Importance Of An Allodial Title

Good Essays
tried to make sense of how we currently regulate our roadways.
I first looked closer at the vehicle titles the state provides, given the fact this this was of great interest to me. What I discovered was that the titles they provide are not an Allodial titles which would constitute absolute ownership of real property but instead feudal titles. These feudal titles are exactly like the land titles granted to peasants by nobles in medieval Europe when feudalism was the dominant social system. These titles stated that, “Peasants were obliged to live on their lord 's land and give him homage, labor, and a share of the produce, notionally in exchange for military protection” ("Definition of Feudalism in English:"). The significance of this is that

So how could someone prove ownership without a title? I actually found several ways to prove ownership, the best options were to either get an allodial title, conditionally sign a state title, form a notarized document, or to make use of our guaranteed due process. Given the fact that due process comes in court only after legal citation my primary goal became to seek out an allodial title. As it turns out vehicle manufactures create allodial titles called Manufacturer 's Certificate of Origin or MCO, this is transferred to dealerships and they are provided upon purchase of a vehicle ("Vehicle Information Services"). Unfortunately I found out getting one of these would not be possible, all thanks to a play on power by the DMV. When you buy a vehicle, the dealership sends the MCO off to the DMV so it can be registered, the only chance you would ever have at getting the MCO is if immediately upon purchase of a brand new vehicle you requested the MCO and to not register the vehicle. After the DMV does get the MCO it is as good as gone, they scan it “for their records” and shred it, I discovered this when I personally called the DMV requesting my MCO. I was informed that it would be impossible for me —or anyone else for that matter— to attain this

    Rousseau believes that “every man by nature has a right to everything he need” (The Social Contract, 168). One thing that every man needs is property. However, “The right of first occupant… does not become a true right until after the establishment of the right of property” (The Social Contract, 168). People do not have a right to a piece of land until the right to own land has been erected, and this right must be established by the sovereign. Furthermore, when claiming land, there are rules that people must adhere to.…

    In class, we discussed the notion that in traditional agricultural societies people will do anything to maintain their control over their land. Your argument that this impulse to defend their land develops from the notion that it will provide them with sustenance and therefore life, serves as strong evidence to intimate relationship the medieval person had with the land. Even the nobles, who were far removed from the fields, had a deep respect for the land. The land was the source of their wealth as well. Perhaps for nobles, land was even more important.…

    These lords or so called barons administered their own estates, dispensed their own justice, minted their own money, levied taxes and tolls, and demanded military service from vassals. Feudalism in short was a relationship of obligation and mutual service between vassals and lords. A vassal held his land, or fief, as a grant from the lord. So in return for the land a vassal was required to attend to the lord, help administer justice, and contribute money if needed. The vassal must answer to summons to battle…

    Feudalism is a special system that was made and used in medieval Europe. Feudalism was an economic, military and government system that was developed during the Middle Ages and has never been copied by any other system in the world (Biel 9). Peasants provided products for the nobles who gave them protection off of the land that the lord received from the king in exchange for loyalty and military. It was effective because of the promises and oaths made from one person to another. It was a system based on feudal oaths and contracts between lords and vassals, in this case a knight, in which a vassal would pledge loyalty and service to the lord who, in exchange, gave the vassal a gift/fee (Biel 9).…
