Hologram of Liberty
The Constitution's Shocking Alliance with Big Government
by
Kenneth W. Royce (a.k.a. Boston T. Party)
 

Reader praise for Hologram of Liberty
Love it!
-- R.C., California

I met Mr. Royce at an expo a month ago where I purchased Hologram of Liberty. I was amazed and pleased with his work. I enjoyed it very much.
L.G.E., Upland, California

I'm halfway through Hologram. Outstanding! Am enclosing payment for 10 more copies.
-- R.W.T., Charlotte, North Carolina

Hologram of Liberty strikes me as a very good, and too rare, criticism of that egregiously flawed document known as the U.S. Consitution. And...last year...[author Kenneth Royce] delivered a superb talk on the same subject.
-- Bob Kephart, Florida

I finished Hologram of Liberty...and could not put it down once I started reading. I have many people that I will share this with in different parts of the country. This should be required reading for everyone in America. Enclosed is payment for 40 copies.
-- D.C., Spokane, Washington

Your Hologram of Liberty is eye opening, sir! I'm up to page 5/17 of the book. It's great! You are wonderful!
-- R.P., Edison, N.J.

Civic Belief #1
The Congress was given few specific powers. All else was left to the States and to the people under the 10th Amendment. Ample checks and balances protect the Republic from federal tyranny.

Civic Belief #2
The Federal Government has become so powerful only because despotic officials have overstepped their strict, constitutional bounds.

If #1 is true, then how did #2 happen?
The Constitution has either authorized such a government as we have had,
or has been powerless to prevent it.
-- Lysander Spooner; No Treason (1870)

Think about that. By either the Constitution's purposeful design or by its unintentional weakness, we suffer under a federal colossus which takes a third of our lives and regulates everything from alfalfa to xylophones. This is Freedom?

So, why aren't Americans free?
Perhaps we weren't really meant to be!

hol· o· gram (häl' e gram) n. [< Gr. holos, whole + gramma, writing] 2. a document falsely representing itself as an accurate metaphor
lib· er· ty (lib'er tee) n. [< L. liber, free] 1. freedom from slavery

           Hologram of Liberty--The Constitution's Shocking Alliance With Big Government--is a cold splash of water on our civic mythology. Hologram's main contention is that the 1787 Convention, its Constitution and Federal Government was the most brilliant and subtle coup d'etat in political history. While the majority of Americans then were Jeffersonian in nature, a few Hamiltonian Federalists eradicated our Swiss-style Confederation and replaced it with a latent leviathan. The Federal Government was given several escape keys to the putative handcuffing by the Constitution. Using the "necessary and proper" and "general welfare" clauses in conjunction with congressional powers under treaty, interstate commerce, and emergency, the "Founding Lawyers" of 1787 purposely designed a constitutional infrastructure guaranteed to facilitate a future federal colossus. While such a massive government was impossible to erect in the freedom-conscious 1780's, the "virus" of tyranny was cunningly hidden within the Constitution to foment the eventual federal behemoth we are burdened with today. The feds take in a third of economic activity and regulate everything from the price of corn to the size of chimneys and it's all constitutional! " Oh, it's only 'constitutional' because autocratic Supreme Court Justices say it is!," some would reply.
         Yes, but the Framers allowed the Supreme Court, without any check or balance, to approve of federal encroachment on the States and on the people. There is no constitutional avenue for overturning a despotic Supreme Court ruling--and it was designed that way. The feds are allowed to "monitor" themselves, like students grading their own tests. Had the Framers wanted to really check the Supreme Court, they'd have at least created an appellate court (activated by petition) staffed by justices from the States. Had the Framers wanted to really hamstring Congress and the President, they would have given the people a "no-confidence" device to remove traitorous officials in midterm. Had they wanted to, the Framers could have (as did the Swiss) easily confined the Federal Government--but they didn't want to. In their opinion, a strong central government--independent of real popular approval--was best for America. The Framers left the federal fleas in control of their own flea powder, and that's why we have such an unchallengeable government today.
           Most conservatives and libertarians believe that the Constitution and its Framers were Jeffersonian and laissez-faire. They were not, and they never claimed to be. This Jeffersonian gloss is echoic of two things: 1) What the Constitution was sold as to the people through The Federalist, and 2) How the Constitution, according to Jefferson, should have been interpreted under strict constructionism. Add the Red, White, and Blue, July 4th, the Founding Fathers and George Washington and you've got a civic religion with its unique parchment worship. There are but three ways to view anything, including the Constitution:

               1) The way you see it.
               2) The way you would like it to be.
               3) The way it really is.

Friends of freedom have gazed dreamily at the Constitution for two centuries, fusing #1 with #2 to create a false #3. We need to snap out of our parchment worship and coldly study the predicament of Liberty--before it's too late. Liberty-loving folks need to quickly understand that freedom is not well-served by the current Constitution. Neither is tyranny. It is Royce's firm opinion that the Constitution will be radically amended, if not abolished altogether, by "us" or "them" within 10 years. Royce proves that the States and the people were politically "checkmated" at ratification, and discusses his three peaceful solutions prior the imminent insurrection now brewing. The goal of Hologram of Liberty is to spark an active synthesis of Libertarians, Patriots, and Conservatives to prevent a 21st century Dark Age in America.
         There hasn't been an innovative theory about the Constitution in 84 years, since Charles Beard's An Economic Interpretation. We are long overdue for a paradigm shift to political reality. It's time to complete the story with Hologram of Liberty, the Jeffersonian/anti-federalist epilogue. Our window of opportunity for reestablishing freedom is quickly running out and we simply don't have time for comforting old fantasies. Hologram of Liberty is the freshest research on the Constitution since 1913.

Note to myself:
 
"The only legitimate use of [government] power is ... to prohibit and punish such acts as murder, assault, robbery, rape, kidnapping, and fraud. ... However, insofar as the government steps beyond this narrowly circumscribed, strictly delimited domain of legitimate activity, it acts as a destroyer in the same manner as private criminals."
 
The above is quoted from an article by Dr. George Reisman. It restarted me thinking about the possibility of defining the ENTIRE proper role for a new government, EVERYTHING that is needed for a free society, including the laws and prohibiting the making of new laws.
 
One of the ways that our government got out of control was granting it the ability to create laws. But once the laws for violent acts have been defined, politicians no longer have any real job left, and so, rather than disband, they expand their law making powers into areas where laws are not needed.
 
With the experience of the last 225 years in this country, it should NOT be necessary to make any additional laws regarding such acts as murder, assault, robbery, rape, kidnapping, and fraud. Nor should it be necessary to leave this responsibility up to state and county level governments. A constitution for a new government should INCLUDE the body of proper laws and should restrict the government to enforcing those laws and none other. It should be possible for an individual to know everything about all the laws, and they should be unchanging and unchangeable.

Thinking more about my comments in the previous note has led me to the conclusion that the Covenant of Unanimous Consent would serve as the "Constitution" or founding/governing document (i.e. Covenant) for a proper society of freedom loving people.

A very long essay that draws heavily upon Hologram of Liberty

http://www.taroscopes.com/miscellanous-pages/weapons-additional.html

The Constitution Con
by Michael Tsarion

Among my people are wicked men who lie in wait like men who snare birds and like
those who set traps to catch men. Like cages full of birds, their houses are
full of deceit; they have become rich and powerful and have grown fat and sleek.
Their evil deeds have no limit - (Jeremiah 5:26)


The US Constitution was created on September 17, 1787, and was ratified (behind closed doors) on June 21, 1788. Thirty nine of the fifty five delegates who attended the Philadelphia Convention signed the document. Their con job is evident from the very first line penned. Legally, the "People" allegedly mentioned, are not sovereign. They are merely willing slaves who have been granted the illusion of freedom.

From an occult point of view, the Constitution was ratified on an Atonist festival day. It is a patently Solar Cult document. This is because the date of ratification was June 21st, the day when the sun ascends to its highest point in the zodiac.

      
Benjamin Franklin, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, were three of the men
who framed the infernal Constitution and pushed for its ratification.

Their document served the American aristocracy, not the people. In fact, the
document was never put before the people for ratification. This is because it
was openly opposed by the majority of men and women in the original thirteen
states.

The Constitutionalists were guileful traitors whose attendance at the
Philadelphia Convention was kept secret for an entire generation. Their document
served to leave the "door" of America unlocked and ajar, so that the country's
foreign enemies could surreptitiously re-enter in the days and years following
the supposed War of Independence. The hypocrisy and duplicity of the Federalists
is directly responsible for the present rise of fascism and advent of the New
World Order. We consider these men little more than British agents, because King
George himself - the man who declared eternal war on America - could not have
done as much damage to America as their actions wrought.
