articles of confederation and perpetual union


The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union was penned in 1777 soon after the Declaration of Independence and existed as the only constitution until 1788.

The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union was an agreement among the 13 founding states that established the United States of America as a confederation of sovereign states.

On February 21, 1787, the Congress of the Confederation delivered a resolution authorizing a Philadelphia constitutional convention but with an important limitation: "for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation and reporting to Congress and the several legislatures."

Prior to the Philadelphia constitutional convention, Framers wrote and distributed approximately 85 "Federalist Papers" to extol the virtues of an entirely new, second constitution for the people of America.

By doing this, they hoped to reverse the prevailing negative public opinion and increase the public's confidence in such a plan.

Framers hid behind a pseudonym when writing their Federalist Papers; each was signed as "Publius," meaning "friend of the people" (or public).

Many of the dissenting voices among the free inhabitants of the several states regarded the upcoming Philadelphia constitutional convention as potentially illegal.

They well-understood from the Federalist Papers the Federalists goal of creating a new constitution and not simply revising the existing one.

In the minds of the free inhabitants, the accomplishment of Federalist goals could unravel the freedoms and liberties they had gained under the Articles of Confederation and won by the American Revolution.

The Philadelphia constitutional convention, held from May into September 1787, exceeded the authority given it.

Instead of revising the Articles of Confederation they forged an entirely new constitution.

The Constitution of the United States, signed September 17, 1787, was deemed ratified June 21, 1788 by only nine states instead of the unanimous ratification of all 13 states required by the Articles of Confederation.

Thereafter, a new, centralized US Government was formed, disregarding the original, decentralized American jurisdiction of state legislatures established soon after the American Revolution.

In June of 1788 at the Virginia Conference, orator and Anti-Federalist, Patrick Henry, exposed the political tactics of propaganda he believed the Federalists had used to win over the public.

The Framers had pandered to the people in order to get their way, he said, by convincing the people, that under a new constitution, democracy would mean the government belonged to them.

" Who authorized them to speak the language, 'We, the people', instead of 'We, the states?' . . . That they exceed their powers is perfectly clear . . . The Federal Convention ought to have amended the old system; for this purpose they were solely delegated; the object of their mission extended to no other consideration." - Patrick Henry, June 4, 1788

The Constitution of 1787 and the US government it formed was an illegitimate (unauthorized) takeover of the original American jurisdiction.

The new Constitution provided for a much stronger national government with a chief executive (the president), courts, and taxing powers.

The Articles of Confederation have never been been lawfully repealed.

Americans, no longer suffering as indentured-servant subjects of the British monarchy, now suffer as indentured-servant subjects of a the United States Incorporated beholden to an obscured corporate-banking cartel.

The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union still stand.

The Constitution was a Federalist counterrevolution turning States into Municipalities.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
