Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned, will Americans ever trust the Supreme Court again?
That's as concise and thoughtful an overview as I've read.
First, we amend, revise/adapt our constitution like so many other liberal democracies. Every 25 yrs., we take another look at this poignantly motivating document that embodies so much. Second, nobody gets appointed for life in a liberal democracy!
No. They have eroded all trust in one fell swoop. And are promising to remove even more rights. What next?
Enlarge the court and end the filibuster.
Trust SCOTUS? Yes, my man. Yes!
"What do we do now? If the Supreme Court can take away a right — if they can reinterpret settled case law whenever new membership allows it — how can we ever trust the court again?"
Who is "we?"
We have to make sure appointees are not hostage to a religious belief that clouds their objectivity. Otherwise we are hostage to chaos. This cannot work in a democracy, it makes a mockery of it. JFK knew that.
