The Ryan Bundy Paradox
Bundy, who is representing himself in the conspiracy case against the refuge occupiers, declares himself an “idiot of the ‘Legal Society’” and not subject to federal law, according to the documents.
“I, ryan c, man, am an idiot of the ‘Legal Society’; and; am an idiot (layman, outsider) of the ‘Bar Association’; and; i am incompetent; and; am not required by any law to be competent,” Bundy wrote in a motion filed to U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown.
If he is an incompetent idiot, and saying that he is one frees him from Federal law, then he is neither incompetent, nor an idiot. But if he is not an incompetent idiot, then he is one for saying that he is. Therefore he is an incompetent idiot just as much as he is not.
