Surviving the World

Lesson #2727 - Law

There are sincere problems with originalism. As in, most of the people who argue in favor of it are all too happy to remember that, oh, right, that 3/5th of a person thing was just a little bit of a mistake. So, you know, it's all perfect except for that part. And, you know, other examples like that. Like women not being able to vote. And I can make a comic like this, but it's definitely not an equal balance in how both sides approach it. So the recent sudden debate over Supreme Court nominations are kind of funny in how the Constitution suddenly needs to progress a bit. Funny how that always seems to work.

Anyway, I'm sure those founding fathers really knew exactly how the Constitution should apply for an era of 24-hour television news networks, cellphones, the internet, women voters, black voters, rockets, Supreme Court vacancies several months after election debates started and still nine months before an election would take place, et cetera et cetera et cetera
