The United States Supreme Court has to some extent federalized areas of tort law by replacing tort law's foundation in care with a concept of careless liberty. The Court has explicitly named self-expression as the intrinsic good. Thus, the unconstrained, self-defining person at the theoretical root of much of the Court's First Amendment jurisprudence will inevitably offend and injure others. Care, not liberty, will always be the intrinsic good.
