Scalia Suggests Activist Judges Led to the Holocaust

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia opened a speech with a reference to the Holocaust, which he said happened to occur in a society that was, at the time, "the most advanced country in the world," the Aspen Times reports.

"One of the many mistakes that Germany made in the 1930s was that judges began to interpret the law in ways that reflected 'the spirit of the age.; When judges accept this sort of moral authority, as Scalia claims they're doing now in the U.S., they get themselves and society into trouble."
