The Palace of Malice

On February 7, 2008 the Los Alamos County Council voted to destroy the physical symbol of the Independence of Los Alamos.

On December 21, 2010 5 Members of the Los Alamos County Council, 2 of whom voted in the affirmative in the above cited action, voted to destroy the liberties and rights of the citizens of Los Alamos and to vacate the Charter which was the codification of the Independence of Los Alamos.

The Palace of Malice, akin to Nero's Golden Palace and destined to become home to Ozymandius, will be built upon a foundation of legal chicanery, ruthless manipulation, self-aggrandizement, wanton destruction, and the wholesale abuse of Public Trust and authority --- but at what cost, and borne by whom?

Reality Check -- No community of any size can long survive the destruction of its heritage, the dissolution of its freedoms, and the permanent division of its citizens.

1) As Goes Los Alamos -- So Goes Los Alamos

The Los Alamos Myopia Statement says, "Los Alamos and the Labs are inseparable".

Reality Check : Au contraire. Los Alamos and the Lab are separate and have been ever since The Gates were opened. This was the intent when, in 1960, the process was begun to transfer authority for Los Alamos from the AEC to Los Alamos -- a process that was completed on June 24th, 1967 with the dedication of the Los Alamos County Municipal Building and the signing of the documents which gave full authority of Los Alamos to Los Alamos as an independent, self-determining, self-actualizing polity.

The future of Los Alamos depends on never losing sight of our independence and responsibility to the consequences thereof.
