Stephen Smith’s Lectures on Political Philosophy

Aug 19

As part of Yale’s Open Courses, you can listen to Stephen Smith’s “Introduction to Political Philosophy” lectures.  After listening to the first lecture, where he makes the point that because political philosophers’ loyalties are to the best regime, and the best regime never exists, political philosophers can never be perfectly loyal citizens, I’ve decided that I want to promote passage of a law criminalizing the practice of political philosophy on the grounds that it constitutes sedition, just like the shari’a.  As a loyal American, what else can I do in the face of a such an open challenge to the legitimacy of the US constitution?
