In modern societies around the world, every man and woman administrates two personalities with regards to living in society, most do so without even realising what they are doing. One person is the natural person, that is, the living human being, and the other is the legal person.
Historically, in the context of Roman law, the legal personality was recognised as being fictitious or artificial and was called the persona. This has been shortened to the person, which is the word used in Acts of Parliament or legislation.
It was in the person(a), that all rights, obligations and duties were vested, therefore, the legal person, which was established through the family name, has been perpetuated over time by virtue of being inherited by each generation.
The International Bar Association.
The foremost organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies is the IBA. Established in 1947, shortly after the creation of the United Nations, the IBA was born out of the conviction that an organisation made up of the world’s bar associations could contribute to global stability and peace through the administration of justice.
Fact. Every nation in the world has a legal system of some kind. Even if it is a remote tribal system of justice where a single chief decides the fate of village members, the rule of law is universal in its reach and scope. There are customs, or traditions that have become the bedrock of societies, and it is true that most countries in the world have a legal society, in fact, 170 countries out of 195 have legal societies that are members of the International BAR Association.
Consider the fact Police Forces around the world have striking similarities, shared policies, tactics, uniforms, and even the universal use of the word POLICE points to global centralisation.
All law is derived from canon law and began with high priests and spiritual leaders, such as Moses and the Ten Commandments.
For many centuries, judges have dispensed justice in the western world using the Bible as a means to compel people to tell the truth. The oath, still sworn by witnesses and defendants as they hold a holy book, has given the English language one of its most familiar legal phrases.
“I swear by Almighty God [to tell] the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
Furthermore, judges in the UK swear two oaths, the oath of allegiance and the judicial oath, both in the presence of Almighty God.
As previously mentioned, the UK, and Common Wealth countries, are governed by ‘Acts’ of Parliament and case law. In Europe and other countries around the world, codified rules have evolved from the Corpus Juris Civilis, which was issued by the Roman emperor Justinian I.
In the above image, section 1(3) makes reference to the word PERSONS. More about this in a moment.
First. Before a child is born, it is usually given a name by its parents. The etymology of the word name can be found below.
Not long after a child is born in the UK, a record of birth is created. Similar documentation is created depending on which country the child lives in. In the UK this is then sent to the General Register Office (GRO) or equivalent. This is how the government knows that a child was born and where to find its parents should they fail to register the birth within the required time limit.
UK residents can contact the records office of the hospital where they were born and complete a ‘Subject Access Request’ (SAR) to obtain a copy of this birth record.
The birth of a person
Every man and woman has two births, a live birth, when they are born, and the birth of their legal persona. Parents are issued with a birth certificate using the family SURNAME which denotes the birth of the legal person.
John = Name.
John SMITH = Legal name.
JOHN SMITH = Legal name.
John Smith = Legal name.
See EXAMPLE below.
The word etymology of ‘sur-name’ is interesting because the word ‘sur’ means ‘over’ from the root word *uper*, it also means ‘in addition to, above and beyond’. Translated in layman terms, sur-name represents the name that is ‘over and above’ your birth name, which is probably the root of the legal personality.
Now the basics are out the way.
I am a man. A human being. I administrate my person which is a legal entity. Man stands alone as an adult male by definition, at least in the 11th Edition of Blacks Law Dictionary. A person can be defined as being many things, including but not being limited to; human beings.
The most important entry is in relation to the persona. This shows how the legal name originated from Roman law and operated on the principle of two personalities, the latter being the person that had rights and duties applied to it.
The legal maxim ‘lex scripta’ which is found in the most up to date edition of Blacks Law shows that statutes of Rome can still be in operation.
The same edition shows how the PERSONA is the legal name. See below.
The EXAMPLE birth certificate demonstrates that UPPERCASE words are generally used for the SURNAME. On most government or local authority documents you will see the entire name written in UPPERCASE.
Stringing together English words in an uppercase format has nothing to do with the English language. In fact, if you look through official dictionaries and reference books about the rules of English language, such as the “New Oxford Style Manual”, you will find no precedent for writing entire English words in all caps.
All caps words are known as GLOSS words and are associated with GLOSSING. These words are also known as SIGNS because they are used in “ASL” or “American Sign Language” as shown on pages “665-666” of the “Chicago Manual of Style” 17th Edition.
Using all cap words without placing a hyphen between each word renders sentences grammatically meaningless. Void.
By writing in gloss or DOG LATIN you are writing in a language other than English.
THIS STATEMENT HAS NO GRAMMATICAL STANDING IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
