"The rights of humankind originate at birth."

The Rights of Man

"Republican government based on reaso🐍 engenders freedom, government by hereditary succession based on ignorance reduces people to slavery."

Thomas Paine

1774 Thomas Paine, largely self-educated, comes to the colonies after meeting Benjamin Franklin in London.

1776 Thomas Paine is writing for Pennsylvania Magazine, later became its editor and begins working on Common Sense.

Without Thomas Paine's newsprint 'magazines' there might never have been an American Revolution.

Thomas Paine, a liberal thinker, opposes slavery, abhors monarchy and promotes republicanism - res-publica, the public affairs, or the public good.

Liberal thinkers of his time - George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adams, James Madison, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams and Benjamin Franklin - were skeptical of the institutions of power that included the "kingly oppressions" of monarchs, the Roman Catholic church and chartered incorporations of that time represented by the dominant predatory giant of the day - the British East India Company.

"The order which reigns among mankind is not the effect of government.

That order has its origin in the principles of society and the natural constitution of man.

That order existed prior to government, and would continue to exist if the formality of government was abolished.

The mutual dependence and reciprocal interest which man has upon man, and all the parts of civilized community upon each other, create that great chain of connection which holds it together.

Common interest regulates citizen concerns and forms law; laws which common usage ordains have a greater influence than laws of government.

Society performs for itself almost everything ascribed to government.

No one man is capable, without the aid of society, of supplying his own wants, and those wants, acting upon every individual, impel the whole into society, as naturally as gravitation acts.

Nature has implanted in man a system of social affections, which,
though not necessary to his existence, are essential to his happiness.

The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act: a general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.

In short, man is so naturally a creature of society that it is almost impossible to put him out of it.

All the great laws of society are natural laws.

Those of trade and commerce, whether with regard to the intercourse of individuals or of nations, are laws of mutual and reciprocal interest.

These laws are followed and obeyed, because it is the interest of the parties so to do, and not on account of any formal laws imposed or interposed.

Governments, far from being the means of order, often cause destruction.

One of the great advantages of the American Revolution has been, that it led to a discovery of principles, and laid open the imposition, of governments.

All the revolutions till then had been worked within the atmosphere of a court, and never on the grand floor of a nation.

The parties a class of courtiers carefully preserved the fraud of the profession, blinding the understanding of man, and making him believe that government is some wonderful mysterious thing.

Government is a national association added onto the principles of society.

The Philosophy of Liberty

Government, on the old system, aggrandizement of power; on the new, a delegation of power for the common benefit of society.

The former supports itself by keeping up a system of war; the latter promotes a system of peace, as the true means of enriching a nation.

The one encourages national prejudices; the other promotes universal society, as the means of universal commerce.

The one measures its prosperity, by the quantity of revenue it extorts;
the other proves its excellence, by the small quantity of taxes it requires.

Having thus glanced at a few of the defects of the old hereditary systems of government, let us compare it with the new, or representative system.

Squaring the Circle

"Squaring the circle was a problem that exercised medieval minds.

It is a symbol of the opus alchymicum, as it breaks down the original chaotic unity into four elements, combining them again in a higher unity.

Unity is represented by a circle and the four elements by a square.

The production of one from four is the result of a process of distillation and sublimation which takes the so-called "circular" form: the distillate is subjected to sundry distillations so that the "soul" or "spirit" shall be extracted in its purest state." - Carl Jung

The representative system of government is calculated to produce the wisest laws, by collecting wisdom from where it can be found.

That which is called government is no more than some common center in which all the parts of society unite.

A nation is not a body, the figure of which is to be represented by the human body; but is like a body contained within a circle, having a common center, in which every radius meets; and that center is formed by representation.

The system of government now called the new, representative government, is the most ancient in principle of all that have existed, being founded on the original, inherent rights of the living human being.

Tyranny and the sword have suspended the exercise of those rights for many centuries past, it serves better the purpose of distinction to call it the new, than to claim the right of calling it the old.

The representative system takes the culture for its basis; nature, reason, and experience, for its guide.

A truly representative system will parallel the order and immutable Laws of Nature.

The representative system diffuses such a body of knowledge throughout a nation, on the subject of government, as to explode ignorance and preclude imposition.

Government that does not act on the principle of a Republic, the res-publica as its sole object, is an evil government.

A republican form of government is no other than government established and conducted for the interest of the public, individually as well as collectively.

A republican form of government is not necessarily connected with any particular form, but it most naturally associates with the representative form.

In the representative system, the reason for everything must publicly appear (be transparent).

Every man is a proprietor in government, and considers it a necessary part of his business to understand.

Government concerns his interest, because it affects his property and rights.

A thinking man examines the cost, and compares it with the advantages; and above all, he does not adopt the slavish custom of following what in other governments are called LEADERS." - Thomas Paine

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from Яeality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. 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 re☦igion based on reaso🐍 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Ć∞n and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity 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. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate ˘rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the vi☬lence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the world central banking system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the coλλapse of moraλs, the eg● w●rship 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 p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c☢rp☢rate media psych☢l☢gical ☢perati☢ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra˘tion and ˘oer˘ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
