The unanimous Declaration of the united PEOPLE of America, When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political brands which have disconnected them from one another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the individual and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of humankind requires that they should declare the causes which propel them to unite.   

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people 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, respect is instituted among people. That whenever any personal perception becomes destructive of these ends, it is the responsibility of the people to either abolish their ego and broaden perspective, or to communicate candidly, casting aside the need for self-righteousness, as to establish a mutual respect. Laying a foundation on these principles and organizing our powers to support unity will ensure Safety and Happiness and provide infrastructure to solve our country’s complex problems.

Mutual respect, indeed, will confirm that people should not be divided for light and transient differences or disagreements; and accordingly, all human experience has shown that humankind shares more in commonalities than differences. 

As a people made up of 328,000,000 million individuals of all shapes, sizes and colors, from all walks of life, inherent differences in points of view do exist. In the year 2020, we face very real problems and have strong disagreements about how to solve them and often what the actual problem is, but if we are to find a solution, It will require discussion where previously, there has only been debate. 

And let the record show, we humbly suggest redirecting our collective communication from our disparities to the following points.

  • OUR HISTORY OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING BROUGHT ABOUT THE ENSLAVEMENT OF PEOPLE WITH COLORED SKIN AND HAS SINCED EVOLVED INTO THE TRANSPORT OF HUMANS FOR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION.
  • OUR TRADITION OF CONQUEST INSTEAD OF COLLABORATION  HAS FORCIBLY DISPLACED INDIGENOUS PEOPLE FROM THEIR NATIVE LAND AND STRIPPED EARTH OF ITS NATURAL RESOURCES. 
  • THE MISMANAGEMENT OF OUR RESOURCES HAS DEGRADED THE QUALITY OF GOODS IN OUR COUNTRY SO MUCH SO THAT MOST ITEMS ARE DESIGNED TO BE DISPOSED OF, ONLY AFTER A SINGLE USE.
  • OUR IDENTITY AS CONSUMERS HAS CREATED AN INSATIABLE DEMAND FOR FOOD SUPPLY GIVING RISE TO FACTORY FARMING AT THE EXPENSE OF BOTH ANIMALS,  AND PUBLIC HEALTH; OUR OBESITY EPIDEMIC CONTINUES WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CHILDREN STARVE WITHIN OUR BORDERS.
  • OUR COMMITMENT TO PROFIT INSTEAD OF PEOPLE HAS CREATED FOR-PROFIT PRISONS AND AN ECONOMY DESIGNED ONLY TO EXTRACT FROM THE HUMANS UPON WHICH IT RELIES, WITHOUT THE INTENTION TO RESTORE. 
  • OUR INVESTMENT INTO POLICE FORCE WITHOUT EQUAL INVESTMENT INTO COMMUNITY HAS OVER WORKED OUR OFFICERS AND LEFT THEM UNACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
  • OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS HAS BEEN REPEATEDLY ABUSED WITH MASS PUBLIC MURDERS AND SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, REVEALING THE STATE OF BOTH  MENTAL HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE IN OUR COUNTRY.
  • THE FINANCIALLY INCENTIVIZED DESIGN OF OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM WHERE DOCTORS PROFIT PER PRESCRIPTION, HAS MADE A NORMALITY OF COMORBIDITY, MEDICAL BANKRUPTCY, AND LEFT A GENERATION OF YOUTH SUFFERING FROM PRESCRIPTION DRUG ADDICTION. 
  • OUR ENORMOUS MILITARY IS EITHER ILL EQUIPPED FOR OR UNCONCERNED WITH THE HEALING OF THE GENERATIONS OF VETERANS IT PRODUCES.
  • OUR DUOPOLY POLITICAL SYSTEM HAS GIVEN VOICE TO VIOLENT EXTREMES AND POLICY DEVELOPMENT HAS BECOME A COMPETITION TO BE WON INSTEAD OF A DUTIFUL SERVICE TO BE PERFORMED.  A COMPETITION RECKLESSLY AMPLIFIED BY OUR NEWS MEDIA AND EXPLOITED BY THE MANIPULATIVE DESIGN OF OR SOCIAL MEDIA EVOKING THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE TRAITS OF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE; FOSTERING HATE,TRIBALISM, DISTRUST, VANITY AND FEAR. THE EFFECTS OF OUR  ALGORITHMIC ADVERTISING BUSINESS MODEL HAS HAD SEVERE UNFORESEEN CONSEQUENCES AND THREATENS THE FABRIC OF DEMOCRACY ITSELF.
     

The history of the present people of the United States of America has left us scarred and divided. These Conflicts affect all people, both present and yet to come, of all identities, conditions, and beliefs. This is the current situation of these People of the United States, and this is the necessity: to declare our Respect to all persons we know, will meet, and may never meet, so that we may move past our selves and into the community of ideas where the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of all People are ensured. 

WE SING OUR ANTHEM OF VICTORY BY WAR WITH ROCKETS AND BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR BUT NEGLECT TO CELEBRATE THE UNION AND PEACE BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM. A People who celebrate only their independence and never their Unity live in constant contradiction to the very name and ideals set forth as the United States of America. As people of a united nation it is our right, it is our duty, to mend this divisiveness. We must, therefore, denounce our Separation and hold ourselves, as we hold the rest of Humankind, United, as one people under God, with Liberty and Justice for All. 

Therefore, we, the United People of America, amidst the COVID-19 global pandemic, economic shutdown, political and civil unrest, natural disasters, and all points herein this document aforementioned, proclaim to the Supreme Power and Intelligence of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People throughout this country, solemnly publish and declare, that these People are, and of Right, ought to be United; that they are beyond any form of division by Idea, and that all political connection between them and their Identity, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as a Union of Independent People, they have full Power to Collaborate, Communicate and Create a country that lives up to its inspiring ideals as the land of opportunity, unity, freedom, prosperity and creativity, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent People may of right do. Any society facing a problem must realize that: all societies are made up of its individuals, and to solve problems, individuals must consider themselves as both the solution and the problem. Thus, we acknowledge our problems are products of both nature and nurture, privilege and circumstance, individual and collective decisions, and in support of this Declaration, We admit that the source of and solution to our problems lies in the quality of our communication. 

Let us not fall prey to the petulant behavior of mockery and the foolishness of civil war in an attempt to solve our problems. Let us be the example for generations of people to come and may our government learn from our example.
