Declaration of Sovereignty, Personal Information and Education

Who is Mark McCoy and why should you care?

Synopsis

What's to say? I Have spent the majority of my adult life between Illinois and Missouri, notwithstanding a few extended sojourns within the respective borders of this country's other former republics, now federal municipalities.

I've held many jobs. I never stopped educating myself and picking the mind of every brilliant person whose path I crossed. Of all the jobs I've had, I can honestly say that entrepreneurship was the most satisfying, although not the most profitable. I love law, philosophy, reading, and working to understand the human condition. I presently work in information technology (networking, web hosting, consulting...), legal research and private assistance of counsel (research legal matters, write briefs, case analyses, appear in court as legal counsel but not representative), as well as education and general study......

Public Declaration of Sovereignty, Expatriation, and Dissolution of all Previous National and Political Allegiance

Synopsis

In the course of a lifetime, when one discovers and submits to a truth that evinces at the confluence of all which is physical, spiritual, and reasonable in a natural world; and there find that which had previously been accepted as truth to be a yoke of ignorance and fear; and those who fitted the yoke, secured its place, and assigned its encumbrances, to be interlopers between would-be-beasts and sovereign beings. Thus, but one recourse presents itself in remedying the ignorance born from having accepted institutionalized sanctimony that perfunctorily acknowledges a Creator, yet compels servitude and obedience to earthly authority, with but one choice, that is, to claim a rightful place in this world which the Supreme Creator has provided for all, as equals amongst all, rulers above none, sovereigns amongst sovereigns, and bound only by the moral duty to live the term of a life as peaceably and prosperously as possible at whatever cost deemed just and at no expense to any other.......

Public Declaration of Sovereignty, Expatriation, and Dissolution of all Previous National and Political Allegiance (Annotated with discussion)

Synopsis

(Prior to making this Declaration, I studied the circumstances giving rise to much of the turmoil, strife, and suffering in our world and this country in particular. After only forty-something years on this planet even I can see a marked change in society and government. Does government dictate to society, or is society antecedent to government? Is it that government is society's response to its problems, or are the problems in society a result of government? I understand and agree with the concept of government. Government admits to man's imperfections. If everyone were a reasonable, rational, and conscientious individual then government would not be needed. If a society is comprised of individuals, then who is there to protect themselves against if not irrational, unreasonable individuals? Government is that mutual protection against unreasonable, irrational individuals. However, once power is established in an institution or body of men, that power is never relinquished unless done so through force of people reclaiming that power. I see more-and-more powerless people and more-and-more powerful institutions. I see people abandoning their responsibilities in favor of adopting government as their source for reason. This in itself is not necessarily bad, for those submitting to such an existence do so at their own peril and theoretically the damage is limited to those living under maligned authority, but the cancer has metastasized and now infects other societies through conscription, force, and pervasive ignorance. What recourse does a free man have when he is either to submit to what his conscience identifies as injustice and injury, or to reclaim his place in this world as his own sovereign, beholding to no artificial construct or expedient acting as, or calling itself, a just government? Rather than wander the maze of deceit, obfuscation, and threats; and when seeking aid from apparently responsive servants am met only with further injury through lies and dissemblance; I am taking myself back to my natural state, fully informed and possessing reason and knowledge, choosing anew where my allegiance will lie and to whom I will submit. I believe that those in government will either  not understand my rationale or reason, since many of them believe that power begins with them, when it is each individual, responsible, and sovereign man and woman that breathes life into their office through their consent. My consent, if required to be given, is not consent, but homage. If consent is given, it can be retracted. Through this Declaration, I correct my previous mistakes in giving allegiance, assistance, or energy to, and thereby being bound to support through my labor and property, a government that does not comport with the basic concepts of what government was intended to be; viz., an expedient in providing for the mutual protection of the life, liberty, and property of those who consent.).......
