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.

  16. “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you!” – ” Love your Creator and love thy neighbor as thyself, upon these two Commandments rest the whole law!”

    If “we” really and truly honored and performed the above statements in our daily lives, we would have no need for websites like this! But, since good and evil minded men and women co-exist together in this world, we (who desire to live in harmony) must come together and find a common bond, which is nothing more than the desire to be “FREE” men and women from the tyrannical notions and motives of oppressive psychopaths!! Let freedom ring!!

  18. The only way we have a chance at a nonviolent, deeply peaceful society is to embody nonviolence every day. I embody nonviolence and anarchy in my life everyday, and can’t succeed without my community. I am humbled by The Shire’s work and our community. Soon I will be in The Shire, and peace will emanate from within. Nothing can shake me, nothing can shock or disrupt this peace. I pass it on to those around me. They can threaten, hurt, abuse or even kill us, but they can’t get all of us or our descendants. I am here not for revolution- to repeat the mistakes of the founding fathers- but for resolution. I am here for radical, peaceful coexistence.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.
