Mobile Declaration of Independence: The Preface

Over the last few weeks, we have been pursuing the creation of a Mobile Declaration of Independence.  Two weeks ago, we identified our oppressor as Big Bell Dogma.  Last week, we developed a list of charges against this oppressor.

This week, we re-work the preface to the American Declaration of Independence to express the cause we are declaring.  Let me know what you think!

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for people to dissolve the technological bonds which have connected them with a specific place for a specific task and to assume among the powers of the earth, the free and mobile status to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

  • That all men are created equal.
  • That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.
  • That among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
  • That to secure these rights, Technologies are implemented among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the enabled,
  • That whenever any Form of Technology becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to replace it, and to implement new Technology, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Technologies long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the tools to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Technology, and to provide new Enablers for their future happiness.

Such has been the patient sufferance of this society; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their formerly adopted Technologies. The history of the present Big Bell Dogma is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the continuation of an absolute Tyranny over all people and businesses. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
