Do not let those who are not members of the government make claims
which disempower you, and somehow magically empower the government. It
is ignorant fear mongering, and is simply false information being
It began with your parents giving you YOUR name.
Before it ever existed on any piece of paper, it was given to you. It
existed then, and you were the first owner, holder, and user.
The act of registration does not ''give it' (hand over) to the Crown.
It is true the act of registration establishes an association, which the
identifier points to. It is used as an identifier and establishes
that there exists a person with certain rights and duties. This does
not mean that its use will always identify that same person. An ‘arrow
sign’ does not create a destination. It can point to it, if it already
exists, but it does not create one if it doesn’t. A sign saying ‘Carson
City 20 Miles’ planted in the middle of nowhere will not cause a city
to magically pop up 20 miles distant. The city must exist first, then
you can point to it.
The government has never claimed they own
our names, and when asked will deny it. Why disempower yourself by
claiming that what is clearly YOURS, belongs to someone else, when they
have never made that claim? Nanny CAN’T FLY, and your name is not
somehow their magical property.
Both the name and the human named, pre-existed the person created by registration.
When you were a child your name was one thing. Your parents used it,
your schools and friends used it. The government used it. Now that you
are an adult, those people who once had authority over you, can still
use your name, but they can’t claim that because you are using the same
name, they have the same level of authority over you. It is ludicrous
to claim otherwise. Of course, if you went back to school as a student,
AND MAINTAINED YOUR ASSOCIATIONS, they would have that same level of
authority. The name itself does not create the association.
Saying “I am not that name!” to avoid duties and responsibilities when
there is still an association, is very childish. One can keep their
name, and change their associations, thus their duties and obligations.
My name is Robert Arthur Menard. That is what my name was when I was a
child of the Province. It is what my name is now that I am a
Freeman-on-the-Land. Using my name does not automatically make me one or
the other. Although others have the same name as I do, I own mine, and
no government agent or operator has ever tried to claim any ownership
over it. I have heard others who claim the government owns our names,
if they were used for registration, but they have never brought any
proof. People in the government have clearly rejected the concept that
they own everyone’s names, and do not act as owners of them. But still
people ignorantly spread this concept.
The confusion arises
because of a basic logical fallacy. The name is used to identify
someone, and is one thing, and is used to point to their status or
associations. Their person. Which is another thing. Which in most
cases identifies a child of the Province. A ward. Use of the name
does not establish the association, nor does denying the name break it
if it already exists. Denying the name when there is still an
association is very childish. It is akin to closing one’s eyes and
saying “You can’t see me.”. The goal is to change our associations so
that the name (the exact same name) no longer points to a bonded child
of the Province, but to a Freeman. You do not accomplish that by
abandoning the very thing you were given as an infant by your parents to
facilitate that. Just because a name is needed to establish an
association, does not mean use of that name establishes one.
I wanted to disempower the people of the Freedom movement, I would
share ideas that are untrue but are seemingly justified on the surface,
and cause them to abandon those things which could actually empower
them. I would try to get them to abandon their names and persons, as
they would then be abandoning their wealth others are holding in trust.
I would get them to believe the name itself creates the person and
evidences an association, instead of just being an identifier thereof. I
would present to them a wholly useless tactic, like denying being ‘the
name’, which does not change their status as a child or ward, merely
identifies them as a petulant, ignorant and belligerent one. I would
not get them looking at the associations created, and how to change
those, while keeping their name. No I would ask they abandon that
first. Many would fail to distinguish between the person (the rights
and duties created by association) and the name (the identifier of the
person created with the association) and will try unsuccessfully to
avoid the latter by abandoning the former. They will be like travellers
on a road, who think they can avoid a distant city by simply taking
down the sign which points to it.
If you believe that the
government owns your name, and you have NO PROOF that the government has
ever made that claim; if you believe you can avoid duties and
obligations established by associations merely by abandoning the name
but not changing your associations and status as a child of the
province; if you do not distinguish between a person and its name, or a
thing and its name; then you are not a force of empowerment for the
people. The ideas you share are harmful, false and wrong.
When you were registered as an infant the government put you in diapers.
Good thing for an infant, but not needed as an adult. You can remove
them, but you need to learn to use the toilet and wipe your arse. You
need to be able to prove you can do that, and Magical Nanny will stop
trying to nanny you. However removing your diaper all by yourself,
(abandoning your name and rejecting the person) without learning to use
the toilet and wipe your arse, (establish a new person with greater
rights and duties as a Free adult) means you will still be seen as a
child, and Nanny can and will put you back in a diaper, lest you start
smearing your faeces all over the common walls.
some absolutely ludicrous arguments floating around, the idea of
government owning our names being near the top of the list. It would be
so easy to prove. Simply make a public claim that you own your name,
and see if ANYONE disputes it, and if they don’t, establish sole
ownership as a function of law. You will find no one in the government
will dispute that claim. They will not seek to claim ownership, for the
simple reason that they do not own it, and they do not need to own it,
nor have you accept it, in order to hold you accountable to the person
identified by it.
Deny the name all you want. The association
which identifies you as a child of the province will still be in
existence, and your tactic identifies you as someone worthy of being
treated as a child. You will be shooting yourself in your own foot.
Stop making claims that disempower yourself. If the people in the
government want to claim they own your name, LET THEM DO IT! Do not do
it for them like it is a fait accompli.
