Cannibals of Freedom: The Purpose of Law - by Daniel L. Price, Esq.
September is a month in history that helps point out the purpose of laws in the United States. That is, on September 3, 1783 the Treaty of Paris formally ended the American Revolution. Also, on September 3, 1838, Frederic Douglas began his journey to escape slavery.
I am an advocate of freedom, period! Yet, when we look at laws that support freedom, and compare them with laws that deny freedom, it is revealing to note that the laws in the United States do not support freedom. Right from the beginning our constitution, in Article 4, Sections 2.2 and 2.3, requires states to return fugitive slaves to their owners. And, the Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850 levied punishment on those who helped slaves escape. They were guilty of the crime of supporting freedom of the individual.
Some of you may be thinking the 13th Amendment changed that. Really? After all, you are “forced” to pay about 1/3 of your life to parasites. So, other than for whom you are “forced” to provide, and what percentage of it you are “forced” to provide, you still are not protected by the 13th Amendment.
Today, our laws continue to deny freedom. You are not allowed to do anything with, or during your life, which is not regulated and/or taxed by parasites. I issue a challenge to anyone who can think of anything which a citizen can do without some regulation, law, or tax involved from birth to death. Our laws simply do not support freedom.
Indeed, readers of this article are violating the law when they ingest marijuana, that the State of Michigan “protects” you while engaging in this illegal activity makes no difference, you are still violating federal law. For example, I spoke to a young lady who had tubed down a river in a national forest in Michigan while ingesting medical marijuana. Federal forestry agents were in the bushes spying on people going down the river so they could arrest anyone ingesting marijuana. Moreover, if you have nearly any level of THC in your body, when you are required to give a swab sample while driving the roads of Michigan (Yes, that is coming to Michigan), you will be violating laws and subject to punishment.
One asks, so what laws do support freedom? That’s actually a very easy question to answer. One need only look to the Declaration of Independence: Law 1 – Any person who interferes with the life of another shall be guilty of a crime; Law 2 – Any person who interferes with liberty of another shall be guilty of a crime; Law 3 – Any person who interferes with the property of another shall be guilty of a crime.
From these laws, of course there would be degrees of punishment. For example, if I interfered with my neighbor’s property by negligently spilling sewage, then the punishment would be for me to pay to clean it up, and pay for any damage inflicted beyond the cleanup. Yet, if I stole property from my neighbor, then I would be liable to return the property in its original condition or pay the value of the property to my neighbor, either in cash or by my labor. As for taking a life, it would be pretty much the same depending on whether the act was intentional or negligent. I would be liable to pay the value of the services of that person to their family, and face prison time as well. And the same goes for violating another’s liberty.
Of course this article does not provide room for a complete analysis, but you get the idea. Also, it’s harder to implement only laws that support freedom. There are many people who are afraid of freedom. There are also those who wish to get away with destroying freedom for others. Only thing is, they cannot do this without destroying their own. The parasites in government are simply eager to accumulate power over others, so they are all too willing to help secure a country where the laws deny freedom.
In order to have a country that supports freedom, another law would need to be implemented. Law 4 – Any government official, whether elected or not, who interferes with the life, liberty or property of another who has not violated these laws, shall be guilty of crimes against humanity and shall either, by their choice, be put to death, or stripped of his/her citizenship and set adrift on the open sea with 3 days of food and water.
The result of failing to understand the purpose of laws that deny freedom is why The Constitution and the laws here in the United States do not support freedom. The key to understanding is that when we deny others their right to life, liberty and property, we deny ourselves those same rights. Do you support freedom?!?!
Till next month, as always, keep rolling on.
