When the typical person thinks about the law, he thinks about it as a list of behaviors that are prohibited. You cannot fish during certain months, for example. You are not allowed to drive over a certain velocity. The law is a list of limitations on what you can do as well as a list of things others cannot do to you. This is largely true as a practical matter, but the law is more than a list of prohibitions. It is a moral system that turns those limitations into a habit of mind for the citizenry.

Although the law often looks chaotic and self-contradictory, it is a system made of properties and methods. The properties are things like constitutional rights, precedents, and legislation. These are statements that are treated as facts. Your First Amendment right to assembly is assumed to be a fact of nature. The Court’s decision that the First Amendment does not permit you to yell fire in a crowded theater when there is no fire is now assumed to be a truth in the Constitution.

The methods are the rules that govern how the people inside the law interact with those properties as well as the other people inside the legal system. The courts have processes for adjudicating disputes between citizens, for example. The government has to meet certain conditions when they infringe on the rights of a citizen. All of us exist inside the legal framework, as it is the implementation of the moral framework of our society and the framework determines how we interact with one another.

This is the starting place for reading this new booklet titled How We Got Our Antiracist Constitution: Canonizing Brown v. Board of Education in Courts and Minds, which is part of the Claremont Provocations Monograph Series. The author is Jesse Merriam, who teaches government at Patrick Henry University. His focus is on the history of the famous Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which has transformed not just the law by the Constitution itself.

The author starts with a short history of the famous case. This is one of those things that will be a revelation for most readers. Even though the case was decided in 1954, the process started a generation earlier when a young communist radical received a million-dollar inheritance from his father. He was going to reject it, but the founder of the ACLU convinced him to use the money to fund left-wing causes. This was in 1922, long before normal Americans thought about civil rights.

This money was used to start the Garland Fund, which gave the NAACP $100,000 to begin the litigation that eventually led to the Brown decision. The author does not spend a lot of time on it, but the point is clear. The civil rights movement was not something organic and spontaneous. It was a long-term project organized and financed by wealthy and important individuals. They set out to change the moral framework of the country and committed their lives to the cause.

That brings us to the heart of the topic. The author walks the reader through the process by which a legal decision becomes canonical and then how that status in the law warps everything that comes after it. In the law, “canonization” is “the process by which a single Supreme Court decision comes to control constitutional theory, debate, and interpretation.” A case can become so important that it changes the methods by which the Court views the Constitution itself.

This is a three-step process that starts with the construction phase. This is when the new moral principles are introduced to the moral framework or old moral principles are challenged as antithetical to the core principles. Brown was the end point of the construction phase where two new principles were added. One is that diversity is a constitutional good. This is why diversity is a strength. The other new principle was that discrimination, private or public, is always unconstitutional.

The next phase is what the author calls submission, which is the process “whereby critics of the initial decision capitulate to the new paradigm.” The author provides data on how conservatives changed over this phase. He counted negative stories in National Review before and after Rehnquist was nominated to the Court. He also looks at opinions on Brown during this period and notes that they went from uniformly hostile to neutral and then accepting.

The submission phase with regards to Brown is a great primer on what lies behind the internet meme “the conservative case for…” These new moral claims are first embraced by the people with control of the institutions. That power is then used to select against critics, which has the desired effect of selecting for those willing to bend their knee to the new moral paradigm. What has shaped conservatism over the last several generations is this process of submission to the Left.

The final phase of canonization is weaponization. This begins “when the former critics marshal the decision and its values for their own legal and political agenda.” As the former critics incorporate the moral principles in their own arguments, the case then becomes a controlling moral authority. Those former critics of the new morality transform themselves into its champions, often trying to stake out positions that are more extreme than those of the original advocates.

Again, the author dives into the writings of conservatism to provide examples of how they now embrace the moral claims of Brown. This is the origin of another well-worn internet meme, “democrats are the real racists.” For a generation after Brown, opposition to this decision was central to conservative arguments. Over the last thirty years Brown has taken center stage in conservative arguments in favor of diversity and opposition to discrimination.

The final result of this process is that the original Constitution has been hollowed out and in place of the rights-based moral order we now have the twin moral demands that have come from the logic of the Brown decision. Not only are your enumerated rights subject to the “Brown test”, but the federal system established by the Constitution has collapsed in order to comply with the new moral paradigm, leaving us with what the author calls the antiracist Constitution.

The author does not get into this, as it falls outside the scope of the essay, but the new legal framework created by Brown reflects the new moral framework that has come to dominate the thinking of the ruling elite. Diversity as the primary good and discrimination as the primary bad haunt every aspect of modern life. Not only must you avoid discriminating against members in the league of the oppressed, but you must also swear allegiance to diversity.

This is fundamental to the new religion which imagines the end point of social progress as the open society. If all people are inherently equal, then the differences we see must be due to social structures, which means that people are infinitely malleable. This is the universal truth of mankind. Thus, we have the holy trinity of the new religion, equality, the blank slate, and universalism. The logic of Brown reflects this spiritual sensibility as well as the ultimate goal of the open society.

This is a topic of critical importance for dissidents, so this booklet on the Brown decision and its canonization in the law is an important entry point. As the author notes, the road forward is not in fighting the tentacles that have grown out of Brown, but to understand how we got to this point. In order to remove the tentacles of Brown v. Board of Education from the neck of society, the moral claims that lie behind the decision must be understood and then defeated.

The reaction of other Europeans to what is happening in France will be very interesting. Whites are the only group on the planet who like to pride themselves on having an out group preference. If this race war was happening in a non white part of the planet, not only would the response be harsher, people in the neighboring countries would be reevaluating their policies to avoid the same happening in their country.

It will be interesting. Normally I would expect a division between big city and safe, affluent suburban left and the rest of the country. That may be what happens here.

However, the race war (that only one side is fighting) has enriched the suburbs as well as the cities. The suburbs in America were largely unaffected by the vibrant mourning for St Floyd.

I have no hope for the city residents but I am curious if vibrancy visiting them will move the suburbs to the right. Already suburban mayors are urging crackdowns

I mentioned this a while back, but I have a book called American Constitutional Development by Carl Brent Swisher. The original volume was published in 1943 and the one I have was published in the early 50’s to include cases through Truman’s presidency — right on the cusp of Brown v. Board. Plessy v. Ferguson is mentioned once, in a footnote on page 1047, as the book gets around to discussing ‘Rights of Minorities’ during the Truman administration. In other words, even at that late date the case hadn’t taken on its mythical status as the root of all evil… Read more »

But there was a time that mimicry as you call it allowed some semblance of order.

Don’t discount the possibility of a catastrophic black swan event. We are overdue for a civilization-killing strength solar storm (search “Carrington event”). Worse. there’s a very good chance the magnetic poles will complete their flip within the next 10-20 years. Meaning more EMP storm, with volcanoes and tsunamis. When either one of those happens, make sure you have a year’s food laid in, lots of camping gear and some warm clothes. You’re gonna need ’em.

I’m a whole lot less offended by Brown v. Board than the cases that followed it. Yes, the whole argument citing sociological studies with black and white dolls was ridiculous. But it seems to me that the 14th Amendment rather clearly prohibits government from creating separate policies based solely on race. It’s one thing to say that the government shall not enact race-based policies, and quite another to say that the government can force people to integrate, as it did on Swann v.

Present-day Japan, which is still approximately what America left there after WWII—an odd partial imitation of the America of *that time*, living out a strange version of America’s lost future—has evaded the wrath of current_America by being tiny and inoffensive.

The generation of Americans taking leadership now are psychotically offended by Japan, especially by its reputation for resisting current_America, so it’s being re-conquered.

It’s akin to the cognitive dissonance that committed communists experienced under Stalinism. Why hadn’t the workers’ paradise arrived as promised? It couldn’t be that the tenets of socialism as espoused by Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Comrade Stain were flawed. No, the reason Soviet communism had not achieved perfection was due to various anti-revolutionary elements — wreckers, fascists, Trotskyites, kulaks, and so on. Once all of the enemies of the revolution were eliminated, then true socialism would be possible.

Knowing nothing of Council of Trent and the Summa Theologica, I presume you point this antidote only to the White West. It would be base (low) to accuse such a fine mind of universalism.

That said, I saw that the Greek Orthodox don’t include Revelations in their Bible.

The Roman West does; this provided the Dispensationalist gate to be thrown open.

Thus, in the east, war communism was waged, open subjugation.
In the west, infiltration and subversion, cultural razzia, raiding bases.

Would this antidote include any defenses against foreign conquest?

When I took constitutional law in college, this was the first case that we studied. One important aspect of Brown is that it was the first big case in which social science informed the decision. There was a study that showed that little black girls found white baby dolls more attractive than black baby dolls. This was interpreted as showing that racist society was making little black girls hate their race. Leaving the crisis of replicability in social sciences aside, even if the result is true, there may be other explanations that don’t involve whites being evil. For example, just… Read more »

One should not read Brown without also reading the works of Carleton Putnam, such as his book, Race and Reason, and his letter to Science magazine (13-December-1963). He demolishes the “factual” basis of the Brown decision and exposes the perfidy and lying of Franz Boas. The most amazing thing is that Science magazine back then would actually publish a dissenting view point such as his.

Here’s another approach. Ask the Leftist if there is any limit he would place on diversity. If a little diversity is good, isn’t more diversity better, and maximal diversity the best of all? How many whites would exist in maximally diverse society? Given that diverse effectively means non-white (another brutalization of language by the Left), their ideal society is one in which there are no whites. Sound bloody genocidal to me.

Yes. This is a great point c matt. It effectively states that more diverse perspectives make us more innovative.
