Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty April 06, 2004
Is the U.S. Supreme Court reinterpreting the Constitution in ways that expand state and federal power? Professor Randy Barnett joined us for a discussion of the findings of his new book, Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty, in which he argues that the U.S. Supreme Court has dramatically reinterpreted the Constitution to eliminate essential parts that protect basic rights. As a result, there is no longer a "presumption of liberty" to protect citizens when laws are too restrictive. Barnett discussed what can be done, and showed how incorporating a presumption of liberty into analysis of government action will better protect the rights retained by the people.
