The Chouardists are at it, this time with a new site (in five languages) calling for an allotted constitutional assembly. They explain their project in six “chapters” that you can see along with a visitor count on the left margin. Here is the main page followed by the first part. They have also included what appears to be an endless number of videos of Chouard and some other resources.
It is the explicit proposal which should rally the millions of citizens whose political impotency is programmed in the constitution.
Because it is not the role of the people in power to write the rules of their own power
“We want a democratic Constitutional Assembly, therefore randomly drawn.”
By reading the 6 chapters of this website, you will understand that if you want to change anything in the mechanisms of our current society, you will have to make this message your one and only claim: from its application the rest will follow. To understand the strength of this message, please take a few minutes to read through the six chapters of the website, they are very short.
The chapters go to the heart of the issue and at the bottom of every page; you will find audio content, videos, documents so that you may dig deeper on every topic.

Chapter 6: Conclusion
1 – The acknowledgment of the people’s impotency
- Political power serves the interest of an ultra-rich minority against the greater good / common interest(cf. the links found under concerning the central issue of monetary creation left to private banks)
- To use the power given by the people against the greater good is an abuse of power
- A democratic regime should above all protect the people against abuse of power
- The Constitution does not organise a single counter-power, the people are left unprotected and the situation can only become worse
Our current regime is in theory the protector of people, however the people are clearly no longer protected. How is it possible to have reached such a situation in a democracy?
