I find this “slippery slope” argument to be bordering on stupidity, even if it was suggested by a supreme court justice. Why would any government in it’s right mind even think of mandating the eating of broccoli, even if, in theory, it could do so? Governments still have a fiduciary duty to govern with prudence, good judgement, and for the welfare of the people. Governments would not do something just because they could. And if there was such a stupid government, there are remedies from recalls to elections. .I note there has not been the fear expressed about activist judges legislating from the Bench. And yet that’s what Republicans are asking these justices to do.
