Modern progressives assume moral and intellectual authority.
Consequently, their supposedly superior ends naturally justify almost any means necessary to achieve them.
Among the elite, the Democrats’ “blue-wall” states were once considered a testament to the wisdom of the Electoral College. When that wall crumbled in 2016 to Donald Trump, the Electoral College suddenly was blasted as a relic of our anti-democratic founders.
The nine-person Supreme Court was once beloved. On issues like abortion, school prayer, same-sex marriage, pornography and Miranda rights, the Left cheered the Court as it made the law and ignored legislatures and presidents.
