Oakland Rules

Post by NuclearRadio79 on Wed Oct 19, 2011 8:39 pm

It is possible that this topic might be THE most important topic here. However it has not been amply discussed.

We could propose a Constitutional Amendment requiring all officials of state, corporations or the media be held to the highest standards of truthfulness when providing official statements to the public, under Federal penalty of perjury. The FBI should be empowered with a Department of Accuracy in Statesmanship and Public Affairs, to hold accountable persons responsible for truthfulness in information to the public in matters of gravity, to include statesmanship, regulation of any kind, corporate affairs, particularly pertaining to public statements of profit or corporate affairs having an effect on the physical or financial well-being of the public at large.

We are compiling of grievances not rewriting the Constitution. So our solutions will need to fit within current laws.

We all own the media - the 1% have stolen it from us!

The way to tie this issue to OWS, (which is all about money), is to keep in mind that we, the People of the United States own the mediums on which the media propagate. Due to sheer corruption from the 1%, our government agencies charged with protecting this natural resource on behalf of the 99% have failed in their duties and have allowed media to become dominated by monopolistic corporations that are wholly unaccountable to the 99%. What we should simply be asking for is a return of our corrupted natural resources (i.e. the airwaves that we collectively own and rent out) from the current media corporations, and a reformation of the government agencies that rent out and regulate those natural resources. The grievance is against concentrated media power in the current monopolies, failure to regulate our natural resources in a manner beneficial to the people, failure to break up monopolies, etc. These are all within the current law.

This issue isn't that hard to reconcile with the One Demand: We want our power back from the 1%, and that includes the power to properly regulate and allocate our collective natural resources for the benefit of the people over for-profit corporations. Break up the media companies, regulate (limit) concentrated ownership, provide for public access to bandwidth across all mediums, etc. You can't regulate the messages, but if we have the right structure, the media will function effectively.

Respectfully,

Darin
