Capitalization Rules & legal fiction – Why Names are in CAPS?
by anonymous2truth on Thursday, 07 April 2011 at 12:20
Many people are involved in diligent research concerning the use of all capital letters for proper names, e.g.,
JOHN PAUL JONES as a substitute for John Paul Jones in all court documents, driver’s licenses, bank accounts, birth certificates, etc.. Is the use of all capital letters to designate a name some special English grammar rule or style? Is it a contemporary American style of English? Is the use of this form of capitalization recognized by educational authorities? Is this an official judicial or U.S. government rule?
And/or style of grammar? Why do attorneys, court clerks, prosecutor’s judges, insurance companies, banks, credit card companies, utility companies, etc. always use all capital letters when writing a proper name?
So hear is the grammar Rule for how to write names…
1. Names of people
This one may seem obvious, but there’s also a catch. Of course, you capitalize the first letters of a person’s first, middle and last names (John Quincy Adams), but you also capitalize suffixes (Jr., the Great, Princess of Power, etc.) and titles. Titles can be as simple as Mr., Mrs. or Dr., but they also apply to situations wherein you address a person by his or her position as though it’s their first name. For example, when we talk about President Lincoln, we are using his role as though it were a part of his name. We don’t always capitalize the word president. Indeed, we could say, “During the Civil War, President Lincoln was the president of the United States.”
It seemed that these particular grammatical experts had no idea why proper names were written in all caps.
Law is extremely precise. Every letter, capitalization, punctuation mark, etc., in a legal document is utilized for a specific reason and has legal (i.e. deadly force) consequences.
All Caps in Email – within contemporary – modern – English, an electronic message, a.k.a. e-mail, in capital letters. They say it’s “screaming” to do so. By standard definition, we presume that is the same as shouting or yelling. Are all
The Authorities shouting at us when they corrupt our proper names in this manner?
The reason behind the use of all caps when writing a proper name. The US and State Governments are deliberately using a legal fiction to “address” the lawful, real, flesh-and-blood man or woman. We say this is deliberate because their own official publications state that proper names are not to be written in all caps. They are deliberately not following their own recognized authorities.
In a nutshell, fabricated legal persons such as “STATE OF TEXAS” can be used to fabricate additional legal persons. However, a law can never originate from a fictional foundation that doesn’t exist.
