How would the Declaration of independence look if the name King of Great Britain was replaced by the name Federal Reserve Bank? I am not american, however the Declaration of Independence is one of the most straightforward documents of independence there is in history. For that reason I decided to make a little experiment and see how would a modern day Declaration of Independence would look.
I will quote the most relevant parts of the Declaration of Independence so you can see how it even applies to our modern time. In the parentheses I replaced the original pieces of the text with the ones that apply to the present situation.
Declaration of Independence (excerpt)
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The above is one of the most beautiful phrases of literature in English writing.
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,..”
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
“The history of the present (Federal Reserve Bank) is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over (the World).”
“(The Federal Reserve Bank) has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.”
“(It) has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.”
“(It) has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
(It) has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.”
and it continues..
“For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:”
“For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.”
and the Declaration of Independence concludes like this.
“We, therefore, the Representatives of (the World), in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of (the World), solemnly publish and declare, That these (united Nations) are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to (the Federal Reserve Bank), and that all political connection between them and (the United States), is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
Our society definitely has to revaluate its direction and its leadership. After seeing all the destruction, war and exploitation of humans and the environment one must stop and think about what is going on. Our current system has been misguided by tyranny, greed and ambition and it has lead to a path of misery and suffering. It is time for the rest of the world, the people that are still standing to face the forces that are dominating the world and guiding it through a downward spiral. It is time to wake up and start the revolution.
