Seven Rights for Citizen Slackers

Seven Rights for Citizen Slackers

With Notes from the Battles of Good King Boaz

by Dennis L. Boaz

About The Book

The book has two primary components. The author's creation of a universal and "enlightened" societal organizational system based on human rights and inspired by principles of consciousness found in the Hindu chakras and the Egyptian Tarot; and, the journey to write a book revealing his unique creation.

The trauma of a marital breakup leads attorney Dennis Boaz to search for self-awareness and purpose in Berkeley's New Age subculture of the early seventies; ultimately culminating in Boaz's creation of a comprehensive and balanced body of human rights. Graphically, the system is a four-sided, seven leveled, flat topped, pyramid, which Boaz names, the "Seven Rights Schematic!'

Boaz demonstrates how the schematic could logically be applied to education to add balance and comprehensiveness; to reform business ton favor the worker; and, to restructure government (after an Article Five constitutional convention) into a more democratic, efficient, and fair system of governing; one that enables all persons to express and experience their full range of potentials-their human rights.

Boaz suggests that the seven rights may be the answer to the riddle of what is sealed behind seven seals of the Book of Revelation. He points out that because of his name and astrological sign, he fits the symbolic biblical description of the person who is to "open the book and loose the seven seals thereof!'

In a period spanning 40 years, Boaz pursues the right way to present his book. He highlights "battles" between himself and different authorities in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Guahan (Guam) and Saipan, featuring Boaz's misadventurous and sometimes comical attempts to promote an early seven rights manuscript; including smoking marijuana in San Francisco's federal building and asking the Utah Supreme Court for his client's (Gary Gilmore) execution. The Gilmore episode also results in some personal and colorful anecdotes with Boaz and celebrities of the time; including Norman Mailer, Gerald() Rivera, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, Tommy Lee Jones, and Rosanna Arquette. The author sums up the seven rights philosophy: Do what you will-with love.
