How Government Theft Became Legal
September 10, 2011 in World
I have been using this section of the website to write about how a perspective of duality has led to government’s seizure of personal possessions through the active enforcement of law without judicial process. Some people would call this “theft.”
As I said previously, when government files paperwork regarding the theft, this makes it legal. I have observed that this is how things work. However, I didn’t know why it worked this way so I did some research. I was surprised at what I learned; and a little confused. I’m writing this article to help me understand.
(Since I live in the United States, this article discusses how this applies in this country. This has similar application in countries throughout the world, especially as the United States practices its policy of nation-building. In addition, it applies to those governments who have, either recently or in their past, declared bankruptcy.)
Here is what I learned.
If an act is legal, that doesn’t mean it is lawful. Law is based on Common Law and, in current history, is traced back to the Magna Carta, also known as “The Great Charter of the Liberties of England, and of the Liberties of the Forest.” The Magna Carta was one of the sources of the United States Constitution. Modern day principles of fairness, property ownership, and individual rights are built upon the Magna Carta. I call this “lawful.”
Legalities are based on the tricks of the legal system. These include regulations regarding corporations, trusts, and bankruptcy. In addition, judicial code that contradicts principles of Common Law falls into this category. In this article, I call this “legal.”
Government uses legalities when it steals individual property. From the lawful point of view, this is theft. From the legal point of view, this is the procuring of resources that are already in government control. Government, as trustee of government bankruptcy, is managing the assets of the trust to meet their obligations with the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Money Fund. In the United States, this is done via the Federal Reserve. (See the United States Section of this website for more information.)
This legal game playing makes it difficult for the average person to understand what it taking place. We observe things that don’t make sense to us because we view things from the perspective of Common Law. What we don’t understand and I believe we must understand if we are to have Peace of Mind, is that governments no longer operate by Common Law. They operate by an evolving, complex legal system.
Before we complain about this polarization, it is important to realize that we have created this situation for ourselves. It is something we believe we need to move our world to the next stage of development.
In effect, this polarization and perspective of duality creates the give and take necessary to bring us to unity. This is normal. After all, if we experience everything as unified, then nothing can be experienced as unified because we will not know the contrasting idea of duality. Said another way, the duality exists as a canvas to display the paint of unity.
Now that we recognize this challenge of the lawful system versus the legal system, I wonder if there is a better way. Do we need to take apart the legal system and go back to a lawful system? Do we need to do away with both systems and start from scratch? Is there another solution? Feel free to leave your ideas below.
