The Natural Law as a Restraint Against Tyranny: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

 

“Some men say the earth is flat. 
Some men say the earth is round. 
But if it is flat, could Parliament make it round? 
And if it round, could the kings command flatten it?” – quote from Sir Thomas More’s treason case under Henry VIII

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano:

“Natural Rights can be summarized in four words: the presumption of liberty. This means we are self-directed. We make our own choices.”

 “I do have something to preserve — my dignity and my right to be left alone, the quintessential American right.”

“The right to defend yourself, the right to keep and bear arms does not protect your right to shoot deer. It protects your right to shoot at the government when it is taken over by tyrants”
