A Passion for Liberty

"The point of joining civil society as far as the American system is concerned isn’t, then, to give up but to secure the basic and all the derivative rights human beings have. Those who argue otherwise aren’t on solid grounds. That much is pretty clear, so they must reinterpret the American founding to shore up their case for American statism. Yet some of the most influential legal scholars advance this untenable position -- namely that the law in the American tradition aims to limit the liberty and rights of the citizenry -- and numerous prominent law schools teach it as well."
