Blackstone on Parliamentary Sovereignty

Dominic De Saulles on Law and Litigation

From the Commentaries, Volume 1 pp. 160-162.

Blackstone here sets out his expansive view of the powers of Parliament in disagreement with Locke.

III. We are next to examine the laws and customs relating to parliament, thus united together, and considered as one aggregate body.

The power and jurisdiction of parliament, says Sir Edward Coke, is so transcendent and absolute, that it cannot be confined, either for causes or persons, within any bounds. And of this high court, he adds, it may be truly said, “si antiquitatem spectes, est vetustissima; si dignitatem, est honoratissima; si jurisdictionem, est capacissima.”

It hath sovereign and uncontrollable authority in the making, confirming, enlarging, restraining, abrogating, repealing, reviving, and expounding of laws, concerning matters of all possible denominations, ecclesiastical or temporal, civil, military, maritime, or criminal: this being the place where that absolute despotic power, which must in all governments reside somewhere, is intrusted by…

Leaked Report Points To Wind Farm Failure Causing UK Blackout

Iowa Climate Science Education

National Grid’s preliminary investigation into the blackout that caused widespread disruption in England and Wales last week has raised the possibility that it was caused by the world’s largest offshore wind farm accidentally going offline.

The provisional report, which was submitted to regulators on Friday, suggests for the first time that the Hornsea offshore wind farm, which is owned and run by Denmark’s Orsted, may have tripped offline seconds before an outage at a smaller, gas-fired station.

The findings, which were relayed to the Financial Times by people briefed on the report, suggest the blackout may have been avoided if not for an error at the wind farm.

Is Capitalism Humane?: A Lecture from Milton Friedman

Right From Yaad

Basic Economics, Liberty Pen and the Free to Choose Network have all been prolific in posting taped lectures by Milton Friedman onto YouTube.

Here in this lecture entitled: “Is Capitalism Humane?” Friedman concludes that systems in and of themselves have no values. Capitalism is neither humane nor inhumane, but rather the results of the systems used are the way we should evaluate what’s best for the common man. Capitalism has been for the greater benefit of all.

The Party Boys – Gloria

Federalism Isn’t Unfair

PILEUS

My latest for Learn Liberty looks at proposals for starting an equalization program to redistribute from rich to poor states in the U.S. and finds them wanting. Due to the audience for that blog, I kept that post nontechnical and brief. I’ll reproduce part of it here and then elaborate on some of the complexities and possible counterarguments.

[C]ritics of federalism point to one big disadvantage: federalism, they say, is unfair.

This criticism particularly applies to the fiscal aspect of federalism — that is, the ability of states to choose their own tax burdens and spending levels. The argument runs like this: states have different tax bases per citizen (some are richer than others), so richer states can tax their citizens at lower rates than poorer states, offer…

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism.

We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
