This is one of the problems with using the phrase "common law". I am not speaking for the state but it is my understanding that it is considered to be the accumulated judgements of the courts which is quite different from the Freeman definition. The problem with their definition is shown up by Godel who proves that, no matter how simple the starting axioms of a philosophy, by the time the philosophy (common law) becomes complex enough to be useful in the real world, contradictions will always occur. The process of building one judgement upon another has resulted in statute law that contradicts its beginnings.
The way I see it, everyone has total freedom unless their freedom imposes on someone else's freedoms. That is when contracts of compromise are agreed upon to the greatest benefit of all.
