After the Fall

May 17, 2011

It happened, as many predicted.  The economy and the U.S. dollar collapsed, cities encountered major civil unrest.  Many people have perished, food is scarce and what there is, is unaffordable.   Our lives have changed forever, but it’s time to rebuild our great nation to bring peace and prosperity back into our lives.  We must make freedom and liberty our way of life and eliminate government force that we endured over the last two centuries.  Federal and State governments, as we knew them are gone.  They became the most hated people on earth, those who weren’t killed, fled into obscurity.  It’s now up to a very small number of people to take the lead and form a new system of governance that will be totally different than what we had.  It will no longer be a government, but volunteers selected by the people to manage the needs of the people.

Let’s begin by developing the new guidelines by which the new National Management Selections will work under.  This will be written in the new U.S Constitution.  There will be 50 members (one from each state)  selected for the new National Security Management Committee.  They will be responsible for managing the budget and actions of our Armed Forces.  The NSMC will convene once a year to establish a budget and vote to approve it.  They will be paid one weeks regular wages plus travel, lodging and subsistence.  This payment will be made from the individual States NMS payment fund.  The members will serve one term of four years.  That will end their eligibility for national service.

There will then be 50 members (one from each state) for the new National Foreign Affairs Committee (NFAC).  These members will convene on an as needed basis to vote on treaties and trade agreements with other nations.  They will be paid regular wages plus travel , lodging and subsistence for each day they convene through the States NMS fund.  These members will serve one term of six years.  That will end their national service eligibility.

There will then be 1 member selected from a pool of 50 (one from each state) to act as National Management Spokesperson.  The NMS will negotiate treaties and trade agreements, direct our military in the defense of the nation when called upon.  The NMS will speak to the people twice per year.  These speeches will cover all treaties and trade agreements that will be voted on by the NFAC.  He will also report the status and cost of the military budget and any other pertinent issues that may arise.  He will hold no authority over the  National Management Committees.  The NMS will serve a term of two years, which will end his eligibility for national service.

There you have it.  A very limited form of government based on volunteerism.  While there are smaller details to work out as far as how the volunteers are selected, that will be accomplished by the new State Management Selections, which will be covered in a future article.  The National Management Selections will have no power to pass or enforce laws.  In the event of  an attack or potential attack by a foreign enemy, The National Security Management Committee will convene at a secret location to decide on the use of the National Armed Forces.  They will inform the National Management Spokesperson, who will attempt to speak with the foreign enemy to reach a peace accord.  The NMS will then speak to the people.  If the use of the National Armed Forces is necessary, the NMS will direct their actions.   The National Armed Forces can only be activated for defensive purposes only.

The people of the United States will have all unalienable rights protected.  These rights include the right to free speech, free press, freedom to assemble, freedom of religious choice, and the  freedom to keep and bear arms in any manner a person chooses, both in private and in public.  The right to Habeas Corpus and the right to a trial by jury.  The right to travel freely and own property free of taxes.  The right to be secure from unreasonable search and seizure of both person and property.  No laws shall be passed infringing on the rights of the people.  All laws passed must be of moral discipline,  murder, rape, assault, theft or any action by one person that negatively affects the liberty and freedom of another person or persons.  All laws will be passed and enforced at the state and local levels.

We must be prepared for after the fall.  With a solid plan ready to protect the freedom of America’s citizens, one that is easy to understand by all, is imperative.  I we are not ready, we will have no choice between the angel or the beast.   While this is just a draft of what a new form of governance could look like to replace our failed governments, it is a beginning.  It is a plan based on liberty and freedom, a plan to eliminate corruption of those who speak for the people.  But there is much work and discussion to be had in perfecting it.  We must be ready to defend liberty and freedom, after the fall.

Live Free!

    Nice article G, but for what I see right now, it’s only a dream at this time. It will take a lot of work to get it to that point where there is very limited government. There’s nothing more I’d like to see than to have as little as possible in the matter of government, nobody to dictate to us any anything. Like the ending to your articles, LIVE FREE.

      Thanks Judy, it pays to look ahead. 🙂

        Believe me, I do look ahead & hope with everything I’ve got, that it will come to that too. I guess it’s like the old saying, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. I sure do hope I’ll see it in my life time, but then, I’ll probably be to old to care anymore by then, who knows, but we have to think about our future generations too, & what it will be like when they get older.

        We have to get back to the constitution, get back to morals & values before it’s too late, if it’s not already. Hope not anyway.

        • May 17, 2011 4:41 pm


          I too hope to see the start of a new Republic – correcting the errors that have crept in over the last two hundred plus years.

          But the only way I see us “going back” is by starting over. 🙂 The question is when will we have the courage and strength of purpose to do just that?

            Plainly, I guess what I mean by getting back to the constitution, is how the way THEY’RE trying to change it to suit them. Is the way our country is being run now, they way it was meant to be, that government takes over aspect of your life? Good Lord, I hope not.

            Yes, I agree, we need to start over, but who, where, how & when? I’m sickened how this country has gone to hell in a hand basket, became the laughing stock anymore. O stands with countries that hate us, but ignores those who we should stand with, like Israel. Giving aid to other countries instead of helping those right here in this country. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for helping out, but when does it stop? We’re so far in debt, how long will it take to get out of this mess? Who knows.

    Much of our current Constitution tried to define the Republic, but failed in that wiggle room was left for following generations to alter the document, directly and indirectly.

    Any future “Constitution” must rigidly set the boundaries within which government must exist. No wiggle room allowed.

    • May 23, 2011 3:22 pm

      So true about the “wiggle room”. The founders ought to have merely formed a Union of the several states, provided for the common defense (perhaps), declared that Govern owns NO rights to pick and choose which to “grant” to the people, and that relinquished up-front any right to Force the citizens. Then they should have gone home and slept it off, but NOPE – they wrote many words, all of which could be spun, so here we are, America, about to go under the knife.

      Never trust anyone else to control “human nature”, which is always what “Govern” does, because that’s what Govern means. There is a simple set of inviolate principles which apply to everything and every person.

      • May 23, 2011 4:34 pm

        What does a voluntary association do? Does it not set forth principles to live by (inviolate)? Is that not “govern”ing?

        Do you not “control” human nature through governing by setting what beliefs/discussion/debate will be allowed on your site?

        ADDED: I guess what I am saying is that governing is almost as natural for us as breathing.

        • May 23, 2011 5:46 pm

          After many centuries of governments failing, it seems not to be so “natural”.

          Stating principle does not equate to govern, most certainly spells the standards. In pure, simple form, it does not govern at all, but lays the foundation for non-intrusive behavior. Those who intrude do so at great risk. Every man is entitled to defend his circle, but to go beyond that puts him at the same great risk.

            Dean, there is so much to discuss about the future. Plainly wrote an article on your ideals that will be published very soon. To make things clear, I am not against your ideals, I think they are what a great society should be. I hope you keep posting here and selling your ideals, I find them intriguing and look forward to reading your comments in the future. Debate is a great way to resolve problem, but even those resolutions may have problems that need to be worked out and discussed.

          • May 23, 2011 5:53 pm

            Yes sir it does. This is a fallacy of your argument. You expect all to behave as you believe they should, never considering the alternatives.

            Ah, but why say that here. I’ve pointed out the weakness of your beliefs in a separate article.

  3. May 17, 2011 5:01 pm


    I understand you concern and share your sadness at what we’ve become. I blame both sides in this battle – neither has the principle or moral character to move us to the intentions of the Founders (which never meant – IMHO – for the federal government to take over our lives). It has gone on too long now and we’ve got to understand and acknowledge that we’ve “lost.”

    Many in our country (I mean the left) believe we are going forward to a better nation – but then they do not value freedom and liberty. Their ideas of it are as coming from the government, not as an inalienable right from the Creator. They can only gain their goals through government intrusion and control over our lives. They’re afraid of individual freedom and liberty since it gives individuals CHOICE in their life. liberty and pursuit of happiness.

    Jefferson gave us the roadmap to deal with the tyranny and oppression of government. My question is what must happen here before people are willing to follow his advice on this?

      I honestly think it’s happening now, Look what’s happening, being dictated to on how to raise & feed our kids, cars to drive, forcing us to get health insurance whether or not you want it or need it, what kind of light bulbs to buy, what we should & shouldn’t eat, have to get frisked at air ports, & rain stations, the list goes on & on, & I hope sooner or later, hopefully sooner the people will wake up from the long, long comas & see what’s going on around them & the destruction that’s happening in this country before it’s too late.

      I don’t/can’t believe anybody anymore when they say they only have the best for America & her people. If they do, then they have a funny way of showing it. Jobs were to be created, where are they? People still losing their homes, paying a fortune for gas & groceries, paying more & getting less, sending jobs to Chins instead of keeping them here, just because it’s cheaper labor, & getting worse quality for things. The list goes on & on. I get to the point where I just want to say F*** it, but then I know we just can’t give up either. Yes, it saddens me to see how & where this country & the people have gone, & I pray everyday that it will get better.

    Looks like some heavy work has gone into this potential Constitution as well as management of a nation free of Big Brother government. I’ll enjoy working with you at either my website,, or Dean Striker’s at

    We are at Morality101 zeroing in on happenings prior to the collapse, and you are so very welcome to register there, post there, comment there.

      G-Man actually created a “draft” of this same on No-Ruler but never came back to publish it. Would be useful to compare this with pure Voluntary.

        On my way to do just that. I wanted to see what flow came about. I also have this set up on another site that averages 200 comments a day, so that should be interesting.

        • May 22, 2011 8:40 pm

          Will be glad to see that your post up and running.

          Getting the comments rolling is how things get done, especially when seeking new objectives and wanting to fill in the blanks!

          I’m in the process of trying to transition to CMS to ease the process, finding it’s gonna take lots of time to learn, but much more user-friendly. We’ll see how it goes

            Already done. I will say that publishing on another persons blog, without really knowing the person is alittle unsettling. While I have that arrangement with a friend, it did come with time, as I would expect anyone to do. I’m also waiting for this article to post on another blog, as I said. Once it does, I’ll invite you over, you should enjoy the comments, and you should engage with these folks, good people.

    Just curious why you think you need International Treaties.

    A nation of free people should be able to trade with others in the world according to whatever terms they can make with their trading partners.

      You have a great point! I have this article set up for USW to put up, the discussion would be better. My idea has some flaws for sure, but those can be remedied. I also have a similar article for the states, and then one on what a new constitution may look like under these ideas, as well as what comes the hopeful discussion. An lastly, I have an article which will be written on how to shut down the Feds, peacefully, and within the law.

    • May 23, 2011 11:14 am

      Unfortunately, treaties are much more than just about free trade. They are about boundaries of both land and sea, about avoiding wars and much more. As long as mankind has Nations, there will always be some, or many, who just cannot fathom leaving well enough alone. LOL.

      So “the people” form governments to “control” such things, but always find the governments turn to controlling the people, and eventually fail. The people have a difficult time grasping that Voluntary is better than Force.

      • gmanfortruth permalink*
        May 23, 2011 12:06 pm

        Dean, As you refer to Voluntary, I can’t help seeing this as a form of peaceful anarchism. I know some cool folks who think the very same way, but they waive the black flag and use the term Anarchist to describe themselves. I would like to see this in action, as a better way to see if it can work. Voluntary/anarchism is not a bad way to live, will it ever happen? Only time will tell.

        • May 23, 2011 12:28 pm

          I think what Dean proposes IS a peaceful anarchy. Will it ever be achieved? One will never know until one tries it. I know I am ready for one – but I don’t believe most American citizens are. I believe they honestly do not believe that man can police himself, that man is basically good, that regular people can make it in life without government making the big decisions for them. And when I look at some people’s logic, I can readily understand the concern. Interesting that animals can make it in nature without an elected or tyrranical ruler, but humans think they cannot.

          • gmanfortruth permalink*
            May 23, 2011 12:31 pm

            I happen to agree with you, and have also heard the rediculous arguments favoring government. As I have said often, you can medicate the mentally ill, but you can’t fix stupid 🙂

  6. May 23, 2011 1:23 pm


    What Dean Striker proposes is just that – peaceful anarchy. People wherein would be free from force or compulsion to act against their peaceful nature. It is an very enticing dream to hope to achieve.

    But, the component uncounted upon by Mr. Striker is human behavior. Humans have negative traits as well as positive ones. It is because of this that segments of the human race will act in their own interests, on their own desires, regardless of the impact that has on others. They have no qualms about compelling or forcing others to align to their thinking, ergo humans create the artificial entities called governments to – in their desires – only allow the “best” of human traits to interact together in their society. So it has been throughout the course of societies.

    Even in a voluntary association there will be “codes” of acceptable behavior and when one is acting outside of that behavior there will be some consequence – whether personally delivered against the offender by the victim, or impersonally by the association. Any “rules” of any kind enforced by a group is a government by its basic nature.

    So, as I have stated to Mr. Striker, human behavior will doom us to living under some form of government. It is best then, in this reality, to keep that government very small and tightly controlled so it can not be expanded upon to steal the basic rights of freedom and liberty.

    Mr. Striker’s failure to acknowledge such truths of human behaviors blinds him to the reality of what would be reasonable to accomplish for the best chance to live in societies where your rights are maximized.

    Unfortunately he handles anyone pointing out this basic truth to him as being in opposition to his views and kindly removes that individual from his “sight.” As the movie line goes he just “can’t handle the truth.” He exercises his authoritarian powers (“government”) and bans participation by the offender. He wishes no dissent or debate contrary to his dream.

    So much for freedom and liberty.
