I wonder

I wonder what this professor's statute of limitations is on law... Laws passed a couple of generations ago, say, the Social Security Act, perhaps should be ignored. Or maybe we should discard notions from the 1960's outlawing Jim Crow laws because they, too, are from almost 2 generations ago. Or maybe we should discard Miranda Rights as a relic of a legalistic past and just trust cops to do the reasonable thing.

I'm not sure where he'd draw the line between laws to be ignored and laws to be obeyed. I don't think he's sure. I'll bet he hasn't given it that much thought.

Fortunately, the Founders did.
