      Void (law)

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


      Jump to: navigation, search
      In law, void means of no legal effect. An action, document or transaction which is void is of no legal effect whatsoever: an absolute nullity - the law treats it as if it had never existed or happened.
      The term void ab initio, which means "to be treated as invalid from the outset," comes from adding the Latin phrase ab initio (from the beginning) as a qualifier. For example, in many jurisdictions where a person signs a contract under duress, that contract is treated as being void ab initio.
      Black's Law Dictionary defines void as:
      Void. Null; ineffectual; nugatory; having no legal force or binding effect; unable, in law, to support the purpose for which it was intended. Hardison v Gledhill 72 Ga.App. 432, 33 S.E.2d 671”The dictionary further goes on to define void ab initio as:
      Void ab initio. A contract is null from the beginning if it seriously offends law or public policy in contrast to a contract which is merely voidable at the election of one of the parties to the contract.”In practical terms, void is usually used in contradistinction to voidable and unenforceable, the principal difference being that an action which is voidable remains valid until it is avoided. The significance of this usually lies in the possibility of third party rights being acquired. For example, in Cundy v Lindsay (1878) 3 App Cas 459 a fraudster induced Messrs Lindsay & Co to sell to him a quantity of handkerchiefs. The fraudster then sold the handkerchiefs on to an innocent third party, Mr Cundy. The fraudster was convicted, and the money was never recovered from him. Lindsay sued claiming ownership of the handkerchiefs. If the contract of sale was held to be voidable for fraud, the fraudster could pass good title Mr Cundy (provided that the contract had not yet been avoided), and Lindsay & Co would only have recourse against the insolvent fraudster. However, if (as was in fact held) the contract of sale was void ab initio, then title did not pass, and Lindsay could claim back the handkerchiefs as their property, and Mr Cundy was left with only a claim against the insolvent fraudster.
      However, the right to avoid a voidable transaction can be lost (usually lost by delay). These are sometimes referred to as "bars to rescission". Such considerations do not apply to matters which are void ab initio.

      peace

      i heard a few people spit out different terms related to being a sailor, navigating the ocean,etc....that ALSO relate to commerce nowdays.

      the Constitution and Treaties VS some shit called Maritime Admirality Law??

      one was how a Judge sits on the Bench, which means "bank" ? which i could see cuz da court system now is all about $$$

      and how babies are ''birthed'' in ''delivery'' rooms VS being ''bErthed" (location at seaport/harbor) and delivery like UPS or FED-EX delivers a package.

      but one thing that fucked my head up was the ''negro'' vs neCro in Latin...neCro meaning ''dead'' and came across "Civiliter Mortuus". so maybe THIS is how police be just murderin niggas n gettin away with it, but 90% of the time it ONLY happens to "negroes/necroes" from the 'Dark-Ages' to Colombus and colonization & chattel-slavery (POW-status?) and being ''blacked'' out of history. not knowen our real names, religion(s), history, what land(s) to call home,etc...... even made it illegal for us to know how to READ and dumbed us down.......



      Civil death
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      Jump to: navigation, search

      Civil death (Latin: civiliter mortuus) [1] is a term that refers to the loss of all or almost all civil rights by a person due to a conviction for a felony (a crime punishable with more than a year's imprisonment) or due to an act by the government of a country that results in the loss of civil rights. It is usually inflicted on persons convicted of crimes against the state or adults determined by a court to be legally incompetent because of mental disability[2].

      In medieval Europe, felons lost all civil rights upon their conviction. This civil death often lead to actual death, since anyone could kill and injure an ex-felon with impunity.[3] In the old German empire, a person declared civilly dead was called "vogelfrei" ("free as a bird") and could even be killed since they were completely outside the law.

      mental disability....... being a ''minor'' or ''minority'' or ''ward'' (baby or retard) of the STATE.....like how they use to call us BOY or GIRL when we grown.....

      In law, a ward is someone placed under the protection of a legal guardian. A court may take responsibility for the legal protection of an individual, usually either a child or incapacitated person, in which case the ward is known as a ward of the court, a ward of the state or formerly as a ward in Chancery.

      Thank you. A state slave, cannot use his legal alien right to vote once *convicted. Amendment 13 don't say you can't vote if you become a slave. But that interpretation of the law does not apply to me, since they use an electoral college, and pick who they want. My vote satisfy's a cencus count for state apportionment.



      Homo sacer


      Homo sacer (Latin for "the sacred man" or "the accursed man") is an obscure figure of Roman law: a person who is banned, may be killed by anybody, but may not be sacrificed in a religious ritual. The person is excluded from all civil rights, while his/her life is deemed "holy" in a negative sense.




      [edit] Homo sacer according to Agamben

      ItalianphilosopherGiorgio Agamben used this concept for his book Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life. Agamben describes the homo sacer as an individual who exists in the law as an exile. There is, he thinks, a paradox: It is only because of the law that society can recognize the individual as homo sacer, and so the law that mandates the exclusion is also what gives the individual an identity.


      Agamben holds that life exists in two capacities. One is natural biological life (Greek: ZoŽ) and the other is political life (Greek: bios). This zoe is related by Agamben himself to Hannah Arendt's description of the refugee's "naked life" in The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951). The effect of homo sacer is, he says, a schism of one's biological and political lives. As "bare life", the homo sacer finds himself submitted to the sovereign's state of exception, and, though he has biological life, it has no political significance.

      Agamben says that the states of homo sacer, political refugees, and those persecuted in the Holocaust and other sites are similar.

      As support for this, he mentions that the Jews were stripped of their citizenship before they were placed in concentration camps.

      Thus, Agamben argues, "the so-called sacred and inalienable rights of man prove to be completely unprotected at the very moment it is no longer possible to characterize them as rights of the citizens of a state", following in this Hannah Arendt's reasoning concerning the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, which tied human rights to civil rights. Although human rights were conceived of as the ground for civil rights, the privation of those civil rights (as, for example, in the case of stateless people or refugees) made them comparable to "savages", many of whom were exterminated, as Arendt showed, during the New Imperialism period. Arendt's thought is that respect of human rights depends on the guarantee of civil rights, and not the other way around, as argued by the liberalnatural rights philosophers.
