I was going to go with "Irreni Solutions VS Zombies". But, "The Talking Dead" allusion to "The Walking Dead" TV series zombies serves and the talking dead is how I would like to introduce an Irreni World Scale big fancy pants idea: COx.
COx Principle of Human Quality: Dead humans, space aliens and supernatural creatures have no hold on humans. A person's loyalty is first and foremost to their fellow living humans, all of them.
Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of nineteen years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right. ... Factions get possession of the public councils, bribery corrupts them, personal interests lead them astray from the general interests of their constituents; and other impediments arise, so as to prove to every practical man, that a law of limited duration is much more manageable than one which needs a repeal.

About year ago, I was chatting with a senior executive at a large organization that had just seen a new CEO arrive on the scene. I asked how it was going and she said that the striking thing about the new CEO was that he was very “self-effacing.”She contrasted this as a big change from the former CEO who while being very smart, was brash and lacking in modesty. She said, “He would suck all the oxygen out of any room because the attention always had to be on him.”COx is short for contradictory oxygen principle. The dead are sucking all the oxygen out of the room for the living today and the contradiction is that the dead can't even breathe. Fuck that. We are building out planet Earth. What does that mean for future generations? What it shouldn't mean is we proscribe future generation's lives cradle-to-grave based on what we've built or destroyed. That's the COx principle. The talking dead have no power over the talking living.
The impact of the COx principle on Irreni World Scale is that once Irreni is up and running then it will always be up and running and thus effectively rewriting the constitution permanently. Every generation has to right to rewrite their government's constitution. The only reason we don't scrap the US constitution today is that we are abject cowards. Oh, and some of us have a religious fetish with the founders and the original constitutional document.
Another implication of the COx principle is that all generations are stewards of the planet Earth. Each generation must leave the Earth in a healthy condition for the next generation's self determination.
Imagine if you will space aliens from outer space contact Earth and you are the person they choose to contact. These aliens call themselves Zombies. The Zombies ask you to join them. Your job is to help them kill off every single human but yourself. The Zombies make a compelling argument that one living human means nothing so you can trust them. They will give you anything and everything you want for the rest of your entire life. You just have to help them kill all humans.
Who would you go through in with it? Help the Zombies or would you be loyal to humans living on this planet? Of course you'd pick the humans. And yet? For some reason people pick the dead over living. The US Constitution was written by a bunch of dead guys. Time to move on. Even worse humans pick some made-up supernatural God. God is not human. Humans should only have loyalty to other living humans. Period. Religion is evil because religion promotes loyalty to non-humans, the supernatural. The COx prinple of human quality says humans are loyal to living humans only. Since humans have the ability for self-determination then there exists no obligation whatsoever to any supernatural power, past generation, space alien or god.
Isn't that empowering? No more big questions about "where did we come from" or "why are we here?" Those questions do not matter because we have the ability for self-determination and our highest moral standard is to determine our own destiny!
