Most videos from Prager U are terrific. All those I’ve seen run about five minutes — and this one, by Robert P. George, is one of the best I’ve seen yet. Here is the intro to the video:
The federal government has intruded into — and in some cases entirely taken over — more areas of your life than ever before (think health care). What has been the Supreme Court’s role in all of this? Robert George, Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, explains how the expanding power of the federal government corresponds with a more powerful judiciary — so much so that, in his words, most Americans “think of the Supreme Court as the ultimate arbiter of almost every social and political dispute.” Is this a good thing? Is it what the Founders envisioned when they carefully crafted our Constitution? Watch the video here to find out.
