A car is not a tree. Every person is not equal or created thusly. Figurative language is not original. Truth is NOT evident.
Not even “identical” twins are the same. Even Einstein’s view of reality is that no two things can exist at the same time and place and space. Things are not what they appear to be.
Roberts is wrong. Thomas is wrong. The opinion and belief of those who are judges opposed to Affirmative Action are, in fact, absurdly irrational. The question is, Should government do anything to equalize opportunity for those who have been disadvantaged by the actions of the government? Put another way, is there anything government should do to repair (“reparations”) for the harm or its sanctioned abuse in violation of its OWN principles of equality. More specifically, should the government prohibit others who recognize the consequential abuse and violations of “self-evident truths” not take affirmative actions to extend opportunity to those who are and have been disadvantaged?
Originalist would have me believe that it is true, “all men are created equal.” I know that is not so. And, you should, too. Some are gifted unearned advantage. And, obstacles and barriers are place before others before the race in living begins or early in the sprint to adulthood. So, the Originalist would have me believe that NOTHING should be done to address or recognize or attempt to redress matters in a public manner?
