Thus, the ordinance may still be seen by liberals as incoherent, or worse, to invoke an illegitimate conception of non-individuated rights and afford state enforced remedies for illegitimate purposes. This liberal argument may be theoretically tenable, and thus the "bleak" picture I painted may still apply insofar as we favour a liberal legal framework. Furthermore, the powerful liberal arguments conce ...
