Is liberty or democracy the primary constitutional value? At a time when Americans are increasingly facing violations of their civil liberties, Cato Institute’s Timothy Sandefur shares his new book, “The Conscience of the Constitution”,and explains “The REALLY, Real, Deal” why the Declaration of Independence, with its doctrines on the primacy of liberty, the natural rights of man, and the limits on legitimate government, should serve as the guidepost for understanding the Constitution. The Conscience of the Constitution: The Declaration of Independence and the Right to Liberty, available now at http://www.amazon.com/The-Conscience-Constitution, argues that modern legal doctrines, which value democracy over liberty, are endangering individual rights and corrupting our civic institutions.
