Thread – Why Are the #Dementiacrats Panicking About the Supreme Court?

1. The #Dementiacrats and their media allies have been apoplectic about the Supreme Court selection of @realDonaldTrump, most particularly Kavanaugh and Coney-Barrett.
2. Will we see history repeated in a #Dementiacrat meltdown about Coney-Barrett? Almost certainly, and a very wise man explained the reasons to me and what motivates them. Read on and learn a lot!
3. Just as wars are no longer declared by Congress as the Constitution provides, many major laws have not been voted into law by states or the Congress, but rather are declared by the judiciary.
4. This is the essence of the meaning of an “activist court,” which is NOT what the Founders envisioned. They intended that the legislatures would enact laws because they were “closest to the people” and would therefore reflect what We The People wished to pass into law.
5. Sociology, which was invented by Émile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Karl Marx, is the origin of the problem. Only in the 19th century did the word “society” acquire its current meaning of including all things human.
6. Before that, “society” meant a group sharing a confined purpose. Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals is but one example. Or in business, “société anonyme” (a French term for a public limited company, as defined below):
7. This new definition of society created a new playing field for speculation. Indeed, this abstraction no longer simply includes everything; it also controls everything through “hegemony.”
8. Hegemony is defined as “leadership or dominance, especially by one country or social group over others.”
9. Law had previously been thought to mean what the black letters said. If brought under the ambition of this new abstraction, that “positivistic” concept could not be sustained.
10. The job of courts was no longer to apply words of fixed meanings to the varying facts of cases, but rather to ensure that those laws kept up with the ever evolving and novel needs of “society”.
11. Social reality was the true guide. Law had to change with it. Doing that was the true task of jurisprudence. Cause and effect were reversed.
12. A European school organized by Eugen Ehrlich formalized this theory/process. Roscoe Pound, dean of Harvard Law (1916-36), was an early and enthusiastic convert, as was his protege Louis Brandeis (1856-1941).
13. Pound’s text “Jurisprudence” spread this idea widely. After Brandeis went on the court in 1916, these ideas became orthodoxy. Today, the approach is taken for granted. No one remembers any other way to think.
14. This is exactly what motivated leftist judicial activists like William Brennan and Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, as well as the remaining leftists on today’s Court.
15. Thus, legislative questions have become legal questions. The USSC is now our highest and most powerful legislature and is completely unelected. This has grievously undermined the tripartite balance of power among the three branches of gov’t enshrined in the US Constitution.
16. No reason exists to think that the sociological theory is correct. This is not how we think about, say, the law of gravity. Science is still positivistic, and so are many jurists. But the huge sociological hypothesis still rules law.
17. Even though academic sociology as a single coherent body of evidence and theory is clearly a failure, though born amid high hopes (just like Marxism/Communism/Socialism, for that matter!).
18. This toxic constitutional stream has a source in human speculation. It explains a lot, including why the #Dementiacrats, who are undemocratic fascists at heart, fight so emotionally to retain control of an activist US Supreme Court.
19. May the #Dementiacrats be defeated and the Court returned to the original strict constitutionalist intentions of the Founders! A couple more USSC nominations by President Trump in his second term will work wonders toward that end! ///The end.
