The Roots of Natural Law

I'm now reading Hayek's "The Fatal Conceit" (you can too, for free).   Ran across this and thought I should bookmark it for myself and others.
[David] "Hume noticed clearly the connection of these doctrines to freedom, and how the maximum freedom of all requires equal restraints on the freedom of each through what he called the three 'fundamental laws of nature':  the stability of posession, of it's transference by consent, and of the performance of promises."

Personal Property, Free Trade, and the binding nature of Contracts.

These are the things that Libertarians and Social Conservatives can rally around.  This is why there's  a Tea Party.
