The information that I've presented in this library is here because
I believe that it's important to preserve and to disseminate the information.
However, it's possible that some or all of this information could become
unavailable without notice. I've had various such problems over the
years. Access to certain information on one or more of my websites
has been restricted. Access to the websites themselves has been restricted.
My access to certain websites in the Middle East was obstructed.
Even my own access to my own websites has sometimes been obstructed.
People have been placed "on a list" because of visiting one or more of
my websites. Some categories of my email messages have been systematically
deleted in route, never to be seen again. With that in mind, I suggest
that you download all of the information that's available here. Then,
when the various nazi thugs and meddlesome evangelists do their worst,
at least you'll still have the information.
I'll add additional information to this library when I'm able to do

Some Known Principles of Liberty
Principles of Liberty, by Sam Aurelius Milam III
Cause of Action There isn't a cause of action until there's
a victim. Someone cannot legitimately be prosecuted merely for something
that he might do. Prosecution cannot legitimately be based on mere
speculation. Prosecution legitimately can be based only on actions.
Obligation There isn't any obligation under duress. If
someone is compelled by force or by the threat of force to make an agreement
that he didn't want to make, then the agreement isn't binding upon him.
If someone is compelled by force or by the threat of force to do something
that he didn't want to do, then the consequences of what he did cannot
be held against him.
Presumption of Innocence A person must be presumed innocent.
He doesn't have to prove his innocence. His refusal to attempt to
prove his innocence cannot be used against him.
Burden of Proof If someone believes that a person is guilty
of something, then the accuser must prove it without the accused person's
help. The accuser, not the accused person, must bear the burden of
proof. A person doesn't have to do anything or say anything that
might help the accuser to prove his guilt.
Self Incrimination A person doesn't have to provide information
that might be used against him. His refusal to provide such information
cannot be used against him.
Silence An accused person doesn't have to provide any information
at all. His refusal to provide information cannot be used against
Jurisdiction A jurisdiction doesn't legitimately apply to somebody
unless he specifically and voluntarily submits to it. He doesn't
have to prove that such a jurisdiction doesn't apply to him. Anyone
who claims that a jurisdiction does apply to him must prove that it does.
He doesn't have to help. His refusal to help cannot be used against
