Once the justices depart, as most of them have, from the original understanding of the principles of the Constitution, they lack any guidance other than their own attempts at moral philosophy, a task for which they have not even minimal skills. Yet when it rules in the name of the Constitution, whether it rules truly or not, the court is the most powerful branch of government in domestic policy. The combination of absolute power, disdain for the historic Constitution, and philosophical incompetence is lethal.
Wow, Mr. Bork really lashes out at the Supreme Court for inventing new standards for moral behavior! This is not toning down the rhetoric but ratcheting it up. He makes several good points but I am afraid these points will be lost in the fervor of the impeding spectacle. He has just drawn a line in the sand.
