The European occupants of colonial American were dependent upon a small group of leaders to solidify their efforts and unify their thinking.

Instead they chose the most universal principles they could conceive over individual opportunities for wealth and power.

The Declaration of Independence was really about a people’s Dependence

On Selfless United Leaders
Acting on Universal Principle
Who in turn were Dependent
upon the Will and Sacrifice of the People

On July 4, 2014 we remain dependent on those we empower:
Representatives
Executives
Judiciaries
Government & Corporations

To operate our democratic system of principles and processes
in order to nurture
to educate

and to protect us from tyranny, inequality and injustice

As a child, I was asked to participate in one of the nation’s longest running traditional transfer of flag ceremonies. I still remember a part of my speech. “This flag, a symbol, unites the living and the heroic dead into one great cause – freedom and liberty….”
I pledged allegiance to the flag throughout my public school years, and to one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. In my early school years, we recited the lord’s prayer along with the pledge of allegiance. I did not understand the necessity to separate church and state. I did not understand that indivisible meant unable to be separated. I did not understand that freedom included the freedom to not be irrevocably harmed. I did not understand that justice for all meant equal justice for all, equal rights for all, equal protections for all, equal opportunity for all.
I did not understand what it meant to pledge allegiance to the flag – not direct allegiance to the principles of one nation offering liberty and justice for all.

That about half of the Supreme Court do not believe in one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I did not understand that most of my classmates faced challenges and visible identities that made them divisible from our allegiance to liberty and justice for all. They,we, I, were different from some athletic male white normative standard figment.
On bad days, I thought my school was some form of insane asylum – where nurture and equality and truth and systemic understandings were banned. On good days, like the escapees from the King of Hearts, I would find some whimsey, a bearable lightness of being, sung and danced to the tune of Doris Day’s Que Sera, Sera.
A flag carries an identity. It is semiotic. But its fabric and form do not  translate into principles or challenges or investments in what will be. Or what should be. We are the translators and we need to learn the systemic language of Nurture, Equality Truth and Systems if the flag and the profound hope represented by its semiotic fabric are to be realized.

The End of Indian Mascots

NO INDIGENOUS CHILD, NO CHILD,
SHOULD GROW UP IN A WORLD
WHERE PROFESSIONAL SPORTS AND MEDIA
PERSIST IN USING DISCRIMINATORY MASCOTS.

I am a grandfather (mishomis) who enjoys bringing my grandchildren to football games. But when these strong proud young people grabbed my arm and cringed in both embarrassment and fear as fans near us chanted “scalp the f…ing Indians” and when they saw the minstrel show of white people and mascots desecrating their very identity, the experience for them became one about trauma, harm and degradation. And for me, the experience was sadly just one of hundreds throughout my life – convincing evidence that ALL Indian mascots disrespect our peoples and our standing as equals.

Like all mishomisinonnig, I have lived my life under the daily media stream of discrimination and oppression against American Indians. And every day of my adult life I have fought to assert the inalienable rights of all indigenous people. I am not talking about being offended. I am talking about harm and trauma to me, our children and to our way of life when the dominant culture continues to appropriate our land, our sacred religion and culture, and our heritage and traditions for your amusement and profit.



All mascots manufactured by non-indigenous people hurt our children, denigrate our peoples, and dishonor every man, woman and child who has suffered under the oppression of your culture. The issue for me is less about the specific word or image, although the “Reds..ns” name and the “Chief Wa..oo” image are horrific, but about the very idea that your culture has any right to appropriate our sacred names, images and beliefs as your pet mascots.

The battle for equality, and against prejudice, requires eternal vigilance for the long list people subject to the bite of institutional discrimination – women, religious minorities, people of color, indigenous people, immigrants, seniors, GLBT people, poor people, people with physical and behavioral differences….

If it is illegal to use the discriminatory “N” word in a traditional workplace setting, it is just as illegal to use the “R” word in a non-traditional workplace such as a stadium or practice facility. If it is illegal for public bodies and publicly supported institutions to use the discriminatory “N” word, it is similarly illegal for them to use the “R” word in a public school setting. If it is clearly wrong for a rich white team owner to display his institutional racism, then the tyranny and injustice must be blatantly obvious to all when similarly racist team owners, by definition, continue their tradition of denying that their appropriation of our race for their mascots, despite our overwhelming protests, and despite overwhelming evidence of harm to our children, is anything but racist.

It is illegal in the United States to discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, physical difference or gender preference. While many indigenous people choose to live their lives with pride and independence from the negative influences of institutional racism, it remains necessary to assert our equal rights as citizens of the United States through education and action.

The name for the Washington DC football team is a racial slur, is an illegal form of hate speech and discrimination, that damages a protected class of people by denying us respect and equality: in the workplace of the stadium and team offices, at government supported facilities and regulated contractors, at public gatherings, over regulated airwaves, and in corporations producing electronic and print content. The “R” word has no place in a country of equals. No similar denigrating term for other protected classes of people would be tolerated, and we would not accept any such denigration of anyone. Yet, sports organizations, media organizations and many fans have inherited an immunity to the racism embedded in sports mascots and the damage they do to the freedom of anyone to live their lives without experiencing prejudice or ridicule.



The argument or rationalization that sports mascots filled with fan tradition should somehow be immune from the laws of the land that protect people from discrimination hardly matches the damage to the heritage and traditions of indigenous people perpetrated by the mascots and by centuries of desecration and injustice that continue to this day.

All Indigenous Mascots manufactured for professional and school sports teams by and for non-indigenous people are unwelcome caricatures that do not represent the religion, culture, beliefs and rich history of native people. Moreover, there is overwhelming evidence from impartial academic research that unwelcome indigenous mascots and stereotypes and caricatures damage indigenous children, damage indigenous futures, and damage the perception of all protected classes.

Impartial academic research is abundantly clear that mascots and stereotypes harm the targeted class of people, Indigenous People, with children being the most affected by negative consequences. Moreover, this same research suggests that any specific use of mascots and stereotypes crosses over and affects all protected classes because any demeaning of one class increases the context and perceptions of all targeted classes as to their social status and self image, and increases the likelihood that the general population will view all classes of protected people with a lesser perception of equality.

There is a growing list of media organizations and reporters who are refusing to report or publish mascot names and images, using instead the harmless home city names. If you represent a media organization, stop using Indian mascots in your coverage. If you are a member of a community that still retains an Indian mascot, work to change the mascot. Hundreds and hundreds of teams have changed their mascots and while controversial and painful for some at the beginning, after a short period of time the new team names and images have become a stronger tradition.

On behalf of The National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and the Media, we insist that all sports mascots that use indigenous names and images be changed by the media and by the perpetrators so that they can no longer harm our children, and deny indigenous people and all protected classes of people our civil rights. We are a beautiful part of the fabric of the United States of America, as are all of our fellow brothers and sisters experiencing systemic injustice.

Mascots and the resulting institutional racism contribute to severe hardships faced by many indigenous people. The extent of damage is unimaginable to all but us. The issue is not political correctness. The issue is equality. I know the simple step of Changing the Mascots, just words and images, will have a massive impact toward equality for all, flesh and bone.

Wars can be reactive, waged to stop perceived tyranny, violence, genocide and threat. Or they can be waged proactively to gain a specific objective from a population not engaged in violence. Proactive wars are initiated because the aggressors believe they can prevail, or they are driven by hates that overwhelm calculation.
Wars are fought on the backs of the commons, supplying the soldiers, the victims and the precious resources to wage war. We can envision future wars and acts of terror being waged electronically and biologically, through remote control and distance. Locally, guns and bombs and drones of all shapes and sizes will become failsafe, automatically targeting and locking in so that the target is absolutely the victim. Aggressors and haters will become more effective killers.

WAR: It is NOT Business As Usual.

-


On this Memorial Day, we acknowledge the legacy of every person who has died in every war. For the soldiers, we campaign for their safety, security and care in battle and in barracks, and we urge that every soldier and every soldier’s family be nurtured and cared for by our society so that they do not suffer from the economic, physical and emotional trauma of service. For every civilian, every man, woman, child, and animal, we acknowledge their shortened existence, their trauma, all of the associated forms of pain and suffering, and the absolute value of their lives and the immeasurable loss of their futures.



We acknowledge that the constructs we call war, terrorism, street violence, violent crime, rape, hate crimes, hazardous products, mass murders, genocide, famine and poverty linked disease are all preventable, are all equally intolerable, all have their roots in hate and displacement, and all can be addressed by the aggressive pursuit  of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systemic solutions. We urge that every victim and every family of a victim be nurtured and cared for by our society so that they do not suffer from the economic, physical and emotional trauma of inequality. We urge that every victimizer and potential victimizer be viewed as our systemic failure to successfully include them in the dynamic potential of a life without violence and to inclusively nurture , educate and care for them beginning at the earliest possible age.

Memorial Day helps us never forget the past. It also helps us never forget that we are the solution, through systems, clear objectives and accountability. What are the objectives of our nation? What is our support system for Nurture, Equality and Truth? We are looking for inclusive objectives and an action plan from the leaders of our nation and from the followers, not politics or business as usual.
 
Lets start by declaring a war against hate, on all fronts, from all perspectives, on behalf of the billions of future victims. Lets agree that it is unconscionable and unforgivable that the Supreme Court, The Congress, Corporate and Government Executives, and approximately 1/3 of the eligible voters of America desecrate the majesty of the US Constitution and the enormous sacrifice of people acting in service to our nation by denying equality for all, by lying and misleading for self serving purposes, and by failing to grasp that our future depends upon massive investments in the very people who are failing to prosper, including our veterans and their families, including all people victimized by the corruption of power, and including every child hoping that we actually care about each and every one of them and their future.

We know our descriptions include lots and lots of words without the tangible hooks most people want to grab on to. Part of the difficulty is that we still lack the resources to develop our amazing fully realized visualization CENTRO – a dynamic semiotic gaming interface for everything. So we still have to try to explain our patents and inventions with primitive words and primitive engines. We are working on a short movie that we expect will bring our dreams to life so that you can experience them and hopefully embrace them.
AN ANNOUNCEMENT:Action Takes Center Stage
For the time being, we are going to pause the creation of new Daily Y Posts. We encourage all visitors to click through the large sampling of our archives at WWW.YWORLDS.COM to experience the depth and breadth of our work and vision. If you like what you see, trust what you see, want to see more, here’s how you get to become an active part of our revolution and new enterprises.

1) We invent and teach the world to use a universal high level visual language to represent complexity across barriers of language, culture and inherited linearity.
2) We develop a global proof process institute as a generative resource, a consultancy and a source of validation and strategic decision-making. We become a resource for objective assessment and train people throughout the world to employ a transparent visual framework and universal process to reach a documented conclusion. We systemically capture essential high value global knowledge through a Global Knowledge Mapping Project, using technology and process to extract high value knowledge and strategic intelligence from conferences and key sources – and then distribute this original knowledge to the world.
3) We leverage the power of mass action – become an originating cooperative member.
4) We create a large scale, integrated world filled with generosity, openness and progressive action – slowly and surely.
5) We promote an integrated peer to peer enterprise creation and propagation exchange that functions as a large scale fully sustainable economic system constructed on top of the building blocks of small scale 
initiatives.
6) We operate a rapid local prototyping and dissemination framework to identify and share with the world exceptional products and services.
7) We vitalize sustaining local agriculture and eco-systemics with education and application kits; and knowledge, product and services exchanges.
8) We fund the local production and assembly of highly effective world machines and products that offer a deep impact on the quality of life.
Y Worlds, through its WAYFINDER BRAND,  is developing partnership arrangements with a diverse group of like minded individuals, organizations and nations.
We embrace diversity, creativity, initiative, momentum and invention.We embrace a mindset, a commons, a plan of action that seems well suited to our current condition and to our potential.
Our plan is generative, relying upon a simple core that evolves through participation. A plan changes nothing if it does not inspire action. Schedule a SKYPE at alan.yelsey1.

There is nothing like us under the sun. Be a pioneer. Be a founder. Be a part of something bold.

We have kept our heads down and have developed a new computer based visual language, a new large scale internet business model using cooperative alternative banking, and a new form of complex knowledge that can replace the antiquated methods we use now. We have bold ambitions, rigorous proofs, and lifelong commitments to invent a better way to operate our fragile world.

We are building an integrated cooperative enterprise that creates superior access to high value knowledge and communication; operates a hybrid economic system that delivers superior life enriching value and shared wealth; and provides software engines, consultancies, toolkits, unique products and services that revolutionize peer driven commerce.

Definitions of Corruption:
Dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery
Impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle
Decay; Decomposition
Inducement to wrong by improper or unlawful means (as bribery)
A departure from the original or from what is pure or correct
Take a deep breath and look all around you. Take an even deeper breath and quickly scan all of the information media you are accustomed to viewing. And finally, look back at your life-map of everything you have been told by anyone wearing the status hat of significant socio-economic power, every major institution on earth. Corruption is pervasive, invasive, endemic, epidemic. Of course, there are precious few exceptions to this observation.
If Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systemic Coherence are our baseline criteria, very little in our human centric world has not been corrupted. The extent of this enveloping fabric of corruption is such that we cannot even see it, it has become invisible, it fails to register in our consciousness. The very concept of corruption has itself become corrupted.
Honesty is different from Truth. Honesty is the accurate expression of one’s conscious and subconscious motives, objectives and best understandings. Truth, the pursuit of truth, is about the intense conscious effort to obtain all available knowledge and process it via logic and reason in order to obtain a viewing angle that represents proof based systemic coherence, including doubts and uncertainty. Principles are the lens one wears to view oneself and the world – Y Worlds has adopted the NETS lens which serves not only as principles but also as a guide to objectives and proof processes.
Shortly, we will announce how we plan to ignite Y Worlds and propel us toward an entirely different world, parallel to the existing world, uncorrupt and undeterred by the momentums of SLANT. We plan to begin to realize Y Worlds starting with a cooperative enterprise that will actively trade in knowledge and commerce, sharing value among its members, extracting wealth from the wealthy in the existing world to invest in a sustainable, beneficent CENTRO. We are now ready to take action. We encourage you to join us and act.

Here is our take on how to interpret the difference between tolerance and inclusiveness, between hate and love, between prejudice and equality, between gut and brain, between ideology and NETS, between dogma and lifelong learning, between faith and science, between conviction and proof, between doctrine and openness, between inheriting the past and inventing the future.
Listen to the voice
Watch the expression
Accurately extract their root objectives
Test your hypothesis against their actions and behaviors, especially inactions
Discover, educate, organize and advance

In today’s world news:
The leaders of Uganda and Brunei effectively made being gay illegal.
Close to half of American adults do not believe climate change is a critical issue while the oceans rise and climate changes.
Hundreds of girls are kidnapped to be sold and hundreds more murdered by a despot, while “honor” killings continue.
The leader of Russia is actively and violently taking over a weaker neighboring country.
The Supreme Court majority in a nation constructed on the principle of the separation of church and state (America) has pierced the separation by allowing majority empowered sectarian prayer before public meetings.
A billionaire owner of a sports teams claims he is not racist, while abhoring personal association with people of color.
US sports teams retain repugnant Indian Mascots, while media and fans remain silent.

Tolerance is formed from the word tolerate, which is a condescending look down upon someone or something. The word tolerance retains constructs of separation, superiority, negative judgement and worst of all, insincerity.
What we all are after is inclusiveness. Inclusiveness is the only bond that holds us all together, that guides our nurturing thoughts and instincts, that makes us care, really care, about others. Public schools are about inclusiveness. Vouchers and charter schools and private schools are about some, not all. We need all. Don’t accept anything less.
Y Worlds. Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems are our definition of inclusive.
