A Quote from Democracy Defined: The Manifesto

There is no point in having sets of “rules”; to wit, statutorily-binding administrative regulations, unless you have a fair forum within which to adjudge their justice, applicability, and constitutionality (legitimacy).

The mutually reinforcing Australian and British Constitution prescribes the sole legal justice system for prosecution and defence of all Causes (lawsuits), civil, criminal and fiscal; that of the Common Law Trial by Jury Justice System. Let all of us Citizens from whatever background or political persuasion unite to get MPs and Senators (Lords, UK), i.e., parliament, to restore it by statutory Amendment.

See the Constitution’s binding rule of law summarised in the two attached ‘flyers’, PDFs:

1.) The Restoration Amendment Statute Program, Broadsheet #1. This summarises the Five Tenets of Constitution, law and history which are at the foundation of  Democratic Civilisation, sine qua non. Print out at A4 size.
2.) EIS4 The Juror’s leaflet, “Why Is Trial by Jury Important?” Printed out at A4 size, it folds neatly along the guidelines shown into a ‘flyer’ of one-third its width for fitting into a chap’s inner jacket pocket or a lady’s handbag. Suitable to pull out and hand around to start a conversation at any moment!

Are You a Freeperson or Slave?

     IT IS DEFINITIVE of a civilised society that government recognises as legal, the right of the people to live free from tyranny and enslavement: that is, tyranny and government oppression are recognised as illegal. To deter government which might have criminal objectives, this freedom requires to be secured by the threat of and when necessary the use of legal force. If no legal right exists to uphold liberty and resist illegal oppression from government and its employees, then liberty itself is not legal. If the law does not recognise and support the legal right of the people to resist lawlessness and oppression by anyone, including government, then justice and liberty are denied.
A government which judges for itself which laws are to be enforced, will impose all of those laws it chooses. However, some or all of its measures may be contrary to the legitimate interests and liberty of citizens. For this reason, it is necessary to have a tribunal independent of government, with power over government, to judge between the government’s enforcement of laws and those people who would resist such laws. The tribunal must be comprised of the people of the country at large who it represents, on whom the laws are to be enforced, for the purpose of ascertaining which laws are justly enforceable on the people, and which are to be annulled and expunged.
Such a unique tribunal is the Trial by Jury.
A government bent on injustice will always commit such offences as it pleases, and act tyrannically—unless it is faced with the fully effective deterrent of authorised legal resistance. Hence, to preserve civil peace, justice, liberty and uphold a legal rule of law, the Trial by Jury tribunals of the people require the full forces of law and order at their disposal.
If government denies Trial by Jury, that is, if juries are forbidden from judging between the government’s laws and those citizens who disobey or resist the oppressions of government, then government has absolute power, and the people are ‘legally’ enslaved by government. The general population thus subjected may not decide their rights and liberties for themselves, and are known to the law as slaves. As with many slaves past and present, by demonstrations of courage they might to some degree hold back their overlords and state officials who are their masters, but they are nonetheless slaves under the law. In this situation, the people have no power to judge peacefully over what they perceive to be criminal actions by government. Such government has the power to decide exactly what a person can say, do or be. The life, liberty, and property of every citizen are entirely in the hands and at the disposal of the statist politicians in power.
A government which can enforce its laws without appealing for consent from a tribunal which represents the people on whom the laws are to be enforced, is an absolute government dictatorship and is not accountable to the people. It can perpetuate its power and commit atrocities at its pleasure. Trial by Jury was emplaced precisely to counter such abhorrence. Following implementation of Trial by Jury, government cannot execute any laws by punishing violators unless it first receives consent of “the country,” that is, the people, through a unanimous jury.
Thus, Trial by Jury protects all people equally, and in a democracy the people at all times keep their liberties in their own hands, never surrendering them to government even for a moment.


The members of the legal profession who are Members of the Democracy Defined Restoration Campaign have learnt from this educational campaign and point out that the universally applicable legem terræ common law and the proper workings of its Trial by Jury Justice System have not been taught—let alone, pressed home—at law schools for a generation or more. The situation in regard to justice has long been equally degenerate in France, Germany and Continental Europe (EU).
It is essential for teens and adults to be educated about common law in general, and specifically, on the Two Ways Trial by Jury works to provide mankind’s model justice system by which equal justice before, and equal protection by, the law are furnished to all citizens; viz. Chapter Four.
