Random Acts of Revolution for the Everyday Revolutionary

Posted by: Daisy Luther | The Organic Prepper

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery. This means that if you are a slave today, it’s either illegal, or you have voluntarily accepted your servitude.

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

You have a Constitutionally protected right to be free. If you aren’t free, then revolution is your duty.

Many people believe that revolution requires that they lead a march, stand in front of a crowd with a bullhorn, or form a militia. They feel like it’s a job for the Alex Joneses, the Adam Kokeshes, the James Wesley Rawleses, and the Bradley Mannings of the world.

They’re wrong. You don’t have to be a person with thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook . You don’t have to be a person with a military leadership position on your resume. You need not get yourself arrested on the steps of the White House, got to prison forever for telling the truth about your unit in the army, or stare down a bunch of scary-looking thugs in jack boots.

But you do have to do something.

You can’t just sit there and complain unless you are really just another armchair Rambo.

The way you lead your life every single day can be an act of revolution. By refusing to concede your natural rights, quietly and resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution. Walking the walk doesn’t always require civil disobedience or militia membership (although those actions definitely have their places). It requires your consistent determination not to be infringed upon.

It doesn’t matter if you are a soccer mom from the suburbs, a college student in a dormitory, a church-going dad and husband, or a person who has found themselves homeless through the ongoing economic crisis – by living resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution.

Don’t get me wrong – we need the Alexes, the Adams, the militias, the Bradleys, and the JWRs. We need the people who stand in protest. We need those who expose wrongdoing. We need the organizers, the shouters, the big personalities, the quiet strong types, and the leaders. But these are not the only ways to revolt. If every single person was off organizing their own rally, there’d be no one left to march in it.

What it is imperative upon us to do is to find our compass and follow it.

Where will this end??

Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained —

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!



O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Bravo! I've been saying the

Bravo! I've been saying the same thing for years to my family and peers. Get off your duff! Stop preaching to the choir!

the 13th amendment was replaced .....

by the 14th amendment slave. If you ever get a chance look up 42 USC Section 1981 (google it). This section refers to civil rights - "equal rights under the law" clause. refer to (a) under that section you will find the word "exactions" in the last sentence.

Now go to Bouvier's Law dictionary, any of the older editions, like the link below and look up the word "exaction", see link below:


now place this definition back into the 42 USC section 1981, and you will see that the State now becomes the master, and all the U.S. citizens/ 14th amendment citizens/ We the People of the Constitution become the slave of the state.

How True.

The cause is even more blatant however. As I have stated elsewhere:

The 13th Amendment abolished private slavery in the form of involuntary servitude, while the14th Amendment instituted public slavery the form of voluntary servitude.

This is because of the true nature of what the United States is. As you read in the OP, the 13th Amendment says: "..within the United States or the jurisdiction of any of them ." It referred to "them" which is plural, the States, but the 14th Amendment referres to "it," the municipal corporation Unites States. The 14th Amendment does not mention the States.

Furthermore, the definitions of "federal" and "congress" apply to international organizations. The United States (municipal corporation) is an international organization. Now the really important part is that as such it is not a state or a country. So being a citizen of it is not being a member of a de jure body politic of a State or a country, but merely the subject of Congress, an international political organization, like the UN General Assembly.

The States are the countries, the de jure bodies politic, that comprise the Union. It was the peoples of the States who ratified the Constitution, not US citzens. It is these State peoples that live in republican freedom because it is the States that are guaranteed a republican form of government by Art. 4, Sec. 4 of the Constitution. The Federal government governs the Federation not the States themselves or the the peoples thereof.

But the 14th Amendment removed the peoples of the States from their rightful political status as rebublican sovereigns of their respective States, and gave them subject status under Congress.

The last paradox and irony for me is that the peoples of the States had freedom and unity in their separate or individual Statehoods, but today the people of the United States are divided and conquered people who are ruled by delusional unity under a false state.

So the remedy to this situation is not revolution (look up the definition please). It is not political dissent. There is no political remedy! The remedy is to correct the status which has been presumed of you and which you have confermed by deed and action. To understand the law which governs the formation of the Union is to see the nature of the voluntary trap which is the 14th Amendment and how it has perverted the lawful Union.

The People's Awareness Coalition (PAC) has been successfully assisting people to correct their status and restore their rightful nationality in law for fifteen years. Read The Red Amendment (link below) and join the Coalition. The government will only change when the people change. Unity is our only strength.

There is always a remedy in law.....

otherwise the system will fail.

Your second to last paragraph is absolutely true. No need for a revolution that was already taken care of in 1776. One only needs to do now is enforce it. This is confirmed by what is known as the Organic Laws of United States enacted in the 1st Judicial session, see the third paragraph where the Commissioner is directed by the President to include the Articles of Confederation, The Declaration of Independence, the Ordinance of the Northwestern Territories and the Consitution, see link below:


In any case with regards to the States please understand that there are two states. One organized under the Articles of Confederation as free Republics where you inhabit the “kingdom of God” (life, liberty and pursuit of happiness) where you are left alone, and the other mirror state organized as a corporation under Title 4 (Flag and seal, seat of government and the states), see Chapter 4 (The States)as shown in the link below:


Where all government is located in the District of Columbia (Note when it says all government it means all – municipal, local, state and federal) see link below:


All the 51 titles of the US code only applies to Officer, agents and employees of the State, see (a)(1) from the link below:


Once you understand the presumption and correctly rebut, the territorial, subject matter and personal jurisdiction with a sworn affidavit then you give notice to them.

The free Republics of the sovereign states still exist as I have shown above that the Organic Laws of the United States includes both the Articles of Confederation and the Declaration of Independence. It is up to you to secure it.

Notice that I refer to the

Notice that I refer to the "peoples of the states" not State cotizens or Citizens as related to Roman Civil Law. I am very cognizant of the federal overlay "State of ..." political subdivisions of the United States as opposed to the post Revolutionary War de jure sovereign, free, and independant States acknowledged by King George lll in the Treaty of Peace in Paris in 1783.

I have nothing to say but,

"Wow! What a well written article!" Daisy Luther really put forth some basic principle in simple fashion. Her perspective and tangible grasp of reality are as far as I can tell impeccably commendable and inspiring. The article hones me into consciously taking a better and more daily approach to living free. I can wake up each day and say to myself, "All I have is today, and as I walk through it I will do what I need in all that I face to remain responsibly free and to be more than just adequately respectable to myself." -or something like that :D . Kudos Michael, for this is a bulk portion of what DP is in essence for me!

note to self....


The sixteenth amendment supercedes the thirteenth.

"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."

As long as wages are considered income, the idea of involuntary servitude to the federal government is a reality.

There has been an argument made that military conscription violates the Thirteenth Amendment. To get around this, the military has an induction ceremony where the draftee takes an oath and takes a step forward. What I have read, this makes becoming a soldier voluntary under a draft; If the draftee refuses to participate in the induction ceremony, he remains a civilian. Since the U.S. has not had an active draft since Nixon or Ford were president, I am not familiar with case history of what happens to a draftee who refuses to participate in his induction.

I have not heard if he would be arrested or sent home or what happens to him.

The 16th Amendment is very limited in scope ....

otherwise it would be in conflict with Article 1 section 2 and 9 of the Constitution. Refer to law cases pertaining to the the 16th after the so called "passage" of it. If you take the time to understand the term "income" it would help clear up the confusion.

Do not wish to go to deep into this, as it is a subject of its own and not related to this post.

16th needs repeal, NOT narrower interpretation!

It does conflict with Section 9. Section 9 is limited and specific. The 16th utterly smashes Section 9's limitation and specificity. I'm personally hip to the arguments distinguishing wages from income [or not], but in evaluating the destructive effect of the 16th Amendment to that which anyone might refer to as "United States", such distinction doesn't really matter. Even the broadest definition of "income" may be used, and the Amendment is still utterly destructive. The Amendment institutionalized for the first time the concept that the general(federal/national) government could directly interact with citizens of States writ large without actually interacting with or being accountable to State governments. Such a concept was perfectly antithetical to every other Constitutional concept and principle ratified prior. In spirit it conflicts with all Articles, Sections, and prior Amendments.

Sorry for the confusion......

when I was saying "limited in scope", I was responding to the general mis-understanding of the 16th by the public which assume that it applies to all persons, and all income derived from whatever the source without regards to apportionment and census.

Loved it and I've got a few to add on the money front

- Go to your state's unclaimed property website and search on your name, family members and friends to check. Follow instructions for getting the loot returned. In Texas for example, 1 in 4 citizens have unclaimed property!
- If applicable in your state, make sure your friends and neighbors who are homeowners have a homestead exemption in place for their property. Show them how to apply if needed.
- In my city, there is a voluntary park fee on the monthly water/trash bill. I called a city govt number and left my name and got it removed. Tell your neighbors to do the same.

Here, here!

There is no such thing as laws, and rules, and slavery.

We are autonomous human beings and we make decisions to serve our self interest, using our environments as references and our ethics as tools.

We only choose to sacrifice our freedom, to live within the confines of the desires of others, as we see it as the best option for achieving our self interest under these conditions.

Although it can be hard, and frightening, and dangerous; If you want your freedom, all you have to do is take it.



So I'm guessing this implies Americans are convicts in a legal sense? Hence taxation, conscription (yet to be imposed, again), imprisonment without due process of law, and such.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for reading

I like this article. I like articles that empower people.

I would like it if more people looked inside of themselves for strength and power, rather than looking outside of themselves for something to blame, or for some politician to save them.

I enjoy the Organic Prepper

Hey Michael I finally got around to giving another garden update, but it has morphed into something else, somewhat related to this article you posted here.
