The 1787 Constitution Created an Oligarchy in the United States!

The American Relayer - Issue 12
Politics in the United States

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) is building a movement for Community Rights and the Rights of Nature to advance democratic, economic, social, and environmental rights – building upward from the grassroots to the state, federal, and international level.

Our mission is to build sustainable communities by assisting people to assert their right to local self-government and the rights of nature.

Begun as a traditional public interest law firm seeking to protect the environment, CELDF sought to protect communities from projects such as incinerators and waste dumps which cause environmental harm. Along the way, we encountered barriers put in place by both government and corporations. Such barriers included corporate constitutional “rights” and the preemptive authority of state government – both of which are used to override community decision making.

CELDF learned that no matter how hard we tried to stop projects that cause known environmental harm, our own government had worked with corporations to make sure such projects were sited.
In fact, together they had developed a structure of law which – rather than focused on protecting people, workers, communities, and the environment – was instead focused on endless growth, extraction, and development.

It is a structure that is inherently unsustainable, and has in fact, made sustainability illegal.

Thus, we recognized that whether communities were facing fracking, injection wells, factory farms, pipelines, GMOs, water extraction, or a wide range of other threats, the barriers they faced to stopping these projects – and in their place establishing sustainable energy, water, agriculture, and other systems – were the same.

Our Work Today

Today, through grassroots organizing, public education and outreach, and legal assistance, nearly 200 municipalities across the U.S. have enacted CELDF-drafted Community Rights laws which ban practices – including fracking, factory farming, sewage sludging of farmland, and water privatization – that violate the rights of people, communities and nature.

To protect those rights, the laws address the key barriers to local self-governance and sustainability – such as corporate constitutional “rights” – and has assisted the first communities in the U.S. to eliminate corporate “rights” when they interfere with Community Rights.

Further, CELDF has worked with the first U.S. communities and the first country to establish the rights of nature in law – recognizing the rights of ecosystems and natural communities to exist and thrive, and empowering people and their governments to defend and enforce these rights.

CELDF is now bringing communities and groups together to form statewide Community Rights Networks and the National Community Rights Network to drive change from the grassroots upward to the state and federal level.

This is the start of the Community Rights Movement. Join us!

The shire folk are worried the Sheriff of Nottingham will come and exact tax payment on the collected food, but are confident that Robin Hood will swoop in and save the day!

Mutton & Mead is a project of the Knighten Guild, in cooperation with the Millers Falls R&G Club.

Mutton and Mead aims to offer patrons an experience that is entertaining, enlightening and lively while also providing a venue to members of the local and extended community to showcase their talents as performers, educators, crafters and artisans.  

Are We A Medieval Or Renaissance Festival?

Medieval and renaissance festivals have much in common.  However, each pulls its respective themes from the culture and events of two very different periods of history (either the medieval or renaissance time period, which are hundreds of years apart). We have decided to begin with the medieval period, but wish to allow flexibility so that in the future we can tell stories of other time periods both real and imaginary.

Once the theme of a festival is determined, the approach and goals are akin. Both medieval and renaissance festivals breathe life into the past by having actors and actresses populating the streets and playing out scenes in character and in costume. Stages throughout the marketplace offer comedy, music and drama during the day of the festival. In the market, vendors and craftsmen demonstrate their trades and sell their wears. Games abound for both children and adults to have fun and test their skills!  The scents of perfume and delicious foods saturate the air. Merriment, mirth and music permeate!

The Lure Of The Mutton And Mead, The Shire’s Tavern...

What are we? We have decided that we are a tavern: "the Mutton and Mead Tavern", and this is their annual town festival... an Old Home Days, in the days of the Shires. But more than just any tavern, the Mutton and Mead is one that has thrived throughout the ages. 

Revered almost as an elderly relative, it is said that this tavern, the Mutton and Mead, has sat nestled in these same idyllic hills of this (fictitious) shire in England for centuries. That in part may explain the fame and love she elicits from her patrons. While the social and political landscape changed, the Mutton and Mead has not, catering to each generation of beloved patrons while staying true to what had become her legacy.

For centuries shire folk and travelers have visited this tavern and alehouse, THE MUTTON AND MEAD, be it on their way home from a hard day’s labor or to tend to their appetites whilst resting their horses before continuing on an arduous journey. The tavern plays a central role in shire life. It is a place to meet with friends, to play games, to sing, to hear the news and gossip of the day and to simply to forget one’s hardships. People flock to the tavern as the sun sets behind the hills and light cascades from the tavern’s windows... luring all to where they know great victuals and grand times await them.

The Festival…

Each year the Mutton and Mead tavern throws a festival drawing in entertainers, artisans, merchants and folk from both near and far. The streets become a flurry of activity with merchants hawking their wares, games to test the skills of both children and adults, and wandering minstrels infusing the air with music. Street performers demonstrate their talents while trying not to distract too much of the visitors’ attention from stages where the inne showcases a variety of acts which have made a name for themselves. Because of the Mutton and Mead’s renown, one never knows who might be seen walking the streets. Often nobility stop by while on progress through the shires of olde England.

What Is Mutton And Mead To “Us?”

Mutton and Mead traces the life and incarnations of a tavern over the centuries as well as its visitors who are both historical and imaginary figures; making history come alive in a lively manner.

However, Mutton and Mead is more than just a tavern. “She” is a vessel we aim to use to transport patrons back to times immortalized in the stories we have all heard. We intend to build a participatory community event that entertains, inspires, educates and most important, becomes an eagerly anticipated annual tradition. Whatever your interest, you will find something that resonates with you at Mutton and Mead, be it the entertainment, the food and drink, the merchants, the games or the joyous union of all these elements.

In our first year, 2011, we kicked things off with “Thieves of Honor”, a retelling of the legend of Robin Hood. While we all know the story, at Mutton and Mead we are bringing the beloved characters to life so that the story unfolds around you and you are immersed in it. You can even take part as the story unfolds!

A Local Belief…

However ancient the Mutton and Mead may be, one thing is clear... these tavern walls have witnessed more tales than a scribe could write in a thousand books! It is this uncontested fact that helps fuel a local legend about the Mutton and Mead; the belief that if a person is to become renowned in history, chances are that they will or already have paid a visit to the Mutton and Mead. The magic engendered by the Mutton and Mead has a peculiar way of making this happen. This belief will be exploited in the years to come and as the festival evolves. I think you know why!
Mutton & Mead is a project of the Knighten Guild, in cooperation with the Millers Falls R&G Club.

Summer Solstice Celebration at the Sirius Stone Circle Sanctuary

~ Archetypal Hermit leads our procession to the Stone Circle Sanctuary ~

I  play the role of 9th Archetype in the Tarot Majors - The Hermit

Seeking Wisdom from the Source... 

The Light shines from within the Soul; the view from the Summit which puts life into its proper perspective. This vantage point is accessed via looking to God who dwells within us; the infinite Creator being the reservoir of all the answers which the Seeker pursues. Each one of us is symbolized by the Lantern image; God's Light of inner awareness being the Candle Flame. Wisdom is the transcendental interpretation of knowledge as illuminated by the Light shining within one's Soul. All barriers of the material World are beneath the Cosmic Consciousness of the Hermit who has already traveled his Path of Quest. His search has led him to the Summit of his own perfection. Now, from this great height he can see 360 degrees without obscuration. His Lantern is held high as an inspiration to all who aspire to attain the Wisdom which he has come to realize during the process of his own Soul journey. The isolation and abstinence image sometimes given to the Hermit is one of the past; a glimpse of his travels through the physical and emotional wasteland where the misrepresentations of life as seen through the perception of the Physical Plane have been experienced and eventually transcended. This Archetype passed through a period of solitude and alienation during this walk through the proverbial "Valley of the Shadow of Death" that could have driven him Mad had it not been for the Light in his Lantern penetrating the Darkness and illuminating his Soul thus granting him hope of deliverance. The Hermit has indeed been carried through this initiatory Journey via his unwavering Faith in the Universal Source who Teaches and Guides all of us internally. The Lantern which he carries symbolizes his inner Vision provided via his "Third Eye" (Candle) which grants this Archetypal traveler a keen sense of Spiritual insight. PARALLEL ARCHETYPES: The Sage, The Old Wise Man, The Wandering Friar, The Lamplighter

We are all Lamplighters... as we draw many aspects from the darkness of separation into the One Light of Source! As Above... So Below... As Is... So Be It... and So it is!

Phoenix of the Ninth Archetype at Sirius Stone Circle Sanctuary!

~ Universal Rider-Waite Tarot ~

~ Descent into the Abyss at Vernal Equinox: March 20th, 2017 ~

On my Sixty-Seventh birthday in this Life, the White Candle was lighted in the Threshold Lantern at the Stone Circle Sanctuary of Sirius Community in Shutesbury, Massachusetts, USA. The date was March 19th, 2017. On the Vernal Equinox, I led a procession of Members, Residents, and Guests upstairs into the Octagon of the Community Center to begin the ceremony... and my Lantern went dark on the top step, as this White Candle was spent. Meditation Candle in the center of the room was lighted and the ceremony continued "off script" due to my being unprepared for this situation. Though this celebration of entry into Spring was a successful observance of transition into the season of rebirth after the dark days of Winter, I fell into a personal abyss of doubt and uncertainty as Shadow of the Archetypal Hermit, the Grim Reaper, confronted me with my own unresolved Fear of the unknown. Just a day earlier I was confirmed as a Full Member of Sirius Community by the Core Group, so I was totally unaware that my Lantern going dark would trigger me the way it did. The next step was an obvious one for someone who considers himself to be a Lamplighter... I went into Northampton and picked up a new Reiki-charged Green Candle, representing Heart, which I illuminated on March 25th (before first light) in the Lantern Room of the Connecting Space where I reside on the land at Sirius Community. I now stand on the Threshold of personal psychic integration, where I AM ready to step into my own power as a Full Member of this Community, leading a procession to our Standing Stone Circle in celebration of the Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the calendar year ~ JDHWB-R

Let's Talk About UnFuckers

good morning gorgeous unfuckers :D

Let’s Talk about UnFuckers

Hi darlins! This is just a brief update about UnFucker’s Unite- both the Facebook group and the RTS Earth Community. I want to open up the discussion on this topic and give you UnFuckers the opportunity to express yourselves and give me your thoughts and ideas.

It’s been pointed out to me by a lot of people that they really don’t want the UU Facebook group closed down/archived. And some of the reasons given are very valid. So let’s talk about it.

Unfuckit Discussion on RTS.Earth: June 14th, 2017
Dani Arnold McKenny

Good morning darlins :D

Last nights UnFuckIt Discussion was a really good one! great conversations about the energetic/emotional/mental upheavals that have been playing out, and a whole lot of information on detoxing!!!

Something I wanted to address in the discussion. There is a very definite "Divide and Conquer" theme that is currently playing out. Not just in politics/economics and in the main stream/alternative media, but within our very core group here, in UnFuckers Unite and in LMH Members. I touched a bit on this last night. Everything is becoming very transparent, and those with agendas of any kind are being very clearly seen. The play out of the Divide aspect in this group has been multipronged- from the extreme breakdowns that we've seen over the past few weeks/months, to the very subtle maneuvers to gather up people and distract them and lead them away.

We all know that this group was infiltrated by trolls and spies, right from the get-go when I created it back in October 2015. and we know that there has been a continuous stream of people who've come into the group with their own personal agendas. As I said, it's become very transparent to anyone who's really observing. But it seems that the "Divide & Conquer" theme has really ramped up in the past few weeks.

For me, I continuously have to look at myself and my own reactions to what's going on. I have to look at my own ego and question if my gut reaction is coming from "ego"- ie: "Hey this is MY group and no one is allowed to tamper with it!!", or am I picking up on the deeper agendas of those trying to dismantle or assimilate the UU group. And it's a tricky path to navigate. But deep down I have seen this play out before and I feel I have to call it as I see it.

One of the main reasons I created the RTS Earth community was to get the UnFuckers group off of Facebook. I've been very clear about this and very clear about WHY it's important to get off of Facebook- beyond the usual bullshit of facebook- but also to have the ability to weed out the trolls etc... It's been over two months since we got up and running. We now have switched over to beta version of the platform which is really running smoothly now. There is an RTS "Wall", and groups that work just like facebook, plus the ability to use the forums for specific topics and discussions. I discussed some of the technical aspects of last night in the UnFuckIt discussion, and John Anderson is around for technical assistance if needed (the box on the right side of the home page : Tech issues support").

Now that we have RTS Earth running smoothly, I will be archiving this group. This means that as of Monday, June 19th, the UnFuckers Unite Facebook group will no longer be open. You will still be able to see it, to read old posts or gather up any photos or links etc.. that you want. BUT no one will be able to post in the group any more. At that point, everyone can make a decision, either to move over to RTS Earth and join UnFuckers Unite, or not. The choice is up to each and everyone to make for themselves.

I've said over and over again, that what makes community are those IN the community, participating and using it. If everyone is there, enjoying, chatting, having the same fun and conversations that we have here, then all it means is having a new URL at the top of the page, nothing more.

I love you darlins. See you on RTS Earth. :D

Co-operative Decentralism and Solidarity Economy in the USA!

The Dynamics of Economic and Political Localization
Based on a Foundation of One Life Philosophy

By Joseph H. Bryan-Royster, Ph.D.

Unified Decentralism is the eventual synthesis of human co-operative evolution as reflected in localized economic and political systems founded upon the One Life principle of Metaphysics.

Applied Metaphysics is the field of study where an integration of consciousness is pursued against a backdrop of separated aspects, or many life forms, in three-dimensional parameters of limitation on a path of linear time. The purpose of studying this field is individual realization that consciousness is not actually divided into different forms of life, when viewed from the perspective of unity at the Source level.

One Life generates multi-dimensionally into a myriad of unique aspects and is thus manifesting as a multitude of visually separate life forms when immersed into three-dimensionality passing along a trajectory of linear time. This immersion into the material plane is cyclical in nature, whereas all aspects oscillate in a continuous transition in and out of manifestation as physical form.

Until each perennial manifesting aspect comes to an individual understanding of connectedness to this One Life and demonstrates this knowledge via action while in material form, said aspect is obligated to return in physical form and do so as many times as necessary for realization and application to occur.

Realization of this One Life principle underlying all manifested life forms is only possible to recognize through the process of spiritual introspection. The external world is able to provide clues to this unity but access to and direct understanding is an internal experience found via the practice of multidimensional meditation on a regular basis. Meditation is the true key to Applied Metaphysics.

The Source, otherwise known as the First Cause of the Universe or God, is not able to be found in the external world. Three dimensionality and linear time are expressions of the backdrop against which each individuated aspect of the Source plays his or her drama of self-discovery leading eventually to understanding that the answer to Life’s riddle is buried deep within the heart of all aspects. Multidimensional meditation is the direct route to the universal Source, so when an aspect journeys away from external perception to the very center of consciousness, realization flashes in a perceptual paradigm shift and all aspects are merged as a unified whole.

A true understanding of consciousness unified at the Source level, when applied on an individual basis by aspects presently immersed in physical form, fundamentally changes the way an aspect views other aspects with whom he or she comes in contact. Competition, an action of separated identities, is transformed into co-operation, an act of unified consciousness identification, when the One Life principle is applied to human interaction and exchange.

During the corporeal phase of existence, any aspect of the Source has opportunity for making a conscious choice between belief in the illusion of separation into individualized life forms or unification of all aspects in harmony as the ultimate reality. A divided mind on this critical issue guarantees perpetuation of the serial life cycle, incorporating the process of death and rebirth for said aspect to repeat the lesson. Repetition of this exercise is also the result of conscious decision to uphold the illusion by embracing separation. Disharmony and disunion are the oppositional outcomes derived through belief in the separation, especially when used for the purpose of individual gain at the expense of another incarnating aspect's advancement while embodied in form. Co-operation in all manners of exchange, not competition, is the key to building a new paradigm of mutual prosperity here on planet Earth.

Hierarchial pyramids of temporal power are fueled by individual greed and maintain their dominance over the populace via economic bondage and, if necessary, physical destruction of those who oppose their authority to the point where their power bases are thus threatened. Private corporations, in concert with political bureaucracies enforce this subservience either through clever media generated methods of persuasion, as demonstrated in the democracies of western civilization or by propaganda and coercion in authoritarian secular dictatorship states and fundamentalist theocracies which fuse government with religious dogma. Add organized crime syndicates and international terrorist cells to the mix and one can easily visualize a laberynth of of separationist obstacles to the true decentralist whose only service to higher authority is to the One Life within all life forms who is accessed internally via the art of meditation - the universal Source.

The proverbial beast who stands as dweller at the threshold when a person has embarked upon the path of deep meditation is externalized in the manifestation of these hierarchial pyramids of economic and political power. The meditator is required to recognize that the dweller is actually the shadow or egoic personality of the aspect. When the ego is ready and willing to let release adherance to the illusion of individualized existence, the dweller vanishes and the light of the source reveals the truth. There is no separation - only union. There is no longer a dichotomy between subject and object when an aspect of the Source returns to his or her point of origin, primal first cause of the universe.

In order to translate this process on an external scale, belief in the proverbial beast must be transcended. To do this, one must sever attachment to the benefits of continued servitude and no longer allow dependence upon the hierarchial power structures for sustinance. In basic economic terms, this severance is effected through mass implementation of consumer boycotts upon large scale providers of goods and services with conscious choice to procure essential provisions from decentralized sources of supply, even if the monetary cost is greater. In political terms this process is done via grassroots monitoring of elected officials and their legislative actions on all levels from town and city, through state and provencial, and ultimately to national government and international organizational bodies. Such is possible in countries embracing the rule of law, such as the United States of America and western-style parliamentary democracies. Should such monitoring reveal either corruption or or influence manipulation by national or multi-national corporate lobbyists it is the obligation of every informed constituent to notify said elected officials that such action is not in the best interest of the people whom they serve. Failure to change policy decisions upon such notification is grounds for withdrawal of electoral support in the next election and promotion of candidates who favor localized economics and political decentralization.

In the United States, decentralist wings exist in both of the predominant political parties. Within the Democratic Party there exists the Democratic Freedom Caucus and the same holds true for the Republican Party via the Republican Liberty Caucus. Minor independent political parties such as the Green Party, taking environmental issues further than proponents within the Democratic Party, and the Libertarian Party, extending individual freedoms beyond the scope found within the Republican Party, also exist. However supporters tend to detract voters from the major parties whose decentralist caucuses they mirror and thus inadvertently assist the opposing major political party to tip an election in their favor. Both the Democratic Freedom Caucus and the Republican Liberty Caucus need to formulate need to formulate Decentralist Platform Committees for their respective major political party. Then invitations to the Greens by the Democrats and Libertarians by the Republicans on these respective Decentralist Platform Committees need to be extended which would add to electoral strength of said respective major parties.

Should decentralist platform bids fail to garner majority support in the Democratic or Republican Parties, the left and right factions of decentralism in the minor political parties, i.e. the Greens and the Libertarians, must seek common ground in order to effect a united political base. The next logical step would be to invite the respective decentralist caucus members from each of the major parties and thereby create a unified Decentralist Party with enough grassroots political support to upset the political dominance of both the Democrats and the Republicans. Internal change within the major parties through adoption of decentralist platforms is far preferable to attempting creation of a new political party in the United States, as most state election laws currently put third parties at in a position of significant disadvantage in when candidates try to have their names placed on the November ballot. Decentralist Platform Committee Forums

Unified Decentralists who are fully grounded via regular application of multidimensional meditation have a golden opportunity to provide the major catalyst toward an acceleration of both economic and political decentralization by using synchronized meditation complimented with practical demonstrations on a human scale. Active spiritual and material participation in this critical process of localized transformation is vital toward eventual manifestation as a global phenomenon. Now is the time for plugging into this unlimited energy of the Source and sharing by example!

Politics in the United States


Presented by Joseph H. Bryan-Royster of Occupy Cape Ann at the 1st Occupy National Gathering in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 2, 2012

We, the members of our local general assemblies in the Occupy Movement have gathered together here in Philadelphia - at the birthplace of our independence and liberty to collectively seek a new vision for the United States of America; one that is transparent in nature, founded in horizontal direct democracy, reached through local consensus, and then implemented by our elected representatives as authorized by the Constitution of this Republic.

We the people are sovereign individuals - acting collectively for the common good. Personhood belongs to individual people - not to corporations formed for private profit. Election of candidates for political office must be funded publicly and equally by the people and these rights have to be protected and preserved with amendments to the Constitution. However, before this is able to happen here in the USA the 99% need to wake up to reality!

The 1% has methodically constructed a Financial Pyramid of mind control over the economy. In the United States of America since the age of the “robber barons” back in the 19th century. Decentralized family farms and local shopkeepers were soon replaced by industrial factories taking the common people away from growing their own food and providing for themselves. With the refining of oil came dependence on fossil fuels and convenience of the automobile. With the harnessing of electricity came radio, television, and an addiction to entertainment. We did not see the deliberate consolidation of resources by corporations behind the scenes. We no longer have the means to provide for our needs because we allowed them to take it!

Here is a one dollar bill – A Federal Reserve Private Bank Note - with no true monetary value because it is fiat currency - printed without any backing of silver to establish its actual worth. All transactions within the market economy are based on this unit, or its foreign equivalents. We, the 99%, are forced to earn, spend, and borrow money in order to survive in this system. The Democratic and Republican parties have failed to promote economic equality in America and we the people can no longer count on them to represent us, especially since the Citizens United decision by the U. S. Supreme Court allowed unlimited private funding of candidates.

Public funding of elections, on an equal basis for all candidates running for office, is the only fair way to ensure that there is a level playing field for everyone involved. Corporations are not People! Money is not Speech! To reverse this, Constitutional amendments are required. If the two political parties are unable to serve the collective will of the people, then we need to create an alternative alliance of Independent candidates committed to uphold consensus decisions made by community assemblies. Organize this effectively like a third political party.

Establish a co-operative decentralized network of local economies to provide material needs for the people and reclaim our right to produce goods and services for ourselves at fair value. Consensus-based Intentional Communities and General Assemblies in the Occupy Movement have the opportunity to synthesize localized Solidarity Economies by sharing their resources.

We will build a parallel grass-roots system separate from the inter-corporate market system. Eventually, we will not have to support the Financial Pyramid of the 1%. We will not work for private profit of corporate shareholders, nor will we buy their goods or services. Sustainable, open-ended boycotts will be possible once the decentralized alternative is strong enough to dismantle the Financial Pyramid of the 1%, causing it to collapse of its own weight when the 99% ceases to serve the inter-corporate market system and starts to create a new economy.

Wall Street operates like a gambling casino in Las Vegas. The public trading of stocks, bonds, and derivatives are bets made against the collective future of the 99%. In 2008 the economy tanked and we took the hit. Then the investment bankers who profited were bailed out and we the taxpayers are expected to pay. The market economy is now proven to be bankrupt!

Establish an Interface between Inter-Occupy and the Fellowship for Intentional Community. Transform all local Occupations in the movement into functioning Intentional Communities. Build an alternative decentralized network of green worker-owned co-operative industries. Create local currencies and start exchanging goods and services without use of U. S. Dollars. Monitor politicians at all levels for compliance with local consensus decisions by the people. Forge a Communitarian Alliance of Independent Candidates running as a virtual Third Party. Mobilize a sustainable open-ended consumer boycott of inter-corporate goods and services. Practice principles of Solidarity Economy as Co-operative Decentralism emerges in the USA!

Occupy Wall Street! Occupy Philadelphia! Occupy the United States of America!

~ New Pink Rose Bush planted in Susan's Garden ~
(Re-post from July 28, 2015)

My wife and I bought a pair of pink shrub roses and planted them in our garden back in 1997. Mysteriously, in July of 2008, one of the plants suddenly turned brown and appeared to have died. On the 15th of May in 2009, I was planting Morning Glory seeds along the fence when I noticed a new shoot springing from the roots of the rose bush which I thought had died. This is symbolic of the alchemical process known as Palingenesis…

Palingenesis (/ˌpælɪnˈdʒɛnəsɪs/; or palingenesia) is a concept of rebirth or re-creation, used in various contexts in philosophy, theology, politics, and biology. Its meaning stems from Greek palin, meaning again, and genesis, meaning birth.

After a month of soggy weather in the Northeast, the sun was shining brightly on the Fourth of July as the first bud on Susan's regenerated rose bush bloomed! But, before the Summer had ended, it withered and died.

On May 30, 2017 I planted a pink rose bush in Susan's garden in New Bedford, Massachusetts to honor our 30 years of marriage together... transmuted as Love in Friendship.  ~ JDHWB-R
