Further Thoughts on Limited Government

Filed under: Links to Greatness,Politics — williamthecoroner @ 22:11

Geek with a .45 said it much better than I did. When asked why not have laws that are the expression of the democratic will of the people? Why not?

The refutation of this point is a simple question: “Is there any process of democracy that will justly allow you to rape another against their will?”

If the answer is no, then there are limits to what the democratic will of the people can justly enable, and the remainder of the argument is about where those limits are, and by what process/axiom/principle they are discovered or established.

If the answer is yes, I don’t want to know you, it’d be best for you never to encounter me.
