Jeff Deist and Joseph Becker discuss the illusion of judicial remedies for most Americans; how Becker is attacking cronyism in Nevada; how a Rothbardian legal system might deal with torts, crimes, and externalities; and how the statist 20th century courts created a phony legal distinction between fundamental liberties and economic liberties.
