  • A Problem With Estoppel

    At first glance the estoppel argument for rights and punishment is compelling however there are a few issues I have with it.

  • Are state taxes illegal?

    The 14th Amendment says: " nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." So a state can't arbitrarily take away a person's property. The 9th amendment says, " The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be...

I'd like to go over this rich kernel of Rand's book Virtue of Selfishness which deals with what rights are, from whence they come, and what they mean. Also quite interesting is her description of how the...

  • What about Arizonas' new law is it legal and is it profiling?

    As we all know Arizona just passed a new law I think it legalizes profiling and could spread to other states in the country. If I run a red light pull me over and give me a ticket don't ask me my nationality.

  • Lack of standing (corpus delecti) in criminal and civil cases

    If the state was established to protect an individual's rights and one is subjugated as a defendant in a case in which the defendant violated nobody's rights, shouldn't a motion to dismiss the case on a lack of standing be successful? Are there any holes in the above proposition? Are there...
