THE 10 BASIC EARTHLY HUMAN FREEDOMS
1. FREEDOM FROM BEING IN ECONOMIC WANT.
Every man has a right to be free from economic want of survival, from the birth until old age, regardless of working conditions. Every man is entitled equally to the cultural heritage of knowledge, of methods for health therapies, of goods services and technological achievements for survival (food, clothing, health care, education, house, transport, etc.). This of course means the basic survival allowance at all ages.
No economic oligarchy or those that “have” have any right to manipulate the majority and tose that “do not have” through the need of survival.
2. FREEDOM FROM CRIMES WARS AND INJUSTICE.
Not all people have good intentions for their fellowmen, and society, and thus there exist crime. Unfortunately economic inequalities create crimes. It must be tried through political and social institutions (taxes, benefits, etc.) not only reduced economic inequalities but create a system of essential and not only formal bureaucratic justice that protects every citizen or groups of citizens from injustice and crime. This includes the military defense against external enemy and criminal invasions.
3. FREEDOM OF THE HUMANS FROM THE VIOLENCE OF NATURE and those of the ways of natural life which are not in accordance with human soul consciousness and human spirit.
The cycle of blood and death, from animal to animal for food survival is something that for millennia man has tries to escape, and to shift from the jungle to a human society with mutual respect human rules, and laws with positive empathy, mercy, compassion, etc. This violence may still indirectly continue i in society, but to the extent that society is not a jungle, this means also that it is evolved. Man is looking iside him in order to find the way of mental, spiritual and cultural development and not necessarily in the ways of the visible biological life.
4. FREEDOM FROM ILLNESSES AND ARTIFICIAL GENETIC MANIPULATION.
Culture and psychic and scientific knowledge normally , develops so that increasingly releases each person from death and disease. It can not be accepted anywhere a hidden oligarchic scientific, genetic manipulationof the masses , in the past, present or future, of the human civilization from hidden groups, to another human civilization or society, (e.g. artificial viruses, falsification of DNA, artificial diseases and biological weapons, etc.) so as to exercise control, servitude, biological degradation, and manipulation.
5. FREEDOM OF THE SEX, COUPLES LOVE AND PARENTAL LOVE FROM violence, indirect slavery, envy, malignancy, lies, deceit, hypocrisy, manipulation and ulterior motives.
Love is a paramount experience, and must be protected.
The man should be morally and emotionally free.
6. MORAL AND EMOTIONAL FREEDOM.
There is no more dangerous and insidious slavery of man by that from his manipulation by his emotions, desires and his weaknesses. .The emotional and moral world and how each person feels for himself, his actions and choices, that does not infringe the freedom of other people, it is perfectly within the individual's freedom of will, and not subject to control by others without mutual consent . Nor is it legitimate a direct or indirect moral emotional manipulation of the individual.
7. FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND CREATIVITY.
People should have the freedom of speech, oral and written, and the creative freedom of artistic expression, provided they do not violate the freedom of other people. This freedom is also directly correlated with cognitive and intellectual freedom.
8. COGNITIVE AND INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM.
No minority organization either with good or evil purposes has no right to hide from humanity, evidence from the human history, or of the history of life on earth, or observational results of natural phenomena, experimental results, or data related to the morphology of the planet internally or externally , or of other celestial bodies. Data on the knowledge of man, life, and physical reality, should not be hidden in order to retain the ignorance of the masses for easier manipulation and servitude, or for use of hidden knowledge at the expense of the many. Prohibiting research and knowledge, with different excuses is unacceptable. But also this knowledge and technology must not to be use against humans, or the life on the planet itself that humanity resides.
9. POLITICAL-SOCIAL FREEDOM OF (DIRECT) DEMOCRATIC SELF-GOVERNMENT.
Societies have the inalienable right to social democratic political self-governance. It is known that the most perfect form of democracy is direct democracy, which in today's society of information and the internet, is easily feasible.
Forms of hidden oligarchies, whether of financial, or of technological nature, or other form of power that consider humanity being of two speeds, is incompatible with this principle. Humanity should not be a 2-speed civilization ie a split in to a) to the masses who have to stay in ignorance, underdevelopment, and defective, without true freedom but a fraudulently imposed illusion of freedom, and b) in a tiny minority with abundance of issued money and high hidden technology, which is not a product of discoveries of the mankind, and that this minority secretly seeks to despise, dominate, manipulate and oppress as a parasite a "sinful" majority. Cultures with such polarization, it seems to have a low rate of evolution and are usually doomed to periodic partial or total self-destruction.
10. SPIRITUAL AND METAPHYSICAL FREEDOM.
Man should be free from spiritual and metaphysical systematic control and alienation and must seek the moral and spiritual truth and development within him and the humanity that he lives.
We need to seek the creation of ourself, as perception and experience, inside us and inside the human society we are living.
Not everything from the teaches of the different religions are lies or worthless, but it should be understood that religions are not the monopoly of any source of morality and virtue, and every metaphysical superiority.
Nor should religions become the vehicle, of oligarchic, moral and spiritual manipulation of the masses (violating religious freedom principles and freedom of the will, etc.) or indirect influence for such respective finally manipulation of the masses by social, non-religious hidden or not, authority minorities, and oligarchies.

114. Power exists so as to serve the (immortal) human soul and its evolution. Power is not a goal by itself.
SOCIAL POWER IS NOT A GOAL BY ITSELF. SOCIAL POWER EXISTS SO AS TO SERVE THE (IMMORTAL) HUMAN SOUL AND ITS EVOLUTION
We may have to remind to ourselves, in this economic crisis, the basic operating principles of the current societies.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF THE CURRENT HUMAN SOCIETIES
"The reality of the experience of life, is based on a system of spiritual and perhaps subconscious (implicit) or explicit beliefs. Changing these beliefs will result in changing our reality and changing our fate. "
1) THE PRINCIPLE OF THE FREEDOMS OF THE INDIVIDUAL
This principle is crucial, as it determines that the society is to function without violating civil liberties. The seven basic personal freedoms are
1.1) The spiritual freedom (freedom of religion)
1.2) H freedom of political decision (Democracy, or rather direct-democracy)
1.3) The freedom of he creative-expressions (freedom of speech)
1.4) The moral freedom (freedom from fear)
1.5) Economic freedom (freedom from want)
1.6) The physical freedom (actions, activities).
1.7) The freedom of private property (having).
(Here Roosevelt is stating 4 of the essential freedoms
2) THE PRINCIPLE OF (IN)EQUALITY
Because of 7th individual freedom of private property, it is necessary the use of some form of money (not necessarily banking money). It is the nature of money and of the free market to create economic inequalities. If there was no private property, then we would not need to use some form of money and the economic and living standards inequalities would not be inevitable. Only political power , especially direct democracy can tame and reduce economic inequalities. Not the oligarchic economic power itself. Inequalities in society (economic, authoritarian, other social power etc.) is a source of misery, unhappiness, crime, lack of trust, mental illness, etc. The current social inequalities are not identical with the actual psychic meritocracy. A society with many inequalities has slower evolution and is a less advanced civilization, compared to a society with fewer inequalities. E.g. the killing capacity inequalities for survival in the jungle is a system of most slow collective evolution. From this principle it follows, that a monarchical or oligarchic society evolves more slowly than a democratic society. And at least for this reason democracy is preferred. Money and the economic power, can not unite people and bring prosperity, because it is in the nature of money to create inequalities. The political power, particularly of direct democracy can tame and control the economic inequalities with laws and institutions and bring more justice. The principle of equality applies also on to that all citizens are equal as far as the laws are concerned.
3) PRINCIPLE OF SOLIDARITY-BROTHERHOOD
This principle suggests that the primary treatment of each of our fellow man is positive and not negative. The morality of mercy, compassion, and positive empathy is a key element, creating equality and the ability to combine up individual talents into a collective civilization of the society, so that conversely each person can benefit at maximum from the society.
4) THE PRINCIPLE OF THE SOCIAL POWERS AND THEIR PRIORITIES.
The power is not only the political power i.e. the legislative and the executive, but there are very significant other powers, such as economic (private sector), military, religious, and the authorities of the function of the state (public authorities, and services, justice, police, etc. ). To these we can add the more impersonal, like th power of science and technology.
Furthermore we may distinguish the powers to
1) From people to people
2) From people in inorganic physical reality.
Based on the principle of equality, the second type of power is ore appropriate and ideal for the humans compared with first type.
The powers have priorities and reversing these priorities can and has became a source of misery , unhappiness and crimes. E.g. The economic power (the private sector) should not take precedence and override the political power, or the political power to succumb and bend to the oligarchic economic power. Political power has the top priority among all. Money and the economic power, can not unite people and bring prosperity, because it is in the nature of money to create inequalities. The political power, particularly that of the direct democracy can tame and control the economic inequalities with laws and institutions and bring more justice.
BUT every form of power, and the political also, exists so as to serve the human (immortal) soul and its evolution. Power is not an end in itself.
5) THE PRINCIPLE OF CONSISTENCY (Justice, education etc.)
Society would be neither serious nor viable, if it did not practice the principle of consistency. This means does not mean only that law should be enforced with justice. E.g. in education, the principle of consistency means that, all the knowledge that is essential and crucial for the survival of the civilization, must pass across the totality of the new generation. Not only the basic and elementary knowledge while the rest and more advanced to a minority only. This maximizes survivability and the successful continuation of the civilization.
6) THE PRINCIPLE OF PARTICIPATION.
According to this principle, every individual has not only rights in society but also obligations. The basic obligation of each person which is also a virtue, is the participation in society and its functions. The person should tend to be social. Each individual is offering to the society according to his abilities, and is receiving from the society according to his needs. On the other hand, this principle, pushes the society to participate in wider sets of other societies, based always on the respect of the above principles.
7) THE PRINCIPLE OF THE SIMILARITY OF SCALE AND SUBSIDIARITY.
According to this principle, the small organizations (municipalities, local government, enterprises, universities, etc.) should tend to operate, in decision making, as the political democratic decision-making in the large scale public sector, and not vice versa.
The large scale, undertakes to decide only what the small scale is not in a position to decide (subsidiarity). The larger the size of a society, the greater the opportunities, of a common person, to benefit during the mortal life from the society more than what he himself is able to offer to the society.
