Another of my voluntary non-profit projects goes by the name of “Reinventing America.” Yesterday, I shot a video on the topic of a proposed new “International Service Corps,” “Global Commons Action Plan,” and US domestic campaign for dramatically rebuiding infrastructure, etc. No such bold proposals – details below, in the text I posted to youtube as the video’s description – can possibly proceed with our current government structures, central banking structures and such.
Yet, whether people realize it or not, those are failing. We now face the prospect of reinventing nearly everything for the better, or suffering through an interminable national – and, to large degree – international decline. As the following clip makes evidently, I’m all in favor of the former course. And, there is a “New Energy” component to these plans.
In terms of reinventing our nation and world for the better, it’s time to return to the spirit of JFK’s inaugural address, in which he said;
“To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves…not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.”
JFK created the Peace Corps and the Alliance for Progress in Latin America. He opposed secrecy in government. Upon learning of CIA duplicity in the Vietnam War, he threatened to “smash [it] into a thousand pieces.” Via Executive Order 11110, JFK attempted to “abolish the Fed” and replace it with a still-needed Treasury banking system. With the assasination of JFK and his brother, Bobby, American foreign and domestic policy trends were dealt an enormous setback, from which our world never recovered; both the United States and various other major nations have continued Latter-Day Rome drift ever since. But, now is the time when we can finally address these issues and lay the foundation for a new world of peace and Shared Abundance, at home and abroad.
This video introduces the following proposals;
a) Creation of a new International Service Corps and Global Commons Action Plan, with US leadership, and a US domestic program counterpart. That will be like a hugely-ramped version of FDR’s WPA (Works Program Administration) for rebuilding infrastructure; an Americorps type program, but injected with more than 1000x times current budgets, manpower and infrastructure. For both the domestic and international (GCAP, ISC) programs, important competencies and infrastructure from US military and NATO structures will be extracted as appropriate, then reworked and repurposed toward socially and economically constructive ends.
b) For both domestic and international programs, there will be three main planks; New Energy, New Health and New Earth. The first will focus on the accelerated distribution of suppressed clean revolutionary energy and transportation technologies, and accelerated distribution of selected existing renewables. The New Health plank will be primarily an educational effort, spreading best-of-breed health and wellness information, esp. including dietary practices (and the elimination of current GMOs). Certain technology and clinical components will also be involved. The New Earth campaign will focus on national and international remineralization and revitalization of soils and the creation of organic agriculture projects; also, environmental cleanup of land and sea, involving conventional and suppressed remediation technologies alongside a global tree-planting program.
c) Reduction of US military budgets and manpower to 20% of current (2014) levels by 2020, with savings and reduced human resources redirected both toward domestic and international reconstruction projects.
A Golden Age of Shared Abundance is possible, but only if good-hearted people become active to make it happen. Bringing about such a world, today, will be far easier than in JFK’s day. We just need to set our sights higher and make course corrections. Final thoughts from JFK’s 1961 inaugural address;
“Can we…assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort? If a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let us join in creating a new endeavor; not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved. Let us unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah, to “Undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free.” The energy, the faith, the devotion, which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it, and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on Earth, God’s work must truly be our own.”
