Texas: Neutering Democracy
I’m sure you’ve heard me natter on many times about balance but this article shows why it is such an important concept, especially in politics. Sure, liberty is important but how free is someone when their right to vote is curtailed? How free are they when their water is being poisoned and they can do nothing about it? How free are they when they cannot enact rules in a university preventing arms from being carried into a classroom?
How free are they when their legislature and courts use ‘liberty’ as an excuse to take actual liberty away?
