Statutes are written in legalese, and considered to be the Law and must be obeyed. But this is only by the 99% of people who have had the situation distilled and ingrained into their psyche over centuries. If one examines precisely what a statute is, it can be shown that there is a choice as to whether one obeys them, or not.
It goes back to the definition: A statute is (nothing more than) the legislated rule of a society. (A society has a legislating body, and that body determines the society’s rules)
So what is a society? A society is a group of like-minded individuals who come together to deliberate, determine and act towards common goals.
How are a group like-minded and how do they come together? What are the common goals? Unless those common goals are known and published, how can an individual determine if they are like-minded?
The very first thing any society must do is to publish its common goals. That allows others to determine whether or not they are like-minded. If they are like-minded, and agree with the common goals, and want to help, they can join the society and come together. By joining a society – by becoming a member – that person is accepting the legislated rules (statutes) of that society!
One other very important aspect of any society is that it must have a name attached, such that it (actually its rules & its membership) can be referred to distinctly, such as to distinguish it from anything else.
Consequently, any society must have:
- A name
- A published set of common goals
- A set of determined legislation
- A defined membership
Now, our so-called ‘society’ has number 3, 99% of people call it the Law, but it cannot be a society in point of fact, because it does not have 1, 2 or 4. Also, there is one further very important aspect about societies, if – at some future point – a member discovers that the direction the society is heading is not what they consider to be acceptable, they should be able to leave or resign!
So, the plain facts are this. Parliament is creating (and has always created) legislated rules for a society that cannot be named, has never published any common goals (except, one could say, The British Constitution), and has no defined membership. When did you apply to join this society? Was your application successful? Have you subsequently resigned? Perhaps the most important point of all is that the legislated rules of any society only bind the members of that society, those rules do not affect anyone else.
Companies make rules, called the Company Policy. This usually forms a Handbook when one joins the Company. While in their employ you need to obey their Company rules, or be disciplined according to those rules. Once you resign from their employ, you no longer need to obey their Company rules.
Unless it can be shown, via a successful membership application form, that one is a member of a society for which Parliament is making legislated rules – and it can also be shown that you joined of you own free will, not under duress, or deception – and it can also be shown that you have not subsequently resigned – then these Statutes do not apply to you. But you have to know that, you have to realise that, and you have to be able to explain that.
The society we believe we belong to, has in fact a company policy, and that company is called UK PLC, with company number UC2279443 and its current CEO is David Cameron. When people talk about the UK they are referring to this company, not the country, the country is Great Britain.
More on this later, but note, UK PLC is bankrupt and has been since 1869.
