Timothy Sandefur’s Conscience of the Constitution Book Discussion, Signing and Q&A May 15, 2014
Timothy Sandefur’s latest book, “Conscience of the Constitution,” is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the most fundamental value animating our Republic. Here’s a hint: it’s not democracy, it’s individual liberty. According to Sandefur, the structures and guarantees of the Constitution can only be fully understood within the context of the principles articulated in the Declaration of Independence—the protection of the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The only thing surprising about this conclusion is the fact that a book had to be written to make the case for it.
