You're correct (although you sound like Jordan Maxwell! haha), and what you and I have said (or rather, asked) may be able to reconcile this matter
for a few of the more intelligent people here.
I think it's all the semantics involved that freak people out. They assume they are living in the conceptual "country" and when they "figure out"
that their child like notion of a country is entirely skewed then they don't know what to think except that it's "wrong" and shouldn't be. They
create a solid line between country and corporation - when there is no line to exists in a (especially) capitalist country.
The problem is ignorance. People don't realize that towns and cities are, in fact, corporations. They are "incorporated." This doesn't mean they
are businesses in the normal sense though. They certainly DO business, have budgets, have administration, employees, etc... Do they not? Does your
city employ people? Do governments employ people?
Do cities, counties, states, countries.. do they EMPLOY PEOPLE???????
Most people believe that corporations and businesses are mutually exclusive when they are not. A "corporation" is just the lawful combining of
resources, land, people, etc.. or what have you. It creates an artificial identity to legally do business as. To incorporate simply means to combine
into a single entity. This is how the law works! This is how YOU do business under your name! To make it more clear, if you do a number 1 and number 2
at the same time, you've just incorporated your waste into a single flush (hopefully! haha)
People are essentially corporations as well, and as such, corporations have the rights of people. Under law, the United States is a country,
corporation, and person. Your childhood notion of a "person" is not what the law states. The law is man-made of course. The United States is really
rock, water, soil, land, etc... duh... it's not a damn epiphany to realize you are made out of flesh, bones, skins etc... but it does make it look
like you're not made out of a brain if you go around spewing this crap at people and claiming some type of conspiracy to control your life!
I'll confess, people who call you crazy for doing it (who don't understand why) are just as crazy/ignorant as the people spewing the nonsense. Side
A is saying "It's a corporation!" side b is saying, "It's a country you fool!"
This is why I think LogicalSolution made a great point and is pretty much on the money. Do you guys know what a VENN DIAGRAM is? Look it up if you
don't, and apply it to the country/corporation thing. Look at the two extremes.
