Why are you talking about

Why are you talking about ancient English common law when I am talking about modern American common law? The Common Law is ever changing and evolving. The Romans used to commit infanticide exactly how Rothbard suggested, why not go back that far? Roe v. Wade certainly did.

Furthermore, as a minarchist I believe that legislation can validly speed up the process of common law evolution (for example, Stand Your Ground laws). Rothbard apparently believes in some initial form of this as well, a fixed libertarian legal code and constitution.
