Don't know if this has been done before but someone was talking to me about it at the weekend and it sounds crazy but that there might be something behind it. I'm not saying it's true or not - there a few hits on Google but not many. I'm going to present it here as it was explained to me: When your name is put on your birth certificate, it is put on in all upper case (JOHN SMITH). This might not look significant, but apparantly this make you a corporate entity, legally speaking. This means, among other things, that the Government can raise debt against you (issue guilts) knowing that you will pay it back to them via various taxes over the course of your lifetime. Now, if you have your name put on in normal case (John Smith) then you are not a corporate entity but a 'soverign person'. This means, among other things that (this is where it gets crazy) the rule of law does not apply to you! You don't have to pay income tax (and possibly any tax), you can't be tried in any court except the high court, and you have the right to trial by jury for any crime. These are essentially the same rights the Queen has. This all sounds very far fetched but he is going through the process and has got a lower case birth certificate (which took quite a bit of effort) and passport for his new child. Was wondering if anyone else had heard of this crazyness?
