24 Mar 2006 Activism v. Originalism
Although this is an editorial, it makes for a snappy faux debate between Justice Ruth “Snoozer” Ginsburg and Chief Justice John “Dapper John” Roberts.
If you read nothing else, read this paragraph:
Ginsburg also offered the best definition of judicial activism we’ve ever heard when she said: “U.S. jurists honor the Framers’ intent ‘to create a more perfect union,’ I believe, if they read the Constitution as belonging to a globalist 21st century, not as fixed forever by 18th century understandings.”
Perhaps the lady was sleeping when they covered the amendment process in her law school.
