Do You Have A Right To Work?

You might agree with Justice Douglas who in dissent said:

The right to work, I had assumed, was the most precious liberty that man possesses.
This, though, is not the case in the United States where, for example, in California you can't help folks keep pigeons off their roofs with spikes without spending two years learning about pesticides.

A constitution that does not protect the right of consenting humans to employ or perform work for others is no constitution at all. Governments that use their monopoly power to protect one class of people, absent fraud or force, from competition by another class of people has no legitimacy. Its agents, the courts, elected officials and hirelings who enforce such practices are perpetrating crimes against humanity.
