The Law vs Statutes

The Law is the Common Law and it is the foundation of justice for living people. Laws serve all People equally. Laws defend our Unalienable Rights, provide reparations to the injured, and through them we can live in peace and harmony with other people. The Law is the definition of the People's power, and is Common Sense. The Law protects living people from harm, loss, and fraud.

Statutes are the en-act-ments of the Legislature that apply to publicly registered legal entities as franchises of the public State. Statutes offer limited “privileges and benefits” to “artificial persons” of various kinds, prescribing contract “rules and regulations” by consent. Statutes can have the appearance, or “colour of law”. Statutes govern legal entities as a franchise benefit to the public State.

Statutes are not Laws. The Law is from the People. Statutes are from the State.

Maxim of Law:
Quid fas non veritas est.
Legality is not Reality.

The difference between what is “lawful” and what is “legal” is a matter of life and death. What is lawful is for the living people. What is legal is for dead corporate entities.

legal = fiction
statute = statue
legislation = leg of a statue
act = act of a statue

New Zealand is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government. All Private Sovereign men and women, are de jure “in law”. All Public Servants in corporate roles, and all artificial legal entities, are de facto “in practice”. The government is divided into three branches:

The People's Common Law power of justice is “Judicial”, and exercised “Lawfully” (Trial-by-Jury), whereas the State's delegated duty of management is “Executive”, and exercised “Legally” (Legislation).

Statute types are “Acts, Bills and Legislative Instruments”, and they apply to artificial legal (legislated) “persons”, so their texts never refer to a living “man” or “woman”. Statute titles never end with the word “Law”. Public officials habitually refer to “Acts” as “Laws”. But an “Act” is not a “Law”, i.e. the Land Transport Act, is not titled the Land Transport Law.

In New Zealand, only a few statutes acknowledge the right of living men and women to “due process of law”, including the Imperial Laws Applications Act 1988, which states that the 'common law … shall be part of the laws of New Zealand', the Observance of Due Process of Law Statute 1368, which acknowledges 'due process' … 'according to the old law of the land,' and the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990, which is … 'for the benefit of all natural persons'.

There is a natural compulsion to obey the Law because it safeguards our living rights and freedoms. If we do not honour the Law then it cannot afford us protection. However, obeying statutes is voluntary. We are members of the “legal society” as a matter of choice. Our consent is given unilaterally, not collectively via a government election. In a truly free nation, men and women in the Common Law jurisdiction, would give their consent freely to obtain the commercial “privileges” and “benefits” offered by the State in the Admiralty Maritime jurisdiction. We must be aware that the State has been incorporated to serve the debt-money system of bondage, so the people are not offered de jure Common Law contracts serving the State, but de facto Admiralty Maritime contracts serving the Banks as surety for debt. If corrupt statutes become onerous to the common good, the people have a right to withdraw their consent in order to defend their rights, and indeed they have an obligation and a duty to do so because only the people can redress the corruption of their government.

Statutes are contracts. Statutes prescribe the “terms and conditions” of commercial contracts, relying for their effect upon your consent.

'Kia ora. The authoritative source of Acts, Bills & Legislative Instruments'

'INSTRUMENT, contracts. The writing which contains some agreement, and is so called because it has been prepared as a memorial of what has taken place or been agreed upon. The agreement and the instrument in which it is contained are very different things, the latter being only evidence of the existence of the former. The instrument or form of the contract may be valid, but the contract itself may be void on account of fraud.' – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856
