Law exists as a supporting infrastructure of liberty--its job is to protect liberty. Law does not exist for its own sake and cannot exist without liberty. Without the natural state of liberty, laws would be redundant; without the right to choose and act for one's own will, law would simply be a comment on the status quo, a description of what mindless drones are doing, rather than a set of rules to maintain the liberty of all as best as possible.
If there is no liberty to speak, or act as we can, law is not needed and there cant be a law since they couldn't even give an opinion. Law cant be made with no liberty. I believe that because there is liberty, freedom so law exist and therefore liberty is precious than law.
