Read Our Fill In The Blank Constitution by Geoffrey R. Stone, Professor of Law at the University of Chicago who argues that we've been misled about the true definition of judicial activism. He claims that all justices are activists, just in different directions. One group wants to expand the rights of the weak and the minority, and one wants to maintain the rights of the powerful and the majority.
