Weakening the Bill of Rights: A Victory for Terrorism

Review by Stephen Reinhardt, 106 Mich. L. Rev. 963, of Not a Suicide Pact: The Constitution in a Time of National Emergency by Richard A. Posner
I feel more confident in judges than in elected officials safeguarding our constitutional liberties. But I would feel even better were there some Warrens, Brennans, Marshalls, Douglases, Blackmuns, or even more Stevenses currently making the decisions that will determine the nature of our rights and freedoms—and indeed the nature of our society—for years to come.
