MLK on law and morality

    Acton Institute: As Ryan Anderson put it in a speech delivered to the Alliance Defending Freedom in 2013, “The upstream/downstream metaphor can be misleading. Culture shapes law, but so too does law shape culture. The law both reflects our values and teaches values—especially to younger generations. The better metaphor, I think, is that of two coasts connected by a tide, that comes in and out, that picks up and drops off on the shorelines. Law and culture reinforce each other, either for or against human dignity and human flourishing.”

Failing to protect freedom is a dereliction of a legislator’s most important duty.”
