  1. I thought I would start here with poking fun at Wolf's absurdities. Footloose Lazy Fair City. A fancy-free teen struggles to organize a dance in a strict Midwestern town. That movie title sounds simple but your Freeman’s Constitution makes no sense, without a place, a time, and citizens. If it is just a document with rules to live by that’s one thing, but for it to matter, there must be people who are living by the Freeman’s Constitution. A city (or a territory) must be established to implement the Constitution and test it. There are no provisions for an army, and no taxation allowed to raise one, just fees for services rendered, paid for by citizen’s who want to go to war to keep their territory. You could call Greenwich Village your sovereign city but New York City Mayor De Blasio would catch on and run you out of town or stick you in Riker’s Island prison. You could resist but you would still lose. The mayor could call on the city police department, the state police, the national guard and eventually the armed forces to evict the invaders. Therefor your brand of Laissez Faire Sharia Law cannot be established by illegally seizing land from a civilized territory. That’s out of the question. So where do you get your land? How about invading an Indian Reservation? Nah, the Indians would be the good guys and are Federally protected. And haven’t they had enough land stolen from them? Now going back to my Greenwich Village idea, as an example of the principle of hiding in plain sight you could be living your dream protected by anonymity (De Blasio and other outsiders don’t know you’ve established your own special place.) Your territory must be invisible, like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest. You could have your own high signs like speakeasies did during Prohibition. The whole time you guys would be disregarding New York City’s laws. You might need to bribe a few building inspectors, and convince the local precinct that like the Hasidic Jews you don’t need any policing, no one would pay their taxes and . . . nah, that would eventually fall apart. The tax man is omniscient. New ground is needed to float Lazy Fair City. If your territory is not newly filled in Ocean or a new city floating in international waters it would need to be outside the jurisdiction of any countries that might dispute its establishment.
