How we began
In this year of 2022, a growing number of men and women, living under the authority and jurisdiction of the International Common Law Court (CLC), forming a constituent assembly have expressed their wish, with a determined and an ardent will to position themselves as sovereign beings, with a view to constituting a nascent community, with all the inherent attributes.
How we work
We the People, living men and women have created this lawful charter to establish the founding principles for our Cruinn Community. This community will ensure the wellbeing of the people and will provide a common law justice system, free from statutory authorities. To further enhance the position of the people we have created a body of CLC Constables, to maintain and enforce the decisions of our common law courts and have created a system to provide education, healthcare, and financial stability through our own currency ‘the Cruinn’.
Are there rules?
The Cruinn Community have created Principles and Orders of which one should live by. You can find these on the site.
Lets protect it
The Declaration of Our Community was recorded into the Common Law Court ‘Book of Deeds’ on the 21st November 2022 for preservation.
We the People, living men and women have created this lawful charter to establish the founding principles for this Cruinn Community. This community and our islands will ensure the wellbeing of the people.
We the people declare that, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under mandatory rule by legal statute. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.
The Declaration of our new Community is signed below by using a sample of the living men and women who helped to create our Community. Taking the signatures of one hundred (100) living men and women. ‘We the People’ have established the birth of our new Community and our position under the Common Law Court. These signatures will also include the signatures of our elders.
The Declaration of Our Community is hereby recorded into the Common Law Court ‘Book of Deeds’ on the 1st September 2022 for preservation, for all time.
Our Community operates a common law jurisdiction and under the following laws:
1. No one shall cause a breach of the peace,
2. No-one shall cause any harm to another,
3. No-one shall cause any loss to another,
4. No-one shall cause any injury to another, and
5. Everyone must remain honourable in their promises and contractual agreements.
Our laws above are applicable to all living men and women within our Community, regardless of their position, this also includes our elders.
Future laws may only be created by a jury of our peers through a lawfully convened Common Law Court. Our founding elders and our outlying communities do not have the power to create laws.
Our Community will have a body of elders (living men or women) who will ensure that our founding principles are adhered to. This body shall consist of ten individuals who will remain in position until such time as they wish to retire. In the event that any of the elders needs to be replaced, the replacement will be selected from our population and by a vote of the existing elders. In the event of a tied vote, the deciding vote will be given by the Founding Father.
This principle makes further provision for the use of powers by the founding elders to make decrees, orders, rules, regulations, and other subordinate legislation so as to assist with the development of this “Community”
While Our Community operates under a common law system, this charter confirms the acceptable use of these powers and the ability to create new, in the future.
Powers created under this lawful charter will be used to assist with the development and enforcement of its common law principals.
The appointment of elders will determine their seniority. To become a founding elder, you must be at least twenty-five (25) years of age and to become a community elder you must be at least twenty (20) years of age.
This principle establishes the right to make further appointments for local elders, these elders will assist in local communities which will be created depending on population growth.
Local elders will be used to ensure that our founding principles are adhered to.
Local elders will also be bound by the above terms in relation to their position.
Although we have obtained the land and dominion for Our Community, the birth of this Community will only be established when we have the signature of one hundred (100) living men and women. This number is to be taken as a sample of the people from this Community and who also stand together under the Declaration of the Common Law Court.
All living men and women in this Community shall be entitled to their inalienable rights, which were granted at birth. Under no circumstances will these rights be altered, removed, or charged for.
Other than application by the living to join our Community, the new-born children of a national will automatically be accepted on the condition that the appropriate paperwork is completed.
Any individual who fails to act honourably or fails to comply with our founding principles, laws, decrees, orders, rules, regulations, and other subordinate legislation will lose their status as a national. This to be confirmed by our founding elders.
To become a national of Our Community you must be living, this will be confirmed with your birth declaration with the Common Law Court. You must also have obtained ownership of your Fictitious Name by claiming it through an application on the Common Law Court website and finally you must also be in possession of you own CLC Currency wallet.
Our laws (Principles) above are applicable to all living men and women within our community, regardless of their position, this also includes our elders. Future laws (Principles) may only be created by a jury of our peers and through a lawfully convened Common Law Court. The founding elders of the Cruinn Community do not have the power to create new laws (Principles).
Below you will find our Founding Orders (The 'laws' on which we live by), These have been created by the Cruinn Community to ensure the wellbeing of the people and will provide a common law justice system, free from statutory authorities.
Order No. 10001/22 – Lawful Remedy
Any living man or woman who has suffered a wrong at the hands of another individual has a lawful remedy under common law, to address the wrong done. The reason for this is very simple: Since all are equal under the law, then each individual has a duty of care to others, such as to make sure that – whatever action we take towards each other – we have the common law principles behind those actions, and thus we can live together in peace.
Order No. 10002/22 - Harms
In common law, any individual who has – or attempted to – or has conspired to – cause damage to another individual, will have committed a wrong, these wrongs are known as “harms”, and are subject to our founding principles. This includes ‘harassment’, such as ‘threats with menaces’, which is considered to be ‘psychological damage’, and also ‘defamation of character’, which is also considered to ‘damage a reputation’.
Order No. 10003/22 – Enforcement
Any individual that has suffered a harm by the actions of another individual will be able to address this, by using a common law process (commercial lien) to correct the said wrong.
If common law has been used to address the said wrong(s) and the process has been concluded (perfected), an application can be submitted to the Common Law Court, requesting a decree and/or court order to assist with the enforcement of the decision.
Order No. 10004/22 – Authority
This order confirms that although our elders ensure compliance with our founding principles, authority will at all times remains with the people.
Any decree or order issued will only be obtained when it has been established that the provisions required under Order No. 10003/22 has been complied with.
All decrees and orders will be dated and signed by the court officials, having obtained the appropriate ruling from a jury of our peers.
