Kid and car large

The Nations of Sanity is a movement that is attempting to rally people together under a banner of simple sanity in the hope of saving the world from the criminal insanity that currently engulfs and rules over every nation on this planet. 
The aim is to unite people on a common ground of basic principles, based on a universal morality that most, if not all, rational people can agree on.

Our assertion is that the only way to create a free society with equal rights for all is to establish the NAP (Non Aggression Principle) as the law, through our 3 part peace agreement.

It is built on a consistent and undeniable moral foundation that ignore the finer ideals that divide so many people and attempts to unite us on a basic ethos of understanding and agreement that is characterised here as simple sanity.  
It is built on a more objective and universally agreeable moral foundation characterised by the Non Aggression Principle.

The idea is to cut through the various divisions that separate people with a universally unifying foundation, a common ground of basic objective morality. We are essentially saying that if we cannot agree on the finer details then lets at least agree on the basics so we can have sane society, and then go from there.

This idea comes from the impasse that is so often reached when discussing the state of society and the ways in which things need to change.  This usually involves one of the following situations.
1. Despite agreeing on much of what is wrong with the current system, there is still debate over what is actually causing the injustices.
Most disagreements on this front come from an assortment of ignorance and misunderstandings that neither side can resolve because their division has created an intellectual conflict that prevents them from conferring or even empathising with opposing arguments.

2. Where both sides of a debate are in full agreement that certain injustices are wrong and certain criminality needs to end, even agreeing on much of the causal factors, yet have very different and sometimes even opposing positions on the solutions, both in respect to what the solution is and how to go about implementing it.
This is in part fuelled by disagreement over the root causes but even with out that conflict ideological differences send people on very different paths in their quest for positive change.

3. The final and often most common impasse comes from the acceptance of the current situation which is reinforced by the belief that this is pretty much as good as it gets.
This common point of impasse comes from the ethos that “no system is perfect”, which is a fair comment as a standalone statement, but when used to excuse apathy it serves as fuel for the acceptance of the status quo and becomes an ally to oppression.

No system is perfect but perfection is not the demand we make, nor is it the demand that we propose all good people of this world unite to make.
Forget perfection, we just want sanity.
We are not demanding a perfect society, just a free and sane one will be sufficient.

It is not surprising that, even among people who are united in their desire for change, there is still massive disagreement regarding the finer details of such change, how to achieve it and what precisely we want to achieve.
This is where the Nations of Sanity come in.

What the Nations of Sanity propose is that rather than wasting precious time squabbling over finer ideals that are based on individual ideology and personal preferences we should be rallying all the good people together on a common ground of so called “common sense”, “common decency” and a logical, rational and sane approach to societal cohesion.
Because simple ideals and basic principles of right and wrong are far more universal than the ruling class would want us to believe.

The sad irony about terms like common sense and common decency is that such qualities no longer appear to be “common”. Perhaps "rare sense" and "rare decency" would be more appropriate terms.
If such qualities are in fact common they are certainly not in any way governing and while they may be adopted by the majority of the powerless populations of the various nations around the world they unfortunately do not in anyway define the societies we live in.

So the Nations of Sanity proposes that we replace the current rule of criminality and insanity with a simple and sane approach to society. A simple but consistent approach to law and freedom, rights and obligations.

We currently accept laws that defy morality, systems that defy logic and societies that are nothing but extensions and continuations of the criminal oppression, tyranny and slavery that many of us pretend is now consigned to the pages of history. This needs to stop and we need to wake up.
No longer can we allow criminality to rule over us and, regardless of what propaganda is used to divide us, we need to get together and put an end to the madness.
We must wake up to the reality of the real situation, we need to come together in agreement over the fundamental changes that are required, and we need to accept that the system we currently allow to rule over us is not sane or just or morally consistent in any way.

Perhaps the acceptance that the current system is fundamentally wrong is still something that needs to be encouraged as it does not yet appear to represent the view of the majority.
But even if and when this realisation does become accepted by a majority of the people we still need to agree on what needs to be done about it.

Many ideas have been put forward as to what kind of society we can and should pursue, though a clear path from here to there is seldom defined with any level of clarity or detail.
Even when looking at the “alternative” movements, that preach change, there is such a lack of unity and agreement it seems that real change will never come.

But there is a common ground.
The Nations of Sanity is built on the premise that there is a common ground that can redefine society.
As is alluded to in the name, this common ground is so basic, simple and fundamentally logical that the most appropriate name for such a revolutionary proposal is “sanity”. That is what we are fighting for, sanity.

We are not proposing any kind of “perfect” system, or any kind of idealistic utopia, because we understand that no such utopia can exist for all people, simply because people do not all share the same vision of what utopia would really look like and actually involve.
We all have our own personal preferences and tastes. People are different and most of us agree that such diversity is good because the world would be pretty boring if we all thought and acted the same.
It is diversity of thought and personality, of skills and dreams, of how we all look and act that is part of the richness of life.
Such diversity should be embraced and no laws or societal rules should infringe on anyone’s individuality or attempt to uniform the human race into some standardised version of itself. Division is inevitable and is neither something we can or should change.
But division should not apply to a basic sense of sanity. It should not apply to such a basic level of morality.
We can embrace a wide variety of diverse ways of life if we can unite on the fundamental rules of life.

“Every being in the universe knows the difference between right and wrong” – Prot (a fictional alien from the novel K-Pax)

Do we all know right from wrong? On a basic level can we all agree on a fundamental morality?
Despite the societies and systems we live in suggesting that we can’t and don’t, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that most, if not all, of us do know the fundamental difference between right and wrong, at least on a very basic and fundamental level.

If we can all agree on that fundamental morality then we should implement that as our basic law of society.
If we can all agree on what we call common sense and common decency then we should make effort to restore such qualities to a more common status. Not only to remove the irony of calling such apparently rare qualities “common”, but also to define our societal structure under this universally agreeable ethos.

We have no need to quarrel over such basic and simple principles. The Non Aggression Principle, as defined by the Nations Of Sanity, is simply about not causing harm or loss to another. It is really that simple and in such simplistic form it seems indisputable that such a principle is both logicallly and morally consistent.
There is no reason why we cannot replace our current societies with a new system that is built on a solid foundation that clearly defines this simple agreement that all people should be free to pursue happiness and that the only condition to this freedom, the only limit to this freedom, the only law of any land and the only rule to abide by, is the very simple, logical and morally consistent rule that we must do no harm to others.
That is the only condition to our freedom, the only law we must adhere to. We must not cause or threaten harm or loss to another. Outside of that you can be completely free.

It may sound almost child like in its simplicity, but this is only because such a simple and basic ethos is nothing more than a sane and universally agreeable ideal that even a small child could easily understand and accept.
It is only through such childlike simplicity that we will bring real change to such a complicated world.

We are allowing unimaginable horror and suffering to engulf this planet because of our failure to agree on these simple principles and unite under them.
We are allowing criminality and insanity to rule over us and it is way past time that we put an end to this madness before it is too late.

We don’t have to agree on every higher ideal, nor is it reasonable to expect us to ever be able to. But we do have to come together to agree on a basic ethos of simple sanity.
There are so many criminal acts committed (that are not criminalised) which so few of us agree with or support. Yet we find ourselves powerless, even as a numerical majority, to stop the madness.
But superior numbers do not count for much among a divided people and the simple solutions will continue to evade us if we insist on overcomplicating what should be a very basic foundation of logically and morally sound law.
Only together can we truly change this world and only through a united morality, built on a common ground of sanity, can we truly come together to make this happen.
