Editor's Note: Acts of civil obedience to the truth such as the Quakers made to give birth to the antislavery movement in America correspond EXACTLY with the stand that Bob Schulz, Ed and Elaine Brown, Dick Simkanin, Sherry Peal Jackson, Irwin Schiff, Larkin Rose, Joe Banister, Al Thompson, Bill Lear,
Vernice Kuglin, Robert Lawrence and many many others have been making against institutionalized slavery that have been perpetrated against We The People by the corporate-government-military elites of the world since the ink dried on the original Declaration of Independence in 1776.
