Thoughts About Delegitimizing the Supreme Court

I published the headline piece for Public Square Magazine today. Be sure to check it out.

I wanted to highlight a few additional things. First off, the American Spectator published an article today doing a much better job than I did at recording the many examples of journalists undermining the institution of the Supreme Court. Certainly worth an added read:

The Media Tears Down the Supreme Court

I also wanted to note just how gutted I’ve been to see the attacks on our major institutions of government. Today was an opportunity to highlight some of this behavior from the left. And I think ultimately the tendency to focus on the self at the exclusion of our institutions is something that started on the left, an argument that Carl Trueman makes especially well in his new book Strange New World.

But recently much of the most troubling acts on this front have come from the right. Whether it was President Donald Trump’s repeated tossing out of democratic norms, the false information regarding the 2020 election (which I cover in my piece), or the rejection of medical authority regarding the COVID-19 pandemic information, this has become an increasing problem, and one that has the potential to seriously undermine our nation if we can’t find a way to step back from the edge.
