Freeman bollix and Grant See

Girlfriend's 22 year old lad is a nice kid but a bit daft and has been influenced by this freeman philosophy.

Apparently the grand poobar of the freeman movement in Australia is some loon called Grant See who claims to be former SASR. None of my contacts have heard of the geezer.


Girlfriend's son got stopped by plod for not wearing a helmet on push bike (a legal requirement in Oz) and, having been influenced by this freeman bollix, refused to give name and found himself banged up. The kid now thinks he's Nelson Mandella instead of a naughty boy.

Anybody know this See bloke? Any advice for talking sense to a daft 22 year old?

I do worry that the Fools Loose on the Land do occasionally infect otherwise harmless individuals (usually slightly dim ones) with their particular brand of lunacy.

The Scots ones who keep referring to the sanctity of Magna Carta are among my favourites ...
As Australian law is basically the same as British, the guy needs to say NOTHING, and make ozplod prove he is guilty of an offence. Seems a bit petty if story is gen...

nothing wrong with SAS selection unless you follow a shorrt philosophy
I'm pretty sure that the prominently tiered summit, behind the chap with the prominently receding hairline, is indicative of a shield volcano.

Other than that,and offering the advice I was given when shopping around for my first motorcycle helmet that "ten dollar helmets are for ten dollar heads" - I can't help.


I've had a think about it and now I'm now positive it is a shield volcano.

I'd go further than that and claim it was a shot taken from Mount Barney towards Mount Lindsay some time between 1979 and 1983, given the overcast at about 3,500 feet some time between May and August.

Gardening gloves and secateurs were in vogue for quietly moving around the scrub in those days. Very much quieter and surprisingly a great deal faster than swinging a machete. It is actually quite sensible.

If it is a piccy of one of our 'them' I'm a bit surprised at training on Mt Barney, I thought they wandered around Mt Wiangaree, where the secateurs and garden gloves had a real purpose.

Just guessing......
