As always, I highly respect Dr. Sowell's words and thoughts. And, for what my wennie opinion is worth, I agree that Roberts' HC ruling was a betrayal of his oath, when the decision is seen in its narrow view. However, and with all due respect to Dr. Sowell, today's political schemes are all over the judiciary; liberalism has inculcated every nook and cranny with every perversion they can dream up- such as the Incorporation Doctrine relative to the 14th Amendment. "Freedom of Contract" is another.
I believe this decision by Roberts is a well-laid plan to use a long-term perversity, and this time it is the strategy of the Right- fighting fire with fire! We will see this strategy begin to play out in the courts beginning in 2014.
