Five Core Freedoms
by Christopher Rudy
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble,
and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
redress v. 1. To set right, remedy or rectify. 2. To make amends for.
n. 1. Satisfaction for wrong done; reparation. 2. Correction.
The Bill of Rights, succinctly expressed in the Constitution's First Amendment
was to prevent any decrease in Universal Rights by government.
This is what global Netizens love about the U.S. Constitution.
And it's what good American citizens have always loved.
The common sense of that noble vision gave birth to the
best model for public self-governance in world history
"If we can keep it" as Ben Franklin said.
This is the challenge facing global humanity now.
There nothing more valuable that the vision of our
core freedoms -- their full implication
for the Family of Man in our
"It is at all times necessary,
and more particularly so during the progress of a revolution
and until right ideas confirm themselves by habit,
that we frequently refresh our patriotism by reference to
- by Thomas Paine who sparked the American Revolution with COMMON SENSE,
the most successful pamphlet in history whose name and flame are the same
The Five Core Freedoms
Freedoms of Assembly, Speech, Press, Religion
and the Right to Petition Government
for a Redress of Grievances
These are the core rights at the heart of a
self-governing process that, all together,
is meant to serve, indeed empower,
self-evident VIRTUES for self-regulating
of, by and for the public.
Common sense today honors that vision
in the new world of Net reality defined by
an instant-everywhere-interactive Internet
with the response ability to culture sacred
Conscience at the heart of social networks.
is the most sacred of all property."
~ Chief Architect of the Constitution, James Madison
1 - FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY IN THE PUBLIC SPHERE
The Internet is our window into Net reality.
Social networks on the Internet are like
town hall meetings where we assemble.
How we window into our social networks
defines how our Net reality represents
individual rights in the public sphere.
Culturing Social CONSCIENCE in our
social network COMMUNITIES
The more that we assemble around the Constitution of Conscience,
the better the prospects for representation of pure intention.
Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Independence,
was the 3rd U.S. President who had an uncanny
sense of the importance of our core freedoms
and the meritocracy, the "natural aristocracy"
required to make them work.
"There is a natural aristocracy among men.
The grounds of this are virtue and talent."
~ Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson's pure intent was that self-governing sovereignty
would effectively represent public virtue and talent.
Since the common wealth of virtue and talent will
only rule if that 'natural aristocracy' is the rule...
common sense of, by and for our commonwealth
compels well-rounded rights in the public sphere
whereby the best and brightest ideas for public
service may rise like cream to the top of civility.
2 - FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS SOCIAL RESPONSE ABILITY
The interactive Internet empowers response ability.
Responsibility for our collective self governance
is represented through interactive free speech.
Response ability is essential for responsibility
and the conscientious common sense that
wants what ought to be for all humanity.
The more full-spectrum our Net reality re: problems,
the more light language we bring to holistic solutions.
It is the pure intent of "full spectrum light" (intelligence)
in the Net reality networks of our social Conscience
that will most likely upgrade our core freedoms.
That will naturally occur as our social networks
"define, refine, combines (synergize) and shine"
(link the light) of collective wisdom in our
consciousness, BEING and world.
the father of all mercies scatter light,
and not darkness,
upon our paths, and make us in all our several vocations useful
here, and in His own due time and way everlastingly happy. "
~ George Washington (letter to the Hebrew Congregation in
Newport, August 1790
As a simple yet profound essential whole,
these defined, combined and synergized
gifts of collective wisdom, via free speech,
will highlight a system of representation
as involves/evolves the common sense of
safety & happiness for the Family of Man
in our ALL-connected global village.
3 - FREEDOM OF PRESS IS FOR TRUTH IN THE PUBLIC SPHERE
The modern printing page is one's computer/Internet monitor or
palm-top or laptop versions thereof.
Approx. 3.3 billion global Netizens thus monitor the
state of core freedoms being expressed by
the power that claims liberty for all.
The use and abuse of power
by the most powerful
The higher the accountability through truth in good Conscience,
the greater the results for culturing social Conscience
in our local/global social network communities.
The appeal of, by and for Conscience at the heart
of a personal and planetary paradigm shift is an
appeal to the healthy, holistic and otherwise
holy spirit of good will as graces public opinion
BY LINKING THE LIGHT OF CONSCIENCE.
Liberty is freedom plus morality as Conscience.
This is the New World of instant-everywhere-interactive
Net reality that thrives in the image and likeness
of the 'Creator' and 'Source' of Higher Power
in the discerning Wisdom of universal LOVE.
"Public opinion sets bounds to every government,
and is the real sovereign in every free one."
~ James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution
4 - FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS FOR INDEPENDENT SPIRIT
Every belief system is represented on the Internet.
"Organized spirit" is an oxymoron to a free spirit.
Yet the more information we have, the greater is the need
to get it all in order with interactive mass TeLeComm
and come-in-unity processes that will optimize our
core freedoms via pure intent for virtue and talent
as response-able co-creators of a meritocracy
whereby the best ideas for the abundant life
are recognized and implemented for our
conscious evolutionary ascension into
a unity dimension of common sense:
United Sovereigns' Conscience.
The higher the concept of universal-cosmic LOVE,
the greater the results for unity in our diversity.
a man reaches the heart of his own religion,
he has reached the heart of all religions.”
~ "Mahatma" (Great Soul) Gandhi
It ain't rocket science folks. God is Love.
He that dwells in God, dwells in Love.
Fearless-perfect Love casts out fear.
Those who fear are not made perfect in Love.
The greater the LOVE, the less fear.
(paraphrased from 1 John 4: 16,18)
civil rights of none, shall be abridged
on account of religious belief or worship,
nor shall any national religion be established,
nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience
be in any manner, or on any pretext infringed. "
~ James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution and
4th U.S. President from 1789-1797. The quote here is
from a proposed amendment to the Constitution, given
in a speech in the House of Representatives, 1789
5 - FREEDOM TO PETITION IS FOR SELF-CORRECTING WHEN WRONG
"... to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
This core 'Capstone Right' is the protector of all other rights.
The four sides of the 'pyramid' of Constitutional freedoms all
come together with this ability for self-correcting through an
interactive communication process that makes government
accountable to the public service purpose it serves.
The great disconnect with
reality apparent in government today
can be seen when you consider the historical context and
original intent of the little known or understood "capstone"
Right to Petition for Redress of Grievances.
prevailing horse-and-buggy representation system
with contemporary Space Age telecommunication capabilities
is a way to fix virtually every violation against the Constitution.
An individual or civilization can rise no higher
than those shared values of sacred worth as
define, refine and shine whol-E purpose.
The higher the standard of E-valuation criteria
for our Net reality, the greater the results for
culturing social Conscience in social networks.
The Genesis of Freedom.
The business of
evolutionary ascent for all humanity is
based on the currency of abundant Conscience for our
"E-valuation" (discernment) at the HEART of Net reality.
The more 'truly universal' the E-valuation criteria via
the "metalanguage" for both the origination and
"real-time" (instant) E-valuation of our Net reality,
the more 'light' as discernment we bring to the
self-correcting and self-elevating process of
self-governance in our social networks.
light-languaging process cultures the holy spirit of
-in-action that integrates all our other core
freedoms in a process of "information's ecology" --
the recycling of general knowledge with intelligence
that empowers the wisdom of, by and for LOVE.
Rule of Law via the
Law of LOVE has always framed
the spirit of core Constitutional freedoms at heart.
This is the power of love as the Spirit that matters
as always rules via the golden rule/law language
that has empowered every golden age in history.
The more that TeLeComm with LOVE is the 'gold standard' for
culturing the Currency of Conscience in our social networks,
the more that abundant LOVE will thrive as that currency.
In the cosmic scheme of things, what goes around comes around.
To the extent that these 'Five Core Freedoms' go around" in our
global village of instant-everywhere and interactive Net reality,
virtue and talent will rise like cream to the top in our social
networks... because the light of truth and love provides
a Higher Power that naturally dispels its absence.
“Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by fear of punishment
and the other by arts of love.
Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and
permanent than power derived from fear of punishment.”
~ "Mahatma" (Great Soul) Gandhi
THE BOTTOM LINE IN THUS THE "HIGHEST GOOD"
If we are to own our own lives, learning, health and the
business of our individual and collective revolution
- the purpose of enlightened mankind as kind men -
then we must, indeed, understand and agree
that the golden rule/law language for civility
is the 'gold standard' for civilization that
ultimately provides the cultural DNA
for all our social networks and the
Net reality of our Conscience
as the Family of Mankind
in a new global village

Affirmation of Faith in
at the HEART of the ALLIANCE of United SOVEREIGNS
The Constitution of core freedoms in a global village
of instant-everywhere-interactive Net reality is
wholly transforming all our institutions
with the business of evolution
and the opportunity for
unity in diversity
Think PROCESSES... with wisdom to pay attention;
Take HEART... your/our valor with love's retention;
Join the ALLIANCE... our evolutionary ascension;
And Unite as SOVEREIGNS...
a unity-in-diversity dimension.
without spirituality is blind, and spirituality without activism is lame.
What we need now is a new form of "spiritual activism" that combines both spiritual and social transformation.
Nothing less can marry the heart's longing to the world's need, and give birth to a truly compassionate society."
