Even a bad lawyer would be able to demolish it's arguments
on 11 March 2016
This book will probly be the Bible of the Sovereign movement as it attempts to clarify personal rights of the individual in society when confronting magisterial authority.
It's OK for an alternative read but I could not see any of its points or arguments holding up in a court of law and is defiantly not a book to find loop holes and get out of jail cards within the law. Even a bad lawyer would be able to demolish it's arguments.
Many who are into the Sovereign movement seem more intent on obstructing justice or simple annoying the law with pithy observations of the exception or meaning of the law. Arguing that you don't have to step out of your vehicle or give your name on your birth certificate because it is not a legal document is majoring on Miners and if it were attested would be ripped to shreds by other legal precidents.
The law can be much like a game of chess with truth having little relevance to a defence but rather a good lawyer who knows the legal exception or precident of the law. Appealing to vague arguments like those in this book will probly only get you a night in a cell for your cheek.
