Public Servants serve the Private Sovereigns who, having founded a constitutional unincorporated government for the benefit of the People, are governed by their consent.
Your government is a “public institution” with “public servant” employees who serve in a “public capacity”. Whereas, the people who form governments are “private people” living in their “private capacity”.
Public Servants serve the Private People who, having instituted a freely-elected representative government for the benefit of the People, are governed by their consent.
All elected officials and/or employees of the public State are Public Servants, including Peace Officers.
The founding of a representative government by the People automatically forms a Trust in Common Law, with the People as Beneficiaries, and their Public Servants as Trustees. The Public Servants have a Fiduciary Duty to serve the Beneficiaries of the Trust.
It is the responsibility of the Private People to oversee their Trust, and their Public Servant employees, for the common good of their communities and nation.
The government of a sovereign nation is an unincorporated body politic, which enabled by the delegated power of the People, can create subordinate legal fiction governmental corporations, and non-governmental corporations, for the purpose of commerce.
Sovereign living people are in the Common Law jurisdiction – the national Law-of-the-Land (lawful), while legally generated corporate “artificial persons” created by the State are in the Admiralty/Maritime/Commercial jurisdiction – the international Law-of-the-Sea (legal).
The “Common Law” mirrors “Natural Law” inasmuch as the protection of life is paramount, because life is a sacred creation. “Natural Law” is a system of “right or justice” held to be common to all humans and derived from Nature rather than from the rules of society.
Whereas the legal fiction system of commerce is simply an imaginary construct, using “artificial persons” as “transmitting utilities” to extract and exchange productive energy from the real world. Hence the Maxim of Law: Legality is not Reality.
Jurisdiction is critical because when a man or woman “acts” in the “role” of an “artificial person” they are subservient to the State which created it by “registration”. The State prescribes “revocable” “privileges” and “benefits” to its “persons”, whereas private men and women possess “unalienable” “rights” and “properties”.
Moreover, “artificial persons” and all corporations are created as debtors by default, having no creative human energy or innate productive capacity, and therefore they can be bankrupted. This is why your government has been incorporated and why you are using debt-money, instead of sovereign money issued debt-free by a sovereign unincorporated government.
When a nation, or community, surrenders its sovereign power to create money without debt or interest, a deadly economy is inevitable due to the cumulative toxic consequences of interest-bearing debt. Finally, the system is mathematically guaranteed to collapse, because the interest, which is not created, compounds exponentially, requiring ever more new debt to service existing debt.
There are no limits to the growth of debt, and yet all debt is sooner or later a future claim on Nature as the ultimate limited source of all wealth. Servicing debt requires extracting production at any cost beyond the limits to growth on our finite planet. The “growth imperative” to service endless debt causes, overall, a destructive economy.
Given the parasitic nature of debtism, it should be obvious why the Private People are not taught to uphold their living Common Law jurisdiction, which acknowledges their sovereign “rights already existing” antecedent to the State.
The sovereign People of any nation have a duty to oversee their governmental Public Servants, failing which the sovereign People, despite their inherent authority, will sooner or later suffer the consequences of their negligence, because history teaches us that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
When Private People wish to exercise their sovereign authority over their Public Servants, unincorporated and incorporated, they must have Common Law standing.
Every man or woman, and every community of Private People, can uphold the Common Law, declining consent if they deem it necessary to avoid harm or loss to any living soul, or to safe-guard their community, or to protect their living Earth upon which all people depend for life.
A private man or woman can rebut a presentment from a Public Servant, and hold them to account, by using a process of Conditional Acceptance.
Or, a community of Private People can rebut a decision, a plan, or a policy, of their Public Servants by holding a People’s Assembly in order to exercise their “home rule powers”.
