Homer Plessy caused no victim yet the “authorities” said he acted in the wrong and thus had to pay a ransom…

When in New Orleans, the ninth stop of the Police Accountability Tour, Pete Eyre & Garret Ean sought to underscore the fact that legislation is not law by pointing to a situation that unfolded there not too long ago – the ransom levied against peaceful traveler Homer Plessy because he rode in a “white’s only” train car, which was said to be illegal.

In the video Garret mentioned Lysander Spooner’s tract – The Constitution of No Authority, which is definitely worth becoming familiar with. It’s not a stretch to say that it may present to you a completely new way to look at the united states constitution and other legalese documents that some claim you’re beholden to despite the fact that you’ve never signed them.

 If you’d prefer to read “The Constitution of No Authority”, on the lower-right corner of the embedded document below, type “272” to be taken essay.
