Second Declaration of La Realidad (Reality) for Humanity Against Neoliberalism
Brothers and sisters of Africa, Asia, America, Europe, and Oceania:
Considering that we are:
Against the international order of death, against the globalization of war and armaments. Against dictatorships, against authoritarianism, against repression. Against the politics of economic liberalization, against hunger, against poverty, against robbery, against corruption. Against patriarchy, against xenophobia, against discrimination, against racism, against crime, against the destruction of the environment, against militarism. Against stupidity, against lies, against ignorance. Against slavery, against intolerance, against injustice, against marginalization, against forgetfulness. Against neoliberalism.
Considering that we are:
For the international order of hope, for a new, just, and dignified peace. For a new politics, for democracy, for political liberties. For justice, for life, and dignified work. For civil society, for full rights for women in every aspect, for the respect of elders, youth, and children, for the defense and protection of the environment. For intelligence, for culture, for education, for truth. For liberty, for tolerance, for inclusion, for having memory. For humanity.
First. That we will make a collective network of all our particular struggles and resistances. An intercontinental network of resistance against neoliberalism, an intercontinental network of resistance for humanity. This intercontinental network of resistance, recognizing differences and acknowledging similarities, will search to find itself with other resistances around the world. This intercontinental network of resistance will be the medium in which distinct resistances may support one another. This intercontinental network of resistance is not an organizing structure; it doesn’t have a central head or decision maker; it has no central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who resist.
Second. That we will make a network of communication among all our struggles and resistances. An intercontinental network of alternative communication against neoliberalism, an intercontinental network of alternative communication for humanity. This intercontinental network of alternative communication will be the medium by which distinct resistances communicate with one another. This intercontinental network of alternative communication is not an organizing structure, nor has a central head or decision maker, nor does it have a central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who speak and listen.
This we declare:
To speak and to listen for humanity and against neoliberalism. To resist and struggle for humanity and against neoliberalism. For the whole world: Democracy! Liberty! Justice! From whatever reality of whichever continent.

As American’s we’ve learned to embrace the contradictions we face between the things we say, things we’ve said, and its effects on our actual moral stances that we claim to care about. We understand the difference, the necessary gap. By this point everyone of us has implicitly lied, signing a way a long sheet of paper after claiming to have read and understood the whole thing: knowing full well we could not understand its complex entrapping rhetoric had we the free time to read it. We don’t mind this. Many Anti-Rick Perry supporters say “he’ll never be elected! he wanted to seceed the nation!” thinking this self-contradicting statement will hurt both his public opinion polls and his chances of winning primary. It can be argued that if the Anti-Rick Perrian is a remaining Obama Progressive Left supporter that the same statements can be made concerning Obama’s own re-election campaign, and that’s the key. We’ve all learned to realize that ‘politicians are just like people too’ and maybe some of the things they’ve previously said are like old facebook statuses… people are dynamic right? When it comes to wanting to like a candidate we can interpret the self-contradictory logic as part of his human quality.
Earlier today Rick Perry stood firm by his recent open borders policy issue affirming that in-state tuition should be given to illegal aliens if they’ve been living in the in-district house for more than 3 years. Rather than relying on typical policy platform to announce his stance, he is demonstrative and outspoken in what he does or doesn’t veto. By allowing education to be included as part of an economic package, and to be separated from rights of citizenry sets a new tone. It still sticks to the survival of the fittest bottom dollar, think globalization, package but it removes its conservative protectionist policy. The controversy of Rick Perry lies in his disregard for social political values (mexicans/blacks/abortions/hpv’s) but he is very firm in his neoliberal economic policy and his open border policys, and he has been very consistent in his pursuit of global investment opportunities since as early as 2007. Why should texans be offended to have their jobs taken away by somebody willing to do it cheaper and more efficient when it was texans who voted in Rick Perry to allow for the open border policy’s in the first place? It was the open borders NAFTA policy that from 1992-1997 encouraged 35 million immigrants to move to the US as Mexico was unable to compete with cheap corn prices.
It SHOULD come as no surprise then, that the bilderberg group representative Rick Perry, continues on course. It is controversial in light of being found to be controversial, in that a lot of lower class and middle class Texans thought they had voted somebody in to office that would make it easier for Texan citizens to work over non-texan citizens, not more difficult. This is emblematic of the cognitive dissonance most Americans face facing globalization continuing to elect somebody opening us up internationally as long as he’d wear a belt buckle and jeans.
Another odd thing to face in the future will be the discouraging news of the tech industry. We hope that through dominating facebook and google, as Americans we might be able to use tech innovations like apple to make us dominate the international market place. Little do we realize how international these companies are, or are becoming and how little of an effect ultimately it will have on a broader source of income for a large group of social classes. We will say “so the tech industry happened, then why is unemployment at a steady 20 percent?” Looking at Rick Perry who praised austin’s previous tech boom, saying, why can nobody get a decent sandwich or afford bread milk or gas? Why is the rent still too damn why? As the world slips global only those at the top of the totem poll (3 percent) benefit, the rest of us slide our middle class ipad dreams into argentina-style standard of living.
Starting Friday Central Austin will start using Dc10 Aircraft to fight off the Bastrop Wildfire’s using Fire Retardant Chemtrails. It will be interesting to note the simularities visually between these chemical droppings and the one we typically see. I hope someone will secure some footage. Otherwise, The fire has grown to 1400 homes and a wind has just blown into town.
It is harder to breath in Austin and we are being warned to stay indoors. It is growing semi-apocalyptic, but this is redudant to say at this point. Apocalypse Now
After working tirelessly during 1906-1909 to stage a mexican revolution, Guerrero explains his methods through a circulated pamphlet
“When we resolved to fling ourselves into the fight it is because we have ideas very well placed in our heads. The man who thinks and feels the ideas, does not fear sacrifices: he goes to them willing to give his life. You must have seen that I am uncompromising, that many times I argue details; that I appear obstinate and meticulous, and that I am not in conformity with the disciplined organization of the rebelious groups. I believe that a popular revolution should be spontaneous, without leaders. If I address you in this manner, it is because I believe that you truly love liberty… I am an anarchist; I don’t fight because I hate government, but for the love of a free humanity… Our revolution must show the manner of liberating not governing”
taken from “La vida heroica”
anti-sec — increased attacks of the cyber war within the intention of liberating our data mined information will be used as an excuse increase global monitoring of identities and global security as the internet expands into a real world
anti-federalist the united states would be best be operated as a set of sovereign states, collapsing our liberty into a consolidated government has only gotten us in trouble– texans for accountable government, ron paul support
anti-global — globalization does not exist as a fact of the market, as an effect of the market, it exists a phenomena induced by its conditional belief by numerous players within a socially integrated structure
anti-pharma — like most police penalizing for small crimes like domestic violence and weed, most doctors under big pharma only subscribe to symptomatic injuries that could be taken care of through a form of drugless renegade therapy, reiki, acupressure, yoga, etc.
anti-empire — a nation should be a description of its people and features and places and its social structure, not an additionally existant formal structure with its own goals and hopes and dreams like a leviathan, or a city (like austin) with additional taxes and expenses and missions
anti-ideological — our goal is not prostetlyzing a particular philosophically comprehensive doctrine in order to capture the world in a truth, we exist within our contradicting worldviews but not under a neutral liberal transparent discussion framework
anti-ironic — we must live in houses we’ve built, not as a reference to a historical collage of our past
anti-corporate – – third party collectives yielding human political authority are tyrannous
rebellion – – versus revolution, it hopes to offer critiques of social integration
revolt – – on a subjective level, willing to disregard any basic premise in order to overturn oneself to the truth
“It seems to be generally felt and acknowledged, that the affairs of this country are in a ruinous situation. With vast resources in our hands, we are impoverished by the continual drain of money from us in foreign trade; our navigation is destroyed; our people are in debt and unable to pay; industry is at a stand; our public treaties are violated, and national faith, solemnly plighted to foreigners and to our own citizens, is no longer kept. We are discontented at home, and abroad we are insulted and despised.
In this exigency people naturally look up to the continental Convention, in hopes that their wisdom will provide some effectual remedy for this complication of disorders. It is perhaps the last opportunity which may be presented to us of establishing a permanent system of Continental Government; and, if this opportunity be lost, it is much to be feared that we shall fall into irretrievable confusion.
How the great object of their meeting is to be attained is a question which deserves to be seriously considered. Some men, there is reason to believe, have indulged the idea of reforming the United States by means of some refined and complicated schemes of organizing a future Congress in a different form. These schemes, like many others with which we have been amused in times past, will be found to be merely visionary, and produce no lasting benefit.–The error is not in the form of Congress, the mode of election, or the duration of the appointment of the members. The source of all our misfortunes is evidently in the want of power in Congress. To be convinced of this, we need only recollect the vigor, the energy, the unanimity of this country a few years past, even in the midst of a bloody war, when Congress governed the continent. We have gradually declined into feebleness, anarchy and wretchedness, from that period in which the several States began to exercise the sovereign and absolute right of treating the recommendations of Congress with contempt. From that time to the present, we have seen the great Federal Head of our union cloathed with the authority of making treaties without the power of performing them; of contracting debts without being able to discharge them, or to bind others to discharge them; of regulating our trade, and providing for the general welfare of the people, in their concerns with foreign nations, without the power of restraining a single individual from the infraction of their orders, or restricting any trade, however injurious to the public welfare.”
– Congress certainly wants more power. Is all this talk about States becoming obsolete ironic because its so true or is it a strange conspiracy? I don’t think my state could protect me from the fed, that’s frightening.
