My research into the historical role of CAI can be found in the 2008 The Foundations of Homeowners Associations and the New America, “Part II, The National Lobbyist for HOA Principalities.” Part II is subtitled, “Community Associations Institute: Dominating the Emergence and Acceptance in America of a Quiet Political Revolution in Authoritarian, Contractual Private Local Government.” It was primarily based on the 2005 book, Community Associations, partially funded by CAI and ULI and written by Donald R. Stabile.
I concluded Part II with,
In short, CAI has been setting itself up as the national private authority, a sort of Board of National HOA Governors, on local community governance through the adoption of uniform planned community acts that perpetuate the current anti-American HOA governments. In effect, the super, privatized agency to replace the US Constitutional system of government.
This was written back in 2006, before the 2008 revision to an eBook and the 2010 addition of Part III.
The subsequent acts and actions by CAI include the behind the scenes support for imposing and promoting the top-down, “one law fits all,” UCIOA laws for adoption by the states. Its subsequent acts and actions also include positions taken before state legislatures over the years that support and reinforce the denial of due process and the equal application of the laws for HOA members. And there is CAI’s performance as presented in CAI continues to ignore the Constitution for the HOA constitution that clearly makes the case for CAI’s rejection of and secession from Constitutional government.
Some may call such behavior, seditious.
I don’t think I got it wrong.
Seditious: “Given to or guilty of engaging in or promoting sedition.”
Sedition: “Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state.”
