Overview

Since at least 1971, when he published a seminal article on constitutional interpretation in the Indiana Law Journal, Robert Bork has been the legal and moral conscience of America, reminding us of our founding principles and their cultural foundation. The scourge of liberal ideologues both before and after Ronald Reagan nominated him for the Supreme Court in 1987, Bork has for fifty years unwaveringly exposed—and explained—the hypocrisy and dereliction of duty endemic among our nation’s elites, the politicization and adversary activism of our courts, and the consequent degradation of American society.

Now, for the first time, Judge Bork has gathered together his most important and prophetic writings in A Time to Speak, including a foreword and commentary by the author. The volume includes more than sixty vintage Bork contributions on topics ranging from President Nixon to St. Thomas More, from abortion to antitrust policy, and from civil liberties to natural law. It also includes several of his judicial opinions and transcribed oral arguments. A Time to Speak is an indispensable book for all who have harkened to the truths spoken so forthrightly, in season and out, by this great American original.

    Proof that the Constitution does not Need to be "Living" to be Alive

    Judge Bork's arguments are difficult to dismiss. For those espousing the so called "living Constitution" this book is a nightmare. After all, not one of them can refute Bork's framework. Nor can one of them come up with a single cohesive, convincing explanation as to how leaving raw policy-making up to unelected, unaccountable judges is not unadulterated tyranny.
    This book is an absolute MUST read for every American who cares about the slow but sure erosion of the document for which so very many Americans have given the last full measure of devotion.
    It should also be required reading in every Constitutional Law class. Of course, it never will be because law schools are now so infected with this "living Constitution" nonsense that to even so much as a mention of Bork's name would likely assure either straight D's as a student or a surefire blacklisting, at best, as a professor.
    So much for "diversity", one can only but conclude.
