According to Wikipedia, "Since the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness; blind justice and impartiality."
Isn't it curious that Lady Justice was always a woman, and that the
first woman justice of the US Supreme Court was Sandra Day O'Connor in
I view this description of Lady Justice as a representation of critical thinking.
But, if I look at the recent rulings
of the US Supreme Court, I do not see evidence of critical thinking. I
see two voting blocks with one judge moving between the two blocks. Is
this really justice?
