S2 E12 The Freedom Contract – Part 1 on Oppression
Thank you for joining us to celebrate the virtues of self-rule and debate the state of our republic. Welcome to the Citizens Prerogative Podcast.
Discussion topics in this episode:
- A recap on the car metaphor because we plan to keep using it in the discussion.
- This is a three-part series discussing freedom using a different perspective, as you would expect us to. How empowered to pursue happiness would we be, without having to suffer from oppression, poverty, and ignorance?
- The current state of the contract and the serious breaches by those not upholding their end of the bargain. Inequities, advantages, and entitlements, oh my!
- Playing by whose rules? Some get to stand their ground while others are run down.
- Michael V. Piscitelli
- Raymond Wong Jr.
- The planks of the Freedom Contract Platform, “In Pursuit of Happiness” (our draft working name for it). The three parts of this series align to the following:
- Freedom from oppression including equal justice for all, digital ownership rights, state surveillance, and other violence.
- Freedom from poverty including a donut style economic model with a floor to stand on and a ceiling that protects the earth from greed and excess.
- Freedom from ignorance including the development of skills for lifelong learning and adaptability, to collaborate among different groups of people and achieve a common goal, and the value of civic society and science for the sake of knowledge.
- Lastly, a shout out to the “Behind the Bastards” podcast, they do their research and have fun serving it up! This episode kicks off a multi-part on the lesser-known history of the police: Behind the Police: Slavery, Mass Murder and the Birth of American Law Enforcement.
