I'm looking to go door to door raising support for an issue and collect signatures that I present to state legislaturors. If there any map software paid or free that i could use for that?

Say I get 10 volunteers so I can split up a district into 5 sections 1 for each team. I could do this manually but Is there digital tools to help me and my grass roots movement?

Noblesville

Friday, May 25th 2018. 9:06 am, Noblesville West Middle School, Indiana

Written on July 7th, 2018

Written and edited by: Laur Baird

A male student, 13, asked to be excused from his class to go to the bathroom, and returned to his classroom with two handguns. One student and one teacher were injured when the student opened fire in the classroom. The student, named Ella, 13, was shot seven times, while her science teacher, Mr. Seaman, 29, was shot three times. Ella was shot in the face, neck, hand, and upper chest. Mr. Seaman was shot in the forearm, abdomen, and hip. “My actions on that day, in my mind, were the only acceptable actions I could have done,” said Seaman, several days after the shooting took place.

The suspect used one gun to shoot, which was a .22, and had another gun in his pocket, which was a .45, along with a knife. He will not be tried as an adult in court, because the murder attempt was not successful.

“I had just checked the time, when a few shots echoed through the building. I didn’t know what it was, it sounded like fireworks.” This was a statement made by Lauren, who is a student at Noblesville West. She had been in the hallway at the time the shooting began. “Our Vice Principal came on the intercom as soon as the shots rang out and stated, “There is an active shooter in a seventh grade hallway, please perform your Alice positions.” The Alice procedures state that you should never open the door for anybody outside of the classroom for safety. Lauren was in a seventh grade hallway, the one next to where the shots were coming from. “I began crying and shaking,” Lauren did the only thing she knew she could do- she ran towards one of the classrooms with the doors shut, and lights off. She knocked on the door and told the people inside her name, and told them that she was stuck in the hallway. Lauren then ran inside the classroom once the teacher had opened the door for her and slammed it shut again, hurrying over to where her other classmates were sitting. She sat down next to her friends, holding hands for support as they waited.

A police officer came over the intercom and announced to everybody that the suspect was in police custody. “Everyone stood up, some crying, and texting their parents… people lined the streets with cameras and phones, recording us leaving the school.” The students got on a bus and drove to the highschool nearby, where a man told them all to get into a classroom. They led the middle school students out in groups of ten. There were around one thousand, three hundred students present.

The shooter had been known to most neighbors as a normal, average kid. Although, a few neighbors had a different image of him. One neighbor said that two boys had seen the suspect, months before the shooting, playing with a gun. They said that they were not sure if the gun was real or not. The boys ran home and told their parents, and the parents called the Noblesville Police to investigate.

A student, who was in a seventh grade science class at the time of the shooting, said that they made improvised weapons and were prepared to defend themselves, if it would come to that. They tied a rope around the inside of the door, so if somebody tried to open the door, they wouldn't be able to get inside the room. They went into a room inside their classroom that was off limits. He said that students were crying and asking questions, and nobody knew what was going on.

When asked by a reporter, a female student said that she never would have thought this would happen to her school. “You never actually think that it could happen so close to home, that it can affect people you know,” said Ciara, who goes to Noblesville high school.

I had the privilege of interviewing another student from the middle school, who was in the classroom where the shooting took place. “I was taking a test… I heard the first shot and looked up to see that it was one my classmates that was just in the classroom with me.” She said that her teacher, Mr. Seaman, told his students to get down, and she grabbed her phone while dialing 911. She was the first person to call the police, and she stayed on the line while she exited the classroom, running into the neighborhood as she left the school. She said that she never could have imagined he would do anything like he did, and that he was always trying to make others laugh. I asked her if she still thinks about the shooting, she responded with, “yes. I think about it all the time, almost every second of every day.”

I am grateful to say that as of writing this in July, both Ella, and Mr. Seaman have both made a physical recovery. Ella had a neck brace on during the fourth of July parade in Noblesville, where she rode in the parade. Although Ella may not have come to the full realization of what happened to her that day, she is on the road to recovery, and is staying strong every step of the way. Mr. Seaman has been declared a hero by his fellow students and staff, as well as members of the community.

We inherit assets AND ethnicity but should only inherit ethnicity.

Also Abrahamic monotheism is a racist reduction of polytheism where each ethnicity has deific representation.

  • This is a unfiltered, unpolished concept I've been built for two month, of what I think how our society should moving forward. It will be under constant revisions. I will need criticism and opinions and I wish to seek collaborator and donation and forming discussion group. I haven't done any research, there is no reference to back things up yet. This is not a publish work(yet...), this is the framework for how things for the execution that is been sitting in the conner of my brain for years.

  • My focus at current state is to express myself of what I've been thinking, find someone with the same interest, and trying to complete the main operating framework and ruling out all the exploitable bugs,

  • There is a lot of trouble we are facing. The motive of this all, the "article" -- is trying to fix as much world problem as I can, no boundary set, it's all wild, it's stupid, it's ridiculous. I don't care. And I don't expect anyone to put any value in it. But I promise when all things connected together, it will started to make sense at the end.

  • I am not a native English user. I can go back and fixes my grammar mistake or polish my phrases a little, but that is not my priority yet.

  • It's all started with a thought of a society that don't need any money.
  • How would it look like? How does it function?
  • Why isn't that happening?

  • First, people don't realize that thing could be happening. We stuck in the past of thinking capitalism is all how it should be, and this is how it will always be.

  • Second, some people, powerful people intended to keep things that way. Because they obviously benefit from current system. Any progressive changes would be a backfire to them.

  • Third, we don't know a viable way to do this. All we came comes up with have flaws,

  • Forth, we were facing many failure in the past, communism is a massive failure. It kills so many innocent people now no one dares to bring up it.

  • But what if we keep things the same?

  • It would not work. Because:

  • Climate change, environment pollution, food wastages, extreme income inequality, poverty, world hunger issue, drug abuse, because low to none effort regulation and cultural exception to work even on sick or at unhealthy environment therefore increasing chances of epidemic outbreak, people living on loans and debts, unfordable living cost, AI development, Automation, monopoly, insincere media narratives, invasion of privacy, daylight corruptions, Russia meddling, polarized ideology, degeneration of democracy, rises of dictatorship, rises of religious extremist promoting violence ideology and intolerance of others, human rights violations, more and more obnoxious racism, bigotry, and anti LGBT stand, Weak America, Brexit and disarrayed EU, Russia, China, Turkey etc rising in power. China become a surveillance state, advance of facial recolonization will allow easier to arrest anybody, China building military island around SEA sea...

  • We are heading into a dystopian future if we don't change cause.

  • I will split this long summary into parts for better reading experience and because it is crazy long.

Part 1:

  • In my social model/theory, all things must comes from human right, and not arbitrarily moral that passes from old age that clam it source from the one and only god.
  • If there should be a moral bases on god, then it should bases on the God, that is Almighty, and the one and only. And I proven how any description of any religion is wrong. You know, no one like their world view to be challenged by "Science", because the "Science" is just not powerful enough to disprove the existence of God. So I try to bring them down from the inside. Let the God to disprove their fantasies himself. Sigh.
  • Basically all because none of their gods are mighty enough to beat my "ever transcending God", the "one and only true God". Case close.
  • So the god doesn't care. Or it doesn't exist, or everything happen is being allowed. Either way, there is no lingering in those old texts anymore.

  • God's law, or physics law, depend if the god exist or not. Is undeniable. God want you to die, you cannot live. You can walk on water because the God want you to walk on water. You cannot fly, because the God doesn't want you to fly. But after you create a machine call "plane" and from there on you can fly. But if the God doesn't want you to fly, the plane would not work. Because God.

  • That's means under the God's law, everything could happen. Everything could be allowed. Include killing people, exploding our own solar system, or turn the moon into cheese cake. If God doesn't allow it to happen, it wont happen. We can say it in another way, if God want it to happen, it will happen.

  • Animals law. We are all animals. Why are we animals? Because we all die, seeking pleasure and avoiding pain. And poop, piss, and eat and sleep. That's not important here. Same as any other living beings out there. We all cannot resist this law. And that's almost about it.

  • Humans law. You cannot defy the human law if you are a human, or want to call yourself a human, or at least, want to enjoy the privileges of being one in the human collection. The human law include most if not all the human rights, and exchange of having the rights we expect individuals to uphold the companying responsibilities. Anyone who trench the law will be strip out of the title of human being by the whole human collection. They now cannot hold any official power, own any lands, or holding any legal bindings, because we deem they "immature" and incapable of handle that kind of responsibility.

  • So what are their status like? Don't worry. The are now just like toddler, or a cat, a dog. You wouldn't hand a toddler a gun don't you? One of the responsibility of being human is to treat all friendly animals kindly and provide help if needed, they could still have shelter, food, medical treatment, personal freedom or even entertainment. They just can't "own" anything.

  • They can regain the rights of being a human again at anytime.

  • I have arrange it in a way the top law always has the highest priority to the bottom law. The top always seem undeniable,

  • God's law will always have the higher priority then animal's law. And animal's law will always higher than human law. The world can be no living beings but the world cannot be no God. Human cannot exist if animal/living beings itself does not exist. Any law below human law, for example, Christian law, or state law, or culture manner cannot being enforce if the target is not a "human".

  • You must first exist, than being a living being/animal, only than you can be a human. Only if you being a human you would be possible to being a citizen of said country, or being Christian, or participating any cultural value.

  • Technically you can only obey the god's law and ignore the others. If you successfully to bypass/ignore the animal's law, any living being can not to treat you as living being. If you bypass/ignore the human law, we human don't need to treat you as our fellow humans. You will be exclude from any human rights and privileges, any human can even gun you down or imprison if you are proven hostile to human kind, like the way we treat tiger, lion, or wolves. If you are fine with not having human rights, we would treat you like dog, rabbit, deer, anything cute or innocent.

  • If a religion rules promoting violence and discrimination, that would be conflicting with human law. Believers either chose to abandon their human status, abandon the religion or doing the smart thing, modify the religion's rule to fit into the human law.

  • This could have a vast implication in the future when new intelligent species occur, like alien, or sentience AI robot, or transhuman, or intelligent modified animals, they will be vastly included as "human". Until they chose not to.

Part 2:

  • Second part of fixing is to remove currency. The world would not collapse. We still will need to eat, we still need to work. In theory everything could still function the same. In my explanation, it's like skipping the middle media, we all need to eat, so we all need to work anyway. Money exist out of scarcity, why barricade someones need behind money if we can feed everyone? Everyone can have a cellphone, a living place, Internet, water and electricity, three meals a day... If they don't, well, they will have to buy one anyway. Why isn't they having one already? It that because we don't have enough of everything to provide them? No, it is because they can't pay the money, so every produced extra resources are locked away, behind the glasses. We rather wasted it away, hording, selling them to another person that already having more then a few functioning items, or just waste it away into the dumpster.
  • Gift economy. Everything is free. No one in any status can force anyone to do anything, every contribution solely happen based on voluntary, as a "gift".
  • Everybody can chose to work, or solely working for them selves only, or not doing any work at all, if they don't want to. With an additional promise that anyone can take as much as they want without restriction(most case) and without adding any value to the production. My justification? Why not? That's what essentially rich people do. Form the literal sense, they did not produce enough resources to the collection, yet, they possess more resources than anyone. Does the society collapse because of this? Of course no(but I think we are close to). What I'm doing here is just to let everyone to have the chances to "taste" what's like to being rich, (and irresponsible).
  • Another flip point, what you an I were doing essentially pointless in sense of survival, and it is no different from jacking off inside a room. Movie makers, youtubers/streamers accouter, janitor, drug dealer, real estate manager, Priest, IT worker, builder, journalist, designer, teacher, cook, police, office workers, gangster, prisoners, solider, sells men... none of them providing us with more food, or bring more water, some of them having higher pay, but we are absolutely fine it these people didn't anything beside wank off all day.
  • Consumer decide how much of the luxury do they want/need, if the production does not reach their quota, then they either bear for not having it, or decide to be the producer/worker themselves, since no want want it so much beside themselves.
  • Worker has the direct autonomy of his/her product, since their contributions are as "gift" and not a "trade", the owner has no obligation to give the "gift" to anyone in the first place.
  • This approacher would indirectly reaching an balance on our needs and the worker's rights, with the healthy of our environment.
  • Because working is essentially so pointless, and don't giving much personal gains to the individual that work, the lazy, the corrupted, the low standard, the opportunistic would far less likely be in interest in exploit the system, and instead they would more likely to just sit out and take whatever their end result is, car, house, private jet, etc(hey everything is free) ; left out the ones that doing work because they sincerely enjoys it and willing to take pride and full responsibility on their work.
  • Point out many jobs are obsolete, or could have solve better with open resource management. Some job was even there to create restraint/barricade/limitation/anti-consumers practice out of an intention and purpose for more capital gains.
  • For example, casher, if everything is free, in most case they might no need for a casher in store anymore. For another example we could dissolves the varying degrees of cooperate competitors with lesser advanced production of same type. The current market is overflow with productions from many, many companies. If all the product are doing the same thing, and some are doing better then others, why should we wasting effort maintain the less advance/mediocre productions?
  • the free up population can decide whether to dedicate into working on something they want, or something that is more important: exploration, research, entertainment, arts, or help the current work force to lighten their work loan by taking shifts, or they can just waste their time away.
  • and because of it's nature, things will stir toward transparency. People would need to know every information to get an accurate prediction on how much resources the collection have, to know how much of work or resource relocation they need to make. Covering, conceal, and deceiving actions would no longer being consider as competitor's edge, because it would causes major destruction.
  • Promote better resources management and healthier environment and lifestyle.
  • Most technology knowledges would be available to public and become easily accessible. Any invention and technology irritation could be rapidly adopted, duplicated and become the newer model of standard.

Part 3:

  • Third part including other miscellaneous things, and some adjustment to make the whole model makes more sense and more complete.

  • Remove privacy. We as common people already lose them. Justice and results of an investigation always comes too late when the damage is done. (Brexit, Trump- Russian meddling). But now is for the big cooperations and government to lose it to public to. It's only fair!

  • To compete with online trolls, and untrustworthy news sources and fake identity, everyone will need a public identity and many private identity. The public identity is completely transparent to not just the government, but everyone. Public identity is used on certain information sensitive website like political voting, publishing, etc. Any comment while using public identity will be taken serious and be treated as spoken with your own words. The user must taken full legal responsibility. Private identity holding no weight. You can speak whatever you like, you will still trigger government surveillance, but nothing will be taken serous.

  • To combat the sensational news, fake news issue, all news report must open a case profile to collect different raw, unedited original texts, videos, and documents collected from all deferent media outlet into a publicly accessible website. The media could have all the narrative they want for purpose of quick information access. Media must label and made clear that their narrative should not perceive as 100% truth, for more information the viewer must goes to the website for raw data. Action will be taken accordingly If a judge founds out one or a few media's narrative is too far fetch from the overall raw data.

  • Doing drugs is legal, free, and it is doing under government supervision. Only the government are allowed to produce drugs. Any selling beside government is illegal, This thing cannot have any private contractor. Government can provide healthier environment, clean needles, and counseling and medical assistant, rehab etc. The drug dealers cannot compete with zero price market, they will loosing power and control from the local and from their user.

  • Private company can still exist, money can still be exist, but now with the free alternatives, they have to convince the public and provide a better services to justify their existence.

  • Promoting violence , hate and genocide, is by default a violation of human right. Freedom of speech is arranged lower than other related human rights such as "Do not threat, blackmail, ransom, harass and, or any other similar activities to other human and human law protected individual." If one human law is conflicting with another human law, the highest law in priority wins.

  • For those fanatics, they will taken to debate, and defend your ideology. It have consequence if they failed.

  • Disagreeing with human right, you could end up being exclude yourself from human right.

  • If you fail to given reason, and a solution from the situation you proposed to get you out of your mess, or your solution is just violence and "kill all of them". You will faces the consequence from your ideology.

  • When you damaging the other's right, you are risking to damage your own right in your own way, from your own words.

Part 4:

  • At last, I would like to try to provide a few ways to change everything.
  • I tried to provide a peaceful, legal and humane way in most cases to change the social environment, without challenging the current law enforcement system(the finance part is still being impacted, sorry).
  • I believe people must have a chance to change their view when they finally getting the full picture on how everything will work. I propose a one time offer for the high profile criminals, dictator, corrupted law enforcers, senators a chance to step down, and walk away with what they already got.
  • My point would try to encourage seeking the path to a win-win-win situation for everyone, good guy or bad guy. Giving people some options and benefits instead of just damn them to be at the wrong side and jump to judgment and all that. I think this is the least resistance and most efficient way.
  • I wrote some backup plan if anything goes wrong, and offer a few alternatives, if we didn't go down the obvious superior social structure(in my opinion).
