Bill of Rights Day: A Reminder

Tim Lynch at the Cato Institute brightened my day by sending along a piece he wrote commemorating Bill of Rights day. I needed a pick-me-up, as I am still licking my wounds after a defeat in a criminal case today.

I pass the link along. Read through it, and be sure to click on the links embedded within his piece. We've come along way in the past 225 years. I am not sure the road we have travelled has made us any freer. Indeed, I suspect the contrary is true. Lynch's piece reminds that the Constitution is still worth fighting over, even if its meaning and import has been transformed beyond recognition during our lifetime.

I believe that the state is a necessary fiction and that failing to combat it is the first step toward tyranny.
