So Lawful Rebellion is a refusal to conform to an unjust authority that is sanctioned by, or in accordance with law.
Under article 61 of Magna Carta 1215 we have a right to enter into lawful rebellion if we feel we are being governed unjustly.
Do you think that we are being governed unjustly?
- Did you want to join the European Union?
- Did you want to go to war with Iraq or Afghanistan?
- Did you want to bail out the banks?
- Did you ask to be constantly monitored by CCTV cameras?
This is a simple safeguard put in place to protect our freedoms. Our ancestors knew there could be a problem one day if the crown became unjust, or turned into some sort of dictatorship, or parliament was acting against the people, or was full of corruption, or was not allowing the crown to keep its oath.
So in article 61 of the Magna Carta it was written that if this ever happened you could petition the crown to sort out the
crown's or parliament's problem, the crown had 40 days to fix it or dissolve parliament.
If, after 40 days, nothing was fixed the petitioner could go into rebellion against the crown and parliament under the full protection of our Constitutional Law until the problem was resolved.
By invoking article 61 we are quite clearly stating that we feel we are being governed unjustly and excercising our right go into 'lawful rebellion', and in doing so we would no longer have allegiance to the crown or parliament because they had become corrupt etc, we may peacefully act to hinder in any way possible all actions of the treasonous government of this land, in order to bring to an end the corruption or injustice within the system. It is law that we can do this, and we are actually obeying the law by doing it, because it is the peoples duty to fight corruption and uphold the law.Lawful rebellion allows for the following:
Because our constitution cannot be repealed, it is still valid law.
Lawful rebellion is the cornerstone of the Freeman League Society, in order to detach yourself from society, it is vitally important that you have officially revoked the your consent to be governed and have entered into lawful rebellion.
We all know that should a significant portion of us manage successfully to live outside their system that the government will seek to regain contol over us by any means it deems necessary and it will quote law (statute law) to justify itself.
For those who have revoked their consent to be governed according to article 61 of the Magna Carta 1215 there can be no such
justification, it would be like a store manager of Tesco's trying to enforce a company rule from the employee's handbook on a
passing Traffic Warden, however, if you do happen to work for Tesco's then those rules are law and Tesco's can insist that you
follow them or take action against you.
Similarly, if you have not officially entered into lawful rebellion then the government will demand that you conform to its rules and feel justified in taking action against you if you do not follow them.
