Robert Sudy is a seasoned researcher of pseudo legal theory, having been involved with the movement on social media in Australia for close to a decade. The mythology behind most pseudo legal concepts is extremely peculiar, and understanding the concepts requires journey into the conspiratorial and demon-haunted mystical shadow world of the online community. Robert’s personal journey into “The Freeman Delusion” begins with himself being firmly convinced of the “commercial argument”, passing on the information to others online for several years, and applying the strategies in driving and several other matters. After New South Wales Magistrate David Heilpern patiently took the time to comprehensively reject all the pseudo legal arguments contended in his final judgment, Robert’s search for a hint of legal merit in the theories gathered momentum.
Armed with a thorough understanding of the concepts theorised, he took the “devil’s advocate” approach through 4 years of online debates with some of the most prominent leaders in the movement, both in Australia and overseas. He concurrently researched how the individual arguments were rejected previously in the higher courts, and dividing legal fact from pseudo legal fiction, slowly debunked the fundamentals one by one. The conclusions reached in his journey are compiled in this comprehensive analysis of around 50 separate and yet connected pseudo legal theories, citing hundreds of references, from cases in the federal and higher state courts in Australia and overseas, the associated domestic provisions in legislation, and other reputable legal sources around the world.
While concepts like the “strawman” have been referred to by the courts as “Litigation Poison”, this analysis is ultimately a call to reason for all involved in perpetuating these internet myths, that ultimately can only cause harm and loss to those gullible enough to act upon the information. If people attempt to apply these legally unintelligible OPCA concepts in serious matters before the courts, this damage can unfortunately include incarceration, broken families, severe financial hardship, psychiatric detention, and loss of homes. Accordingly, when stripped bare of any alleged association or applicability to law, the OPCA doctrine stands naked as the *political movement* it really is. Although it contains right-wing anarchist elements, the ideals expressed are purely POLITICAL, not LEGAL, and ultimately, the law courts are not the venue for political change.
QUATLOOS – Robert Sudy – Australian OPCA Mythbuster “He describes himself as a true believer who eventually saw the light and moved on to the bright side. The book isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s almost 500 pages and being continually updated. It makes Meads v Meads seem like a brochure.”
AUSTRALIAN PARALEGAL FOUNDATION – The Freeman Delusion – Free E-Book by Robert Sudy – “This E-Book is the most comprehensive guide to the delusion that some people call “Freeman” or “Sovereign” or the countless other names that the Courts have characterized as Pseudo Legal (stuff that sounds like it is legal talk but more accurately described as gibberish) that collectively have been labelled OPCA Litigants. This book will help you understand the myths and break it down in simple English why these groups exist and how they are misleading people into harm.”
Jane Glover – “I often recommend this book and post linked excerpts from it, in response to pseudolegal statements i see being spouted to unsuspecting people. Though far from being an expert myself, Rob Sudy’s e-book has given me valuable tools enabling me to identify many such OPCA misconceptions and has provided reliable access to all the relevant proven facts, to refute them and to hopefully help some people to avoid becoming entrapped by useless pseudolaw beliefs. I highly recommend the e-book Freeman Delusion: a fully referenced e-book by Rob Sudy, to any seekers (layperson &/or professional) of logic and facts regarding this Consensus Legal Reality we live in. Much healthier for ones mind and wallet, than becoming emotionally trapped into believing cult-like delusions and illogical false-hopes from some OPCA ‘alternate pseudolaw dimension’. Delusions, with an epic (but very avoidable) legal failure rate, in this current functioning reality.”
Steve Prickle Clancy – “I often pass on and share your information. Share your page and now this website. For what it may be worth your facts have helped my sanity enormously while I am dealing with people that have drunk the cordial. And I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you.”
ODDemocracy AU – “Hi Rob. Your work has been invaluable to me in trying to stop the spread of these dangerous ideas on twitter. Wish you were there so that I could call on you for help sometimes!”
