Infrequently Asked Questions
We have registered a party. When I say we, there is a small and growing core group of men and women who are involved. We are all rather skeptical of registering the party because we question the legitimacy of the whole system and the act of registering can be seen as bending down to their bogus authority. We have therefore created what we call a service position in the group for someone to be the official party skeptic. His/her job is to question everything we do in a healthy way. We are playing around with this and doing some unusual things.
At the moment we are being asked some interesting questions to which we are responding with equally interesting answers. We’ll see how it goes.
The current proposed name is simply ‘everyone’s party’. This is temporary though as is everything in life and everything about this experiment.
Membership of the party is automatic although opting out is available. At the moment there are over 7 billion members.
The experiment itself is the aim. We aim to remain open to what transpires.
We have some intentions though...
-To have as much fun as possible
- To facilitate creativity
- To wake people up to how we are being enslaved and facilitate freeing ourselves from that bondage, and in particular support those brave men and women who wish to remove themselves from the system.
It is not a party in the traditional sense. It’s really a fellowship of men and women. We have called it a party to fit into the establishment’s fictional requirements so that we can play their game in order that eventually we can play a completely different game. There is absolutely no hierarchy in this fellowship, unlike traditional parties.
With any good experiment, certain variables are set and then the results are observed. There is openness to whatever occurs. Certain types of experiments, especially this one, involve course correction as the experiment develops. Some would say that we are actually involved in a social experiment right now – we are the guinea pigs. We think it may be time to change the parameters of the experiment and base it on love rather than ego.
This is not about getting into power. The problem, as many have observed, is the system itself. So getting into power isn’t possible at the moment. The real power seems to lie with those who control the politicians – those behind the scenes. So in fact at the moment, politicians get into office. This experiment is about changing the conversation and questioning the pillars of the system itself. It is also about offering completely different approaches to the way we choose to live together. As opposed to almost identical approaches of mainstream political parties.
Yes and no. Everyone in the party will be a leader. A leader by example. A leader of themselves. If this fellowship is about experiencing freedom, is not freedom of thought a must? Therefore, nobody will be able to control the thoughts of another and there will be no established policies for the party/fellowship. Instead, each group will be autonomous.
This innovation is probably one of the most significant. The men and women in the fellowship will NOT represent anyone. Do any politicians represent anyone or any group? Currently, the politicians pretend that they represent the men and women. But how is this possible? Which men and women do they represent?
Here in the UK, they often have a minority percentage of the votes anyway. Are they even representing them? How do they know what each one needs/wants? What about the rest? Can we even rely on voters to vote for the most moral and wise policies?
Furthermore, the MEN AND WOMEN WHO CALL THEMSELVES GOVERNMENT in the UK, affect humans all over the earth as well as other life forms. Why should the men and women in London or Bournemouth determine what happens to men and women in Manila or Tripoli?
For this reason, one of the unique and exciting innovations of this ‘party’ is that the intention will be for fellows to aim to make their decisions, based on surrendering to something greater than their egos. Or in other words, the only thing that we are attempting to (re)present is Love, whatever that is to each of us.
If different ideas emerge, we meditate on the question 'what would love do?', and then come to consensus.
How we relate to money will be very much a part of the experiment. We will certainly not be accepting donations from Corporations! There may be a limit on what participants can contribute and any contribution, no matter how large or small, will give no extra weight to any member's voting power.
Once members die, they can leave as much money as they want to the fellowship because they won’t be around to corrupt it! Money could be needed for rent of meeting rooms, registration of candidates in elections, possibly some small admin cost and some web hosting costs as well as compensating participants for their time if they need that. Then, once it gets running and into office, we’ll need to buy some nice big fancy cars for them. It’s only right!
There are many fundamental differences some of which will be covered in other responses. One of them is the attempt to disempower the ego and let something higher into the decisions about how we live together on this wonderful planet. For this to happen, we will be exploring language and culture too. We will focus some of our energies on our internal world in order to affect our external experience.
There will be no representatives of this fellowship. Only members. One member will be proposed by at least 2 others to be a spokesperson for the group. The personality of this man/woman is not important, because they will simply deliver what was agreed by the group.
There could be lots of small groups, with the freedom of groups to set upper and lower limits of group size.
A non-hierarchical structure is much harder to infiltrate. The infiltrating influence will have to corrupt the majority of members of each local fellowship because the secretary of the fellowship is a trusted servant to the group and the group are trusted servants of the principles so to speak.
At the root, it could be summed up as an intention of doing no harm and causing no loss. But it is also more than that. The principles include:
Honesty, Hope, Faith, Courage, Integrity, Humour, Willingness Humility Self-discipline, Love for others, Perseverance, Self- Awareness, Service, Unity, Trust, Autonomy, Purpose, Solidarity, Responsibility, Fellowship, Neutrality, Anonymity and Spirituality.
The sort that could better be described as intentions. The word policies has been used by politicians to say they're going to do something and very often they've not done it. So we use the term loosely.
And truly - how can anyone claim to know for sure how to run millions of people’s lives?
We put forward lots of ideas for what we call 'what ifs' in different areas. Our purpose is not to get into office but to change the conversation. It is far less about what to do than about how to be.
It is about encouraging all of us to use our imagination, transcending the limits put on it by our insane conditioning. (Yes, INSANE conditioning. All of us as far as I know. Please email us if you believe that you have not been subject to insane conditioning).
