The only thing that will save SCOTUS and will be very good for the country is a bunch of strict originalists* on the bench. They should refuse to legislate, should stop looking for penumbras of something utterly unintended in the Constitution, and force the legislature to legislate.
The reason why there are fewer originalists than there should be is that this is an approach that makes the courts less important and less powerful. And who wants to have less power?
All I want to know about Barrett is how much of an originalist she is. Everything else is fluff and distraction.
Originalists are hounded and vilified for pretend infractions because their real, unmentioned sin is that they refuse to make themselves useful to those who want a shortcut that makes democracy unnecessary.
* For non-US readers, an originalist is a jurist who interprets the Constitution as it was originally written and intended.
