Asset & Privacy Protection

Legal Strategies

Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the State. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the State and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation.”

– Hale vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 74-75 (U.S. Supreme Court in 1906)

It is a common belief that forming a corporation, LLC, partnership or other statutory organization in order to conduct business is a smart strategy for protecting assets and privacy, and reducing tax exposure. While these entities offer more protection than the act of operating and filing as an individual taxpayer, they do not provide protection against lawful acts of the State against such business structures. Why? Because:

  • The State is the creator of a corporation;

  • The State is the sole authority and sovereign head over the corporation;

  • The corporation is subject to the laws of the State which limits its powers;

  • The corporation has no constitutionally protected rights, except, perhaps, the 14th Amendment;

  • The corporation is an artificial person;

  • The corporation submits to a State Charter declaring it is a creature of the State;

  • The corporation is created for the benefit of the public;

  • The corporation is a franchise of the State;

  • The corporation is a privilege granted by the State.

If you have been operating a business for decades via a corporation, LLC, or other government-owned entities, most or all of the facts put forth above are probably scorching your eyes for the first time, and you are beginning to realize how government bureaucrats come to believe that they can order owners of these entities to do any immoral, unconstitutional act which they desire. You are probably also under the belief that you are required by law to pay income, Social Security, and employment taxes when, in fact, most people are not required by law to participate.

Continuing with Hinkle:

There is a clear distinction in this particular between an individual and a corporation and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for examination at the suit of the State. While an individual may lawfully refuse to answer incriminating questions unless protected by an immunity statute, it does not follow that a corporation vested with certain privileges and franchises may refuse to show its hand when charged with an abuse of such privileges.”

Unfortunately, most business owners discover these facts only after they’ve suffered great losses and paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes. Those who look “outside the box” for solutions usually discover that the extremely rich have been conducting their affairs through powerful, commonly-unknown legal structures for centuries. Passage To Liberty discovered these structures over 25 years ago and has used them successfully to protect assets and privacy ever since.

If you are starting a business, now is the perfect time to ground it in a structure that will protect you, your earnings, and your customers. But which structure or system of structures is best for you? Corporation? LLC? Partnership? Private Unincorporated Association? Business Trust? Private Foundation? Passage To Liberty has decades of experience creating and operating constitutional organizations. We can help you determine the appropriate entity or entities, and help you avoid the many traps which inexperienced or State licensed advisors will likely guide you into.

If you have an established business and are ready to adopt some of the advantages employed by the global elite and recover your rights, you’ll need to follow a strategic transition plan designed specifically for your situation. Depending upon your business, it may take one or two years to untangled and re-organize your affairs, so we recommend that you schedule a private consultation right away.

Technical Strategies

Ubiquitous data collection, which used to be covert, is now openly performed by Big Tech and government agencies. Shockingly, this unconstitutional invasion of privacy is ignorantly embraced by most people worldwide. When questioned about their numbness to the far reaching aspects of intrusion into their lives, they typically respond, “There’s nothing I can do about it” or “I have nothing to hide”. Both of these answers speak to the critical need for truthful education in this area, for just a few follow-up questions reveal to the previously ignorant person that everyone has things he or she wants to keep private, and that there are solutions that can be implemented.

Here are some questions to ask yourself regarding personal privacy:

  1. If my Social Security Number, mother’s maiden name, and bank account information were used by someone unknown to me to drain my bank account, would it disrupt my life?
  2. Do I have any email communications with anyone that I don’t want displayed on a medium which anyone can see?
  3. Have I ever done anything I regret while within listening distance of a cell phone, computer, smart TV, electronic assistant (Alexa, for example)?
  4. Do I trust my government?
  5. Do I trust the billionaire fascists who control Big Tech and don’t abide by the impositions they place upon everyone else?

If any of these questions stir concern within your heart or mind, perhaps it is time to put some protections in place around your technology. Click here to learn more.
