Season 2 Episode 8 - Bentham on the Declaration of Independence

Lex Rex Institute Podcast by Lex Rex Institute

Episode notes
In this episode, we take you through Jeremy Bentham's reply to the Declaration of Independence. We'll explain why Bentham neither approves of, nor understands, the concept of "rights," why he simultaneously hates kings but thinks you have to do whatever they say, and why his reading comprehension skills are a bit suspect.If you missed it, please check out our last Independence Day episode (episode 11 of season 1) discussing the Declaration:
