Free Planet - seven billion sovereign municipalities

when we say Free Planet, we might as well be saying, "Freed planet," in the sense that both it, and us, have been made aware of our prison cell circumstance under a tyrannical jailor and that both it, and us, can fully realise our true potential as Custodians of our homeworld.

For several centuries, whether by institutionalised dogma (educational, scientific, religious or political) or by sneering arrogance in the face of the natural order, we have distanced ourselves from our DIRECT CONNECTION to the well-being of our homeworld. Mankind has been distracted by the tantaslising fore-brain lure of Profit and conscripted into insane armies whose sole purpose was to protect Commercial Growth, at all costs.

And here we are, on the brink of PLANETARY RUIN.

You are not the arbitrary NAME you've been given.
You are not the chattle of an arbitrary COUNTRY.
You are not a slave to THE CORPORATION or its meaningless global power struggle.

Technically, all seven billion of You (The People) can be termed MUNICIPALITIES, being by definition both 'regions of said planetary connectedness' and 'rulers of that jurisdiction by right'. You are wherever you want to be and you have every right to do what you must to protect freed planet from abstract games of conquest where NOBODY WINS.

So, dear humans, who does your planet belong to?
And who will you protect your freed planet from?
