Before the modern era, people lived among tribes which were often nomadic. With limited technology available to maximize resources in one location, tribes sought new fertile lands for survival, as they banded together for mutual protection. As the size of these tribes grew, nations were born based on common heritage and history. As the need for a nomadic lifestyle diminished, nations formed boundaries around their ancestral lands and used these borders to define the limits of their power.
When disputes arose, matters were settled within these borders by the laws of each land. These laws evolved from social contracts based on common values and norms. The word jurisdiction came into being from the Latin origin juris, which means law, and signified the region where the law of the land applied.
As nations formalized their legal systems, they developed the concept of citizenship. In ancient Rome, being a citizen was an esteemed honor, which members of the ancient world coveted for its benefits. Likewise today, waves of immigrants flock to developed nations like the United States with hopes of one day becoming citizens and partaking of all the benefits associated with this reserved status.
Much of the mainstream support for the concepts of jurisdiction and citizenship come from a focus on the benefits – which are too numerous to list – without examining the potential challenges that these concepts include when engaging in commerce. For example, the liability of conducting business using one’s personal identity as a citizen is so high and includes unlimited personal risk that it is an infrequent practice. Most businesspeople create legal entities such as corporations or Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) to protect their personal assets when engaging in business.
However, even these legal entities are still subject to jurisdiction-based regulations. The better option is to undergo the Secured Party Creditor process and form a Private Non-Statutory Trust. These legal tools restore one’s status as a living, breathing Human, and enable one to engage in commerce with greater protections against potential liabilities. As a Human, one operates beyond any specific jurisdiction, whereas a citizen is inherently bound by a contract with the State that began when a birth certificate was issued following birth.
Even as a Human, government agencies can still initiate attempts at enforcing contracts. But these legal tools provide additional layers of freedom if one chooses to not accept such contract attempts. Operating as a citizen does not allow this possibility.
