Claiming your rights
I’d like to clarify a few points for Jim Gyton [KMN Letters, Feb 19].
Firstly, a private citizen is an oxymoron because a citizen is an artificial person that owes their allegiance to the Queen and has duties and obligations or benefits and privileges.
Once again, a resident is another type of artificial person that has different duties and obligations or benefits and privileges, like paying rates, and not chopping trees.
To have rights and freedoms you must be a flesh and blood human, unfortunately you won’t find reference to a human in many council acts and statutes.
Rights and freedoms are afforded only to those who claim them. Have you claimed yours?
