Judges make lousy social scientist

Posted on April 30, 2017 at 3:45 PM

Social sciences include history, sociology, economics and philosophy and some of the earliest historical giants in these fields had their training in history, religion and philosophy, Adams, Marx, and Weber. 

Modern pundits from these fields examine human behavior by developing some measureable characteristics and attempt to quantify these characteristics into some predictive modality. Although they will not admit it the opinions of these scholars and their studies have little predictive value and worse have no value to judges.  After all humans are too unpredictable and most social scientists fail to remember “we cannot quantify mystery”.

Judges don’t usually read nor care about these studies.  They find them of little help to their sense of jurisprudence.  For example, in a 2005 National Review article, Liberals ‘N’ Lawsuits, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote, that “constitutional litigation” to achieve social change such as gay marriage, assisted suicide and vouchers for private school education is wrong. It only causes “politicization of the judiciary and “political atrophy”. 

Jurisprudence is the philosophical application of community rules to situations of current conflict and is a philosophical process that develops rules of behavior to avoid future conflict.  In other words the community will develop norms of behavior and then rules of behavior which stem from its “need for order”.

The science of law is defining an important community issue, identifying salient facts, and finally applying a rule in some contorted analysis to reach a conclusion. Law students know this as the Socratic case study of law methodology.

The science of law is really a formal process of critical thinking surrounded by community values and mores.  The process is an attempt to resolve conflicts, which arise among incompatible members of the community. This process develops rules of behavior. These rules of behavior “the law” are formal expressions of the values of a dominate group in a community. This is the “Natural Law”.

Development of “Positive law” occurs after a community establishes political bodies, legal institutions, and law enforcement agencies. All in some social, economic, philosophical and historical framework. Judges, as members of the community are the Solomon’s of justice, legal decision makers, and the administrators of justice. And although they should be from the community, often they are not. They now have little experience with the community.  All too often they are not chosen by the community-election but rather picked by a governor who appoints them from a select field chosen by a small legal elite group who are also devoid of any communal values.  This group conducts its selection in a secretive star chamber.

The selection of judges, their total disconnect from the community, combined with their lack of education in the social sciences explains why judges are “lousy social scientists” and their decisions reflect it.

I and my friends have been going through the good guides found on your web page and then all of a sudden I had a terrible feeling I had not thanked the web blog owner for those tips. All of the boys happened to be happy to study all of them and have now sincerely been making the most of these things. Many thanks for actually being indeed kind and for opting for such quality themes most people are really wanting to be aware of. My honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.

I must express some appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this particular matter. Just after checking throughout the world wide web and seeing suggestions which were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you have fixed all through your article is a serious case, as well as ones which may have negatively affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your good knowledge and kindness in maneuvering all the things was precious. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a subject like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and effective help. I will not be reluctant to suggest the blog to any person who requires tips about this problem.

Needed to compose you that tiny observation to be able to say thanks the moment again for those striking concepts you've provided on this site. It has been seriously open-handed of you to present unreservedly all that most of us might have offered for sale for an e-book in making some money for themselves, chiefly considering the fact that you might have done it if you considered necessary. These good tips as well worked to become a easy way to recognize that other people have the same zeal just as my personal own to know a great deal more regarding this issue. Certainly there are millions of more fun occasions up front for individuals who looked at your blog post.

My spouse and i felt really delighted that Edward could complete his investigations from the precious recommendations he had through the site. It's not at all simplistic to simply continually be offering tricks that a number of people may have been selling. We take into account we have you to thank because of that. Most of the illustrations you've made, the simple web site navigation, the relationships you will make it easier to instill - it's got everything wonderful, and it is letting our son in addition to our family believe that the theme is interesting, and that's truly pressing. Thank you for everything!
