If you ever pick up a copy of Black's Law Dictionary and go to the "B" section you will find the term "Business." Business is simply that which occupies a man's time. There are two different categories of business 1) business in the ordinary course of life translated means that which occupies one's time in the ordinary course of life such as the right to work, travel,etc., and 2) business with an intent to realize a profit. Now if you turn to the "P" section you will find the term "Profit." Profit is simply a gain derived above costs and the value of labor. For instance if I offer to do work for you I will ask you to pay all costs and agree to pay the value of my labor. I am exercising a right to work. If I am a company I would quote you with an intent to realize a profit above costs and labor which is deemed a privilege apparently because in nature commerce is a privilege when the natural rules are might makes right.
The great deception is using language with multiple meanings but everything legal derives from business meaning an intent to realize a profit which is deemed a privilege and apparently subject to legal regulation or threats of compliance. My only objection is the misapplication of codes. If people want to exercise their so called unlimited and natural right to contract guaranteed by the constitution to be indentured servants ... ok fine, but count me out and stop kidnapping and trespassing against me for merely trying to exist.
