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

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,
American jurisdiction of state legislatures established soon after the
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.
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,
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.
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

The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union still stand.

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."

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
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.
