A great deal of freedom and privacy can be achieved by properly using entities. Rather than conducting your affairs in the name of the strawman, you can use entities. An entity is a legal fiction that is treated as a person by the legal system. An entity can do almost anything a living soul can do such a own and operate a business, make investments, have a bank account, buy/sell/rent property, take out or make loans, purchaser vehicles, etc. The ultra wealthy have been using various entities to hold and protect their assets for generations. They follow this simple motto, "own nothing, control everything". Their assets are owned by various entities and they control the entity.
There are many forms of entities including but not limited to: C corporations, S corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), trusts, and foundations. An entity can be formed in many different jurisdictions (states or nations). Most people pay an attorney or some other service provider to form an entity for them but this can be expensive. With some study you could discover that forming an entity an not that complicated. Once the entity is formed, it can get an EIN (tax ID number) and then it can open a bank account.
We have studying various types of entities for over 15 years. We have experimented with several differnt types including: C corporations, S corporations, LLCs, pure contract trusts and a special type of non-profit corporation (hereinafter Non-profit Corporation). Each entity type has advantages and disadvantages. Each state where these can be formed has advantages and disadvantages as well. After all of this study, we have concluded that the two best entity types for most people is the LLC and the Non-profit Corporation.
