UpdThe Bill of Rights: Unenumerated Rights, by Jacob G. Hornberger, Future of Freedom, Apr 2005
"A common misconception among the American people is that their rights come from the Constitution. Even lawyers and judges are guilty of believing this, oftentimes suggesting that whether a right exists or not depends on whether it is listed in the Constitution. ... Nothing could be further from the truth. ..."
Kennedy's Libertarian Revolution: Lawrence's reach, by Randy E. Barnett, National Review Online, 10 Jul 2003

"'Liberty' is obviously deeply rooted in our history and traditions. A right to use contraceptives is not. ... Whenever a particular liberty is specified, therefore, it is always subject to the easy rejoinder: 'Just where in the Constitution does it say that?' even though the Ninth Amendment specifies that 'The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.'"
Law as 'Reason' or as 'Violence'?, by Butler Shaffer, 17 Nov 2001
Compares modern "law" to ancient "law merchant" and describes various rationalizations used to justify the violence in the modern system
"Perhaps the best evidence for the incessant restriction of liberties under the Constitution is to be found in the 9th Amendment, a supposed 'catch-all' for all other liberties not enumerated within the Bill of Rights. Only a small handful of cases have ever found such additional 'rights' that were subject to 9th Amendment protections."

UpdWhat Is the Constitution?, by Sheldon Richman, Future of Freedom, Jun 2002
Discusses constitutional interpretation, in particular the ninth and tenth amendments, in light of comments from Antonin Scalia about a national ID card
"... both sides strain to ignore the Ninth Amendment, which says that people have rights in addition to those enumerated in the Constitution. That amendment was adopted to satisfy those who warned that any necessarily finite list of rights is actually dangerous because it will be construed as exhaustive. The Ninth Amendment is virtually missing from constitutional jurisprudence."
