Unfit for Democracy

Stephen E. Gottlieb

NYU Press

Contrary to the history, traditions, and science discussed above, the Roberts Court has been undermining democracy, from its consistent preference for business and corporate interests over individuals, consumers, and employees, to its handling of the Bill of Rights, elections, guns, classrooms, and the ways Americans collectively built unity amid diversity over two centuries. Instead the Court has fractured our social capital. In the process, the Court has been making Americans poorer and much less secure.

Keywords:   Bill of Rights, business, classrooms, consumers, elections, employees, guns, Roberts Court, social capital, unity amid diversity
