(Sept 11, 2011) – Kimberly E. Stone, founder of POSHGLAM.com, is a Visionary, Philanthropist and Social Media Entrepreneur. She sees the citizens of the United States of America as role models for Civil Liberties and democracy and feels a personal responsibility to those who have come before, including those impacted by Sept.11th, and sacrificed for the rights and privileges we hold today.
Though the constitution is old and somewhat a work in progress, she doesn’t see its core components as malleable. Stone received a mailed copy of the constitution upon joining the American Civil Liberties Union, and sees it as a symbol of the core components from which our country was founded. Stone’s belief system supports the idea that every American law is based on Natural Human Rights, and believes the constitution serves as a blueprint for the foundation of our freedoms.
Stone also believes the convergence of philanthropy and goodwill should be fused into every facet of our lives, which compelled her to join the American for Civil Liberties Union, Because Freedom Can’t Protect Itself. Though she’s not one for strict versus loose constructionism and feels most laws are created with the best interest of the people in mind. She stands firm on her belief that the interpretation of the laws is where beauracracy begins. Stone actively supports adherence to all of the Natural Human Rights the ACLU protects.
Never afraid to stand for what’s right: Human rights, Gay rights, Civil rights and Woman’s Rights, she is excited about the all encompassing umbrella they fall under, civil liberties, and believes there’s an adherent need for constant attention to ensure continuing equality, fair consistent justice and maintaining a balanced democracy.
In the “Conceptualization Age” we live in, concepts drive innovation and ideas disrupt the world more than ever before. Stone believes technological advancements will change the world, making it more flat, and she believes in checks and balances in the laws to ensure they are properly designed and implemented paralleling the constitution. This pushed her reasoning for joining the ACLU. The internet is a community that utilizes a virtual environment and is ever evolving, as well as the laws. A resonating quote that sticks with Stone, is one by the late, great, Dr. King:
“We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” It was “illegal” to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country’s antireligious laws.”
