This review is from: The Death of Common Sense: How Law is Suffocating America (Paperback)This is a much more concise book than Bovard's "Lost Rights" - and yet makes the point that Bovard fails to: we are lost in a misguided legalism that is not to any person's benefit, except for those bureaucrats whose profession it is navigate the web of laws and regulations we have today in the United States. To find our way again we need to return to simpler a implementation our legal system. Much of our legal system could be boiled down to the Golden Rule. The founding fathers understood this principle when they wrote the U.S. Constitution. The next time you or someone near you says, "There oughta be a law", read or re-read this book. Besides, there probably already are a multitude of laws covering the act you want outlawed - just try to make sense of them.
