Being Defensive

Once again, I seem to have slipped into humble mode and neglected to plug my latest article. Well, it's still April 12 for another two hours, so the oversight is not entirely beyond rectification.

My article in today's American Spectator traced the origin of the principle of self-defense in law from the Bible through the Talmud and all the way to Maimonides and his prime commentators. I also point out a distinction between Good Samaritan imtervention on behalf of a potential victim and the victim's right to strike back himself.
