Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson and Alienable Rights

Where does she stand on the foundational principal of the Declaration of Independence?

Tue Apr 12, 2022  Terence P. Jeffrey

In a written response she presented to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson put herself at odds with a 2,000-year-old understanding of the nature of the law and the foundation of human rights.

A half-century before Christ was born, the Roman senator Cicero plainly explained the foundation of a just law.

"There is a true law, a right reason, conformable to nature, universal, unchangeable, eternal, whose commandments urge us to duty, and whose prohibitions restrain us from evil," he said.

"It is not one thing at Rome and another at Athens; one thing today and another tomorrow; but in all times and nations this universal law must for ever reign, eternal and imperishable," he said.

"It is the sovereign master and emperor of all beings," said this great Roman statesman. "God himself is its author, its promulgator, its enforcer. He who obeys it not, flies from himself, and does violence to the very nature of man."

Almost 1,900 years later, Thomas Jefferson, the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, sent a letter to Henry Lee, citing Cicero as one of the inspirations for that document.

No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
