• I have now lived for 78 years, and I have enjoyed my life to the fullest. This is my story.
  • It's been a long and dusty road from the plow horses and dry-land cotton farm in the Texas Panhandle where the boy named Billy Jack was born in 1941. Living now as William John in Southern California and communicating with a world-wide, computerized society, my life has been challenging, interesting, and rewarding.
  • My adventures have taken me around the world, and in my travels, I have always found that People are basically good. It's a universal human trait. All parents of every race and nationality want to enjoy the fruits of their labor and to make a better life for their children.
  • Though I would not choose to walk again any part of my journey, I found most to be good, and the best was always possible. My adventures have carried risks, as I've had to confront the bad in the search for the good. Right now, I'm mostly worried about the mess we're leaving for our children to clean up.
  • There's great danger ahead, but I have an even greater faith in the shared wisdom of the American People to calmly exercise our personal Rights of Liberty, as we peacefully confront whatever awaits us just over the next hill, or beyond the horizon.
  • I shall always believe in Us, and I trust that We can work things out together. Equal in the freedoms We claim and the Rights of Liberty We proclaim, We are the People.

INTRODUCTION - VIDEO NARRATION (3:11)

This is not a Reality Show. This is Reality!


  • Americans are living under a cruel and corrupt government in a declining economy and deteriorating environment, under a U.S. government that denies and hides these problems.
  • The government no longer represents the American People—it is trampling on our freedoms, and it is endangering our security.
  • Irrespective of which political party is in office, the government is controlled by powerful corporations, special interests, and the wealthy elite. It does not matter who, or which party, one votes for—the result will be the same.
  • There is no federal constitutional right to vote, as elections have been largely left up to the States to conduct, with corporate sponsorship.

The American Dream

and the Voter's Bill of Rights


  • Even though they are burdened by $1.5 trillion in student loan debt, the current generation of young Americans access the greatest store of knowledge ever accumulated by humanity, and they quickly share what they learn with each other—in every language—worldwide.
  • Young people have the commitment and organizational skills to lead a massive, nonpartisan, netroots movement to mobilize the American People and to transform our government.
  • American women are achieving their political destiny with this generation and are now realizing their full potential. They have the collaborative ability to maintain peace within the movement, and to achieve a government that cares for those who elect it.
  • Written in the basic language of the founding documents, the Voter's Bill of Rights honors all voters by providing a constitutional right to vote, it ensures equal rights to women, and it makes all votes count equally. The Voter's Bill of Rights demands truth from the government, educates voters and future leaders, allows the People to make policy, and forces our representatives to keep their promises.

The Rights of Liberty and Consent to be Governed


  • Individuals give expression to their Rights of Liberty by granting Consent to be governed, which provides the Power to operate the People's government.
  • The People always retain the Rights of Liberty, and we can reserve our consent to be governed by an unrepresentative government. The collective, residual, and undelegated power of the People remains with us and our local councils and States of Residency.
  • Looking at it from the People's point of view, The American People are resident within 50 States United of America, which has the inherent power to dissolve a United States government that has grown dangerously out of control.
  • Once a corrupt, ineffective, unrepresentative, and threatening government fails to take action to restore dignity to our government and to earn public support, the People have a Ninth and Tenth Amendment right to reserve our consent and to declare their personal independence.
  • A Declaration of Personal Independence serves as a petition against our government for a redress of individual grievances. A national referendum on the Voter's Bill of Rights held in conjunction with the 2020 presidential election would be restorative and transformative of the People's government.
  • As a symbol of a free People residing within their States United of America, a gold stripe lovingly added to the United States flag would clearly demonstrate that it represents All Americans.

The Rights of Liberty and Consent to be Governed - VIDEO NARRATION (2:15)

A Declaration of Personal Rights of Liberty and

Withdrawal of Consent to be Governed


On July 9, 1979, I filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of all U.S. citizens, directly in the U.S. Supreme Court, alleging "There is a widely held belief, shared by many, that the Congress of the United States is in the 'grips of special interest groups' and is no longer responsive to the needs of individual citizens." I asked, "is it not time to allow the people a voice in the future of their nation and in the quality of life preserved for their children? . . . is it not true that the election of representatives is now more dependent upon massive expenditures of contributions from special interests groups than upon a vote by an informed electorate?" Without comment, the Court denied my petition for a writ of mandate requiring a national policy referendum as a remedy.

Nothing has improved politically in the 39 years since my filing, and today, the American People continue to suffer under a government that no longer represents them and their interests. Compelled, once again, to do something to force a change, I filed another pleading in the U.S. Supreme Court on February 28, 2018 in which I declared our personal Rights of Liberty against our government that has become corrupt, ineffective, unrepresentative, and threatening. I withdrew my consent to be governed—unless we are allowed to vote on the Voters' Bill of Rights during the November elections. The court clerk would not allow my pleading to be filed because it failed to conform to the Court's requirements.

I made the required changes, and I submitted the revised petition to the complaint analysts at the clerk's office for review. I was advised that, even though the pleading conformed to the Court's requirements, it could not be filed because—as a matter of policy—the Court would not allow any original jurisdiction matter to be filed by an individual.

On April 9, 2018, I sent a personal letter to each of the nine justices of the Supreme Court and attached a copy of the revised pleading as a First Amendment petition for redress of grievances. The petition concluded with these words, "The petitioner calls upon the assistance of this Honorable Court in this effort to defuse and resolve a dire threat to the survival of the United States of America. The thoughtful exercise of discretion by each individual Justice in deciding this matter is crucial—as not since Dred Scott (the slave) appeared before this Court has it faced such a moral and critical question. Are we a free People, or not?" wjc

The latest in the Mind Series, Mind: Before & After The Way of Righteousness is a collection of the Prologue, Epilogue with Photo Essay, and Summations from The Way of Righteousness. The Way is, in essence, a condensation of a well-stocked library on religious matters, world affairs, and human history. It unites the collective minds of the ages into a brilliant focus on the problems of our time. The Way not only combines this vital information in an imminently readable text, but it refines that knowledge into the insights required to reconcile differences and to bind together antagonistic religions in a healing evolution of common belief. The Way is an optimistic philosophy for the future—one that questioning young people can trust and believe in, as they break through the shell of ignorance that impedes them, as they avoid human extinction, and as they make the brave leap from Earth into the eternal universe.

Coining the term, The Book of Mindkind is a philosophy of hope in a time of despair, a wakeup call in a time of danger, and an engaging quick read for the curious-minded. The theory of Mindkind is an entirely original philosophy, likely the first to be conceived in the past century, certainly the first of the new millennium.

The Book of Mindkind is not a new-age philosophy—rather it presents a logical foundation for a practical worldwide solution for the social, economic, and environmental crises facing human existence.

An Ode to My Father,

Samuel Hubert Cox

Who taught me to read─both books and the sky.

He taught me that

"Billy Jack,

you'll always get caught,

if you don't tell the truth,"

and he taught me to work hard.

 

Then he was gone.

I was ten years old,

and I was alone.

 

From then, til now, in the 67 years since,

I may not have always lived my life

as he would have wanted me to, or

always honored the truth as I should have, but

I have always tried to live my life

with the honor and dignity with which he lived his.

 

His Spirit of Honor was passed down through

a linage of Samuel Cox's,

going back through the history of this Nation

to its founding.

 

It is to all of my fathers in these lineages that

I, today dedicate myself,

in the exercise of my Rights of Liberty─

to do so with honor and courage:

Samuel Cox, DAR A205252,

who took his Oath of Allegiance in 1777, and

Solomon Cox, DAR027084,

who was shunned by his Quaker friends in 1776,

for his performance of patriotic service.

Despairing of Gun Violence

A vision: The young people of America unite in doing something practical—beyond demonstrating—to stop gun violence and to change the human society for which they are assuming responsibility.

In every community across the Nation, young people design and construct a monument dedicated to The Destruction of Violence in front of their local school, university quad, police station, courthouse, or statehouse. These symbols—united in action and purpose by artwork that reaches for the sky—are created by discarded and surrendered weapons of violence welded together into unique sculptures of peace. Each one grows over time, as it renders harmless the terrible devices which were manufactured for human destruction.

Across America, these Peace Sculptures remain there, over the Ages—anchored into the concrete, with rust, rather than blood, running toward the gutters—in the peaceful realms of the people and their public places.

Taking up but a little sidewalk or parkway—perhaps alongside a flagpole—the living art will symbolize, name, and mourn the lives of the real people who are wounded and killed by weapons of violence. These concrete and steel demonstrations of the power of peaceful assembly continually protest against gun violence. They will mark the day someone did more than send their hearts and prayers—the day our children showed us how to end gun violence in our society. ~wjc, 4/5/18

Avoiding Another War in North Korea

During the Korean War, the United States dropped more bombs and napalm on North Korea than was used against the Japanese during World War II. The carpet bombing destroyed all of the cities and most of the villages in North Korea. More than 3,000,000 Korean civilians died in the war—most were in the North. Since the war ended with a cease fire in 1953, the North has been governed by the Kim family dictatorship, which uses the threat of American aggression to maintain its ironfisted physical and mind control of the North Korean people.

President Trump is now threatening another destructive war against the North Korean people and their society. He must not be allowed to do this—there is another way to deal with the problem. As a matter of policy, Trump can redirect his energy and efforts onto the person of Kim Jong-un, the country’s dictator, who not only threatens the safety of other nations, but who holds his own people in slavery. Why should the United States make war against a captive nation and its helpless people when there is a more effective solution?

A Financial Toll Tax: Transform, Not Reform, The Tax System

I recently awoke from a rather pleasant dream in which members of Congress and the President embraced the unique proposition that they had been elected to serve the People of the United States. Congress had determined that healthcare was a matter of right (by simply reducing the age at which a person qualified for Medicare to birth) and that every child should have free access to a college education.

Having thus dedicated the fortunes of the Nation to the future of its children, the members of Congress—conservatives, liberals, and independents alike—collaborated on how to best pay for these commitments and to reform the income tax system. In their wisdom, they decided to transform the taxation system.
