About this Episode

Reading the Left from a conservative perspective series

Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains. That's how Rousseau begins his famous treatise on government. When the people take charge, the general will is always rightful and the decisions will always be good. Rousseau calls for enforcing equality and establishing a censorship tribunal.
