Abstract

Discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin, etc., is often morally wrong. But should such behavior be proscribed by legislation, and penalized by fines or jail sentences? This paper argues that such enactments are incompatible with the law of free association, and with the concept of economic liberty and civil rights.
