As you can see below, I am trying to get state support for free assemblies. These assemblies would discuss wiser and more sensible economies; the people could say what they want about the economy, what they want with their time and life, and this would be an empowering opportunity for the people to address the issue of the economy before an assembly of people. I have faith this would lead to a wiser economy.
Free assemblies, would tend to a more agrarian society, and general production.
Free Assemblies are consistent with your interests of agriculture. Because the people are not solicited into discussion of what they want with their time and life; or are not used to being part of a local decision-making process, there can be assumption of an aversion to agriculture, rather than the value of it, I see.
I hope your behind the scenes interest is used to further the promotion of my efforts at the department of community affairs.
Of course, if free assemblies are consistent with your focus, and you help me, we may take the lead in making N.J. a better place.
Indeed, it is a shame we don’t have a department of spirituality, because godliness developes as well.
I know the world is not as it seems. The first thing a free assembly would discuss is why aren’t free assemblies practiced, why hasn’t the common discussion of modern life in free assembly galvanized society, because free assemblies are logical and sensible and legal enough, to suppose there is more to this than merely me bringing it up, this could have been easily figured out. Free Assemblies differentiate ourselves from animals.
So why haven’t then been held by now? That would be the first topic of discussion and potentially galvanizing as a common concern.
If any of you have any comments regarding why Free Assemblies to discuss and decide common concerns, and give a venue to the concerns of the people, has not been practiced in recent decades, please contribute them.
Sincerely, Vic Fedorov
I will try to contact the DCA to ask where my proposal should go: advice.
This is an educational, healthy, spirited and industrious program for the minds and relief of the spectrum of citizen. Free Assemblies start with the premise of benefiting all, and I urge you to consider them.

Dear Division of Community Affairs, of the Attorney General’s Office of N.J.,
I have a proposal I would like you to consider, and help me, my associates, and my nonprofit Free Assembly Inc., help the citizens of N.J..
We would like to organize free assemblies in urban and minority areas, as well as other places: suffice that urban minority areas need free assemblies most.
The public is misinformed when free assembly is construed as a protest. A free assembly is a form of community decision-making.
We left the state of nature to discuss our community. Free Assembly is the natural and political form for these discussions and decisions. All present may discuss, rules of order apply, and all present have a voice vote so ayes and nays may decide a resolution.
In some towns of New England, (See Amherst Mass rules of local government, and Citizens Guide to Massachusetts Form of municipal government) 236 members of the town are required to be a quorum to vote on a resolution. According to Princeton Townships website, free assemblies were practiced in Princeton until 1900; in 1947 our state constitution incorporated towns with local officials; abridging free assembly, in violation of the first amendment; and delegating powers not given to the federal government by the U.S. constitution and reserved for the state or the people, to local officials, who are not the state, nor the people, and exercise powers reserved for the state or the people: In violation of the tenth amendment.
Thus this is very much a civil rights issue; as the first and tenth amendment guarantee us the privilege of free assembly, and immunity from local officials, and yet state constitutions violate this: This is about enforcing existing law. Yet the state civil rights division does not include this in its legal protection. Representative government makes sense at a state and federal level, but is not reasonable locally. The integrity required to deal with this issue can not be understated.
Free Assembly requires resolutions that can be voted on, that are of compelling interest. What these resolutions structure; the phrasing, is work as well as assessing popular issues.
The right to freely assembly is really more the right to organize free assemblies, than the right to attend them. Is not helping me abridging free assembly?
Twice I have applied for community rooms to use for free assembly and localities have abridged my procuring a space; through nonprofit and tax-paying requirements, abridging free assembly, in violation of the first amendment. Your help is needed in arranging local community rooms to have free assemblies and transmitting the civic duty of their attendance.
Free Assemblies may be had outside in parks, as well as Lodges and Churches, which requires money.
Once a place and time is decided, the free assembly and what free assembly is, is promoted. Public turn out is not easy. Promotion must advance and public, galvanize in limited society. Human beings are different from humans. Classical times addressed this apathy by enforcing attendance of free assemblies: Like voting, a civic obligation, worthy of participation. Civic pride is consistent with your charter and ethos. A spirit must be consistent with this behavior; Free Assembly must be seen as one of the best activities of our polity; a transcendent respect of democracy and each other.
The initial promotion, listing the time and place, explaining free assembly, must solicit resolutions and resolution ideas. In some New England towns, that more closely adhere to the tenth amendment, any resolution, called a warrant, with ten signatures, must be voted on.
A second promotion then goes out listing the time and place, explaining free assembly, and lists resolutions to be discussed. Getting the sense of what the resolutions should be requires caucusing and canvassing. One question I have for New England town governments is why the resolutions they discuss and vote on don’t seem to take on a repressive economy and educational system.
At the free assembly people show up, discuss and vote on the resolutions, and when the free assembly is to be is decided on. Parliamentary procedures apply, and an archon or speaker chooses who speaks next, based on the principal that those who spoke least have priority; And speakers may respond to previous points. Free Assemblies are logically where community decisions are made. Incorporated local government, consistent with these goals, may feel compelled to work with free assemblies. These kind of politics, require the help of your office, and are of interest to other states and jurisprudence.
Free Assemblies would decrease violence and crime empowering people and make the state stronger in dealing with issues that concern all N.J.. The federal government would become more readily seen as outdated. And states taking care of themselves, would more ably tailor reform.
I would like to set up Free Assemblies in 6 N.J. cities over a year through a grant and work with your agency.
Thank you Vic Fedorov
