Supreme Authority: The Growing Power of the US Supreme Court and Democratic Alternatives


Seems like a good time to resurrect this…

There are alternatives. Supreme Court justices don’t have to be appointed for life. And the highest court in the land doesn’t have to have so much power and authority. Scores of countries — including other “democracies” — have term limits, mandatory retirement ages, etc. Maybe it’s time we have a serious discussion about adding this to what needs amending in the U.S. Constitution.
