The Sempronian Manifesto

This series contains two parts, one a set of constitutional reforms and the other a policy platform. These are what I believe would fix a lot of the problems in America today. You don’t have to agree, and I welcome all constructive feedback. This project is not meant to be incendiary nor otherwise disrespectful to the US Constitution and principles. It is a good-natured thought experiment by someone who’s a big fan of history, political science and philosophy. I hope to inspire a thoughtful discussion of possible remedies for the issues facing our country, nothing more and nothing less.

This series is named after Tiberius and Gaius Sempronius Gracchus, the two great reformers of the Roman Republic. The two respective parts bare the first names of my inspirational figures, the combined set is titled after their family name, the Sempronia.

The Gaian Constitution

This is a directory of my constitutional reform project, a multi-part series where I propose an alternative government framework to better reflect the needs of a modern state. The name “Gaian” is a tribute to Gaius Sempronius Gracchus, a progressive reformer and my favorite politician of the Roman Republic.

The Tiberian Platform

This is a directory of my policy reform project, a multi-part series where I propose a better philosophical and socio-economic framework to better suit the needs of the people. The name “Tiberian” is a reference to Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus, a brave tribune of the plebeians and one of the most important politicians of the Roman Republic.
