No Country For Old Conservative White Men

 Every sane person's reaction to the news that there was no autopsy for Justice Scalia. De mortuis nil nisi bonum.

Political assassinations are rare, yet they still are a normal part of politics in every polity, and in every age. In basket case countries, like North Korea for example, a top general is killed every other week because he wore the wrong uniform that day.

But, in more advanced countries like the U.S., the assassinations of top officials is only done in extreme circumstances and to advance a specific political agenda, sometimes good and sometimes bad, depending on your point of view.

Justice Scalia made enemies of the most powerful individuals in the world. They believe he was stubborn and stood in the way of change. From the viewpoint of the revolutionary U.S. ruling class his death was necessary and has even been celebrated in some quarters.

Will another Supreme Court Justice be killed in the future if he/she doesn't get along with the man/woman/alien in the White House? Who knows. But the precedent has been set. If there were term limits for Supreme Court Justices, Justice Scalia would have probably lived to a 100 years old.
