There are those who want things to go back to normal, but normal is a dishonest reality that holds the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) in a vaunted place that it should have never been. SCOTUS is a group of people that have been chosen to represent the interpretation of the constitution for the good of the people. Jurist like Scalia and Thomas interpreted the constitution as a representation of their own limited views and then call it textualism or originalism, but really it should just be called fundamentalism. This fundamentalism is a human condition that is bankrupt and is used as a cudgel to beat the people into submission. The founders were aware of all these pitfalls and predicted these problems.
