A Celebration of American Law

Tom Bowden

Presented at: IRM 2001

Date: Jul 07, 2001

This is a course in law appreciation. Using real-life illustrations, these lectures examine the many ingenious, interlocking legal mechanisms whose objectivity makes possible the achievements of an advanced civilization––laser beams and Lexus cars, power plants and Broadway plays, fair trials and philosophical conferences. By stressing the virtues of the American legal system rather than its vices, this course offers a refreshing perspective. It provides a respite for the advocates of individual rights, who––battered by a seemingly endless onslaught of non-objective laws––risk losing sight of just how strong a foundation already exists for them to build upon.
