Giving Liberty Its Due, But No More: Trans Fats, Liberty, and Public Health

American Journal of Bioethics 10 (3):34-36 (2010)
Resnik’s argument relies upon an undefended and unjustified overvaluation of liberty. First, he overlooks some important arguments in favour of restrictions to liberty, and his consideration of the two he does review is unfair; second his account grossly overestimates the autonomy of our food choices; and lastly his mechanism for balancing liberty against other concerns involves an illicit double counting of the weight of individual liberty.
