America is exceptional among all “democracies” because the Constitution is framed in terms of negative liberties.
I recall Cass Sunstein, Samantha Power’s husband, seeking to alter the Constitution in terms of making it positive rather than negative, and nobody knew what he was talking about.
What he was talking about was the nature of American freedom in the constitution wherein you are free because the government is prohibited from entering the private sphere including the publishing sphere and the religious sphere.
Just look at Europe where the government has a right to enter everything and it is only by their good graces that they do not run totalitarian dictatorship under the guise of protecting the people and doing what is best for all.
Sounds like the “New Deal” and now, “Obamanomics,” doesn’t it?
And so, you have hate speech laws and you go to jail for violating them when the state decides the boundaries of freedom.
And, that is what liberal judges on the Supreme Court mean when they hold that attention must be given to the jurisprudence of other countries.
Of course, that’s the curriculum of today’s liberal Democrat socialist law schools where Obama and the leaders of the Democrat Party were educated.
That explains the contempt that the Democrat Party has to freedom, constitution, American exceptionalism – everything that in the old days when I went to school was taken for granted.
A time before America’s religion became atheism (if not Islam) and the Trinity became atheism, communism and abortion.
