On Locke's Argument for Government

07/30/2014The Journal of Libertarian Studies
What requires explanation or justification depends on what is taken as being given: what comes into question depends on what one already believes. The inertia of one's present outlook - sometimes too hastily labeled by others as a bias - gives one a sense of commitment without which possible...

Central planning and state control are often cast aside as inferior replacements to far more efficient and humane voluntary market transactions. Still there is one area that most believe must be run collectively through the state. The realm of law is often the foundation of government, and the...

King on Punishment: A Comment

Legal System

07/30/2014The Journal of Libertarian Studies
One thing I learned from Professor King's paper is that he and I are far less in agreement on punishment theory than I had anticipated.
