Freeloaders on the Land

Christopher Snowdon will outline the history and beliefs of the freeman movement and ask what it says about bizarre beliefs and ethics in the internet age.


Self-styled 'freemen on the land' believe that since they have never signed a contract in which they agreed to obey the law, they do not have to do so. They believe that the entire legal system is a sham and that by saying the right words in court, the judge will admit defeat and acquit them. The freeman on the land movement is one of the most peculiar conspiracy theories to have arisen in recent years, preying on the gullible and the desperate. In this talk, Christopher Snowdon will outline the history and beliefs of the freeman movement and ask what it says about bizarre beliefs and ethics in the internet age.

Christopher Snowdon is director of Lifestyle Economics at the Institute of Economic Affairs. His research focuses on lifestyle freedoms, prohibition and policy-based evidence. He is an occasional contributor to City AM and Spiked, and regularly appears on TV and radio discussing social and economic issues.
