the young. Raising them up to work with the hands and well as the mind and teaching them to work in communities, to establish
the worship of the Father, and to help bring about His Kingdom on Earth, and world peace and brotherhood.
10. We believe that any desire, thought, or act, which will injure one's self or another,

we believe it is our duty to live in Peace and Harmony with the entire Human Family. To strive to overcome all tendencies
of hate, jealousy, malice, conceit, envy, deceit, and all forms of physical, mental, emotonal, and moral weakness. To increase
knowledge of one's self, of life, and of nature; and to use this knowledge properly for selfimprovement; to work toward
spiritual developement of love, wisdom, peace, universal understanding, that we may be of greater service to God, our Country,
our community, and our Fellow Man

A certain rich man, being converted from the desires of earth, went about casting his money freely in the streets, and
in giving to whosoever asked him therefor.
11. And some gathered it up, and fed and clothed themselves;
others took of it, and went and got drunk, and became worse than before.
12. The measure of righteousness of that man's behavior was not in giving what he had to the poor, but in
the good and evil that came of it, being weighed, as to which outbalanced the other.
13. And where he lowered the grade of them that received this money, or where he lowered
a greater number than he raised, there his act of casting the
money away was a judgment against him.

Oahspe bible Book of Eskra 42:6; These Es'eans [Essenes] were, therefore,
a separate people, pledged to Jehovih, to have no king nor earth-ruler, save their rab'bahs. And they dwelt in communities
and families of tens and twenties and hundreds, holding all things in common...
Thomas Paine in his book Common Sense on pages 10-14 wrote "Government
by kings was first introduced into the world by the Heathens, from which the children of Israel copied the custom.
It was the most prosperous invention that was ever set on foot for the promotion of Idolatry...Monarchy is ranked in scripture
as one of the sins of the Jews...The children of Israel being oppressed by the Midianites, Gideon marched against them with
a small army, and victory, through the divine interposition, decided in his favor. The Jews, elate with success, and attributing
it to the generalship of Gideon, proposed making him a king, saying, Rule thou over us, thou ad thy son, and thy son's son
[hereditary succession monarchy]...Gideon in the piety of his soul replied, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son
rule over you, THE LORD SHALL RULE OVER YOU...About one hundred years after this, they fell again into the same error...But
the thing displeased Samuel when they said, Give us a king to judge us; and Samuel prayed unto the Lord, and the Lord said
unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee, for they have not rejected thee, but they
have REJECTED ME, THAT I SHOULD NOT REIGN OVER THEM...And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people, that asked
of him a king. And he said...and ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen, AND THE LORD
WILL NOT HEAR YOU IN THAT DAY...Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel, and they said, Nay, but we will
have a King over us, that we may be like all the nations...
Monarchy, political system based upon the undivided sovereignty or rule of a single person. The term applies to states in
which supreme authority is vested in the monarch, an individual ruler who functions as the head of state and who achieves
his or her position through heredity."
There are two types of monarchies still in existence. On one hand you have
an absolute monarchy e.g. Saudi Arabia,Qatar, Oman, UAE. This type of monarchy is one where the sovereign (King or Queen)
has, in theory, total power. The other is a constitutional monarchy e.g. UK, Norway, Spain, The Netherlands, Denmark, etc.
This is where the monarchy has legal and or constitutional limits on its power. It is
a symbolic role and does not interfere with the country’s affairs for the most part.
of Divinity Chapter I:
11. In the time of Fragapatti,
in the dawn of the cycle of Loo in heaven, Jehovih commanded the founding of an organic Congress for His God and Lords,
and His Lord Gods.
12. And Fragapatti thus created the organic body, and named it, the Diva, making God the Chief
thereof, with the title, Div, even as is known to this day in the sacred books of mortals.
13. Jehovih said: In the early days of a world I give the races
of man (on the earth) a despot to rule over them. But in time
after I give them representative governments with many voices, having a right to help make the laws. Even
so do I provide unto the hadan heavens. In the early days I provide a God who shall be dictator and governor in his own way.
But in after times I provide a
parliament in heaven,
wherein My God and My Lords shall jointly consult together in framing laws for angels and mortals. And these
shall be called Divan laws.
2. The Div was the chief, and the Lords and their officers comprised the
Divan Congress, ...
In modern politics and history, a parliament is a legislative body of government. Generally, a modern parliament has three functions: representing the electorate, making laws, and overseeing the government via hearings and inquiries. The term is similar to the idea of a senate, synod or congress, and is commonly used in countries that are current or former monarchies, a form of government with a monarch as the head. A congress is a formal meeting where people come together to discuss issues or questions. It often refers
to the legislative branch of a nation's government, such as the US Congress, but it can also refer to any important meeting
or official organization.

have often dreamed of escaping the tyranny of the State; some have sought to do so by seeking refuge in distant and uninhabited
lands where they could live in solitary hermitage or in small communities held together by the principle of voluntary association
and mutual aid. But historians know that such experiments seldom survive in peace for long; sooner or later the State finds
and confronts them with its instinctive will to violence, its mania for coercion rather than persuasion, for compulsion rather
than voluntarism. Such has been the fate of the Mormons and Mennonites, the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Amish people,
Historically, States do not dismantle willingly or easily. While
they can disintegrate with startling speed, as in Russia in 1917 or France in 1968, almost always new States arise to take
their place. The reason for this, I believe, is that men cannot bring themselves to believe in the practical feasibility of
a society in which perfect liberty, security of life and property, and law and justice can be attained without the coercive
violence of the State. Men have for so long been enslaved by the State that they cannot rid themselves of a Statist mentality.
The myth of the State as a necessary part of social reality constitutes the greatest single obstacle to the achievement of
a libertarian voluntarist society.
Yet the historian, if he but chooses to
look and report his findings, knows that many societies have functioned successfully without the existence of the State, its
coercive apparatus and monopoly of organized violence. It is my purpose here to present one example of such a society, one
that existed for more than a thousand years of recorded history, terminated only by the massive military efforts of a more
populous, wealthy and aggressive neighboring State. I will describe for you the millennial – long anarchic society of
Celtic Ireland – destroyed after a six-century struggle against the English State in the wake of the military victories,
confiscations and genocidal policies of successive English governments in the 17th century.

Oahspe Book Of Jehovih's Kingdon On Earth: Chapter XXVI:
2. Jehovih had said: A republic can not follow the highest Light; it followeth the majority. And a majority is,
and was, and ever shall be, the lesser light.
3. Therefore, a republic is not the all highest government; and, since only the All Highest can triumph in the end, behold, and interpret ye what shall
come to pass.
4. The C'chiefs said: But many understood not. Nevertheless, the Faithists had little in common with the Uzians.
The Faithists established a reciprocity betwen different colonies.
6. For, some were suited to agriculture and some to manufactures.
7. And they exchanged
produce, so there was neither buying nor selling between them.
8. And it came to pass also, that, as some of the colonies were situated to the south, where it was warm, and some
to the north, where it was cold, so the people went and sojourned
in any place suited unto them, continuing their membership wherever they went.
Now, thus it did come to pass, in Jehovih's kingdom on earth,
man was without a government, such as man's government.
10. And this was the next higher condition that came up after republics.
11. The angels of Jehovih, perceiving this was coming to pass, said unto the Faithists:
Bother not your heads much about passing new laws for the Uzians;
neither take ye any part in the government, whether it doth this or that.
many men shall rise up, saying: If the government would make
a law of peace; or, if the government would prohibit the traffic and the manufacture of this curse or that curse,--
14. But we say unto you, all these things shall fail.
Trust ye not in the ungodly to do a godlike matter.

the Peace Society shall become a farce; the Prohibitory Society shall be lost sight of.

41. And now, O Jehovih, that
this, Thy kingdom on earth, may be known and distinguished from
the habitations of the Uzians, we make this our solemn oath unto Thee:
42. We will not, now, nor forever,
make war, nor engage in war, nor take any part in war, for any God, nor Lord, nor Savior, nor country, nor king or other ruler
on earth; nor will we aid nor abet war in any way whatever.
43. Neither will we now, nor forever, eat fish nor flesh
of any creature Thou didst create alive.
44. And we swear unto Thee, Jehovih, in regard to these our babes, which Thou
hast given unto our keeping, to found Thy kingdom on earth, we will raise them up to abjure war, like unto this our oath unto
Thee, and to practice not the carnivorous habit belonging to the Uzians.
45. Neither will we use, nor permit to be used, in Shalam, any intoxicating drink, nor weed, nor root, nor gum, nor any
other drug, for the contamination of human flesh by intoxication or for stimulation unnaturally.

highest wisdom in the state, or in a community, is not with the majority, but with a small minority.
The highest wisdom, which is the highest light, should guide
the individual and the family and the community and the state.
31. Now, therefore, let us divide ourselves
into groups of tens.
32. And each group shall select its
wisest man, as speaker, and his title shall be Chief.
33. And let the chiefs be a group also, and they shall select a speaker, whose title shall be C'chief.
34. Let the business within the colony be divided into as many departments as there are groups, one to each.
let the united business of the colony, in its relations to the world, and to sister colonies, be in the care of the C'chief
and the other chiefs.
36. Now, behold, in the kingdoms
of heaven, when a matter is announced, requiring the Holy Council's action, each and all the members who desire, speak thereon,
giving their highest light.
37. And, after
that, the chief giveth his highest light, which is the decree.
38. So let it be with us.
39. And it shall be discovered in a short time who is the highest light,
not only of each group, but of all the groups.
40. And whosoever is chief, shall be held responsible for
the errors or shortness of his group; and whosoever is C'chief shall be held responsible for the shortness or errors of the
whole colony as such.
41. Who, then, knowing that what is bound on earth is also bound in heaven, is willing to bind
himself unto these heavenly laws for the sake of Jehovih's kingdom on earth?
