Look to the courts if you want to find the perpetrators

People say cultural change makes for political change, says Hadley Arkes.

According to this argument, we???ve lost in the courts because we have lost in the culture, and so the object is to change the culture.

??But that line of argument misses at once what has been plainly before us:?? the Supreme Court, pronouncing with the authority of law on the things rightful and wrongful, has been the main Engine in the coarsening and corruption of our culture.??

And our friends miss this point because they have never absorbed Aristotle???s understanding, at the very beginning of political philosophy, on the necessary connection between the logic of morals and the logic of law.

Politics matter.
