The 28th Amendment Meme

A very important aspect of a Socialocracy movement is rapid dissemination of an idea or a meme. Recently one that has come to my attention via a couple of emails from different sources is an amendment to our great constitution. It is being called the 28th amendment for obvious reasons. It will be the next amendment as we only have twenty seven.

This amendment would be quite simple and has all the hallmarks of a Socialocracy. The laws will be equally applied to all.

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the
United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or
Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to
the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally
to the citizens of the United States.

This particular amendment will again drive a stake into the current nobility vs commoner classes that have arisen in the last hundred years since the founding of the Federal Reserve. If this particular meme takes traction, we will start the see the true green shoots of a renaissance.

One of the overriding memes I see in the cities is the disrespect towards the police. There has become a very adversarial relationship. In my own experience, anytime I have encounter these so called "peace" officers, I have left a bit poorer. Why is this?

It is simply because there are so many rules and laws that everyone has become a criminal so it has become very easy for the state to extract, dare I say extort, money from the populace. Additionally, since most have a gut feeling that the laws are not being applied equally a growing disrespect blossoms into outright hostility towards the police.

The police were to solve crimes and not necessarily prevent them. Unless of course the officers would walk the beat and get to know the community. This has changed.

If the 28th Amendment were to be enacted, it would make the population believe again. It would respect again as it would now know that the laws would have to be applied equally. This would be an enormous start in the process.

Here are some quotes from an email I received:

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women
serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives
protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While
politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines
of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and
receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does
not make any sense.

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress
family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans.
This will get national attention if other news networks will
broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will
all of it stop?

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of
Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress
could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they
specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have
passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for
sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those
laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare
Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem
logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly
don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or
whatever. The self-serving must stop.

So? What do you think?
