He was right then but wrong today. Since Hamiltons time the Supreme Court has become a cardinal example of Lord Actons famous dictum: Power tends to corrupt- absolute power corrupts absolutely.

It is not a corruption of bribes, or even of bad intentions, but of taking upon itself the right to alter the Constitution whenever past principles offend present preferences of five or more Justices.Corrupted by Power shows how the Constitution is repeatedly changed to mean whatever the Supreme Court wants it to mean.

Precedent is followed only when past decisions support current opinions. Otherwise precedents are overruled, misrepresented or ignored.

Discover what can be done.
