You've got it. This is the bedrock of Hitler's dominion. He first got his legislators to make law, got the highest courts to validate the law, then he could issue orders upholding the law which he wanted made.
An example (that applies here, inescapably): Untermenschen (subhumans) -- fit to be eliminated so as not to taint the Aryan gene pool.
Defined by law, judged by law, and terminated by law.
Philosophically, the Air Force sees Christianity a sublevel that taints pure intellect. Not allowed on base.
Charles Evans Hughes: The law is what we say it is. Same for Roberts. A sellout to power, not purity.
Here we got Ginsburg and Roberts to validate a bill which will lead to some disturbingly similar consequences, once the bureaucracy is gassed up and running.
