Public Choice theory

A central theme of the Public Choice school is that democracy is “inimical to economic liberty” (MacLean, 2017, p. 152).
By using close textual references from Nancy MacLean’s Democracy in Chains, Barbara Fried’s The Progressive Assault on Laissez Faire: Robert Hale and the First Law and Economics Movement (especially chapters 2 and 3), and Eamonn Butler’s Public Choice – A Primer how would you critically engage Public Choice theory’s use of words and expressions like “liberty” and “freedom of property”, respectively? In other words, what would the Critical Legal Studies/Legal Realist response be to the Public Choice school?
