I was very pleased to read the latest Supreme Court decisions, ruling that President Biden's administration does not have the right in law to arbitrarily override the obligation of student loan recipients to repay their loans, and that First Amendment rights override any attempt to force individuals to endorse or echo speech with which they have a disagreement in conscience.
I hasten to add, I'm not pleased because those decisions happen to coincide with my own views. Rather, I'm pleased because they stand firmly in the line of previous jurisprudence, and uphold Constitutional norms that have long been recognized in this country. "Woke" state and national government policies had sought to modify and/or override them, or get around them by claiming spurious and exigent circumstances that demand immediate action. SCOTUS has consistently (and, this week, yet again) ruled that the Constitution is the bedrock of our laws, and cannot be ignored or overridden.
It's going to take ceaseless vigilance to guard against such attempts. They've been common throughout the history of this country (remember President Lincoln's efforts to ignore and/or override habeas corpus during the Civil War?), and they'll doubtless be at least as common, if not more so, in the future. If we are to be a nation of laws, we need to defend that heritage - even if we disagree with some of the court decisions thus produced. It's not about what we want. It's about upholding the law - and ensuring that the law(s) uphold and defend the Constitution.
