How You Exercise Your Freedom

The “supreme” court is a bad joke. No human being and no group of five or nine human beings has any right to impose their preferences and beliefs on others. Their claimed authority—like all authority claimed over anyone other than oneself—is entirely fallacious. Their opinions are not special or honorable or binding. They are just opinions enforced through violence, no better than any gang leader’s whim enforced by his henchmen.

That said, on the specific subject of which opinions Brett Kavanaugh might choose to violently impose on others, I tend to agree with Andrew Napolitano’s assessment: “[Thomas] Jefferson once remarked that unless you pick someone’s pocket or break someone’s leg, no one should care how you exercise your freedom or pursue happiness. I wish the president had nominated a person who believes that, as well. But he didn’t.”
