There is nothing at all wrong with forming and learning to use the Jural Societies—but they are not “the” answer, only “an” answer that is readily available and which must then be supported by additional action– such as regaining control of the local governments, electing judges, coroners, and sheriffs of the land jurisdiction, gaining access to use courthouses and jail facilities, etc., etc., etc. And in order to fund and support and inform all this activity, there is desperate need for education of the public and the elected officials like Sheriff Mack who think they are in the right and are in fact so ignorant that they don’t even know what jurisdiction they are supposed to be operating in and who actually pays their salary. Until we have the means to inform more people properly, relying on the Jural Societies is dangerous—either one of two things can happen: first, the Jural Societies can be attacked and discredited while still a fledgling effort—so they need to be squeaky clean and need to know who they are and under what authority and in which jurisdiction they operate. The recent Quo Warranto action NLA mounted is instructive; they did a wonderful job, and yet, they are still stumbling around making ignorant assumptions about the federal government—what it is, how it works, and who it answers to. Until the Jural Societies come to grips with such basics they are open to attack and discredit. A certain amount of patience and hard work and circumspection is required. One crawls before one walks. The Jural Societies are at the crawl stage. The second thing that can happen is that they succeed wildly on the strength of burgeoning public opinion before the educational process has time to work and before a proper understanding of identities and roles has developed— in which case they can easily turn into arbitrary tribunals that arrest people based on hearsay and inflict severe, draconian, vengeful charges against people who are for the most part completely ignorant— a circumstance that promulgates more injustice and creates more real enemies for the movement as a whole.
I have said it before and will say it again— ANYTHING that leads to abuse of power, to unnecessary conflict, to displays of “power”—-plays into the hands of the enemies of human freedom. Again, the Quo Warranto effort of the NLA is instructive— what did they do, straight out of the box? They threatened everyone and in no uncertain terms— “face the wrath of We, the People” —- well, I am sure that felt good to the writers. I am also sure that it was neither a wise nor appropriate thing to say or do. The people being addressed are all members of a foreign government— just as foreign as the government of Ireland—-and THEY have the guns. We, the People, have been asleep at the wheel for so long that they aren’t even recognizable. Those who want to just jump to the wheel and turn the car around had better learn how to drive, first. Or we are all apt to land in the ditch.
This is not a criticism of the concept or desirability of Jural Societies and all the infrastructure needed to support them, but it is a word of caution to all these people who are going out willy-nilly making threats they are not prepared to follow up on against foreign governments that they are not informed enough to deal with.
