Hi, I’m Adam Freedman, and this is where I collect my various bits of commentary on politics, law, and the Constitution. This is also where you’ll find news about my books — A Less Perfect Union (June 2015) and The Naked Constitution (October 2012) — both from Broadside Books .
I’m an advocate for constitutional originalism, small government, less regulation, individual liberty, and respect for life. But that’s not to say I don’t have a sense of humor: when the barbarians are at the gate, you’ve got to stop and smell the roses. Oh well, you can find my commentary on Ricochet.com and at City Journal. You can also find me from time to time on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, National Review, Slate, and Newsweek International, among others.
If you’re a glutton for punishment, let me recommend my 2007 book, The Party of the First Part (Holt). It was praised by the late William Safire as “a lighthearted but lucid explanation of legalese.”
