Impressive if somewhat amateurish. But that's what you'd expect from a non-academic on a personal quest. He describes himself as a true believer who eventually saw the light and moved on to the bright side. The book isn't for the faint-hearted. It's almost 500 pages and being continually updated. It makes Meads v Meads seem like a brochure. The advantages of Meads are of course that it was a PHD thesis disguised as an actual court decision which gives it great legal weight and it is professionally written.
Robert Sudy is a seasoned researcher of pseudo legal theory, having been involved with the movement on social media in Australia for close to a decade. The mythology behind most pseudo legal concepts is extremely peculiar, and understanding the concepts requires journey into the conspiratorial and demon-haunted mystical shadow world of the online community. Robert’s personal journey into "The Freeman Delusion" begins with himself being firmly convinced of the “commercial argument”, passing on the information to others online for several years, and applying the strategies in driving and several other matters. After New South Wales Magistrate David Heilpern patiently took the time to comprehensively reject all the pseudo legal arguments contended in his final judgment, Robert's search for a hint of legal merit in the theories gathered momentum.
Armed with a thorough understanding of the concepts theorised, he took the "devil’s advocate" approach through 4 years of online debates with some of the most prominent leaders in the movement, both in Australia and overseas. He concurrently researched how the individual arguments were rejected previously in the higher courts, and dividing legal fact from pseudo legal fiction, slowly debunked the fundamentals one by one. The conclusions reached in his journey are compiled in this comprehensive analysis of around 50 separate and yet connected pseudo legal theories, citing hundreds of references, from cases in the federal and higher state courts in Australia and overseas, the associated domestic provisions in legislation, and other reputable legal sources around the world.
