Liberty Weekly and the Constitution of No Authority Ep. 28

In the Constitution of No Authority, Lysander Spooner obliterates the idea that the drafters of the Constitution and the people they represented had the authority or ability to bind their posterity to the government they created. In this episode, host Patrick MacFarlane further develops Spooner’s points by dissecting the disconnect between legal arrangements in the private sphere and legal arrangements in the political sphere.
