individuals and entire communities of people can stop, for any reason or no reason at all.
This was first
done by the original patriots at protests of taxation without representation
and all out Company monopolization.
There probably was no tea and little heat. "We have answers and we cease support of the
exploitation." They announced.
STAGE FIVE: ACT
and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
People have the right to holdevery individual and institution accountable and have the right to petition action accordingly. Every institution under the governance of the U.S.A. and the government itself is accountable to the people and the princilples of the republic. A redress requires a declared problem, a wrong that needs to be set right. The grievance is the announcement of a problem; the redress is the removal of the problem. Accountability is upheld; gatherings and actions take place until the problem is fixed. Until the grievance is addressed and the problem solved, institutions face petition for redress by individuals.
The government may be the cause of grievances; they are accountable to the people through the trinity of liberty. The government can be addressed to hold any institutions in its governance accountable to people's grievances, including its own branches. If there is wrongdoing, people have the right to ask questions concerning all grievances of any institution and demand answers and solutions.
Every institution in the U.S.A. is subject to answer the questions of people and to address their grievances. People have the right to demand change in the cause of their distress. If they do not get it, they have the right to act peaceably.
