I appreciate professor Barnett's comments on my review of his book, Restoring the Lost Constitution. My analysis of his book, however, remains the same: in the long run, his constitutional system would threaten, rather than advance, liberty. I also reject his idea that one can have a duty to obey the state, and do not share his approval of the imposition of the United States Constitution around the world.
