This is a legitimate question I'm asking here:

White folk love their magic incantations; if you cite the right texts from their Codified Precedences, you can forbid their soldiers from entering your home, or even touching you!

Are there such magic words to discourage bothersome white folk from harassing me if I take resources from their land?

(Is there an agreement the US government made with lakhota or generalized native americans permitting us walking/foraging rights on private lands?)

No but really someone with the skills, please look up the answer for this.

@lj_writes do you happen to have the resources, energy, and willingness to answer the above question?

@emsenn This isn't totally my wheelhouse, but I'll bend my librarian skills towards this sometime soon and see what I can find

@hummingrain Ahh yea! Awesome. It doesn't have to hold up well just enough that I could talk about it to a judge for ~20 minutes and they'll throw the papers out.

(Fun fact: I have /never/ been convicted of a crime, despite all my many many criminal actions. Fuck your magic!)

@emsenn The law's always so surprised when people manage to fight back on its own terms.

It's like it forgot it's just a complicated illusion

@emsenn Not in the next few days to the extent it deserves, but this article may be a useful starting point/overview: ir.lawnet.fordham.edu/cgi/view Throwing that out there so you can get a head start if you want before I look over it myself later in the week.
