Does Equal Justice Still Exist in Biden’s America?

Source: American Greatness
by Victor Davis Hanson

“What once distinguished the United States from illiberal regimes following the Orwellian mantra ‘some are more equal than others’ was the hallowed American idea of ‘equal justice under the law.’ The phrase is engraved above the entrance to the United States Supreme Court — an ideal that took centuries to achieve. Yet it is an ancient concept: what the Greeks called isonomia that distinguished classical democratic Athens from its anti-democratic rivals. Isonomia later became enshrined as the central criterion of all Western consensual governments. Does it still exist in Joe Biden’s America? In many ways, no — due both to state and private vendettas as well as state efforts to destroy rather than merely defeat political opponents.” (09/19/22)
