Core Purposes

Opening

The development of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc (known as “Publiks”) is governed by its sole Founder and Owner, Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, as well as a set of attendant mission-related core purposes derived from a history of division establishment further described below:

History and Impetus for Founding

During a period preceding and extending into the formation of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc and their parent company, The Alvan Ikoku Group LLC, the Founder, Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, was subject to a set of consistent, extensive, pervasive, dehumanizing and subhumanizing practices — including but not limited to discrimination, harassment, stalking, and unconsented communication, experimentation, monitoring, and spying — that entailed profound violations of the Founder’s basic, fundamental and natural freedoms, liberties and rights, confidentiality and privacy rights, and fundamental autonomy, dignity and humanity accorded and provided to citizens and residents of California, Delaware, the United States, and member states of the United Nations.*

Harassment and Surveillance
Several of such practices condoned, encouraged and entailed the public, vigilante and wanton harassment, spying, stalking, surveillance, and unconsented tracking of the Founder.
Unconsented Exhibition and Experimentation
Several of such practices condoned, encouraged and entailed the demeaning, harmful, nonbenign, public and unconsented exhibition of and experimentation upon the Founder.
Unconsented Care, Communication, Research, Training
Several of such practices condoned, encouraged and entailed the demeaning, harmful, nonbenign, public and unconsented yet supposed care, communication, education, research and training of, on and with the Founder.
Denial of Consent, Due Process and Liberty Rights
Several of such practices insisted on the denial of the Founder’s rights to consent, rights to due process, and rights to liberty.
Denial of Private Property and Private Work Rights
Several of such practices insisted on the denial of the Founder’s rights to private property (real and intellectual), rights to private ownership, and rights to private, uncoerced and unindentured labor and work, including the discriminatory and false insistence that such property and work of Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku and of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc and their series, divisions, subsidiaries, and affiliates are public or communal, are public or communal property, are under public or communal control or supervision, and belong to the public or any collective.
Denial of Private Control Rights
Several of such practices further insisted on the denial of the Founder’s rights to private control of property (real and intellectual), of labor and work, of development and employment of ideas, and of the results of the aforementioned, including the condoning of, planning for, and reliance on practices of counterfeiting, fraud, hacking, identity theft, piracy, and equivalently confusing and fraudulent activities. Such practices entailed falsely presenting to other persons alternative versions of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc including their series, divisions, subsidiaries, and affiliates as entities administered, governed, managed, operated and otherwise owned or supervised by any person other than Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, the sole Owner and Founder of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc. Such practices also entailed falsely presenting alternative versions of the goods, products, services, sites, and other offerings of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc as entities administered, governed, managed, operated and otherwise owned or supervised by any person other than Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, the sole Owner and Founder of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc. And such practices also entailed falsely posing as though other persons, beyond Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, have or deserve control, decision-making, governance, policy-making, rules-making and any other administrative, management, operations, supervision or ownership powers or rights pertaining to The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc, any of their goods, products, services, sites and other offerings, and any of the divisions, series, subsidiaries, or affiliates.
Denial of Confidentiality and Privacy Rights
Several of such practices consistently and pervasively insisted on the denial of the Founder’s rights to confidentiality and privacy, including but not limited to the practice of spying and unconsented monitoring, recording, and transmission.
Denial of Private Life
Several of such practices consistently, pervasively and literally insisted on the denial of the Founder’s basic, fundamental and human right to a private life, including to any private emotion, feeling, idea, moment, or thought.
Denial of Freedom of Thought
Several of such practices consistently, pervasively and literally insisted on the denial of the Founder’s basic, fundamental and human rights to freedom of thought, to privacy of thought, including to thinking without detection or recording, and to privacy of personal and private speech.
Denial of Autonomy, Dignity and Humanity
Several of such practices thus consistently, pervasively and literally insisted on the denial of the Founder’s basic rights to enjoy the degree, level, and quality of autonomy, dignity, humanity, and humanness provided to citizens and residents of California, Delaware, the United States, and member states of the United Nations.
Discriminatory Dissemination and Withholding of Information
Several of such practices also consistently and pervasively insisted on the withholding of basic, fundamental and necessary information from the Founder regarding the above, and thus insisted on the denial of basic, fundamental and necessary understanding of one’s circumstances needed as a basis for consent, decision-making, and the subsequent seeking, obtaining, and provision of basic, civil, fundamental and human rights. Such withholding of information occurred and was consistently and pervasively sustained while providing other persons, including those in business, education, government, and the general public, an excess surfeit of information regarding the Founder and broad access to means of conducting profound violations of the Founder’s basic, fundamental and natural freedoms, liberties and rights, confidentiality and privacy rights, and fundamental autonomy, dignity and humanity as described above.
Collusion, Targeting, Meaningfulness, Conditions
Several of the above practices also entailed collusive behavior with effects that include, but are not limited to, the consistent, extensive, pervasive and knowing targeting of the Founder and the Founders activities and movements, affairs and assets, companies and entities, plans, projects, properties and other aspects and pursuits of his life; the consistent, extensive, pervasive and knowing denial of meaningful consent or volition for the Founder; the consistent, extensive, pervasive and knowing denial of meaningful confidentiality and meaningful expectation of confidentiality for the Founder; the consistent, extensive, pervasive and knowing denial of meaningful privacy and meaningful expectation of privacy for the Founder; and the consistent, extensive, pervasive and knowing insistence that the aforementioned practices be the conditions of employment, investment, mentoring or supervision, ownership, partaking of commerce and services, work as well as living and life where they are not the conditions of employment, investment, mentoring or supervision, ownership, partaking of commerce and services, work as well as living and life for other entities and persons — including within equivalent departments, fields, industries, institutions, occupations, positions, and professions — as well as for citizens and residents of California, Delaware, the United States, and member states of the United Nations.
Discrimination Based on Difference
And several of such practices brought to the fore the place and function of human and perceived difference (including those pertaining to birth and citizenship, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, and sex) in the insistence on the above denials, sustained harassment, targeting, and ultimately discrimination as well as in their continuation via the imposition of ad-hoc, nontransparent, unconsented, uninformed and unregulated processes of voting on and competing, gaming, sporting, and toying with the Founder and with the Founder’s affairs, life, privacy, and property and via the assertion of scapegoating, targeting and vigilante collective action or will.

And furthermore, by accessing, communicating, engaging, monitoring, transmitting, or otherwise using or visiting, in any way, The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc, any areas, offices, parts, sections, or assets or properties of The Publiks Group and Publiks Inc, any areas, offices, parts, sections, or assets or properties of the divisions, series, subsidiaries, or affiliates, as well as any areas, offices, parts, sections, or assets or properties of the Products or Services, you accept and agree to fully inform the Founder of any knowledge you have regarding the above and related activities and history.
