  • The teaching of constitutional law in American law schools focuses primarily—in fact, almost exclusively—on decisions rendered by the United States Supreme Court interpreting the Federal Constitution. For teachers of constitutional law who believe that equality and liberty are quintessential to a free society, this has come to be a disheartening affair, as the Supreme Court of the United States has become increasingly conservative and antipathetic, if not hostile, to the recognition of individual rights....

  • eff Riggenbach’s book is a godsend for anyone who needs a crash course in revisionist history of the United States. What is revisionism? It is the retelling of history from a point of view that differs from the mainstream, which always treats the victor (the state) as glorious and the conquered (individual liberty) as deserving of its fate. Obviously the libertarian telling of American history is going to be different. The state and its creations are not the heroes. The producers of capital, the average people, the voluntary society: these are the forces that make up civilization....

  • The attention of the world has been called to the great strike and lockout in the building trades in Chicago because it rested upon the question of individual liberty--a question which is not only vital alike to the employer and the employe, but which affects every industry, every class of people, every city, state and country. It is a principle which antagonizes no motive which has been honestly conceived, but upon which rests--or should rest--the entire social, political and industrial fabric of a nation. It underlies the very foundation of free institutions.

  • The EU’s common purpose was principally economic and le- gal, but despite its economic strength, the EU is weak both as a political and as a military entity. People in the European Union take for granted personal, economic and social liber- ties, such as the freedom of movement. Attaining this level of individual liberty has been an incredible achievement. But very few EU citizens feel any responsibility to defend these liberties by military force, should the need arise.

  • Ron Paul is an amazing individual. Not only has he been the most consistent voice for liberty in the U.S. Congress in our time— perhaps in all time—but he is also surprisingly well versed in economic theory. Indeed, if I were to dissect one of his speeches or articles, I would have to treat him as I would a fellow economist, not as “a politician.”

  • About Mill: John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 – 8 May 1873), English philosopher, political theorist, political economist, civil servant and Member of Parliament, was an influential liberal thinker of the 19th century whose works on liberty justified freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was an exponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham, although his conception of it was very different from Bentham's. He clearly set forth the premises of the scientific method.

  • In their conceptions and explanations of illness and in their reactions to it, individuals and groups attempt, and expect, to be coherent. They try to present a view which makes sense to themselves and which is also clear to others who may find it difficult to understand why healers, patients and other interested parties follow a particular line of reasoning. When these arguments are seen by contemporaries to be well founded, this can often be taken as a sign of conformity to an acceptable form of reasoning which fits into a particular ‘cultural repertoire’.

  • Mental health laws exist in many countries to regulate the involuntary detention and treatment of individuals with serious mental illnesses. ‘Rights-based legal- ism’ is a term used to describe mental health laws that refer to the rights of individuals with mental illnesses somewhere in their provisions. The advent of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities makes it timely to rethink the way in which the rights of individuals to autonomy and liberty are balanced against state interests in protecting individuals from harm to self or others....
