A Call to Arms
Fellow citizens of the earth! Too long has humanity progressed under tyranny, in all its horrific (and often deceptive) forms. The current conditions of the United States and of the world are favorable to the cause of true justice; with so many injustices and atrocities committed in the name of the state, humanity can no longer allow the mass enslavement of itself: the time has come to rise up and overthrow those who would assert their authority over you! Humanity has a moral duty to do so—not to do so would only be to further acquiesce to the attempts of the unjust governments of the world to legitimize themselves. And for the ...view middle of the document...
But fight is what we must do, comrades! Fight, and you will see that it was not you who needed them, but they who needed you! Fellow citizens of the earth, take arms, and join us in cooperative anarchism, so that we might usher in a new era for humanity: one of unprecedented peace, prosperity, and the unconditional pursuit of happiness!
The UNConstitution of Chapel Hill
The people of Chapel Hill and surrounding areas do establish this UNConstitution on this 25th day of November of the year 2077. The purpose of this document is to solidify the deliberate choice to forgo the age-old tradition of establishing a state, and to outline a rough first draft of a blueprint for creating the most just, prosperous, and exemplary non-state in the history of human association.
Toward this end, it is also necessary to specify what this document is not:
-It is not “set in stone,” or immutable.
-It is not a “Constitution,” or even truly a “constitution.”
-It is not to be subject to any form of statist subjection.
-It is not meant to speak for everyone in the community, but generally should be recognized as the foundation of the community. Attempting to establish a state within the community, however, is impermissible.
-It is not to be honored by any jurisdiction outside of the community of Chapel Hill, although other communities may establish their own, modeled off of this one if they please.
This UNConstitution also sets out to define what sorts of freedom are acceptable, and what sorts of rights the people of Chapel Hill should expect to observe for one another, in order to best honor justice and best benefit the community.
1. Everyone has a right to life, and to live their life without being unwantedly harmed by others. All other rights take this right as a premise.
2. Everyone has a right to choose for him or herself.
3. Everyone has a right to mobility. In general, it is impermissible to forbid the free movement of a person.
4. Everyone has a right to the resources necessary to sustain life, within reason.
5. Everyone has a right to express themselves as they see fit, within reason.
6. Everyone has a right to own property that is within their capacity to maintain. The owner of the property shall generally be the one to decide how it is used.
7. Everyone has a right to enter into agreements that follow naturally from reason.
8. Everyone has a right to equal protection and justice.
9. Everyone has a right to physical force by any means necessary to defend the aforementioned rights, so long as this force does not cause unnecessary harm.
The community of Chapel Hill will actively encourage direct participation in the welfare of the community. There will be town councils established that will meet frequently, and all residents of the community, as well as non-residents, are encouraged to...
