'Overruled: The Long War for Control of the U.S. Supreme Court' - Event Video

Federalist Society video of the is event, co-sponsored by the Charles Koch Institute and Reason, featuring Damon Root, interviewed by Neomi Rao.
"Damon Root discusses his new book, Overruled: The Long War for Control of the U.S. Supreme Court, in which the Reason senior editor asks the question: can the federal government make you eat your fruits and vegetables?

"Does the Constitution empower the Supreme Court to actively protect individual rights from the whimsy and overreach of lawmakers? The debate over judicial restraint vs. judicial activism is at the heart of Overruled, which makes a bold case for libertarian judicial activism—the notion that the courts should swat away unwarranted and indefensible incursions on our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
