Every Law Dictionary will tell you "The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery" Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt.
You were reduced to slavery when you provided evidence that you were ungrateful.
FIRST -- understand what basic rights are. Prerequisite to understanding your basic rights -- read my essay The Three Rights of All Mankind.
SECOND -- understand that you were free from federal government until you volunteered. Here is the proof.
Back in 1798, under the U.S. Constitution (the same one we have today), the people living in Kentucky wanted assurance that they were free from federal law. They knew they were free from most federal laws but they remained skeptical. Vice President Thomas Jefferson reassured them in the Kentucky Resolves that state citizens are subject to only three federal laws. The three mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. Piracy, Treason and Counterfeiting.
"Resolved, that the Constitution of the United States having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies and felonies committed on the High Seas, and offenses against the laws of nations, and no other crimes whatever, and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, "that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,. . ."
Vice President Thomas Jefferson wrote both Kentucky Resolutions.

State citizens are subject to ONLY three federal laws. As a State Citizen, YOU WERE FREE FROM FEDERAL JURISDICTION, until you surrendered. When you volunteer into the federal government, you voluntarily submit yourself to a form of government that owes allegiance to two sovereignties.
THIRD -- understand that you volunteered.

Those who cannot take care of themselves must "...take the will of him on who he depends..." as Blackstone so eloquently stated. They have no say in how they are treated. There is no remedy for someone who is damaged when he "sees another managing his affairs and does not interfere to prevent it".
Convince yourself that you volunteered into the federal government. Search out all proof that the government might use against you in court.
Re-read the the parts above that you did not understand until you are willing to believe that it was your own fault for confessing (on a permanent irrevocable government record) to be an ungrateful freeman worthy of slavery.

Additional homework just to emphasize that you waived your rights. Convince yourself that an Amish man waived his religious liberty by getting a SSN. By getting a Social Security Number, You waive your religious rights to this "overriding governmental interest" according to the Supreme Court in U.S. v. Lee (455 U.S. 252).

1 Plunder is your way of life.
Frederic Bastiat in Economic Sophisms, Second Series, Chapter 1, The Physiology of Plunder, 1845:
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in a society, they create for themselves in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
