1. As noted, the Constitution does not expressly authorize judicial review. Should we, therefore, assume that the framers of the Constitution did not intend to afford that power to the courts?
2. In your view, do the courts have too much power in our lives? Explain.
Among other goals, the Constitution was designed to protect the citizenry from the government. The Constitution does not protect citizens from purely private concentrations of power, such as large corporations. In fact, corporations themselves are often entitled to the protections of the Constitution. (Remember the Citizens United discussion in Chapter 3.)
