  • Gay Marriage without the State

    My observation of the illegality of gay marriage in many states in America reminds me of the slave codes in the south that kept slavery from dropping out of existence. In the absence of the state issuing arbitrary laws about the voluntary relationships between human beings, I think private law would...
