Thanks for the correction, phiwum. I also have wasted a few hours here and there over the years looking at car wrecks.

But seriously, I think the interesting thing left to talk about regarding sovcit/freemanism is what the next iteration of the mindset might be. A few Canadian freemen have "lit out for the territories" and are living in RV campers, or isolated cabins. It's not for everybody, but it may be the next thing.

It'll be interesting to see what impact, if any, Trump being in office will have on the movement.

There is a populist/nationalist movement going on in many places.

Here in the states a core of Trump supporters are so deeply cynical that I can't see them being anything but deeply disappointed when the Trump agenda gets heavily modified by the House, Senate and the courts.

It could be that the next wave of deeply anti-government types will trace their roots to what they see as failed nationalistic movements.

There are several freemen and sovcits gurus who are so terribly racist. I'd hate to see them get in the same room with a bunch of disappointed nationalists.

It also helps if you talk about what was in it as well.

The video has been taken down due to a copyright claim by Bobby Menard.

The video was Van Balion II's reposting of Menard's own filming of his infamous encounter with Toronto police* that led to his arrest for impersonating a police officer.

The comments page was not kind to Bobby.

So it seems Menard is taking time out form his busy schedule at Real3 Games to surf the net for any mention of his name.

What is the deal with Real3 Games anyway? Is there a web site? I did some googling but all I'm finding are references to their business registration:

Every so often he makes a reference to the "business" on his Facebook page. Back in January he said the launch was imminent, but that he had to keep the details secret.

Every once in a while, so as to make it seem work is ongoing, he asks if any of his Facebook friends has expertise in in a particular area.

My observation may be off base, but it seems to me that sovcit/freemen gurus are often driven to portray their work lives as vibrant and successful as a result of their embrace of freedom.

It just wouldnít do for the guruís life not to be touched in every way by the brilliance of his own teachings.

When you consider the difficulty of explaining how the guru deals with taxes, laws and regulations in the market place itís better that he just pretends heís living large.
