Ignorance of the Law

December 29, 2009

Ignorance of the law is no excuse. That is the sum of the government school education on the topic of law. It is not in the best interest of the government to instruct its citizens any further in the ways that the citizen might defend the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. This is akin to assuring slaves not learn how to read.

As children we are told of that magnificent document, the Constitution, and the rights that it protects. We are then taught to sit down, shut up and do as you’re told, the Constitution doesn’t apply to children in government schools.

Getting beyond our indoctrination is hard work. You’ve been brain washed by well meaning people who are themselves unknowing cogs in the system. Part of the system is the legal profession, the Bar. James Ostrowski has an excellent post at Lew Rockwell which exposes how that system operates. Eventually, the People will need to fix the system that we left neglected. In order to fix it we will need to know how the law works and teach children the same. To that end I recommend the legal self-help package, Jurisdictionary.

In this age of the internet there is little excuse for ignorance. It’s now your choice.
