Here is something of local origin, where it is mentioned that South Africa is a corporation.
This from Thuli Madonsela:- One of her most important findings reads: ‘It is my considered view that the president, as the head of South Africa Incorporated, was wearing two hats, that of the ultimate guardian of the resources of the people of South Africa and that of being a beneficiary of public privileges of some of the guardians of public power and state resources, but failed to discharge his responsibilities in terms of the latter.’
Here is what is allegedly excerpts from US Court Rulings in the past, showing our relationship with the State:
a. "Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction,
and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other
artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance,
is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The
legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law,
agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than
corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them."* S.C.R.
1795, **Penhallow v. Doane’s Administrators 3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall.
b. "the contracts between them" involve U.S. citizens, which are deemed as
c. "Therefore, the U.S. citizens residing in one of the states of the union,
are classified as property and franchises of the federal government as an
"individual entity"",* Wheeling Steel Corp. v. Fox, 298 U.S. 193, 80 L.Ed.

There is both good and bad with this system. The purpose of this article is more to educate about these matters than to judge the system. Whether a system is good or bad mostly depends on the intentions and actions of the people who control it. We could have an utopian society, with the same system if it was run by people that had the good of all in mind.
The only other possibility is that we out of our own free will gave up our sovereignty and agreed to do all kinds of things for free for the “juristic person” SOUTH AFRICA and allowed it to fine us when we did not follow all it's crazy rules and regulations (even if our “transgression” did not cause any harm to anyone or anything). The only problem with that is that for that to have happened lawfully we needed to be fully aware of what we did and all the consequences such a decision would have. If that was the case, one should be able to tell When, Where, How and Why such a decision was taken. Can you answer that?
I think it is important that we are aware of these things. If you do not understand how something works, you can't do much about it. If you know how cars or computers work, you can fix them yourself if you want. If we know how society works then we can fix it too.
