Switch on your TV of an evening and you can place a sure bet that the mainstream media is telling you that all manner of things are now mandatory under the Covid-19 “new normal”; face masks, lockdowns, social distancing and very soon if not already untested vaccines.
But for Tom Barnett, such claims of mandatory obligations are rather misinformed. Barnett explains that, when people find themselves subjected to legal mandates, all that is happening is that we are being made an offer to accept a contract. But as men and women made by our Creator to have free will, we do not have to accept any such terms.
Maxims of Commerce
Tom Barnett has a cult following on alternative social media. An Australian healer with respectable degrees in Biomedical Science, as well as qualifications in natural medicine, nutrition and physical performance conditioning, he has a magnetic presence even on a computer screen. Barnett has quickly become one of the most popular educators on the subject of seeking remedy against increasing government and corporate repression.
Barnett explains that, when people find themselves subjected to legal compulsions, they are dealing with basic principles in commerce that reach back millennia in law. Under principles of commerce, people assume either the role of debtors or creditors in a relationship. A government edict or official that requires us to behave in a certain way towards them, is assuming the role of creditor in relationship to us. In other words when an official compels you to behave in a certain way, they are assuming you “owe” them that obligation.
For example, when an official asks you to sign your name on an application, that official assumes that you owe them that information and if you agree and give your name, you have put yourself in the role of debtor. In other words you have entered into a contract to behave in a certain way.
Everything in modern life from a mobile phone contract, to registration with the roads authority entails entering into a contract that obligates us to behave in certain ways. In the final analysis, these contracts are all offers.
Some of us might object to this characterisation. After all these are things we just could not live without, like driving a car, unless we go through the mandatory processes that allow us to put our vehicle on the road.
Not for Tom Barnett. He has even managed for a short time, to drive without a licence, by printing his own plates and licence!
For Barnett, we can free ourselves from this position of bondage that we are daily forced to assume, by reversing the roles. We can make alternative offers. We can offer our own contracts. By doing so, we become the creditors. These principles are based in existing commercial laws.
But first we need to familiarise ourselves with all the ancient maxims of commerce.
The Bible: the source of all tort and contract law
Have you ever heard of the saying “a workman is worthy of his hire” ? This principle that people who work for you should be paid their worth comes from various biblical passages found in Exodus, Leviticus, Mathew and Luke. Other maxims include “all are equal under the law”, meaning God’s law and thus natural law; and “In commerce truth is sovereign” meaning one cannot put others under obligations based on lies, because if there was no truth, commerce could not happen. Commerce always requires your consent or agreement but in order for this contract to be valid, there must be no deception.
There are many other maxims too numerous to mention here, but don’t think for a moment that such sentiments are irrelevant relics. All commercial maxims are based on ancient principles recorded in the bible, the oldest source of law. The whole of tort (compensatory) and contract law in Western Anglo jurisprudence is derived from biblical principles. If you want to know more about the biblical origins of commercial law, a great starting point are the articles by law Professor Richard H. Hiers.
In fact in the bible (As observed by CRROW), if one reads the sections in red, that indicate when Jesus is speaking, these instances show us that Christ is holding his position. The story of the bible, which is the story of the coming of the Messiah to liberate humanity, is one large contract. Think of why the Queen, parliamentarians and other public office holders have to swear their oaths on a bible!
How to respond in Honour and Stand your Ground
So, how does one liberate themselves from unfair offers of contract?
When you are made an offer, you have to find a way to assume the role of creditor. Never allow a person to put you in a position of debtor.
How you respond matters greatly to achieving an outcome of liberation. Refusing to consent or refusing the contract are both unwise. That is because in the world of commerce there are honourable and dishonourable ways in which to respond to an offer of contract. Refusing to accept or remaining silent is treated as a dishonourable act in the world of commercial law, and you forfeit your right to determine the outcome of any arrangement.
The honourable way to act- and the most powerful way to stand your ground, is to give your conditional acceptance BUT to do so whilst being the one that asks all the questions (never answer theirs).
A conditional acceptance is powerful because you obligate the person attempting to put a contract upon you to prove their claims. For example, if an employer or government agent attempts to put you under contract that obligates you to get a vaccine you can honourably agree but on the caveat that they meet your conditions to prove their claims (about what the vaccine will achieve) and accept full liability for any adverse outcomes that arise from the action they are obligating.
Notice of Liability and Conditional Acceptance
Many anti-vaccination groups now advocate people use “Notice of Liability and Conditional Acceptance” contracts to deal with increasing vaccine mandates being presented to them by employers, schools and other corporate and commercial entities.
Offering someone trying to coerce you into an arrangement with an alternative contract which you attach caveats to, is perfectly within your legal rights. Such a contract between two parties trumps any other legal instrument, including state and federal statutes requiring interventions such as vaccines.
Such a contract could for example, require that the entity offering vaccinations, prove their claims about the assumed benefits. They could also be asked to accept all liabilities for poor outcomes from vaccination, including medical costs, financial liabilities from job loss or reduced work and productive capacity; and require that the entity admit that they cannot guarantee absolute safety whilst accepting full liability. You can also ask for and include the public indemnity membership number on the document when dealing with public officials who have to carry such insurance schemes to hold their jobs.
Look at the following examples
What happens if they don’t sign?
The beauty of laws of commerce is that a person who walks away from a contract is in default. In other words, they lose any legal right to determine an outcome, if they refuse your counter-offer. Nor can they refuse you any benefit or service, without attracting a penalty. Such a default can be dealt with in the courts.
Verbal Conditional Acceptance
Written “Notice of Liability and Conditional Acceptance” in the written form has to be made 3 times (and the opposing party must default 3 times) in order for it to be the final agreement.
However a verbal conditional acceptance can also be given if you are challenged for time. Barnett advises that you use a mobile phone to record the agreement and/or default. Better still , have a friend with you to be the witness.
Cal Washington’s discoveries
One of the earliest and most popular advocates of using the Notice of Liability is Cal Washington. Decades ago he found himself in the middle of a divorce, which resulted in loss of custody of his children whilst being burdened with onerous maintenance payments. He tried to fight the court’s overbearing infringements on is life in the conventional manner only to find himself fined and thrown into jail on numerous occasions. He began to however get wise to the way things worked, and eventually managed to get free of all the impositions the state attempted to shackle him with.
For Washington, the legal system is set up in a way to keep people in ignorance of the true basis of law, that is natural law and overly reliant on professionals admitted to the Bar. The system disadvantages everyday people and is weighted towards advantaging the rich who can afford to pay for intricate legal strategies.
For both Washington and Barnett, the evidence that men and women are made in the image of God and born with full dominion over their own bodies, minds and souls, is the fact that external authorities always require our consent to control us. By doing so, such entities are trying to over-throw the most High God. Washington goes so far as to call them Luciferians.
His statement sure gives a whole new meaning to the saying, “make a deal with the devil”.
