Honor Treaties

Honor Treaties

American Indian / Native American nations were once treated as being the Sovereign nations that they truly are. Hundreds of treaties were established with these First Nations, only to be dishonored by Congress through repeated legislative attacks. In 1871, the Indian Appropriations Act dealt a death-blow to recognition of the Tribal Nations as being independent. Later, the Snyder Act made it “clear” that American Indians are U.S. Citizens. The treatment of Natives, by the U.S. Government, has been damaging at best, with the original inhabitants alternately being treated as “wards of the state” or as separate entities for which the federal government felt no obligation. In other words, the approach has been haphazard, unfair and always in favor of the U.S. government behaving irresponsibly and disrespectfully. There is no independent, accountable legal entity to hold the government accountable and to protect First Nations people. This type of problem is also international.

Safeguard the Environment

Protecting and preserving the natural environment is a top priority. Living sustainably means leaving more natural beauty for future generations to enjoy.
Internationally, plants and animals are disappearing due to:
 
  • Habitat loss from over-development
  • Ecosystem disruption by pollution, war and climate instability
  • Predation for bush-meat, “aphrodisiac” horns and other animal-part trade, and pet trade
  • Other stressors brought on by humans not being cognizant or concerned over the consequences of their actions and choices
This is an especially critical time for humanity to be upright and bold in our approach to helping maintain species diversity and health. Living more sustainably is important for us and all-our-relations.

Economy and Jobs

We need a new “hybrid” economy here in the United States of America and around the world in countries such as Greece and the United Kingdom. The new economy would be comprised of two levels of monetary systems (hence “hybrid” as in cars powered by both gasoline and electricity).
At the most basic level or tier, one would find the following in use: local scrip or currency systems, trade, barter, and a truly international “coin” having the same value, internationally, based upon purchasing power parity intended to internationally raise the basic standard of living to at least an equal subsistence level.
There would be strict local rules (following an international code) guarding against speculation and risky investment of this global currency. Its function and purpose would first and foremost be to ensure that basic needs of water, food, energy and shelter are met in a manner promoting sustainable design and living, with local perspectives and control being paramount.
