A New Plan of Action

by Thomas Mick

Since writing my article, A Plan of Action, in January of 2014, the tyranny of the oligarchs controlling America has become increasingly and openly hostile to American principles and our Natural Rights. The oligarchs seem to have no more need for masking either their contempt for individual liberty or their intentions for its destruction. The plan I proposed in 2014, utilized the Grand Jury under common law and constitutional Sheriffs as important components for identifying and removing agents of the oligarchy in our local government; my thinking along those lines has changed considerably since. 

In late February 2015, I came across a research report I had read initially in the late 90’s; a report I couldn’t bring myself to accept at that time because of cognitive dissonance. I wasn’t ready in my heart and spirit to accept what the report revealed; the Constitution hasn’t been in force and effect since March 27, 1861, when 7 of the 34 states in the Union at that time walked off the floor of Congress and seceded from the Union. It wasn’t a lack of quorum that destroyed the Union, it was the refusal of the Northern States to address the legitimate issues of the South; namely, to stop forcing them to pay a disproportional share of the expenses of the Federal Government, through the confiscatory tariffs imposed on their imports from Europe in exchange for their tobacco and cotton exports.  

The intransigence of the northern mercantile states, caused the separation of the southern agrarian ones, by violating the Natural Rights of the people in those states to defend their economies from the majority votes in the North. Under the Union, the South simply could not muster the votes in Congress to represent their interests against the mercantile interests in the North. I believe this economic tyranny, made remaining in the Union intolerable to the people of the South. Once force was used to impose the will of the North on the South, I believe it invalidated the Constitution that formed the Union, since there was no longer a mutually beneficial agreement between the States and the Federal government it created. All of this history is to illustrate an important fact, the people have not been served by the Constitution, since early 1861.  

Until we destroy the corporate system built by the oligarchy that gained control of the republic, constitutional arguments are irrelevant in their courts; making them is wasting time and resources fighting in a system designed to defeat us. The oath of office taken by officials, in both state and Federal office today, is to the corporate Constitution of the United States of America, not the organic Constitution for the United States of America. Everything about the paradigm we’re in today is a counterfeit of what was founded, in 1788.

All the discussion of constitutional law is meaningless in our fight to return to liberty, and the oligarchs know it; they neutralized that troublesome document generations ago through the law of necessity. Since then, we’ve been living under an illusion they needed to maintain, while they subtly and slowly transformed us into corporate fictions under their rules.  

Returning to liberty will not require returning to a Constitution that has been lost in history, but understanding and returning to the foundation that was established with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. Only then, can we proceed forward in freedom and either re-institute the organic Constitution and Bill of Rights or institute a different form that will better secure our Natural Rights going forward. The decision has and always will be ours to make, not rulers.  

During the colonial period, us Americans had become accustomed to managing our own affairs and governing ourselves. Parliament and the Crown were distant and unable to deal with the day to day issues of the colonies. We had governors beholden to the Crown and tax collectors, but most of the real governance was done by us, through our own colonial governments. We naturally assumed a posture of independence long before the Declaration of Independence was ever proposed.  

The Plan  

The plan is quite simple and based on just two sentences in the Declaration of Independence:  

“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.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” 

Just to be clear, a natural right is any activity that doesn't result in harm to another sentient being, except in defensive force when someone attacks your rights.  

A wrong is any action that harms another sentient being by initiating violence against them, judicially, legislatively, physically, or otherwise. 

Consistent with the necessary 1st law of nature, the right of self-defense, the first step of any community should be to form Natural Law militias, composed of members of the community capable of defending it by armed defensive force. This force is necessary for defending our Natural Rights from any threat posed against us.  

Membership in the militia must exclude all active government officials, since tyranny flows primarily from the abuse of government power. It is more likely than not that major offensive action will flow from that quarter and the militia must always be on guard against it. Whenever the rights of any one of us is trampled, the stage is set against all of us. Therefore, there should be no tolerance of 'necessary' or 'reasonable' infringements on the rights of anyone for any reason. 

The militia should elect officers from among their ranks, someone everyone respects for their ability to lead, not command, free people in times of trouble. The militia must provide their own arms and implements of war and be proficient in their use. Our community should provide logistical support for the militia during times of conflict, such as ammunition, medical supplies and services, as well as other needs of the militia that may arise in defense of our Natural Rights. 

Since the militia consists of members of our community and we’re defending our rights, it only makes sense to support it. Once the Militia has been formed and discipline established, those within it should exercise their Natural Right of self-defense as follows:  

Beginning at the most local level, determine who in government office is securing our Natural Rights or attacking them. Once that has been determined, the following must be done depending on the status of the officer.  

  • Only offices that are necessary to assist us in securing our Natural Rights from harm are lawful, should exist, and be supported by us.  
  • If an unlawful office exists, attacking our Natural Rights by plundering or otherwise oppressing us, abolish it with defensive force. 
  • If an officer of a lawful office, is attacking our Natural Rights by their official actions, remove them by force of arms and replace them. 
This completes the new plan of action to restore America to its original foundation of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.
