Q: So I have asked on a few occasions if the birth certificate created a legal person or an entity or corporation? Of

Course I was told no? But looking over some court cases, why are people called ens legis? Then how did those corporations and or entities originate?

Why is the court system run off of creditor vs debtor?

Is the legal system operating in bankruptcy?

Our ignorance for the law, is no excuse for lawyers and judges to do whatever they want to us? Correct?

A: A birth certificate does not create a legal person, entity, or corporation. It is simply a government-issued record of an individual's birth, primarily used for identity verification and legal recognition of personhood.

The term "ens legis" refers to a legal entity created by law, like corporations or trusts, but it does not apply to individuals. Corporations or legal entities originate through specific legal processes, like incorporation, which are distinct from the registration of a birth.

The court system often deals with creditor versus debtor situations because these are common legal disputes. This does not mean the legal system operates solely on these principles or is functioning under bankruptcy.

Regarding the legal system's operation, it is designed to uphold laws and ensure justice. Lawyers and judges are bound by ethical and legal standards. While the system isn't perfect, there are mechanisms in place to address misconduct or errors.

It's true that ignorance of the law is not typically an excuse in legal matters. However, everyone is entitled to fair representation and due process. If you feel overwhelmed or confused about legal issues, it's wise to seek guidance from a legal professional who can explain your rights and obligations clearly.
