Lysander Spooner: No Treason, Part 2

In this episode, Caleb O. Brown reads part two of Lysander Spooner’s No Treason, VI.

In our first number on Lysander Spooner’s No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority, our author systematically rejects the notion that individuals consent to government by paying taxes or voting. There, the case is decidedly abstract and philosophical, but for our second number we turn to the more explicitly legal and constitutional. Spooner begins by demonstrating that the Constitution purports to be a contract between either sovereign individuals or sovereign state governments.

This episode was written by Anthony Comegna, narrated by Caleb Brown, and produced by Mark McDaniel
