When the Constitution of the United States of America was written, the "people" meant White, Male, Protestant, Landowners. Women only had the rights the men in their lives granted them. The native people were considered savages to be exterminated, and the black slaves were considered 3/5ths of a person. In the meantime, considerable progress has been made so that most of us believe that We, the People, means all the people. However, it is obvious that somehow the White, Male, Protestants who are wealthy still have the power to shape the society so that it overwhelmingly and unjustly benefits them.
The Massachusetts Republic is creating a new society based on “We the People” meaning all the people. We intend to listen to - so as to hear, every individual in our community. With everyone, we then intend to build a community of communities that is responsible to the communities it represents. The implementation of this bottom-up organizational structure is explained on this website.
