01. Breakdown of Family & Tribe | Reclaiming the Sovereign Mind | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

With the surrender of the mind to external authority and control, will power is soon to follow. With no will power to individuate or discover your true self, we become totally dependent upon the indoctrinated dogma and belief systems upon which we were conditioned. This is defined as “mental slavery”.

Until we examine our beliefs, reexamine our indoctrination, challenge external authority and leap into a bold inquiry into the nature of life and the universe, the status quo of this mental prison, victim mindset will continue ad nauseum.

As the immortal Bob Marley once sang passionately, “Free yourself from mental slavery”.

Breaking Free of Traditions

Family and tribe (i.e., village, neighborhood, community) have been the center of human life for millennia. The most basic root chakra of the human being needs to belong to a family and tribe for safety and security. This need is hard-wired into a human being and irrefutable.  

So the question remains what family and tribe were you raised in, and how do you lovingly break free of the traditions that holds us back from fully actualizing ourselves? Until this question is answered, you and I are easily subject to manipulation, hypnosis and control by external forces and institutions. 

In many tribal cultures individuation and self-actualization were not valued above the common good of the entire tribe. The needs of the individual were secondary. It seems reasonable that a balance between individual self-interest and the collective needs of the community must be considered in a healthy and vigorous society.

Family, Community & Tribe Under Attack

The Global Power Structure and elite have waged a decades long war against the family, tribe and community because it is against their self-interest to have strong, independent families or tribes.  Strong communities do not need the State. Weak or dependent ones do.

In the “Communist Manifesto”, the breakdown of the family was essential to achieving centralized control by the State. Today, the State is no longer imagined as a single nation, but all the nations in the world aggregated under a Global Power structure.

In Western Civilization, it is self-evident that traditional family systems are breaking apart, further dividing, alienating and wounding both adults and children emotionally, creating insecurity, angst, a rising suicide rate and a loss of belonging to a community. This trend is also emerging in more culturally homogenous countries in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa, China, India, South and Central America.

Furthermore, the sexual revolution of the 1970’s and widespread gender confusion of the early 21st century has blurred the lines between male and female, and polarized a variety of sexual orientations and preferences (e.g., gay, lesbian, transgender, etc.).

Marriages between male and female are at an all time low while divorces are on the rise. Gay and lesbian marriages are now legal while an alarming number of single parents from all races are raising children on their own. The loss of family, community and tribe has left millions of people vulnerable, without basic safety and security needs being met, further becoming dependent upon the State for their economic survival. So how does the State control a modern family in the usA?

Marriage License as Three-Party Contract with the State

The marriage license is a three-way, secular contract with the State and is based on ancient property law. The State is the dominant party and the parents have no property rights in their children. 

In a patriarchy, the man owned his seed and the eggs of the female were considered property. If a man and woman got married, they had to get the “consent” of the father who gave his daughter (i.e., property) away. 

If the father did not consent, they might elope, but without the consent of the father, the property (i.e., title) did not convey under the Common law. In a matriarchy, all property conveyed through the woman.

Technically, the marriage license is a business license allowing the husband and wife, in the name of the marriage, to enter into contracts with third parties. If the marriage dissolves, the “divorce” amends the contract, but the terms remain in effect.

Common Law Marriage

If you live together for seven years and the father neither consented nor contested the marriage, the couple would be legally married under the Common law. A Common law marriage is still recognized in every American state Republic with the exception of Louisiana which is a Napoleanic Code state (i.e., French law). 

State as the Legal Parent & Parens Patriae

In the American legal system, the doctrine of “parens patriae” confirms the State is the legal parent and the children produced from a State-licensed marriage are the property and chattel of the State. The parents are only conditional caretakers, thus the doctrine “in loco parentis”.

Following from old property law, if you are chattel (i.e., a slave) or the property of the State, then you need the consent of the State (i.e., the father) to marry or divorce which is evidenced by the marriage license, and any property derived from the marriage (i.e., children) belong to the State.

In 1921, the federal Sheppard-Towner Maternity Act was passed creating birth “registration” or what we now know as the “birth certificate”. It was known as the Maternity Act and was sold to the American people as a law that would reduce maternal and infant mortality, protect the health of mothers and infants, but had other purposes. 

One of those other purposes provided for the establishment of a federal Children’s Bureau designed to cooperate with State agencies in the overseeing of its operations and expenditures. This can now be seen as the first attempt of “government by appointment”, or cooperation of state governments to aid the federal government in usurping the legislative process of the several states of the Union as exists today through the federal grant-in-aid to the states programs. Sheppard-Towner set the framework for the inclusion of substantial provisions for maternal and infant care in the Social Security Act of 1935. 

The objectives of the New World Order, Global Power structure, Deep State and the elite are the same as the Communist Manifesto. Dare to read it and weep.

Thus, the breakdown of family and tribe is in the best interests of the State seeking always to expand its power base. When the family system is breaking down, the State becomes the new, improved parent. 

The State imposes controls over the raising of the children through mandatory public education, public health agencies and the Department of Human Resources. The State decides what is taught in public schools; what the child will learn and based on testing scores what career track is best for the child (just like in Communist China). The State decides what schools they’ll be able to go to based on race, sex and economic considerations.

Thus the State takes precedence over the biological parent in influencing and controlling the child until they are of legal age. This is evident in child custody battles or decisions over compulsory medical treatment.

The State decides what is appropriate social behavior, and what is politically correct. The State decides and defines abuse, and what is appropriate affection or discipline in the family.  

All this power in the hands of the State further alienates children from their biological parents who are often left as nothing more than the custodians of State property. May we not surrender our power or rights over the raising and education of our own children to the State. No more marriage licenses.

Biological Parents Often Powerless

As a parent have you ever felt that your children were out of your hands?  Read the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and you’ll get a chilling sense of what is on the horizon for “parental rights” in the New World Order (NWO).

In traditional, cohesive tribal systems, families were too strongly bonded to be broken or replaced by the State. But as communities and tribes have weakened parents can be more easily influenced by the media or compelled by public education to stand behind the State’s agenda. May parents not become agents of this tragic agenda.

We the Children As We the People 

Like many generations of parents before them, We the Children are now taught to give our minds, power and sovereignty to external authority and State sanctioned government institutions. Thus, We the Children became slaves instead of sovereigns in relationship to the social and political manipulators, whether the State or an indoctrinated biological parents. 

The result is yet another generation who have lost their freedom and right to be a fully fledged human being.  These are the lost generations. We the Children must soon become We the People again.

Hope for the Children, Youth & All Future Generations

Our hope for the future lies in new generations of enlightened, awakened, aware children and adults establishing the conditions necessary for sovereignty, beginning with physical, spiritual, mental and emotional sovereignty, then extending these internal aspects into the external legal, economic and political realms. These are the “seven aspects of sovereignty”

The ultimate challenge of our time is to free enough minds, young and old – to transform the well-conditioned patterns on Earth from negative (i.e., destructive) energy to positive (i.e., creative) energy. Within this transformation lies the solutions for every problem, every injustice that plagues the human race. May we live free in an unfree world as sovereign individuals families and communities, or else die as the chattel property of the global manipulators. The choice is ours.

The Wisdom of Insecurity

We cannot predict the future. None of us know the exact date on the calendar when we are going to die. We may feel insecure at times, because insecurity is the way of life. There is no security, not even in death. The “wisdom of insecurity” is a profound Eastern philosophical idea that is beyond the comprehension of  most Western minds. 

May we get back to values that respect and honor all life, and our deepest, truest, most honest sense of our human nature. Not only are we often disconnected from this precious planet, many have lost touch with their own humanity.  We must reject “trans-humanism”, stop acting like robots and claim our innate humanity instead. This may be the most difficult, and rewarding journey yet!

Economic Sovereignty

  1. An economic system involves the exchange of goods and services.
  2. You are responsible to be a producer in that system, not just a mere consumer.
  3. It is not the money, but the circulation of money and the production of wealth that matters in a true economy.
  4. Embrace the principles of prosperity consciousness.
  5. Remember the principles and economics of free enterprise and circulation.
  6. Attitudes and beliefs must be changed with knowledge, education and persistent hard work. Achieve economic sovereignty.

Legal Sovereignty

  1. A course of study to learn about your individual rights and how they are taken away through your ignorance of the law 
  2. Choose lawful Sovereign Citizenship.
  3. Understanding Common law commercial, administrative and judicial remedies.
  4. You have the right to do business in the jurisdiction of choice.
