Can You Read; Do You Read?

June 10, 2019


Part of my work here at the Institute on the Constitution involves making presentations across the country about matters of law and government and the Constitution. Sometimes, I’ll ask the members of the audience to raise their hand if they have ever read a Supreme Court opinion. Almost never are any hands raised.

Do you find it curious that almost no one reads that which almost everyone considers to be the “law of the land” – which, of course, it isn’t. This may be the quintessential example of the degradation of the formerly vibrant American culture.

There are at least three massive leaps of faith born out of the laziness and the ignorance of our Godless and reckless culture:

First, we falsely accept the notion that the Courts, which are the judicial branch of government, make law, which is the province of the legislative branch;

Secondly, we don’t read what this false oracle writes and therefore don’t even know what the man behind the curtain – the great and wonderful OZ -- has actually said;

Then thirdly, we blindly accept the word of Rachel Maddow or George Stephanopolis of Sean Hannity, as to the meaning of that which we have not even read.

What kind of people would act this way, but a people who are no longer capable of self-government?

The enemies of America know the answer to this question:

What is the difference between a people who can’t read and a man who won’t?

The answer is, of course, “Nothing”
