[CTBNM] One Down, So Many Left to Go . . .

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 7:40 AM (07:40)

One down already, before CTBNM has raised any money, set up a real website, or anything!

While Judge Pamela Smith wasn’t even on the list of targeted judges, and it didn’t involve an election, as CTB-Colorado, which we’re hoping can serve as a template for CTB-NM, has been using, it still works — one judge using her position to screw people out of their stuff is now off the bench.

And what was she doing moonlighting at the Office of the Medical Investigator while serving as a judge? Isn’t that a bit of a conflict of interest?

Clearing the Bench New Mexico

Filed under: Networking, Organizing, Politics, Principles, Resistance — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:56 PM (23:56)

Getting tired of judges who view the federal and State Constitutions as their personal Charmin rolls where your liberty and property are concerned?

In New Mexico, if a judge seeking to be retained during an election receives less than 57 % of the votes cast in his / her retention race, than the judge in question loses his / her spot on the bench, and returns to the private sector.

Q: What, exactly, did they do to need cleared?[1]

A: What have they done to warrant retention?

The burden of proof isn’t upon us, We The People, to prove that they warrant removal, it’s upon them to prove that they warrant retention.

The intent here with Clear the Bench New Mexico is to develop something along the lines of Clear the Bench Colorado (CTBC)

A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace, by John Perry Barlow

Filed under: Philosophy, Politics, Principles, Privacy, Technology — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 12:28 AM (00:28)

A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

by John Perry Barlow <barlow@eff.org>

Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.

We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one, so I address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty itself always speaks. I declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us. You have no moral right to rule us nor do you possess any methods of enforcement we have true reason to fear.

Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. You have neither solicited nor received ours. We did not invite you. You do not know us, nor do you know our world. Cyberspace does not lie within your borders. Do not think that you can build it, as though it were a public construction project. You cannot. It is an act of nature and it grows itself through our collective actions.

You have not engaged in our great and gathering conversation, nor did you create the wealth of our marketplaces. You do not know our culture, our ethics, or the unwritten codes that already provide our society more order than could be obtained by any of your impositions.

You claim there are problems among us that you need to solve. You use this claim as an excuse to invade our precincts. Many of these problems don’t exist. Where there are real conflicts, where there are wrongs, we will identify them and address them by our means. We are forming our own Social Contract. This governance will arise according to the conditions of our world, not yours. Our world is different.

Cyberspace consists of transactions, relationships, and thought itself, arrayed like a standing wave in the web of our communications. Ours is a world that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live.

We are creating a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth.

We are creating a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.

Your legal concepts of property, expression, identity, movement, and context do not apply to us. They are all based on matter, and there is no matter here.

Our identities have no bodies, so, unlike you, we cannot obtain order by physical coercion. We believe that from ethics, enlightened self-interest, and the commonweal, our governance will emerge. Our identities may be distributed across many of your jurisdictions. The only law that all our constituent cultures would generally recognize is the Golden Rule. We hope we will be able to build our particular solutions on that basis. But we cannot accept the solutions you are attempting to impose.

In the United States, you have today created a law, the Telecommunications Reform Act, which repudiates your own Constitution and insults the dreams of Jefferson, Washington, Mill, Madison, DeToqueville, and Brandeis. These dreams must now be born anew in us.

You are terrified of your own children, since they are natives in a world where you will always be immigrants. Because you fear them, you entrust your bureaucracies with the parental responsibilities you are too cowardly to confront yourselves. In our world, all the sentiments and expressions of humanity, from the debasing to the angelic, are parts of a seamless whole, the global conversation of bits. We cannot separate the air that chokes from the air upon which wings beat.

In China, Germany, France, Russia, Singapore, Italy and the United States, you are trying to ward off the virus of liberty by erecting guard posts at the frontiers of Cyberspace. These may keep out the contagion for a small time, but they will not work in a world that will soon be blanketed in bit-bearing media.

Your increasingly obsolete information industries would perpetuate themselves by proposing laws, in America and elsewhere, that claim to own speech itself throughout the world. These laws would declare ideas to be another industrial product, no more noble than pig iron. In our world, whatever the human mind may create can be reproduced and distributed infinitely at no cost. The global conveyance of thought no longer requires your factories to accomplish.

These increasingly hostile and colonial measures place us in the same position as those previous lovers of freedom and self-determination who had to reject the authorities of distant, uninformed powers. We must declare our virtual selves immune to your sovereignty, even as we continue to consent to your rule over our bodies. We will spread ourselves across the Planet so that no one can arrest our thoughts.

We will create a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace. May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments have made before.

Davos, Switzerland

  1. Posted to Diaspora*

    I’ll admit to being surprised by The Orville (I’ve never been any fan of Seth McFarlane — I can’t stand Family Guy and American Dad). The Orville is looking like a keeper.

    And I’ve been seeing clips on YouTube about internal problems in Trekworld over such things as intellectual property rights, who owns what, etc.

    Still, it seems that the purpose of a show’s first season is to introduce the characters and background universe, and to set the tone for the rest of the series (assuming that there is a rest of the series).

  2. Posted to Facebook

    After they get “all” of the blades, the surrender bins will be relabeled for blunt objects.

    “Don’t be a dick — drop your brick!”

    Of course, their current slogan of “Only cowards carry” seems to be generically applicable, so they’ll probably keep that one.

Helloween — Another Shot of Life [Video with Lyrics]

Filed under: Life, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:21 AM (01:21)

I am no stranger to darkness
I am no stranger to pain
I had to suffer ’till I went insane
Learning from pain and from heartaches
How to forgive and forget
Never give up ’cause life goes on again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

If you feel strange and emotional
Carrying the weight of the world
Open your soul and let the spirit in
It’s not the end of the rainbow
It’s not the end of the line
Your time will come and you will rise again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life

I’m leaving all my pain away
My sorrows are not here to stay
Tomorrow comes another day
Another hope, another try

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny
