    This is turning into quite an interesting thread !
    Lots of people have put forward lots of views here, all of which I respect. There are so many problems facing our species, and I don't believe the solution is by any means as easy as we would like to think. I'd like to just give my views as they currently stand, based on my experience of life. I'm always open to change. I'm not saying "this is how it is", I'm saying "this is my current opinion", right or wrong.

    I've always been an anarchist (anarchy literally means "no ruler"), and have shied away from politics and politicians all my life. I've tried on numerous occasions to get out of the rat-race, and have ALWAYS been thrown straight back in !! Back in the early 90's I believed that there was going to be some big spiritual awakening and that humanity would learn to live in harmony. Now I'm not so certain.
    The last 10 years has brought an unbelievable amount of change in my life, I've explored the darkest depths of my being, looked at all those things that we consign to our shadow, been through turmoil, confusion, pain. By living through my experiences, and also through reading a wide variety of literature, I've seen that the human condition now is actually no different from how it's always been, we just like to think we're more evolved. I also believe that the trials and tribulations we suffer are actually the whole point of living ! What HAS changed is that a lot of our problems are being focussed into a global situation, giving us an opportunity to work through the issues and, hopefully, grow.
    We've all heard of the maxim "as above, so below", well I can see how we can take this and apply it to the fields of human health, and I'm talking about spiritual/mental health here too. Dennis has stated that the USA is the most corrupt nation on Earth, and while I don't disagree, I think we need to see a broader picture, I would say thet the Western military/industrial complex is the prime mover here, via the USA admittedly, but previously it was via Britain, (so I'm NOT USA-bashing here folks !) The similarities between the USA (previously Britain) and cancer are striking - in cancer, cells replicate without any consideration for the health of the organism, they multiply in a chaotic fashion, and eventually, they start to invade other organs, until death ensues. If we look at the USA, and particularly its' attitude toward the rest of the world, what do we see ....... ?
    So, in my view, Western style "democracy" does not work.
    For the last 3 years I've been living in China. My initial view of this country was that here is a place where, for the first time in my life, after visiting 27 other countries, I can see a society which works. Bear with me folks, don't misinterpret what I'm saying ! They have a very strong sense of collective identity, people mostly live in harmony with each other, people don't complain all the time, they accept leadership (more on that later) and they understand the concept of working together to achieve something. And what's more, the government actually spend its' money on improving people's lives.
    There are plenty of things wrong here, so I am categorically NOT saying it's a utopia, merely that it's the best I've seen so far, and that there are things we can learn.
    So what have I learned ? Believe me, this has been a tough one for me ! As I said, I've always been an anarchist and this is still a fairly strong part of my nature, but living here has shown me that wise leadership is actually a good thing. On a personal level, we need a degree of self-discipline and spiritual guidance, think "higher-self" if you like. Well, I think the same is true on a collective level. If we look at Western countries, the leadership we have is far from wise ! Changing the situation in the USA, Britain etc. is not going to be possible using the same paradigm that created the problem in the first place. I also beleive that while China is an OK place at the moment, the writing is on the wall and there are many problems ahead.
    I don't know what the answer is, and I'm not ashamed of that; the older I've got, the less I "know". Perhaps the best model by far is the way that indigenous people used to live, with a council of wise elders (if there's anyone here with indigenous blood, please enlighten us).
    Thank you for reading this far, as I said earlier, I'm not claiming to know what the solution is, I'm merely giving an observation, which is as flawed as I am and which may not jive with everyone.
    Hoping we can make progress, for the benefit of ALL Earth's beings, and blessings to you all, Philip

    I get discouraged at how few of my fellow Americans can see past their own daily self interests, or through the blinding emotion of patriotism to gain an understanding of our actual lot in life. More are waking up, but living in a republican state and the home state of Dick Cheney the dark lord himself, it still feels like too few to ultimately effect real change. I'm counting on the global financial collapse to remove these satanic beings from power myself.

    In any case I'm constantly reminded of Socrates views on this. Considered the greatest philosopher in history and the teacher of Plato, Socrates lived in Greece, the birthplace and birthtime of the concept of democracy. He maintained that democracy was a stupid idea and doomed to fail because:

    1. The people chosen to lead as a result of the democratic process are basically winners of a popularity contest. This means they are good at schmoozing but don't necessarily possess any of the required abilities to lead effectively.

    2. The general population (voters) is made up of 20% of people who are too stupid to even be allowed to vote (see any public opinion poll in the US if you doubt this), 60% of people who will do whatever their neighbor tells them (in our case the media) because they just follow the crowd, and 20% of intelligent, informed voters who can make an independent decision based on factual information.

    Let's see, our current crop of presidential hopefuls are Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman... I don't think I really need to go any further.

    edit: The Reset Button has come a long way, from the initial document, to the major revision #2, and now to major revision 3.0

    Revision 3.0 has been released, and anyone just starting in this thread should jump ahead to the post where the latest revision is the topic. Revision 3.0 removed all references to "2012" (which was the US electoral cycle that was the original target date for change - nothing to do with the mysticism/prophesies about 2012.) Revision 3 also breaks The Reset Button document into 2 separate documents:
    • The first is simply called "The Reset Button" and is strictly the plan to remove all of the current elected officials from office (because they are Elite-aligned, Elite selected, Elite-approved, and Elite-supported), and change - transform - the electoral paradigm so that only ordinary citizens without ties to the Financial Elite and Power Elite can even run for office.
    • The second document is called the "Candidate Position Issues", and is a group of topics that all new candidates will have to address - in writing - to run for office. This replaces the "primary" races, and all elections become non-partisan. There will be no way for candidates to hide from the real issues.
    Before you leap forward to the post that starts with the release of The Reset Button revision 3.0, allow me to briefly say what The Reset Button is:
    The Reset Button is a stated goal of US citizens actually creating a "government of the people, by the people, and for the people", and a plan and strategy to actually do it. The Reset Button is a careful analysis of all the ways that the Elite currently control elections (there are 9 ways), and a comprehensive plan to take that power away from the Elite and give it to citizens.

    Like someone publishing how a magician does a trick, The Reset Button exposes all 9 ways the Elite control elections and provides a comprehensive solution. The hard part is done - you don't have to do the analysis or formulate the solution. Even if the solution is never implemented (if too many people are frozen in fear), it is valuable for everyone to finally understand the magician's trick - the 9 ways they stay in control election after election after election - and that there IS a solution. That is worth supporting, and sharing.

    OK, here's a link to send you forward in time, to the release of The Reset Button, revision 3.0: (

    I would like to applaud your efforts, Dennis. It's amazing material which I'll start reading.

    May I make one suggestion --- if you are able to change the background color of your theme, I would suggest a more calming blue color or a more soothing green color. I think color is SO important in a website so here's a few ideas for blue -- hex# 91a8c9, 6b87b2, 639dc2.

    Great job Dennis. 5 Stars. The site looks fantastic. Wanishi you truther. I will visit it often. Much Love. ~Vince~

    PS I like the idea of the blue banner as well,, if you dont mind my input.

    This is Bliss right here:

    The Reset Button provides US citizens one last hope, one last chance - a way to remove the control of the international bankers, before they crush us down to survival mode. With The Reset Button,we have a well-defined goal, a brilliant plan, and a powerful strategy for gaining sovereignty and self-governance - for the first time in our lives.

    Our strength is in numbers. We need millions of US citizens to immediately unite and, as the US Constitution says, "...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances", using the brilliant plan and powerful strategy of The Reset Button to achieve our goal: freeing ourselves from the international bankers control, and finally attaining a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We can, we must, and we will succeed.

    It was pointed out to me when I released the Reset Button 1.x document last spring that there was no way to gauge the interest level, no way to know how many people resonated with it. Like the video that we have seen of the One Guy dancing outdoord, finally attracting one more enthusiastic person, then a snowball effect. So, PLEASE sign the document if you can support fair elections. That's all you have to support - fair elections - and you can support with your signature (which will attract others to do the same.)



    The original Reset Button was also more of a one-two punch, where all the items in Phase II were expected to take place as well as Phase I. That was a mistake on several levels. One, it was overwhelming. and two, as soon as someone found something to disagree with in Phase II, they felt they could not support any of it. Finally, the reality is that we all need to trust that simply having all of the bought-and-paid-for handmaidens of the Financial Elite out, and ordinary citizens in, that alone is a huge accomplishment and would create a wave of positive change that may not even be envisioned in Phase II essays.

    I agree about the color scheme. I thought about it a lot. Blue is "taken" - it is the color of the flag flown by Democratic Party, just as Republicans fly red. "Red states, blue states"... impossible not to associate "Democrat" if blue is used.

    A real "reset button" on a machine would probably be red.

    But yeah, I agree with your aesthetic but felt compelled NOT to use the colors already associated with the 2-parties in the USA.

    Thanks!

    Dennis,

    I have always contended that public service representative government, at least at the highest positions, should be filled by those with very substantial experience in real life. The minimum age requirement for the presidency helps that, but that was established when life expectancy was much shorter. I would seriously like to have minimum age requirements of at least 50 for all federal offices, perhaps the same for state, since I believe that is where the new heavy lifting will occur after the shakeout. Community and county positions should be at least 45.

    In addition to having greater knowledge and experience of solving problems, older people have much less to prove, fewer to impress and thus, cannot be bought.

    I would sincerely appreciate your consideration of adding the minimum age requirements, at least for our current 3D understanding and anticipated changes: I believe—after disclosure and reeducation from our ET/ED friends—our perspectives may change substantially about all things on all fronts. But, your proposed framework in the immediate interim is a great start.

    I would sincerely appreciate your consideration of adding the minimum age requirements...
    EG, As you may have noticed with the soveriegnty movements, the individual States in the United States want power to make as many determinations as possible. I strongly disagree with the State (maybe North Dakota?) that dropped the age requirement for a Senator can't remember if it was US Senator or state senator), down to 18!

    I think it's nuts. I have met some bright 18 year olds, but, as you say, they have no life experience.


    Whatever gets proposed has to be (at first), something MOST people can agree upon. Most people can agree on fair elections and getting money out of elections (and it just so happens to also be the ONLY pathway to get people in power that are not beholden to the Financial Elite.)

    I am tracking every suggestion for modifications to use as updates for Phase II topics, and will add a higher age minimum, as a recommendation. However, it does require yet another amendment, and if we recommend too many amendment changes to the US Constitution, we lose the support of those that want to simply follow the Constitution (for once.)

    ================================

    OK, the city was being saved as the last name, in the database. One of those things I had working correctly, tested, and then made a change in the code (added some security), and did not test it again properly.

    Fixed!

    Will have to email the few whose last names are incorrect...

    Hi Dennis..

    I read the brief synopsis.

    Now correct me if I am wrong, didn't a part of the human race already tried that out at one point in history?
    And i can't recall how many millions were murdered over that theory of a perfect society.

    I do feel you have everyone's best interest in your heart, but who can say, they didn't have it when they came up with the idea?
    Please don't take this as a personal attack, search your heart and contemplate this, (that's all folks)

    P.s "we the bodies will finally achieve a government of the bodies, by the bodies, and for the bodies" This is what I read when I see it in this context.
    You are not your body, wake up the peace is within you.

    ..8..

    Excellent effort, Dennis!


    One suggestion: Cut down your paragraphs to 3-4 lines at the most. The Internet standard is now to keep paragraphs short, very short, like 1 to 3 lines at the most, no matter how wide/narrow the text field is. This aspect is one of the most vital aspects that can determine the success/failure of a site.

    Thank you very much for this effort, good job.

    One thing jumps out at me. I know financial 'Elite' is the common term, but it's so complimentary, what could be a substitute?
    In Webster, it's not until the 4th definition that kind of explains this use of the phrase. I assume the first 3 definitely are not what you think of them:
    The Webster Definition of ELITE:
    1a the choice part
    1b the best of a class
    1c the socially superior part of society
    1d group of persons who by virtue of position or education exercise much power or influence <members of the ruling elite>

    I also think the 'who' being referred to should be a bit more defined. Need some help here picking the words and trying to keep it unwordy...."current financial controllers" or "current officeholders".... or ?
