Within the structure that we have laid out, the two primary branches of international federal government are the Parliament and the Judiciary, with the former handling lawmaking, and the latter handling the justice system and interpretation of the Constitution. In an eco-socialist federation, the functions of the judicial branch of government, as well as the size, are expanded to cover more thorough application of constitutional authority, as a means of safeguarding against potential government corruption within elected representatives of Parliament and the departments of the lower executive bureaucracy.

When a federation is created, the territory it encompasses it is to…


Central to the idea of an eco-socialist federation is how power can be chiefly balanced between the people’s interests and long term interests of survival and development. It must be efficient in pursuing progress according to its set goals, but must also be capable of catering to short-term needs and desires. It must be capable of changing to fit the times, but not so easily corruptible to allow the rise of a tyrannical minority of elites, or a tyrannical majority of crowds swayed by demagogues. …


As we discussed last issue, the Orion Manifest only briefly touched on the other two branches of Orion, and it is appropriate that in lieu of a full and official guide, we should touch on the purpose and aims of the sister branches to the Sword of Orion. We have covered Liberius, and now we move onto the Museion Institute, or Museion.

As stated in the Manifest, Museion is the research branch of Orion, but just because it does not interact directly with the public as Liberius and the Sword do, it is no less important to the cause, and…


While the general purpose and structure of Liberius, the sister branch of the Sword of Orion within Orion, has been discussed within the Orion Manifest, and will be covered in further detail in the second official book publication which is in production, more of its purpose within the overall goal of our organization has not been properly expounded on, and I will take this issue to discuss such, with the next issue dedicated to the Museion Institute, the third and final branch.

Each branch of Orion is designed to fight in some way for the preservation of humanity and the…


Within our grasp is the ability to organize ourselves in a way that allows us to ensure mutual prosperity and survival — a collective that would work to eliminate class division and promote environmental recovery. However, there is one major obstacle, which will occupy the majority of the attention of the Sword of Orion and its sister branches — there are many that do not believe in and actively oppose our cause, and many who simply do not know of the ideas for which we stand.

This is not a problem limited to ESF theory alone, but to many progressive…


On the topic of a stateless society, let us work through a thought experiment about an important aspect of world federation — those that simply refuse to join in. Imagine, if you will, that we have formed an eco-socialist federation, and we are busy taking a census of all our citizens. We come across a small homestead, a farm maintained by one person, who is not a federation citizen. Despite any offers to incorporate within the community, the farmer does not wish to join the federation, pay taxes, or accept any benefits — they want to remain separate, with their…


The question has been asked before — do we need a state, and for that matter, organized society? Humans lived nomadic existences as hunters long before we settled down and formed civilization, and in the eyes of some, the events that resulted are evidence we should abandon modern systems of gathering, all the way from the first civilizations to the long-lasting negative effects of the Industrial Revolution. However, while it is undeniable that the world today is in disarray and disaster, it does not mean we should abandon everything we have learned, and declare organized society a lost cause. …


Three theories I have introduced through previous issues — the path to world federation through coordinated revolution, hybrid-planned economic structure, and de-escalation policy for environmental revitalization — all compose what we would call the main ideology of Orion — eco-socialist federalist theory, or ESF theory for short. Knowledge of the Tenets is important to understand the purpose of eco-socialist federation, but ESF theory comprises the specific direction that we believe would most effectively allow us to reach a higher level of societal development.

In summary, ESF theory proposes the creation of a international world government, democratically run through the integration…


The view of the world as cruel and unfair has unfortunately become commonplace. Largely in relation to the political problems listed last issue, most people have become more and more accustomed to the idea that things will continue to get worse rather than better, and that trying to savor what precious little time we have left and escape from the madness is the best option available. It’s not without reason, but it is largely a defeatist argument, because the task of fixing what we have done seems so big, and so impossible, that most people think there is no way…


The world faces a clear and present danger — the quest for greater power. That lofty goal of being raised above others, of being at the top, is one people have sought after for all of human history — and as a result, we have hardly ever gone a year without war, and the concept of being born in a comfortable life without struggling against disadvantage are left to chance. It’s not as if life has to be this way — everyone in the world has a need, and society in its most ideal would serve to use the resources…
