The Primate of Cyberterra begins to walk on water

The required paperwork is all done, and the certificates, charter, diploma, and ID card was issued and received.

The Primate of Cyberterra now has two religious fellowships, not one, and he is in good clerical company.

He became the world’s first Cesidian Bishop through a non-denominational ordination, and an appointment of title and grant of church charter by another non-denominational church.

Now he is also an Independent Catholic Bishop through the ordination and appointment of title by another church yet.

On 8 July 2011, the Hon. Most Rev. Dr. Cesidio Tallini was ordained an Independent Catholic Priest and was appointed to the title of Bishop, with Apostolic Succession and Lineage to Christ. He also became a Member of the Board of Bishops of the Universal Life Church World Headquarters, which now has over 50 bishop members in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, and North Korea.

On 22 July 2011, the Cesidian Church was given Congregational Affiliation with the Universal Life Church World Headquarters, a genuine faith-based institution meeting all guidelines with respect to the definition of a real church and/or religious organisation, and the Hon. Most Rev. Dr. Cesidio Tallini was honoured with a Doctor of Divinity by the Universal Life Church World Headquarters School of Theology.

The Universal Life Church World Headquarters, Inc. has an A+ reliability rating with the Better Business Bureau of Northwest Florida; is a Member of the Committee of Religious NGOs at the United Nations; and is a Member of the Carrabelle Area (Florida) Chamber of Commerce.

The Ordaining Officer, The Most Reverend Michael Jordan Francis, OSM, also known as ‘Brother Michael’, is an ordained Independent Catholic Priest who was awarded the official title of Bishop in June 1982, with Apostolic Succession and Lineage to Christ.

Independent Christian and/or Catholic Bishops are often called episcopi vagantes (“wandering bishops”) because of their lack of affiliation with a larger communion of churches. The bishops of the Universal Life Church World Headquarters are also different, but not freaks, and they rightfully call themselves episcopi collegiales (“collegial bishops”), because of their congregational affiliation with the Board of Bishops!

Helping micronationalists help themselves

Steve Spence and his friends at Green-Trust may not realise it, or may not fully realise it, but they are on the cutting-edge of the potential of distributive economics.

The only form of government that is worthwhile, is the kind of government that promotes the real (not capitalistic, not communistic) welfare of the people, which is ultimately the real welfare of families, by promoting, building, financing, educating people about systems that create natural abundance.

This is the true and only purpose of legitimate government, once you get rid of all those destructive layers which are only promoting the economics of capital (aka the economics of government-printed money), of oligarchy (aka the power of the few), of dependence (outright dependence on government, which is liberalism/socialism, or dependence on those, generally corporations, which government favours, which is conservatism/capitalism), and scarcity (the economics of those who get wealthier only when other people get poorer).

Anarchists may not agree on this, but government is not really the enemy of human progress and happiness, and the truth is simply that there are too many governments of the wrong kind around, and they have far too much power, and there are too few of the right ones, which deserve to be heeded, which deserve your fellowship and support.

Today’s micronational leaders, if they don’t wish to become as obsolete as the current political-economic system has become, should pay attention to the thoughtful theologian and businessman John Médaille, who states in the brilliant article below,

It is the task of the Distributists [or Distributionists] to look around their neighborhoods and see which problems can be solved from local resources [intramicronational], which by trading with our nearest neighbors [proximicronational], and which will require wider forms of cooperation [intermicronational]. Contrary to received wisdom, the current system cannot feed the world, or at least not the world of cars, cows, and people …. We can show how the world can be rebuilt, and rebuilt with abundance.

I urge all micronationalists with excess capital, even just a thousand dollars, to lend Steve and his friends money. Chances are very good that not only they will not lose their money, but they will also make some very attractive interest, and do even greater good than loans usually provide.

For those micronationalists who are closer to the wealth of ‘hobos’, than the ‘wealth of nations’, I suggest that you participate in Steve’s raffle of a complete Aquaponics kit, or through an outright donation. More funds are still needed for hardware and other parts in order to complete the aquaponics system’ practical research and constrution.
