Communitarian Councils

by Niki Raapana, revised April 2, 2004

Ogden City: All About Councils.

Appointed councils are the backbone of communitarian societies. Communitarian councils are composed of bureaucrats, non-profit organizations, selected elected representatives (who tow the party line), corporations, foundations, banks, businesses, police, and facilitators. Unlike the former American system of government which only allowed elected representatives to write laws and run the government, the communitarian system uses unelected "advisory councils" to create programs where new laws can be inserted without the knowledge of an informed, voting populace. Even as the communitarians describe the new process as a way to include more citizens in direct governance, the appointed council process eliminates informed citizen participation or control over government actions. Only citizens who agree with the plans are allowed to participate, yet the more moral communitarians describe their new process as "participatory democracy."

Based on the Soviet and Chinese models for governance, councils will replace all forms of government, in every country in the world, by 2021. The plan originated with the United Nations, it's called UN Local Agenda 21. Every country in the world has a plan to rebuild its society under Marxist ideology.

There are literally thousands of communitarian councils making policy for the future. For a simple overview of how these councils are overturning the Constitution of the United States, see our new chart Chain of Command and Rule of Law.

For a localized version of how communitarian councils specifically affect the United States, see our Community Developments in Washakie County, WY. For how they use the plans and their new citizen action councils to change American law, go to Neighborhood Plans.

Anarchism, socialism and freedom , From Workers Solidarity <../ws92.html> No36, 1992. "In the new economic order the workers of the world will own and share all the wealth they produce. Decisions will be made through workplace and community councils which will be federated at all levels and centrally co-ordinated. Thus political power will not be organised in a hierarchical manner, where a central government tells everyone else what to do."

Interactive proposals, ideas and activities for democratic strengthening of the UN system of global governance: (3) A UN CITIZENS' ASSEMBLY, by Dr. Harry H. Lerner, CAMDUN's UN Representative and President of the Communications Coordination Committee for the United Nations (CCC/UN) 301 East 45th Street, New York, NY 10017, USA. "The "Dynamics of Democracy--Local to Global" flow-chart below is a diagrammatic description of a permanent process of community-level NGO and CBO (Community-based organization) coordination for cooperative planning and problem-solving via monthly meetings of organizational representatives, computer networking, bio-regional coalition-building and public education on the linkage between local and global issues and strategies. One unifying aim and ongoing project of such community councils is participation in the biennial nomination and popular election of, as well as continuing communication with, delegates to the proposed United Nations Citizens (Peoples') Assembly, each representing their area's residents as global inhabitants, as well as national citizens. The resulting UN body would number under 600 delegates, on a proportionally equitable population basis. This plan involves a minimum of 1 delegate per nation plus the square root of the millions of its population. (16=U.S.; 26=India; 32=China.)"

Activists descend on D.C. to push for Wye funding, by MICHAEL SHAPIRO, Jewish Telegraphic Agency. This is also a wonderful explanation of how the Jewish lobby works in D.C. "The job of the Jewish community is "to condition the environment in Washington" so that the Wye money will be included "when the president and the Congress are sitting around the table" looking for a legislative vehicle to fund the special aid package, said Martin Raffel, associate executive vice chairman for the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the umbrella group of local community relations councils. Raffel said officials at community councils across the country were urging members of their local communities to urge their lawmakers to support the Wye aid."

Institutional Environment, Community Government, and Corporate Governance: Understanding China's Township-Village Enterprises, No 59 in William Davidson Institute Working Papers Series from William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan Business School , by Jiahua Che and Yingyi Qian. "Abstract: We study China's township-village enterprises (TVES) from an organizational perspective with a focus on governance. Unlike most previous studies, we interpret the firm boundaries of TVEs at the community level rather than the enterprise level. From this perspective, we analyze the central role that community governments play in TVE governance as an organizational response to the imperfect institutional environment of both state and market. Specifically, we show that the community government's involvement in TVEs helps overcome the problems of state predation and under-financing of private enterprises. We also explain why TVE governance leads to harder budget constraints than state-owned enterprises. "
