First Principles: The Bill of Rights Is Needed To Curb Taking of Natural Rights

“A people, entering into society, surrender such a part of their natural rights, as shall be necessary for the existence of that society. They are so precious in themselves, that they would never be parted with, did not the preservation of the remainder require it. They are entrusted in the hands of those, who are very willing to receive them, who are naturally fond of exercising of them, and whose passions are always striving to make a bad use of them.” – John DeWitt,  pseudonym used in the authoring of several key Anti-Federalist Papers

A series of the papers written under the pen name John DeWitt may be read here:
