The Death Penalty and Liberty

posted by Jack Kerwick

Connecticut just became the 17th state in the union to outlaw capital punishment.  It now joins the company of such illustrious former colonies as my own home state,New Jersey. This is a tragic turn of affairs. Call me quaint, but […]

“Gay Marriage,” Marriage, and Individualism

posted by Jack Kerwick

One can only hope that all of this talk over the controversial issue of “the liberty” of homosexuals to “marry” will get us to thinking a little harder about marriage and liberty. Marriage is a more vulnerable institution today than […]
