Shire Society Declaration

 

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED witnesses to the lesson of history — that no form of political governance may be relied upon to secure the individual rights of life, liberty, or property — now therefore establish and provide certain fundamental precepts measuring our conduct toward one another, and toward others:

 

FIRST, each individual is the exclusive proprietor of his or her own existence and all products thereof, holding no obligations except those created by consent;

 

SECOND, no individual or association of individuals, however constituted, has the right to initiate force against any other individual;

 

THIRD, each individual has the inalienable right of self-defense against the initiation of force;

 

FOURTH, explicit voluntary association is the only means by which binding obligations may be created, and claims based on association or relationships to which any party did not consent are empty and invalid;

 

FIFTH, rights are neither collective nor additive in character, and no group can possess rights in excess of those belonging to its individual members;

 

We hereby declare our commitment to peace, individual sovereignty, and independence, and join the Shire Society.

Robert DeMott  It seems this is the way I have always tried to live my life.  Do not do any thing to any one you do not want done to you.

The only way I'd sign that is if every member swore an affifavit that they have read, in it's complete entirety, the following blog;

By the way, I grew up in mass, and dreamt of owning a home in NH. If it's become inhabited by people like all of you, who REALLY NEED to get a friggin' clue, my dream has been killed by every one of you.

DO NOT respond to this msg until you have seen what's REALLY HAPPENING in life, and are WILLING TO ACCEPT it is true.

That's when you can respond out side of unknowing ignorance.

Here's to education and revived dreams.

Your posted blog attempts to operate within the current establishments laws and procedures by doing so you are consenting to be bound to them or presuming they are applicable to you. All I will say on that matter I'd the deck is stacked against you and if you find a loophole they change the laws and procedures as loopholes are discovered. Only another psychopath can think he can beat a psychopath at his own game. The current system relies on your presumption of applicability and your fear of your own mortality to uphold their laws. What is being declared here is an independence from that system predicated on the principle of do no harm, cause no damage and that nothing is binding without consent. If everyone agreed to your demand they would simultaneously be contradicting this declaration.

It is an honor to sign my name to a document that has clearly been drafted by an individual, of high consciousness, well versed in Natural Law. I pledge to Live my life in harmony with both The Non Aggression and the self defense principle this document invokes.

May Truth, Liberty, and Love be bestowed on all humankind, especially though in harmony with the divine understanding of freedom this document implies.

Because liberty and freedom is not a "belief" to be foisted on others as some think it is (see posts...yikes!) and is actually a way of life and a way to have a true civil society where all *voluntarily* work together (and separately) to accomplish goals and fulfill dreams without stealing from one another by force or threats I am pleased to sign this declaration...

I live in NH, and I'm not to thrilled about out of staters coming in to try and foster their beliefs on everyone else. Of course we all want to live free (and we do in this great country!), but we also need a strong government to make things fair and liveable for everyone. I don't want someone opening a chemical dump next door to me, so I support zoning and environmental regulations. I don't want drunken bozos walking around with AK47's so I support reasonable gun control laws. I want good cultural opportunities for myself, my family  and my neighbors, so I support well funded public libraries, museums, and of course schools. The most liveable and wealthiest countries in the world are ones with a strong, well funded government - like Sweden, Denmark, etc. Countries with weak governments are generally a mess. That's how civilization works. I agree there is way too much corruption in our government, but much of that corruption stems from the very wealthy manipulating the government for their own ends. Listen to Bernie Sanders, one of the few politicians who has the guts to speak out against the real evils of democracy.

@TomZootsi We are just working within the system like everyone tells us to. Don't get upset if we play the democracy game and happen to win.

I do not need to sign this to be free, nor to know that I am free. I was born free, it was then that men claiming to represent me, sought to enslave me.
