I think Larkin's premise is

I think Larkin's premise is that government cannot have rights that people don't have because people cannot give away rights that they themselves do not have. I think the "debate" ended well. I actually think that the lawyer perhaps was given some food for thought by the time it was over. He seemed stumped a few times like he was hearing some concepts for the first time. If you check out the comments on the thread you may get more insight without enduring the "debate." I think the moderator did a little better later in the talk, but he did have a hard time keeping his opinions to himself and just letting the 2 speak. I am glad I watched the whole thing. I found it interesting.
