I’m seeing the Magna Carta mentioned a lot lately by people who
wish to remain free persons who are exempt from the decisions of
a tyrannical Government intent on taking away their freedoms and
that’s fine. I’m glad people are seeing what is happening in 2020
is not about a virus but about loss of freedoms and total control.
A brief history of Magna Carta
In the 13th century in England King John began taxing his subjects
for pointless wars abroad, extorted them with heavy fines and had
people imprisoned for victimless crimes. He used his local sheriffs
to confiscate private property. According to the book
“The History of the Office of the Sheriff” by Harry Buffadi he
deliberately chose “men of harsh demeanor for the post”.
King John’s big mistake was demanding scutage (money paid in
lieu of military service) from the barons who had not joined him
in battle. The barons rose up in 1215 and civil war broke out.
The rebels led by baron Robert FitzWalter gained control of
London. King John was forced to make certain concessions to the
nobles and on June 15, 1215 he accepted the terms included in a
document called the Articles of the Barons. Four days later, after
further modifications, the king and the barons issued a formal
version of the document, which would become known as the
Magna Carta. The benefits of the charter were reserved for only the elite classes, commoners still did not have a voice.
Of course there is also the English Bill of Rights (EBoR) but both
Magna Carta and EBoR amount to the same thing, they are documents
by the nobles for the nobles not for common people. And this is what
many forget or just can’t see and bring up their rights according to
Magna Carta, EBoR and Common Law.
What is Common Law?
From the legal dictionary:
The law developed by the common law courts as being common to all the
Crown’s subjects, as distinct from equity.
Under a common-law system, disputes are settled through an adversarial
exchange of arguments and evidence. Both parties present their cases before
a neutral fact finder, either a judge or a jury. The judge or jury evaluates
the evidence, applies the appropriate law to the facts, and renders a judgment
in favor of one of the parties. Following the decision, either party may appeal
the decision to a higher court.
People like to say that common law is do no harm but that is common
We are all born free.
Our parents take away that freedom when they
register our birth but our birth certificate is only a piece of paper
just like Magna Carta and EBoR. If you think those bits of paper
mean anything, have any significance or really have any power then
you are not and will never be free.
It’s very simple, if you want to be free, be free.
Being free means being free from Governments, Royalty, barons and nobles. Free from taxes, money, control and slavery.
You cannot be free and continue to live in a corporate world.
If you want money, if you want your mobile phone, if you want
your rubbish collected, your sewerage dealt with, your electricity
supplied, if you want holidays and a car you have chosen to live
in a corporate world governed by their rules.
Belief that what is written on a 800 year old bit paper can save you
from a corrupt, rogue government, police force and court system
is a waste of energy. Sure, at the moment bringing up common law
or Article 61 of Magna Carta may confuse some police officers and
stop them in their tracks but it will do you no good in the long run.
To have real power you have to learn to say “NO”. When people
insist that you wear a mask say NO. When vaccines become
compulsory say NO. If police try to slap a fixed fine on you say NO.
When a magistrate tells you to pay a fine say NO.
When you are still a slave saying NO can mean that you lose all the
things that are important to you, money, home, the illusion of
freedom but when you are truly free corporate entities cannot take
anything from you and you will certainly not end up in a court for
not following Governmental orders.
