Jesse Gordon on Government Reform
A: I’m all for judicial activism. I think that justices should decide issues using their subjective judgement, within their interpretation of the Constitution in their times.
If we extend the “self-restraint” argument to its logical conclusion, we would hardly need a Supreme Court at all -- a computer could apply the Constitution to each case and determine the answer that best fits. Such “objectivity” is never really objective -- it’s equally subjective as my version, but pretends to be objective to hide its bias. Let the justices express their subjective views -- they always have the opportunity to fully explain themselves anyway. “Self-restraint” in the current political environment means the same thing as a conservative interpretation.
