Antonin Scalia: the Loss of a Friend Emboldens Foes

If you would like a simple read on one significant aspect of Antonin Scalia’s passing, consider this post from a friend of mine.

Antonin Scalia: the Loss of a Friend Emboldens Foes

My friend, who writes under the penname–Basic Guy–has a problem with the trendy academic approach undermining our divine Constitution. Academic drifts are “tossed to and fro.” They argue, in the words of Basic Guy, that “originalists” like Scalia, “are old fashioned and cannot possibly keep up with the times… We live in the day of the information highway and along with advances in science and technology we have far out-distanced the Founding Fathers. We need a constitution for our time that meets modern needs and lives up to the intellect we have achieved over 200 plus years.”

I am not sure how much intellect we have achieved that would surpass the logic and reasoning of our Founding Fathers. Like my friend, I don’t buy the argument.

    I do consider all the ideas you have offered to your post.

    They are really convincing and will definitely
    work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for starters.

    May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
