"Our radicalism should be expressed in the legislation we fight for, not in attacks on the institutions we need to preserve liberal democracy." Michael Walzer .
A little academic essay, from Michael Walzer
“Judicial review is a necessary feature of constitutional government and of liberal democracy.” This piece by Walzer skates over the fact that judicial review comes in different strengths, & the v strong US form raises serious Qs of democratic legitimacy
It is crucial to maintain judicial independence. But for those engaged in the actual debate around Supreme Court reform, that is a non sequitur.
