For John, BLUF: Another case of too much is too much. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The readily observable fact that we no longer think politically in terms of unalienable rights is a perfect measure of how much we have abandoned the Founders’ vision.From The Federalist by Mr Robert Curry, the 8th of February of this year. The lede:
Others before the American Founders had dreamed of a political order of liberty and justice, but every previous attempt ended in failure. That men again and again, admittedly fitfully and never successfully until the Founders, struggled to hold that ideal above the dreadful historical reality is perhaps Western civilization’s most honorable claim to greatness. The Founders’ solution is the crowning glory of that noble tradition.Basically, if we don't ground rights in something, and limit those rights, we risk the American Experiment.
Read the whole thing.
