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