I could not agree more with Balko when he writes:
Stop quoting Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. in defense of your censorious bullshit. In fact, stop quoting Oliver Wendell Holmes for anything. He was a racist, eugenicist,authoritarian asshole. I’ve never understood why progressives have thought so highly of him, back then, or now.
Hear, hear. The most overrated justice in the history of the Supreme Court — and I can’t think of a close second.
