Isn’t that how Xristians always see themselves?
But in what experts describe as an inadvisable legal strategy, Bauer has demanded to represent herself in court, appeared to threaten a court clerk with prison time, and declared herself a “self-governed individual” with special legal privileges.
A sovereign citizen (as we learn later) believes that the gubmint keeps “copies” of citizens and so if you state that you are the “flesh and blood” original, well, you have special rights to claim the pod people. The article is fascinating on this point.
Bauer does not simply appear in court, she clarified during a June 11 proceeding via Zoom. “I am here by special divine appearance, a living soul,” she told a judge that day, while stating that she did not want an attorney.
Sometimes the fool for a client trope really applies.
“I do not stand under the law,” she said. “Under Genesis 1, God gave man dominion over the law.”
