A Pro-Empathy Column - in honor of fairness!

Geoffrey R. Stone pens a column supporting "empathy" and the lefts approach to judging. Not convincing to me! Is it to you?

I found this sentence interesting:

"First, empathy helps judges understand the aspirations of the framers, who were themselves determined to protect the rights of political, religious, racial and other minorities."

So Originalism is the ultimate "EMPATHY". I like it!

And the framers were "determined to protect the rights of....racial" minorities!! Might ask our black brothers about that! Read it all and see which argument is more convincing.s
