Book Format

I found a Drupal software package that allows easy publishing, managing and organizing a wide variety of content on a website. Drupal is an open source software maintained and developed by a community of hundreds of thousands of users and developers. Drupal is a cutting-edge platform that supports the latest technologies that the Web has to offer.  The Web site civilizationascent.org is written in book form and provides a Table of Contents that allows any reader to select any topic of interest. The goal is to motivate readers' interest in the welfare of their nation as it participates in the development of our world civilization.

Born dyslexic in the remote village of Peewee, West Virginia during the depression era-07-13-31. Born energetic and eager to joyfully engage living life through my formative years of opportunity, education-marriage-career, and life experiences. Upon retirement, at age 65, I chose to continue oil painting and training to become a global journalist concentrating on the United States Constitution and Federalist Papers written by Hamilton, Jay, and Madison. These studies led to globalization studies of critical issues that challenge the survival of humankind. 

ORIGIN OF AN INFINITE FIELD OF ENERGY THAT ENCOMPASSES ALL FORMS OF MATTER KNOWN TO HUMANKIND

I see an infinite field of energy that creates, regenerates, and perpetuates all universes, galaxies, planets, and black holes-reason, experience, and human knowledge of science leads me to believe imaginary gods are created by misguided past and present primitive religious leaders taught to use well intentioned primitive doctrine to control the minds and beliefs of those that are subject to their influence. This mindset slowed and eroded the pursuit of enlightenment and knowledge of science. Advances in science, technology, and enlightenment has yet to eliminate a primitive need to believe, worship, and follow the doctrine, rituals, and construction of temples required by extreme national and religious leaders seeking control, power, and obedience of followers subject to their absolute dominance and control. Humankind lives in perpetual conflict and chaos because extreme sociopaths did and still do control many global tribes, states, and nations that refuse to allow any form of democratic government to interfere with their control and domination over their subject's lives-such is the state of humankind today.

Research has yet to identify the origin of an infinite field of energy-let's leave it at that. Science has established that humankind is a singularity of evolution known as homo sapient. Life emerged during the formation of planet earth. From the evolution of species, homo sapient advanced with innate instincts that allowed awareness of death, extreme fear, and innate senses that provided reasoning, imagination, and the formation of tribes, nations, and civilizations. As time passed, tribes through fear of the unknown, formed and worshipped differing forms of gods. All past civilizations rose and vanished as a result of clashes between tribes and nations-thus driving a need for a new moderate civilization with advanced forms of governments that could sustain a moderate civilization. That goal has yet to be achieved. 

This infinite field of energy encompasses all universes and gave us a planet we call home. The evolution of this planet has survived shifting tectonic plates-bombarding meteorites-exploding volcanoes-cyclic environment changes-human degradation of the environment-and possible failure to support life. All past civilizations were destroyed by extremist sociopath leaders that divided instead of uniting tribes and nations. Today, extreme global religious and government leaders continue to divide tribes and nations and destroy any chance of establishing a moderate and sustainable civilization.

Per Wikamedia, the multiverse (or meta-universe) is the hypothetical set of finite and infinite possible universes, including the universe which we live. Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, and the physical laws and constants that describe them.

CREATION OF PLANET EARTH-Pending

 EMERGEANCE OF LIFE ON PLANET EARTH

Before humankind, animals thrived for many millions of years. Humans at the Homo level appeared only very recently, following tens of millions of years of evolution among the Old World primates per Edward O. Wilson, The Meaning of Human Existence. "The definitive part of the long creation story evidently began with the primitive Homo habilis (or a species closely related to it" two million years ago. Prior  to the habilines the  prehumans had been animals. "Instead, we are self-made, independent, alone, and fragile, a biological species adapted to live in a biological world."

"The Meaning of Human Existence" by Edward O. Wilson is generally recognized as one of the several leading biologists in the world. He is acknowledged as the creator of two scientific disciplines (island, biogeography and sociobiology), three unifying concepts for science and the humanities jointly (biophilia, biodiversity studies and Consilience), and one major technological advance in the  study of global biodiversity (The Encylopedia of Life). Among more than one hundred awards he has received worldwide  are the U.S. National Medal of Science,the Crafoord Prize (equivalent of the Nobel, for ecology) of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the International Prize of Biology of Japan: and in letters, two Pulitzer Prizes in nonfiction, the Nonino and Serono Prizes of Italy, and the COSMOS prize of Japan. He is currently Honorary Curator in Entomology and University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University. Comment: taken from "About the Author"

In "The Meaning of Human Existence" by Edward O. Wilson-P184 he stated "The cost to society as a whole of the bowed head has been enormous. Evaluation is a fundamental part of the universe, not just in living organisms, but everywhere, at every level. Its analysis is vital to biology, including medicine, microbiology, and agronomy. Furthermore psychologyanthropology, and even the history of religion itself makes no sense without evolution as the key component followed through the passage of time. The explicit denial of evolution presented as a part of a "creation science"is an outright falsehood, the adult equivalent of plugging one's ears, and a deficit to any society that chooses to acquiesce in this manner to a fundamentalist faith." 


In "God and the Multiverse-Humanities Expanding View of the Cosmo" Victor J Stenger-P377 states "Religion claims to teach us humility. But it really trades in a false pride, telling people they are the children of God, that they are the center of the Universe and the reason for its existence-that they'll live forever if they just follow instructions." He also states "Even though magical thinking and hubris may still destroy us, we can hope that our unique abilities will lead  to a better future"


PRIMITIVE HUMAN BEHAVIOR-Pending     My View


Based on my lifetime experience I see human behavior as follows: Class one-Natural, Class One-High Expectations, Class Three-Futurists, Class Four-Sociopaths.

Class One-Natural

Class Two-High Expections

Class Four-Sociopaths

PAST CIVILIZATIONS-Pending

FUTURE CIVILIZATIONS

Absolutely necessary to pool human and natural resources necessary to build to protect an environment that sustains life and react to global disasters.

Now in this twenty first century, we find ourselves facing nuclear devastation due to differences between tribes and nations-Christians and non-Christians-partisan political parties-conservative versus liberal beliefs-racial divides-citizens contempt for government and religious leaders-and citizens ignorant of Constitutional Republic law with inherent principles. The major difference being the refusal of Christians and non-Christians to accept that science, supported by knowledge of the laws of the universe-planet-environment-and nature is the most constructive path to a moderate sustainable civilization.

 

A huge majority of moderate humans is satisfied living moderate lives that include schooling-labor-marriage-children-and Grandparenting. This majority of moderate beings, with rare exceptions, is dominated by leaders whose behavior ranges from extremist to sociopaths.  Both extremists and sociopaths are born with personalities and social skills that attract and  enable them to manipulate moderate humans-that explains why all past civilizations  have risen and collapsed since the beginning of humanity. Civilizationascent.org, is designed for world citizens seeking independence of thought, reasoning, and the freedom to act independently of special interests that seek to control what you do, how you act, and what you believe. Hopefully, this website leads to purpose, meaning, and hope for world citizens seeking a moderate and sustaining civilization. It's important to recognize that citizens, given freedom, liberal educations, and a moderate society reach a higher level of enlightenment, than those trapped in extremist sects-religions-cultures-tribes-and nations driven by extremely divided government and religious leaders. The greatest roadblock to enlightenment is extreme religious beliefs that God created millions of universes, galaxies, and planets for his pleasure and a need to be idolized-worshipped-having  endless religions established with differing temples, doctrines, and degrees of worship. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             As a child, my beliefs were formed in a one room church, where local farmers preached based on their understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ's sermons. I view God encouraging humankind to be good neighbors-generous-principled-forgiving-and an example for all. I don't see God needing or seeking aggrandizement from his followers- I do see God as desiring followers to be guardians of his planet's environment and human respect and care for the quality of life for all citizens of this planet. Many primitive people worship God based on faith in creation and the expectation of an afterlife while more enlightened people choose evolution based on scientific studies of an all encompassing infinite energy field that controls all forms of matter and life-including the environment and humankind. This extreme belief in Gods destroyed tribes and nations and ultimately all past civilizations.The ultimate goal is to construct a future,based on enlightened world citizens dedicated to understanding evolution and the need for a moderate and sustainable global civilization. Enlightenment for world citizens begins by attaining human rights-freedom-liberal education-and an environment that sustains life while allowing an opportunity to lead natural lives that form personal values-marriage-children-and human rights for each citizen of every tribe and nation. Leaders that divided instead of uniting tribes and nations. Today, extreme global religious and government leaders continue to divide tribes and nations and destroy any chance of establishing a moderate and sustainable civilization.


Now, it's time to develop advanced quality education programs that assure global children reach a level of enlightenment that allows a majority of global citizens to elect, and hold accountable, moderate leaders that can guide humankind to a moderate sustainable civilization. That goal requires funding-planning-training, and preparing future generations to establish a moderate government that can lead to a sustainable moderate civilization. Global citizens must actively and effectively take responsibility for providing quality lives for themselves, family, and future generations-dependance on primitive gods to protect us from our extreme destructive behavior is irrational and unreasonable-science has advanced to a degree that primitive concepts of God are receding as new generations seek a calm and rational world in which all live quality lives in a science driven world. Our science driven world faces human and environmental challenges that require humans taking responsibility for the future.

 

 

All tribes and nation's goals are to establish moderate governments that serve the common welfare, respects the planets environment, and living in harmony with nature and one another-meeting these goals assures a sustainable civilization so long as this all encompassing Infinite Energy Field permits. 

 

Human Behavior-My View 


Human behavior, at any given time, ranges somewhere between being moderate to sociopathic--any intelligent observer of this extremely disturbed civilization knows that. Each human, at any given moment, is capable of extreme behavior. Sociopaths have acquired a set of skills that allow them to easily control the minds and reasoning of those seeking to yield their independence and responsibilities for their children, government, and environment. For instance, the United States abandoned the Constitution and Congress in exchange for Partisan Political Parties and Religious Institutions that dictate how citizens, governors, senators, and congressmen must vote-on government legislation that favors the interest of partisan political parties that have no regard for the Constitution or the common welfare of the nation. The huge divide between political parties, religious beliefs, and secular beliefs do not allow an electorate to reach a consensus on what they expect from their elected leaders. Therefore, it's become impossible to avoid a dysfunctional government..Today, government and religious sociopaths dictate policies that assure conflict and chaos for moderates-they dictate policies that fail to serve the common welfare of the world-societies-health-race relations, etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

The Emergence of Primitive Homo sapiens



The Concept of God

 

The Birth we Call Death  by Paul H. Dunn and Richard M. Eyre: "With all sincerity, we commend this little volume to those who are seeking comfort in time of heartache and sorrow." My critique of this book reflects  that quotes from non LDS members far exceed those LDS quotes that emphasize immortality after death.

 

Science has taught humankind that evolution of life on earth introduced a species we now call Homo sapient. This specie, is irrelevant in regard an infinite energy field that encompasses all matter known to humankind-an insignificant blip in space time. This complex new animal came out of Africa and spread across the surface of the planet in the form of tribes-fear of the unknown was pervasive and each tribe created gods to ease their fears and sacrifices to appease them. As time passed, prophets portrayed Jesus Christ, son-of-God, as a non-violent voice pleading for humankind to live lives that served the common welfare of one and all. No ego or demand to be worshiped, nor temples to be built in his honor, a plain and simple God comfortable in his power.  As time passed, tribes grew to become cities, nations, and eventually civilizations. During this transition, religious institutions chose to portray an ego driven, needy God that demanded continuous worship, endless temples of worship built in his honor, and doctrine and rituals that control the minds, reasoning, and behavior of all followers. Independent minds began the study of science to explain how the earth was formed and the physical laws involved. Science quickly came in conflict with religious institutions that feared member independence, freedom of enlightenment, education,,the origin of God. This conflict has driven the conflict and chaos that have destroyed all past civilizations and now renders our current civilization dysfunctional, with no hope for a moderate and sustaining civilization-perhaps it's time to resolve this conflict between God and science and build a moderate sustainable global civilization. This would meet both God and human expectation-isn't this the goal.

We must  realize that citizens, given freedom, liberal educations, and a moderate society reach a higher level of enlightenment, than those trapped in extremist sects-religions-cultures-tribes-and nations driven by sociopath government and religious leaders. The greatest roadblock to enlightenment is extreme religious beliefs that God dictates the creation of universes and humankind, instead of a science based all encompassing infinite energy field that is continuously evolving all forms of matter and life-including the environment and humankind. The ultimate goal for humankind is to construct a future that allows a moderate and sustainable global civilization. Enlightenment for world citizens begins by attaining human rights-freedom-liberal education-and an environment that allows opportunity to lead natural lives that form personal values-marriage-children-and human rights for each citizen of every tribe and nation.

West Virginia has a giant telescope where humans listen for messages from space. Enrica Fermi [Paradox Effect] thought, along with other scientific minds, thought that not only are we surrounded by other planetary systems-but, there may be life similar to our own. That raises the question of the nature and intelligence of that life. If such life exists and are observing our behavior, they would conclude that our behavior is driven by a deep seated desire to behave in such a manner that our intent is to destroy all our societies-We have to acknowledge that all our past civilizations were built and destroyed because of extreme deviant human behavior. Our current civilization, mostly controlled by sociopaths, is in peril. 

Humans are still discovering civilizations lost in the rubble of the past-why is it that each of these powerful past civilizations reversed its upward trajectory, collapsed inward, and disappeared? All past civilizations rose and advanced on the premise that powerful tribal leaders would create cultures based on faith and obedience to gods created by sociopaths seeking absolute power and control over the lives of all humans. In our current civilization, the United States rose to global economic and military power by establishing a Constitutional Republic Constitution that protects all American citizens rights and privileges, while allowing freedom to worship within the boundaries of Constitutional law. However, over time our civilization is the first to face a future hovering on the brink of disintegrating United States, tribal, and national societies and a planet facing a near fatal world nuclear holocaust.  

Current Civilization

World citizens have experienced the tragedies driven by sociopaths that have charmed their way to ultimate power over citizens, governments, tribes, and entire nations-sociopaths have been a way of life since primitive tribes. Sociopaths are recognized by their talent to mesmerize and gain control of all those that oppose them. History, reference the internet, paints a path of terror driven by past and present sociopaths-recognized by the following behavior: extreme intelligence-charming-delusional-inability to love-spontaneous-intense-no shame,remorse or guilt-lie outrageously-dominates others-wins at all costs-poetically inclined-never apologizes-and always knows the truth. Tribes, nations, and religious organizations that know someone like this should be alarmed. The worlds most recognized sociopath is Adoph Hitler. This sociopath used his skills to dominate an advanced and sophisticated Germany and drove world nations into World World II. Adolph Hitler is only one of many national leaders that have gained absolute power over dysfunctional nations. Today, our planet is exposed to national sociopath leaders that have the power to wreak havoc around the world.

World physicists tell us we inhabit a planet, in one of many universes. We may be the only existing form of life with the ability to reason, imagine, and develop complex systems. We are Homo sapient with a passion to understand our origins and our purpose for being. We create our own Gods and we are our own demons. Our negative impact on the environment and all other life is a result of our extremely bad judgement and behavior.nnnnnnWe can surely agree that enlightenment occurs as we become independent and free to actively use reason, imagination, and observation to gain insight, experience, and accountability. The United States Constitution, Christians, says divinely inspired, grants this right and holds citizens responsible for being knowledgeable, active, and accountable for enforcing all Constitution laws and principles.  A majority of United States Citizens recognizes they are unable to be accountable for their Constitution. Our political leaders have long observed, and perhaps rightfully concluded, that the human race is not prepared to accept this level of responsibility. Therefore, our past and present leaders see no need to require and acquaint citizens with their Constitution and citizen responsibilities. Citizen Constitution responsibilities should be mandatory and taught at every grade level in high schools, colleges, and universities. This Constitution needs a giant leap in the enlightenment of United States Citizens. World nations that see the United States honoring, following, and living up to the requirements and responsibilities of their own Constitution may gain the incentive to follow.

Today, national and universal issues and challenges are acknowledged. The fact is, world leaders and citizens are caught in a trap, of their own making, from which they refuse to escape. Citizens lack the education, enlightenment, and the desire to unite and escape their dependence on, and addiction to, primitive cultures, partisan political parties, religious institutions, and accelerating technological advances. The valuable time necessary to think, act, define, and support goals and policies elected leaders must follow is missing. Citizens are overwhelmed by the advances of technology. Leaders lack an enlightened and supportive base from which to act in the best interest of the common welfare.nnnThe current state of the world tells us we need an advanced form of enlightenment to motivate citizens and leaders of all nations to accept constitutional republic forms of government. We must expedite enlightenment in every way we can. The challenge is to reach a level of enlightenment that would allow and sustain constitution checks and balances that limit the harm knowingly perpetuated by all levels of society. Today, the United States State of the Union reflects a powerful, vast economic and military power that has allowed corrupt partisan political parties, supported by citizens, to divide the nation and weaken the basic foundation of the Constitution and related principles. There is no justification for national leaders, supported by secular and Christian citizens, driving this nation into a dysfunctional state that threatens the future of  the United States and all world nations.

World Nations

United States-Divided, Dysfunctional, Frozen in Time

The United States Constitution is the greatest form of constitutional republic government ever established. Many say divinely inspired. By following this Constitution, the United States could continue to be a beacon of light to all world nations. That light has grown dim-meeting Constitution requirements is no longer the goal. Instead, the new goal is a return to global tribal law followed by mass terror and chaos. The Federalist Papers, intentionally not taught, offers a guide to understanding the necessity of following the Founding Fathers, Constitution, constitutional principles, and the theories behind their words. Thomas Jefferson called The Federalist Papers "the best commentary on the principles of government...ever written." British political philosopher Jon Stuart Mill agreed, adding that The Federalist Papers are "the most instructive treatise we possess on federal government." Alexis de Tocqueville called the collection "an excellent book, which ought to be familiar to the statesmen of all countries." In 1821, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Marshall described the Federalist Papers as "a complete commentary on our Constitution." Today, may be your first knowledge of The Federalist Papers. My impression is that political, education, and religious leaders see no benefit in acquainting citizens with their Constitution. That would explain why the electorate is basically illiterate in regard to the Constitution and The Federalist Papers. Our leaders would rather interpret them to serve their own narrow ideological ends. The State of the Union tells the rest of the story.

The Constitution is designed to assist world citizens seeking enlightenment and a better understanding of the United States. Simply put, enlightenment is living in harmony with oneself and the environment. The scientific revolution produced the Age of Reason, the Age of Enlightenment, and the Age of Analysis. Enlightenment is defined as the era of philosophy, intellectual, scientific and cultural life. These are the attributes required to become a responsible citizen under a constitutional republic form of government where all power rests with citizens that delegate specific powers to government functions and hold them accountable. A constitutional republic form of government requires enlightened citizens, using checks and balances, to protect citizens from the dark side of human nature. Citizens knowledgeable of their government must participate in establishing, implementing, and holding government accountable. Today, citizens still fail to meet these responsibilities. Political parties, with citizen support, have become addicted to partisan politics that abort the Constitution. 

World Nations

There is a desperate need for the education, experience, and enlightenment to prepare youth for the lives they have to live. Youth must be free to cherish gifts of art, music, and wisdom of past generations. Youth independence coupled with reason, imagination, and enlightenment is a function of education, experience, and living in harmony with nature.nnThe future welfare of all nations is dependent on citizens living healthy and principled lives in a sustainable environment. Humans have excelled and exceeded all liberal art and science boundaries. The secrets of the micro and macron world are rapidly identified. Universal boundaries exceeded. Science boundaries are expanding. The secrets of the micro and macron world are being identified. Space travel boundaries are exceeded. Sadly, humans have also exceeded all depravity boundaries. The future is enhanced when believers and non-believers design, follow, and are accountable for a form of government that limits the harm caused by the dark side of human nature. The United States Constitution provided such a government. Human and natural resources are ready and available to meet goals and challenges. Sadly, enlightened human resources are too few to make a difference. The future of civilization depends on new generations of educated and enlightened world citizens capable of holding themselves and their government leaders accountable.

It's important to study the behavior of societies as they adapted to life over past centuries. Given the State of the World today, what lessons did society learn over centuries of positive and negative behavior? In today's global environment nation's citizens and government leaders still fail to provide the leadership necessary to form lasting alliances and bonds between tribes, cultures, races, and religions. United States secular and Christian citizens still fail to negotiate a common bond that would allow a majority of citizens to negotiate their differences and provide guidance and support to their elected government leaders. In the process of becoming a powerful leader one becomes trapped in a web from which there is no escape. Leading a volatile nation composed of various tribes, cultures, and invariably political and religious institutions one realizes critical differences cannot be reconciled. At that point there is no positive exit strategy. Most leaders of world nations are faced with variations of this dilemma. The United States is no exception. It's a tragic human condition that drives continuous world conflict, chaos, and suffering. The bright side is the human capacity for reasoning, imagination, and recognizing the beauty experienced through the environment, arts, science, and the capacity to love and care for one another.

Christian and secular expectations must merge and become realistic as enlightenment and knowledge reaches all inhabitants around the world. No one nation stands out as a beacon of light to all other nations. The United States must renew its pledge to be that beacon of light that provides hope for all world nations. This is not an impossible dream. It can be reality provided we follow a constitutional republic form of government. There is no other way. It is not logical to believe a power greater than ourselves intentionally created a dark side of human nature.  Continuous desecration of the planet and all life was and still is driven by humans that refuse to be accountable for their bad judgement and behavior. Believers and non-believers are equally responsible for holding each other accountable to the Constitution and universal truths.The struggle to fulfill the demands of the Constitution began the day the Constitution was signed and continues through today.  Periods of  national highs followed by decades of recent lows  brought about the dysfunctional State of the Union we face today. We are on a slippery slope when we believe the dark side of human nature cannot be limited.  Continuous desecration of the planet and all life was and still is driven by humans that refuse to be accountable.  Believers and non-believers are equally responsible for holding all accountable to the Constitution.nnnThe future of all nations is dependent on the United States having a sustainable economy and a functional government. Sadly, the United States lacks these qualities. The State of the Union speaks for itself. The Founding Fathers, Constitution opened the door to a freedom never dreamed of by past generations. Today, we realize the Constitution demands more than politicians or citizens are willing to give. Citizens live and participate in a fantasy world believing that they are meeting Founding Fathers,  Constitution, related principles, and their own personal and spiritual expectations. Leaders and citizens have a mutual distrust and fear of one another.

This Book suggests that citizens of all nations prepare themselves to embrace a way of life that requires constitutional republic forms of government, advancement of education and enlightenment, and freedom from primitive cultures and beliefs that drive partisan political parties, religious institutions, and special interests use extreme measures that are destructive to families, societies, and governments. There are several reasons for this Book. First, is to define why nations are in crisis. Second, is to define universal issues critical to our future. Third, is to identify and resolve critical United States issues critical to its future. Forth, is to show why our civilization faces a critical turning point. The Fifth , is to show how world citizens can gain empowerment and establish governments of their own choosing. The Sixth , is to propose a universal mission statement. Seventh, is to propose a United States mission statement that gives unity, purpose, and direction to citizens. The Eighth, is to secure the future of civilization as we pursue a path that leads to a rising civilization where all world citizens are accountable for the quality of life of all world citizens. 

Are United States Citizens proud of the State of the Union?  Are citizens pleased they gave all their power to partisan political parties that control how their leaders vote and act. Do secular and Christian Citizens,  respect the government leaders they elect and maintain in the office. No. Do citizens respect themselves? Do citizens set good examples for their children? Should the nations objectives and goals be to form and follow a constructive path that optimizes quality life for all United States and world citizens? Yes. Should citizens strive to be an inspiration to future generations? Yes. Do rapid advances of technology allow for a peaceful transition of cultures, races, and beliefs. No. Critical clashes are inevitable. Are we taking time to cherish and nourish those senses that inspire and elevate our positive nature as we adapt to rapidly advancing technology? Do secular and Christian citizens have the necessary restraint to control addictions to all forms of drugs, obesity, and media and computer abstractions? No. A global cataclysmic evolution is taking place and it is messy. What are government and religious leaders for if they fail to lead citizens through these critical stages? Citizens cannot lead, will not follow, and refuse to define and agree on a constructive path they would be willing to follow and support? They obviously refuse to support the Constitution, religious, and innate principles. The examples and principles established by Jesus Christ and all other ancient prophets and wise men have failed to motivate a majority willing to commit, act, or be accountable. The last hope is that the United States or world citizens reach a stage of enlightenment where they alone decide to commit to all the above because it pleasures them to do so. We can all hope that time is near.

Our lives are guided by changes in expectations. Prior to development of  thirteen English colonies, in North America, people had little acquaintance with freedom, independence, and high expectations. Alone, on a new continent, immigrants realized their independence and the need to provide for themselves.  This independence drove thirteen colonies to adopt and fight for a constitutional republic form of government, that if followed, would be accountable for meeting Constitution  requirements. This Constitution was the greatest human rights advancement ever experienced. The thirteen colonies  ratified and accepted responsibility for the Constitution. United States leaders and citizens immediately recognized that their Constitution requirements and principles demanded what they were unwilling to give. Leaders realized the futility of teaching citizens Constitution requirements, responsibilities, and principles.

Utah

Utah is a microcosm of  the positive and negative behavior of  humankind on the surface of planet earth. Utah was settled by a sect established by Joseph Smith the leader of a church now called Latter Day Saints-previously known as Mornons.

In 1940, after receiving his law degree and passing the Washington D.C. bar exam, he became an FBI Special Agent.[7] FBI memos have described his work at the Bureau as mainly clerical and administrative.[4] Skousen  left the FBI in 1951. Ironically, the FBI would maintain a file on Skousen that would come to number more than 2,000 pages.[4]

From 1951 to 1955, he taught at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah. In 1956, Salt Lake City mayor Adiel F. Stewart hired Skousen to serve as police chief in the wake of a police department scandal.[7] Skousen was a well-respected police chief for nearly four years.[9]

In 1960, newly elected mayor J. Bracken Lee dismissed Skousen shortly after Skousen raided an illegal poker club where Lee was in attendance.[10][11] National Review commentator Mark Hemingway characterized the gathering as "a friendly card game."[12] Skousen supporters protested the abrupt firing by disrupting a city council meeting[13] and planting burning crosses on Lee's lawn.[14] Lee characterized Skousen's strict enforcement of anti-gambling laws as Gestapo-like.[9][15] Lee said that although Skousen was an anti-communist, he "ran the police department in exactly the same manner as the Communists in Russia operate their government."[12] Time magazine reported in 1960 that Skousen's "real offense seemed to be that he had failed to show enough enthusiasm for Lee's determination to slash the police-department budget." [9] Lee told a friend that Skousen was "one of the greatest spenders of public funds of anyone who ever served in any capacity in Salt Lake City government", and a "master of half truths".[12]

The National Center for Constitutional Studies (NCCS), an organization founded by Skousen, claimed that Skousen had eliminated the sources of illegal activity in the city by 1959.[16] The group asserts that after Skousen's firing, his model police programs were dismantled, and crime increased, on the average, by 22%.[16]

 Skousen continued his involvement in law enforcement issues by working as the editor of the police journal Law and Order for fifteen years. He also served as field director for the American Security Council, but an increasing perception of paranoia resulted in his abrupt termination in 1962.[17] He later returned to BYU as a professor in the Religion Department in 1967, retiring in 1978.

As our planet's tectonic plates shifted over time they left Utah with a magical geological landscape of extreme diversity and beauty. Immigration by Mormons created an extreme religious state controlled by Brigham Young, who tolerated no dissent from Joseph Smiths understanding of God's  will. The United States offer of statehood and Constitutional law was accepted-that set in motion a bitter struggle between compliance to Mormon religious beliefs or the United States Constitution. That struggle continues even as a disillusioned electorate abandons failed political parties for lack of leadership and replace them with a President that is a known sociopath with a warped vision of the nation's and the world's common welfare-as all face a potential nuclear war.   

Utah is also an extreme religious state, dominated by leaders committed to enforcing their religious beliefs-even as they are trapped in a high energy technological world that is immersed in advanced scientific studies that identify the laws of the universe and multi-universes- that require knowledge of quantum mechanics. Utah is a state defined by an extreme devotion to meeting the expectations of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. Prophet  Joseph Smith said: "I told the brethren, that  the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than any other book."  According to the Book of Mormon  the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah.  Graduating Mormon youth spread the Mormon gospel to all corners of the earth seeking converts, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir rapidly became a popular Sunday morning choir known to the world, and the enormous expansion of Mormon Tabernacles across the United States and around the world reflect reflect the rapid advance of the B00k of Mormon. 

The Book of Mormon tells the world, "Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, that Joseph Smith is the revelater and prophet in these last days, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the second coming of the messiah". This church is a remnant of primitive tribes committed to their view of God's law even as they are embedded in foreign governments with differing views of governing-the United States is legally committed to a Constitutional Republic form of government that requires separation of church and state. This same contradiction is driving the conflict and chaos taking place around the planet. A moderate civilization cannot be sustained when primitive differing views of God are intertwined  in national despotic governments that refuse to allow basic human rights for their subjects.

Utah allegiance to the United States Constitution pales in comparison to its support for religious doctrine and partisan politics that violate the principles and intent of a constitutional republic form of government. The United States Constitution is dependent on its citizens' level of enlightenment. The World citizens' level of enlightenment is a function of each citizens tribe, culture, degree of freedom, and access to sources of knowledge gained through the ages. Utah is shaped by a culture that encompasses extreme primitive religious concepts-advanced science, culture, art, and media communities-and a large secular population. This diversity of interests is governed by a partisan political party elected, dominated, and controlled by unelected officials that control the Church of Latter-day Saints-leaving little allegiance to the common welfare of Utah citizens or the United States Constitution. The disregard for Utah citizens is manifested by their contempt for their elected leaders. This contempt for United States leaders was demonstrated by frustrated citizens electing a world class sociopath during this last election. Utah is a microcosm of the extreme behavior manifested by humankind now living on this planet.

The enjoyment of growing old means gently letting go of the past and enabling future generations of humankind. All past civilizations lie hidden or partially standing, in this planet's rubble. Today, there is a growing understanding that our current is struggling to rise above extremist global leaders that impose their  will on those moderate leaders striving to establish a moderate and sustainable civilization.    The wisdom of visionaries that have passed and those still living continue the  struggle to raise the global level of enlightenment of world citizens and future generations. 

Civilization today is seriously flawed and requires all world tribes, nations, and citizens to join together and decide and agree on a path to a moderate and sustainable global civilization.

Homo sapiens behavior is determined by their DNA-environment-family-society/culture-experience-and many other factors.

A moderate and sustainable civilization requires a majority of highly enlightened global citizens and leaders capable of constitutional republic governing while demonstrating moderate values and principles. 

Human advances in nuclear weapons are now in place. Currently, humankind has empowered sociopaths to  launch a global nuclear war. Human allowance of extremist behavior drives a threat that challenges the future of surviving life on this planet; how careless. How must humankind respond to this threat? That's the subject of this article.

 

History, all past civilization rose and collapsed because humans are a flawed species incapable of sustaining a moderate civilization-I see that this current civilization has the same flaws of previous civilizations and has now succumbed due to the lack of respect for life, innate values, environment,and moderate forms of government. The United States abandoned the Constitution and its inherent principles in favor of extreme partisan politics that divide and renders the states and Congress dysfunctional and in a state of extreme anxiety. World tribes, states, nations, and religious institutions, all internally divided, vie for a  moderate civilization dedicated to the common welfare of all world citizens. The bargaining chips are gods-values-morality-corruption, sex, and drugs. The players are a combination of principled and moderate world citizens, statesmen, leaders versus extremely immoderate unprincipled sociopaths capable of destroying  a moderate civilization.

 

I once heard a term that says, "hated people learn to hate in return". Example: Thirteen North American Christen used ships to import black people from abroad, declared them non-human, enslavde them as laborers, and rape and kill them-Christianity in the service of God. The United States Constitution was written by Founding Fathers who were well versed in the sociopath nation of humankind- that's why they took great pains to incorporate checks and balances that would limit the power of extreme sociopaths. Our nation rejected the Constitution in favor of extreme partisan politics that has yielded leaders, with little to no accountability, that fail to serve the common welfare of the nation.

Associated Press-Salt Lake City-High ranking Mormon leaders condemned racism twice during the religions's conference. M. Russell Ballard of a top overning body called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said in a speech Sunday that people need to "embrace God's children compssionately and eliminate any prejudice, including racism, sexism, and nationalism." Ballard hailed the story of black Mormon pioneer Jane Manning James, daughter of a freed slave who helped establish the religions's home in Utah. Fellow Quorum member Quentin L. Cook said, on Saturday,  that anyone claiming superiority based on race, sex, language or economic class is morally wrong."

 

  THE PASSING OF HUMANKIND

Humankind ended early because they failed to realize that their temporary existence depended on global human unification, protection of the environment, and conservation of human and natural resources. The existence of planet earth has been subject to changes in an Infinite Field of Energy.

PRESERVING HUMANKIND-PLUS OR MINUS-pending

A moderate future for humankind is dependent on transitioning from a local self serving view of life to a global sustainable view of life that envisions a moderate sustainable civilization for all humankind so long as this planet allows life to exist. 

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

 

An evolving Infinite Field of Energy, origin unknown, evolved our planet earth, life, and humankind, and then gave us all the natural and human resources necessary to build, through evolution, a moderate sustainable civilization-only, if that evolving Infinite Field of Energy permits. The rising and falling of unknown and known civilizations reflects the futility of flawed Homo sapiens to aspire to a moderate sustaining civilization. The State of today's Civilization, composed of tribes, tribes within nations, including the United States can be defined as flawed-dysfunctional-chaotic-conflicted-sick-and self-destructive-and suicidal. Within each of these conditions, humans simultaneously displayed a brilliant talent for creating masterpieces of all forms of art at every level-during all past civilizations. The human capacity for depravity and enlightenment is both a blessing and a curse-that's why all civilizations have risen and fallen, just as our own civilization is collapsing  now.  Our current civilization is imploding for the same reasons that all past civilizations collapsed.

 

What are the minimum requirements for a moderate sustainable civilization-I'll identify a few in order of priority:

 

First, a majority of world citizens must have a level of enlightenment that allows independence of thought, reason, and judgement.

 

Second, a majority of world citizens that have experienced a full independent life that includes a basic education, experience, and family life.

 

Third, a majority of world citizens dedicated to a vision of a moderate sustainable civilization.

 

Fourth, 

 

What major roadblocks can prevent attaining a moderate sustainable civilization-I'll identify a few-not in order of priority:

 

First,


What Is The Future for Humankind, if Humankind Refuses to Attain a Moderate Sustainable Civilization?

 

First, in this Infinite Field of Energy, humankind is a singularity, one of a kind, and possibly the only one-science knows of no other.

 

Second, all past and present civilizations peaked and collapsed due to the forces of nature or the failure to unify and work together to avoid extreme conflict and chaos.

 

Third, our current civilization is in continuous conflict and chaos due to differences between tribes, within tribes, tribes within nations, and all nations. Total Humankind dysfunction is the result.

 

Third, differences in levels of enlightenment are so extreme at every stage of human society that attaining a moderate sustainable civilization is unrealistic.

 

Forth, advancing levels of enlightenment at every level of human society might just allow a moderate sustainable civilization-so long as the planet can support life.

 

Fifth, lacking a moderate sustaining civilization humankind will continue down the path we are now on: a majority of humans will starve-live in poverty-slavery-and die young from lack of medical care, war, and deprivation. Above the poverty line, the working class will sustain the government and religious institutions,  continue to raise their families, and retire. Moderates will bond to elect government leaders who will in turn yield their power to extremist/sociopath religious, corporate, and political powers to plan a future that enriches all but the moderate working class.

 

 

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

 


Humankind must remember that in this Infinite Energy Field that encompasses all we are aware of, we humans are irrelevant- we will not be missed.
