Synopsis

This study examines the irreconcilable demands of American contradicting political mythology and how this dynamic is played out in the arena of constitutional law and the U.S. Supreme Court. The author suggests that conflicting idealism is essential to freedom as it checks powerful political agendas from the right and from the left, and demonstrates that the Supreme Court is uniquely positioned to promote this idealism.
