The Constitution of the United States is nothing more than a piece of paper home to some clever words. The reason a great nation arose from that parchment has nothing to do with the document and everything to do with its readers. Americans have collectively agreed, by simple convention, to live by the tenets and dictates of our founding principles; we and our ancestors have accepted this social contract based on the notion that we are a nation of laws protected from the tyranny of the majority through the checks and balances of federal power. Faith in our institutions is a critical element to the nation’s survival. Included in that equation is a belief that our highest court is removed, at least to some reasonable degree, from the passions of current politics. We want to believe that a majority of the Justices can overcome their own political views to write opinions in the nation’s long term best interests. In fact, this has historically been the case. Yes, there are some obvious and notable exceptions in which contemporary political views led the court astray (Dred Scott v. Sandford in 1857; Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896; Hamdi v. Rumsfeld in 2004, to name just a few). But those are the exceptions that prove the rule; and over time the Court has often self corrected (Brown v. Board of Education in 1954). At least until the era of Antonin Scalia.
A storm overtakes him http://www.flower-pr.com/2017/12/20/finally-an-answer-to-that-age-old-question-should-you-carve-a/, and he huddles in his pitching boat and weeps. He begs to be spared. He prays. In fact he prays a true prayer for the first time, because for the first time, he sees the world as it is. When he walked on land, that was the land of God he walked upon. He crosses now God’s sea. The sky is God’s, the storm is God’s, and the sunlight he devoutly prays for is God’s as well. Man has awakened. And God, whom Man now sees has never ceased in actively participating in the world, hears his prayer and answers it. The rain ceases, the winds die down, and the choppy seas grow calm. A break in the cloud pours light down to the sea, and the dark waters shimmer and shine around Man’s puny boat around his boat alone. Looking up, he sees blue sky and sun, framed by the remains of the storm. He was nearly drowned, but now he is saved. Another sheet of sunlight stretches across the sky and illuminates one cloud. God has staged this cloud, and this sheet of sunlight, to speak to Man. In the orange glow of a day ending in peace, the Almighty says to Man, “I have heard you, and I carry you in My hand across the hazardous span of the tremendous world. The world is mine, and you are mine as well.”.
