The people need a reawakening, a new rebirth, to remove the blinding shackles of conditioning and indoctrination  by the CAI School of HOA Governance, causing it may be argued, institutionalized HOA-Land to function as “captive agencies” of the School’s teachings.

“Blaming the wolf will not help the sheep much. The sheep must learn not to fall into the clutches of the wolf.” Gandhi. 


Boards of directors need to be educated and reoriented on HOA constitutionality relating to violations of due process and the equal protection of the laws,  because 1) the national lobbying entity, CAI, has indoctrinated boards of directors, the legislators, the courts, and the public with its CAI School of HOA Governance program creating the culture and climate  for the HOA-Land Nation within America that contains just lip service to constitutional questions, and 2) HOAs are a form of local government not subject to the Constitution.  

This indoctrination, by teachings of The CAI School, of boards of directors and all HOA members  prevents them from recognizing and accepting the true nature of HOA reality.  Indoctrination “is the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically.”  Since the teachings are all that the indoctrinated ever see, they assume the School presents a true picture of HOA-Land. The actual reality!  NOT SO!

For example, CAI in its amicus curiae brief to the NJ court,

“In light of these statutory, contractual and common law standards protecting the interests of community association members, they need not claim constitutional protection from the conduct of governing boards to exercise their rights with respect to the associations.” (CAI amicus brief, Jan. 3, 2013, Dublirer v. 2000 Linwood Avenue Owners Assn, N.J. Docket 069154 (2014).).

And in the report to the South Carolina General Assembly,

“In order to provide accurate and readily available resources to educate homeowners, board members, and interested persons about the duties and responsibilities of property ownership in an HOA community, the General Assembly . . . to seek reliable and unbiased information available from private entities . . . and provide for published and online documents and programs offering HOA education . . . .”  (“Study On Homeowners Associations”, Luke A. Rankin, Chair, South Carolina General Assembly (December 18, 2015).

The Plan Toward Restoring the HOA Model of Governance calls for both a systemic restructuring of the HOA legal scheme and the need to reorient the BODs and legislators. The long ignored and inexcusable violations of constitutionality that continue to harm members and the greater communities across this country must be exposed, understood and corrected.  

The idea of the Continuing Homeowner Education & Reorientation Series is to find a way for the indoctrinated BOD and members to come into the “light” and attain enlightenment from the School’s conditioning practices.  If they were to do this, they would be able to turn and see the reality of HOA-Land for what it is.

CHERS will provide this needed opposing voice.

One answer to the threat of demagogues and rule by the “mob” in a democracy, the Founders suggested, a second fundamental bulwark against demagogues needed to be created: an educated populace.

Thomas Jefferson argued that general education was necessary to “enable every man to judge for himself what will secure or endanger his freedom.” Jefferson noted, “if a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
