according to Paul - Mises - Rothbard.
There has never been a free-society in all human history (nor were we ever close to it -- if "we" includes all people).
So -- A good question. Since "society" has always had laws and especially supreme laws can laws conform mans mind toward a free-society or does man seek circumvention around laws which begets more laws?
I'm inclined (at glancing all civilized history) to think the "begeting" principle is true -- men love loopholes to laws.
There has never been a "society" with no laws or where individuals hold the laws over themselves without coercion (self-rule).
Self-Rule = Free-Society
*&^ Constitution --- Constitutional Rationality
