  •  Jeezus. Read a book. Start with John Locke and (0+ / 0-)

    then work your way up to the present.   This aspect of the "social contract" has been the subject of a lot of scholarly writing for many years.  That you are unaware of it and/or hate Scalia does not make it bullshit.  

    Tolle lege.

    •  i find it absurd that it would be seriously be (3+ / 0-)

      considered these days. that and the fact that it is and has been an ongoing regular theme of the RW radio "intellectuals", with material supplied by the think tanks. you can hear it on a regular basis - they'll even use it to defend shooting a guy for wearing a hoodie.

      in today's USA, "fat tony" and his gang want to use that excuse, and that is bullshit

            None of your comments appear to have addressed my original point.   If you want to hate Scalia, that's your choice.  I was talking about the constitutional analysis that has to be made when addressing whether or not Section 5 remedies are still warranted in a particular area.  Like I said, read a book.

            •  only reason for this case is to use that argument (0+ / 0-)

              suppress and steal more votes. that's why the case went to them, and scalia is being racist and dihonest.

              can you name any state that might make his argument even relevant today?

              "racial entitlement" might have relevance but not in terms of a state and not in this case- you may be referring to theoretical  learned treatises but he's using it practically.

              it is commonly used in RW media to excuse their racism, push the 'white men are being discriminated against' meme, and attack social and diversity efforts.

              he's piped right into that RW think tank machine.
