Democracy vs. the courts (letter)by Murray MitchellNews Weekly
, June 18, 2005
I refer to Bill Muehlenberg's review of Phyllis Schlafly's book, The Supremacists
, which exposes how America's activist judiciary rejects democracy (News Weekly
, May 21, 2005).
I would draw your attention to Alastair Davidson's 1991 book, The Invisible State: the Formation of the Australian State, 1788-1901
, which reveals a similar condition in Australia. (Davidson at the time was in the Sydney University's Department of Government and Public Administration).
The preface states clearly: "The thesis of this book is that in the Australian State established in 1901, the latter proposition [citizen consent] is denied by the courts which successfully assert their right to reject the legislation for illegality."
I would comment that the media have shown this to be the case in several instances.
