The relativist "mind" in Chicago pukes out his alleged knowledge.
According to 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner in a post published to Slate, U.S. judges should stop studying the Constitution.
“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years,
months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the
Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its
implementation,” Posner argued.
“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the
culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century,” he continued. “Which
means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the
post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.” --quoted at Zippers
The same relativistic logic leads us to declare that there is no particular value in paying attention to a member of the Ruling Class judiciary, Dick. Smoke that, instead of whatever you're using.
Posner confuses Ruling Class Judiciary interpretations of the Constitution with the actual document (as amended.) That's not a defensible error; but we'll give him a cigar for understanding that the 14th Amendment does NOT include "birthright citizenship" for anchor babies born here.
On the other hand, he asserts that the Ruling Class judiciary is given the power to 'define common law.' Wrong. That was defined several thousand years ago. It's called "The Ten Commandments," which summarize natural law. Any popinjay member of the judiciary who rules against that is pissing into the wind which is to say that there is "no particular value" in their dicta.
