In the 21st century, do we of the First World Population (the 18%) have the abilitywithin the "Idea of the Human" (5), toset asidethestructural violence and poverty deaths, built into the global political economy under our name?
Do we have the ability to"Meet the Minimum Needs of All", (MMNA), www.mmna2030.org, through a program of initiation, acquisition and implementation of "inclusion morality" acknowledgingfor "you too", on minimum needs?
Are we capable of achieving it?
By and large the responseis likely tobe: YES, Ishall make the necessary adjustments if weare able tohelpeach othermake the transition.
The affective basis for such an adjustmentis grounded in the content of the message of Jesus the preacher in human form on the Cross, to all then around, and all else, later: "Love thine enemy; what is to be gained, if we only love in return those who love us?"
There is an enduring social contract embedded in this non-violent message that our consciousnesshas not yet brought to fruition, even as we acknowledge that its members subscribe to a host of starter religious traditions. No one, in or out of the Temple, Synagogue, Church or Mosque, is exempt from the benefits associated with the practice of this universal call present in all spiritual traditions, theist or otherwise.
Historically, when we experienced scarcity in the context of our command over materialresourcesand communicative abilities, we practiced 'exclusion' (succumbing to the view "first for me then maybe for you"). This unmet "minimum needs' of manyhas led to a 'clash' at the socio-political "inclusion / exclusion' interface, locally and globally.
Since the "group within' as the group in control justifiesand demands its minimum needs on all economic frontsbe met by society, there can be no rational or moral bases to concurrently orient society to exclude meeting the minimum needs ofother human beings. Global distributive justice (7), on minimum needs is indicated and its realization becomes the responsibility of the "order to be established by the people", through non-violent global dissent in consciousness.
The fears associated with 'scarcity'are the major enforcers of 'exclusion'.
In the 21st century,society is materially and communicatively able. Inertia aside, there is no imperative that the 'in group' is required to condition the younger generation for a morality of 'exclusion'.
The younger generation could be conditioned to be 'globally inclusive' in meeting the minimum economic needs of all. Its initiation and practice would allow allpeople to lead creative, productive, equitable living, while tending to the transformations that are necessary, consuming what is needed while avoiding waste.
The population undergoing the transition would experience some anxiety.
Incorporating 'Moral Inclusion' in consciousness:
allows consideration of'fair play' for the other, due to'connectedness'
leads to willingness to allocate, and share resources
leads to willingness to make sacrifices to foster the welfare of the included
extends the psychological boundary of the'scope of justice'to the included
It enhances mental health, and wouldendemically nurture global security for everyone.
The analytic basis for Inclusion, would be a spiritual acknowledgment of "subject centered justice' for all , on minimum needs, (not to be pacified by the privilege given to 'me' of the FWP), but granting in consciousness "the scope of justice' to all, with a concurrent effort to structure the emerging global society to deliver the associated birth freedom (6) of "subsistence, security, and liberty', resulting in "distributive justice', (7) on minimum needs, for the global population.
This approach acknowledges that consciousness had bifurcated its concerns into the "spiritual' and the "secular', creating institutions to supervise the overlapping areas, with the expectation that these institutions would naturally communicate and coordinate with each other on basics. During the growth of consciousness in recent centuries, the "separation of church and state' (8), occurred en route incertain locations, leading to some efficacy in the functioning of both sets of institutions, but the "scope of justice' achieved, (law and order), while marginal, was functional only for the group within.
Consciousness has also understood that lack of coordination between these institutions and the non-delivery of basics to all, has lead to suffering, and the limited reachof consciousness may have required the practice of'exclusionmorality',("first for me then maybe for you"), (2), to enable coping during our days of sparse knowledge and material scarcity.
Nevertheless, the current distribution presents a wake-up call for 21st century consciousness:
Putting it in simple terms for our discussion
Representing the global production of goods and services for the Year 2002 by 10 plums, through the global political economy,
The global First World Population (FWP) of about 1.2 billion people kept 8 plums for themselves,(earnings greater than $8 per head per day),
The global Lower middle-classes of about 2.7 billion peoplewere given 1.5 plums (earnings between $2 and $8 per head per day),
The global Poor of about 2.7 billion people had to live on 0.5 plums (earnings less than $2 per head per day).
Hope leads to optimism and joyful action, granting each of us appropriate rewards.
1. To facilitate 'inclusion morality' ("for you too"), through the "Nonviolent Earth Rights for All Program of Action", (NERAPOA), described below, we must engage the spirit of the global 5%, the leading monopolistsamongst the FWP of 18%, who endemically practice "exclusion morality", (*), ("first for me, then maybe for you") educating their labor force,(the middle-classes), to go along with them.
2. We'll acknowledge thatthe joint development of the people and the stratification of opportunitywas based on guidelines adopted by human consciousness from spiritual movementstagged as Nature Worship, Paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Atheism, or variations of the same, and our language based, analytic, scientific endeavor.
3.The historical record shows that humans labored in their enterprise, concurrently locally

At 2008, (63 AH), the impact of the wanton policy of lack of regulation offinancial institutions, make-believe financial derivatives, and 'self-dealings', leading to the crash of the self-serving global financial system and the global stock market, and capitulation by major national Administrations torestoration ofthe failed concepts of private- bankingthat represent the'nurture ofan error heralded by Alexander Hamilton and the merchant lobby in 1787, into a mistake', in recent times by Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama in the present.
These have been some of the practical / conceptual way stations en route, unfolding suppression along withsome adoption and integration (inclusion)reflecting the contest between "feardemandingself-preservation", in the status -quo, (conservative fruits of the Amygdala in the human operating system),competing with "aspects of enlightenment and release", (liberal fruits of Language, thought and logical structures, that promote independent,individual and collective action in human operating systems).
In a small measure, some of these past struggles challenged the practice of 'exclusion morality' administered by the evolving, erstwhile national / now global political economy (GPE) of the Blood-Bankers (1) and their cohorts, who currentlycontinue to administer 30,000 daily global poverty deaths, through 'structural violence',unhindered by any human law to the contrary.
To soften such and similar negative impacts, evolving consciousness articulated natural expression of human 'empathy and compassion'in the practice of 'kindness and charity' outside the secular system.It was / is transacted through the available spiritual institutions that'cleanse' the social- conscience ofthe ongoing Civilization; but 'kindness and charity' is not competent to resolve design structural violence!
During the financial collapse of 2008, the secular institutions joined the effort with small handoutsof extension of unemployment insurance in Western democracies for those who had "lost their job". These 'exclusion morality'secular democratic institutions were unresponsivetothose who had "no job"other than comforting them in their 'welfare identity'.Further they have no provision other than politically motivated 'foreign aid' for those residing outsideany nation.
4. In this paper human consciousness takes a stand:
We may no longer cooperate with the forces exercising 'exclusion morality', whether it be with regard to land itself, resources on land or in the sea, resources of space outside the Earth, the utilization of the electromagnetic spectrum,the utilization ofnatural forces and their applications,fruits of the intellect, research data, knowledge, logical structures,or even the content of consciousness itself.
5. Non-cooperation with the schemes perpetrated by 'exclusion morality' of the Blood- Bankers and their military industrial- complex could be exercised through:
Organizing to manage:
5.1. A declaration of Conscientious Objection (CO) (a genuine stand), to theirexpectation that the Middle-Classes will conceptually and practically join, in the practice of violence, to enable the 5% to retain control amongst themselves, utmost with nominal change, as in 'elections', or 'coups', or outright wars.
5.2. An unwillingness to surrender one's existing rights despite creation by the elite of an altar of 'induced fear', and an unwillingness to bear arms when instigated to do so through provocative 'incidents', publicized by the noisy, cooperative, main stream media, and
5.3. Non-cooperation by the employees (the 13% of the FWP) who are currently beholden to the 5%), and
5.4 With the orientations above, at the global level, as global dissent.
6.All through history we have beenconditioned and continue to be conditioned,
6.1. to be job-seekers in the military-industrial complexes nurtured in the various nations, to precisely deliver the ends of "exclusion' designed by the Blood-Bankers, corporations and judges who are 'politicians in robes' on critical issues, and
6.2. to be member-employees from the various middle-classes, to serve them, but
6.3 principled non-violent defense of "birth freedoms' (6) and "earth rights' (5) of the people and its acknowledgement and practice by all, must supersede paying homage to the concoctedclaimsof the Blood Bankers and the 5%, that they are entitled to a global pool of employees to work on the land
And resources they have sequestered from all other people,including the job-corps of the middle-classes that are designed to form a buffer between them and the Poor.
7.In formulating an'inclusion morality' policy to address the above, the lessons learned, and the experience gained from the practical non-violence movements (not non-violent movements) of Gandhi whoovercamethe practice of violence of the British Raj in India, and Martin Luther King Jr., who processed the violence of racial discrimination in consciousness for a second time in USA,must be incorporated.
That aside, the global political environment addressed through the framework of 'exclusion morality' is debilitating and continuously worsening, wherein:
7.1. Robots would deliver most physical work, (good-bye labor unions),
7.2. soft- ware programs would undertake most managerial work, (good-bye service employee's international unions),
7.3. the adoption of the Nazi V-2 rockets strategy by nations able to deploy enhanced versions of the same, resulting in extra-judicial assassinations of leadersby the use of drones and predators, has comodified the nature of physical resolution of politicalconflicts between / amongst nations, bidding fare-wellfor the needof large standing armies in nationsthatpossesssuch capability.
7.4. Every aspect of relationship in Nature is translated by Capitalism (a policy decision)into a 'commodity', devaluing human relationships,leading toa calculated enforced acceptance of poverty deaths as a necessity, thereby replacing democracy by a plutocracy, in practice.
7.5. It calls upon Pharmacy to contribute to seduction of free-will, probably achieving only a temporary abduction, (recall: China was able to overcome the set back from the opium-play), to enhance and continue the practice of "exclusion morality" by the 5% global monopolists, enslavingthe rest,to their self-serving, limited vision of the future.
8. In contrast, visualizehuman future where our "birth freedoms' and "earth rights' would formulate and implement 'inclusion morality', investing in an "environment- based governance philosophy / structure", with appropriate global administration of the biosphere for the welfare of most of its species, (DNA data files would be maintained on species near unavoidable extinction),leading to a new Civilization in which major social injustices would be absentby design, the need for social violence reduced, and the "form and practice of 'integrative power' ", (Kenneth E Boulding), (3), operational.
No public policy of any national Administration we have in 2010is directed towards achieving 'inclusion morality' as stated above.
9. Public policy continues to be controlled by private-bankingand the military-industrial complex, through a global rhetoric that is either 'dumb' or 'smart' and of vanilla or chocolate flavor, placing people of he Middle-Class ona treadmill 'seeking employment',and the reststagnatingin poverty , both groups unable to accesstheir birth freedoms and earth rights, stolen by the 5%, and encoded into law, to be accepted as 'order': tomost of the newborn wesheepishly say: "sorry , you arrived abit late:almost every thing is taken".
The people want their birth freedoms and earth rights and have a duty to manage the implied opportunity through language and evolution and may not settle for the lesser principle of simple self-centeredness by a few for the few. ..
The spiritual, emotional, intellectual and political struggle to achieve the same has to continue, under a program ofprincipled non-violent engagement and exposure ofthe ongoing co modification and 'exclusion morality' of the 5% that are contrary to the interest of the people, leading to those designated "Poor".
Experience of the natural needfor this transition is the cause of global unrest, and any success in attempting tocurb it by the blood-bankers through violence practiced and delivered by the middle-class would at best be temporary, and would lead to the 'paradox of repression', (4), granting momentum to the globalization of dissent.
Discussion of the NERAPOA to this end, would raise consciousness and engender favorable participation of probably well over 75% of the global population through their national democratic governments, and the Bankers who hold out through violence by surrogates would have no place to hide in consciousness.
Resolution of the unrest would thus be shifted from the practice of violence to the practice of non-violence.
The Bankers and the corporations would have to negotiate non-violently with the 75%, and implement birth freedoms and earth rights for all, bridging access to it through collection of 'ground- rent' from the monopolists for land, non-renewable resources, the electromagnetic spectrum, space, and human creativity (reserving a shorttime period for personalcredit on individualcontributions),resulting in the demolition of the 'exclusion morality'- wall,thereby opening the futureahead of us tohuman 'integrative power'.
11. To achieve this transitionfor the global population, the Internet would be used as an open source by the NERAPOA, to inform (webinars), to associate with (hear and see) one another, and to organize,leading to local town hall meetings all over the globe, training the population in 'principled non-violence' (3), for the encounters that challenge 'exclusion morality' that is opposed in practice to the realization of birth freedom and earth rights for all..
Everyone is invited to participate and establish a relationship in this long overdue conceptual and intellectual transition, supported by our primary spiritual life that wants to seat all the people at the Table and not leave them on the Menu for the blood bankers and their corporations.
12. To be seated at the table:
Remove the provisions for a line of credit through private banking. Replace it with a line of credit for every child, (the potential source of practical creativity) at birth.Reorganize the banking system to facilitate the same.
13. As to be expected, the 5%, the monopolists who control money, would try to undermine the rise of such consciousness.
The people must protect and ensure continuance of a free Internet, (delivery of data, information, communication), always supporting genuine good-faith from any quarter.
14. Unbounded personal energy and global material support to secure birth freedoms and earth rights of human beings would come into existence in the natural course of events.
15. Even though accommodations were made by the people at the way stations of history, birth freedoms and earth rights are gifts of God or of Nature depending on one's belief system.c
Given that origin, they are destined to unfold, and flourish
16. Despite programming to the contrary, the individual is unable to surrender these rights,
To anyone, or
To any process, or
To the view "that pursuit of global capitalism suitable for the monopolists, the 5%, enabling them to pursue and uphold their illicit past and current intake of what belonged to and belongs to others, and submission by the Middle-Class, (13%),who ensure their own employment as sufficient return for their complicity and their cooperation", or
To the view that birth freedoms and earth rights for the people are unnecessary and may be squashed bya "5 to 4" Ruling of a trend setting Supreme Court.
We must discern the points highlighted, amplify themand continue the journey, non-violentlytranslatingearth rights and birth freedoms for all the people into practice
The assumption here is that nascent "spirituality' is experienced by each and every one of us independently, and MMNA when properly articulated and communicated to the public would obtain, our individual and group attention, affiliation and support, (since that of God is in each of us), for its implementation.
The institutions of "kindness and charity', soft institutional armor carried by "exclusion morality' holding us in its tight embrace, may continue, but would be superseded, by the eminence, power, and timeless assurance of real, economic security and enhanced mental health, through a credit line for each child at birth, leading to global "distributive justice' under "inclusion morality'.
"Nonviolent Earth Rights for All Program of Action", (NERAPOA), would enable us to achieve the same.
Hope leads to optimism and joyful action, granting each of us appropriate rewards.
