10/08/20112 Comments

What is "the rule of law"? On what basis do we institute laws and why should we obey them? Are laws for the protection of unalienable rights, and if so, how do we derive our knowledge of those rights? Are governments necessary for the enforcement of the laws? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we go in search of natural law.

Re: Arnie Gundersen. Thank you to all those who contacted Fairewinds. I am now in the process of setting up an interview with Arnie so there is no need to contact them at this point.

  1. James, I don’t know if you try and keep up with dead-links on these older episodes or not. If you do, the Lew Rockwell, Murray N. Rothbard, Introduction to Natural law link is now here….

      Thanks for the tip. As you can imagine there’s no way I can possibly keep these links updated by myself so if you do ever see anything like that just let me know the replacement link and I’ll fix it (as I just did here).
