I thank “Divinely Be” , for re-opening this global dialogue (that never will be closed, as we often return to the topic of authority, rules, acquiescence and agreements). Actually all our posts are related to authority, rules, agreements and contracts as the legal presumption of agreements and rules are the faulty foundations for the meme or belief system of all nation states.
The System (EVERYTHING in the system) is based on Contract (and agreements or the threat of force based on the presumed agreement and acquiescence).
But, when was the last time you willingly made or amended a contract?
Have institutions (courts, governments, and corporations) ever asked for your input in a contract?
Do the institutions have an agreement or contract with you personally, and if so how?
Banks are the most likely to claim an agreement with your signature, but did you write or amend the contract? And did you get a counter-party signature, if so who in the bank signed your contract?
My experience has always been the banks have pre-printed form(s) requiring my signature but I never was allowed to see a banker sign it, nor was I allowed to amend the form(s).
Only the belief system and the threat of harming you is holding this institutional meme together.
Recall our previous posts:
Everything is contract.
Business models derive from contracts.
Contracts do not have to be written, they can be verbal, or implied, If you want to know the basic elements of a contract, look it up online or in a law-book or business journal. For example, hiring a babysitter for Friday night (offer), he/she agrees (accept) and shows up to babysit (performance) then gets paid when you get home (compensation). Get it? It is a bit oversimplified for a complex topic.
Have you ever gone into business with a friend or family? That is discussed later.
I’ve heard the U.S. constitution is a form of contract, and in looking it over appears as a unilateral contract as I do not see the King’s signature on it agreeing to the terms and conditions. In fact, I don’t see my signature on it or my neighbor’s, or local legislator, governor, or even the current president. All I see is a handful of gents long deceased putting forth a declaration, which isn’t even properly notarized. Is it any wonder that courts don’t allow constitutional arguments any longer?
Why, even the country’s Supreme Court skates on thin ice with the concept. They even make ‘supreme’ decisions on an alleged contract that is now unenforceable. Is this true?
Think about that.
It might be time to throw all the decisions out made in the past two hundred years, at least since 1813 and start over.
