Legalistic Edwina


Prelude  –  Earthly  Awakening

The correct voting method for determining the preferred election candidate has
been revealed by the Federal Electorate of Cook during 2010 and 2013 thereby
creating Legalistic Edwina the practical companion of Philosophical Edwina .

It is termed the  Natural  Law  of  Elections  –  see Election Petition 2013   part B

Regality  –  Earthly  Divinity

Law is a phenomenon arising from possibility expressed by limitation and doth form the hidden symbolism of the  Scales of Justice  –  the balance of possibility and limitation .  

The weighing of evidence connotation for the  Scales of Justice is a corruption .

Overview  –  Earthly  Enlightenment

This earthly realm is one of free will and free choice providing that the exertion of such
causes no physical harm to others or their personal property and possessions .

Law both natural and man made does exist to ensure that the aforestated is so .

Axiom  –  Earthly  Lore

No man made  artificial / human  law is binding without consent both collectively and
individually and this forms the fundamental and foundation basis of all such law .

Consent must not be obtained by threat or use of damaging physical force .

Paradox  –  Earthly  Dilemna / Dilemma

Consent both collective or individual for binding enforceable law may be legally
obtained through trickery and deception and physical harm could result .

However trickery and deception are both unethical practices not withstanding .

Manifestation  –  Earthly  Awareness

Ones birth  time / date / place  forms the channel for the natural law while
ones registered or known name forms the channel for the man made law .

Modus  Operandi  –  Earthly  Limitation

Voting represents the collective surrender and transfer of sovereign individual legal
power being symbolised and depicted by past civilisations as human sacrifice .

Membership to any organisation from paid employment to sporting and social represents
another form of collective surrender with the articles of association making it so .

The licence represents collective surrender in that an activity licenced or permitted is accompanied by an endless list of changing conditions and compliance .

The certificate ( similar to a qualification ) is the most demeaning collective surrender in that something may only occur by the authority of another or others so one for instance is not recognised born / dead / injured / sick  unless certified despite the actuality or reality .

The institution of marriage is not termed that without reason as it again represents the most covert form of collective surrender despite its sacred overtones and  it is to the exclusion of all others provision which doth make such the privatisation of sexual love .

Documents of personal identification constitute another type of collective surrender
as the details  –  names and numbers  –  on such are registered and registries claim ownership of the details and thereby the individual represented by those details .

The lodgement of an application document is a very covert form of collective surrender
in that an applicant will thereby transfer control of matters to others .

Educational and academic qualifications represent yet another category of collective
surrender or consent in that agreement exist to perform as trained or taught .

Passport / Visa / Citizenship represents the most comprehensive form of collective surrender in that one cannot travel / work / study  in a foreign nation without such
thereby creating the means of upholding the collective privatisation and ownership
of the Earth’s land by the misguided artificial concept of the  warring  nation state .

 

EDWINA  LEGAL  ENLIGHTENMENT

 

Nobody can do anything detrimental against another without their consent but such may be obtained as outlined above under the heading  –  Modus Operandi  &  Paradox

Never formally apologise as it is deemed an admission of wrongdoing .

Never formally demand an apology as they who do so will reveal themself as a wrongdoer .

Never state to a law enforcer or law regulator of an intention to act or that an action was unintentional as it does concede the resultant omission or outcome as a wrong

When one is confronted by a law enforcer or law regulator who doth question an action or an omission state that there exist legal and lawful reason for such but do not give that reason as nobody can be penalised for not declaring it .

There can be only one reason for any action or omission as any additional reason or reasons will always compromise the one sole reason .

Never allow contact with a lawyer if taken into custody for any reason .

If taken into custody and charged with a non violent criminal matter do not accept police bail and do not make a Court bail application as one can only be legally detained for a
maximum of 24 hours thereafter .

If brought before a Criminal Court and asked to plea always respond with  No plea  as the Court is given full liability and remind the Court of such upon any subsequent appearance after an adjournment over the same matter which will thereby maintain its existence and do not allow transference of that Court liability during proceedings .

If a matter does proceed through a Criminal Court do not be represented as a lawyer will invariably emmesh and entrench their client into the legal system .

If a criminal matter does proceed to a hearing continually remind the Court of its full liability and say the following when it is required   . . . . . .   No question  /  No objection  / 
No cross examination  /  No evidenceNo submission .

If the matter does then continue to a sentence hearing say    . . . . . .   No submission .

Strict adherence to the last four pieces of enlightenment will ensure that there has been no hearing and thereby no ruling by the Court will be legally binding or enforceable as the effective right of silence has been enacted but such will be conditional upon no further response or reaction by the candidate in question especially an appeal .

If an  error in law  is raised and identified and explained during any legal proceeding it will again mean that no ruling by a Court will be legally binding or enforceable .

An  error in law  will arise where a law is nullified by its own enactment .  

Any enactment of regulatory law will always create an  error in law  for usage and exploitation so it then all doth merely become a low level mental exercise of discovery . 

Never make an annulment aplication if a Court proceeding has been conducted in ones absence as any decision arising therefrom will have no legal validity .

There is nothing further to know concerning criminal law except that civil law and criminal law are interchangeable which doth mean all enforceable regulatory law is criminal 

 

THE  PHRASAL  VERB 

 

This phenomenon should not exist as it initially arose when a verb was followed by
a word normally used as a preposition creating an independent meaning using two
words instead of a correct single verb . Prepositions are grammatically placed before object words and if the misplacement continues the language itself may eventually
lose many words through disuse . The foundation phenomenon creates associated phenomena but the underlying cause represents backward thought indicative of a
general language regression and decay .

Note  –  Omission  will form  false  phrasal  verbs  hence ……

becomes  /  log  on   

” He entered the house by breaking inward the glass panel of the door “

becomes  /  break  in  – a phrasal verb

and also obtains  /  housebreaking  –  a noun or adjective or verb

and the legal term  /  break  and  enter

Note  –  needless addition by extension of the original omitted usage
will form false phrasal verbs hence

shop  around ”    should remain the single word  shop  as the nature of the
activity involves seeking in many places and locations but it was originally derived
by omission from a bygone era of the corner store now predominantly s uperseded
by the shopping centre or complex

I shall fetch some milk from the  shop around  the corner

hurry  up ”    should remain the single word  hurry  as the nature of the command
involves increasing the unstated actions rate of performance but it was originally derived by omission from a bygone era of overt class structured society now predominantly superseded by a covert class structured society under the illusory guise of ” equal opportunity

Hurry upstairs ” commanded the mistress from her bedroom on the upper level of the manor house to her servant girl located in the servants quarters on the ground level .

Note  –  if subjected to the above misused term refute the servant label or inference

tidy  up  /  pack  up  represent other common false phrasal verbs of this nature

 

The  Phrasal  Verb  –  with  more  than  two  words

come  up  with  /  create  or  invent  or  devise  or  suggest  or  propose

get  rid  of  /  eradicate

ran  out  of  /  exhausted  or  depleted

put  up  with  /  tolerate

made  fun  of  /  ridiculed  or derided  or  mocked  or  patronise

walk  on  by  /  pass  or  ignore

went  out  with  /  accompanied  or  dated  or  escorted

 

THE  FALSE  PHRASAL  VERB 

 

The phrasal verb will arise when two or more words replace a single correct word and function independently and possess the same meaning as that single correct word while omission or needless addition sometimes creates a  false  phrasal  verb  and such cannot be replaced by a single word or another single word 

 

THE  PHRASAL  ADVERB  –  officially unrecognised as a separate category

 

at  the  end  of  the  day  /  ultimately

every  now  and  again  /  occasionally

once  in  a  while  /  infrequently

once  in  a  blue  moon  /  rarely

by  the  way  /  incidentally

used  to  /  once

Note  –  these list and the responses merely identify and illustrate  phenomena or trends   and should not be deemed comprehensive nor definitive but only a personal selection

 

THE  MISSING  VERB  SYNDROME 

 

The word ” is ” may perform grammatically as an independent verb or an auxiliary verb but its classification  will depend upon whether a verb has been inadvertently omitted or excluded . The following examples will illustrate this particular trend or phenomenon .

” This  is  Creek Street . “

more correctly or fully expressed  becomes

” This section of roadway  is named  Creek Street . “

” The object  is  a table . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” The object here with the four protrusions  is called  a table . “

” He  is  dead .”

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” He  is  now  termed  dead . “

” That  is  an igneous rock . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” That rock  is classified  igneous . “

” That book  is  a spy thriller . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” That book  is categorised   a fictional spy thriller . “

” The ant  is  an insect . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” The ant  is classed  an insect . “

” Our home  is  in Hurstville . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” Our home  is located  within the suburb of Hurstville . “

” The beach  is  between the two rivers . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” The beach  is situated  on the east coastline between the two river heads . “

” The long distance runner  is  towards the front of the field . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” The long distance runner  is positioned  towards the front of the field . “

” A complement of ten workers  is  the minimum requirement . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” A complement of ten workers  is deemed  the minimum legal requirement . “

” English  is  both a clever language and the end language . “

more correctly or fully expressed becomes

” English  is considered  both a clever language and the end language . “

En glish  –  ” glish ” represents an archaic word meaning language

In grammatical reality the word  ”  is  ”  should mainly be used as an  auxiliary  verb
for there will mostly exist a hidden verb used as qualification of  ”  is  ”  or a word
or sentence rearrangement that will replace the use and function of  ”  is 

 

THE  PLURAL  VERB   MANIA 

 

A verb may only be made plural by a preceding auxiliary however a disturbing trend has arisen whereby the  full verb is being written as a ” s ” plural . This misusage does occur by an omission of the preceding auxiliary .

” The introduction of unnecessary restriction  makes  life difficult . “

more correctly expressed will become

” The introduction of unnecessary restriction  will make  life difficult . “

 

THE  DOUBLE  SHUFFLE 

 

This now current phenomenon occurs when an action is either unnecessarily prefaced by the implied element of such action or an action is unnecessarily expressed using two full verbs instead of a single verb thereby needlessly creating phrasal verbs .

” I will  attempt to  solve the problem . “

better expressed will become either

” I will be  solving  the problem . ”  –  with the  attempt  element implied

” I will  attempt  a solution of the problem . ”  –  with the  attempt  element expressed

” I  intend to  visit the library later today . “

better expressed will become either

” I  may  visit the library later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element implied

” I  could be  visiting the library later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element implied

” I  should be  visiting the library later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element implied

” I  will  visit the library later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element implied

” I  will be  visiting the library later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element implied

” I  intend  a library visitation later today . ”  –  with the  intend  element expressed

want to  /  like to  /  wish to  –  lie in the same category and should likewise be avoided

Note  –  using two full verbs for a single action doth represent a contradiction

 

THE  OPPOSITE  SHUFFLE

 

This phenomenon will arise when a negative opposite is used rather than the direct word .

“ Don’t forget your bag . ” 

better expressed will become 

“ Remember your bag . ” 

and fully expressd would become  

“ Remember ( to ) take your bag . ” 

but that would consequently form a  double shuffle  so the implied verb is omitted
with the pre-emptive exclamation becoming the verb .   

 

REVELATION 

 

Everything in this existence  is manifested  by thought which  is governed  by words

All words will contain a legalistic element ( law ) and a philosophical element ( lore )
