Is The WayTo Restore Self-Ownership As IndividualsBased on the JNJ of March 31, 2002 titled "The Absolute Sanctity Of Property Ownership" and the article by Professor Butler Shaffer bshaffer@... "Do You Own Yourself?"
For the first time, I read the above-referenced JNJ regarding Property Ownership that Ron put out last week. He told me what a powerful JNJ it was. I asked him what did it have to do with J.A.I.L. and he said I would have to read it to find out. Well, I did, and I found out! I discovered that we no longer have Government. A "usurping force" has taken over our government, and J.A.I.L. is the only way we can stop it.
Before I continue, I wish to thank Professor Shaffer for the inspiration he gave me by his meaningful article. I especially appreciate articles that are basic to Nature, because that's where everything begins. It requires close study and scrutiny of the "basics" of Life to properly evaluate developments that have taken place over time. I find Professor Shaffer's writing to be an exegesis of basic Truth which cannot be denied because it is basic to Life itself.
It is imperative, if we are to restore our Constitutional Republic, that the People go back to the "basics." Forget what you've learned from the powers that be and the media. Start from the point in life that can be proved by Nature which is Truth, Natural Law. Put out of your mind words, phrases, sayings, that you have been told means thus and such. Deal only with existential fact which is what Professor Shaffer's article "Do You Own Yourself?" deals with. If any of you haven't read it, I heartily recommend that you do. If you have read it, it deserves being read again and digested well because it is as basic a truth in life that exists, and it illustrates how far afield from truth we, as a nation, have strayed. Professor Shaffer's article is yet another way to remind us how urgent it is that we, the People, wake up to what has, and is happening to us-- ALL of us-- DAILY! And WHAT we can and must do about it!
The first thought that came to my mind about "property ownership" was ownership of land. Then I thought of ownership of any material item, such as a car, boat, house, farm equipment, --whatever. But in reading the article, I realize that "property" includes much more than material objects, and perhaps the most important aspect of all, is our rights --unalienable/inalienable rights that cannot be alienated.I explained in an earlier JNJ in discussing our unalienable (I'll use that spelling as used in the Declaration) rights, that an individual possesses those rights by birth --call them "birthrights"-- and they are as much a permanent part of his person as is his physical body --whether or not he/she allows them to beovertaken by a "usurping force."
It is at that point of usurpation where the People depart from Life according to existential fact --according to their birthrights --according to Truth, by automatically accepting as true and genuine, through brainwashing since childhood with tons of lies and propaganda, a counterfeit "life" which is not the Life to which each of us is by Nature entitled. That entitlement still exists nevertheless, however it has been overtaken by this "usurping force."
I don't find any justification in calling that force "government" because it has gone way beyond the function of government. Government's function is to protect and secure our rights. However, the force currently in place has turned 180 degrees from that role and is now trespassing upon us and stealing our birthrights, and has been doing so for decades and has gotten by with it!
That force may just as well remove an arm, a leg, a hand, or a foot, and claim it as "theirs" to do with as they see fit. The truth is, we DON'T HAVE A GOVERNMENT any more, regardless of what the current usurping force calls itself. "Government" as was instituted by the People no longer exists! Obey the government?? --we no longer have one!
And what makes this usurping force possible? Where does this force get its lifeblood? FROM THE JUDICIARY! Judges are the final say in all of this propaganda which they pass off as "law." Judges head up this usurping force that is destroying the People on a daily basis!
To those of you who have been involved in the "legal" system, how many times have you heard or read "government's overriding interests"? And where did that term originate? By the usurping force calling itself government, and more particularly, by the courts-- the judiciary, the head of the "collective monstrosities" as Professor Shaffer calls them, controlling our lives, giving the lifeblood to those "monstrosities" by the tyrannical rulings they make daily, keeping those "monstrosities" alive and well on Planet Earth.What interest does government have in controlling anything without the owners' (the people's) permission-- without the "consent of the governed"?Absolutely none! But remember, we longer have a "government" in place!The conditions people are forced to live under are FOREIGN to American government.Because of the brainwashing we've been through, causing many to believe that the power in force today is "government," people have come to believe the twisted theories, masquerading as "law," saying "Oh, you GAVE permission when you signed "the contract." The fact is, ladies and gentlemen, you didn't GIVE permission-- the usurping force TOOK it from you by fraud and deception, by twisting meanings of words (verbicide). It is not within the province of government to do that. Therefore, what is being done is NOT by government at all, but by a counterfeit power under the guise of "government."And where does that "contract" idea originate? Yes-- again by the usurping force, of course, and ultimately by the JUDICIARY --that unaccountable tyrannical usurper of power!Entering into a contract is for the purpose of receiving a benefit that will improve a currently existing circumstance. The decision to do so is up to the individual before entering into the contract. It isn't up to the government to make that determination regarding an individual's circumstances. When it happens, however, it is not an action by government, but by a usurping force that has taken over power. As Professor Shaffer states, "Such decisions can either be made by individual property owners – over what is theirs to control – or by the state presuming the authority to control the lives of each of us. When such decisions are made by the state, it is claiming ownership over our lives." The "state presuming the authority to control the lives of each of us" is NOT the authority of government.And how is that state presumption of authority made possible? By the state itself, of course, which has become part of the "collective monstrosity" described by Professor Shaffer, and ultimately by the JUDICIARY who backs up this "presumption of authority" at any cost, with impunity, by its daily tyrannical rulings.
How many times have you heard "I'm jes' doin' ma' job" when someone wearing a badge trespasses against you in one form or another? This scenario takes many forms.In the name of "doing his job" he trespasses upon an owner's property and takes whatever action he deems necessary, according to his own dictates and not according to the owner, who hired him to protect his (the owner's) interests in the first place. The "job doer" does his job in HIS own self interest-- in pleasing his superiors, the usurping force, which is being paid for by the property owner. This is done in the name of "just doing his job" which, if it were a government job, would be protecting the owner's interests, not violating them. Take the matter to court-- redress (due process of law) is not given. The scenario is repeated time and time again. Is that the role of government?
Think of the court system when reading the following by Professor Shaffer: "But not all of us choose to pursue our self-interests through cooperation with others. Cooperation can exist only when our relationships with others are on a voluntary basis which, in turn, requires a mutual respect for the inviolability of one another’s property boundaries. Those who seek to advance their interests in non-cooperative ways, create another system: politics. If you can manage to drag your mind away from the drivel placed there by your high school civics class teacher, and look at political systems in terms of what they in fact do, you will discover this: every such system is founded upon a disrespect for privately owned property! All political systems are collectivist in nature, for each presumes a rightful authority to violate the will – including confiscation – of property owners. One can no more conceive of "politics" without "theft" than of "war" without "violence."
Every political system is defined in terms of how property is to be controlled in a given society. In communist systems, the state confiscates all the means of production. In less-ambitious socialist systems, the state confiscates the more important means of production (e.g., railroads, communications, steel mills, etc.). Under fascism, "title" to property remains in private hands, but "control" over such property is exercised by the state. Thus, fascism has given us state regulatory systems, in which property owners – be they farmers, homeowners, or businesses – have the illusion of owning what they believe to be "theirs," while the state increasingly exercises the real ownership authority (i.e., control). In welfare state systems, the state confiscates part of the income of individuals and redistributes it to others."
Yes, our judicial system has evolved into a POLITICAL MACHINE that allows such usurpation of power over our property, reducing our rights under absolute despotism. This is done by saying "jes' doin' ma' job."
The Professor states: "the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution did not end slavery, but only nationalized it!" The 13th Amendment still exists as written, as are all Amendments. It is the usurping force, not the Amendment, that has "nationalized" slavery. This is a violation of the Constitution which J.A.I.L. will remedy when such violation is enforced by a judge.
The problem is "most of us refuse to insist upon self-ownership." As the Professor says, "We may, of course, choose to accept our role as state-owned chattels, particularly if we are well-treated by our masters. We may be so conditioned in our obeisance that, like cattle entering the slaughterhouse, we may pause to lick the hand of the butcher out of gratitude for having been well cared for." Yes, as another existential fact, there will always be those who run from the Truth-- choosing to keep their heads buried in the sand, giving heed to the propoganda they have been fed. Sadly, they would rather "lick the hand of the butcher."
But that shouldn't stop those of us who know better. The following portion of Professor Shaffer's article describes the basic principle underlying the purpose of J.A.I.L. "... we may decide to reclaim our self-ownership by taking back the control over our lives that we have long since abandoned. .... There is one person who can restore you to a state of self-ownership, however, and that person is you. To do so, you need only assert your claim, not as some empty gesture, but in full understanding of the existential meaning of such a claim, including the willingness to take full control of and responsibility for your life. While your claim will likely evoke cries of contempt from many, you may also find yourself energized by a life force that permeates all of nature; an élan vital that reminds us that life manifests itself only through individuals, and not as collective monstrosities; that life belongs to the living, not to the state or any other abstraction."
As the Declaration points out, it is our DUTY to "throw off such government" and "provide new guards for our future security" which we must do to restore ourselves "to a state of self-ownership." The way to "assert your claim... in full understanding of the existential meaning of such a claim" is by doing whatever is necessary to get J.A.I.L. passed in every state. Through J.A.I.L., the People will be able to realize the existential fact that "life manifests itself only through individuals" and not through "collective monstrosities" headed by our corrupt judicial system.Thus, the very apt question, "Do you own yourself?" To me, it is a very insulting thought that we are responsible for caring for our bodies-- food, clothing, shelter-- and yet another entity, a usurping force, is able to control what our bodies do -- how we provide for those necessities of life --how we live. And even more insulting is the fact that we are forced to PAY for that usurping force to take control over our individual lives.Just ponder that thought for a moment...........Take the time to THINK about it.........How absurd can it be?Do you choose to "lick the butcher's hand"?-Barbie-PLEASE GIVE THIS MUCH THOUGHT AND CONTEMPLATION. OUR REPUBLIC IS AT STAKE!
