Why do you call your trust natural? A trust is not something natural. It is created by man under man’s laws. Wo/Man under natural law, with your property protected under common law. Please help me understand.
What makes you think that something created by man cannot be natural? On the contrary – – it is only man who can rise in consciousness sufficiently to align with universal natural law far more consciously and intelligently than any other species.
Our reason for staying with the term Natural Law is very simple. For a sovereign trust to be not subject to the jurisdiction of any one geographic location or any one limited body of manmade laws, and yet for it to stay out of trouble, it needs to adhere to what is essential and universal to all types of laws. Have you read the eBook? This is clearly explained in the section on types of law. What is essential to all types of laws can only be called natural law.
It is not common law, because common law has never been perfect. For example, in the 1800s and early 1900s, under common law, women couldn’t vote, blacks couldn’t vote. Common law has been man’s best attempt to emulate natural law. We call our trust Natural Law because after five or six decades of collecting the world’s best clauses and fine tuning them, it has resulted in an instrument which has a very high degree of perfection. It is unsurpassed, to our knowledge. The concepts and principles in it would stand up not only in any fair court of manmade law, but we daresay it would be equally welcomed and respected by beings in any part of the universe.
