Judges' Ideology Must Be Checked, Balanced

National Law Journal, Vol. 9, No. 9 (November 10, 1986), p. 12


I write to applaud Prof. G. Robert Blakey's article, "In Antitrust, Tort and RICO Reform, Obvious Goals Cover Up Deep Issues," (NLJ, Oct. 13) and to suggest its more immediate and narrowly focused significance. Professor Blakey demonstrates that the success of the American democratic experiment has depended on the ability of the people, through governmental process, to check and balance the forces of bureaucratic capital, whether those forces be labeled "trusts," "robber barons" or "efficient monopolies."
