Thomas Fleming, Anti-Statist

The New Beginning posts some noteworthy excerpts — Dr. Fleming on the Limits of the State.

"I do not think Natural Law requires a state to protect the unborn," he says. "I don't think under the Natural Law that a political authority is bound to protect born children who are the family's and not the government's responsibility," he later continues. Read his arguments.

"I'd give up the word state, with all its historical and ideological baggage," he proposes. "Was the Athenian polis a state?" the classicist asks. "I don't think so," he answers, "at least not in the sense that the UK or the USA today are states." Tolle, lege.
