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.

HONOR & DISHONOR

This is the most important aspect of the law. In law, "Honor" or "Dishonor" is a process. It is what is done in response to a presentment. Throughout the entire process you must be in honor. This applies to everything you do in the legal process. To act with dishonor toward the other person is the highest sin in any system of law.

High Principles

"In ancient times, honor was the manner of being that we now describe as having integrity. In plain language, an honorable person avoids deception whenever possible, treats others with respect and sticks to her beliefs no matter how others think or act." ~Carla Joy
"Personal integrity; allegiance to moral principles." wordia.com
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~Martin Luther King, Jr. 
"The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught." ~H. L. Mencken

Carmine v. Bower, 64 A. 932 “Silence is a species of conduct, and constitutes an implied representation of the existence of facts in question, and the estoppel by misrepresentation. When silence is of such a character and under such circumstances that it would become a fraud on the other party to permit the silent party to deny what his silence has induced the other party to believe and act upon, it will operate as an estoppel.

United States v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187 “Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their rights, due to ignorance.” (Paraphrased)

The original 13th Amendment of our National Constitutional, which stated: “If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive or retain any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.” Laws for the Organization of the Territory of Michigan condensed, arraigned and passed by the fifth legislative council, (1833) Source – Michigan State Library. The above noted original 13th Amendment specifically addresses the condition now in existence in America today. Whereas, Bar members referencing the British Accreditation Registry, the Temple Bar, the four Inns of Court, and particularly the Middle Court presume to do business secretly and deceptively in re commerce and as regards the financial well being of the public generally. This state of affairs is clearly address regarding who has the burden to prove jurisdiction within the Clearfield Doctrine as regards the private nature of such practice.

U.S. , 203 US 1 (1942). “The right to the enjoyment of life and liberty and the right to acquire and possess property are fundamental rights of the citizens of the several states and are not dependent upon the Constitution of the United States or the federal government for their existence.”

Bennett v. Boggs, 1 Baldw. 60 (1830). “Statutes that violate the plain and obvious principles of common (Natural) right and common reason are null and void.”

Hurtado v. United States, 410 US 578 (1973) “It is not every act, legislative in form, that is law. Law is something more than mere will exerted as an act of power…Arbitrary power, enforcing its edicts to the injury of the party and property of its subjects is not law.”

Thompson v. Smith 154 SE 579. “The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by a carriage or automobile, is not a mere privilege which a City may prohibit or permit at will, but a common right which he has under the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.”

Kent v. Dulles , 357 U.S. 116, 125. “The right to travel is part of the Liberty of which the Citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment.”

Mugler v. Kansas, 123 U.S. 623, 659-60. “Our system of government, based upon the individuality and intelligence of the Citizen, the state does not claim to control him, except as his conduct to others, leaving him the sole judge as to all that only affects himself.”

“WHEREAS, THIS STATE” is a DE FACTO FEDERAL MUNICIPAL CORPORATION under the NEW JUDICIARY ACT wherein the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA presumes Equal Footing as a de jure STATE.

The issue re the use of the terms of art by the legislative branch within the several states identifying their legislative acts as in “this state” goes only to “Definitions” re the statute . . . should the act(s) not rise to malum se within “the state” and thereby give notice of a substantive connection to the subject matter as applying to some form of physical damage or substantive contact going to an actual controversy and a real party in interest . . . the statute has no mechanism granting authority to reach the Sovereign.  Capital crimes therefore are prosecuted by and through the substantive statute as being within “the state” when charged.

Generally in a court proceeding you may challenge the implied charging statute by noting: “The prosecution has apparently only defined the statute as appertaining in”THIS state”, however, it appears the prosecution has failed to charge (certified”) the statute as with in “THE state” of Oregon.”  This is why the avoidance to certify charging documents going to malum prohibitum . . . as there can be no verifiable charging documents issued and no real party in interest can come forward . . . whereas, the statutory prohibition is only defined.

I agree with the "Shire Society Declaration" completely. I am curious why the map is barren in Northern New Hampshire. I have considered eventually buying land (for off-grid) in that area and am concerned that freedom lovers are mostly in Southern New Hampshire. I would appreciate clarification from a NH resident. I signed the FSP a couple of years ago and will make my way up there ASAP.

@Andrew Cart Not everyone puts themselves on the map, but the North Country is a low population area.  People up there tend to be very independent and are very disconnected from what happens in Southern NH.

Relying on anyone else or any government to ensure your own sovereignty is a huge mistake and will most likely be your downfall. You will find peace and security knowing that at the end of the day your actions speak for themselves. Peace doesn't require laws, rules, or force. Less governance = less problems.

The entire system of taxation is a form of involuntary servitude, in particular, the income tax, all of us work a large part of the year for Uncle Sam, the essence of slavery, after all, is forced work for someone at little or no pay.

So, I am curious: how would I have remedy if I bought a product that harmed me (like that drug company scandal two or three years ago), or if my neighbor started a pig farm and his effluence wound up in my water? This document offers no form of redress.


MelanieJohnson4
MelanieJohnson4

It doesn't, but that's not what it is designed to do. In a free society you could handle these issues however you saw fit.

If your neighbor is destroying your property with his pigs then he is initiating force against you. You can respond however you see fit. You can stop him, get reparations, or handle it however.

I'm not sure which drug scandle you're talking about, but if someone sold you a product that was more harmful or risky than advertised then you could do the same things listed above, since they have harmed your property, your body, through fraud. Also, in a free society there would be no FDA to ban safe drugs and give a false sense of security to dangerous drugs.

In a free society there would be no free public courts. (Or maybe there would, I don't know what the market would do. But there would be no monopoly on them upheld via theft.) But you would be able to hire an arbitrator to hear your case and/or a security company to enforce your rights and protect your property.

Any other questions please respond here or message me.

I LIKE THIS. LIBERTY DOES NOT NEED DEFINITION UNLESS WE AGREE TO THE LIMITED IDEAS OF LIBERTY. There is no need to define it and we do not need to reference the Constitution either. Freedom is itself natural and not abated except by those who define it specifically. This i call the Tru reality Life IS. Government is only created as a means of controlling freedom, and therefore, does not fit the reality of true Freedom, like the Sun Shining. I am in, as president of seeocean.org support Natural Environment and this Shire declaration.

Problem with this document is that it fails to recognize the origin of liberty and its precepts originate from God.  Individual liberty is the free gift of the Sovereign God to His creation and each person being created in God's image has inalienable rights from God and are free to exercise their God given liberty without any interference or molestation by government, groups or individuals.

JasonKuzmak
JasonKuzmak

@Skip77 It's probably because not everyone believes that, and to narrow the document down to that specific set of beliefs would invalidate the declaration's usefulness to whoever does not hold them. Insisting that everyone accept certain religious claims of the origin of liberty if they sign the document would be in exact defiance of what it stands for, whereas leaving mention of any gods out can potentially be all-inclusive, even allowing those gods to sign it if they wanted.
