Washington- “President Barack Obama said the United States has not overcome its history of racism and is using the N-word to make his case.” This is the all too typical way politicians address America’s problems.
A century back, James Allen wrote in As a Man Thinketh, “It is pleasing to human vanity to believe that one suffers because of one’s virtue, but not until a man has extirpated every sickly, bitter, and impure thought from his mind, and washed every sinful stain from his soul, can he be in position to know and declare that his sufferings are the result of his good, and not of his bad qualities; and on the way to, yet before he has reached, that supreme perfection, he will have found, working in his mind and life, the Great Law which is absolutely just, and which cannot, therefore, give good for evil, evil for good. Possessed of such knowledge, he will then know, looking back upon his past ignorance and blindness, that his life is, and always was, justly ordered, and all his experiences, good and bad, were the equitable outworking of his evolving, yet unevolved self.”
And in addition, “As a being of Power, Intelligence and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which may make himself what he wills.”
Indeed, if there were such a thing as perfection, the universe would cease to move, or even exist. Thus, In consideration of the consequences of matters both large and small, I shall try to explain—and without mathematical equations, to clarify some key points about the universe—present a new theory without the laws of physics or requiring supernatural intervention.
Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, was a deist. He accepted the existence of God on the evidence of reason and nature, without supernatural intervention. He wrote in the Declaration, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable (inalienable) rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
Alas, inalienable rights are defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as “Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights.” However, according to the present makers and keepers of America’s laws, no American possesses inalienable rights. The Declaration of Independence is null and void. We go on political justice.
It follows that controversies in which the United States is a party, expressed or implied, of personal injuries due to neglect, wrongful act, or omission, the U.S. Supreme Court has painted with a broad brush, and at times uneven interpretations to those entitled to recover losses.
For instance, in Flast v. Cohen, the Warren Court rejected the government’s notion that there is an absolute bar to taxpayer suits challenging the validity of federal spending programs, and that the deference owed by the federal judiciary to the other two branches within the constitutional scheme bars the Supreme Court from hearing any case involving the constitutionality of tax. Ask any lawyer, he’ll tell you.
The Warren Court: “An analysis of the function served by standing limitations compels a rejection of the Government’s position.”
Under the law, an officer of government who acts in excess of his lawful authority loses his official character and becomes legally responsible. In cases before the U. S. Supreme Court involving officers of government acting in excess of their lawful authority, it depends on who the suing party is. In a case involving the Communist Party U.S.A., the Supreme Court favored the Communist Party. In my case before the Supreme Court, the Court, without a word, rejected the case. How could they? Who am I? I’m out of sight, out of mind. The Internal Revenue Service had clearly ignored a Tax Court Order in my favor. Under the law, this is obstruction of justice. But to let me be heard where it counts would be encouragement to others. For the good of all, best to shove my case under the carpet. For the good of all, of course, depends on who is laying down the law.
It took a newspaper investigation to force the Internal Revenue Service to admit that it made a “mistake.” As far as the individual taxpayer in America is concerned, the United States if free to make unlimited mistakes in tax collection—for the good of all. The law in America has come to this: “do as I say, not as I do.”
This could only happen when the individual allows his inalienable rights to be ignored. When this occurs, the law reverts back to the law of the jungle: might makes right. It is only natural that the establishment would fight any effort to change the system in place. After all, it takes years of toil and sacrifice to build an establishment—and along the way necessary expediencies.
Government has its role, the individual his role. Government is here to do the things the individual cannot do as well himself. Caretaker government is against natural law. It is the individual’s responsibility to protect his natural rights, and to accept his responsibilities. President Roosevelt declared, however, that government has an “inherent duty” to the individual. On this, the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, in Ethics, as to natural justice: “Of political justice, part is natural, part legal—natural that which everywhere has the same force and does not exist by people’s thinking this and that; legal, that which is originally indifferent.”
In Black’s Law Dictionary, under “lawful,” we read, “A further distinction is that the word ‘legal’ is used as the synonym of ‘constructive,’ which ‘lawful’ is not.” We note that “lawful” contemplates the substance of the law, “legal” the form of law. “Thus ‘legal fraud’ is fraud implied or inferred by law, or made out by construction.” In other words, politicians are indifferent toward me and the law.
Getting back to Aristotle’s philosophy, “To invest the law then with authority is, it seems, to invest God and reason only (Jefferson’s philosophy); to invest a man is to introduce a beast, as desire is something bestial, and even the best of men in authority are liable to be corrupted by passion. We may conclude then that the law is reason without passion and it is therefore preferable to any individual.”
With the law in mind, it is with the above thoughts in mind that I bring you to today’s world, not as the world is being educated to believe, but as to fact. More than half of the people in America believe that we are being visited by intelligent life from elsewhere in the universe, beings that do not have our best interests in mind. They are here in their best interests.
Abundant evidence reveals that extraterrestrial beings have been visiting our planet for thousands of years. If they wanted to take over, they could have easily done it. The fact that they have not tells us they have something else in mind.
For those who believe in the Scriptures, please turn to Matthew 6:10. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth; as it is in heaven.” Would it not be logical to say that good and evil exist everywhere? In Matthew 6:24, “No man can serve two masters,” would that not say there is only one God? In Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you,” where is the kingdom of God? Turn to Luke 17:21, “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or lo there! for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
In Luke 21:25, Jesus speaking of his return, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars,” what did Jesus mean by signs? In astrology, we are leaving the sign of Pisces. The sign of Pisces is two attached fish swimming in opposite directions. Pisces indicates unconscious acceptance of the thoughts of people with whom they associate. It indicates being easily influenced by external factors. It indicates people who are not combative, people who generally suffer injury rather than fight for their rights.
In Luke 21:36, Jesus said, “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man”—“and all these things shall be added unto you,” Matthew 6:33.
For all of those who have other ideas on “the law,” who or what makes the law? The cutting edge of science has finally concluded that without universal consciousness nothing could exist. Were you and I not consciously aware, we would not function. To the extent that we function depends on how much we restrict our conscious awareness. Naturally, authority would restrict awareness to that of which authority believes best for all. One suit fits all. It doesn’t work.
In Matthew 23:13, Jesus denounces his authority, the Scribes and Pharisees, with this: “But woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”
I’m not an authority, but I say the same as Jesus. Without knowing it, I acted according to Matthew 23:13. I acted according to the law I’ve above related—and received the wrath of authority and following. People don’t want to hear this that I’m writing. Indeed, I’m Jonathon Seagull. But in spite of it all, ultimately, my dream came true.
I look at intelligent life from elsewhere in the universe the way native Americans must have looked at Europeans when they showed up. Taking into consideration that good and evil is not confined to the planet Earth, and being subjective, better to go along with change, while I admit that bucking the establishment was a long-term fight, and no cinch to win, now in the twilight of life, I can say my life is as good as it gets. I don’t want to keep America, by comparison with what America was, in the Stone Age; nor do I want to be put on the reservation. I’m willing to take my chances and go along with change. The caretaker government of America, in my view, has grown old and feeble while I’ve grown mentally strong under the Higher Law.
Welcome to the new age, a time when, to quote astrology, individuals, born under the sign of the water-bearer, the sign of brotherhood and fraternity, who spill out to mankind the life-force and spiritual energy, Aquarians are stubborn in belief and companionship extremely important. They loathe and despise hypocrisy. Independent and personally responsible, they will lead us into the kingdom of God. For it is in the Scriptures, in Genesis 1:26-27, Let us make man in our image, in the image of God.
