The general populous may not be aware that from the 'colonisation' of Australia since 1788, for 40 years there was a law instilled called Martial Law.
If you know your 'law':
What Act ceased the state of Martial Law?
Please put your answer in the comments section of this post.
What many may perceive as 'law' is actually a private contract with a corporate entity (or corporation conglomerate), without full disclosure being presented before you therefore realistically fraudulent and deceptive conduct against your 'person'.
The penal colony laws are alive and well today and are indicative not of a country of democratic rule or of 'freemen' but rather serfs and corporate salves.
This is just one example of how penal law rules apply to the peasants, from the Herald Sun article from 30 March 2016 of the title:
Big shiver tipped after clampdown on wood collectionTHOUSANDS of Victorians will be banned from collecting firewood from public land this year.
Community leaders fear elderly people using wood for heating and cooking are most vulnerable to the bans across northern Victoria.
For the first time since European settlement, public reserves and parks from Mildura to Shepparton will be closed to firewood gathering from this winter, with all public land wood collecting to end in northern Victoria within five years. The state firewood industry expects bans will apply across Victoria within a decade.
