Lovely...posted August 20th, 2019 at 3:40 PM ... tax protest case. We're clearly kept as chattel on a plantation, massa demands his cut of your wages, just like Frederick Douglas said---massa let black slaves work, so long as they gave massa his cut.

Let Me GuessAug 21, 2019 at 9:51amCanada is a gulag? @Let Me GuessAug 21, 2019 at 3:05pmIt's worse, 'cause the people in a gulag knew they were in a gulag.Canada has a 19th century coercive regulatory model that treats humans like livestock. If the cow is mooing in court, you poke it with a cattle prod/put it in handcuffs!Go read the case. It's like we never left the bad old days of coercive elementary school education. Putting handcuffs on someone because he wouldn't be quiet? I think he could be removed from the room, but putting him in handcuffs because he interrupted teacher? This is disgusting human slavery. We think we're so clever and classless and free, so said John Lennon, but we're still fucking peasants. MixingdrinksonthebusAug 22, 2019 at 8:49amThis isn't a "tax protest" case. It is about fraud (he was selling a tax fraud scheme to others) and rank stupidity. This person who was warned repeated that disruptive behaviour would result in him being restrained and removed from the courtroom, and continued to display disruptive behaviour. Free speech does not mean no consequences. And committing fraud is not a legit protest. @MixingdrinksonthebusAug 24, 2019 at 10:45pmSure it is, the Straight reported on it, this is because they cannot directly prohibit the speech telling people that taxation is illegitimate, but they can prohibit the sale of such advice, or perhaps, I don't know, computer games in which you pretend to avoid taxes by pretending to submit paperwork to a bureaucratic AI program. It could be set up to teach young people to write buffer overflow exploits, who knows. See aleph zero's smashing the stack for fun and profit.the point is that they're using force to program humans into accepting all sorts of things that don't have any place in 2019, now that we understand what is going on, that is all, calling it fraud to say "avoid paying master as much of the money you make as possible, you have no obligation to tell master if you make money any more than you have obligation to tell a robber where the silver is in the house," I don't know. Could you charge people to see a play where this sort of line was uttered? It seems like this would simply require repackaging the information as entertainment, so it seems pretty gratuitous to go after this sort of thing.As for the court behaviour, I don't think he was simply removed, he was handcuffed. Handcuffing is a punishment for someone who has attempted to escape, it is not even technically support to be used upon arrest unless an attempted escape has been made, it is a form of punishment. It is, however, used by many officers even if there is no flight risk. Speaking or not speaking is not indicative of a flight risk unless specific statements of flight are made, and this is not some metaphorical "verbal flight of fancy" such that if you have a patient in court, you can put handcuffs on him to make him be quiet.It shows very succinctly how matters of jurisdiction are dealt with, by simply coercing people into accepting the Crown's sovereignty. It is not fraud to question whether or not that is consonant with international law, etc. Join the Discussion Your name Comment * your name What's your name?
