Hello Occupy group...
Here is my recommended List of 40 demands for the Occupy movement, including a 'Consent for Governance' statement, to address the problems and issues in current policy.
Occupy List of 40 Consent for Governance Statement
Consent for Governance by the People
"As acting citizens for country and union, sharing vision for Liberty and just government, We the People provide and grant consent for a United States government, responsible to the public and requiring assurances of fair process for such body to operate, to fulfill and ensure duties in accordance with principles of fair and justly reasoned governance, bound and created by public trust to establish and act in those interests, lighted by and acting within properly founded reasoning and judgment, to those ends.
In granting such right to governance, we require institute of oversight process, for the regulation of proper policy and protections against abuses, to ensure the public well-being and redress unjust laws, legal judgments, court orders, rulings, political process, procedures, ceremonies, appointments or any other mechanism blocking progress or fair governance by red tape or any type of institutional obstruction, inactivity, or exploitation of the political process by questionable interests.
Holding the United States government to principles to ensure and institute a more perfect Union, We the People deem responsibility for the public body being the extension and fulfillment of founded reason, to empower fair access and participation to the public, and to establish and operate with fair governance in Legislative, Executive, Justice, Defense, and Education to promote and protect the general Welfare and well-being, the Blessings of Liberty, and to provide for the Rights of Tolerance against unreasonable demands, bias, or interests.
To support these ends, we require the following 40 policies to be instituted:
Corporations would not be allowed to layoff employees during net profitable year earnings in order to increase stock margins or increase executive or management salary, stock, or bonus compensations.
CEOs or executive management during layoff periods would not be allowed any earnings or stock bonuses for 2 years, after any layoff incident of 50 employees or more, or until re-hire. After any incident of layoff of 50 employees or more, CEOs would not be allowed earnings from said company in any form or venue of more than $1,000,000 per annum for 2 years, excess proceeds would be held in leu to ensure employee retention or re-hiring of said employees, or until re-hire.
Stock holders that vote or advocate for predatory exploitation of workers, the public well-being or public privacy interests (or against the protection of said entities) would immediately forfeit their stock, and the proceeds would be held in leu to ensure pension, employee retention, r&d, charitable local donation or re-compensation for any relevant damage.
10% of corporate stock must be retained to ensure company pension and employee retention or layoff compensation if company fails. 10% of corporate profits must be retained to ensure company viability during any future times of low profit. 5% of corporate or company profits beyond $1 million dollars must be distributed to employees (no more than 10% of said distribution to executives). 5% of corporate profits beyond $1 million dollars must be distributed to benefit the surrounding or extended community and environment (excluding religious or medical research organizations). Any corporate earnings loss will be culled from executive wages or bonuses in excess beyond $200,000 in total, per executive. Corporate executive wages, bonuses or compensation cannot exceed $10 million dollars per year.
Corporations or companies cannot be purchased for the purpose of liquidating assets or employees, beyond bankruptcy proceedings.
Companies are not allowed breach of reasonable privacy to customers, the public, or employees for non-essential purposes or for profit, unless given specific permission by customer or user of service, and cannot provide incentives for such breach of privacy. Companies cannot include verbiage granting them breach of reasonable privacy to users of service, customers, or employees for non-essential purposes or for profit, in any agreement regarding general terms of service. Breach of reasonable privacy would be any collection of individual information non-essential to providing core services. Opt-out policies are prohibited.
During layoff periods of 50 employees or more, stock holders would not be allowed any stock valuation earnings above 5% or any bonuses for 1 year after any layoff incident of 50 employees or more, excess valuation would be held in leu to ensure employee retention or re-hiring of said employees, or until re-hire. Stock would not be allowed to be sold during layoff periods of 50 employees or more, for 6 months.
