Very well written with heartfelt words of wisdom.
Indeed, sovereignty is sacred and it’s the most tedious and arduous path on this 3rd and 4th dimensional energy.
Sovereignty also include everything that’s organic and in its natural form in all aspects of One’s journey – mentally, physically, emotionally, psychic/intuitive virtues of All It is.
The Oneness of sovereignty lies in being able to connect with All As One and not just as an individual.
Truly enjoyed reading this article. Thank you (to both of you, Conscious Optimist & Justin) for writing and posting this much needed energy of words being presented and shared with All who are on the path of One. Namaskar

There are many definitions of “sovereign” floating around on the web. Some view it as a title of nobility for a monarch, such as a king or a queen. Others contend that we’re sovereign by default: we simply must claim it and that’s it. According to yet many others, sovereignty seems to mean that one can do whatever one wants at any time; that rules and the law don’t apply to them; that all forms of hierarchy are somehow unjustified and evil, and that any system of justice or law, or government is also inherently evil.
So what is the correct definition? Please allow me to guide you into a comprehension of the concept, first by way of showing you what sovereignty is not, so that you can come to better understand what it really is. This is vitally important because ultimately, you, yes you, have a role to play in restoring the rule of law by becoming a true sovereign.
The word sovereignty indeed means many things to many people. And there are certainly more than enough folks out there willing to claim themselves as “sovereign” for any number of well-intentioned reasons. For example, some people, usually following a legal/law guru, understandably, want to get out of a problematic legal situation by transcending it through claimed “sovereign” status; others feel that the world owes them a high-ranking position at law simply because they exist. But without the competence to support your claim, it is null and void, even if it was made to the Secretary of State or via the UCC. And the powers that be encourage these fallacious actions because it gives their claims to power more weight.
In such cases, these false sovereigns muddy the waters for the people, confusing those trying to understand what sovereignty really is and how it can benefit humankind. What’s worse, the powers that be use encourage incorrect and misguided claims of sovereignty so they can paint all would-be freedom lovers as irresponsible fools with antisocial tendencies. Consider this statement from the Southern Poverty Law Center regarding sovereign citizens.
The strange subculture of the sovereign citizens movement, whose adherents hold truly bizarre, complex antigovernment beliefs, has been growing at a fast pace since the late 2000s. Sovereigns believe that they — not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials — get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and they don’t think they should have to pay taxes. Sovereigns are clogging up the courts with indecipherable filings and when cornered, many of them lash out in rage, frustration and, in the most extreme cases, acts of deadly violence, usually directed against government officials. In May 2010, for example, a father-son team of sovereigns murdered two police officers with an assault rifle when they were pulled over on the interstate while traveling through West Memphis, Ark.

As if the issue of asserting our freedoms in a lawful manner wasn’t complicated enough, half-cocked “sovereigns,” often led by false sovereignty guru’s online, make anyone declaring their lawful rights seem crazy. Freedom is quickly being rebranded by the powers that be, via various social engineering programs, as nothing more than a childish desire by a rabble of irresponsible people who want to ignore laws and do whatever they want. But to those who understand what true sovereignty is, nothing could be further from the truth.
So for the sake of the freedom of all people and the great work of our age to regain our truly sovereign status in law and society, a discussion about what a true sovereign is will be most helpful.
You might be wondering: “Well aren’t you claiming to be a guru by telling us what a sovereign is or is not? Where does your definition of sovereignty come from, and why should we believe you?”
Let me say, you shouldn’t believe me, not blindly. I’m not asking you to believe me because I am an authority in law, I’m asking you to think about what I am saying, and draw your own conclusions. If my knowledge is accurate, it should be obvious to those who take the time to verify via their own research. And if it isn’t accurate (which is certainly possible) please share as much so as a community we can have the best information possible. These aren’t the words of a false guru who wants blind obedience.
Where Does This Information Come From?
As a fellow truth-seeker and freedom-lover, I have spent a great deal of time and energy reviewing the law, sources of lawful research (such as official and alternative sources of history and philosophy in the freedom movement) as well as thinking carefully and honestly about everything I’ve uncovered. In other words, my knowledge doesn’t come from an external authority, it was built from within, as a result of careful study and discernment.
I will present my findings in a simple fashion, but I don’t want you to blindly accept what is offered. I encourage you to think carefully about the arguments presented herein, and of course, to do your own research. If you think you have a better argument, then please share it in the comments. In law, like in science, the best theory or argument is accepted as fact (for the time being), not a person with a bigger stick or certificate of authority. In this sense, we’re all in the pursuit of the knowledge of sovereignty together.
Let’s cut to the chase—a sovereign is, first a custodian of the truth, the law, and the rights of others in the realm. Unless you live an honorable and solution-oriented life for your world, you cannot describe yourself as sovereign. And we’ll elaborate on this statement in great detail below.
Now, I apologize to everyone I’m about to offend, but the following needs to be said: merely existing does not make you sovereign in law.
I can assure readers that the last thing a sovereign does is proclaim him or herself “sovereign” without having first earned the title through diligence, discipline, the pursuit of a comprehensively moral and constructive existence. That said, it should also be understood that we each have the potential to be sovereign if we’re willing to do the work it takes to master ourselves and act within that mastery to benefit others.
So let me be clear that this article is written in response to the widespread misuse of the word and concept of “sovereignty” within the truth movement.
The legal concept of sovereignty is a separate matter that this article does not discuss in detail—though everything herein is important to know for those looking for “legal” remedies. The misuse of the concept of “sovereignty” in legal matters almost always causes one more harm than good, as will be detailed below.
As an aside, it also needs to be said, in no uncertain terms, that the contents of this article should not be construed as “legal advice.” No—instead, this is about research, education, and empowering ourselves, which is altogether different from offering legal advice. This is my own personal take on the matter, based on years and years worth of research, contemplation, and nothing more.
Problems Asserting Sovereignty in Legal Matters
The reason why asserting sovereignty in a legal matter is problematic is primarily because the existing legal system is essentially an elaborate fraud that has co-opted valid lawful ideas, like sovereignty—preventing the people from using these good ideas to their advantage. Those in the legal system, such as lawyers, judges, and clerks, generally aren’t taught about true law; therefore, asserting your sovereign status to the system often results in more confusion and even greater prosecution.
Given that there is no rule of law, it is still essential to take the time to learn what real sovereignty is and how it can be used to improve your life.
Again, I can’t explain the whole legal and lawful situation in this article, but suffice it to say, the world needs real sovereigns—those who take the time to learn the law, act with honor, harmlessness, and in defense of the rights of others—so that the rule of law and true justice can finally be restored to our darkened world.
I know for a fact that many people who follow online truth/sovereignty gurus are mostly good people.
Unfortunately, I also know for a fact that a great many “law or freeman” movements out there are fraudulent, dangerous and promote false and/or incomplete information to many thousands of desperate people.
Indeed, one of the most destructive false-narratives promoted by these groups is the idea that you’re “sovereign” because you exist—that somehow, merely being born has imparted some magical esoteric, vaguely defined “right” to wield incredible decision-making power over the law and society in which you live. Some have even suggested that such lunacy is “the secret” to knowing how to deal with the legal system.
But as will be revealed, sovereignty is a status attained by hard work and dedication, not unlike the mastering of any other skill such as music, art, science, philosophy, or farming. If it isn’t reasonable to expect you can be a master blacksmith because you said so, then it should be easy to understand why sovereignty isn’t a frivolous label.
The purpose of this article is to provide a counter-narrative designed to undo the above psy-op—which is the belief that we can get out of legal trouble by saying the words “I am sovereign” in court. Again, this is not a legal discussion nor is it legal advice.
A suggestion I’d like to offer is to be extremely skeptical regarding the far-fetched promises sold to you by internet gurus. Please, please, please recognize that there is no simple way to convey detailed “legal know-how” in bite-sized chunks without comprehensive study to go with said chunks. Nor are there any silver bullets that will solve any and all of our problems with one fell swoop. There is no sense in jumping off “legal cliffs” because a charismatic online figure said that it would work; and I know firsthand, having been duped by such con artists in the past myself.
The Historical Misuse of Sovereignty
What should be clear at this stage is that a true sovereign is the very best among us, one who has knowledge and wisdom, using that power for the benefit of all. A true sovereign recognizes that the people are not their subjects, they are equals in sovereign potential. And that it is the duty of that true sovereign to slowly and carefully educate the people so they can one day be sovereigns in their own right. Keeping this in mind, we’ll now briefly examine contemporary governments with the aim of …
