This essay tries to understand modern political and legal culture by interpreting the meaning of the right to privacy in relationship with the liberal idea of the neutral State in American constitutional and federal jurisprudence. The authors understand the political consequences of the right to privacy as privatization (as in the free exercise clause and the disestablishment clause) or generalization (as in the equal access clause). They rely on Talcott Parsons’ interpretation of American values to show the importance of individualism and universalism in American culture. The case of homosexual people’s right to marry is analyzed to show how different spheres of society are differently open to individual choice.
