One more note...Why isn't Freedom legal anyway? Who made it illegal? That is the real question here. And why is it even a necessity to legalize The
What a great question, and gets to the very heart of government and what their purpose should be. It is imperative the people come to understand the
profound difference between law and legality. A "license to kill" makes it "legal" for "James Bond" to kill people, it does not make it lawful.
What is "legal" is not necessarily lawful.
Legality is a tool created by the priest class lawyer set to subjugate the people. Legalese is the utterance of a modern day mystical incantation,
and has the same weight and force as any other mystic and their incantations. Law, on the other hand, is not of the mystical world, but of this real
We the People have allowed ourselves to confuse legislation with law, but this is not so. Legislation is not law, merely evidence of law. If it is
law, it is self evidently so. If it requires explanation this is the first sign that legislation is not law.
Unalienable rights are law. Any legislation enacted in the pursuance of protecting a right, or rights is lawful legislation. Any legislation enacted
that violates rights is unlawful. This is the simple aspect of legislation, however and unfortunately, government is not this simple. Not all
legislation has to reflect law in order to be lawful. The Bill of Rights are acts of legislation rooted in law. The so called "illicit drug" acts
are not rooted in law, and are arguably unlawful. Taxes are not rooted in law, but can be lawful, yet not always so.
Taxes are a necessary component of running a government, and for this reason legislating taxes, as long as they follow principles of Constitutional
taxation, are lawful. Outside of the principles of Constitutional taxation, taxes can be, and all too often are, unlawful.
We do not need to "legalize freedom", we need to hold those who have declared freedom illegal accountable to the rule of law. There is no lawful
authority that can make freedom "illegal", and such an act is itself, not just illegal, more importantly it is unlawful.
