There is a very good reason why this page is entitled “Liberty University” instead of “Freedom University”. Liberty means freedom PLUS personal responsibility. Those who want to avoid personal responsibility seek “freedom” instead of “liberty”. What most politicians deceptively call “freedom” is really nothing more than legislatively created “franchises” that are designed to enslave the people using their own sin and DESTROY your God-given rights, not protect or preserve them.
“Liberty Means Responsibility. That’s why most men dread it.”
[George Bernard Shaw]
“For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish [presumptuous or irresponsible] men— as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of [RESPONSIBLE TO] God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood.”
[1 Peter 2:15-17, Bible, NKJV]
There is a grave need in America for educational curricula and materials to teach ordinary people (the “joe six pack” types) about freedom, law, sovereignty, and taxes. Instructional materials which are succinct and boil the issues down to their barest, common-sense essentials but which at the same time grab and captivate people’s hearts and minds is very difficult to find indeed. The government and the legal profession have also done their best to keep this kind of information out of the hands of the masses, because it threatens and undermines their power and influence. Offerings available on the Family Guardian Website, while they are very complete and detailed, do not teach these concepts in a simple, or high-level manner that is appealing to large crowds of newly introduced people who are interested in learning more about the subject. The focus of this page is therefore to offer educational materials that are devoted to such a purpose. It is our intention to use your gracious donations to our ministry for the following purposes:
- Develop animated, video tutorial versions of all Powerpoint slideshows that can be viewed on both high- and low-bandwidth internet connections
- Expand the educational curricula offerings over time so that a complete curriculum of freedom materials are available for those who want to start “Sovereignty Fellowships” in their area and throughout the country.
- Assemble these core training materials into a CD-ROM and accompanying workbook suitable for mass-distribution at low cost
- Develop “Fellowship Articles”, that will help volunteers organize and fund and maintain their Sovereignty Fellowships, so that we have a sustainable political base upon which to institute the political and legal and tax reforms that are so desperately needed.
- Use the above materials to create a nation-wide network of politically and legally active Americans who are focused on change and reform, and who partner frequently and regularly with other like-minded institutions and organizations.
- Pay for the high bandwidth required to host the large files appearing on this page.
The above approach is the only way to take the United States of America and its corrupted government back from the thieves and Pharisees who have hijacked it for their own personal gain. The U.S. government and the state governments were established as a “public trust”, and the “trustees”, who are our “public servants” have taken it over and made it into their “alter ego” for personal gain, because the “beneficiaries”, We the People, fell asleep at the wheel. We were put to sleep by a corrupted government public education system that doesn’t teach children about law or the Constitution or the Separation of Powers. The present de facto U.S. government and the state governments have now become what the courts commonly call a “sham trust”, which ironically has become this way mainly because of these same corrupted courts.
The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares
Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy [our public dis-servants] came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop [We, the American People, are the “crop”], then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy [our corrupted public dis-servants] has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest [the final judgment], and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat [us believers and followers of God’s law] into my barn [God’s house].”’
[Matt. 13:24-30, Bible, NKJV]
The problems and obstacles that we face as a people are mainly political, and not legal, in nature and require a remedy within the political sphere. This page was inspired by the following article:

The educational materials below are sequenced in a progression of increasing complexity. We suggest that you view or read or watch them in the order they are presented because they build on each other. You may download and freely reuse any of the materials appearing here for personal use or group viewing. However:
- They may NOT be sold and must be provided at cost to whomever you give them to.
- The use of our materials may not have a commercial motivation.
- The copyright notice and author information must remain intact. If excerpts of our materials are used, the source should be acknowledged and a weblink must be provided to this website.
- SEDM “tax information or services” may only be used in strict compliance with our Member Agreement and Disclaimer. This means that anyone who obtains our “tax information or services” using this website may read those materials, but they may not submit them to any third party in the legal profession or government in connection with disputing or establishing a tax or refund liability unless they have completed up to step 14 of our Path to Freedom, Form #09.015 and are in full compliance with all the requirements of our Member Agreement. For a definition of “tax information or services”, see section 2 of our Member Agreement, Form #01.001.
- If the materials are presented to or distributed to a group, then they may NOT be presented or “used” in conjunction with or as part of any presentation or effort that:
5.1 Is connected with UCC redemption. We completely disapprove of UCC redemption for the reasons indicated in our form entitled
Policy Document: UCC Redemption, Form #08.002.
5.2 Includes any of the false or illegal arguments appearing in the free “ Flawed Tax Arguments to Avoid” pamphlet.
5.3 Includes any of the false arguments contained in the Policy Document: Rebutted False Arguments Against This Website, Form #08.011.

We insist on the above to ensure that we are not associated with or discredited by knowingly false or questionable approaches of well-intentioned but often ignorant and presumptuous neophytes within the freedom community. This is the only way to ensure that we bring nothing but honor and glory to the Lord, which is the main goal of this website.
It’s actually better if you download the materials below and view them offline so that you will conserve our precious bandwidth, because the files tend to be rather large. To download any one of the items and store it on your computer, simply RIGHT-CLICK on the link and select “Save Target As” and then tell your computer where to store the file. It’s that simple. We would also like to recommend that you make an effort to try to contact and thank those people who courageously sacrificed their time and their work to produce the excellent free materials appearing below.
Years of research and effort have been devoted to making sure that all of the materials on our website are entirely consistent with each other and consistent with both God’s law and man’s law (OFFSITE LINK).
“It is, of course, true that statutory construction [or interpretation] “is a holistic endeavor” and that the meaning of a provision is “clarified by the remainder of the statutory scheme … [when] only one of the permissible meanings produces a substantive effect that is compatible with the rest of the law.” United Sav. Assn. of Tex. v. Timbers of Inwood Forest Associates, Ltd., 484 U.S. 365, 371, 108 S.Ct. 626, 98 L.Ed.2d 740 (1988).”[U.S. v. Cleveland Indians Baseball Co., 532 U.S. 200, 121 S.Ct. 1433 (2001)]
Please therefore give yourself plenty of time to read and study the materials on this page before you run off half-cocked and demand answers to questions or conflicts that arise in your mind as you are reading something. If there are conflicts in your mind, chances are it is because you haven’t given yourself enough time to digest these materials or because you are making presumptions that simply cannot be supported with facts and evidence. An important goal of this website is to challenge all such presumptions and eliminate them, which is sure to cause confusion in your mind until you look at the evidence for yourself using materials on this page. We have found that the best approach for resolving conflicts in your mind as they arise is to:
- Identify the topic which they relate to within one of the list of memorandums of law found later in section 7.8 of this page and to read the memorandum, which usually clears up the confusion by providing all the facts and law that are relevant to the subject of the memorandum. That is why we mention and quote these memorandums so frequently throughout our publications.
- Search the SEDM Subject Index Page for the topic you have a question about and read all the references listed on the subject.
If questions arise in your mind about the issues discussed here that you can’t resolve by further study of our extensive educational materials, you may wish to visit the following resources, where you can meet and interact with like-minded freedom fighters such as yourself. We are simply not equipped with the resources necessary to answer your many questions individually, so please consult the following resources instead:
