AFFIDAVIT. A written or printed declaration or statement of facts, made voluntarily, and confirmed by the oath or affirmation of the party fnaking it, taken before an officer with authority to administer such oath. Black’s 1st. See Note, commerce.
Note: The capacity to issue one’s solemn declaration of truth, one’s sacred word is the most basic, fundamental, underlying, foundational concept of all commerce, society, and civilization. Ari “affidavit” is a written statement under oath executed and sworn to before an authorized officer on the maker’s commercial liability that all assertions contained within the affidavit are true, correct, and complete, not misleading, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. An affidavit is the most solemn, unequivocal, and ceremonial means extant to express truth without evasion, concealment, deception, or insincerity. As distinguished from “testimony,” an affidavit is not subject to cross-examination and is intended to be a complete, self-contained document. All truth is subjective, and only each free-will being possesses the right, duty, privilege, and capacity to state that affiant’s own truth in accordance with the unique nature, perspectives, and priorities of the affiant. No one has the authority nor the ability to state the truth of another. As per the maxim of law: “The order of things is confounded if everyone preserves not his jurisdiction.” Because truth is supreme in Commerce, an affidavit is the most important document in Commerce and stands as the truth unless rebutted point-fpr-point by counteraffidavit signed and certified on the executing party’s commercial liability as true, correct, and complete (i.e. not misleading, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth). Exodus 20:16, the “Ninth Commandment,” states: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” The Bible is especially harsh on those who bear false witness. Lies are weapons that are easy to utter, difficult if not impossible to undo when spread as rumors, and Can destroy lives. People often act on what is told to them and kill or are killed on the basis thereof, such as by marching off to war, believing “authorities,” or blindly obeying one’s “superiors.” Caveat emptor is as wise an attitude in the field of words and ideas as it is concerning goods or services. For one group’s official attempt at avoiding the consequences of bearing false witness, see “Kol Nidre.”
