The United States Provisional Government commemorates the 4th of July, 2021, by paying tribute to the Founding Fathers who declared independence from the British Empire, signing the American Declaration of Independence on this day in 1776.
“We honor the 4th of July, not with fireworks and hotdogs, or other signifiers of a degraded and decadent consumer culture, one that renders us slaves, not freemen, through the passive attitude it encourages, but rather we honor this day by reviving the original spirit of that declaration in 1776.
We hereby declare that the United States, and the citizens of our precious Earth, are from today forward, independent from the dark forces of techno-tyranny, bio-fascism, and private equity totalitarian rule that have created an invisible empire whose dark armies hide behind news reports of “COVID19 outbreaks,” “building collapses,” “domestic terrorism,” and other sophisticated cloaks meant to divide and to confuse our citizens.
God give us the wisdom that will allow us to respond to the ruthless war on our minds, on our bodies, on our local economies, and on our environment, a war waged by faceless forces behind the curtains, by puppet masters who skillfully use conservative or progressive rhetoric as they see fit.
If we learned anything from the tales of Noah, Abraham, and Moses about how to lead our people out of overwhelming danger, out of slavery and destruction, we have learned that evil is not like the monsters in horror movies. You cannot spot evil if you look for fangs and horns. No! Evil is by its nature transparent, constantly shifting form, and overwhelmingly seductive to the spiritually blind.
We declare our independence from this global evil empire of technology and consumption, of private equity and military contractors, of pornography, GMOs and processed foods, that is determined to seize control of our minds, and of our bodies, by any means possible.
Our founding fathers declared,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men 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, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
We will provide precisely the “new guards” for the future security of our children, and our grandchildren. We do so through the formal establishment of a provisional government of the United States to oversee the rebuilding of the Republic and the rebuilding of a constitutional democracy in our beloved nation.
We follow in the footsteps of the leader of the anti-slavery movement Frederick Douglass as we fight this new war against global slavery.
“This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
Douglass, born a slave, had the creativity and the mindfulness to avoid throwing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution in the trash just because some of its signers, and authors, practiced slavery.
Douglass argued, correctly, that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, avoid mentioning slavery and hold up a higher ideal than its signers were capable of. He showed tremendous respect for the writings of Thomas Jefferson on freedom and liberty, because Frederick Douglass, an as adult, was entirely capable of separating the weaknesses of Jefferson the man from the insights of Jefferson the intellectual.
Our declaration of independence draws inspiration from both that original Declaration of Independence of 1776, and from the declarations of independence for slaves made in various forms between John Brown’s Provisional Constitution of May 10, 1858 and the passing of the 13th Amendment on January 31, 1865.
Our revolutionary war today carries on the best of those traditions as we strive to make America great for the first time.”
