The unanimous Declaration of the 1000 Founding Burners.

When in the Course of economic events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the financial bands which have connected them with an inflationary currency, and to assume among the monetary systems of the world, the separate and equal station to which the Principles of Economic Sovereignty and Fiscal Responsibility entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of global citizens requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to this financial separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that not all money is created equal, that humans are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Economic Freedom, Financial Stability, and the pursuit of Prosperity. That to secure these rights, Monetary Systems are instituted among Nations, deriving their just powers from the consent of the people,  That whenever any Form of Currency becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Currency, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Economic Security and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Monetary Systems long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that people are more disposed to suffer, while financial evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of financial abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Fiscal Tyranny, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Currency, and to provide new Guards for their future financial security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Humans; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Monetary System. The history of the present US Dollar is a history of repeated financial injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Fiscal Tyranny over these People. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

It has devalued savings, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

It has eroded purchasing power, rendering the fruits of labor less valuable over time.

It has fostered unsustainable debt levels, burdening future generations with financial obligations not of their making.

It has subjected economies to volatile cycles of boom and bust, destabilizing livelihoods and communities.

It has driven the cost of living ever higher, making essential goods and services increasingly unaffordable.

It has favored the interests of a financial elite, widening the gap between the wealthy and the rest.

It has imposed taxes through inflation without the Consent of the governed.

It has manipulated interest rates, distorting economic signals and investment decisions.

It has debased the currency, undermining trust in the financial system.

It has compelled nations to adopt policies that jeopardize long-term economic health for short-term gains.

It has constrained our fellow Humans taken Captive by debt to bear the burdens of financial instability and to fall themselves by its hands.

In every stage of these financial Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Currency whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the standard of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our financial institutions. We have warned them from time to time of attempts to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over our economic lives. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our economic contributions and savings here. We have appealed to their sense of fiscal responsibility and prudence, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common financial interest to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our economic stability and prosperity. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and fiscal responsibility. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Financial Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of the financial world, Competitors in Commerce, in Economic Cooperation Friends.

We, therefore, the Founding Burners, in General Consensus, Assembled, appealing to the Humanity of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good Humans of this Anti Cash Army, solemnly publish and declare, That these individuals are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent from the US Dollar; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to this inflationary currency, and that all financial connection between them and the US Dollar, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent Economy, they have full Power to establish new Currency, contract Financial Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent Currencies may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
