And we have a mechanism for correcting non-correspondence of the constitution with natural law: the Amendment process—which won’t work in our current demographic situation.
Do you know many judges you’d trust to implement Natural Law over the plain text of the document?
When I hear a “constitutionalist” go on about Natural Law, it’s 99.9% ignorant blather. Curt is the first guy in years to use the term Natural Law in a way that doesn’t make me want to punch someone.
I suspect Curt provides for decidability whereas others use Natural Law to stand in for “whatever I think is good right now.”
Curt has done great things for the Common Law that many constitutionalists would throw out with the bathwater if judicial abuse of discretion.
