Should We Consider Changing One Word in the Declaration of Independence?

If Thomas Jefferson was alive today, he would probably agree to the change of the word “men” to “humans”. The often quoted line is, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men(humans) are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” One can probably assume that Jefferson was writing for King George to read, and for him to realize that we were creating a government that gave equal rights to all humans including people from different lands and religions.. He wanted the King to understand that there was not one class over another.

Through the years, the protectors of our liberty, the judges, congressional leaders, and presidents have agreed that women, former slaves, the elderly, the disabled, the rich and the poor, and a whole group of humans commonly known as the LGBT community, should be treated as equals. The government was created with the checks and balances to provide that level playing field. Jefferson and the other writers of those founding documents knew that people from all areas of the world would want to come to this country, if there were equal opportunities for all..

In conclusion, it would be wrong to physically alter the documents. A more reasonable approach would be to explain that Jefferson was using the word men” as a euphinism for all “humans” on the earth.


We are one step closer to creating an Age of Inclusion when “All Lives Matter” becomes the accepted way for people to think of when that tiny voice in your head talks to you.. Before we can reach the Age of Inclusion, we must all realize that all humans are born with the some degree of the three instincts in them. That we are shaped by the environment we grow up in is what makes us different.

That most of the laws we created to have a civilized society, were generally the same ones in every country or tribe through-out the world. Murdering, stealing, cheating and slavery were outlawed in every tribe or nation through out the world. Areas of disagreement are LBGTQ, what type of government, role of women in society, human and territory rights.

Why do we need Good Religious Leaders?

The simple answer to that question is that they are in large part responsible for the great world we have today. They are responsible for recognizing that all humans have basic instincts that need to be harnessed by rules of law. They taught the masses how to behave in public, to maintain a peaceful society, to be charitable, to be forgiving of one’s own acts of misdeeds, and to provide comfort to the people having distress in their lives. Throughout history there are many examples of good religious leaders and many misguided ones. Here is a short partial list of some of the good ones from the past and present that I know about; Buddha, Moses, Jesus, Reverend Billy Graham, Pope Francis, and Joel Ostein.

To make the list of bad religious leaders, they had to have preached intolerance of others. By this I mean speaking ill of other religions, or of not accepting differences in humans that are deemed normal by the majority of the human race, or have abused their congregations by sexual impropriety, or have preached violence on others in order to make their religion the only way to gain a place in heaven.

An Outline of my Philosophy that should be taught to all Philosophy students

The Three Natural Instincts of the Human Race
By John H. Wormser

Why is it important to understand that all humans have these same three instincts that control our minds?

1. Once people from all nations recognize that we have these same three instincts in our minds, we can change the laws of all countries to offer the same protection from people that have lost control of one or more of these instincts.
2. From understanding that everyone is born with these same three instincts,
it will be easier for humans to realize we must work together to end drastic poverty, starvation and unequal treatment of genders, races and economic classes. We will be able to create a world with one very large democratic government with a bill of rights. This will be the first step to end all wars between nations and regions.
3. With this knowledge, we can try to teach people to understand what instinctual force is driving one’s misbehavior, and help them try to change their thinking. The mind can and will be uncontrollable at times, therefore we will always need police and militaries. History has shown there will always be people for one reason or another that do not follow the rules of mankind.
4. It is important to understand that we humans cannot stop our unconscious mind from directing our actions. As stated by Reza Habib, a psychology professor at Southern Illinois University, “You can’t turn on and turn off certain activities of the brain. It’s an automatic physiological response.” By admitting that humans cannot stop their unconscious mind from thinking and thereby controlling our actions with direction from our strongest instincts. My theory is that man sometimes defeats that problem by using all or some of these three solutions. The solutions that we humans have developed;
1. Prayers to God by practicing religious people. This includes people of the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hinduism and other religious faiths. As we know by now from some of the headlines of today, that not all humans can control their minds even with a strong religious belief system.
2. Daily meditation practices of some cultures that people use to calm and try to corral the unconscious instincts of our minds.
3. Atheist that practice the golden rule, “Do to others what you want them to do to you.”

What are these three instincts?

The three instincts are;
1. The Will to Survive
2. The Pleasure Instinct
3. The Herding Instinct

Why have we made laws and continue to make laws to control our instincts?

Since the beginning of time many basic laws were conceived to reign in people with too large of an instinct to survive in their unconscious mind. Laws were made like thou shall not steal and thou shall not murder. In some cases people with a too strong of a will to survive instinct caused them to greedy and steal or murder. Many more laws were and are still being made to protect less strong willed people from the harm that too strong willed people would do to them without these laws to stop them.

There were and are many laws made to protect people from those that are controlled by their pleasure instinct in their unconscious mind. There are laws that try to protect people from rapist and pedophilias, alcoholics and drug addicts, and all sorts of con artists. Those are just some of the types of laws that had to be invented to try and control people that are blindly led by their pleasure instinct.

There are laws that were made to control people with too strong a herding instinct in their unconscious mind. Laws like you cannot act violently against other people that are not of your religious belief. You cannot harm someone if he is not in your gang, or is of a different race, or even a fan of an opposing sports team. It is important to realize that this instinct is powerful in that it can cause people not to think rationally about whom and what they believe in when following an evil person or organization. Some people can be lead into some pretty damaging acts of violence or be made to follow some antiquated rules.

Why is it important to have all three instincts in your body?

All three instincts provide pleasure to your mind. In order for one to have a feeling of normalcy one should be aware of what instinct or emotion that is stimulating you most when you make a decision.
It is only problematic to society when a person becomes overwhelmed with one instinct and does not use his other instincts. Examples;

The people with a stronger Will to Survive Instinct than the other instincts are usually leaders, and in modern times a strong will to survive people are the hard workers who typically earn a lot of money in order to live with a contented mind. When they become obsessed with their own Will to Survive they can and will step on others and break laws to get their way.

The people with a stronger Pleasure Instinct than the other instincts are usually people with problems. Their unconscious minds are controlled more by thoughts of doing the things that give them the most pleasure. People that have problems with drug and alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, sex addictions, welfare addiction, overeating and laziness are the people usually guided in their minds by their strongest instinct the pleasure instinct. People with a stronger pleasure instinct tend to be less successful and have problems with addiction habits.

The people with a stronger Herding Instinct like to be a part of a group. They have such a strong herding instinct that they sometimes act in negative ways. Sometimes people with too strong of the herding instinct prevents them from being open minded and unable to accept new ideas. They won’t change what they believe in. Sometimes this is to the detriment of society due to the inability to compromise or change their way of thinking to allow other people to let live. They can be very successful economically or not.

Why do we all have some of these instincts in our minds?

The three natural instincts differ in strength in all of us and rise and fall at different ages in all of us. Everyone has these three instincts in them at all times during their lifetimes but sometimes we use only one instinct in our decision making. It is hopeful that one day people will think about what instinct is in charge of their mind before they make important decisions.

As part of our Pleasure Instinct, most of us have sexual desires that appear in nearly one hundred per cent of humans. Controlling our sexual urges is usually learned in adolescents and in early adulthood. Losing control of our sexual urges can happen at almost any age in both men and women. Nearly 100% of the population lets the Pleasure Instinct take over th1eir mind occasionally, not only with sexual urges but also when we over indulge in eating, alcohol, or just taking a lazy day.

The Herding Instinct is usually introduced to us from early childhood to the age we become independent adults. This could be as small as accepting And loving your family, to loving to belong to your church. Rarely are people duped enough by a strong leader into doing things that are inherently wrong, but there are many examples of that happening.

The Will to Survive is in all of us to a certain degree. The people that are he most strong willed are those that fiercely hold on to life. They are the ones that would survive the longest in desperate situations. They also are the ones that would become the worst among us in times of a choice between saving themselves and saving another person.

What is the objective of this paper?

1. To bring the world together by getting people to understand we all have the same instincts in our minds controlling our unconscious mind. We should recognize the instincts in order to try control our actions.
2. To introduce this theory to the world
3. To get this theory further researched and then taught in schools.
4. To get people to join me in spreading this theory.

What is the logic that proves that people have these instincts?

1. The Will to Survive Observations; Negatives and the Positives;
A. There have been innumerable cases of people trying to do anything to survive a desperate situation proving people have a will to survive.
1. When drowning people trying to jump on their rescuers’ head to prevent themselves from drowning.
2. Pushing people aside to get out first while escaping from a crashed airplane.
3. Not wanting to share supplies in a desperate situation like when one is lost.
B. People getting up everyday to be productive in order to eat and therefore survive is part of the will to survive.
1. Being very creative in order to do things better to make more money. The strong motivation comes from your strong Will to Survive in your unconscious mind instinct.
2. Working long days or many jobs to make money in order to be in a strong survival position. The fact that you have money in the bank satisfies your will to survive instinct.

2. The Pleasure Instinct; Negatives and the Positives;
A. The fact that some people commit sex crimes is proof that there is a strong pleasure instinct in the human mind that can control ones’ actions.
B. The fact that too strong control of the mind by the pleasure instinct leads to actions like laziness or drug and alcohol addiction.
C. It provides the means for a continuation of the human species.
D. It is the part of the human mind that makes us feel happy and good about ourselves in the moment.

3. The Herding Instinct; Negatives and Positives

A. The fact that too strong an affiliation with a group leads to the inability of a person to make a logical decision that is contrary to the leader of the group.
B. It is natural for humans to want to be a part of something and it is a
net positive part of our brains. It makes us happy in the moment.

Only man was given the ability to write the laws down that protect us from people with instincts that are out of the normal range of behavior. Examples of the laws created to control these instincts;

With the Will to Survive laws were made like thou shall not steal from one another. Too strong of a will to survive in people make them greedy and all sorts of laws were made to protect less strong willed people from the harm that too strong a will to survive can cause. (Even murder)

There were many laws made to protect people from those that have too strong an amount of the pleasure instinct coursing through their minds. There are laws to try and prevent people from raping and committing pedophilia when their pleasure instinct is in control of their thinking. There are laws to arrest drunk drivers that are more concerned with drinking for their personal pleasure than the safety of others.

There are laws to control people with too strong a herding instinct too. Laws like you cannot blow up other people that are not of your religious beliefs. Or you cannot harm someone if he is not in your gang, race, or religion.

I personally believe that it was God’s plan to create these instincts in all animals and then use religions as a vehicle to invent, write down, and teach the laws to humans. I believe we must keep religion alive in society for many reasons. First it gives or teaches structure to our offspring. Religion often is the first introduction to the laws of man. Secondly, religion often gives hope in times of need. Thirdly it can change people’s behavior by giving them a goal to end up in a better place. Fourth it is a place where people can congregate and organize charitable deeds for others. Lastly it reinforces on a regular basis good social and moral behavior.
If one absolutely cannot believe in a Supreme Being, they can turn to meditation to try and stem their loss of control. They can slow themselves down by meditating. They also should be guided by the Golden Rule and understand the importance of obeying the laws of the world.
Lastly there are drugs one can take to slow ones’ mind down in order to be a productive member of society. Usually they come with therapy sessions.
I call this new philosophy the Philosophy of Inclusion because if all the people of the world were taught to understand and try to control their unconscious instinctual thoughts we would have an almost perfect world.
We need to do three seemingly impossible tasks to get to this what I would call the Age of Inclusion.
1. We must get some world leaders to accept lees power over their citizens.
2. We must get religious leaders* to accept this philosophy and stop controlling the minds of millions by using fear tactics on people. (like if you don’t attend church regularly you will not get to heaven or if you sin and don’t confess your sins you will go to hell or if you drive a car on the Sabbath day or if you don’t allow women to go to school and learn)
3. Everyone should be taught that before they do something criminal, illegal, or immoral they should try to bring to their conscious mind what instinct is urging them to do something they know is wrong.

*Religious leaders will be the ones most fearful of this Age of Inclusion, but they shouldn’t be concerned. We will always need leaders to teach our children moral behavior and lead congregations in charitable functions. They will always be needed to remind us to be humble and to forgive others. They will remind us that the most often repeated verse in the Bible is, “To be kind to strangers.”

John H. Wormser
Once again I am not a licensed professional in any field relative to this philosophy, but I strongly hope this is studied and it gets accepted to move us forward to a peaceful world.

An example of how the Three Natural Instincts control your actions.

“Near the end of my time at the Compound of Daveed, the leader David Daveed was always yelling at me.  He was so foreboding. Even though some of the other men were taller than him, they often remarked how they felt he physically towered over them, when in fact he did not. His voice was strong, and it was that forceful intimidating voice that seemed to give him power.  When he wasn’t yelling at us, he was very witty and charming. He was able to talk in voices of various accents. For instance when he told stories about his civil war ancestors he would talk in a deep southern accent. Then he would switch to a British accent as he talked about his even earlier ancestors who had come to America from England. It was always fascinating to see him work an audience. It was like he put everyone in a hypnotic state so intense that his listeners were ready to follow him through the gates of hell.”

Julie Paten began to shake. Her mind was still fragile. It had been barely a month since her escape. She vividly remembered how she had hidden in the trunk of a car that had gone into town for supplies. That she had overcome her claustrophobia in order to escape was a tribute to how strong her hatred was for the way she had been treated. For the past six months she had been passed around sexually like a prized piece of meat. It was done solely at the discretion of David Daveed. It was that way with all the women. They were treated like rewards for the men of the compound. She was so thankful that she had accidentally read what the philosopher/psychiatrist Justin E. Henry had written, and his writings had explained why she had allowed herself to join the misguided band of David Daveed followers. And it had given her the strength and inspiration to escape.

Her widely shown press conference where she explained the influence of Dr. Henry’s writing that had helped give her the courage to escape was one of the reasons Dr. Henry had accepted her as a new patient. These days with the success of his natural instincts theory, he did not have the time to add new patients.

Justin E. Henry, M.D. sat next to her listening intently to her story of the escape. He did not want his patient to slip back into the deep depression that she had when he first started treating her. He broke her train of thought.

“Julie you must continually remember to stay in the present,” Justin said.

Suddenly she let out a scream so shrill that it rattled the walls of his small consultation room.

He quickly leaned over toward the couch she was laying on, almost afraid to touch her for fear she might attack him. Softly he said, “No one can change the past; you must accept what happened and move forward.”

After awhile she stopped shaking and looked at him, “I am so ashamed of how I acted. I can’t forgive myself. I wish I was Catholic so that I could just ask Jesus to forgive me. Maybe if I had been raised Catholic, I would have never been in that hell in the first place.”

Justin said, “Religion can offer you that comfort if you are a true believer. It is certainly a viable alternative and a good reason for the existence of it. But no matter how faithful you are there are times in a person’s life when your natural instincts are so strong that they can sometimes override your moral upbringing. Those instincts produce hormones in your brain that give you pleasurable feelings that can overtake you. And  when they do, even the most religious people fail. There are many examples of even the most religious beings being overcome by their natural instinct of the sex drive or pleasure instinct as I have named it.”

Julie nodded her head. She understood that he was talking about Catholic Priests who had misused their status to abuse young people in their church.

Justin continued, “Forgiveness of one’s past misdeeds is a main healing part of nearly every religion and it should be a part of a non-believers’ as well.”

Julie Paten looked at the handsome mustached Doctor and said, “My parents weren’t into religion and never pushed me toward it. I guess I don’t want to start now. ”

Justin knew that getting her to ask God for forgiveness was not an option at this time. Later he thought he would be able to introduce her into his Moral Therapeutic Deism group. But for now he pushed on with his new philosophy, “We are all controlled by our natural instincts. The logical rules of man mostly gleaned from our religious histories helps us keep from letting our natural urges totally consume us.  And sometimes in peoples’ lifetimes when Mother Nature instructs us to act in a certain way, we do exactly what our instincts tell us. We lose control of our actions. That was the case when you went to that compound. You were sexually attracted to David and the instinct I call the pleasure instinct was controlling your mind. Also what I arbitrarily number as the third instinct called the herd/family instinct was adding to your pleasure instinct convincing your mind that being a part of that group was good and comforting. Finally after you felt you were being harmed by the situation you were able to follow your other natural instinct I call the will to survive and you found the strength to escape.”

She seemed to calm down as she thought over his philosophy and said, “Your assessment of the situation seems too simple. What makes you think those ideas are correct?”

Justin hated that question. He never liked the answer he gave. He looked at the pretty twenty-eight years old brown eyed brunette, once again thinking how lucky she was to have escaped from the mind controlling evil cult leader David Daveed.

Justin narrowed his thick eyebrows and gave his standard answer. “I was blessed with a logical mind. I have studied philosophy and psychiatry all my life and these are the best answers to the questions of why that people have asked me throughout my career. Somehow one of these three instincts takes control of a person’s mind and it often times leads to breaking of either a persons’ own moral code or a manmade law. These instincts relate to every human problem except one,” he paused for a moment but continued before she could ask what it was, “true mental illness from which there is no reasonable explanation of a person’s actions.”

She thought about the answers for a moment before responding, “So what you are saying is that the three natural instincts in all of us try to control our actions?”

“Yes. They can and do. Yet through the invention of civilized society forged with rules mostly founded by religion, we for the most part harness these instincts. We are all different because we have stronger amounts of the different instincts at different ages in our lives. And we are all raised in different environments that shape the instincts we are  born with. We also have different strengths or might one say quantities of one instinct at different ages. For example you might be more easily persuaded by your pleasure instinct as a teenager to do something that you find pleasurable to do rather than making a good decision to do what is necessary that you do. Remember the three basic instincts is provided by nature or God depending on your belief system and all humans are controlled by one or more of these instincts.”

She began to tremble and weep. “Why did I join his society in the first place? What the hell was I thinking? I am ruined for life.” She broke into a woeful anguished cry that made the hair on the back of his neck stand up straighter than an Army cadet.

Justin kept an even voice, “No, you are not ruined at all. You have experienced a life lesson that’s all. You will keep that lesson as an experience that you learned from.”

She looked up with big tears in her eyes, “But why did I do it in the first place? I was raised better.”

Justin said, “Please try not to let your mind stray to the past. “ He looked at his watch and said, “We can start off with that discussion at the next appointment in two weeks. Just remember your will to survive helps to keep you in the present moment and that is the best place there is in the world. But in case your mind can’t do that on its own, take the medicine I prescribed. Do you need new prescriptions for the two medicines?” He mentally thanked the wonderful scientist who had discovered the two drugs that were able to calm her mind.

“No I don’t think so, they both still have refills,” she said as she sat up and gave an awkward smile.

“You remember one is for as needed when you get anxious and the other take every evening before you go to bed.”

As they stood at the same time to go back into his main office she asked, “What does the evening drug do again?”

“It connects the synapse in your brain cells that help you stay in the present,” he said giving her the short explanation.

He opened the door from the consultation room and went to his old style beige wooden desk in his main office. The desk had been made at the turn of the twentieth century, and was fully restored and modernized with stainless steel glides that made easy access to the drawers.  He accessed his smart phone and saw he had a message to call his wife. He tried to call her back, but, she didn’t pick up. Her voice mail message did not sound urgent so he went to the door and let in his next patient. He was completely oblivious to the mistake he had just made.

This briefly explains what can happen to an individual when she acts without thinking about her Three Natural Instincts. For more information on this subject read more pages of this blog site or go to













Why everyone should learn and use the Three Natural Instincts to control their own instincts. Today the Pleasure Instinct

Equally strong in all our instincts is the Pleasure Instinct. Most of our laws and in some places customs were created and implemented by our governments and/or rulers to control our Pleasure Instinct.  Most people think that the pleasure instinct is only about the sex drive of people. We now realize that indulging your Pleasure Instinct means more than sex. It also means indulging yourself in drugs, taking too many lazy days,  over-indulging in food and generally thinking too much about pleasing yourself. Freedom allows that we have these privileges until they become too burdensome for others. Examples include females or males (like priests) that use their power to force themselves on others. Some people have had to use prayer or meditation or in some cases masturbation to bring pleasure to themselves in order to calm their minds.

All  our welfares laws were enacted to keep people either on welfare because they truly need it,or they are gaming the system. if they are gaming the system our laws were created by our Will to Survive instincts and if they our compassion from the Herding Instinct guides our laws.

Modern day humans now realize that we have to be forever vigilant of the forces of the Pleasure Instinct in all of us. For more info go to

What is the most important instinct to Republicans and to Democrats?

In general Republicans are strong in the Will to Survive Instinct, and Democrats are mostly Herding Instinct thinkers. Republicans by instinctual nature worry about higher taxes and the high cost of government programs that feed , clothe, shelter and provide good health-care to the Medicaid and Medicare clients. Democratic voters seem to be more sympathetic to the plight of poor people.  The people with a larger than average Pleasure Instinct are usually non-voters.  In the coming Age of Inclusion people will be able to understand the strong underlying emotion that is pulling them to one side or the other. With this new understanding, it will lead to compromise in money matters and eventually to the Age of Inclusion where followers will  accept that man should not be divided by race, religion, or economic class. To learn more about the coming Age of Inclusion please go to my blog site

He was a Nervous Man

He paced the room looking at his wife who suddenly looked old to him. In fact, he felt like beating her with a stick. He knew he wasn’t the type to beat his wife, he was more the throwing up kind of man. That didn’t make him a weaker  person, or did it? Focus, he told himself. He had read all the books about not worrying about the future and to stay in the present, but he could not still his mind. Once again his mind raced off to a few more predictions of how the meeting with his lawyer, his accountant and the government tax agent will turn out All he could think of was financial doom and that the government would somehow find a way to financially ruin him.

Nervous minds like the one briefly described in the paragraph above, occur in people all over the world. Usually they are produced by people who are more concerned about their own lives and they continuously worry about the future. That would make them a person with a high degree of the Will to Survive Instinct. They are so worried about their own existence that they can’t think of anyone else. It might help  him to think that his mind was being controlled by his large Will to Survive instinct and that he should try to be more giving and charitable. (I am not saying this would be easy but we have to start somewhere.) By acknowledging to your conscious mind what instinct is motivating your actions and feelings in the moment  we should be able to hold back bad decisions.
For a more detailed explanation of what these instincts control and how we can try to harness our minds for the betterment of the human race. go to my

Why should we not listen to Louis Farrakhan?

We should never follow someone who uses his platform to divide the human race. He claims that the Jews in Hollywood use their platform to promote the LBGT agenda. And that white people in general hate people that do not look or believe like they believe.

First let me dispute the former charge. Most of the world has come to accept that people can have different sexual inclinations. The one issue that is in unanimous agreement is that children should always be protected. They should be left free to find their own sexualty and have that choice be accepted by all.
On the latter charge white people overwhelmingly have shown that they accept people of different colors and religious beliefs.
The people of the modern connected world will one day never listen to someone who preaches hatred of one group or another based on their beliefs or appearance. To read more go to my web site
