The Great Charter, June, 1215

Daniel Hannan, a British member of the European Parliament and one of the most astute commentators on historical aspects of the global political scene, has written “Eight Centuries of Liberty” in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal:

He refers of course to the Magna Carta and quotes today’s leading British jurist in referring to it as “the greatest constitutional document of all time, the foundation of the freedom of the individual against the arbitrary authority of the despot.”
It of course was the inspiration for this blog as I try to show that family court is one of the leading threats to freedom and probably the most obvious example of despotic arbitrary power in the United States today.
Mr. Hannan very eloquently shows that not only did this document from June, 1215 lay the basis for liberty it also did so for prosperity in that it protected property rights for the first time in history.
Family Court, on the other hand, has not only been a great force against a child’s liberty, it has been the modern era’s greatest cause of poverty. More about that issue later in one of our June, 2015 blog entries.
