Lessons In Law

Most people assume all "laws" are the same.

They are not.

Put aside 10 minutes and watch this video.

If it grabs your interest you may want to watch the film this was taken from.

It is called Kymatica.

Great video Captain. It's really everything John Harris speaks about tied up into 10 mins. It's a must for everyone to see. I may put it up on my blog also to get the word around.

Very interesting. I was listening to a podcast recently which was similar in it's content. Firstly, the guy said that the entire populace was declared dead after the Black Death, and courts therefore don't deal with living people but "persons" and they can be treated as salvage, ie. warehoused (in prison). His take on the matter was to announce in court that you are a living human being (using the words "the flesh lives, the blood flows") and then respectfully request remedy. As you have seen, captain, when Freemen are in court the judge often leaves then returns. This (says the guy in the podcast) is to re-establish juristiction - but this time under Admiralty law, since by declaring you are alive, you have removed yourself from his juristiction under civil law. You then (says the guy) ask not for remedy, but for "cure and maintenance" after again declaring that you are a living human being. In his capacity as Captain, the judge must provide cure and maintenance to a mariner who applies for it. The judge then leaves court again, but when he returns he is operating on behalf of Canon law, the court is no longer civil or even maritime, but ecclesastical. (The podcaster describes how the term Bar derives from ecclesiastical units of measurement etc etc) You declare again that you are a living human being and NOW also Sovereign, under God; you again ask for remedy. The court cannot act against a living Sovereign human, and the case is then thrown out. If a judge acts against a Sovereign human he is in breach of his oath, and can no longer practice law.
That was the gist of the podcast, but I can't find it at the moment, and have no idea how accurate it is.
