Legislation (Codes, Acts, Statutes) is not law. (Flournoy v First Nat Bank of Shreveport, 197 La. 1067, 3 So.2d 244, 248), (In Re Self v Rhay Wn 2d 262), (Koenig v Flynn, 258 N.Y. 292, 179 N.E. 705, 707; Ward v State, 176 Okl. 368, 56 P.2d 136, 137; State ex rel. Todd v Yelle, 7 Wash. 2d 443, 110 P.2d 162, 165) and (Self v Rhay, 61 Wn 2d 261). Legislation is man made.
Man is not subject to man made law (legislation). “Every man is independent of all laws except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institution formed by his fellow man without his consent” (Cruden v Neale ZNC 338 May Term 1796).
No corporate jurisdiction over the natural man (Penhallow v Doanne’s Administrators 3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54, Supreme Court).
A direction or order is neither law nor legislation. There is no legal or lawful requirement to comply with any direction or order.
An agreement with Government, Government agents and authorities is achieved by your consent or assent (your silence to an offer). There is no legislation on earth that can trespass, override, diminish or annul an agreement or contract.
Hence your silence to an offer by Government, Government agents and authorities can and often will give rise to agreement, by your assent through your silence in expressing your non consent or opposition to any Government direction or order.
The purported requirement by any party to comply with a Government order or direction so is only hear-say and a bluff designed to mislead you into believing you are compelled or obligated by law to surrender up to Government agencies, authorities or employees your rights when nothing is further from the truth.
However to avoid your entrapment, by an assented to agreement, to any Government or Government agency, authority or employee offer compelling you to “comply” with their order or direction, you only need to express to them in writing your non consent to their offer and that you reserve your rights at all times.
