Human, Individual Power, Energy, and Authority

The phrase and acronym (HIPEA) was developed by A Civic People of the United States, a Louisiana education corporation founded by Phillip R. Beaver et.al. in 2015. It describes each human individual's power, energy, and authority to choose to either develop integrity to the-literal-truth (undiscovered as it may be) or tolerate infidelity. The human species has the awareness and grammar to develop integrity, and the culture that encourages and coaches children to accept HIPEA (or HIEPA for human individual energy, power, and authority) may continually enjoy achievable better futures.
