More on Why I’m Not Scared of ‘person’

EinsteinPersonOfCenturyEvery dictionary I look at primarily defines ‘person’ as ‘human being’ or ‘man’, even law dictionaries. Yes, really. Look again yourself.

Most folks have been hypnotized to believe one definition rules and ignore the rest and ignore the context. Funny thing that. 😉

Who decides the context? Who decides what definition rules?

The master decides, not the servant.

Which one are you?

Become the master.

Stop acting like a servant.

Stop living in fear, as if others control you.

In today’s world of legal presumption, fraud and deception it is best to qualify the use of ‘person’ when  in a law/legal context by adding ‘private’ in front of it so there is no confusion about what the of person you mean. ie. ‘private person’ – all lower case, no hyphen

For those that have jumped on the latest “silver bullet’ process, “i, a man” the courts have now even started asking “i a man? So what? We are all man, big deal. What do you mean by that?”

I believe they are asking for you to clarify context. What type of man? One who is acting a representative capacity, of some kind? If you don’t clarify context they will roll right over you… silence means you lose.

person defined – Webster’s 1828 – NOTES:

  1. The first line is a historical source Latin reference in square brackets [  ] – what do square bracket mean? Is what is inside square brackets “the definition”? Think about it.
  2. NOTE the first FIVE definitions are ‘human being’ or ‘man’ as the meaning of person.
  3. NOTE the modification to the word person required in order to reference ‘person’ in a legal context specifically as “artificial person” in definition #8- which is defined as a type of person in law NOT the definition of person.

Most people argue the Latin reference in square brackets [  ] is THE meaning and #8 proves it. Really? Those same folks will tell you what square brackets at other times do/mean… but apparently they don’t mean the same thing here. hmmm

And what about all the other definitions that all define person as ‘human being’ or ‘man’ ? Does focusing on one definition, ignoring all others really make sense?

Who decides the context? Who decides what definition rules?

The master decides, not the servant.

Which one are you?

Be the master.

Stop acting like a servant.

Stop living in fear, as if others control you and define you.



PERSON, n. per’sn. [L. persona; said to be compounded of per, through or by, and sonus, sound; a Latin word signifying primarily a mask used by actors on the stage.]
1. An individual human being consisting of body and soul. We apply the word to living beings only, possessed of a rational nature; the body when dead is not called a person. It is applied alike to a man, woman or child.
A person is a thinking intelligent being.
2. A man, woman or child, considered as opposed to things, or distinct from them.
A zeal for persons is far more easy to be perverted, than a zeal for things.
3. A human being, considered with respect to the living body or corporeal existence only. The form of her person is elegant.
You’ll find her person difficult to gain.
The rebels maintained the fight for a small time, and for their persons showed no want of courage.
4. A human being, indefinitely; one; a man. Let a person’s attainments be never so great, he should remember he is frail and imperfect.
5. A human being represented in dialogue, fiction, or on the state; character. A player appears in the person of king Lear.
These tables, Cicero pronounced under the person of Crassus, were of more use and authority than all the books of the philosophers.
6. Character of office.
How different is the same man from himself, as he sustains the person of a magistrate and that of a friend.
7. In grammar, the nominative to a verb; the agent that performs or the patient that suffers any thing affirmed by a verb; as, I write; he is smitten; she is beloved; the rain descends in torrents. I, thou or you, he, she or it, are called the first, second and third persons. Hence we apply the word person to the termination or modified form of the verb used in connection with the persons; as the first or the third person of the verb; the verb is in the second person.
8. In law, an artificial person, is a corporation or body politic.
In person, by one’s self; with bodily presence; not be representative.
