I were Caesar © Robert
|If I were Caesar
|The position of
Caesar is not hereditary.
Please note that in ancient Republican
Rome, or in ancient Japan, absolute
dictatorial powers were given,
temporarily to a military leader to
subdue a national threat. It was only
later that these powers became an
inherited position; and hence abused
by later generations.
This is not the case with me, as I
couldn't possibly live that long and
the position of Caesar would therefore
simply be as a one-time world-fix.
One modality: The Senate could have
alternates, ready to take their seat.
The Constitution could be altered to
demand the Senate body elect an
autocrat, military-dictator instead of
a President. If not by a certain date,
they lose their job.
The autocrat stands for election every
Or this: We put a handsome, yet
relatively small piece of money into
an account for Caesar's retirement. He
specifies exactly what he is to
accomplish while in office and can't
get any personal money until he is out
of power. He is elected for four years
and has a re-certification election
every two years. When all has been
accomplished, he retires and lives
How it would go:
The population will be queried by vote
as to whether executions for capital
crime is acceptable, yes or no? I
would take their feelings under
advisement. There will generally be a
fairly common mode of punishment.
There will be capital punishments,
banishments and work sentences. There
will be a wholesale lessening of the
A world plan will be promulgated for
There shall be a
graduating-scale, permanent stipend
system to award and augment the lives
of the best of citizens.
Such stipends would be small and
increase or fall away with changes in
career. Stipends can be withdrawn for
an overtly flawed career and can be
owed back for crime.
Caesar receives a permanent stipend
but all governing expenses of Caesar,
as all office holders and public
positions, are born by the government.
1 All car companies will convert to electric
motors or non fossil-fuels burning, as
immediately as practicable.
2 Solar generators will be installed and
research pursued, world wide. Utilities
companies will install to all roofs, solar
panels. There will be housing and building
surfaces covered, where possible, by solar. They
will phase out inefficient power generation. All
future buildings should be power generating.
Cities shall be power generators rather than
3 On-going production may be necessary to
accomplish sustainability into the future,
however nuclear power generation might
have to be disallowed except for researches of
medicine, submarines, sustainable nuclear waste
handling, reconstitution, advanced materials
research and capacity, and future space craft.
New constructions must fit in an overall world
plan. If proven not viable, present breeder
facilities will be dismantled. Nuclear
industries must attain a fully integrated
re-cycling systems structure.
4 Petroleum and petroleum products will be used
for materials only, research for materials only,
burning will be disallowed, except for the
shrinking and temporary interests of car
5 The national power grid will be converted from
wires and towers into and feeding a new
transportation system. Vehicles will run over
conductors of the new power distribution system
and will link all major areas. Any given
country's power contribution gains them world
finance credit. Energy credits will be the basis
of future international banking. The system
shall be designed and instituted forthwith.
Important: With transportation, biological and
organic diversity must be maintained and
disparate environments held secure.
6 Highways will be converted into slot-car
railways and magnetic pillow conduits feeding
battery storage, vehicle power and
communications, and city grid services.
7 Drivers will have to show they can handle a
car in adverse conditions and will have to
understand what may be going on behind them and
around them. Smart cars will have their drivers
ticketed for poor performance, and to specify
for courts and insurance, negligent conduct and
have the power to revoke licenses.
8 Endangered species will receive absolute

instituted to relieve us of the arguments
to Present Law and Authority
1 Effort shall be undertaken to reexamine all
past criminal cases, violations of the law and
the judgements of the courts to relieve for the
people, the burdens of the past.
2 Unnecessary laws will be revisited and bad
laws will be revoked. Law-making must meet a
criteria of necessity.
3 Manipulation of law for personal gain will be
a violation of the public good and therefore
criminal. Drawing out trials for career or
financial gain of lawyers is criminal.
4 All past cases of police brutality will be
5 All cases of past prosecutions will be fairly
reexamined. Particularly heinous activity will
receive judgement - all other poor activity by
prosecutors will be forgiven.
6 All contested criminal cases in the future
will have DNA tests for all parties and
witnesses. All people involved will have
exploratory lie-detector tests, accused,
witnesses, attorneys, police, prosecutors,
judges and juries.
7 Prisons and their practices shall be
reexamined and relieved of torturous conditions.
8 To the degree prisons are retained, they will
become manufacturing centers, paying for
themselves and possibly creating new careers for
9 Prosecutors, police and doctors with
perfect records will receive a socially
recognized Position of Mastership and permanent
10 Education for police and public servants will
have coordinated curriculums to achieve a degree
of excellence in which the entire populace can
all know pride.
11 Manipulation of the political system for self
gain will be capital crime.
12 Fire in a Theater Law: Knowingly spreading
lies for political or personal gain is abuse of
the public. Malicious lying over public venues
is criminal. Conspiracy to abuse the public is
13 Proselytizing over the public venues will be
14 Manipulation of large finance to the
detriment of the financial envelope of society,
for egregious personal gain is
15 Murder and heinous abuse of
children is capital crime.
16 We will be intolerant of cultural crimes
17 Police will coordinate through a Police
Network and take action against scammers and
thieves and other criminals operating at a
18 A new reckoning of land use shall be
organized. Peoples and their histories shall be
considered into a correct propriety with respect
of uses and ownerships and future conduct.
1 The Senate will become functionors of
government and advisers to Caesar.
2 Environmental protection and world cleanup is
necessary. Therefore a department of
environmental action will be created,
appropriate plans will be engaged and acted
upon. There will be clean air and clean water.
World resource harvesting will be integrated
into a sustainable practices regime.
3 Space and planetary activities will be planned
and acted upon. These will include prioritizing
pollution-free acquisition of advanced
4 There will be world-wide education. The
sciences, including engineering, business, true
history and correct worldly bearing shall be
taught to every child. Individual countries shall
partake either through taxation/return
arrangement or direct investment. Curriculums
may be culturally based but shall share and
provide a world-wide, scientifically based,
common education that includes the arts and
[It may be reasonable to coordinate all funds
for education and for health-care from all the
nations, including all present philanthropy,
into central distribution. Perhaps from the
present UN. This would allow more clarity
throughout the world]
5 Rich countries engaged in global production
will open facilities in poor countries.
6 There shall be universal, one-payer health
care, where doctors specify treatments,
government has no discretion and no bureaucracy;
it pays all costs but fraudulent healthcare will
be criminal and meet harsh punishment.
7 Dentists, doctors and veterinarians doing
unnecessary procedures for extra profit or
perverse psychological reasons will be punished.
Same for lawyers.
8 There shall be a definition between
profit-making business and utilities. Some
endeavors are necessary for life and their
provision shall be free of egregious
profiteering and regulated to reflect current
states of market and monies. There shall be
provision of utilities accounting status of
personal wealth. The poor pay less, business
pays less, the wealthy pay less.
