Dershowitz is very unusual. He’s actually an ethical leftist...
I have nothing against leftists in general, because those are their positions and in theory they have thought them out and adopted them. We can argue against their points and discuss our different points of view, which is fine.
But the problem with modern US leftism is that reason then drops away and ideology takes over. No discussion is possible, it’s all about power (which is in their hands), and people like Dershowitz end up being footnotes. In fact, when the radical left really takes over after the next election, he’ll probably be dragged out and shot for being not politically correct.
But in the meantime, I’ll pray for him.
Yes, but still a leftist. Like Larry Tribe, he believes the 2nd is clearly an individual right, but would go much further than I in allowing the states (and Feds) to control that individual right. And though Roe is bad law, but there's a limit to what the states may regulate. Which is why Tribe, Alan is way to controversial, isn't on the Court. The nation would be better off with more on the left like this.
