“Good versus evil is one of the most enduring themes in the movies. Even small children understand and enjoy a story in which after overcoming many obstacles, the underdog good guys ultimately triumph over the bad guys. The Institute for Justice takes this theme and transforms it into real life, representing poor and defenseless citizens who are simply trying to live their lives freely and peacefully but are nonetheless abused by officious and obnoxious government bureaucrats, with unlimited budgets and laws on their side. Of course, just like in the movies, most normal people root for the underdog, but it’s only in the movies that the underdog usually wins, right?

“Wrong. Miraculously, with the help of IJ and their tireless team of litigating freedom fighters, I enjoy ‘watching a movie’ that almost always has a happy ending. One of their cases really is a movie (Little Pink House), but you could really make a movie out of any of IJ’s cases. Thank you IJ for fighting so hard for freedom and making such wonderful ‘movies’ that are helping to change the world for the better.”
