If you are a Minarchist, Constitutionalist, or just someone who wants to demystify the sacred Constitution that underlies and supposedly provides legitimacy to all violence of “government” then this little book is perfect for you. Mr. Spooner is eloquent and merciless in his dispatching of the myth of Constitutional validity. This book is especially applicable to politicians, law enforcers, and members of the military who have sworn an oath to defend and protect the Constitution. There is no true equality under the law when one small group, the State, arbitrarily fabricate, amend, and are exempt from the laws that apply to the little people. The US Constitution protects the individual rights of the American people in the same way that the Soviet Constitution, Weimar Republic Constitution, and Red Chinese Constitution protected the rights of their respective citizens.
But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.
