Another Inspiration

Last night my wife said she didn’t understand Transcendia. She said lots of people don’t understand me.
I have said over and over that there was a challenge to those of my generation to give our critics something better than what we complained about.
We were complaining about the US, which has a myth of freedom, equality, and meritocracy.
Many of us were attracted to anarchy and hedonism. As in any large group there were many who were simply against the Viet Nam war. This was reactionary. It was not revolutionary.
I had had a vision that I used as a touchstone.
I was inspired by the environment of the airport to build up the idea of a nation of airports. It was based as of utility on the idea that if there were a network of standardized ports operating according to the principles of the Declaration of Human Rights, safe for businesses to operate out of in every nation, economic disparities would be moderated.
As a pragmatist who admires William James, and then takes the word for its face value, I aim to build on what is shown as strong.
Port cities are strong. Airports give landlocked people opportunities for prosperity and power totally out of reach before the advent of the airplane. Everybody seems to know how to act on the airport.
A nation of airports operating according to best practices would be well positioned to take up where the UN leaves off. Even just to have Transcendian offices on all the international airports would help in certain instances such as when dictators of nations are causing unnecessary war because they are like trapped rats.
I communicated with Andre` Lewin who wrote the Points for Reinvention of the UN. For dictators whose administrations have run their courses, the airport can take them in and provide a sanctuary for them as Ambassador Lewin saw as needed and looked to Elba where Napoleon was ensconced. The fleeing dictators like Napoleon at the end is just one precept of points for the reinvention of the UN that Transcendia could take up.

About Russell Scott Day

I come from sailors and priests. My aim is to prevent apocalyptic riot, better known as nuclear war, when I was growing up. Creating a nation of airports will create the peace enough environment to prevent apocalyptic riot. I had a vision due to a period of boredom and bliss like the Aleph of Borges. That is the story I learned and was made up and happens.
