Opening Savile's Works at random, Sortes style, I rediscovered a set of aphorisms on what Halifax believes is the much over-used term “Fundamental”, and towards the end of that persuasive chain of reasoning one may find following:
To say a Power is Supream, and not Arbitrary, is not Sense. It is acknowledg’d Supream, and therefore, &c. […]
There is then no other Fundamental, but that every Supream Power must be Arbitrary.
A very ill omen for a “Supreme Court”… and for those living in its power and awaiting its decision.
