regular progressional periods (say, every 500 new members, we have a
review of changes that need to be made).
We definitely need a modification to this "Constitution" to alot the
following (not necessarily correct wording):
During the ongoing drafting of our membership agreement, we will
review the agreement and vote to modify the agreement, whenever we
reach a point of 500 new members having joined since the last
amendment meeting. Members can continue their original desire to
enter into this agreement via e-mail or signed letter. (etc etc).
It is of utmost importance that members who join down the line have
some say so in entering ideas for amendment or additions to the
membership agreement, as new people will bring new ideas. I do have
to say that the un-libertarian passages that we're looking at changes
did originally make me think twice about the FSP, because it sounded
like it would be pro-freedom initially, and cave in to government's
normal tyrannical progression that we've all witnessed.
The changes set forth in recent days makes a big step in limiting the
FSP's government's growth, but I don't think it is enough. We need
more severe and strong wording limiting the FSP's government's
powers, as well as strict wording that can't be "interpreted" down
the line, maybe even wording saying "The words and beliefs contained
in this document are not to be interpreted by anyone in the future.
When there are doubts, the rights shall be granted to the
individual." etc etc.
