a nice bunch of quotes about the man made institution we call the law. The only one I take issue with is Fenimore Cooper, one of the heroes of the American Libertarian movement. They place an almost relgious faith in “Constitutions” but refuse to deal with the ethical basis for adopting a constitution as the platform for law. If it isn’t based on the informed consent of the people (ie. Democratic) then, by definition it must be based on a small subset of the population who have set themselves up as the arbiters of right and wrong on “our” behalf. That is just as dictatorial as what they believe they’re objecting to.
