A spirit is haunting the Americas — the spirit of unity. All the powers that be have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spirit: Globalists and Populists, Merkel and Putin, Communists and Nationalists.Where is the cry for unity that has not been labeled as unrealistic by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of unity, against the status quo?Two things result from this fact:I. Freedom is already acknowledged by all world powers to be itself a power.II. It is high time that True American Patriots should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spirit of Unity with a manifesto of the One America Party itself.To this end, American Patriots of various nationalities have assembled in Arkansas and sketched the following manifesto, to be published in the English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Quechua, Nahuatl, Cherokee, and the Inuit languages.
Part 1: Us and Them
The history of American society is the history of colonial struggles.Portugal and Brazil, France and Canada, Spain and Mexico, Britain and the United States, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the American Dream.In the earlier days of America, we find almost everywhere a complicated arrangement of society into various tribes, a manifold ability to separate Us. In ancient Tiwanaku we have shamans, quipu counters, aquaculture farmers, guanaco herders, slaves; in the Viceyroy of Peru, feudal lords, rapists, thieves, adventurers, corn farmers, miners; in almost all of these groups, again, subordinate gradations.The modern American society that has sprouted from the ruins of colonial society has not done away with tribal antagonisms. It has but established new borders, new opportunities for corruption, new forms of struggle in place of the old ones.Our epoch, the epoch of the Jeff Bezos Billionaires, possesses, however, this distinct feature: it has simplified commerce. Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps, into two great factions directly facing each other — Us and Them.From crossing the Bering Strait during the Ice Age sprang the intrepid explorers of the earliest settlements. From these adventures the first elements of our continent were developed.The second discovery of America, the rounding of the Cape, opened up fresh ground for the ringing of freedom. The East-Indian and Chinese markets, the colonization of America, trade with the Europea and Africa, the increase in the means of exchange and in commodities generally, gave to commerce, to navigation, to industry, an impulse never before known, and thereby, to the revolutionary element in the True American Patriot, a rapid development.The mercantile system of industry, in which industrial production had been monopolised by Them, would no longer suffice for the growing wants of Us. The American dream took its place. The mercantilists were pushed on one side by the American middle class; the struggle for power between the different colonizers vanished in the face of American independence.Meantime the markets kept ever growing, the demand ever rising. Even with immigration there was never enough labor. Thereupon, steam and machinery revolutionized industrial production. The place of manufacture was taken by the giant, Titans of Technology; the place of the American middle class by technological billionaires, the leaders of the whole mercenary armies, the modern Prince, Erik.Modern industry has established the world market, for which the discovery of America paved the way. Our market has given an immense development to commerce, to navigation, to communication by cell phone. This development has, in its turn, reacted on the extension of our lives; and in proportion as 3D printing, Amazon Prime, GPS navigation, Hollywood movies extended, in the same proportion America developed, increased its capital, and pushed into the background every world power since the age of exploration.We see, therefore, how the modern American is him or herself the product of a long course of development, of a series of revolutions in the modes of profit and of discovery.Each step in the development took us farther from Them and closer to Us. Our American Island will no longer be under the sway of the foreign nobility, an armed and self-governing association of True American Patriots will conquer for ourself, in the modern representative State, exclusive political sway.The American, historically, has played a most revolutionary part.The USA, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put tariffs to all European, Chinese, and Russian steel and aluminum. We have heroically torn asunder the motley foreign allegiances that bound man to his “natural supèrieurs”, but we have also left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than pure tribalism. Social Media has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of follow 4 follow. They have resolved personal worth into exchange value, but in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, We have set up that single, unconscionable freedom — Unity, founded by liberty and representation.The lack of vibrant communities and social safety nets have stripped of its halo every middle class job hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into dissatisfied hourly employees. They have torn away from the family its sentimental veil, and has reduced the family unit to a mere money relation. Who can cover the costs of a funeral?We have seen how it came to pass that the brutal display of vigor in the Skirpal poisoning, which reactionaries so much admire, found its fitting complement in the 400 pound hacker in Mom’s basement. Native Americans were the first to show what man’s activity can bring about. The first Americans accomplished wonders far surpassing Egyptian pyramids, Roman aqueducts, and Gothic cathedrals; American revolutions that put in the shade all former Exoduses of nations and crusades.The Jeff Bezos Billionaire class cannot exist without constantly cost-cutting, seeking near-term returns to capital, and receiving tax incentives not provided to Us. Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social norms, everlasting uncertainty and agitation distinguishes this American epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, will be swept away, all new-formed trade agreements with non democracies lead to job losses for Us and profits for Them before the ink can dry. The American Union will institute fair trade agreements of 10% for all democracies not on the American Island. This will ensure competition and development while also protecting local industries. For any products entering the American Island from non-democracies products will have a minimum 50% tariff or be banned entirely. No longer will American liberties compete with Authoritarian government sponsored labor. Before All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and the True American Patriot is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with our American Island. They want to exploit our American market to give us a meaningless life, and cheaper televisions, and steal our inherent wealth. To the great chagrin of Americans, they have pulled from under our feet the value of our labor. All old-established American industries have been outsourced or are daily being outsourced. American workers are dislodged by child and slave laborers, whose introduction becomes a life and death question for all, by companies that no longer work with our society at heart, but by Billionaires and Foreigners who seek out the lowest quality and cheapest inputs of production drawn from the remotest zones; industries whose products pollute, not only American airs, rivers and lands, but in every quarter of the globe.
In place of the freedom, satisfied by the click-bait of the internet, we find nothing, requiring only insults and populistic rhetoric. In place of the village and universal rights, we use a screen to raise our children, constantly stressed by our bank accounts’ risk to foreign competition. And as in day to day life, so too in our minds. The intellectual creations of the American nations are stolen by China. True freedom becomes more and more impossible, and from the numerous national and local governments, there arises a nondemocratic world government of Jeff Bezos Billionaires.The American dream, by the true internal feeling of unity and self worth, by the immensely facilitated means of communication, draws all, even the Venezuelans, into the One America. The cheap prices of commodities like oil are the heavy artillery by which Foreign influence strengthen itself and forces free Americans to become food stamp collectors. The One America Party compels all American nations, on pain of inflation, to adopt the Dollar as currency; it compels Us to introduce what it calls justice into Our midst, i.e., to have laws enforced equitably. In a word, we create One America in our image free from JBB’s, foreign powers, and corrupt South American strongman. They have subjected America to their rule. They have created enormous monopolies, and greatly increased their control over our livelihoods. Just as they have made America dependent on foreign producers, so disunity has made poor and rich Americans alike, nations of migrant mothers on nations of soccer moms, the South on the North.They keep more and more caring nothing of the scattered state of our healthcare, of our ability to retire, and for all to have equal opportunity. Theyhave decimated small town populations, centralized the means of production, and have concentrated wealth in a few hands. The only survivable response of this is to form The American Union. One Island, or but loosely connected States, with separate cultures, the equitably enforcement of our inalienable rights, one currency, independent representative governments, and systems of combined organizations, multiple nations uniting our American Island, with the dream to create a more perfect union.The colonial powers, during its murderous rule of scarce four hundred years, have killed more Americans than all generations before or after. Subjection of the Indigenous, distance from Europe, tobacco and cotton, railways, the mine at Potosi, buffalo hunting, the Panama Canal, whole populations conjured out of the ground — what earlier century had even a glimpse of this dichotomy of freedom and oppression?We see then: the risks of freedom without equality, on whose foundation the colonialist built itself up, were generated in oppressive society. At a certain stage in the development of the American Island the cry for freedom was heard by Toussaint Louverture, to San Martin, to Jose Marti, To George Washington, in a sense, the foreign control of our lives became no longer compatible with reality; they became so many fetters. They had to be burst asunder; they were burst asunder.
A similar movement is going on before our own eyes. Modern American society, with its entry into overseas wars, a deterioration of Central American Society by gangs, and return of strongman leaders to South America, is an American Island at risk of ruin. America is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by our lack of unity.
For many a decade past we have seen China morph into a global power. Ask the Argentino who owns all the supermarkets. Ask the Chilean who controls the currency. They are coming for you job next. An America without unity cannot survive Chinese influence, but an America united has one billion people.
It is enough to mention the embrace of Trump the we must put the entire existence of America society on trial. Each day America’s risk increases. In these times of turmoil, a great part of society wants the status quo to remain the same, if only for worry of personal loss, but once we see that it is only They, the False American Patriots and the Foreign Powers who will lose, America will be united. Together, we bring unity into the whole of American society and endanger the existence of Foreign property ownership.
The conditions of our future are too important to comprise the wealth inherent in all Americans who call this Island home. And how does One America improve lives? First, by one American currency, maintained by the central bank of the United States, but with each new nation having representation. This strengthens the American currency, and does not allow for the devastating conditions which are occurring in Argentina and Venezuela. A mass of productive forces; One America would be the world’s largest economy for the next century. We would open new local markets, and by the more thorough exploitation of the old friendships our island’s peace, prosperity, and protection can be insured. That is to say, by paving the way for One America created for and by the people, and by diminishing the means whereby future wars are prevented.The technologies with which the Jeff Bezos Billionaires came to power are now turned against them.But not only has the America forged the weapons that bring death to itself; it has also called into existence the men who ought to wield those weapons — the incorruptible government leaders— the ones with integrity, the ones who are Us.
In proportion as more American nations join the One America Union, freedom is increased in the same proportion as is justice, the other American nations will see the benefit— people living with a social safety net and dignity, and who find investments for ideas. These people, who now have equity and opportunity are able to live local cultures no longer exposed to all the vicissitudes of foreign labor, to all the fluctuations of private equity firms.
Secondly, to the extensive use of derivatives, and to the new found wealth from our Billionaire and Foreign Ownership taxes, the work of Americans can regain our individual character, and, consequently, all charm for the workman. We become free to the adventures of the American dream, and this is only the most simple, most divine, and most uniquely chosen task that is required of Us. Hence, the cost of local production is not a cost, it is an investment almost entirely in the generation of families and one-of-a-kind Americanism. But the price of a commodity is not correctly valued and equal to its true cost. In proportion, therefore, we must balance creation and conservation, but neither is a cost, and both are investments. Third, all 514 of those Jeff Bezos Billionaires will be allowed to select any and all assets no more than 1 billion dollars. No True American Patriot would ever have 160 billion dollars while Americans suffer in poverty. Of the remaining assets all will be liquidated and used to create the Micro Lending Bank of America. The interest on these monies will fund the One America Justice system rooting out corruption and crime from Alaska to Ushuaia.
Nay more will They convert the local producer, artisan, service provide, into the competitor foreign unfree societies. Masses of unskilled workers, crowded into the WalMart, are organized like soldiers. As privates of the army each is placed under the command of a perfect hierarchy of managers and executives. Not only are We not going to compete with Them, having one life dictates We must live it in the unity of One America, and not slaves to competition with Authoritarianism. The more openly We proclaims unity to be our end and aim, the more powerful, the more uplifting and the more just it is.Differences of age, gender, race, and nationality have no longer any distinctive social validity for exploitation. All will have access to the internet and to independent media with proper funding for real investigative journalism, more or less free to use, with constraints placed on minors and criminals.Nay more is a good job found, that a family is struck down by illness and skyrocketing medical bills. With the one billion person single payer American Island, and the modern use of technology to monitor health and activity, insurance prices can be incredibly lower for the healthiest among us, fair for the people who are at no fault of their own, and just to the people who don’t care for their health.The lower strata of the middle class — the small tradespeople, shopkeepers, the teachers— all these sink gradually into living paycheck to paycheck, partly because we have not invested in our societies. Each individual drowns in the competition with the foreign cheap labor, partly because we have not believed how small purchases had enormous societal impacts. Thus the True American Patriot is recruited from all classes of the population.
America has gone through various stages of development. With its birth begins its struggle with Nature. At first the contest is carried on by pure will, then by the colonialist, then by the abolition of slavery, then by the World Wars in another part of the world, against the cruel threat of Authoritarianism, then by the Cold War and Revolutions, then by the victory of capitalism and now by the threat of a return to tribalism and strengthening of Our Island’s invisible borders. We direct our attacks not against the Billionaires themselves, but against the society which accepts grossly unjust disparities of wealth; this destroys human decency and makes empathy impossible, theysmash to pieces social mobility, theyset America ablaze, they seek to maintain by force their non-allegiant empires of wealth.At this stage, America still forms an incoherent mass scattered over the whole continent, and broken up by the invisible borders. Anywhere we unite to form more compact bodies stability increases. But of the union of the Americas, which party, in order to attain its own political ends, is compelled to set the whole world in motion, and is moreover yet, for a time, able to do so? At this stage, therefore, the Democrats do not fight their enemies, but the enemies of their enemies, the Republicans, who also do the same. Thus, the whole political movement is concentrated in the hands of the partisan hacks; every victory so obtained is a victory for the party.But with the development of the One America Union, the GDP not only increases in number; it becomes more self-fulfilling as the velocity of money increases in hands of lower income individuals. Money can change hands more times among Americans instead of going directly overseas. Our strength will grows, and they fear that strength.The various interests and conditions of life within the ranks of the America will be more and more free, in proportion as wealth is capped at 1 billion dollars, and business owners salaries are capped at 50 times their lowest paid employee. The growing competition among the producers for this wealth will result in increased wages and will produce new products for this market. The increasing improvement of social and individual based investment, ever more rapidly developing, makes our lives more and more vibrant. The collisions between individual dreams and societal responsibilities take more and more the character of collisions between Us and Them. Thereupon, the Nations have begun to form combinations (Mercosur) to improve relations; clubbing together in order to keep up the flow of commerce and communication; governments found other associations because of our lack of true American unity.
Now and then Argentina’s currency is stable, but only for a time. The real fruit of our battles lies, not in the immediate result, but in the ever expanding union of America. This union is hindered by the lack of justice and gangs in America’s poorest communities that is created by tyrannical capitalism, and the global desire for cocaine, which force the migration of communities. It was just this migration that was fueled the rise of Nationalism to protect our meager jobs, all of us on this Island together, into competition between cultures. But every American struggle is an opportunity. And that union, to attain which the we are so deserving, a true Pan American highway across the Darien Gap, true justice for all, the right for every American to an equal opportunity. Thanks to the elimination of Jeff Bezos Billionaires, we can achieve this in a few years. This super continent of independent nation states and, consequently of friendly competition, is continually being upset again by the competition with the real enemy. The East rises up again, stronger, firmer, mightier. The Chinese Communist threat compels legislative recognition of particular interests of all American workers, by taking advantage of the the great ocean between Us and Them. Thus, the One America Party must be formed. The Billionaires themselves, therefore, supply Us with their own elements of political and general education, in other words, they own the news. What is fake and real? But, they have also created the technology to tax efficiently, to monitor corrupt payments, to track shell company property ownership, to witness mafia money rush into bitcoin, to examine strange stock transactions, the true weapons for fighting the Jeff Bezos Billionaires. Furthermore, as we have already seen, entire sections of the ruling class are, by the advance of compounding interest, precipitated into a life free from consequence, and are never in the least threatened in their caviar conditions of existence. They also hurt income for Us by decreasing the velocity of the Great American Dollar and removing potential elements of the economy and progress. Finally, in times when the American struggle nears the decisive hour, the progress of dissolution going on within Them, in fact within the whole range of society, assumes such a violent, glaring character, that a small section of their small club cuts itself adrift, and joins the call for Unity, the call that holds the future in our hands. Just as, therefore, at an earlier period, a section of the Baby Boomer generation went over to the Jeff Bezos Billionaires, so will a portion of the JBB’s come back to Us, and in particular, a portion of the Yvon Chouinard ideologists, who are woke to the level of comprehending theoretically the One America movement as a whole. Of all the Nations that stand face to face with the One America today, the South American is a really revolutionary patriot. Other dreams decay and finally disappear in the face of the Modern Gran Colombia; the dream of Jose Marti is our essential product.The middle Americas, the Salvadorean, the Honduran, the Nicaraguan, the thug gangs, all of us compete against the each other, to save from extinction our existence as small fractions of the American Island. We are therefore forced into migration, leaving the homes and culture we love. Nay more, One America will bring justice and order to Middle America, and Make Central America Great Again. If by chance, you think One America is against migration and immigration, let me stop you there, One America is against the actors and corruption which lead to the migration of desperation. One America is against American Governments which do not protect the life, liberty and pursuit of freedom for each citizen equitably. They hurt every citizen of the American Island, and we all have a duty to protect our neighbors. The “dangerous class”, the deplorables, that passively rotting mass thrown from the lowest layers of redneck society, may, here and there, be swept into the movement by an American revolution; its conditions of life, however, prepare it far more for the part of a Confederate rebel yell of reactionary intrigue. In the condition of the US Government, those of the Old White Man society at large are all part of the swamp. The indigenous is without land; his relation to his wife and children has no longer anything in common with the historical family relations. Modern distribution of property is all in the hands of Ted Turner, modern subjection to capital, the same in Bolivia as in Mexico, in Argentina as in Brazil, has stripped us of every trace of individual character. Law, education, opportunity, are so inequitably distributed, behind which lurk in ambush alcoholism and depression. In America we celebrate success, if someone gets the upper hand by ingenuity of effort he or she is rewarded. In the American Union we do not support subjecting society to a Gini Coefficient over 30. The True American Patriot must be able to say enough is enough, not by abolishing the right to succeed and profit, but by common sense, honor and integrity establishing a new mode of competition. It is necessary for the One America Party to dissolve the current political tribes which have kept us from connecting with each other. All previous American movements were movements of the people, or in the interest of freedom. The One America movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority. The silent majority, the ones most disappointed in the embarrassment at Pennsylvania Ave., cannot stir, cannot raise itself up, without the whole supercontinent strata of American society being sprung into action.Though not in substance, yet in form, the struggle of Us with Them is at first a national struggle. The citizens of each country must, of course, first of all settle matters within each respective government. In depicting the most general phases of the development of the One America Party, we traced the more or less open civil war, now raging within existing society, up to the point where mass shootings occur on a seemingly daily pace, and where the true loss of freedom occurs i.e living with fear. Hitherto, every part of the American Island has a need, and can benefit from the opportunities of the One America Party and the American Union. But in order to achieve this, certain conditions must be assured under which it can, at least, achieve acknowledgeable success. The American Union must be loose, strong, flexible, and fair. The current American, on the contrary, instead of rising with the process of technology, sinks deeper and deeper below the conditions of his parents. We have become personal contractors, working three jobs to maintain our wealth. And here it becomes evident, that the Jeff Bezos Billionaires, Corrupt Politicians, and Foreign Powers are unfit any longer to be the ruling class in American society, and to impose Theirconditions of existence upon our society. They are unfit to rule because they are incompetent to assure an adequate existence to the slaves within Their for-profit-prisons. Theycannot help but push Us into such a state, so They get to feed Us with food stamps, instead of a victory farm. Society can no longer live under these oppressors, in other words, America is no longer compatible with Them. The essential conditions for the existence and for the sway of the Billionaire class is the formation and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous; the condition of America is Reality-TV. Our problems rest exclusively on the restraints They have put on Our freedom, selling your data to everyone. The advance of technology, whose voluntary promoter is Us, eliminates the isolation of the communities, brings about new developments, and promotes Our revolutionary unity. The development of Technology, therefore, cuts from under its feet the very foundation on which the Jeff Bezos Billionaire produces and appropriates products. What They therefore have produced, above all, are their own grave-diggers. Their fall and the victory of the One America Union are equally inevitable.
