David posted yesterday about the new gun ban at the capitol in Virginia.
I commented: “to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them” must be a personal, rather than a societal, mandate.”
Thomas Dowling commented “Diplomatic Carry is a new level of autonomy, of personal sovereignty” and provided a link to the concept of Diplomatic Carry.
This caused me to consider how one might use the concept of Diplomatic Immunity to “to assume … the separate and equal station” that I alluded to above.
I propose the following:
within the geographic boundary
claimed by the United States
and the several States therein
Whereas the national government known as the United States and the local governments of the several States have evolved to disregard the constraints of their original authority and to disrespect the enumerated rights of individuals born to and living upon the soil within their borders;
And whereas such individuals have patiently petitioned legislators for redress of grievances suffered from this evolution without success and without hope of remedy;
Many have declared their homesteads to be common-law sanctuaries operating as freeholds within the hostile environment of a foreign legislative domain.
Longstanding and clear instructions posted at the boundary of such properties indicate a resolve to live unencumbered by the external State, despite the practical fact that the individuals living therein are coerced by force of arms to make periodic feudal rent payments to the surrounding State.
To avoid potential conflict between the sovereign claim of the external State, and the rejection of said claim by individuals living within a freehold, any and all travel, commerce and individual intercourse across the boundary will be conducted as a Diplomatic Mission of the freehold.
Individuals conducting Diplomatic Missions into territories outside the freehold will carry a Diplomatic Identity which (1) testifies the bearer agrees to engage in no common-law crime while outside the freehold, and (2) instructs agents of the external State to grant the bearer immunities afforded to foreign diplomatic personnel.
The US Department of State provides instruction to law enforcement on the respectful treatment of Diplomatic and Consular Immunity.
Included in the above document are examples of the type of Diplomatic ID cards that one might create for the Diplomatic Missions of their freehold.
