Dear Lawmakers, Dangerous To Our Democracy Is The Banality Of Evil In The Workplace




Dear Lawmakers, Dangerous To Our Democracy
Is The Banality Of Evil In The Workplace
By Luis Ángel Pérez, (writing4light)

Could You Conform To Commands That Are Contrary To Widely Shared Moral Sentiments About Hurting People Against Their Will? Could You Be Induced To Torture Or Even Murder Just By Being Ordered To Do So?
Why Do People Obey An Authority’s Unconscionable Commands?

        Careful analysis of historical events and classic social psychology & behavior science experimental research, across different countries, have long revealed a multitude of social influences which cause even “ordinary” people to engage in evil behavior against others in the workplace. One of the most powerful factors identified is the implicit & explicit feedback received from superior officers & officers up the chain of command.

        When a greedy prominent person of authority & influence commands an employee to hurt others, decorates this with assurances that the employer will be completely absolved from any personal responsibility, & sprinkles it with assurances that the company itself will, instead, assume full responsibility  – what results is a bad cell that rapidly flourishes into brazen acts of abuse of power & which swiftly metastasizes to infect neighboring cells whom together cultivate a parasitic code of silence that ultimately becomes the firm wall of support & the critical artery that feeds vitality to the oppression & ailment that hampers human advancement to the detriment of us all.   

        Throw in another well identified powerful social factor known as bribery and you have what seems to be an iron clad impenetrable diseased culture operating way below human decency & way above the rational rule of law.

How Can We Effectively Cure & Inoculate Some of the Most Sacred Institutions to Our Democracy From Such Disease?
How Can We Efficiently & Effectively Produce a Positive Paradigm Shift Away From Such Irrational Selfish Desires?
 
        Well, if leaders in government are not actually guilty of false advertisement when they assert that – “No One Is Above The Law” & if they actually honor The Constitution of the United States of America – “… in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity …”, then Lawmakers can & should redeem the integrity of our government institutions by creating a clear and concise law which will completely reverse this toxic culture vigorously eating away our democratic values.

Lawmakers Should Create a Succinct & Explicit Law Which Mandates That …

(A) INDIVIDUALS, [in addition to the Institution and/or Corporation which employed them], whether retired or not, can and will be held PERSONALLY LIABLE, [personally legally responsible], for their active and/or inactive participation in carrying-out malicious acts against others & for the damages suffered by victims of such acts,
- and that -
(B) INDIVIDUALS, [including Private & Public Attorneys, Public Officials, District Attorneys/Prosecutors, Court Judges, Court Personnel, and the like], retired or not, whom fail to properly enforce such law, or in anyway obstructs the enforcement of such law, can and will be held criminally liable for their malevolent participation.

        Dangerous to our Democracy is the gross exoneration of individuals responsible for the banality of evil especially within institutions most sacred to our Democracy, [such as the education & justice departments]. Lawmakers have a grand opportunity to craft legislation to ensure that nefarious actors, including those found to display judicial & prosecutorial misconduct, can no longer be empowered & can no longer hide behind greed & the prominent & influential authoritative donors who groom them with access, bonuses, gifts, promotions, generous compensatory early retirement packages, & secret transfers to continue to spread malfeasance throughout humanity.  

We Either Stand Together Strong With Integrity or
Watch Humanity Continue To Decay From Inter-greedy?

We Can & Must Change This For The Greater Good.

Notice of Appeal To The United States Court of Appeals For The Second Circuit of New York




Notice of Appeal To
The United States Court of Appeals
For The Second Circuit of New York
By Luis Ángel Pérez, (writing4light)


        Below you will find Educator Mr. Perez’s plea & reason to appeal the District Court’s Decision to grant the DOE’s Motion to Dismiss in its entirety, [Perez, Luis A. NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT, September 26, 2017, four (4) pages].



        Over two (2) years after Educator Mr. Perez’s EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT against the New York City Department of Education, DOE, (aka Board of Education, BOE), was filed in the United States District Court Southern District of New York, [Perez v New York City Department of Education: Case No. 15–CV–7156 (LAP)(PAE)(KNF)], said Court ruled in favor of the New York City Department of Education, (EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT “DISMISSED”, September 15, 2017).

        For the foregoing reasons, because the DOE/BOE unfairly owes Educator Mr. Perez an excessive amount of money for time already worked, because Educator Mr. Perez was unfairly pushed-out of the DOE/BOE weeks prior to his ten (10) year employment anniversary which would have secured his pension for his family, because of the rampant persecution & intentional infliction of emotional & physical distress which has directly resulted in the collapse of his health, because of the defamation to his character, because of the baseless allegations which have effectively tarnished his employment record, and because of the rampant disparate treatment & discrimination which continues to plague in the New York City Public School System, [for example Educator Mr. Perez was employed for almost a decade in a NYC Public School named Amistad, where Latino Students, Parents, & Educators are incredibly segregated from their peers, (i.e. over 85% Latino Student Enrollment), & unfairly deprived from fair essential resources & equal justice], and for other previously mentioned important and relevant reasons –

Educator Mr. Perez Respectfully
Petitions the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit of New York
for a Redress of these Important Public Interest Grievances.

        The District Court of the City of New York had the jurisdiction, the power, and the grand opportunity to allow for such serious public interest EMLOYMENT DISCIMINATION COMPLAINT to be fairly litigated before the Court & a Jury &/or in some fashion help hold Public School Officials accountable for violating Human & Constitutional Rights.

        Instead, the District Court opted to reject such important public interest EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT and, in such way, managed to project the District Court’s partiality in enforcing The Rule of Humanity & The Rule of Law – for all humans.

“The True Administration Of Justice
Is The Firmest Pillar Of Good Government”

        We hope and pray that the Honor of the United States Court of Appeals For The Second Circuit of The City of New York will, this time, truthfully administer justice and, in doing so, redeem such eroded pillar to what has the potential to be an even greater government to ALL of the humans of these United States of America.

        Below you will find Educator Mr. Perez’s plea & reason to appeal the District Court’s Decision to grant the DOE’s Motion to Dismiss in its entirety, [Perez, Luis A.

Bullying In Our Schools Begins With Our Leaders




Bullying In Our Schools Begins With Our Leaders

By Luis Ángel Pérez, writing4light


Why is it that school leaders have to wait for

THE ERUPTION OF RAGE
&
Media Exposure

before they actually change Their posture
&
begin to fix Their stage

so that our school age humans
can feel & even perhaps actually be
“safe”?


“Look, a loss of life is a tragedy. There’s no two ways about it.
My heart goes out to everybody there.”

“My job is to see –
(A) how can I relieve the pain that they have right now, and
(B) to do the investigation to ensure that
if there’s something we could have done differently
then we’ll do, definitely, in the future.”

Carmen Farina, New York City School Chancellor,
Interviewed on Eyewitness News, September 28, 2017


NOTICE THE OPTICS

Her, “(A)”, was expressed in a slow seemingly sympathetic pace & tone,
abruptly followed by a rapid shift in demeanor when asserting her, “(B)”.

Her, “(B)”, in contrast, was expressed nonchalantly & in a faster pace,
as if the solution to the problem is little & “that simple”.

- See 4 Yourself -




        Perhaps the School Chancellor can relieve a whole lot of pain for New Yorkers by simply owning the fact, right now, that she, along with her administrative, investigative, & legal teams, [and whatever wealthy elitists have them tightly bound as pocket puppets], all actually condone, in our schools, a culture of –

(A) Bullying &
(B) Nefariously Faulted Investigations.

        Perhaps the School Chancellor can relieve a whole lot of pain for New Yorkers by simply admitting, right now, that she leads a destructive force which covertly maintains zero quarrels in –

(C) Ignoring Important Fact-Findings,
(D) Lying Under Oath,
(E) Suborning Perjury,
(F) Obstructing Justice, &
(G) Violating the Human & Constitutional Rights of Some of the Most
Vulnerable & Disenfranchised Groups of Humans in New York.

        Perhaps the School Chancellor can relieve further pain for New Yorkers by embracing & using, right now, her newly unveiled candor as the mark for the start of her administration’s emancipation from special interest groups & corporations in the way which has been so damning to our children & to the future of the entire human race.

        Perhaps the School Chancellor can relieve even more pain for New Yorkers by helping, right now, to transcend – from the typical arctic cut-throat business model to a real sanctuary for advocacy, support, empathy, hope, fairness & equal justice for all – our Department of Education, aka Board of Education; notoriously known for a checkered past of corruption, racial discrimination, segregation, intellectual oppression, and the like.
Discourse which they vehemently fight, history which they rigorously hash, conditions which they’re interested to rehash. 


Perhaps @ Last Such An Honorable Light She Will Cast &
Lead Us All To Sing Along With King; The Now Famous Hymn –

“Free @ Last! Free @ Last!
Thank God Almighty, We Are Free @ Last!”

Mere Minimus Mindset




Mere Minimus Mindset
By Luis Ángel Pérez, (writing4light)


“Get out Comey!”
“You’re not our homie!”

“We Shall Not,
We Shall Not Be Moved.”

“James Comey represents an institution
diametrically opposed to the interests of Black people
domestically and abroad.”

The Howard University Resistance Movement, (Los Angeles Times, Friday, September 22, 2017).



“I love the enthusiasm of the young folks.
I just wish they would understand
what a conversation is.
A conversation is where you speak and I listen.
And then I speak and you listen.
And then we go back in forth.”

James Comey, (Los Angeles Times, Friday, September 22, 2017).




Insult to all “young folks”,
& all those,
whom occupy their Parental & Academic Circles.

Through no fault of our own,
our story must be told in bold.

For we speak, speak, speak, & speak,
& are habitually met with frantic deletes,
to keep us off of our feet;
far beneath ill sheaths;
below the mere minimus that you see.

Our texts & sounds,
historically & now,
met with frowns & hounds.

Our harmonic articulate songs,
traditionally & presently,
sold as dissonance to embolden,
the need for choke-holds.

Is this where you believe I belong?
Have I said or done something wrong?

For we speak, speak, speak, & speak,
of our intimate genuine narrative,
that is,
conventionally & currently,
shellacked & glossed with disparagement.

For we listen, listen, listen, & listen,
to messages riddled with belittlement.


What are we missing?


Is it truly that we don’t under-stand?
- or -
Is it fully that we are wanted way under;
deprived from ever taking a stand?


A conversation with you? On what?
The racism fart choking our hearts,
notoriously met with fervor brazen darts,
the mere minimus of time after which the topic is brought-up?


“Stop! Moving Forward …”, only cement-block-slower,
code for recycle shackle.


For far too long you’ve pegged us wrong.


Speaking, speaking, speaking, & speaking,
for far too long; no one’s listening.

That’s why I can’t be believing,
that you’re surprised when “folks” of my kind,
begin twitching,
to the construct of your own design,
& all which it brings to fruition.


All we’ve ever done is Listen.


Mind, Body, & Soul Strengthening,
unfortunately to some, all this is threatening,
instead of dancing, celebrating, & embracing,
that which benefits the entire human condition.


You’ve created this mission.

Conversations, for so long,
to which you vehemently refuse to …

Listen,

and yet,
mindlessly expect,
your posterior to be enshrined,
for us all to be kissing.


What are you missing?


To try to bring all of this to a simple bind,
here’s what “young folks” just wish that you would know.

We don’t mean to be dissing,
but to your, “mere minimus”, scope of mind,
we have, are, & will continue to be flipping & tripping.

To the subtleties that surround
what comes out of your mouth,

We Always Listen.
