“(That was the end of Craignito’s address that day. He spent the next 15-20 minutes handing out what might be called campaign buttons, except that they didn’t refer to any particular candidate. What they said was, “THE TVP WILL MAKE ALL THE PEOPLE RICH, INCLUDING THE POOR!” In multicolored blinking lights. Each button was equipped with a lithium battery more than sufficient to keep those buttons blinking well past election time — a little less than a year away. On the back of each button etched in the metal was …to be continued)”

THE SEVEN IMMEDIATE EFFECTS OF THE TWELVE VISIONS PARTY
First and foremost, the immediate effect of the Twelve Visions Party will be the end of poverty.
The second stunning effect of the Twelve Visions Party will be the rapid eradication of many diseases.
The third welcomed effect of the Twelve Visions Party will be the eradication of terrorism and crime.
The fourth needed effect of the Twelve Visions Party is minimizing unemployment.
The fifth effect of the Twelve Visions Party would be greatly improved quality of life.
The sixth effect of the Twelve Visions Party would be the superior quality of education in the Twelve Visions World.
The seventh effect of the Twelve Visions Party: it will quickly stop America’s fall into insolvent bankruptcy.
…and what magic ingredient will make possible these miraculous changes: the 3000-YEAR-OLD SECRET: the Prime Law
THE PRIME LAW ®
(The fundamental natural law of protection)
The purpose of human life is to prosper and live happily.
The function of government is to provide the conditions that let individuals fulfill that purpose.
THE PRIME LAW guarantees those conditions by forbidding the use of initiatory force, fraud, or coercion by any person or group against any individual, property, or contract.
No person, group of persons, or government, shall initiate force, threat of force, or fraud, against any individual’s self, property, or contract.
Force is morally and legally justified only for protection from those who violate Article One.
No exceptions shall exist for Articles One and Two.
(*The Prime Law is the fundamental, natural law of protection (that directs all decisions and actions of the Twelve Visions Party) and is not open to amendment or change.)
TO WATCH THE CREATOR OF THE PRIME LAW® SPEAK ABOUT IT, GO TO:
(It’s a week later. Craignito’s inner and outer state are congruent, but not in the way anticipated. 7 days on the “mental diet,” plus everything else the Master Key program was bringing to the table, should have resulted in happiness and joy, not this)
BUC: “Hey, Craigo, my boy, that look on your face reminds me of that passage from The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse.”
CRAIGNITO: “Well, what was that, Sub? I realize we both have photographic memories and all that – but I’m the one stuck with the memory where nothing ever develops. Remember?”
BUC: (chuckling) “It went:
‘When this Happened, they fought. Stinging flames of words blistered their tongues. Silence was worse. Beneath its slow-burning weight their black looks singed. After a few days, their minds shriveled into dead coals. Some speechless nights, they lay together like logs turned completely to ash.’”
CRAIGNITO: “What are you trying to say, Sub? The only relationship I’m in is with you – and we get along just fine. Don’t we?”
BUC: Granted, I’m exaggerating to make a point. Our society is set up to foster this couple’s disturbing state of existence; yet despite that, there is nothing that prevented the author from employing the artistry required for description so vivid. In all endeavors, conditions are such that every individual is served well, who strives for self-directed behavior, for self-leadership.
This is why you were asked to deeply incorporate the “7 Laws of the Mind.” For instance,
“Law of Forgiveness — To access the Divine and connect the subconscious to the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Creator we must forgive everyone and anyone to clear the channel. There can be no connection to the Divine mind where anger or resentment against a brother or sister, justified or not, exists.”
With all the positivity, why do I see another flare-up of your previous attitudinal proclivity? Why do I still see ‘…but there is no joy in Mudville. The mighty Casey has struck out!’ What happened to your PMA, POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE, sweet pea?”
CRAIGNITO:“Buc, I think I’m hexed.”
BUC: “What do you mean, ‘hexed?’”
CRAIGNITO:“Well, the movie I intended to write about, Door to Door, showed up just in time last Friday.”
CRAIGNITO: “Well, it wasn’t Door to Door. It was Maleficent (definition: adjective, harmful or evil), because I somehow forgot to move Door to Door to the top of my Netflix queue.”
CRAIGNITO:“So, I sent it back, and guess what?”
CRAIGNITO: “Door to Door should be arriving in my mailbox, today.”
CRAIGNITO: “No, it isn’t. Netflix says they’ve sent some other movie called Tammy instead.”
BUC: “Oh, yeah. I know it well – Debbie Reynolds. ‘…Wish I knew, if he knew, what I’m dreaming of. Ta-am-my, Ta-am-my, Tammy’s in love.’”
CRAIGNITO: “No, goofball, a brand new Tammy. Totally unrelated… and totally horrid. I usually order movies for my friend, but she doesn’t remember this movie any more than I do. As I said, ‘hexed.’”
BUC: “No, Mr. Hex, ‘you are not what you think you are, but what you think, you are.’”
BUC: “As the Wizard of Og so lovingly, so joyfully, so truthfully points out, ‘You are Nature’s Greatest Miracle.’ Did he not tell you that all your problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise?”
CRAIGNITO: (sheepishly) “Yes. But disguised as evil?”
BUC: “Don’t give me that crap, Harpo, I know you watched Maleficent at your friend’s house. Was she evil?”
BUC: “Look again – deeper – and tell me what you see. Look for the seemingly coincidental.”
Craignito: “I see… I see… I see succulent lobster, shrimp, and crab — dripping in warm garlic butter.”
CRAIGNITO:“I see it! The coincidence(s)! You know how I was wondering what topic to write my Week 15 post about, when all of a sudden Ben Franklin shows up out of the blue with a major role in our Week 15 MKMMA webinar?””
CRAIGNITO: “As you well know, Buc, it was just one week prior that Michael Burns decided to begin our Neothink Mentor call with quotations taken from Poor Richard’s Almanac, written by none other than Ben himself.”
BUC: “Yeah. And you decided to include a short Ben Franklin biography in your follow-up Neothink blog post, didn’t you — that you borrowed from where?
CRAIGNITO: “The Electric BEN FRANKLIN. The same website, Mark used to give us the 13 virtues.”
BUC: “Right. That’s clue #1. What else?”
CRAIGNITO:“I went to check what’s going on with Netflix just now, when what to my wondering eyes should appear?”
BUC: “A miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.”
CRAIGNITO:“People who liked Maleficent, also liked these movies – and at the top of the list is… is… is… Franklin.”
BUC: “Sounds like a combo of inexplicable things to me, cup cake.”
