You're wrong.

CIC is not offering to contract with you.
They are inviting you to treat.
You then offered a contract to them, which they declined.

CIC displayed an invitation to treat.
You offered CIC an offer to contract.
They declined your offer; i.e no acceptance.
No contract.


In fact, so simple, its even on Al Gore's internet;
An invitation to treat is an action inviting other parties to make an offer to form a contract.
These actions may sometimes appear to be offers themselves, and the difference can sometimes
be difficult to determine. The distinction is important because accepting an offer creates a binding
contract while "accepting" an invitation to treat is actually making an offer.


Oooops ... I just remembered; you have a law degree.
So you already know all this!
Wasn't my intention to teach your grandmother how to suck eggs ...
Anarchism stands for liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from shackles and restraint of government. It stands for social order based on the free grouping of individuals.
It [...] maintains that God, the State, and society are non-existent, that their promises are null and void, since they can be fulfilled only through man's subordination.
