“The issue the politicians and bureaucrats would rather avoid is the natural law. The natural law is a term used to refer to human rights that all persons possess by virtue of our humanity. These rights encompass areas of human behavior where individuals are sovereign and thus need no permission from the government before making choices in those areas. (…) Since the freedom of speech, the development of personality, the right to worship or not to worship, the right to use technologically contemporary means for self-defence, the right to be left alone, and the right to own and use property all stem from our humanity, the government simply is without authority to regulate human behavior in these areas, no matter what powers it purports to give to itself and no matter what crises may occur. Among the rights in this category is the freedom of movement, which today is called the right to travel.” – Andrew P. Napolitano, Former US Judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey (1)
