A man accused of several highway traffic offences was given a trial date, whether he wants to appear for it or not, after telling a court Tuesday he wouldn't show up at any time.
A member of the FreeMan of the Land society, Mika Rasila, who prefers to be known as Mika of the family Rasila, was joined by a handful of supporters at the King Street courthouse who don't believe in following Canada's laws.
Rasila said outside the court that as FreeMen, they believe people lose rights when they enter "government contracts," and have voided them all. That includes no longer carrying ID

I wish it was that easy in America. I'd be all over a "Free man" group in a heartbeat.
However, seeing as how you are forced to get IDs and sign contracts for just about everything here, it is quite difficult to live a normal life without the "government contracts".
I hope for the best for this man and his group. It is always a when the good guys win.

You have to be able to make sacrifices.

I do agree that a lot of laws are ridiculous ... but essentially we do need laws to curb the Law of Anarchy - this is a first state that all humans descend into when the Law of Man is not enforced.
Eventually a balance is found when Laws are once again passed and enforced, and has been a desirable yet unnatural and unbalanced state since humans existed.
