Mark Perry brings us this video of Judge Jim Gray; Judge Gray is an eloquent and passionate opponent of the
‘war on drugs’ war on peaceful people who choose to use intoxicants that the government disapproves of.
After reading George Will’s superb column in yesterday’s Washington Post, I’m more convinced that ever that we should bring back, and ‘Locke’ in, the nondelegation doctrine.
Finally, Henry Manne reminds me of this video – “The Government Can” – from August 2009 by comedian Tim Hawkins. I’m pretty sure that I linked to this video earlier here at the Cafe, but it’s worth re-linking. Not only is it entertaining, but perhaps the single best way to protect our liberties is to reveal politicians to be the buffoonish objects of ridicule that they truly are. In this way, laughter is indeed the best medicine.
