An originalist position on the US Constitution; calling for judicial restraint and a return to the caselaw of the nineteenth century. A genuine reactionary: no freedom of the press for films (as they aren't printed) etc. etc.

Yet, inferred was a more radical agenda: that a destabilising judiciary should be abolished or curbed; its independence abolished in favour of higher laws/values.

censorship & religion - there is no "wall of separation", constitutionally - "free speech" should probably NOT include all forms of expression.
