George F. Will: More questions for nominee Elena Kagan

George F. Will writing in The Washington Post: “Some persons argue that our nation has a ‘living’ Constitution; the court has spoken of ‘the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.’ But Justice Antonin Scalia, speaking against ‘changeability’ and stressing ‘the whole antievolutionary purpose of a constitution,’ says ‘its whole purpose is to prevent change — to embed certain rights in such a manner that future generations cannot readily take them away. A society that adopts a bill of rights is skeptical that ‘evolving standards of decency’ always ‘mark progress,’ and that societies always ‘mature,’ as opposed to rot.” Is he wrong?”
