Yeah, that’s called “Democracy”.
Well, just don’t pretend anymore that it is “WE, The People” who establish and ordain the Constitution" when you have a small cabal of Elitist lawyers interpreting what the Constitution means for all us “yokels”.
You have to admit it’s ridiculous either to a small or a great degree that nine Ivy League or University of Chicago educated Justices get the final word over the entire citizenry of a nation.
This is more Benthamism being imposed by the World Brotherhood and Sisterhood of the Judiciary and Attorneys upon what they consider as the mob of humanity
When I read news stories like this, it reminds me of a passage from The Lord of the Rings:
From** The Fellowship of the Ring: The Ring Goes South**
‘I wonder if this is a contrivance of the Enemy,’ said Boromir. "They
say in my land that he can govern the storms in the Mountains of Shadow that stand upon the borders of Mordor. He has strange powers and many allies.’
‘His arm has grown long indeed,’ said Gimli, `if he can draw snow down
from the North to trouble us here three hundred leagues away.’
‘His arm has grown long,’ said Gandalf.
