I. When in the Course of human events and affairs it becomes evident that an otherwise well intentioned people have become unaware and/ or insensitive to the pains, injuries, and suffering they are inflicting on their fellow Natural Persons, and of the unjust powers being exercised by their Government(s) in violation of its’ legitimate reason and purpose; it becomes necessary for the unconsidered and affected, the silenced and oppressed, Natural Persons to confer upon what is good, and peaceably restate and clarify the political premises that make up, or shall make up, the genome of their shared free political society.

II. We, the undersigned, Natural Persons of good conscience and concern, hold and affirm the following Truths to be Self-Evident and Unequivocal.

A. "The People" is herein the term used to affectionately refer to each Individual Natural Person in their human similarity, and shall not be misconstrued to mean a corporate body or collective; Without any exception, The People are explicitly affirmed to be Created equally and unalienably Sui Generis, Free, and Endowed with Natural Rights, herein referred to as their "Natural State"; By virtue of their Natural State The People are endowed with and in possession of honorable, unalienable, inalienable, enumerable, exercisable, equally weighted, and negative Rights, herein referred to as "Natural Rights"; These Natural Rights are herein referred to as "Negative" because they shall at all times and under all circumstances without exception provide immunity from and oblige inaction on the part of The People, enterprises of The People, the Body Politic, The State, the Constitutions and Governments of The State, and the Powers, Laws and Agencies arising therefrom, herein referred to as "Actors"; When there is a competition of Natural Rights, this competition shall be resolved in a manner that is advantageous or satisfactory to all affected Natural Rights involved, herein referred to as "Positive Sum"; The several Natural Persons having sufficient evidence of permanent common interest in and domiciled in a given jurisdiction are jointly, collectively, and together the sovereign populace, and herein referred to as the "Body Politic"; The Body Politic in taking any action in its' sovereign capacity shall be referred to as "The State"; The State acting by explicit consent of a two-thirds supermajority of adult members of its' Body Politic, or the Representatives thereof as the case may be, shall establish Constitution(s) and Government(s) in conformity with this Declaration structured by subsidiarity for the explicit and limited purposes of securing The People in their Natural State and Natural Rights in a Positive Sum manner and preserving the sovereignty of the Body Politic, such a Constitution and Government are herein referred to as "Just Government(s)"; Just Governments shall be structured in a manner that protects their integrity and facilitates their purposes, herein referred to as "Legitimate Structure(s)"; Just Government(s) shall give rise to powers, laws, and agencies which exclusively further the purpose of Just Governments, and are herein referred to as "Just Powers"; Therefore, in summary, The People in their Natural State are endowed with Natural Rights and these Natural Rights are Negative upon Actors and must be resolved in a Positive Sum manner when in competition with another Natural Right, The State establishes Just Governments to secure the Natural State of The People and preserve the sovereignty of the Body Politic with Legitimate Structures which give rise to Just Powers; in a word, this shall be referred to as "Liberty".

B. Natural Rights and Legitimate Structures include but are not limited to the following. The phrase "shall not be infringed", and variations thereof including the verb "To Infringe", shall mean that otherwise taking said action will fail to secure the Natural State and Natural Right(s) of The People.
