I absolutely loved this quote:
No sketch of Harold Berman can be complete without a reference to an epigram in which he summarized children’s natural grasp of natural law: A child says, ‘It’s my toy.’ That’s property law,” he said. “A child says, ‘You promised me.’ That’s contract law. A child says, ‘He hit me first.’ That’s criminal law. A child says, ‘Daddy said I could.’ That’s constitutional law.”
At some point I will have to post on a kid I had who used the concepts of arguing for gay marriage so that he may talk to his friend that he was not supposed to be talking to. It was brilliant. I told the kid he should go to law school. But I didn’t let him talk to his friend.
