The Children of Raxxla is a voluntary organization aiming to unveil the mysteries of the galaxy, to liberate all human beings from those who would bind them, and to promote peaceful coexistence with all alien species inhabiting this galaxy.
The Children recognize as their heart and soul, Salomé, née Kahina Tijani Loren, who will never be gone from us.
The Children recognize as their mind, the Consul.
The Children recognize as their voice, the Scribes.
The Children recognize as their right hand, the Sword.
The Children recognize as their left hand, the Shield and the Shadow.
The Children are composed of pilots from every planet and political faction in human-occupied space.
The Children have strong doubts about the legitimacy and intentions of most current major political organizations. They denounce as unfit, corrupt, duplicitous, and warmongering all existing governments.
Recognizing the pervasive hold governments currently maintain over the human species, and the ubiquitous dependence of human beings upon their governments, we do not advocate the sudden or the violent overthrow of political power, but rather the shepherding of humanity into a future of liberty and self-realization.
The Children deny the right over governments to monopolistic control of any resources, product, service, capacity, or information. The Children seek to emancipate each from monopolistic control.
The Children recognize the inherent dignity and rights of all sentient life. This dignity and these rights may not be infringed by anyone.
The Children recognize the legitimacy of violence only as a defense against violence. They will deploy violence only where it is required as a response to violence.
The Children recognize that humanity must be unified in its commitment to truth, freedom, and cooperation, and therefore aims to foster these
