Sovereignty - understanding it's role and your ability to use it.

Have you noticed the increasing encroachment a military mindset in our police departments ?
http://www.youtube.co... Does it bother you on some level to see citizens trying exercise their 1st Amendment right to assemble in peaceful protest , allowed to do so only in small "free speech zones " or worse yet being gassed and beaten ?
http://www.youtube.co...
http://www.youtube.co... Do you think that responsible adults should have the option of arming themselves to protect the people that they love from violent offenders?
http://www.youtube.co...
http://www.youtube.co... How do you feel when you want to fly somewhere but to do so you give up your dignity as you are to forced remove your shoes , have your personal items searched then swabbed in fine detail while naked body scanners photograph your spouse and children ( digital records kept and viewed by questionable strangers ), AND you run the risk of being branded a terrorist if you resist ?

http://www.philly.com... When was the last time that you were compelled to explain who you are (with paperwork) , where you've been , where you're going , with whom and why you are where you are to a dominant person in uniform with a gun ?
http://www.youtube.co... At this radiant meetup , we will share an easy to understand primer on Natural Law and how the Constitution of the United States of America has enshrined so much of Natural Law in order to protect it for you and your family. We will take a very sobering look at the tightening surveillance grid , Internet and phone monitoring technology , the erosion of 1st, 2nd , 4th . 5th , 6th, 8th and 10th Constitutional Amendments. We will seek to understand the depth of data mining and it's role in our lives. Options for peaceful resistance to these dynamics will be laid out. There will be a few very intelligent speakers sharing powerfully simple legal solutions for dealing with individuals charged with doing the local , county , state and federal government's business. As a matter of course , we will keep our personal politics to ourselves , coming together in the spirit of
Liberty and Justice for ALL . Learning ways to pursue happiness and keep the government in it's place is nothing new , rather it has gone on for thousands of years. Can you think of individuals that have taught us peaceful resistance to tyranny in the past ? They are the inspiration for this night's Survive and Thrive gathering. Understanding the true power that you possess is an important key to the forward motion of our society. You and the others that you touch your life truly matter. This group is based in the Light of Love. You are an expression of pure consciousness incarnated. Your vehicle of experience and expression is your body and it is your property. All law is property law. Your attention is all that you truly have to give in this life. If you want to be a part of the planning team on this topic , contact Fernando ASAP.

    Wow. I was blown away. Mark broke down natural law and explained how through love is good/order and how acting through fear leads to chaos/evil. It sounds simple but how often do I walk in fear and expect order or something good to happen. He stated that if you want to live in love/good/order and work with natural law you have to have your thoughts, emotions and actions in alignment. The way it was presented opened my eyes to think that natural law isn't just the law in which we interact with others but it is the basis of everything and how we interact with ourselves. If we can get everyone understanding natural law, I think change would be inevitable. It also reminded me that life is about integrity and if you want to stand for something, do it all the way, thoughts, emotions and actions otherwise disharmony will prevail in your life. This is a great group with some of the best people I ever met. I highly encourage anyone interested in this meetup, to come on out.

    This topic, albeit notably controversial, brought an important subject into the light; one which weighs heavily on myself. I appreciate the time that went into this well crafted and articulated presentation and, despite offending a few people that couldn't get past their own egos, I felt that overall the message was well received by the group. This gives me hope that a resistance is forming, and hope this encourages future discussions on the subject.

    These meetups are only getting better. The collaboration & merging of Passio's work into survive & thrive was monumental. Fernando's organization & presentation skills are nothing short of professional, running a tight ship & keeping time with a handfull of speakers. The groups topics are all encompassing, continuously evolving, & reaching into every area of our existence. As always, an invaluable experience.

    This was an excellent gathering. Each speaker put forward a great deal of information laced with dynamic concepts, philosophies, and spiritual/emotional energy.
    Mark Passio's presentation was particularly well-constructed and impassioned. His path toward understanding the true essence of natural law was compelling and it set the stage for the night.
    My one criticism would be the lack of a sufficient counterbalance for the right-brained lean of the conversation.. not enough room to explain...

    Excellant. I learned about the left & right brain in 12th grade but my teacher missed the imporant parts I learned here. Like the whole force & violience break down. Also the way word meanings were brought out like what arest & represent really mean. I wish more was discussed on the militia like how the militia act of 1791 was subvert in 1903 when the natural guard was created or how the militia been used threwout US history like the whishy rebellion & the Detriot during the war of 1812. It was a long night but worth it.

    My best experience at a Survive And Thrive to date. What a great crowd turned out! The people of the world are ready for this information. The Universe is spoken into existence, so let's continue to put the Truth out there. Thanks to Fernando for inviting me to be a part of this event. Thanks to Nick Carrangi, Jerry Hartman, and Fernando for doing a great job in the preparation and implementation of this meetup. And thanks to all who attended with open minds and hearts. Great job all around!

    May be the best one yet. In my opinion. My friends Eric and Howard also were inspired by the Energy of the Group and the speakers. Very professional presentations.

    Well this was a step away from canning food and storing of water to be sure. Mark Passio gave a detailed breakdown of Natural Law for beginners which was drawn from texts that have been around for thousands of years. Nick Carangi and Jerry Hartman did a great job laying out modern legal terms and techniques for challenging the encroachment of uneducated agents of the government. Jerry with his 30 + years of Army , Marine and Police experience was invaluable given his perspective and advice. Nick brought case law to the people in an easier to digest format. The forms of resistance were divided into soft ( boycotts , infowars , political activism) and hard ( ignoring licensure, harassment and videotaping of public servants as they break the law, judicious use of entheogenic substances for mind expansion and of course the importance of maintaining the People's right to keep and bear arms along with the vital role of Militia) Slave rebellions from history were cited. I had a great time.

    very well planned and presented by the group leaders, these people have our best interests in mind and are dedicated in what they believe in, even if eveyone does not agree with what is presented, I feel it is all "food for thought" and one can further research or not. I for one always learn frm this group and am open to other oponions Thank you for your effort, it is much appreciated.

    It appears impossible to give a meetup less than one star. Have you ever listened to a fellow speak on, oh, just about any subject, and he suddenly tells you that anyone who disagrees with him is mind controlled by the Illuminati? Then you realize that he's sort of making up new definitions for words and stuff? What does this have to do with survival? It's simple. Identifying mentally ill people and avoiding them is a survival skill all it's own, and too many of you were clearly agreeing with the guy on stage. Liberties makes a great corned beef sandwich, guys, but not good enough to get me to stay for MOTSS. Fernando. arrange to get my flashlight mount/grip back to me. I will probably continue listing stuff on the barter page, but I may be more circumspect as to who I trade with. The ladies with the water purifying bottles who were talking about 'balancing frequencies', for example, are a bit too strange for me. Loved the crystals! Pity they won't DO anything.

    Chatter, commerce and story sharing will be saved for socializing after the main body of info has been shared. Please remember to order food and drink BEFORE the meetup at the bar downstairs. Please remember that this meetup is apolitical and non theistic , however these topics will be touched upon in an inclusive and respectful manner during the the course of our presentation.

    November 23, 2010

  • FERNANDO ANTONIO S.

    Bring a pen and notepad for this one. Also there will be ZERO TOLERANCE for interrupting and sidetracking comments. Questions and relevant comments will be held until the end of each segment. This is in direct response to the overwhelming amount of input that I have received from the membership.

    Yet another planning meeting with the other organizers of this upcoming meetup on the 28th. It will run from 5:30 until 8:30 pm on 11/28/10. This will be one of the most intense and most polished presentations that we have ever done. The flow of info has been painstakingly arranged to reach the greatest number of people on the deepest levels.

    November 23, 2010

  • FERNANDO ANTONIO S.

    If you plan to attend , please view the embedded videos that are placed throughout the meetup description beforehand. There is a team of well informed individuals putting a lot of time and effort into the simple yet powerful execution of this particular meetup. Your viewing of the videos ahead of time will help the whole group to move forward at a rapid pace and deal with the subject matter.
