Federalism and Property Rights

Testimony before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee

on the Constitution, Federalism and Property Rights

prepared by Richard A. Epstein



on behalf of the Americans for Computer Privacy



\"We live in a world with great potential; but it is also a world of great risks. We must do the best that we can to minimize the risks. But that requires us to consider the scenarios in which government regulation does harm as well as those in which it does good, and to make the best and most responsible decision that we can on the strength of all available information. On matters such as these it is difficult to separate the constitutional from the practical considerations, and at this stage in the inquiry, it is far from clear that we should make that separation at all. The various proposals before this Committee on mandatory key access pose far more risks than they eliminate. The proposal should therefore be rejected both for the risks that it creates for private transmissions of electronic information, and for the dangers that it poses to the constitutional protections for individual liberty that have long helped to keep this nation both free and strong. \"
