Happily the collapse of my ability (or patience) to absorb all of this lunatic gibberish has been almost exactly matched, at least in Canada, by the collapse of the movements spewing it out. When I started posting on Quatloos Canadian Freemanism was in full flower. The gurus had wondrous untested theories that they guaranteed to gullible followers would result in freeloading lives of no work and unlimited free money unlocked by their understanding of law. All it took was the correct magic rituals that only the gurus were astute enough to formulate. But to get the money they had to eventually shift from Youtube videos to confronting the establishment in court. That's when it all went very badly. The first big trial testing theory in real life was the trial of the Nanaimo Three who attempted Menard's big crowd-pleaser that anyone could quite legally be a police officer. This ended up with three criminal convictions. I attended and wrote up the trial.http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9388
For a while I was so busy attending so many trials that I actually had to do triage between them; Chief Rock Sino General's trial or Charles Norman Homes? But the litigation results were brutal for the movement. Without exception all of them lost with some, like Dean Clifford, ending up with significant jail time. On top of this the entire Freeman movement was met with overwhelming public hostility. They'd expected, again like your British idiots, to be looked on as geniuses bringing justice and prosperity to the masses. Instead they were quickly perceived as sometimes violent irrational freeloader trying to scam the system with bullshit.
The majority of Freeman followers were, like most of your British idiots, there for results not because of actual belief. So when it was apparent that that they just couldn't follow some magic ritual like the three/five letter scheme and sit back while the money poured in it all pretty much collapsed. The devotion of Freeman followers to a Canada with true (as they saw it) liberty for all ended as soon as they realized that in order to forward their agenda they'd actually have to take personal risks.
It was, no matter how the gurus dressed it up, always about the money. The core Freeman belief was that they were entitled to all of the benefits that Canada offered them while they were not required to contribute anything towards making these benefits possible. Work? Pay taxes? Those were for suckers who couldn't see how you could scam the system. Charles Norman Holmes and Bernard Yankson went to court demanding their right to their birth bonds (free money from the government) and of course lost. I was there reporting it. Bernard was my first trial report;http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9597http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9683&p=235096
And Wally Dove just cut out the birth bond bullshit entirely and went to court demanding $300,000,000 on the basis that he didn't want to work which meant that the government had to give him whatever he felt was an adequate amount to compensate for his lack of employment income. He had a grandiose idea of what was adequate to live in Canada;http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9418
It reached its peak, for me, with the Poriskyite tax evasion scheme;http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=10250
This resulted in many, many tax evasion trials and convictions. Since Russell Porisky, the carpenter who thought the entire scheme up was a local boy, many of the trials were in the Vancouver area and attending those kept me very busy for a number of years. Vancouver was an extremely target-rich environment. It's all on Quatloos. However these trials are now done and the Freeman/Sovereign movement is totally burnt out apart from a few fanatics.
But, just when everything was collapsing here in Canada you Brits took over the mantle and the UK Quatloos forum exploded with Tom Crawford and Peter of England.
Tom Crawford decided not to pay his mortgage and ended up losing his house. We'd already been through that with the Volks;http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9418
Peter of England had a free money scheme with his WeRe bank. Been there and done that with Menard's Freeman debit cards.
So you're going through the same evolutionary process that we did although your idiots seem to have a somewhat more dedicated remaining core than Canada. The big difference for me is proximity. When I reported on Canadian issues I could attend many of the trials. I could go to court registries and get copies of the documents and put them on Quatloos. I attended Freeman seminars and became acquainted with at least the main local actors. I took a few out to lunch! But I'm happy to say I'm just a bystander to the British madness. And, with nothing of real relevance to contribute, I ramble on about real ale and pubs.
