To take up a stance of diffidation: (lawful dissent -"Formal relinquishment or renunciation of faith, allegiance, or amity: solemn defiance of an enemy; declaration of hostilities:", -which is a royal command addressing the entire realm agreed by a constitutional monarch to defend the rule of law (see clause 61), but whilst also agreeing that no physical harm will be brought against the monarch or its heirs (the equal consideration within the treaty of Magna Carta) -; is the only genuinely lawful thing that can be done today.

The 1215 Great Charter constitution Magna Carta ordained that, through 'Judicium Parium' (common law trial by jury), the power to punish be removed from government and justices (judges)

Proofs within clauses 20, 21, and 39. The judicial duty and power to punish and set sentences are restored "in perpetuity" to the jurors who are the judges in every case (lawsuit) civil, criminal, and/or fiscal.

20: "A freeman shall not be amerced for a slight offence, except in accordance with the degree of the offence; and for a grave offence he shall be amerced in accordance with the gravity of the offence, yet saving always his "contentment"; and a merchant in the same way, saving his "merchandise"; and a villein shall be amerced in the same way, saving his "wainage" if they have fallen into our mercy: and none of the aforesaid amercements shall be imposed except by the oath of honest men of the neighbourhood."

21: "Earls and barons shall not be amerced except through their peers, and only in accordance with the degree of the offence."

39: "No freemen shall be taken or imprisoned or disseised or exiled or in any way destroyed, nor will we go upon him nor send upon him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land."

40. "To no one will we sell; to no one will we refuse or delay, right or justice."

The 1215 Magna Carta was even celebrated in 2015...we don't (ever) celebrate any of the later versions that are said to have amended/superseded the original (which cannot be amended/superseded unless the people agree to it first) -(see Magna Carta clause 63).

The 1215 Magna Carta was sealed "forever." It says three times in its transcript (clause 1, clause 61, and 63).

Some of its clauses have fallen into abeyance through lack of use or requirement since the forests were cut down and for other various reasons, but that matters not whilst none of it has been repealed nor can it be repealed, except by the commonly expressed will of the people themselves.
