Why would a Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court warn his fellow citizens about taking democracy for granted?
Could it be about Donald J. Trump?
Could it be about lecturing other judges about politics?
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts warned that Americans may “take democracy for granted” in his annual year-end message published Tuesday.
“[W]e have come to take democracy for granted, and civic education has fallen by the wayside. In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public’s need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital.”
