The Rights of Families
Regarding this comment:
One of the problems I have with the US constitution is its excessive individualism. There is no place in it for the rights of families.
Yes I would override the individual’s wishes sometimes. But I am not a US citizen, and I am not bound by the US constitution.
I find that a fascinating idea — not one I approve of, necessarily, but interesting nonetheless.
If you would wish to establish such rights, what would they be? And what protections would individuals have against the authority of their families? Protecting the individual against the authority of the system was once a major component of American thought.
