I believe peace is only possible if we change the current legal system. This change will be concurrent with changing many other systems including our financial, educational, medical, and technological systems.
I said yesterday that I would begin painting a picture of what our world will look like after those changes.
I will do that.
However, there is a time-sensitive topic that I need to focus on today.
I start with a comment left on an article from a couple days ago.
Fellow blogger, Elisheva Levin, reminded me that I had left out the word “liberty” when I described common law as allowing each person unrestricted actions provided “he or she does not harm the life or property of another person.”
She wrote, “To restrict someone’s liberty is to restrict her ability to make important choices that sustain life and allow her the benefit accrued by the use of her property. One might say that to restrict liberty could well deprive a person of both property and life.”
The rest of her comment is worth reading. I encourage you to take a moment to review what she said. Here is the link.
Elisheva’s words are especially relevant when we consider what has happened with Bill Brockbrader, aka Bill Wood, over the past few days.
He has been deprived of liberty.
He has been arrested on federal charges.
Bill says his charges arise from a law that was enacted in 2006 and then applied retroactively to a 1998 charge. If this is accurate, the current charge violates the basic principles of common law. It also violates the constitution.
Bill claims he was found innocent in state court and now plans to establish his innocence in federal court. He intends to fight the charges in an effort to establish a path that others can use to fight unconstitutional charges.
You can hear the story for yourself in this YouTube video. Bill participates via phone from where he is incarcerated.
There are several interesting tidbits about this story.
In Bill’s earlier interviews, he explained that he faced court-martial while he was a Navy Seal. Even though he was sentenced, he was given the option to continue his job of bombing soft targets in Iraq or serving his sentence. He chose his job.
Bill goes on to imply that he was told he could live a normal life after his military career as long as he didn’t talk about his experiences. However, if he began to talk about what he knew regarding the internal workings of the Navy Seals, his paranormal training, and his experience with looking into the future via Looking Glass technology, he would be subject to harassment and possible arrest.
He remained hidden and quiet for several years until he was contacted by what he calls “member of the White Hats.” They vetted him and, when he passed the test, they promised to watch his back in exchange for him being a spokesperson for them.
This promised protection gave him the courage to come forward and share his story. He started by doing a couple of interviews with Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot. He continued by doing shows with Wolf Spirit Radio and producing his own YouTube videos.
Reaction to his work ranged from overwhelmingly positive to harsh personal attacks. Even though I haven’t written about most of the drama, I have closely followed the story.
With Bill’s arrest, it seems the White Hats may have let him down.
Bill says otherwise.
He says his White Hat contact told him as soon as the arrest warrant existed. At that point, Bill debated between fleeing into Canada, living underground, and fulfilling his role as spokesperson or facing the charges.
As I said earlier, he believes he can do more good for the peaceful transition by fighting the charges and creating a legal path for others to follow in combating unconstitutional issues.
He waited to be arrested.
An arrest warrant doesn’t necessary mean that one is instantly arrested. However, in Bill’s case, Federal Marshalls took him into custody within twenty-four hours of Bill learning about the warrant.
It appears that someone has the intent to silence Bill, even if doing so involves violating constitutional rights by depriving him of his liberty.
