Meet Donald Miller, "Un-Person"

by Will Grigg

In the totalitarian lexicon invented by George Orwell, there is no more frightening term than “un-person.” That expression described a living human being of whom the State took no official notice, and who had no rights the government would recognize.

That term has been applied to tens of millions of people – from inmates of the Soviet gulag, to victims of official “disappearances” in Third World dictatorships, to detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Ohio resident Donald Eugene Miller Jr. recently had a similar experience when a judge informed him that he was legally dead.

In 1994, Miller disappeared from his home. He explains that he didn’t know what to do after losing his job, and succumbed to alcoholism. He worked odd jobs in several places before returning to Ohio in 2005. His parents informed him that a judge had ruled that he was legally deceased.

In early October, the same official, Hancock County Probate Court Judge Allan Davis, ruled that Miller is still dead in the eyes of the government, despite the fact that the healthy 61-year-old man was sitting in his courtroom. That ruling means that Miller will not get back his driver’s license, Social Security Number, or the other government-issued credentials certifying that an individual has the state’s permission to exist.

98243 This article conveniently skirts around the inherent ethical dilemma in this case by failing to mention the man's wife. After he 'died', she received his Social Security benefits, and has drawn on them for 19 years. If he were to be declared legally alive, she would be forced to pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars to the government.

9869 You left out the part where he skipped out on $25,000 back child support as the reason he fled. it makes a difference.

9869 & you also failed to mention that it took 8 years before he was declared dead during which his wife and children were left to their own devices without the child support he owed. At any point in those 8 years he could have appeared and set things right before he was declared dead.
If he wants to be alive again he can pay the $25,000 he initially owed in child support to his children and the Social Security death benefits received by his wife and children to the government. That seems fair.
