I found an article recently over at My Private Audio. There’s no name on it, so I don’t have any idea who wrote it, originally. Let’s credit it to “Anonymous.” It got me thinking. The article, which I’ve rewritten for the most part, explains, that who “you” are, is no longer the question. The question is, who is “you.”
Similarly, folks typically say “The people are outside” not “The people is outside.” In America, We, the People are the sovereigns, meaning that each individual man and/or woman is a sovereign. Therefore, around Musicians 4 Freedom, we are in the habit of referring to an individual man or woman acting in his or her sovereign capacity as a “people,” rather than as a PERSON, or a Person, which are legal fictions. I also use the words, “man” and “woman” to reference sovereigns.
For this article, I’m adopting the following protocol: “PERSON” means an artificial legal person (organization); “Person means a natural person (individual).
Trust Corpus: The “body” of a trust (corpus is latin for “body”); this is the property that is transferred into the trust. It’s also known as the Trust “Res”. This term refers to all the property transferred to a trust. For example, if a trust is established (funded) with $250,000, that money is the corpus.
In your state’s statutes, somewhere you’ll find words that go something like this: “The singular includes the plural and vice versa.” For background, be sure to read this article from Barefoot about Persons. Also, check out this document from SEDM, “includes.” Also, look at this presentation from Creditors in Commerce (Disclaimer) on Dual Trusts. Also check out the work of Max Igan, The Crowhouse and Guy Taylor, et al., Lawful Rebellion.
I agree with this author (who strikes me as Canadian) that, among Americans working to become more free, the word “you” gets more people into trouble than any other word utilized within our modern-day global legal and financial systems. Thus, it’s incredibly important to the sovereign discussion to comprehend the intricacies of the word, “you.” Here’s a beginning.
Loosely, the word “you” is a pronoun. When spoken, “you” is commonly heard by a group of men and women, as if it were being addressed to each of them, individually, in a singular sense. We hear a singular inclination of the properly plural expression, as in one speaking to a group and saying; “I’m happy to share this with you.”
