Amy Coney Barrett Seals SCOTUS, the “Tough on Crime” Fallacy
David Gornoski starts the episode by commenting on the news of Amy Coney Barrett sealing the Supreme Court confirmation. Plus, David also comments on what it means to be “tough on crime.” Is defending non-violent offenders from unjust sentences contrary to being “tough on crime?” We know from history, David says, that prohibition gives rise to unsolved property and violent crimes. “The state is a false god and if you sacrifice to the false god it consumes your credibility.” Listen to the full episode for a dismantling of coercive politics and more.
