The Source of Laws

Don Boudreaux has a thoughtful post over at Cafe Hayek on where laws should, ideally, originate. There is a lot of debate these days about how the judiciary is "making laws" and overstepping its boundaries - into powers reserved for elected officials (who always, much to my anger, get referred to as "lawmakers"). He makes the point that the most important laws are much more organically developed - a natural product of social evolution, rather than a creation of some politician or judge.

As they say, read the whole thing.
