We continue our series in the midst of Spooner’s argument that the United States Constitutionâ€"the document so highly regarded, even venerated by the American publicâ€"holds no real legal or moral authority over any living individuals. In the current selection, our author begins by noting that standard contract law and legal processes reject unsigned contracts out of hand as unenforceable, and therefore the Constitution’s supposed authority must rest elsewhere. If not a contract, the Constitution is really a set of guidelines detailing the operating procedures for a criminal gang writ large. As such, interested parties may wonder who could possibly be held morally and legally responsible for the actions of the gang. Are the actual agents of the government responsible (the politicians, the bureaucrats, and all the functionaries at every level), or is it the elusive and secretive “voter†who must be blamed for government’s violations of individual right?...

Spooner was a crotchety old fart...i'd love to have a few beers with him.
